We had always wanted to visit the Okanagan Valley and I really did not know where in the valley to stay. Everyone said we should look at Kelowna but I just couldn't find a place to stay that I liked. Eventually found this treasure in Penticton. The place is beautifully laid out with its own vineyard and lots of break...

E'Laysa is exquisite. The house is comfortable yet stylish. Peaceful tranquil setting on the Naramata bench in BC wine country. Our hosts were wonderful. Breakfast was perfect and we even got a piano performance by the owner that was amazing. Several exceptional wineries very close by. Definitely will do this one again!

We had a fabulous 2 day stay with Silke and Neil for our annual wine-tasting weekend. We had not been back to Naramata for several years as we hadn't been thrilled with the accommodation options in the area - mediocre hotels and B & B's at best. But after this stay at E'Laysa (which opened in May 2016), Naramata wineries...

The owners did themselves proud decorating this B & B with an Tuscany Theme, when you look out the window at the tall junipers and cedars, the vineyards and orchards, you are taken back to hillsides of the Chianti area in Italy. The beds are super comfortable with luxurious linens, the ensuite is fantastic including a large whirlpool tub, double...

We stayed Oct. 11-13 and very much enjoyed the experience. The guesthouse grounds are beautiful in a peaceful location. The rooms are very nice with extremely comfortable beds. The breakfasts were yummy. This is a perfect location for touring local wineries. For us, this is the place to stay when visiting Penticton.

This was our first trip to the Okanagan and it was enhanced by our stay at this B & B. Neil and Silke were welcoming, relaxed and helpful in every way. The accommodation was lovely and the beautifully presented breakfasts were delicious and included local ingredients from artisans from the area. Their spacious and private acreage provided opportunities to explore,...

This was our first trip to the Okanagan. We traveled with 3 other couples and stayed 2 nights in the main house. Our accommodations were excellent. The rooms were very comfortable and well appointed. Breakfasts were first class. Hosts Neil and Silke made us feel at home.
