Kimberly was a great host! She made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived. The rooms are all quaint and comfortable. They have definitely thought of everything! The property is beautiful and we even saw some wildlife during the visit. Breakfast was delicious and the company was lovely.

I arrived in Sorrento without a reservation and was lucky enough to find room in this great B&B. Kimberley was very welcoming and extremely well organized. Everything is very clean and she has many extras - beach towels, a fridge for guests, water bottles, etc. - to help make your stay as easy and enjoyable as possible. Very close to... More

Beautiful place, gracious hostess who has thought of everything! No detail has gone missed. Guests have mentioned it's dated but we did not view it as dated at all. It's clean and cozy! Warm and inviting. I would highly recommend this place.

Rover's Rest was absolutely cute, cozy, comfortable, and the hosts, Kimberley and David, are beyond amazing. Starting with the tour of the property, we said our first "she thought of everything!", and we would repeat that phrase probably 10 times over the next day. It's a perfect romantic getaway spot to relax for the weekend. They've got a nice spot... More

A well hidden gem slightly off the main road but easy to find. We loved the atmosphere of a true home away from home with all the amenities plus some we didn’t expect.

We recently stayed at A Rover's Rest in the To The Point Suite, after discovering the B&B on the web. The property is absolutely stunning and Kimberley and David, our hosts, couldn't have been any more helpful. We will definitely be repeat customers, the next time we are in the area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We would love to have you stay in our 4,350 sq. ft. romantic log home bed and breakfast situated on two acres of secluded alpine paradise. Come relax on the large deck or wander around the grounds; either way, you will be astounded by the spectacular views. Blind Bay looks out over Shuswap Lake. Shuswap Lake is one of the largest lakes in British Columbia’s Okanagan. Shuswap Lake has over 1,000 km of shoreline. We often see deer on the property, as well as the many birds and squirrels. A Rover's Rest Bed and Breakfast is located in the heart of British Columbia's Okanagan interior resort play land. We are located in Blind Bay, near Sorrento and Salmon Arm cities and it is halfway between Vancouver, BC and Calgary, Alberta. You can find us just 1.8 km (a tad more than a mile) off the Trans Canada Highway on Balmoral Road. A large circular driveway allows us to accommodate your vehicle and boat or snowmobile trailer easily— no unhooking if you like. Our handcrafted, romantic log home bed and breakfast has many features: our museum of antiques, 2 guest fireplaces, a jetted, heart-shaped tub, wrought-iron beds in all guest rooms, beverage center which includes a wide selection of Stash Tea, quiet areas, an ever-expanding book and video library, a large deck with a gorgeous view, and outdoor benches and tables. The eight person hot tub spa is located at the back of our home in a quiet area with a great view of the lake. ... more   less
