Steve welcomed us with great hospitality. The room was great. The views from the deck spectacular. At breakfast we met Chrissy who also was most welcoming. The breakfast was 5 Star. Best I've ever had at a B&B.. We will definitely stay there again. Sharon

The time spent at this B&B was the highlight of our one week Okanagan get away. The beautiful views, gourmet three-course breakfasts, the serenity, hospitality, and proximity to a wonderful trail system make this B&B a real gem! Russ & Linda Parker

yummy creations

Tom and I want to thank the both of you for your hospitality and kindness. You are such a lovely couple and gracious hosts. Your B&B is something truly special, and we were very fortunate to have stayed with you. As well, we are still talking about your gourmet breakfasts we enjoyed each morning while socializing with the other guests. Thanks Steve for your yummy creations (and for trying new dishes with us), and thanks to Chrissy for helping you out in the kitchen. You make a great team!! Your breakfasts were to die for …. delicious and decadent all the way. Now we have to work on losing a few pounds! We had a wonderful time and we were thrilled to have been able to celebrate our Anniversary at 'A View of the Lake'. Our visit with you will always hold a special place in our hearts and we have lots of photos to remember our special occasion. We plan on coming back again next year to see you. Be prepared and heads up, as our next visit we hope to bring along with us 6 other people (3 couples) so that we can have Steve cook up a gourmet feast in his Demonstration Kitchen. Thank you again for such a wonderful time, and take care. Cheers, Denise and Tom

Highly recommended! Stayed here three days in June, and enjoyed our stay great. Steve and Chrissy are very friendly, rooms spacious and modern, spacious living room with bar and fridge, and the new terrace has spectacular views of Kelowna. Breakfast (on the terrace!) Was truly a 3-course menu with all the trimmings. Steve received many helpful tips for excursions and restaurants. Our best B & B for years, and definitely recommended! Chris and Tony - Belgium

Fantastisch verblijf !

4.2 on July 24, 2010

Echt een aanrader ! Verbleven hier 3 dagen in juni, en genoten van ons superverblijf. Steve en Chrissy zijn heel gemoedelijk, kamers ruim en modern, ruime living met bar en frigo en het nieuwe grote terras heeft een fantastisch zicht op Kelowna. Het ontbijt (op het terras!) was waarachtig een 3-gangen menu met alles erop en eraan. Ontvingen van Steve heel nuttige tips voor uitstappen en restaurants. Ons beste B&B sinds jaren, en beslist een aanrader! Chris en Tony - België
