Cormier's Studio
Ranked #1 of 19 Penticton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 November 2016

While traveling for work, it is always much more comfortable and relaxing to stay in a home away from home, this was no exception! This B&B is on my government approved accommodation list for work and was perfect for a quiet, cozy, work evening retreat before a big meeting. It is wonderfully located, I took an evening run down along the lake - very safe and very little traffic. I will be staying here again if I need accommodation in Penticton for work...I'm also thinking I'll plan a romantic getaway with my husband, this was absolutely a gorgeous home.

Happy New Year! I am a little late in responding but wanted to thank you for a great review. We look forward to seeing you sometime in 2017, maybe then the snow will be gone & the days will be longer so you could do a KVR jog instead, it is so beautiful!
Cheers, Kena & Lawrence

For our first romantic getaway together, my partner and I found this B&B to be exactly what we needed! We stayed in the Courtyard Suite, which had beautiful contemporary art on the walls and an intimate cafe table and chairs in the kitchen. The room was cozy, a perfect size to accommodate our much needed weekend away from the world. Kena, our hostess, over-exceeded our expectations, providing the quiet and rest desired. The location was perfect; close to amenities, but on the outskirts of a beautiful hill for privacy. Ross and I are looking forward to making this an annual stay!

Room Tip: The Courtyard Suite was by the main entrance door so we did hear traffic coming in and out.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write us a great review! So pleased we were able to provide you with everything you needed for that quiet getaway. I'm not about to take all the credit though, as the time of year you travelled here helped with the "quiet", as in off season there are no sounds of summer, which living just above the lake, beach & marina, those happy summer sounds do travel!
Look forward to seeing you folks at a future date for another visit!

Lovely B & B, clean and comfortable, we were in the courtyard suite. We opted to have breakfast across the road, the only small fault was the mattress was a little too soft for us, but realize we are being very picky. Hostess was delightful and even presented us a glass of wine upon our arrival. Yes we would recommend the place to others.

Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review for us. Just so you know, when purchasing mattresses I always opt for firm, unfortunately, our firm, in that suite, was not firm enough for you, sorry about that! I have, in fact, returned a mattress after sleeping on it for a few nights as it wasn't firm enough, so I "get" what you mean. The bed in that suite is my "go to" when I need a good nights sleep, so we all have different interpretations of firm.
Cheers,
Kena

After a wonderful visit to Penticton and the Cormier's Studio last year, we were drawn back to explore more of the regions secrets. Kena's breakfasts are not to be missed and can compete with any 4 star establishment that comes with great personal service, freshest ingredients, and attention to our whims.
We had the opportunity this year to try a couple nights in the largest unit with the lake view from the patio as well as to have a night in our familiar smaller end unit, which also has all the comforts required in an elegant gallery setting.
We go to Penticton for the public Gallery, to see what is new in Kena and Lawrence's studio, and to enjoy the wine tastings , plus this year we added cycling on the Kettle Valley Trails. What a wonderful area to explore for a brief vacation from the lower mainland. Cormier's also, we found out, provide secure storage for our bikes and , if required - for our wine purchases.

Friendly, comfortable, and easy going - in a perfect location. 10 out of 10.

Why thank you Georgette & Peter, it was a pleasure to have you stay with us once again! For those of us living in Penticton, who do not have the space for a very large veggie garden, we are blessed to have the best ever Farmer's market which runs from May to the end of October, thus doing fresh as best is pretty easy, come November, it is back to the supermarket.
Ttrust you enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving & look forward to a future visit!
Cheers,
Kena & Lawrence

Corniers was the perfect location for a wine themed visit to the Okanagan with friends. We occupied all 3 rooms which were comfortable, well laid out and very clean. Our hosts were most helpful with advice about local restaurants and activities. We will be back!

My 4-night stay at Cormier's Studio was wonderful!! I loved the bedroom...immaculately clean, modern tasteful decor, crisp and fresh bed linen, very comfortable mattress, great shower, well equipped kitchenette, and an outdoor private sitting area. Very special is the beautiful art work displayed inside and out, done by Kena and Lawrence!!
Well located within walking distance to downtown, to breakfast eatery across the street, and walking trails to view the local scenery.
Don't forget to try Kena's delicious breakfast selections. Well worth it!!
I can hardly wait to go back again!

We thank you for taking the time to write an awesome review of our B&B. Appreciate the comments on our breakfasts, as they are optional at our B&B, not everyone takes the time to enjoy them & comment. We were finding that many of our guests did not want our large breakfast offering, hence we changed them to optional, after all, why pay for something you do not wish. I know myself, I could not eat a large breakfast every day, especially knowing I was heading off for the day winery hoping & looking for a yummy lunch along the way! We are delighted the space suited the two of you and were happy to have you in our home.......... we look forward to seeing you on another visit!

Friendly hosts providing lots of local information. Fantastic breakfasts! Our room decor was lovely and of top quality. Comfortable bed with crisp linens; all amenities; outdoor private patio; communal deck with seating and table and chairs overlooking the lake. Quiet yet convenient to downtown. Difficult to find anything to criticize or to have improved upon.
