Who would have known this little area of British Columbia was so amazing. We went to bed in Canada and felt we had woken in South Africa! Semi arid mountains with lush green vineyards filling the valley between Osoyoos and Oliver. The wineries have amazing wine tastings and many quality restaurants. Burrowing Owl is no exception. It's web site does... More

We stayed here for 3 nights about a month ago. The location of this guesthouse is fantastic: quiet, scenic yet close to lots of other wineries and close to town. Our room was on the pool level, which was perfect, as we could just walk right out of our room and down to the pool deck to lounge. The rooms... More

Burrowing Owl is simply the best place to stayin in the southern Okanagan if you are wine touring. The setting and the views are amazing. The restaurant on the property is great as is the morning breakfast for guest house guests. I loved sitting on our terrace looking out a the vineyards and swimming in the beautiful pool. The only...

Burrowing Owl continues to be our favourite place to stay the Kelowna, Oliver area. The location at the centre of the vineyard is beautiful, quiet, and calming. The accommodations are first class, staff are absolutely wonderful. The restaurant is equally a wonderful experience, with great food, exceptional service and the wine......mmmmmmmmm. Love Burrowing Owl wine. My only criticism, and this... More

This was our second time here and it was even better than we remembered. The guest house is easily 5 stars and boasts spectacular views of vineyard. The staff are very friendly and eager to help in any way they can. The restaurant is amazing and we enjoyed delicious first class dinners with excellent service provided. We were not able... More

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...
