Observatory Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 17 Osoyoos B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 July 2008

We stayed with another couple in the Saturn Suite at this B&B. Though the suite does sleep 2-4 people, as advertised, it does not do this comfortably with 4 adults. The nice-sized bedroom holds a comfortable king bed and has an adjoining bathroom. The couple sleeping in the living room get an old, uncomfortable sofa bed and have to go into the other couple's bedroom to get to the bathroom. When the sofa bed is opened, there is hardly any space left in the room. The suite would likely work OK for a couple with two children, but I do not recommend it for three or four adults.

That said, the suite would be lovely for just two adults. The sitting area with no sofa bed opened is comfortable and has an equipped kitchenette with a refrigerator and microwave. The view out the glass sliding doors is awesome. The B&B sits high on a hill, overlooking the town and lake; and the air-conditioned suite has a patio so guests can sit outside and enjoy the vista while sitting in the sun. All three rooms at the B&B open to this view and are at ground level. Parking is available.

At 10 p.m., guests are invited to the observatory at the top of the house to observe the night sky through a telescope. Jack Newton, who owns the B&B with his wife, Alice, is extremely knowledgeable about astronomy and spent more than an hour discussing the planets and stars. Each guest had many opportunities to look through the telescope. After breakfast the next morning, Jack invited guests upstairs again to observe the morning sky.

Breakfast is served at a long table upstairs in a dining room with an even more spectacular view. Our breakfast featured French toast with a small vial of maple syrup delivered to each guest. We were all warned to be careful and not to spill the syrup (it would stain the table). The vials were collected immediately after use to ensure no accidents happened. This detracted slightly from the carefree breakfasts we have come to expect when staying at B&Bs.

My rating would have been higher for the Observatory B&B if our suite had been more suitable for the number in our party.
