I recently treated myself to several days stay at the Cherry Tree Bed and Breakfast in stunning Kelowna, B.C. And what a treat it was! From the ample, tastefully decorated private suite to the myriad of things to do in the nearby area, my stay exceeded my every expectation.
Sumptuous breakfasts were prepared and served by the charming hosts, Margo and Christian. The ingredients were fresh and of the highest quality…, simply delectable! Since the weather was absolutely gorgeous, I chose to eat in the delightfully decorated backyard, under the cherry tree and among the oodles of gorgeous blooming flowers. Every time I entered or left the unit through the garden, it brought a smile to my face. Very cheery!
The suite was impeccably clean, the bed super comfy and the décor made me feel as if I was in a darling cottage in the south of France. Books and movies were provided for quiet moments. All the special touches were present. Unlimited WiFi was included in the price. This made it super easy to get area information in addition to that provided by the engaging hosts.
There were so many things to see and do in the Okanagan Valley, many available within walking distance in Kelowna. Not to miss is the trendy downtown area, the marina offering numerous water activities (including paddle boats) and the endless parks and beaches, all a short walk away. Bring your bike! Very easy to ride for miles and stop along the lake as you please. And then there’s the ubiquitous wineries, each unique. If you have a vehicle, you must visit Mission Hills. The gorgeous views, buildings, art and grounds are awesome. For lunch, I would suggest Gray Monk Winery; great wine, excellent food. But most importantly, ask Christian for directions to Carmelis, where you will find purveyors of the finest goats’ milk gelato you have ever tasted…no kidding! Who would have thought? I guarantee, you will go back again, and again! MMMmmmm…..DIVINE!
I highly recommend a stay at the Cherry Tree Bed and Breakfast. I know you will find it as I did; superb in every respect! Hats off to Margo and Christian for operating such a top notch establishment!
Excellent central but quiet location. Comfortable well-appointed accommodation - spacious private suite and use of attractive patio garden. Outstanding fresh, imaginative and varied breakfasts. Friendly and helpful owners.
Really enjoyed our stay - couldn't have asked for more!
The rooms were elegant and spotless, and the hosts, Margo and Christian were delightful. We were fortunate enough to have good weather, so we enjoyed Margo's gourmet breakfasts al fresco under the cherry tree. All in all, a great stay and great value.
Excellent excellent excellent. It's extremely small and tends to only accommodate just one family so you get a great deal of one on one attention. The rooms are extremely clean and stay very cool during the hot summer days. The hosts are extremely friendly. Breakfast is excellent and under the beautiful cherry tree in the very well kept backyard. It's close to everything in Kelowna with only a 15 minute walk to City Park.
Oh, and it's also so cheap! Highly recommend to anyone.
After reviewing several Bed and Breakfasts in Kelowna I selected the Cherry Tree as it looked quiant and inviting. Even though it wasn't on the lake it had the advantage of beinig centrally located in Kelowna. It had a charming look to it and the fact that it wasn't just a room in a house was appealing. The basement suite, tastefully decorated with flavours of the south of France was a welcoming and comfortable escape at the end of the day. Margo and Christian were delightful hosts who greeted us with warm hospitality and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. We were served breakfast on colourful china in either the back yard under the cherry tree or their kitchen (the weather wasn't ideal during most of our stay). We very muched enjoyed starting our day with lively conversations and continental style breakfasts which we indicated upon arrival were our preference. I even asked Margo for her muffin recipe as they were so delicious. We wouldn't hesitate to return to the Cherry Tree next time we are in the area. We left feeling like we had made some new friends.
