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.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Although Apple d'or is a B+B, it feels more like a small boutique hotel contained within a 7500 square foot log house overlooking Okanagan Lake. It has only three individually and luxuriously decorated king suites, all with cooking facilities and private patios. With its exquisite gardens including hot tub and pool, it is the only Canada Select 5 Star accommodation east of the lower mainland in British Columbia. ... more less
