“Great wines, great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

My wife and I went on a small wine tour in May and decided to stay in the guest house at Burrowing Owl. We read some of the reviews and it seemed like everyone really enjoyed this winery and since I really enjoy the wine it seemed like a good place to stay. I can honestly say I was very impressed with the Burrowing Owl winery. The guest house was beautiful and spacious with great views of the vineyards and mountains off of the patio. The hostess for the wine sampling was very informative and the wines were plentiful (up to 12 tastings for a $5.00 donation to the Owl society). The restaurant was disappointing but it's not part of the winery so maybe that's why. Over all, this was a great place to stay and we'll definitely be back.

I stayed one night at the guest house with my partner. A great room with a great view of the orchards. They thought of every need in the room. Very comfortable. After a walk around the grounds, we had an excellent meal at the restaurant. In the morning there was a terrific breakfast. Here comes the but, though. It was so noisy because the wind turbines were running at night. It sounded like a plane or helicopter overhead the whole night. Very hard to sleep!

We booked the entire guesthouse plus penthouse for our wedding. Our guests were thrilled with the spacious rooms overlooking the vineyards as well as the pool deck. The breakfast each morning was plentiful and very good. The penthouse, which is a good size for a gathering had two bedrooms and bathrooms. The bathrooms lack a large bathtub but the kitchen and living area make up for it. We were treated well by everyone at Burrowing Owl which you would expect having booked the entire place but at the same time it made for a busy weekend.

We will definitely come back for a quieter weekend but our wedding was memorable because of this wonderful location.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.

Spent 2 nights here after Whistler trip having eaten in the restaurant 5 years ago and remembering it. Perfect for a relaxing break, well situated in the Osoyoos/Oliver Wine Country and restaurant really great again. Treated to 8 different wines to taste in the winery and walked around the vineyard one evening. As a solo traveller was made to feel very welcome and will definitely return. Midweek prices very reasonable but perhaps a little high for weekends otherwise would have rated it 5 for everything.
I also ate at Terravita (Hester Creek) about 4 miles away which was equally as good.

Other highly recommended wineries visited on this trip included Mission Hill, Hillside, Blue Mountain, Poplar Grove, Volcanic Hills and Meyer Family Vineyards.

Best wines tasted - Mission Hill Riesling Icewine 2012, Meyer Family Vineyards (MFV) Pinot Noir (all 3 but McLean Creek marginally the best), Blue Mountain Pinot Noir and 8th Generation Pinot Noir. How I wish I could buy these in the UK! In my opinion the MFV and 8th Generation are superior to most Californian and Oregon Pinot's I have tasted and what value!

Room Tip: Great layout - all have balconies or patios.

My friends and I experienced a most enjoyable stay at this lovely resort in the heart of Canada's wine country in the Okanogan Valley. The drive from Van was long, but so very worth the trip. We spent four nights at this resort and from the moment we stepped into the doors, we knew it was going to be good in every aspect. Staff were excellent, most friendly and very helpful. Breakfast buffet was supberb and the fine dining restaurant for dinner, was also excellent. We did tasting at the Burrowing Owl but also visited other wineries during the day and purchased, amongst us, more wine than we dare mention. The staff at Burrowing Owl had no hesitation in offering to pack it up and ship it to our home in NL. A most enjoyable time was experienced by the six of us. Higly recommend it as a great place to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms were spacious, with balconies, clean and very quiet. Each room looked out onto the pool a...

We have stayed here a few times, ussualy off season as the rates are a little steep. The experience is worth the expence. Great meals in the formal dining and the Breakfest Buffet. Ask for a Winery Tour, if they have staff you may experience a cool look at the cellars and the wine making process.
Cheers

We were driving by on our way through from Seattle to Calgary and decided to take a chance and see if they had a room available. We were lucky and they did. I can't imagine a better place to spend our anniversary (by complete luck). The rooms are large and absolutely silent - didn't hear another guest even though we're pretty sure that most, if not all, of the rooms were occupied.

Beautiful location with unbelievable service. And wine.
