At the Newton Observatory B&B, our motto is We Promise the Sun, Moon & Stars, and, we DELIVER!
For twenty-three seasons,we have welcomed back guests as friends, and eagerly awaited making new ones! We have consistently ranked among the top 10% of B&Bs in British Columbia. All good things must come to an end, however, and after all those years offering B&B, we have set plans afoot to retire and close our B&B effective September 30, 2023.
Sincere thanks to those guests who have made our experiences so memorable. If you haven't already visited us, we still have dates remaining for the balance of this season. Do check out our site, and you'll see why we have become a destination for thousands of (sun) and stargazers. Day or night, we have absolutely THE best out-of-this world views in the Okanagan Valley.
WE REGRET THAT WE CAN NO LONGER PROVIDE BREAKFAST AND ARE UNABLE TO ACCEPT PETS***
Weather permitting, we will offer morning and evening observing sessions in the roof-top observatory most days and evenings.
Before or after breakfast on your own, dress warmly, and come upstairs at 9:00 a.m. for your morning session. The Sun is in a very active cycle and is safe to view through our Hydrogen-Alpha filter. You’ll even see stars in the daytime!
We will tell you what time is the best for your evening session, as it’s dependent upon when darkness falls, etc. That time is always after 9:00 p.m., so if you want to enjoy dinner out, you’ll have lots of time before your evening observing.
If weather does not permit, we may offer an optional astronomy presentation in our upstairs theatre.
