Last week we did a road trip from Calgary, Alberta to British Columbia! On our way back to Calgary (from Vancouver), we stopped over at this lovely B&B on the Shuswap Lake for the night in Sorrento.
A lady named Grace and her husband who were both in their sixties ran the B&B. It was obvious that running a B&B was something the hosts were very passionate about. From the moment we arrived, they went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable in their home.
They told us the history of the large house and that they had been running it as a bed & breakfast for the last three years. It had 7 en-suite bedrooms for guests. The grounds were filled with plants and colourful flowers. The communal areas included an upstairs patio/balcony, an atrium, a lounge, a large games room etc.
We arrived at the quaint B&B around 1pm and Grace promptly showed us to our room. She explained how each room had a different theme, our room was called the ‘Sailor Room’!
We told Grace we wanted to visit some of the wineries nearby and asked where we could go for a casual supper. She suggested a few wineries and a simple lakefront eatery serving mostly Canadian seafood.
We did a wine tasting at two different family-run wineries and enjoyed the stunning views of the vineyards with a backdrop of mountains.
Later, we had a delicious meal at the suggested restaurant. I went for tempura king prawns as an appetiser and fresh battered fish as a main.
The following morning was spent indulging in blueberry pancakes, crispy bacon and hot coffee on the upstairs patio whilst admiring the views of the Shuswap Lake.
