The Summer Beach Report!

Well summer is in full swing in Penticton, and in Penticton we’re all about the BEACHES! If you haven’t been here, you should know that we have beautiful beaches on the north and south ends of town. And Casa Grande Inn is Penticton ONLY Bed and Breakfast across from Okanagan Beach on Lakeshore drive, on the north end of town. Here is a shot I took with Instagram just the other day, of the beach right out front of Casa Grande Inn.

We have seen some fantastic changes to the waterfront. There is talk of a whole expansion project offering a day marina behind the SS Sicamous (the large boat/museum/event centre dry docked on the beach in front of Casa. However, until then the have made it possible for people to pull up their boats and seadoos right to the beach right in front of Casa! There is even opportunity to rent a variety of boats, right on the beach!

Here’s something you don’t see everyday…unless you’re staying at Casa Grande Inn…ROCKET MAN! Actually the device is called Flyboard Jet Boots…google it, it’s cool! And YES you can give them a try, right out front of Casa Grande Inn! The guys are really nice who operate it, and they give really great instructions. You are guaranteed to fly, and most people get the hang of it right away!

Plus Don’t forget about the Famous River Channel Float, the entrance to the channel is just steps away from us! You jus hop on a floaty and float doen the channel all the way to Skaha beach. At the half way mark, you might even hear Relvis singing Elvis Tunes at the REZtaurant, a great place to eat by the way!

Of course, Penticton is so much more than just beaches, like wineries, fruit stands, markets, festivals, biking, hiking, bird watching, horseback riding, and much much more. Actually Peach fest is this week! But I just felt like talking about our beaches today! I think you should come and check them out! Book your stay at Casa Grande Inn by calling us at 250-276-3030. Elise our Innkeeper is fluent in French and English, and will help you with all your reservation needs!
Now I’m heading to the Beach! See you there!
Cheers

June fun in the Okanagan Sun!

Special Occasion
June has arrived, and with it comes so many exciting events likes weddings, reunions, anniversaries, concerts, festivals and much much more. At Casa Grande Inn, we love weddings! The rose garden across the street hosts many weddings over the summer, and of course it’s a spectacular place to have your wedding photos taken. We often sit on our patio and admire all the beautiful brides and the wedding parties as they carry on with their special day. Our location makes Casa Grande Inn the perfect place to stay for weddings. We have a very private room called the Siesta Room that is perfect for the bride and groom as it is outside of the main Bed and Breakfast. Then we have 5 other rooms available for members of the wedding party, family and friends. We have a few very large patios where all the guests can sit and enjoy a glass of wine and mingle. If the weather isn’t nice our common living room is another great place to visit. Plus the Historic SS Sicamous is also right across the street, and it also hosts many events, fundraisers and weddings.

classic
June is also the month when we start to see more and more classics on the road. Penticton is full of classic cars, trucks and motorcycles. They are so gorgeous! We love to sit on the front lakeview patio and watch all the vehicles cruise by. Especially when the classics are out, which is almost every day! Besides the weather, another reason classics are so popular in Penticton is because of a fantastic classic car festival called the Peach City Beach Cruise. It’s June 22 – 24 this year, and falls on the same weekend as the Penticton Elvis Festival! This weekend will be rocking with live music, Elvis tribute artists, and cool classics. This year’s headliner at the Penticton Elvis Fest is Gino Monopoli. He is an amazing Elvis Tribute Artist, make sure you get tickets to see his Saturday night show at the PTCC (Penticton Trade & Convention Centre) He has stayed at Casa Grande Inn many times, and we have unofficially renamed the Hideaway after him! (at his request)

wine tours
June is also the perfect month to go on a wine tour. The botteling is done and the new releases are out. Many wines are limited production, and sell out early summer. So by wine touring now, you have an opportunity to sample and purchase many of these sell outs, before they sell out.

bike
