We spent a single night at Rover's Rest and found it to be quite clean and comfortable. It is a situated on a large treed lot, conveniently close to the Trans-Canada highway, but still quite private. The family has converted the entire main floor of a large log house into a very efficient and luxurious B&B operation complete with a dedicated kitchen, dining room, and lounge/common area. Our hosts were very helpful and accommodating. The hot-tub-under-the-stars was great too.
- 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
