Every time I visit the Shuswap and Sicamous, I stay at the Artist's House B&B. It's simply a beautiful home, very restful, peaceful and beautifully decorated. It's one minute from downtown Sicamous, the boat launch and waterfront pubs and restaurants. The breakfast's served are nothing short of amazing.

I am compelled to book my long weekend again and wanted to tell you all what a special place this home is, and how LOVELY Victoria is!

Victoria, you are absolutely the best host!!! Your bed and breakfast is a hidden gem. We stayed there for 2 nights while my brother was visiting from Europe. We were the only guests at that time and Victoria made us feel like at home. Everything was so clean and comfortable. Something different from the usual with all the antique decoration.... More

A place with a difference ! A delightful arts-and-crafts heritage home. Highly recommended if you are looking for a warm welcome, interesting conversation, good food and a home where every item tells it's own story. If you are looking for soulless, minimalist motel or hotel, look elsewhere ! Victoria is an excellent, thoughtful hostess. Nothing was too much trouble, lots... More

you make it all worthwhile! when I first opened the B&B I had never really stayed in a B&B so I had my own notion as to what it should be. I am an artist so firstly I liked to create form paintings to space . I like the details and to honor the past but add some fun &... More

The most wonderful guest house we have stayed at. Victoria is so welcoming, from the blackboard outside welcoming you by name, to the home made wonderful scones at breakfast. Beautiful views over the lake, lovely rooms and superb hospitality. It was so good we booked for the next week for our return journey from Vancouver Island, on our way back... More

We stayed here while on a leisurely drive to Banff from Vancouver in June. The house had a lot of charm and character. It was an old historical house, but the owners kept it very well. We stayed in the blue room with a very cute and peaceful ambiance. The washroom was down the hall with a British style sink... More

When you arrive you know that you have found something special......dead end......in the woods, overlooking the lake surrounded by mountains. Then when you meet Victoria it feels like you are coming to the family cottage for the weekend. Very sweet and down to earth and the best breakfast I have ever had in a B&B. My sister and I had...

We had a lovely stay during our son's Spring Break. Sadly, we stayed for only one night at the Artist's House and Heritage B&B. The place is charming, with eclectic decor and surrounded by interesting history. Make sure you look over the books about the Historical CPR Hotel. The room we stayed in (The Blue Room) on the second floor... More
