This was our first trip to the Kelowna area. My husband and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. WHAT A LOCATION!! Had I known just how beautiful the area was, how friendly the people were, the variety of activities there were to do, not to mention the abundance of magnificent wines and vineyards, we would have come many years earlier.
We have enjoyed staying at B&B's during our travels as they offer what most major hotels cannot and that is a "personal" touch. It is through the host/hostesses of B&B's that we have found the best local venues, restaurants, attractions, hidden gems and met some of the most interesting people. Many people we met during our trip,were planning to spend only 1 or 2 nights in Kelowna, while passing through on their way to Vancouver, Banff, etc. What a shame. They would have missed soooh much. We spent 7 nights in the area and only scratched the surface of what the area has to offer.
Leagh, our hostess at The Hopeless Romantic B&B, is a real sweetheart. You feel immediately at ease in her home and she was incredibly knowledgeable of the area and all its attractions. This B&B is quite unlike other B&B's we have stayed at in the past. My husband and I shared the (private) beautifully decorated, fully equipped 2 bedroom apartment suite with all the amenities. Full kitchen, living room, laundry, etc. etc. No having to mingle with other guests. Robes are provided so no need to get dressed right away. Nice!!! Who wouldn't enjoy their first cup of java sitting on a private patio watching the sun rise. Each morning Leagh delivers a fantastic breakfast to you, on your patio, at a time convenient to you. No worrying about the other guests. It was a very relaxing and comfortable stay. We would definitely recommend this B&B and as far as recommending the area.......I will come back to the Okanaghan area again before I would re-visit the Sonoma area in California....that should tell you how beautiful this area is!!!!!
Make sure you stay for more than a few days and visit the Naramata area.....best wine I have ever had the pleasure to taste!!!
