Voice of BC's Professional Bed & Breakfast Industry

The Lake Country of British Columbia is comprised of four distinct communities around Okanagan and Wood Lakes: Carr’s Landing, Okanagan Centre, Oyama, and Winfield. The area is blessed with a sunny, semi-arid climate that draws folks from the other side of the Coast Mountains. B&Bkeepers of BC Lake Country Bed and Breakfasts welcome one and all.

People are not new to the Lake Country of BC’s Okanagan Valley. While European pioneers first arrived in the late 1800’s, archeological evidence indicates the existence of First Nations settlements from as far back as seven to eight thousand years. The Lake Country Museum in Okanagan Centre is a terrific source of information about the history of the region.

This part of British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley has long been known for its orchards. Indeed, the Lake Country is often is referred to as the “Apple Capital of Canada”. Nowadays, in addition to tree fruit, the Lake Country is produces outstanding wine. Wine Festivals occur throughout the year, often incorporating local art, music and cuisine. Ask the innkeepers of your Lake Country Bed and Breakfast about their favorite local wineries – and don’t leave without a few bottles to enjoy at home.

For less mysterious activities, visit the four towns of the BC Lake Country. There is a large artwalk each September in Winfield, where you will also find outstanding theatre and dance. Carr’s Landing is a lovely spot to enjoy a drink and take in views of Okanagan Lake and surrounding orchards; Oyama is the place to go for golf. Okanagan Centre is home not only to an excellent museum, but many fine restaurants and shops.
