The Observatory B&B

The Newton Observatory B&B

At the Newton Observatory B&B, our motto is We Promise the Sun, Moon & Stars, and, we DELIVER! Each season sees us welcoming back guests as friends, and eagerly awaiting making new ones! 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.

OUR 2023 SEASON will open on Monday, May 1 and our final guests of the season will depart on Sunday, October 1.


Weather permitting, we will offer morning and evening observing sessions in the roof-top observatory on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. To provide Jack with a break, we will not have sessions on check-in or check-out days (Mondays & Thursdays).

Before or after breakfast on your own, dress warmly, and come upstairs any time between 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 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.
