From our last tenants:

"Our recent stay at the carriage house on Craig Drive was lovely. The accommodation was clean and quiet, and has everything you need to have a great stay. We enjoyed the exceptional view, especially at sunset. The bed was very comfortable, and having our own kitchen and laundry was handy as well. The location is perfect; close to shopping, within easy driving distance to the beach, yet on a quiet cul-de-sac. We highly recommend this carriage house to anyone that would like a great view, clean accommodation, and with courteous, friendly hosts. We would have loved to stay here longer!" Sincerely, Sue, Keith

The decor is modern, peaceful and clean. An abundance of windows allow you to enjoy the view and sun, while at night, blinds allow privacy and darkness for a restful sleep in the separate bedroom (king size, tempurpedic mattress new in 2018). If cooking is your passion you will find all you need to create amazing meals. The kitchen is fully equipped including a gas stove and oven, serving platters, blender, toaster, coffee maker and even a natural gas barbecue. Endless hot water, WiFi, basic cable, Blue-Ray player, surround sound stereo, sleeper sofa with a memory foam mattress and ductless a/c are included. Relax and enjoy the surrounding garden, pick fresh lettuce for a salad, suntan on the sunny deck or spend time visiting the local attractions. You can also treat yourself to a Raynor Massage, Specialized Kinesiology or Cranial Sacral session at Greenorchid massage & wellness (located downstairs from the guest suite).

Within a 20 minute drive you can experience the wineries of Naramata and Oliver, as well as the towns of Summerland and Okanagan Falls. World class rock climbing is available at Skaha Bluffs Climbing Park only 4 kilometres away. Beautiful Skaha Beach is 2 kilometres away and Okanagan Lake is 4 kilometres. Visit the historic KVR trail and enjoy an easy hike with breathtaking views of Naramata, Summerland and Okanagan Lake.

About Mike and Tami Le Poidevin-Owner/Manager


Welcome to Craig Drive! I work on site as a Raynor Massage Practitioner and Specialized Kinesiology Practitioner, my husband Mike runs a painting company. We love our property and take great pride in presenting it as a clean, comfortable home away from home. We love to garden and encourage our guests to wander through the yard, pick some veggies for dinner or sunflowers to enjoy in the guest suite. We have three teenagers and enjoy skiing, boarding, biking, hiking and rock climbing. We love to meet new people and hope to travel more ourselves one day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mike and Tami,

Thanks for having us in your lovely carriage house! We had a lovely stay in Penticton and had the perfect launching pad here on Craig Drive!

We'll be visiting again and will be in touch!

All the best. Our only regret-that we didn't get time for a massage! Next time....

Perfect Wine Tour Springboard

  • 5 of 5

We love coming to the Okanagan once a year and touring the local Wineries. Our Penticton Carriage House was the perfect property to do this. It is close to restaurants and other businesses within Penticton, as well as being central to the Oliver area, Naramata area, and West Kelowna Wineries.

The Carriage House itself is lovingly cared for by our hosts, and offers a quiet, air conditioned, roomy environment perfect for a little getaway. Step out on the deck in the morning with a coffee and a danish, or barbecue up a burger for dinner, and you are greeted with a valley vista memorable in every way.

Highly recommended

Stunning property with beautiful garden and lovely views from the private deck

  • 5 of 5

The owners' hospitality and attention to detail made us feel right at home. The private deck was relaxing for breakfast and coffee and beautiful at sunset. The carriage house was fully stocked with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. This was the perfect launching point for our adventures in the area. Canoeing, hiking, biking, wine tours and lounging at the beach. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing and adventurous stay.
