We stayed in the Apples & Spice room over the August long weekend this year. We typically stay in Naramata when we come to this area; however, we couldn't find anywhere good to stay there so decided to try this B&B and boy were we glad we did! The owners were super friendly and helpful but not in your face. They give you 3 choices for what you want for your breakfast main as well as a number of other options you can have as well (e.g. toast, sausages, granola, fruit salad, yoghurt) as well as a yummy juice blend and tons of coffee or tea. On our last day, Walter made adorable quails carved from apples for everyone who'd ordered the crepes (there were about 5 people who had so he was carving up a storm before everyone came for breakfast!) They let us use their fridge for the random wine & cheese we had picked up along the way and even gave us a nice cherry desert one night. They always left chocolates by the bedside, which was a nice treat. The rooms are charming and clean and the owners were happy to make restaurant recommendations as well as to book reservations for us. They gave us each a treat for the road as well, which was really thoughtful. We saw a ton of quails while we were there and of course there is an apple tree, so the name is fitting. The yard is pretty and there are great views off the deck. We didn't use the hot tub as it was boiling hot in Summerland while we were there, but it looked nice. They gave us the deck to ourselves for our 5th anniversary breakfast and even had a flower at our table, so it was a lovely touch. Thanks for a great stay! We definitely recommend Apples & Quails!
