Brin de Soleil B&B
Ranked #13 of 19 Penticton B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 24, 2009

My boyfriend and I decided to bike the Kettle Valley Railway from Myra Canyon to Penticton. We booked 2 nights at Brin de Soleil to recharge after our mini adventure. It was a sight for sore eyes after two jarring days of riding.

Neither of us had stayed at a B&B before, and we were a bit nervous about doing so. Janine and Pat were very welcoming and friendly & put us right at ease. The suites both have their own entrances, and are very private. It's in a great location, and a very easy drive to both the wineries and downtown Penticton. Plus, as if that wasn't enough - the breakfasts were delicious!!! The price is a bit steep, but well worth it! We would highly recommend Brin de Soleil (and have already done so) to our friends and family.

My wife and I stayed here for four nights and absolutely loved it.

We were quickly shown our room which was more then we expected with a little treat of cheese and crackers awaiting us. The main room was big and comfortable and opened up to our deck which overlooked the Okanagan lake, wineries and orchards. The kitchen was equipped with a microwave, small fridge, coffee maker, plates/cups and utensils. The fridge was stocked with an array of cold drinks.

The bathroom was clean and spacious and behind the door there were beach towels, and lounge chairs.

The bedroom was clean and spacious and had a reading chair, alarm, and a full closet. there was no view from the window in the bedroom but this did not bother us one bit. It actually kept the room cooler for sleeping. The view in front made up for it.

The terrace attached to the front room had our own table and umbrella were we enjoyed out breakfast in the morning. The view is great anytime you sit there but is spectacular when the sun sets behind the mountains. There are common lounge chairs in the front where you can take in the sun set and also spot a few birds and partridges as well.

Breakfast was served at 8:30 am each morning as we requested and was delicious. It consisted of local fresh fruit, Juice, and a entrée that was different every morning. We also enjoyed dinner on the patio which we picked up at the grocery store. There is a BBQ that can be used by the guest.

Brin de Soleil is located on a hill about 3 minute drive from Main Street Penticton. Surrounding it is a few houses that are well spaced out and an array of orchards and wineries. Be sure to take a ride down to Naramata where you pass many wineries that you may want to stop into and buy a bottle of wine or two to have later that night. Naramata also has a great beach that is not as crowed as the main beaches in Penticton. Naramata is about a 15 to 20 minute drive from Brin de Soleil and is very scenic.

There was also free wireless internet access.

Very enjoyable holiday, thank you!

My husband and I enjoyed a blissful weekend at Brin de Soleil sipping great Okanagan wine from our semi-private patio. The room we stayed in was tastefully decorated, clean and quite spacious. Handmade breakfasts, made with local produce, were delivered at 8am every morning. There's even a BBQ for a little "fine dining" outside on the patio. We definitely enjoyed dinner while watching the gorgeous sunsets! And Pat and Janine are fantastic, accomodating hosts!

The town of Penticton has plenty to offer the adventure-loving tourist - swimming in the Lakes, travelling down the Channel on innertubes, eating at delicious restaurants, hiking the KVR trail - we did it all! And were thankful for the big comfy bed awaiting us at the end of the day!

4 of us stayed here for 2 nights in September and would definitely recommend it to anyone. It's close to Pentiction and all the vineyards, has a great view and is fully equipped and stylishly decorated. The breakfasts were delicious, drinks in the fridge and welcome snacks were provided on arrival - great little touches made it feel really special - just be aware that as the property is on a hill the back bedroom window faces dirt but if you are sleeping there only it's not an issue. All the front windows face the lake and there's a table outside where we had our meals - fantastic!

I took my Mom for her first trip ever to the Okanagan and booked us in the Sage Suite at the Brin De Soleil B&B in Penticton. It was the perfect spot for relaxing while taking in the breathtaking views of the Naramata Bench. The fact that each of their suites are actually small apartments, allow you to feel right at home. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and the hosts were very informative and most hospitable. I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone looking for a little R&R with a breathtaking view and within short distances to many wineries.

My friend found this B&B on the east bench above Penticton, and what a find! It has two separate suites and a beautiful position above the town overlooking Lake Okanagan that gives uninterrupted, perfect views of the hills and sunsets. We practiced our 'Mediterranean' lifestyle sitting on the patio drinking local wine and eating local fruit. Breakfast was served (at a time to suit us) on the patio - occasionally accompanied by Diesel, the owner's friendly dog.
Perhaps a little more expensive than your usual accommodation, but worth splashing out a bit to give you that sense of luxury and being on holiday.
