“Wonderful place for a Staycation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We live in Vernon and every one in a while feel the need to get away from the daily routine. Castle on the Mountain is our go to destination for a wonderful staycation. The location is great - a short drive into town but tucked away in the hills so it feels removed and the view of both Kalamalka Lake and Okanagan Lake is stunning. We have stayed in both the cottage and the main house and both are lovely. The hosts are originally from the UK and the breakfast is, in typical English fashion, fabulous. This is a great place for locals or anyone wanting a taste of Okanagan living!

Your hosts make you feel so welcome . From the moment you step into the property you can just relax and take in the wonderful views of the Okanagan Valley. Breakfast is exceptional and we just lingered longer each day enjoying home cooking and great new friends. A very quiet spot with lovely surroundings and homeliness.

My wife and I stayed in the spacious apartment suite in the main house with our own private entrance we had a great time.
During the day my wife and i would leave to tour the wineries close to vernon and some close to kelowna
just a short drive down the the highway,we managed to visit 9 wineries in the 3 days we stayed there,it was so nice to come back to the apartment suite at night,we would just sit outside and relax having a glass or two of wine from one of the bottles we had purchased during the tours that day,we really enjoyed Gray Monk winery and of course Mission Hill winery was great.
We also enjoyed some of the smaller ones arrowleaf and ex nilhilo,volcanic hills were all great the the people were even better
We would not hesitate to go back there again
A toast to our great hosts
Thanks Mike and Monique Collins

My wife and I have just returned from a five day break at Castle on the Mountain, we stayed in the Gate House Cottage and it was wonderful. The Cottage has everything you need and proved to be the perfect base for our trips out to the wonderful Okanagan Valley. I can't fault the Cottage or the welcome we received from Ray & Liz. I would recomend Castle on the Mountain to anyone.

Room Tip: The Gate House has a Blu Ray player so we took some movies with us.

There are simply no words, it just takes your breath away. You just have to go check it out for yourselves. We are newly weds and this was a fairly tale honeymoon destination for us. We stayed at the "Gate House" which was completely secluded, exceptional hosts that are there to do whatever necessary to accommadate, awesome people. Literally on top of the mountain they weren't kidding when they said castle on the mountain so it has a beautiful view. In my opinion this was the perfect getaway, what more can you ask for?We have decided to make this our yearly getaway destination thanks Ray see you next year ^_^

Excellent hosts, stayed for a few months whilst working at Silver Star mountain, they were more than hospitable by ensuring we constantly had everything we needed and even bailing us out from a vehicle breakdown. Fantastic location with beautiful views overlooking Vernon and Kalamalka lake, far enough from town to relax, but close enough to venture down for dinner or shopping. Have been lucky enough to visit in Spring and the place is just as great with plenty of wildlife roaming around. Recommend to all my friends looking for a perfect little retreat for short or long term stay.
