WOW !!! The Blue Iris is a beautiful property with an outstanding view. George & Cheryle were warm, wonderful hosts with great knowledge of the area. Every morning we enjoyed a fantastic breakfast and felt like family. The room was spacious and comfortable with a beautiful ensuite. We will 100% return again and again.
I can't say enough about how wonderful you were as host and hostess. Didn't seem to get tired of us after 10 days!!! That in itself is something!!!!! You were like family. And the scenery, and the comfortable bed!! You two have a gift for receiving people into your home. We keep telling everyone about you. And George, besides being an excellent cook you are funny !! Best to you both.
Cheryle and George have created a stunning home away from home for guests, and the house is immaculate. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at home - it really is like being welcomed into their home to stay with them - not as merely someone staying separately from them. We were welcomed with a glass of wine and - because we arrived a little late our delicious appetizers were postponed until the evening after - with another lovely glass of local wine. Both times Cheryle and George sat with us and discussed the local area, politics, travel and life in general! George made a delicious breakfast every day, which was taken on the veranda with them and other guests. Fresh juices made in house and a choice of tea and coffee including their own blend of chamomile. The location is excellent with a stunning view across the lake. The veranda is a sunny spot with comfortable chairs to sit and read or while away the time with some local wine. Near to a couple of vineyards, and within easy reach of others in Summerland and the wider Okanagan region. Extremely comfortable bedroom with a large bathroom, with everything thought of down to spare toiletries. A very relaxing place which we'd love to return to.
Our hosts at the Blue Iris B&B - Cheryle and George - were fantastic - so friendly and helpful. We enjoyed conversations over breakfast and their knowledge of the area was very helpful in making decisions for winery visits and other points of interest.
Their home is beautiful with amazing lake views, and lush surroundings with visits by local wildlife. Our accommodation was spacious including the ensuite spa-like bathroom. The lake and mountain views were fully visible from the comfy king-size bed. Their breakfasts were healthy, inventive and delicious!
The best part of all is that we feel like we have made new friends of Cheryle and George and will make sure we book with them next time we travel to the south Okanagan. "

It's been a while since I've stayed in a b&b where the hosts take the time to chat with guests. Cheryle and George are very hospitable hosts. Their home is immaculate and well decorated with a beautiful garden full of flowers. The breakfast was delicious. Highly recommend and would stay at Blue Iris again 🙂
Host Cheryle made our stay most enjoyable. Her warm hospitality, kindness, and little extras ( a welcome glass of wine) and wonderful breakfasts gives this B&B a warm and personable touch. In our view, this sets its value way above any hotel. Our experience was perfect and it felt like we were at home. It was fun having those evening chats and telling stories while on the deck overlooking the lake - a fond memory that will always be cherished. Looking forward to our return visit soon, thank you again. ♥ (Sept. 26-29, 2018)
I stayed at Cheryle and George's bed and breakfast for three nights. Their home is immaculate, very nicely decorated, and inviting. Cheryle gave me a tour of their grounds which was lovely. They have a variety of flowers and trees. My dietary restrictions were well accommodated at breakfast. I thought the wine and cheese upon arrival was a nice touch. I enjoyed my conversations with Cheryle and George. They are super hosts who will go the extra mile for their guests. In fact, I enjoyed my stay so much that I have booked myself another couple of nights!
Stunning views; supremely comfortable accommodation (in the Maple Room); and delightful hosts and breakfast companions! Cheryle and George – thank you for welcoming us into your beautiful home and making our stay in the Okanagan so memorable: we couldn’t have chosen a nicer place to spend that part of our return trip to BC and Alaska, after a fifteen year absence.

My husband and I have returned to the Blue Iris multiple times and have enjoyed every stay. The accommodations are more than comfortable but are over shadowed by the view from the deck and the hospitality of Cheryle and George. The breakfasts are over the top and the conversations lively. Everything about this place makes it the best of the Okanagan.

Five Plus Stars for Sure
Our first visit to the Blue Iris. A truly exceptional experience --- including the magnificent view, the perfectly appointed house (inside and out), the delicious and healthy breakfasts, the beautiful garden, the tranquility, the warm hospitality of Cheryle and George (many laughs together), and the location (near to many wonderful Okanagan sites). Overall, we were made to feel as if we were visiting long-time friends in an outstanding setting.
Only regret is that we were unable to stay longer --- and we will fix that item on our next visit!
