What’s New Around Our West Kelowna B&B
Little Straw Vineyards
The Slamka family who owned Little Straw Vineyards have been long-time neighbours and friends of ours, have decided to retire, and have sold their winery to Kalala Wines, another West Kelowna Winery. They will be converting the vineyards to organic grapes and the official launch of the new winery is scheduled for spring 2023, where they will be introducing a new premium organic label, Dostana Wines. Dostana means friendship in Hindi language.

The Westside Wine Trail has a new informative website with all the information you will need to plan your visits, tastings and dining experiences to the many wonderful wineries in West Kelowna with many right in our neighbourhood, and, within walking distance.

Celebrating 40 Years!
We will be celebrating 40 years here as a B&B this May – the Bed and Breakfast was started, in 1982 by the Jarman Family who were from Australia. Over the 19 years they raised their family while running a traditional B&B. When they decided to retire in 2000, we were ready to retire from our careers and start a B&B and we were lucky to be able to purchase the B&B and take over in the spring of 2001. Watch our Facebook page for Flashback Fridays this fall where we will share some of the photos of days gone by.
