CATHEDRAL CEILING 360 VIEWS

Kaleden House Rental Photos and Description

We offer the beauty of the mountains, fresh air and fresh well water, a vegetable garden with lots of greens when they are ready, as well as some new chickens. They may be laying sometime this summer but if you have kids, they'll love to help feed them. This is a working hobby farm and we are just getting underway. Two milking goats are arriving later this summer.

If anyone is interested in Yoga, we have a resident Kudalini instructor who will be doing daily yoga exercises. People are welcome to join her every morning at 6 AM.

The mountain behind the property is steep and great for hiking and exploring. There are often wild horses grazing on the fields behind us and lots of wonderful views to see if you can take the 45 minute hike to the top.

Down the road is Apex Guest Ranch and they have trail rides all summer for very reasonable rates.

Come join us in our corner of paradise. It's rough and ready and reality at it's best.

Penticton benefits from its unique setting between Okanagan and Skaha Lakes. Bounded by forested ridges, clay bank cliffs and granite bluffs with easy access to mountain lakes and winter resorts, there's a strong focus on outdoor recreation that can be experienced in all seasons.

But Penticton is also centred in Okanagan wine country and rich agricultural lands provide fresh ingredients for local menus, making this a growing food and wine destination with an abundance of urban attractions for culturally-minded visitors.

Water Activities

With the beaches of Okanagan Lake to the north and Skaha Lake to the south, summer in Penticton is the time to get wet. Swim, fish, kayak, wakeboard, water ski, jet ski, windsurf and kite surf. On Okanagan Lake, beginners try a tandem flight, experts fly solo, with Penticton Parasail Adventures. Board the Casabella Princess for an afternoon cruise.

Skaha Lake is home to even more adventure with excellent conditions for wind and kite surfers. Public boat launch areas on both lakes provide easy access for visitors towing their own boats and all the toys are readily available for rent.

For the ultimate lazy summer day, join the party floating the Okanagan River Channel that connects the two lakes. Rent a tube from Coyote Cruises or bring one and take their shuttle. Anglers cast a line in the big lakes or take to the high country.

Land Activities

Hiking and cycling trails abound in and around Penticton. Stroll the Kiwanis Promenade along Okanagan Beach, follow the pathway beside the Okanagan River Channel or set off for Munson Mountain lookout. Take to the countryside for a quiet ride through vineyards and orchards, check out the scenery and historic sites on the KVR (Kettle Valley Railway) Trail or head to Ellis Canyon in the highlands. To jack up the adrenaline, mountain bikers attack the technical challenges of Three Blind Mice trails, while rock climbers tackle the world famous Skaha Bluffs.

About Anne Essler

Our corner of paradise is owned by 4 of us: Anne, a recent widower, 1 son, Regan, and 2 daughters, Meredith and Colleen. Two grandsons, Iian (10) and Rio (4) are also here to help entertain the guests, take care of the animals, pick the raspberries and do some weeding.

Anne Essler purchased this house in 2002

Why Anne Essler chose Kaleden

Grandpa was raised around Penticton and returned here with his family after retirement. He remembers Penticton when it was all orchards and gardens, with only 5000 people, and not the 40,000 here now.

What makes this house unique

Kids love this place because of the animals and the other kids here to show them around. The trampoline holds great attraction. Even when it is scorching hot in town, there's always a breeze out here at night to cool things off and keep the insects gone.

A rustic getaway for the family

  • 4 of 5
Our Family of six stayed in one of the cabins on this property. The owners are very accommodating and friendly. The views are spectacular and our kids loved the goats and chickens. There was a robin's nest right outside the cabin and we enjoyed watching the birds being fed. It was peaceful and quiet and we truly felt relaxed during our stay. We loved using the barbeque and relaxing on the porch with a glass of wine. This is a great affordable getaway. We were so impressed we have booked two weeks for next summer.

Country Living At It's Finest.

Country Living At It's Finest.
  • 5 of 5
We had a late arrival as we had under estimated the travel time from Calgary. They were extremely hospitable to this and were grateful we called ahead to give them a heads up. Our first morning, we had breakfast on the deck and enjoyed the peace and quiet for the country. Their dogs came over and introduced themselves and were guarded but friendly as I would expect any country dog to be.
We spent our days touring around the local towns and our evenings enjoying sitting on the deck enjoying the stars and piece and quiet. It's amazing how much sound towns and cities have that you don't realize exists until you are in the country.
It is very easy to walk up the mountain outside the house for a spectacular view of the local valley area.
The house was clean and neat. Roomy and comfortable. Definitely worth staying at
We had easy access to the local towns and Apex Ski Resort. The roads are well maintained.
We only had one flaw with our time their. The night we arrived the place was extremely hot. Windows had not been open to allow evening breezes to cool the place

Has potential but avoid this rental if you want peace and quiet

  • 1 of 5
This rental is the top portion of a beautifully built log house, located 20 mins from Penticton, on a hobby farm complete with Goats and Chickens and a beautiful garden. When we first arrived we were happy with the cleanliness of the suite and the views were beautiful. Unfortunately it seems as though some one had not stayed in the suite for sometime as there were some insects [dead and alive] in the towels, kitchen drawers and along the window sills. The unit is well equipped and the beds were comfortable. Do not expect to sleep in however because there are no curtains on any windows and the bedrooms face the sun.
Our largest complaint however was the noise factor. There were quite a few people living in the downstairs portion and the noise level was overwhelming. Slamming doors [So loud I jumped off the sofa...] and heavy foot steps were the worst of it. It was terrible. We tried to keep the TV on to drown their noise but even at the loudest setting it didn't help. From 6 am until 11 pm the noise went on and it really ruined our stay. We ended up packing up and leaving after 2 nights, forfeiting the remainder of our stay. That was 1 week ago and we have yet to hear from the manager as she was unavailable when we left. We did inform the people downstairs that we were leaving due to their extreme noisiness. I don't think that I should have to remind someone who is running a business like this, to " be quiet".
Over all this suite was charming, well equipped and semi clean . It has great potential if the people downstairs can learn to not slam doors [so much that the house shook] and make so much noise. I was really disappointed with the lack of follow up from the management.

This is a delightful place in a great part of the country. The ranch has a very warm and friendly atmosphere and great hiking from there.
