In 2016 we purchased 10 acres of mountain top view property on the mountain (East) above the City of Penticton as a weekend getaway from our home on Vancouver's North Shore Not long after we couldn't resist living here full time! ​ I (Kara) was born in Vancouver and lived there most of my life. Darren was raised on a farm in Saskatchewan and moved to Vancouver shortly after high school. I have a background in Marketing & Tourism working with Whistler Blackcomb (WB) and Darren in Commercial Facility Management We traded running on the Ambleside & Stanley Park seawalls for the Kettle Valley Railway (KVR) trails. Leaving behind the lower mainland's rainy weather in exchange for long hot summers and cozy snowy winters in BC's wine country ​ We miss WB but LOVE 'Champagne Powder' at Apex Mountain Resort (43 km from Grinch Ranch) ​ Penticton is a fast growing, wine focused urban community and it often reminds us of Napa Valley. Wine touring in the Okanagan Valley is our regular social activity With family roots in Santa Barbara CA, we wanted to pull a hint of Santa Barbara Wine Country's relaxed feel into our newly built guest wing that we have been operating as a B&B since June 2019 We look forward to hosting you at Grinch Ranch! ​ Cheers, Kara & Darren
