We have been trying to stay at this B&B for quite some time, but our schedule and their availability never seemed to mesh until now. We were so happy to have finally been able to stay for 1 night. We were anxious to have the opportunity to go up to Jack's observatory and see the stars! Jack speaks so knowledgeably... More

A friend had raved about this place, so we just had to see for ourselves. It was somewhat disappointing that the date we chose nine months ago turned out to be completely cloudy, but we still had a wonderful experience watching a 3-D movie about the onsite Hubble repairs, in Jack's marvelous theater. Jack gave us so much information, my... More

I really cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay with Jack and Alice. We were celebrating my husband's 40th birthday, and they opened their home to us so readily! We were given an upgrade because we were staying so long, and we arrived to a bottle of champagne in the room. We had such an amazing time in the... More

Where can you get a stunning view, a comfortable room, a gourmet breakfast, genuine, warm hospitality, a stargazing experience with lecture by a passionate hobby astronomer all wrapped into one at a reasonable rate? Jack and Alice Newton's Observatory B&B is such a place. In the evening we enjoyed a spectacular sunset, sitting on our patio, overlooking the valley below.... More

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...

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 if you like astronomy or not, you cannot go wrong with the Observatory B&B. The B&B overseas the whole town. 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
