Burrowing Owl Wine is award winning and they have done everything right in the design of the Guest House. The location is wonderful and all the rooms look west over the vineyards and the valley. Lower level had direct access from private patios to lovely pool and upper floors have even better views. Rooms design is great and it felt... More

Is there much use in a review that can't finf any fault, only praise? 10/10 in all regards, from the room and service to the restaurant and wine shop. This was our first break away without the children since they were born nine years ago. And we couldn't have chosen a better spot. And to top it off, I almost... More

I've stayed in some hotels in the world that had amazing views and the Burrowing Owl ranks right up there. The guest house is surrounded by vineyards in every direction, you are literally right in the middle. With mountains on one side and the valley in the other the views are spectacular. The rooms themselves are top quality and very... More

My husband is an amateur wine connoisseur, he was surprised about how much the quality of canadian wine has improved in the past few years. I don't know too much about wines, only the ones I Like and the ones I don't like. The Burrowing Owl pinot gris is definitely at the top of my list. The winery has an... More

This small guest house is a gem. It is located at the heart of the Burrowing Owl vineyards, one of the best in the Okanagan Valley. The room was clean, well-laid out, spacious, bright and had a balcony with a great view. The wheelchair access room was designed for someone in a wheelchair (most are not), with lots of attention...

My wife and I took a look at gasoline prices and the exchange rate with Canada, loaded the car, grabbed our copy of Roadside Geology, and headed for Osoyoos, British Columbia. We live in the greatest wine region in our known universe, Red Mountain, Benton City, Washington. However, we have no pinots, and while our reds are the best, the... More

We've been here once before and loved it so much that we came back for Valentine's Day. The menu was limited to 7 courses only, with 3 choices per course, at $50 per person - we weren't aware that it was a set menu from the website, or when booking with the hostess by phone. Never even thought to ask.... More

This was suggested as a great place to stay and dine, and we were not disappointed. A lovely room, with a beautiful view over the vineyard and pool, it was comfortable and spacious, with a complimentary bottle of wine, which was very welcome. Dinner was superb, and the staff attentive and friendly. Breakfast is included, and it was delicious and... More

I journeyed here to try a few of the wines of the area and came across the burrowing owl. Had great information from tasting area but was told i could not sit in their restaurant to try a glass of wine without a compulsory food order. I find this to be classless and will not return.

Reading through previous reviews I fully concur with their general sentiment. The rooms--and there are only ten of them--are large and very tastefully laid out. All have an excellent view and a bit of a patio. Staff are friendly and helpful. The "buffet" breakfasts are well crafted and almost everything possible is made in house. With perhaps only 20 or...
