A Rover's Rest Bed & Breakfast

2660 Balmoral Road , Blind Bay, BC VOE 1H1 Canada (Show map)


A Romantic Hideaway at Shuswap Lake! We offer three suite all with private entry and en-suite baths, most with A/C. Our outdoor hot tub is situated on a secluded part of the property, making it a great place to enjoy your partner with a glass of wine. Each morning you will be served a different, an award-winning, full hot meal, with your chose of coffee or a large selection of Stash tea. We would love to have you stay in our 4,350 sq. ft. romantic log home bed and breakfast situated on two acres of secluded alpine paradise. Come relax on the large deck or wander around the grounds; either way, you will be astounded by the spectacular views. Blind Bay looks out over Shuswap Lake. Shuswap Lake is one of the largest lakes in British Columbia’s Okanagan. Shuswap Lake has over 1,000 km of shoreline. We often see deer on the property, as well as the many birds and squirrels. A Rover's Rest Bed and Breakfast is located in the heart of British Columbia's Okanagan interior resort play land. We are located in Blind Bay, near Sorrento and Salmon Arm cities and it is halfway between Vancouver, BC and Calgary, Alberta. You can find us just 1.8 km (a tad more than a mile) off the Trans Canada Highway on Balmoral Road. A large circular driveway allows us to accommodate your vehicle and boat or snowmobile trailer easily— no unhooking if you like.

My wife and I just spent 3 nights at A Rovers Retreat B&B. We had a lovely peaceful stay. Time to sleep, talk, love and put the foundation of our marriage back in place. The privacy and peacefulness of the B&B was very refreshing. The hospitality of Kimberly and Dave was very accommodating and genuine. Thank you both for a great stay.
