“How flexible are you ?”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

When we are writing this, there are three other reviews which are overwhelmingly positive. It sounds a bit too positive for us and we don't know if these were written by real people (not affiliated to the owners or otherwise). We can say for full disclosure that we are completely independent from them and writing about our experience in Summer 2011. It has been a while before we are writing this down. Other things kept us busy. But we thought, that it needs to be noted what has happened.
We cannot rate this B&B properly for one simple reason. When we arrived at the time we arranged in our pre-booking, our suites were not free because the previous guests decided they would like to stay longer. This is probably fine and an indication that it is not too bad there.
We asked to have our rooms and she would need to make arrangements for her other guests as it is not up to us to run the B&B but the owner said that she expected we would be more flexible.
No. This is very bad business practice and if you are doing a road trip with overseas guests you expect that the rooms are free on the days you have booked.

We didn't like as well that the pool was actually about to be closed at 8 PM in the evening (in a hot summer !!!!) and all suites had thick carpets where you had to take off your shoes as soon as you enter the house. It might be OK when visiting family, but not when you are traveling and need to be afraid to leave one mark somewhere ...

As a result the owner arranged an other B&B to stay. It was again more of an other family visit, strangely with almost no people in that house ... and guess what .... thick carpets again ..., but it was nicely located at the lake. When the saw owner of the house the next morning she prepared a great breakfast with fresh fruits. She was from Germany as well, but didn't want to speak German with us.

Anyway, we had agreed to a reduced price. Therefore, overall I can't say if we can recommend the place, but wanted to have this noted as a word of caution. Also, the owner should adhere to best practices in business.

We stayed at this great little B&B last October when we were in town for the record breaking 2010 sockeye salmon run on the nearby Adams River.

The B&B is run by Ulrike and her husband Bernd. Coming to Chase was a last minute decision and Ulrike's helpfulness was immediately obvious from our initial telephone conversation where she promised to take us the 15km to the Adams River herself if we couldn't find an alternative! Luckily the local tourist office arranged transport for us. Ulrike picked us up and dropped us off at the Greyhound stop and made us feel welcome throughout our stay.

We couldn't really find fault with the B&B. The location is lovely, backing onto the town's golf course on a quiet cul-de-sac near the lake. There is a swimming pool and a hot tub for those visiting in summer. One of the big plus points was the common room where you could bring back takeaway meals and make tea/coffee etc. There is a pool table and a TV which kept us entertained in the evenings.

A delicious buffet breakfast was served each morning in the common room which set us up perfectly for the long, active days in the great outdoors.

Overall a very comfortable stay with peace and quiet at a reasonable price. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Little Shuswap.
