Our Adobe styled guest house with 2 suites is pet friendly on approval. Because of our love for this part of the Okanagan Valley we chose to build our separate Guest House.

Bighorn Ridge delights again

This was my second stay at the guest house, accompanied by my golden retriever, for a few days of R&R and wine-shopping. The hosts are warm and friendly, never intrusive but always helpful. They welcome my dog, provide lists of off-leash trails and even pet-friendly wineries. The small apartment is cozy and has a wonderful view of Vaseux Lake and the cliffs north of Oliver - savored every day with a glass of wine from the porch swing. The shared kitchen is well-equipped, meals can be taken under the awning on the lovely deck. Quiet. Beautiful. Luxurious. Revitalizing. Could become an annual pilgrimage!

Wonderful place with wonderful hosts

We looked for a pet-friendly place where to stay for the long weekend with our dog. I found the Bighorn Ridge Guesthouse on the internet and send an e-mail. Less than 2 minutes later, Carla (one of the owners) called me to give me detailed information about the place.
Once we got there, we were not disappointed at all. The surroundings are beautiful and although there are three wineries nearby, we didn't get the noise and crowd that comes with the wineries.
Our dog had space to run around and explore. The two golden retrievers that live here are so friendly!
The rooms are absolutely clean and Carla welcomed us with a bottle of wine and a treat for our dog. We didn't need to use the A/C, it was cool inside which is appreciated when it's hot outside.
Big washroom with towels and toiletries. Nice bed with extra blankets if needed. Very nice flat screen TV with cable. There is a small electric fireplace.
The kitchen is shared with an electric stove, fridge, lots of plates/glasses/mugs and a big BBQ outside!.
This place goes the extra mile when it comes to the dogs. There are towels and poop bags. You get a map with the various trails around the guesthouse to walk with your dog. Water bowls outside and inside the room. I am sure my dog had an awesome time just as we did.
