E'Laysa Guesthouse and Vineyard Retreat
Ranked #2 of 19 Penticton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 20, 2011

We stayed for two nights at the Serenata and combined business and pleasure. The rooms were expensive but luxurious and much better than a hotel. The setting is stunning in the vineyards and there are lots of places for quiet reading time and a view of the locall vineyards. The rooms are done with large tubs and fireplaces and the hosts were gracious . Breakfasts were large fruit cocktails, muffins or other baked good and a delicious hot dish which was different every day. This place would be ideal as a get away with some close friends or family and each room was unique . Great location to explore the local wineries and to access the Kettle Valley trail.

We would like to thank both Linda and Mike, our hosts, for the wonderful stay. The guesthouse was absolutely luxurious and spotless. We were made to feel at home as soon as we walked through the front door. It was the small touches that made the difference for us (ie soothing music CD in our room). And the breakfast was very gourmet.

They kindly allowed us to borrow their bikes so that we can cycle the Kettle Valley Trail which offered stunning views and made our trip very memorable.

We would highly recommend this guesthouse!

My wife and I had a wonderful time with our stay at the Serenata Guesthouse. Our room was spacious and well appointed with top notch furnishings and the ensuite bathroom was spectacular. Views from our balcony were picture perfect. The gourmet breakfast was as described. This accommodation was one of the finest we have stayed in and worth every penny. Our hosts were very accommodating and helpful in every way. The Serenata also hosts a weekly dinner event and we were lucky to partake in the Laughing Stock Wine pairing evening. The host chef was remarkable and the wines second to none. This is definitely a must and we recommend that you reserve early for this or you may be dissappointed.

This B&B is perfection! Mike and Linda were very welcoming and attentive, they treated us like old friends from the moment we arrived. We did the full experience, the Thursday night Pairing Dinner and the Romantic Weekend. The Thursday night dinner was the quality of a very high end urban restaurant, served in a setting that looks like it is out of a romantic movie. It was a gourmet feast served outside next to the garden under an awning tent with candlelight and flowers at the long table... exquisite.

The romantic weekend was done to perfection. We went out for a dinner at a local winery based on Linda's recommendation and reservation (she got us the best seat in the house too!). We returned to a room with sparkling wine, chocolate covered strawberries, little snacks and rose petals around our bed and leading up the steps into the jacuzzi tub... they made it a magical evening.

I am also a stickler for cleanliness anywhere I stay and this place is utterly spotless and dust free! I couldn't recommend it higher... we were absolutely delighted with our three nights there.

Room Tip: We got the deluxe garden view suite. It was large, on the second floor and had a lovely view balcon...

Stayed 2 nights in the suite. 2 couples for wine touring and relaxation. Very well located in close proximity to the wineries on the Naramata bench. Comfy bed and nice full kitchen, bbq outside on a private patio. Seperate entrance from main house. Breakfasts were nice and all a very relaxing spot. We would go back.

Linda and Mike's guesthouse is one of the best we have ever stayed in. From the moment we arrived we were treated with warmth and friendship. Our room was luxurious and the breakfasts were wonderful.

Linda was very helpful with local knowledge and the restaurants that she recommended were all excellent.

An extra much appreciated gesture was Linda offering the use of her laundry when we enquired about the locality of a laundromat.

We would definitely recommend the Serenata Guesthouse Retreat and would love to return.

This is the best B&B we have stayed at, ever! Luxury at a fair price, wonderful food, and welcoming and personable hosts. We took advantage of the culinary wine and dine experience and thoroughly enjoyed it, so if you have a few extra dollars in your pocket, we highly recommend trying it. The next time we're in the area we'll definitely stay again.
