“Don't stay anywhere else--seriously, stop looking!””
Reviewed 15 August 2014

We stayed at A View of the Lake for 4 nights with our two daughters (18 and 21) while visiting family and attending a wedding. We stayed in the largest room with the amazing view and our girls had the room with a garden view with twin beds. The beds and linens are very comfortable, bathrooms huge and well stocked with all kinds of interesting supplies, the breakfasts a 12/10 (they are fabulous, interesting and DELICIOUS) and the coffee excellent. The view from the deck is spectacular making breakfast or just relaxing out there in the evening a thoroughly wonderful experience. Even on a hot day, it was just a bit breezy and cool up there. Everything is beautifully clean and sparkling.

The location was perfect for us--no matter where we were going. We were just a short distance away on foot from a wonderful hiking trail (closed later due to very dry conditions-check before heading out) and a short drive away from others. Peachland is a short drive away where our daughters enjoyed an afternoon of ziplining (Zip Zone Peachland) and we enjoyed a walk along the lake.

Steve and Chrissy are kind, welcoming and charming hosts. We would definitely stay here again when in Kelowna!

We stayed here for one night on our honeymoon in July and it is the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Chrissy and Steve were so welcoming and Steve's cooking is amazing!! He made us such a scrumptious 3 course breakfast. They were also a great source of knowledge on where to go and which vineyards to visit for dinner.
The room was lovely - huge and very clean. The bed was so comfortable and the views amazing. We only wish we could have stayed longer, as we didn't want to leave. We will definately be back!

We started off our first trip to B.C. with a visit to A View of the Lake in Kelowna. Steve and Chrissy have a lovely home set high on a hill with a beautiful view of Lake Okanagan and Kelowna. The house was beautiful: clean; tastefully decorated; with thoughtful attention to all details needed ... a great selection of toiletries in the bathroom. The garden was immaculate and well groomed, creating an oasis of calm and beauty. The breakfasts were the best we experienced during our ten day stay in B.C. What really stood out for us though was the kind and welcoming hospitality of both Chrissy and Steve ...what a superb couple, working together in a labour of love, to create a warm and welcoming community for travellers visiting Kelowna. Cheers!

A view of the lake was my first B&B experience and I must say that Chrissy and Steve are doing an amazing job. They are perfect hosts, with great sense of taste and warm personalities. The house is beautiful, well maintained and has an amazing view.
The three course meal made by Steve and served by Chrissy, has a very classic and fresh touch. Me and my friend waited every morning for the scrumptious breakfast. My recommendation is to at least stay here for a night and experience great people, great place and amazing food!

Had an excellent and memorable stay. The view of the city was awesome from the B&B. Steve and Chrissy were great hosts and treated us like family. The 3 course breakfast every morning was exceptional and I waited every morning to be surprised with new and creative recipes. Everyone who is visiting Kelowna should stay here and have the perfect experience of food, view and hospitality.

It was a wonderful night and had an amazing breakfast in A View of the Lake in west Kelowna. The hosts were very sweet and nice, no worries if you had a late check in and late check out like us, but be sure notify them first. Steve introduced us the area to have dinner, to walk around, and even where to park the car free:) Chrissy bought the fresh fruits and gave us a tastes of the local apple juice that I could never forget. I felt so sorry that our trip from Beijing, China, was in such a hurry, and hope to stick around for more couple of days next time. The beautiful night views of the downtown and the river from the Lakeview room and stunning sunrise could not fail our long trip in this B&B!

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at AVOTL. We are happy we were able to accommodate your late arrival with ease.
**We ask our guests to let us know if there are going to arrive outside our designated check in time 4:00 to 6:30pm, so we can make sure someone is here to greet them, as occasionally we have other commitments.
We look forward to seeing you again when you are in the Okanagan Valley.

The house was decorated in morden and elegant style with a large living room shared by guests. We found the books about Canada landscape and Rockies in the bookshelf in living room. From big terrace, we had a wonderful view of lake and garden. Every morning we enjoyed the three courses breakfast prepared by Steve and served by his wife. The presentation of the food is as excellent as that in 3-star restaurant.
