I call my little house 'Sonora Sage' after the Sonora Desert which runs from the southern point of Mexico to it's northernmost point in the South Okanagan. Desert weather and vegetation makes the South Okanagan unique in Canada. Desert plants survive and thrive as the summers are hot and usually drier than anywhere else in Canada. Long summers mean that outdoor activities can be enjoyed to the max and all within minutes of our house. Penticton has miles and miles of beautiful beaches, vineyards, orchards and Kettle Valley biking/hiking trails with awesome views of the lakes and mountains. Apex Mountain Resort is famous for it's blue skies and powder snow. Skiing, snowshoeing or outdoor skating are all within 20 minutes of the city. Or, if you just need some solo time to read, meditate or create your next novel you will find our little house the quiet retreat you are looking for.

Penticton is unique.. It is a small town with a lot to offer...clean air, a beautiful fresh water lake at each end of the city,
Summer...hot and deserty. (is that a word?) !
Spring:.. great for walking, biking and hiking, ...Fall brings a huge harvest from the many growers of fresh produce as well as apples, pears and grapes are ready to be picked. The fall wine festival is tops, and crisper weather brings a promise of snow in the mountains for those waiting for their first days of skiing and snowshoeing. Penticton is a friendly and safe community featuring outdoor adventure as well as some great shops, galleries and restaurants. We also have an incredible community centre if you are looking for an exercise class or a swim in the cooler months.
