A View of the Lake
Ranked #1 of 26 West Kelowna B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We stayed three nights at this perfectly situated (a view of the lake!!), decorated, and hosted B&B. With only four rooms, it is like intimate stay with friends and family. The breakfasts are a wonderful leisure start to the day fill with fresh local offerings of juice, fruit, and breads (most baked fresh in the morning). Eggs and meats top off the third course.

Steve was loaded with great ideas of what to do in this gem of a town and we really loved the suggestion of a visit to the "Suspension Bridges". This attraction will soon become the #1 in Kelowna. It features 4 bridges over gorges with great views of the valley and lake - not officially open until next spring. The developers hope to have skiing on artificial (foam based!) snow, a restaurant and a wonderful gift shop (fully stock to browse, but not to buy).

We were fortunate to spend one our three nights with three couples traveling together who requested a "demonstration" dinner cooked in the wonderful kitchen built expressly for this purpose. Steve is chef with an amazing pedigree, and he performs (chops while talking with no lost fingers!) in front a minimum of 8 guests seated around the enormous granite c-shaped counter). The show was great; the meal better!

Room Tip: Although we did not see any of the other rooms, the grand suite is worth the extra cost!

Steve and Chrissie made us really welcome ensuring that we appreciated that we were able to use all of the property during our stay which includes a large lounge, deck and bar area. They provided advice for our one day in Kelowna and recommended places for evening meals. Steve is an excellent chef so breakfasts are a real treat taken outside on the deck. Our room was decadent with an enormous bathroom as well as a whirlpool bath in the bedroom!

Very pleasant experience. Rooms large, bright and clean, bathroom sparkling. Hosts welcoming and froendly but not in your face. Great suggestions of what to do during our short stay including a very nice park with lots of bird life in the centre of town.

Room Tip: Our room was called a view of the lake which was great, our friends were in a back room but still ha...

A two night stay at this lovely, spacious B&B in West Kelowna on the Sept long weekend was the perfect start to our Okanagan adventure! Steve and Chrissie were the ultimate hosts, providing a wealth of local knowledge and recommendations, in addition to the spacious and well appointed bedrooms and common areas. Breakfasts were superb and served on the terrace overlooking the lake. Fantastic and highly recommended.

We stayed at A View of the Lake for just one night, but we wish we could have stayed for longer, it is a fabulous place. Our room was light, spacious, and everything was finished to a high specification. We were in the Lake View Suite which as its name suggests boasts a fantastic view. The open plan sitting area was perfect to enjoy a glass of wine and look out at the view, and the decking area outside was huge. Steve and Chrissy were excellent hosts, and breakfast was superb - enjoyed out on the decking chatting to other guests, we could have stayed there all day! If you are deliberating over where to book in the Kelowna area - this place is such a great find, look no further...

Immediately following our first dinner at 'A View of the Lake' with Steve and Chrissy, I decided that we would be back - it was that good. It has been a year but we made it back for another 'demonstration dinner' , which was equally as entertaining and delicious, and this time we stayed over-night. The dinner, with wine pairings, was awesome and fun, again, and my family enjoyed themselves almost as much as my wife & I. We stayed in the 'Lakeview Room' which is spacious with a huge bathroom & shower-room and, like its name suggests, has a great view. Our hosts and the other guests kept us entertained, on their gorgeous sun-deck with a spectacular view, until ..............late. In the morning the breakfast is another gourmet affair that Steve creates, Chrissy serves on the 'Deck', and is surprisingly sufficient for a big appetite. Overall this is a great experience and a great place to stay when you are in the area. Thanks.

Steve and Chrissie run an excellent B&B. We chose the Grand View room, where the views are indeed impressive. The room is beautifully decorated and furnished, the bed is large and very comfortable and the bathroom with its large walk in shower is luxurious. There's also a jacuzzi bath in the bedroom with views out to the lake. Breakfast is served on a large terrace with equally spectacular views of Kelowna and the lake. Our breakfast on both days was excellent. You won't be disappointed if you stay here.

Room Tip: There are lovely views from the Grand View Room and the room and bathroom are very spacious
