We recently came back from spending a magical 3 nights at the wonderful B&B 'Apples and Quails' in Summerland, British Columbia. We found the accommodation through Tripadvisor and even though it looked perfect, we couldn't believe it would be as nice as on the website - but we were wrong, it was better! Our hosts Elaine and Chris were wonderful, always available but never intruding. Our breakfasts were fabulous, Elaines cooking is amazing - in fact we began to enjoy our breakfasts more than the food at the surrounding areas. The accommodation is spotless, and very private - you never have to dine with others while you are there as the house was built specifically for a B&B.
It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary while we were there and late on the evening of our Anniversary we went for a dip in the hot tub with a beautiful view and a bottle of sparkling wine with chocolate dipped strawberries which I had arranged through Elaine as part of the stay.
All in all a wonderful memory.
