View of the lake

For us, this was a perfect respite from long hours of driving. We booked online from the car and were tired and hungry when we arrived. Every aspect of our overnight stay was wonderful. Welcomed with a glass of local wine, check-in gave us our first panoramic view of the lake and mountains and helped lift our travel fatigue immediately. Our room was spacious, clean, open, and very private, while providing the same stunning view of the lake as did the alcove jet tub for two; the bed was unbelievably comfy; recommendations for dinner led to a most memorable meal in Kelowna; and the breakfast Steve prepared for us next morning sent us on our way with a smile on our faces. Can only praise the care, attention, and understanding of travelers' needs these hosts offer. A wonderful pampering experience - thank you!

My husband and I had the opportunity to stay with Steve and Chrissy while attending a B&B conference in Kelowna. Because we ourselves run B&B, we are very particular. However, we were more than impressed with the luxury of the bed, the amazing rain shower, the heated tiles in the bathroom, the soaker tub, the view, and the guest areas. Because of our itinerary we were unable to try Steve's breakfast or take in a cooking demonstration but we did get a tour of what can only be described as a dream kitchen. With the winning personalities of our hosts and the amazing establishment they run, I will be recommending "A View of the Lake" to all my friends, relatives, and B&B guests.

What else can one ask for . . . a beautiful and clean B&B, wonderful hosts and scrumptious breakfasts. Our two night stay was so relaxing and comfortable. Steve and Chrissy offer their home, their hospitality, and advice on where to go and what to see in the area. We really enjoyed our stay and will go back :)

The nicest room and most comfortable bed we had on a two week drive through Glacier Park (Montana), the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks and the Okanagan Valley in BC. Nice hosts, great breakfast. Nothing at all to complain about.

The view is magnificent. Our room (The Valley View) was really spacious and well decorated with a super comfortable king bed. The bathroom was well appointed with heated floor. There is a living room for guests and a wonderful deck overlooking the lake. The breakfast was superb, absolutely delicious - I didn't really want to talk - just wanted to savour each mouthful. We didn't need lunch after that. Chrissy and Steve are terrific hosts and their attention to detail make their B&B an absolute pleasure to stay at. My only regret was that it was to chilly to have breakfast on the deck the morning we were there. We will definitely stay there again and join in for a demonstration in his kitchen.

My partner and I haved stayed here several times in the past few years and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else when we come to the Okanagan. Steve and Chrissie are the perfect hosts, the 3 course breakfasts are amazing, and their B&B is warm and inviting. We have stayed in B&B's before and for those people (like me) who feel a little squeamish about staying in someone's home - THIS IS NOT LIKE THAT. They have created a perfect home for a B&B, where you have all the privacy you desire, at the same time feeling like you are at home rather than an impersonal hotel room. The home is immaculate, beautifully appointed and Steve and Chrissie feel like family. If all B&B's were like this one we'd never stay in a hotel again. Can't wait to go back, (they are truly that good)!!

My husband and I traveled with our dear friends and neighbors to the Kelowna area and spent a week at A View of the Lake B&B. We found Steve and Chrissy to be excellent hosts.
The rooms were spacious, comfortable, clean, and beautifully decorated. Our room, the Grand View, had a wall of windows that looked out over the lake with a jacuzzi tub. The ensuite bathroom was huge with separate his and hers sinks and a custom shower with multiple jets. The common space was very large with a large comfy leather sectional that was perfect for crawling up and reading a book on. The expansive deck on the common space level had a covered area which allowed for us to eat our breakfast outside every morning.
Which brings me to the breakfasts.....each morning we were greeted to coffee/tea/and 2 types of juice to start. The breakfasts consisted of 3 courses beautifully prepared by Steve. Over the course of 7 days, Steve never repeated a single course. Each morning we were dazzled by yet another gastronomic delight.
We also found the other guests that we met while at the B&B to all be very delightful. It was a great experience for us.
Our only disappointment was that we were not able to get a larger group of people together so that we could see Steve in action in his 550 sq ft kitchen. If you have a group of 8 or more people, Steve will prepare a demonstration meal with wine paring. We will be back to ensure we capitalize on this experience.
No question, the next time we are in the Kelowna area we will be back!
