Our golf group has stayed here three times and has thoroughly enjoyed each visit . From our engaging hosts, Chrissy and Steve, to the beautiful rooms and the delicious breakfasts. Staying here is the highlight of the trip. We always have a demonstration dinnner which as usual was fantastic. Great food and great entertainment from Chef Steve and Chrissy.

This is by far the best B&B we have ever stayed in. The rooms are spacious, bright, clean and beautifully decorated - far better than anything you'll get in a hotel. Steve's three course breakfasts are out of this world, and both he and Chrissy are fantastic hosts. They went out of their way to make all of their guests feel totally at home.

This was our third year staying at a View of the Lake, and it was like going to visit old friends. We'll be back next year!

Kelowna is a beautiful city and accommodations at "A View of the Lake" are amazing.
Every room is incredibly clean and comfortable. Not only is this a great place to stay but also a fabulous place to eat. The owner and chef Steve is a spectacular cook! The breakfasts that are served every morning and are included in the price of your stay are some of the best we have ever had.
We highly recommend this place if you are in the Kelowna area.

Beautiful house, excellent chef, very nice rooms, and good hosts. Not too far from downtown or wineries. Highly recommended.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our three nights at A View of the Lake B&B in Kelowna, BC. Steve and Chrissy were amazing hosts and have a beautiful home. Steve is a fabulous chef and serves incredible three-course breakfasts each morning. We had such a nice time enjoying the beautiful views of Lake Okanagan and staying in the Grand View room. The accomodations were top notch and we can't begin to say enough nice things about our visit. Thanks to Steve and Chrissy for all that you did to make our stay with you so special. I highly recommend this B&B to everyone.

We had the chance to meet up with some friends who were staying at this lovely B&B. They invited us to join them for the demonstration cooking and dinner. We were not sure if we wanted to go at first, as we had some other plans. We are beyond glad that we made the choice to attend this amazing event. The view from the deck and the kitchen were breath taking. The canapes before dinner were excellent, and the dinner itself was the best meal we have eaten out, ever. Each course was delicious, and fresh! Steve gets the ingredients that day, so there is nothing but goodness in these treats! The friendly, fun atmosphere in the kitchen made it feel like we were not in a stranger's kitchen, but that of a good friend. Steve was very entertaining, as well as his fun-loving wife, Chrissy. He answered any and all of our culinary questions with honest information. The evening went by and we were sorry to see the meal and visiting come to an end. If you are in the area and are looking for a different dinner experience, get some friends together and book this!!

We stayed 3 nights with 2 other couples. Steve and Chrissy make you feel welcome, comfortable, and have every need taken care of. We highly recommend the chefs dinner if you can gather enough participants. The food, rooms, and above all, the hosts are worth many trips back to this wonderful place.
