Why Aileen Houston chose Penticton
Gorgeous Orchard with spectacular cherry tree, apricot tree, 2 plum trees, pear tree, 2 apple trees.. Loads of light as house has an abundance of windows. The suites transition seamlessly from the kitchens to the decks and outdoor dining under the Cherry Tree or the Golden Rain Tree beside the fountain; perfect for enjoying morning coffee, sipping wine, or bbqing. Great neighbourhood close to downtown, and wineries. KVR Trail is right across the road which is perfect for cycling, running, walking the dog, etc. The weather in Penticton is the best in Canada. Orchard Suites is close to the beach and the Penticton Marina. Okanagan Lake is 80 miles long and is perfect for boating as you can easily moor in lots of quaint places, like Naramata, Summerland, Peachland, Kelowna, and lots of parks and coves that are beautiful and peaceful.

We loved staying at Aileen and Duncan's suite!
The space is bigger than expected, equipped with anything you could possibly need and close enough to town but at the same time in a very quiet location.
Aileen and Duncan were very kind and helpful.
We would definitely stay at the Pear Suite again and will recommend it to friends and family.
Lovely, clean suite with all the amenities of a home.
Lovely, clean, two bedroom suite with all the amenities of a home. The suite gave us more privacy, space than a hotel room. Barbeque, deck and back yard. We enjoyed our stay, would come back and recommend to family and friends. Heres hoping next winter is warmer with less snow, lol. Therese and Denis
Very comfortable suite, has everything you would need kitchen is well stocked. Beds are very comfortable. Location is great too, easy walk to downtown and right on the kvr. Aileen and Duncan are excellent and easy going hosts. Would definitely stay here again.
great little suite
The location was perfect, walking distance to main street and at least one winery. The beds were very comfortable. We didn't use the yard or deck due to weather, but the yard is cute. The suite was clean and tidy. Eileen was pleasant and accommodating. It would have been nice to have an ironing board, and the toaster didn't work but Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend The Pear Suite.
Thanks for your review.
I just checked the toaster and it works fine. We do have an ironing board available. We keep it in the common hallway for guests to use so we don’t have 4 ironing boards taking up space. If you ever need assistance, we are on site and would replace or fix or provide whatever is necessary. All you have to do is ask.
Aileen and Duncan
The suite was accurate as shown in the pictures. The kitchen was easy to work in and had all equipment needed to prepare a meal. The king size bed mattress was exceptionally comfortable (we didn't use the other bedroom, so unable to comment on that bed). Quiet. Handy to the Naramata Bench road and wineries.
Thank you Toni and Hugh ! It was lovely hosting you . Enjoyed our short chats about your winery and restaurant outings. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again next year.
