Lovely place to spend a few nights. Quiet and private. Hosts Jon and Susan are friendly and joined us at breakfast to chat . Susan's creations for breakfast are incredible, delicious, fresh (her own chickens provide the eggs) and plentiful. The gardens are so pretty with Susan's award winning roses. We enjoyed visiting her animals on the property, too. We would stay again and recommend it to anyone. 5 Stars!

This was a great B&B. Great location, good food and Susan and Jon were the best hosts. The farm setting was very relaxing. Beautiful yard to relax in. We did go at the end of the summer so was nice and quiet.

Jon & Susan are the perfect hosts! We were well fed and entertained throughout the duration of our stay.. Definitely a great place to stay in the Shuswap area : P

We had a wonderful family time here, all 34 of us : ) … We so enjoyed the privacy as a family, and your hospitality! (Note: Grandma & Grandpa enjoyed the B & B suite, while the other 32 had a great Mara Camping & RV experience.)

We came up from North Van for a couple of nights and have been blown away since the minute we arrived. The cottage is very nicely done and comfortable…and the grounds are spectacular… a magical place…The icing on the cake is their hospitality – thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful!
