My husband and I visited Jack and Alice on our honeymoon. The stay was exceptional, we were welcomed from the moment we got to them. You could not meet more caring people. The room was fantastic, incredible views over the valley. Breakfast was yummy. The observatory tour was incredible, we keep telling everyone back home about the experience. Will definitely... More

Great location. Fabulous view. Excellent learning opportunity. Gracious and knowledgeable hosts. Couldn't ask for more. Real world (not above our heads) knowledge in the observatory. Photo session is a must! We'll be back! Thank you, Jack and Alice!

I'd give it 10 stars if I could, a fantastic B&B. Alice and Jack are such wonderful hosts. We had a fabulous two bedroom suite, (emperor and twin) with kitchenette, lounge, and balcony overlooking Osoyoos valley. Breakfast is served as a shared event with Alice and Jack in their exquisite dining room, watching hummingbirds at the window; the house is... More

A great location overlooking Osoyoos plus comfortable, clean accommodation. But most of all a complete pleasure to meet Jack and Alice and to view the night sky and the morning sun in the observatory. Even on a cloudy night we saw stars, Saturn and the moon (...I'm sure I saw a Clanger in a crater), and the following morning glimpsed... More

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic two nights staying here. Jack and Alice are simply wonderful and gracious. The view was spectacular and the stargazing enthralling as Jack guided us through viewing a number of stars, planets and nebulae. The rooms made us feel like we were right at home, with a breathtaking view at sunset. We would certainly... More

We were on a mother and teenage daughter road trip and stayed two nights. Jack and Alice were not only super friendly but knew their stuff! Jack showed us a one of a kind astronomical experience. The Saturn Suite was the perfect for two of us and it was great to have a full-sized fridge and dishes. The location of... More

Alice and Jack provided my wife and me, the experience of a lifetime, showing us galaxies millions of light years away, binary stars, relatively close neighbor planets and our sun. All from the comfort of their beautiful home and B&B. Both of them nice, charming, and funny. They made this a more than worthwhile vacation. Our first B&B had excellent... More

This was a "fantastic voyage" from start to finish. The views of Osoyoos from the b&b were spectacular complete with hummingbirds and baby deer. The views of the skies were amazing both evening and morning. I never thought I would ever get to see the sun like that. Alice and Jack are wonderful hosts offering fascinating knowledge and conversations. Their... More

We recieved the warmest of welcomes from our lovely hosts Jack and Alice. This B&B is like no other I have ever stayed in, the rooms are themed on space and are beautifully thought out and decorated.

Fascinatingly different and very interesting learning and looking at the Universe. Jack and Alice are wonderful hosts and the breakfasts so appetizing. And the view looking down at the lake from our patio was literally breathtaking. Nature at its finest.
