“Phenomenal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2012

My husband and I spent a few days here after our wedding. It was the perfect place to unwind, enjoy a luxurious experience but still be near great wineries and many delicious restaurants. The service and breakfasts were outstanding. The pool is secluded and has a great view. The sauna is comfortable and clean. The rooms are spacious and beautiful. All-in-all a wonderful experience.

My husband and I have travelling to Naramata since moving to B.C. 5 years ago.
We are in love with the area and now are in love with Apple D'Or.
Everything about this Property is exceptional.
The landscaping ,the breakfast, the pool area, the tranquillity and the awesome hosts along with the beautiful design and decor make this a first class Resort!
We have already booked for next year for 2 weekends.
Thank you for such a great vacation getaway!

We stayed at Apple d'Or the week before the Penticton Gran Fondo. What a find! This is a beautiful guest house. Gorgeous rooms, tasteful decorating, marvellous details, comfortable beds, privacy and a beautiful patio. Every room is a gem. Holly and Colin and their staff made us feel right a home but, unlike B&B's (which I really don't like) it was not as if we were in their home. Instead, we had rooms nicely demised from Holly and Colin's space so at no time did we feel like we were intruding on someone else's living space. We did some terrific bike rides from the property, visited some wineries, hung out on the patio and enjoyed a couple of BBQ's dinners that we were pleased to prepare ourselves. And by the way, breakfasts were fantastic served on a deck overlooking the lake and the vineyards below. Do not miss this place. We will be back again as soon as we can make the trip.

My wife and I decided to head to BC wine country for a minimoon right after our wedding. (We are heading to Europe in September) After staying the first night across the lake we found the Apple d'or on Tripadvisor. What a find!! This made our trip. The host's were amazing the property was stunning and the breakfast was out of this world.

I would stay here again in a heart beat this place will not disappoint. It is a little pricy but it is high end so you get every dollar in value that you pay for. It is such a big house (7,200 square feet) you feel like you have it to your self. We used the sauna (With cold water dump when you get out..Awesome!!) We drank wine until 2:00am sitting in the hot tub it felt like we had the entire valley to ourselves. The linens and bedding were of extremely high quality and the breakfast's...WOW! One morning we had fresh squeezed OJ, home made coffee, Fresh Bagels, with smoked salmon, capers and cream cheese. I would go back just for this!!!

Apple D'or has to be one of the best kept secrets this side of the Rockies. It being time for a getaway, my husband and I both agreed that returning to this luxurious hide-out (in time for the spring wine festival) was exactly what we both wanted. We stayed in Ambrosia - the smallest of the suites. Spacious, beautifully decorated, comfy bed, separate patio. There's really nothing like it anywhere around. And totally private. Even though the other two suites were full and there was opportunity for some friendly hellos and a warm chat with the owners, Colin and Holly --- we heard nothing. Not a sound other than the birds chirping. This really is a marvelous place.

On the recommendation of friends we travelled to the Naramata wine country for a long weekend at Apple d'or. We were not disappointed! This beautiful log home is more like a luxury small hotel rather than the standard B&B. Attention to detail is apparent everywhere. The hosts, Holly and Colin are gracious, the rooms were private, luxurious, spacious, and well appointed. We enjoyed our stay there immensely, and had the best sleep in a very comfortable bed. Breakfasts were delivered on time and were top notch. A private patio and wonderful grounds with superb views and a pool rounded out our experience, and we can hardly wait to go back. Apple d'or is by far the best experience we have ever had at a B&B.

Room Tip: Any room is a good room!

After looking around for a place to take my boyfriend for this 35th birthday in the Okanagan, I stumbled across Apple D'Or. A glowing recommendation from a mutual friend confirmed we had to stay here. This amazing property did not disappoint.

After a picturesque drive through Naramata wine country we arrived at our destination - A beautiful log mansion overlooking the Naramata vineyards and Okanagan Lake. We were warmly welcomed by host Colin, and he showed us to our suite and around the grounds. The common areas of the log home are tastefully decorated with art and Naramata area event posters. We stayed in the Ambrosia room; which is beautifully decorated and comes equipped with a small kitchenette and private bathroom. The bed was large and comfortable and the bathroom was well appointed with good quality full size shampoo and conditioner, lotions, and soaps.

The best part of the entire property is outside the French doors from your room…. A pathway through the well kept gardens leads you to a private and secluded pool overlooking the Okanagan Lake. We could have spent our entire trip by this pool, the view was breathtaking and the Okanagan weather was at its best! There is also a hot tub and sauna available on the property.

We had a beautiful patio outside our suite where we enjoyed a delicious breakfast every morning that was made exactly to our specifications and delivered to our suite at the requested time.

We had a small mix up about the rates, but I was credited immediately without question.

In the past I have stayed at quite a few B & B’s, and I find them a bit uncomfortable with very little privacy. Apple D’Or is not a standard B & B, you get to eat your breakfast in the privacy of your own room or outdoor patio, you have a private bathroom, the rooms are huge and you barely see your hosts.

I cannot recommend Apple D’Or enough, it is quite simply the most beautiful, romantic, tranquil place I’ve ever had the pleasure of staying at. We will be back every year, religiously.

Room Tip: I would imagine all rooms are beautiful, pick whichever one is in your price range and available.
