The three of us absolutely loved this place. Owner's very nice and friendly and the animals and location are awesome. The rooms themselves are so big we were amazed, also have outside balcony with seating. Everything was so very clean. There are many animals, like a mini horse, donkeys, chickens, a lama and more and a cute adopted dog named... More

We spent 4 nights at the Running Waters B&B during the music festival in late July. It's a convenient location, about 11 km from downtown Merritt along Highway 8 towards Spence's Bridge. The house is fairly new (about 15 years old) and as a purpose-built B&B has all the amenities one could desire - large bedrooms, modern bathrooms, individual balconies,... More

It is definitely worth driving the few kilometres from Merritt to find this excellent B & B. We stayed in the Western Room which was huge with a fridge & it's own balcony. Just outside the room are tea/coffee making facilities. The animals on the estate were a bonus - children would love them. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this... More

We stayed at Running Waters on April 1st and it was delightful for many reasons. First, our hosts including Chance, their dog were very gracious and welcoming. Our room was spotless, large and comfortable with lovely views of theNicola Valley.. We loved the many friendly animals on the ranch and had a chance to feed them in the morning. We... More

This has become another regular overnight stopover for us on the route to Vancouver. Rose makes you feel totally at home. We stayed in the largest suite, it is simply huge, roomy for three on our first stay in 2013 and for four next year. Well appointed and decorated with a cowboy theme all over the house, our suite on... More

You will truly love your experience here. When you walk outside you immediately notice one of the most spectacular views your could ever see. Rose is the hostess and she is extremely kind and accommodating. The facility is beautiful. My room was extremely nice and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again without hesitation. You will not be disappointed.

We stayed at Running Waters en route from Vancouver to Calgary. What a shame it was only one night! Would happily have stayed longer. What a delightful place. Only ten km outside Merritt on road to Spences Bridge. House surrounded by small-holding of llamas, donkeys, ponies, chickens etc. Lovely ambiance to the place, a warm welcome by Rose who is...

Loved this one night stop on the way to the Okanagan, a welcome change to the faceless motels/hotels on offer. The llamas, goats and sheep make you feel like you are staying at Dr Doolittles. Rose is welcoming and discreet and is one hard-working lady! Bravo for keeping this place spotless and impeccable with all those happy animals!!!

Clean! Huge! Fun! Private! Fantastic experience. Honestly cleaner than a hotel, giant room with huge balcony, friendly animals, very private. Our only regret is that we arrived late at night so didn't get to stay too long. We will definitely stay here again next time we go through Merritt, hopefully for two nights. It is outside of Merritt but def... More
