A View of the Lake
Ranked #1 of 26 West Kelowna B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 19, 2013

My partner and I had the pleasure of staying with Steve and Chrissy during our last leg of our journey through BC.
Great location, far enough out of Kelowna to achieve some tranquility, but close enough to make a trip in for dinner.
Lake view room was spacious and finished with quality decor. Bed was super-comfy! Shared lounge area and adjoining balcony were huge.
Was looking forward to breakfast after discovering that Steve was a chef, and they didn't disappoint - it was impressive to say the least. The first time we've experienced a 3 course meal to start the day and WOW! This is only our second stay at a B&B but boy, have Steve and Chrissy set our future expectations high!

I had the pleasure of staying at A View of the Lake in August of 2013.
As I arrived, Steve welcomed me to their beautiful home, complimented with a gorgeous courtyard, plenty of parking and a picturesque landscape.
Upon entering the home, the decor and ambiance were outstanding, maticulous and well presented with lovely artwork and furnishings.
My gardenview room had plenty of windows, a large bathroom, walk in closet, a very comfortable bed and complimentary wifi.
Breakfast was served on the large patio which boasted a perfect view of the lake.
Warm hospitality made all of the guests feel welcome and comfortable, and while the guests enjoyed some conversation, breakfast was served.
A delicious 3 course breakfast, complimented with juice and coffee was served by Chrissy, who provided updates of activities to enjoy during our stay in Kelowna.
Breakfast was absolutely delicious, fresh local fruit, blueberry almond pancakes and eggs benedict to tempt our palates. Steve is a gourmet chef, his presentation and selection of the menu were exceptional, and delighted everyone at the table.
I would recommend A View of the Lake to anyone looking for accommodations in Kelowna, Steve & Chrissy have a beautiful B & B, coupled with their warm sense of humour, attention to detail and exquisite culinary skills, you will be very impressed.

Room Tip: The location of the home is very quiet and peaceful, a good nights rest is inevitable.

It was my first Experience in a B&B and what an amazing one!!! Everything was perfect, the location, the room, the amazing breakfast on the patio facing the lake and the very friendly hosts. We Will certainly return sooner than later!!

Only stayed one night. Garden View Suite. Nice Clean Room, Great Service. They even provided me with information on orchards around the area that we could do U-Pick. Breakfast was delicious (Nothing less than the best from Steve the gourmet chef) as was the amazing view. No issues here.

My wife and I recently had a 10 day trip to Banff and Lake Louise from Seattle and stopped at Steve and Chrissy's wonderful B&B on the first night and the last night. We couldn't have asked for a nicer, more relaxing way to start and end our trip! The home is at the top of a hill outside of downtown Kelowna, with views of the town and well beyond from their covered patio. Fantastic!

Our room was the biggest of the 5, and it was outfitted with a bathroom big enough for the entire family, including a shower with 6 heads....amazing!

On both mornings, we were served a 3 course, gourmet breakfast that got us on our way well fed and happy, with local, organic ingredients used throughout. Steve is a master chef (really!), and he outdoes himself each time he enters the amazing, demonstration kitchen on the main floor. If you're a local, and he ever does a cooking class, you MUST go.

Best of all, Steve and Chrissy are two of the nicest, most naturally hospitable hosts you will ever find when you leave home. In two days, we felt like members of the family.

We have already spread the word about a View of The Lake to everyone we met on our trip and all our friends and family back home. If you are looking for an unforgettable experience in Kelowna, DON'T go ANYWHERE ELSE. Call Steve and Chrissy and book a room at their wonderful home. You won't regret it, and you won't forget it.

This lovely B&B was one of the highlights of the vacation I took with my sister. Picturesque views of the lake from a large patio. There is plenty of room for all guests to congregate in the same area yet not feel crowded. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. Steve and Chrissy were fantastic hosts and the breakfasts were so delicious. I would recommend A View of the Lake to anyone wanting to enjoy a stay in complete comfort.

Thanks so much, Steve and Chrissy, for your hospitality over the August 2013 long weekend. My husband and I were very impressed with your B&B. You are great hosts, offer a wonderful home-like atmosphere.... our room was most comfortable and the breakfast menus were truly a delight! We hope to grace your doors the next time we are in the Kelowna area. Cheers!!
