A girlfriends weekend away was perfect staying with Joyce and Doug! We were treated like family and all the accommodations were ideal. The view from the property is spectacular, the breakfast was delicious (fresh fruit!) and the best advice on where to go and what to see! I loved the personal touch that one would not get from a hotel.... More

Nice location with a amazing view over Penticton. Good hosts and the breakfast is fantastic. They will tell you a lot about Penticton and there is a trail starting with the B & B. The rooms and bathroom are very clean. Great location to stay.

We have made the experience that at least some of the B&Bs in the Naramata area are not comfortable to have persons with small children stay at their B&Bs for whatever reason and probably bad experience. This restriction of course you will only find out when you phone them. Regarding this B&B I would like to inform other families that... More

I am sorry that this person felt she needed to write this review. She did not stay in August as her review indicates. I do remember being asked to accommodate some small children at a very busy time when we were otherwise full of mature guests. I explained this to her, plus gave her the explanation that we have a...

Joyce and Doug are both really nice people to be around, and their b&b is a gem! Great view from the patio over the lake and the winery's. If you're a 'wine nut' this is the place to start off from.

This B&B is set in a beautiful location with lush vegetation and great views of the vineyards and the lake. The home is very well maintained and clean and the bed was very comfortable. Despite the heat wave of 40C+ during our stay, our room (the Burgundy room) remained cool and comfortable without the need for a noisy air conditioner.... More

Fantastic location, walking distance to several excellent wineries. Amazing views. Joyce & Doug are wonderful hosts, the bedrooms are spacious and immaculate. The shared lounge was perfect for us as we were travelling as a family (We had the avocado and burgundy rooms). We will definitely return when we next visit the Okanagan.
