We are a cultural tourism feast,” says Kena Cumming Cormier about her Penticton B&B and art studio, run with her husband Lawrence. “We mean it in all senses of the words! Art, food and wine!” Of course, there are the new comfortable, luxurious accommodations, with each suite featuring a studio kitchen, fireplace and private patio. Set in a scenic, convenient location, Cormier’s Studio B&B is a 10-minute walk to the best of Penticton, the Farmer’s Market, close-by wineries and restaurants. It is also at the gateway of the Naramata Wine Route and a three-block walk to the Kettle Valley Railway trail to hike, bike and walk to wineries.
You may want to stay at Cormier’s Studio B&B because of its ideal location for touring, but this is a destination, a total experience in itself, any time of the year. Treat yourself; guests even stay at Cormier’s in the off-season.
Professional artists Kena and Lawrence are your congenial hosts at this first class bed-and- breakfast with its authentic art gallery setting. Your delicious, satisfying breakfasts are creatively prepared by Kena and served to you in the art gallery-dining room overlooking scenic Okanagan Lake. “We cater to all dietary concerns,” says Kena.
“Honestly, this place was so lovely, and I can’t think of one thing I would have changed!” wrote one guest. “We stayed with Kena and Lawrence for a spur of the moment weekend getaway and could not have been happier!” wrote another. Don’t the reviews say it all?
