Watch for the continuing upgrade to our B&B!
George and I are excited to be getting the house and garden ready for new and returning guests this spring, summer and fall. With the in-house renovation completed in the Dogwood Room, we now turn to the garden and decks to spruce them all up just for you! Today we power-washed the deck, deck glass […]
At last! The reno’s are completed! The rooms are back in order and they look beautiful! George did his usual excellent job in renovating the tub/shower into a lovely walk-in shower. There is no longer a tub in this room. Both the bath and the bedroom have had a new paint job in a warmer, […]
George is hard at it again: this time taking out the old style bathtub/shower combination and putting in a large walk-in shower with rain-head. He is doing the tiling himself this time and going through a learning curve of all the new materials available to “speed up” the job. He watches a lot of You […]
I had the loveliest reflexology appointment, right here in the B&B recently! My yoga teacher, is also a certified reflexologist, and she brings all the goodies, including a zero-gravity chair, to perform her special practice. It was the loveliest experience for me! I felt like a piece of cooked spaghetti after Courtney finished. And […]
My neighbour Debi and I attended the last farmers markets of the season in December; an indoor market with so many beautiful items displayed for our perusal. Just like the Summer Farmers’ Market in Penticton, every Saturday morning, the vendors bring their fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, honey, wines, ciders, plants and every manor of cooked […]
Debi packed a great picnic lunch, George rented the boat (http://summerlandresorthotel.com/the-resort/boat-rentals) and we set off to explore Okanagan Lake on a hot sunny day at the end of June! George is an experienced boat operator but he still took the short course on how everything worked on this particular boat. We gals got to have the […]
Some of you know by now that George is happiest when he is puttering in his shop. This year, despite our travels and the many celebrations for his 70th birthday, he had time to be in his shop, doing what he loves best. I found an old park bench at my favorite local antique/junk store. […]
Its finished! For those guests who requested a headboard so the bed wouldn’t move away from wall when you are watching TV or reading a book, George has made a new headboard for the Maple Room bed. This was a new adventure for George so it entailed many views of YouTube “how to’s” but its […]
Fall is in the air, leaves are turning color, and our final guests have departed. Its winding down time for us at the Blue Iris B&B – until next spring! We thank each and every one of the guests who crossed our door this year. We enjoyed having you all and look forward to next year!
Our new bathroom is now complete and we are receiving rave reviews on how it looks… wish you were here to see for yourself! In the meantime, here is a picture or two for you! You may notice the flower jug is shaped like a fish. It’s actually a fun but awkward drink pitcher that […]
Our Maple Room bathroom renovation is almost complete… there was lots of work to get this done, starting last October! But now its almost complete… take a look at the pictures! George did a marvelous job building the cabinets…
You may ask! We test new recipes; check out local establishments that we feel might be a “good find” for a guests; and RENOVATE!! We are always testing new tasty recipes for breakfast. Last year we took a breakfast cooking course – we learned to make the perfect poached egg! As I am allergic to […]

Hello all who are following! There haven’t been many updates this summer (well, any at all, it has been very busy), and this will be the first and last of 2013. With the snow getting ready to fly and the temperature dropping, Blue Iris Bed and Breakfast is closing down for the summer. Thanks to […]

Although its maybe not possible to handle ALL food allergies in our establishment, we certainly try. Having food allergies myself, I know how difficult it is to find a hotel or B and B that can deliciously accommodate my wheat and dairy restrictions. I have developed a list of tasty baked treats that will please […]
