Observatory B&B

The Newton Observatory B&B

At the 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 we eagerly await making new ones! We are a seasonal B&B, opening on May 1 and closing out our season on September 27. Do check out our list of enjoyable and educational activities as well as our amenities. Add those to a tasty breakfast and world-class observing, and you’ll see why we have become a destination for lots of folks. We have absolutely THE best view of any B&B in the South Okanagan.

Because weather can be unpredictable, we recommend that you stay for at least two nights; in fact, because we’re not getting any younger and do all our own cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc., we always give preference to requests for stays of longer than one night. The chance of getting a good night improve when you stay a little longer and we’ll get to know you better.

Come take a look. We’d love to meet you!

Our B&B season runs from May 1st through September 27th.  Kindly send in a reservation request from the registration page. Many thanks!
