Our second B&B ever and this has made it hard to go back home. Kathleen has such a beautiful place on the lake that it makes you not want to leave. The view from the deck let's you absorb all the beauty that surrounds this clear warm lake. The stars and milky way were the best we have seen in a long time. The bed and room were very comfortable.With excellent access to the water, this is a beautiful place to enjoy kayaking from.
3-bedroom B&B is the best kept secret that I almost hate to share :) 2-hr flight from SFO to Spokane, 3 hr drive to Christina Lake across the Canadian border, where Kathleen's B&B sits roughly midpoint of the lake. My bedroom is south-facing, right off the boat dock. The million-dollar view has a surprise good news, it's WARM water! So is the hospitality! Kathleen the owner makes a wonderful & hearty breakfast, is a native so very knowledgable. The room is super-comfortable and rustic. Swimming in the lake is easy, and I hear nearby you can rent water sports equipment (although I didn't try). Christina Lake has several restaurants and nearby town, Grand Falls has several more. I was here for a wedding, and have to rush back. All the way back to Spokane, I was wondering how I can turnaround and stay at Sunflower for another week! If you want to "shut-off" from the techie tech Bay Area for a while, Kathleen's B&B is my #1 choice :)…
While passing through I had some vehicle trouble and had to stay the night so in my search for accommodation I came across Kathleen and the Sunflower Inn. Kathleen was a wonderful host and included me in with her other guests who were all very friendly, a terrific experience that has me planning Christina Lake at the Sunflower Inn a future destination.
What an amazing place to stay. The views are incredible. The b&b is right on the water, you can sit on the spacious deck looking at the lake, the mountains, and the stars. The bedrooms are also spacious, bright, comfortable, private and very clean. The breakfast was delicious. Kathleen made us feel welcome. She was a superb host.
This place is amazing! So much so that we came back on our way back home to stay again. If you are planning to go through or stay at Christina Lake on your travels this place is a great way to spend the night(s). Amazing views, cozy rooms, comfortable beds, great breakfast & coffee & Kathleen is a great host. If there is anything you want to know in the area she is a wealth of knowledge, from where to eat, where to hike, weather, etc. Our kids (adults) kayaked in the evening & we all enjoyed playing in the water in the morning - the water is so clear & is a really nice temperature. It was not smoky at all both times we were there (Aug 26 & Sep 2), the smoke has all cleared up. We all highly recommend this place & will come back again.
