We wanted to break up our drive from Nelson to Vancouver and decided to stay at the Suites at Orofino in Cawston. What a wonderful part of the world this turned out to be. Keremeos/Cawston is a wine producing area that has lovely vineyards, tasting rooms and restaurants. The recommendations by the owners at Orofino turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. The suite at Orofino that we stayed in was beautiful and Immaculate. We just cannot say enough good things about it. It was huge and had wonderful views of the vineyards and mountains. We will definitely be back!
I hesitate to give a much deserved rave review on the suites and owners of Orofino Winery only because the masses will want to descend on this incredible place! The accommodations are luxurious with stunning views of the winery and hills. Everything you could ask for is in the suites, plus lovely amenities like fresh coffee beans, a fantastic loaf of bread and jam, flowers, wine and so much more. There's a great deck with a barbecue and it's incredibly quiet. One of the best places I've ever stayed in.
We felt very much at home in the 2 bedroom Suite. The Suite was clean and spacious. Love the quiet, beautiful surroundings of Cawston and everyone are so friendly. We appreciated your recommendation to the Food of the Sun Organic Family Farm (we wished we bought more of their fresh produce). You might just see us again soon!
We were 4 friends celebrating a 50th and indulging our love of Okanagan wine. After a funny episode in Penticton involving forgetting to book a room in advance, we were really ready to enjoy a nice accommodation experience. Well - Orofino did more than that - deftly exceeding all our expectations. 2 beautiful bedrooms so no one felt they got the poor choice, a gorgeous and airy sitting room/kitchen and a perfect patio with panoramic views for sipping our purchases and making yummy dinners. Virginia has great taste in simple, modern decor and perfectly stocked amenities including the lovely bottle of wine, first class coffee left for us, and access to the mountain bikes we used to visit other wineries. We can’t wait to come back!!
We stayed a week in the one bedroom suite to do some wine tasting and relaxing. The suite is even nicer than the pictures and has everything you need including a full kitchen stocked with good quality equipment. The owners were helpful and available if we needed them but respected our privacy. We especially loved the welcome basket of local goodies and the tour of the vineyards. Thank you Virginia and John!
