Jack and Alice will treat you like family. Stayed for two nights in this extremely quiet and private B&B. We used this as our base for wine touring the Oliver/Osoyoos area. Great place to hang your hat and come and go as you may. In the evening you will be treated to star gazing on a professional telescope. Unbelievable! Thank... More

We stayed three nights at this unique and wonderful bed and breakfast. Jack and Alice Newton are amazing hosts, and create an atmosphere where you feel like extended family. The breakfasts were wonderful, the view down to the valley and up to the heavens is sublime. The astronomy sessions with Jack were great fun. Despite being a world-renowned astronomer and... More

This was a great stay. The property and the rooms where amazing. Breakfast was top notch. I recommend this B&B anytime. Sun or rain our host and hostess were always great and they helped us by giving ideas on places to visit.

First, I would like to thank both Jack & Alice for being such great hosts. We spent one night at the Observatory in June 2014 and we will never forget it! The view is gorgeous and the friendly hummingbird visitor was a thrill for our children. The space decor matched the B&B perfectly. Beds were very comfy and the kids... More

This is more than a B & B - Jack & Alice are great hosts and offer very comfortable accommodation with the added bonus of offering entertainment and being able to view the night skies in their attached observatory. The humour at the breakfast table is also something not to be missed. Peter & Wyn Aldous, Geraldine, New Zealand

My business, an adventure travel company specializing in geology tours, has booked rooms at the Observatory for 15+ years. Our guests have never been disappointed. Jack does a fabulous job of introducing novices to astronomy, while serious star-gazers will delight in his detailed knowledge of the cosmos. State of the art photo equipment is available, so you can take home... More

I thought this place looked interesting when we were looking for a place to stay in Osoyoos. Though my husband and I don't know much about astronomy, we thought it would be an experience. It was so much more than that! Alice and Jack are so warm and welcoming. The room we had (the Saturn room) was amazing, with it's... More
