I am a little late in writing this as we stayed at The del Ray B&B for one night in late August but I definitely didn’t want to let my review of this outstanding B&B slip through the cracks! Where do I begin? This was our first stay at a B&B and we couldn’t have had a better experience. Bob and Phyl are the sweetest most welcoming hosts and did everything possible to make us feel completely relaxed and at home (although you feel like you are staying in a beautiful orchard estate, not someone’s home). Their property is absolutely breathtaking and our beautiful room (the Acacia) was spotless, spacious, quiet, private and had a fabulous view of the lake with a lovely outdoor patio. The house itself is just beautiful and the grounds are lush and surrounded by an apple orchard. There was some chocolate and a bottle of wine chilling for our arrival which was such a nice touch. Bob also showed us where to find the homemade cookies and biscotti, fresh Okanagan fruit, chocolate covered coffee beans, water, soft drinks etc. which was great to enjoy after a long day of driving. There was a binder available with all of the local restaurant menus and we perused through that while we enjoyed some wine on the patio before dinner. The bed was very comfortable and we woke up wishing we were staying at least another night or two. Fortunately, our time at The del Ray wasn’t quite over yet and we enjoyed Phyl’s AH-MAZING peach waffles out under the gazebo where Bob brought us a variety of homemade juices to try, delicious! They also sent us off with a sweet thank you note and an amazing basket full of fresh fruit and water for our drive to Creston. I couldn’t tell you what our favorite part of this B&B was – everything was just exceptional!!! Thanks again to Bob & Phyl for making our first B&B experience a memorable one!
