About Carol Gutsell

I have lived my whole life in the Penticton/Summerland area and love the four season beauty of the area.

Why Carol Gutsell chose Okanagan Valley

Centrally located in the South Okanagan, 5 minutes north of Penticton, 5 minutes south of Summerland right near Okanagan Lake. This Cherry orchard property has been in my family for over 60 years and is a beautiful place to center your Okanagan vacation.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy the views of the lake and mountains while in the the house or on the deck. Have a refreshing walk, or jog, around Trout Creek with lots of paths along the lake. This property Is very quiet, and private. Only have one quiet neighbour, and the rest is surrounded by trees, a huge eagle often lands on the top of a tall birch in my yard.

Lovely home in beautiful Summerland

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 8 days at Carol's lovely home and we enjoyed every moment of it. The house is on an excellent location, very neat and clean, comfortable, quite and peaceful. Carol is a wonderful person who became our dear friend. We hope to return for many more summers in the future.

We've been to Okanagan area every year for the past ten years. This was our first time in Summerland, and we didn't want to leave. Carol and Gordon are just amazing hosts and I'm looking forward to be back at their place. The best beaches in the area, great location, and a lot of sunflowers in the house :).

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

Carol is a wonderful hostess who helped to make our vacation truly enjoyable. She has great recommendations for activities and where to buy the best peaches! We couldn't have asked for a better local connection. The house is well located within walking distance to Sun Oka beach and tennis courts. It's just a few minutes drive into Summerland and 10 to Penticton. You can walk to 8th Generation Vineyard which has exceptional wines. The house is extremely clean with a well-stocked kitchen. The beds and pillows are comfortable, there are ample fans and good A/C, and there is a huge deck which is where we ate almost all of our meals - fantastic place for morning coffee or evening wine. We were not bothered by the proximity to the highway. The yard is nice and big and our kids enjoyed running through the cherry orchard. I would recommend this home without reservation.

Lovely home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The welcoming, peaceful atmosphere of this vacation home and generally the entire cherry orchard is a warm and comfortable living space for any families or couples looking to relax in beautiful Summerland. We were very impressed with the cleanliness and setup of the house, as well as the bright natural lighting and beautiful scenery from the balcony. The location is also very convenient, close to the clean, warm Sun-Oka beach and not far from Penticton. Carol (the lovely owner) recommended we visit the nearby Giant's Head,

which was a very interesting and pleasant valley to explore and hike around. Definitely worth the visit! We had a peaceful stay and would definitely recommend Carol's vacation home to everyone!
