This B&B is without comparison to any other I've ever been in my life. I've travelled New England several times, stayed in a bunch of other bed and breakfasts in Canada as well as some other Inns in Europe, but have never seen something like this. Perfect is the only word I can find for it. If it's not for the region (I didn't think Summerland is the place to come back to...) I would wanna go back again just to be in the apples'n'quails.
But let me try to get less emtional and a little more helpful as trip advisor... Summerland reminded me of the Italian lakes. From the B&B you have a wonderful view of the Okanagan lake and some vineyards (the owners grow some wine themselves). Chris and Elaine had their house built with the idea of a B&B in mind already. Since the house is built on a hill every room has a lake view. You get window seats, a porch with comfortable chairs and your own living-room with a fireplace. If you get the chance go there as a party of four, two couples for instance. That way you have all of the downstairs area for your own privacy. If don't find the area more exciting than I did, you can puzzle, choose from a quite up to date DVD collection, make yourselves some tea or coffee and chill in the hottub. And take some time for the terrific breakfast Elaine and Chris make. They are wonderful cooks and they have interesting stories to tell...
If this B&B would've been in another place of the world we would've never been able to afford a stay there! It's much more than a five star deluxe hotel!
