“Wonderful B & B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

My husband and I were visiting family in Summerland and stayed here for a few days. This B&B was amazing. It is more like a hotel room than a B&B which was perfect. The room has it's own bathroom and you enter the suite from the outside. So when we got in late each night we weren't disturbing anyone. The rooms were big, clean, and had free wifi. Plus the breakfast each morning was huge and absolutely delicious. The owners were helpful and really great people. We really enjoyed staying here and we will definitely be staying here again next time we visit Summerland.

This B&B is a winner, we can see why it is so highly rated. We stayed in the upper level suite for 2 nights, we were warmly welcomed by Ann and she showed us to our room, which was very spacious and clean complete with beach towels, coffee making facilities and a small fridge and I might add a set of lovely wine glasses for us to enjoy our Okanagan wine on our private deck. It is located in a residential area, but the yard is beautifully treed and our view from our deck was great. The bed was very comfortable and it was very quiet and peaceful staying here. The deck was well situated for us to enjoy it, even when the temperatures were very hot outside. Ann gave us some tips and info as to how to walk downtown and a special bakery to go to and other helpful advice about the area. The first morning we enjoyed a fabulous breakfast with another couple in Don and Ann's kitchen. The second morning we enjoyed our breakfast for 2 on their private patio . Don served us and he did a fantastic job and the breakfast was equally wonderful. The food is plentiful and delicious, and our July 1 breakfast included lots of little "Canada Day" details. That was so cool, thank you!!! Also the presentations of the breakfasts was wonderful, we could see that a lot of care and thought had gone into the breakfasts. Both Ann and Don were super friendly and wonderful to visit with, and the reasonable price for what was offered would be hard to beat!!! We definitely recommend this B&B!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and hope to be back someday!!!

Having previously lived in the UK we are used to staying in B&B's but Ann & Dons Dogwood is still one of the most impressive we've seen.

Ann & Don renovated their home 6 yrs ago to turn it into a B&B. We stayed in the lower room. It was very large with a comfortable bed, air conditioning, a small fridge and tea & coffee facilities. There are also beach towels for if you choose to swim in Okanagan Lake.

Ann's breakfast is one of the best that I have had in a very long time. We stayed for 3 nights and received a different amazing breakfast each morning.

Ann also gave us some great ideas for things to do and places to eat around the Okanagan. This was our first visit to the region and Summerland provided a great base for day trips to Kelowna and Penticton.

I highly recommend Dogwood B&B.

My wife and I are B&B owners ourselves and as such we recognize a quality product when it is presented to us. The Dogwood Bed & Breakfast provides such a product. This B&B is decorated in a minimalistic style and yet is very clean and comfortable (particularly the bed). Our bedroom was spacious and the bathroom was equally large.
We found the Dogwood B&B to be walking distance to the downtown of Summerland and the choices for dining (as recommended by Ann) were found to be excellent.
Breakfast was leisurely and delicious with conversation ranging on a number of topics. It was unfortunate that we were only passing through Summerland and only stayed a single night...we look forward to next time! We felt that we received excellent value for our dollar...
Thank you Don / Ann...

Room Tip: Shampoo and conditioner are not provided...ensure that you bring those products with you.

We stayed here for Ironman 2012. We were a 10 min drive from the Start/Finish. Don and Ann were great hosts. They were very helpful in making our stay great. They only have 2 guest rooms, so there is lots of personal attention. There is a private entrance to both rooms. The rooms were very clean and nice. The view from the balcony is fantastic. The breakfast was delicious every morning. Overall, this was a great place to stay in the Okanagan Valley.

We stayed at Dogwood for three nights and it was our very best experience! They have only two suites so you feel you get all the attention. We had our own entrance and balcony which gave us some privacy yet still had access to our hosts. Breakfast was delicious and patio setting was lovely. Don and Ann are great hosts. They suggested we go to The Giant Head park which was one of our highlights of our trip. The view of the valley is amazing! We would love to go back!

The room was clean, quiet, and spacious. The hosts were very friendly and answered all the questions we threw at them. The room had a small fridge, which came in very handy. Ann is a very good cook and Don is a good helper. The views from the lower balcony were limited, but nice. The B&B is in a residential area and within walking distance to downtown Summerland.

Room Tip: Upper room probably has better view of the two rooms.
