Our stay was very relaxing and pleasant.

Beautiful rooms and a breakfast you will not soon forget. Fantastic.

Thanks Chrissy & Steve. We already recommended your B/B to several of our friends

This Bed and Breakfast was everything we anticipated and more. The owners have decades of experience in the hospitality industry and it shows. Breakfasts -- gourmet -- were awesome in presentation and preparation ... certainly one/the highlight of the day ... every day we were there. The owners were knowledgeable of the area ... not a single unexpected/unpleasant experience anywhere they sent us. Quite the contrary, everywhere they sent us was extraordinary and special. Our trip was delightful ... thanks to their attention and advice. The location is on the 'west side' of Kelowna ... on the other side of the lake ... which results in an indescribably beautful vista ... still minutes from 'downtown' Kelowna.

We recently stayed at the View of the lake, Steve and Chrissy couldn't have been more helpful, I am coeliacs and Steve made sure my breakfasts were as tasty as eveyone elses.
The food was fantastic!
We stayed in Grand view, the room was spotless , the bed very comfortable and the shower amazing, and the view: wow!
If you are thinking of a visit, try to stay more than one night, we stayed for three nights and it was one of the most relaxing stays of our trip. We felt as if we were saying goodbye to friends as we left., the sevice is 5*

As soon as we were welcomed by Steve with a glass of local Canadian wine we knew we were onto something special!

A View of the Lake is very grand in appearance and Steve and Chrissy really are some of the best in the business. Using their own experience in travelling the globe they have thought of absolutely everything in creating an absolute haven. The rooms are modern without being impersonal and they have the softest carpets I have ever walked on! The communal areas are simply stunning and offer exceptional views of Kelowna. You are close to the local wineries and Steve is more than happy to suggest wine routes and being a chef knows all the good restaurants in the area. His breakfasts were incredible and the demonstration kitchen really is a very unique experience. We stayed here over Easter and met some really lovely guests from all over the world so conversation at the breakfast table in the morning was very lively. When it's all over you feel sorry to leave and like you're saying goodbye to old friends. You cannot come to Canada and not stay here!

From the moment we walked into A VIEW OF THE LAKE we were awe struck. There was a cooking demo in progress, so we unloaded our luggage and had a nice quiet evening with a glass of wine and the patio to ourselves... the rest of our stay was the same... a lot of privacy, quiet, peace and a beautiful view to match. The breakfasts by Steve are 3 course delights, and Chrissy's service is impeccable. As well, most importantly for us, is how amazingly clean the whole place was... and I mean CLEAN.
We enjoyed our stay very much and will be sure to stay there again in the future.

I hesitate to say all the good stuff as you may take my room when i want to return. My wife and I both loved our stay. The breakfast is 3 courses and to die for. The food is prepared by a professional award winning chef (who happens to be the owner). The demonstration dinner is a must for anyone who appreciates fine dining. The room was clean and there was plenty of space reserved for the guests. The patio is a great place to relax and enjoy the view. Sorry for the limited writing skills but i can tell you this is a must stay if you are in Kelowna.
