Alice and Jack are wonderful hosts. Their home is located far above Osoyoos and you get wonderful views of the valley from your room. The star gazing through the telescope with Jack was really incredible. We knew very little about the universe and now we know there is a huge amount to learn, and Jack can teach you! We also... More

Views of the valley and Osoyoos were wonderful. Views from Jack's telescope were even more wonderful. His knowledge and sense of humour are one of a kind. The rooms were very clean, roomy and comfortable. Every morning we started the day with Alice's delicious breakfasts. What a great place to stay, we will be back!

Regardless which room you choose, the balcony faces the town with endless sky and mountain view. Jack and Alice greets you with the warmest smiles and personalities. Jack has quite a sense of humour. Alice provides a wonderful fresh... More

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
