Liz and Ray made us feel very welcome in their home on the mountain. Our room was spacious and comfortable. They were very kind to our little daughter (21 months). Ray's breakfast was delicious - the courses just kept coming!

This was a great highlight of our trip through the rockies. It's a young British couple with 2 children running this place living upstairs. Very friendly people. The husband checked us in in the evening when we got there, suggested a great place for dinner and gave us coupons to the place. He spent a good amount of time chatting...

We rented the Gate House for our honeymoon. We had such a great time. Enjoyed the BBQ and hot tub at night. Very quiet place to be. Ray is such a nice host. He told us where to go and what to do in the area. We loved it and cannot wait to go back... hopefully in the near future!!!

We spent the first night of our honeymoon with Ray and Liz at the Castle and could have spent the entire week there. The personal attention paid to us was amazing, as was the location and scenery. Ray suggested a great spot for us to grab dinner and was very attentive to ensure that we had everything we could possibly...

I have nothing but praise for Castle on the Mountain. The lodge is located about half way between the town of Vernon and the Silver Star Ski area on the side of a mountain overlooking the Okanagan Valley. There are about four rooms in the B&B as well as a couple of cottages on the property. The family lives above...
