“There are B&Bs. Then there is the Turtle Mountain B&B!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

How does one plan to stay in someone unknown's house? A blind booking is intimidating without knowing anything about the permises or its owners. It's usually a high-stress situation and it was with us while planning a stay in Vernon and faced with a choice of several B&B places.
Our apprehenstion was somewhat eased after I spoke with Barbara on the phone. It disappeared completely as soon as we arrived and had the tour of the place. I did not expect anything of the sort that we found, or the price that was asked of us. This B&B is obviously a labour of love and that is reflected in everything within the four walls as well as outside. The care of the plants alone must consume a major part of the day.
Inside, the place was cozy, the coffee maker and the coffee/tea selection most appreciated. The cookies and the fruit... unexpected and also appreciated. The food, specially made to our preferences, was equisite. We were made to feel like invited guests rather than room renters. There is no possible way of us staying elsewhere the next time we visit Vernon.

Thank you Barb and Gil, you made our day. And night.

I grew up in Vernon but left many years ago.. What a treat to stay at Turtle Mountain and revisit my hometown. Barbara and Gil have a beautiful home in a gorgeous setting. They are delightful hosts and make us feel so comfortable. Twice we have brought friends from Australia to stay at Turtle Mountain - they are still raving about the breakfast Barbara prepares! Treat yourself to this very special spot!!

As our write up in the owners "guest comments book" this was a surprise vacation for my wifes birthday and her first time in a B&B. She was not comfortable at all on arrival even with the idea of a B&B! I had stayed at hundreds before in the UK and across Europe and the "Turtle Mountain Inn" surpasses every one of them by "a country mile"!

My wife on the other hand comes from a hospitality industry background and is used to 5* hotels across the world, but, she was so impressed both with the quality of the accomodation and the "personal service" of our hosts Barbara & Gil that the initial suprise was taken over by "awe" that one B&B hidden away in the mountains of Vernon could easily surpass the quality of any 5* hotel anywhere on the planet! We stayed for a week and by our second night she had totally fallen in love with the place and by the time it came to packing up our stuff for the next leg of our trip didn't want to leave and was pestering me as to how soon we could go back again!

True quality, service, value for money and so ideally situated for touring the Okanagan. We will 110% be returning!

The accomodation comprises separate (private) entrance, (no worries coming back late/going out early), extremely spacious living room with TV,DVD,CD including comprehensive CD and DVD collection, wet bar/kitchen area, 2 bedrooms, 1 en suite, 1 bathroom, storage area and a fabulous private patio area. While Barb & Gil could make more money renting the 2 bedrooms separately, they refuse to do so - unless you are travelling as a family or a very close foursome!
This only adds to the appeal, as a couple we had run of the whole suite

Knowing people in the area it was also extremely pleasant that there is never any issues in inviting friends round - a bit of a taboo in other B&B's I have stayed at. The property is non-smoking but as a smoker it is no great issue in walking the 10 seconds to the road to indulge, and Barb did inform me that an ashtray can be provided for use on patio, but as I do at home I would rather go out!

The breakfasts are all fresh daily and are way more than most could finish and of course again Barb is very accomodating as to what time you want it ready and a quick knock at the door you can change anything anytime!

I can only really come up with one HUGE issue with the "Turtle Mountain Inn" and that of course is:- "How are you ever supposed to leave?"

Room Tip: No need to choose a good room you get the whole suite which is all fabulous! :)

This is a beautiful large self contained suite with 2 bedrooms and one bathroom. Barbara only rents the suite to one couple at a time unless they are related or good friends and wish to stay together and share the bathroom. We had the whole place to ourselves and it was marvelous. First of all Barbara and Gil are wonderful hosts and we lacked for nothing. The view is superb both day and night. You are on top of a mountain and see most of Vernon. This is a beautiful town to visit and usually the weather is great. A very large continental breakfast is brought down to you at a suitable time to both and it is most enjoyable with lots of homemade goodies. There is a kitchen with microwave etc.... but we were full and not really able to finish all the fine food. The beds are feather beds absolutely luxurious and all the ameneties are available in the bathroom. It is a full bath with tub and shower. The suite is AC and quiet. I would stay at this wonderful B&B anytime. The house is new and we had our own sitting area outside the sliding doors. Just really wonderful experience.
