“Wonderful Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2011

We have had a number of wonderful stays at the Grand Lakefront Bed and Breakfast over the last few years. The view of the lake and park from our room is spectacular. The room is clean and very quiet and has a very comfortable bed. Virginia is a great hostess and has lots of great tips for restaurants and places to shop. We usually walk to the downtown area along the lakefront parkway. Breakfast in the morning is outstanding with home-made waffles and Eggs Benedict. We highly recommend the Grand Lakefront B&B.

The Grand Lakefront B&B was an excellent place to stay. It is up overlooking the water and mountains. Views from our room's private deck were fantastic, a great place to share a glass of the local wine on a warm afternoon. Virginia was an excellent hostess, with lots of good ideas on walking and resturants. Our room was comfortable with room to sit, play cards, and wireless access as well. Breakfast was served in the round turret area of the old house - it is decorated beautifully with great gardens to explore. A real gem of a place.

My husband and I stayed at The Grand for three nights in August 2011...what a wonderful, spacious, comfortable, lovely place it was! Ours was the Dijon room--we had our own entrance, a large deck overlooking the lake, all the comforts of home and amazing hosts! The house and gardens are beyond lovely...I could have spent many an hour just walking around admiring the sights. The Grand is convenient to shopping, gas stations, downtown attractions and the residential areas of Nelson. Breakfasts are amazing and served in a beautiful sunroom by a consummate host--Virginia is a wealth of information about Vernon and a delightful woman who makes her guests feel special and welcome. We will stay with she and Duncan the next time we are through Vernon, only THIS time, it will be for a week!

If you want to get a sense of how Canadians view their 'heritage homes' then a stay here is a must. We stayed for 4 nights in the Master and Dijon rooms. Both have a shared private entrance and balconies with absolutely fantastic views. A fridge is provided on the balcony which was very useful for sitting out with a nice cold drink at the end of a busy day. The hosts were away and the house was being looked after by their niece who was very friendly and made us some lovely breakfasts. That being said, coming from the UK we found the furnishings to be over fussy and bit of a dust trap! Obviously the owner is an inveterate collector of 'stuff' - the dining room was a constant delight to us every morning as there was always something new to discover. We particularly liked the new and old portraits of the Queen and the dead orchid on the spare table! This is a very quirky house and I wish we had been able to meet the owner as I'm sure the house will reflect her personality. The only negative we had was the rather dangerous light fitting attached to the bedhead in the Dijon Room - we ended up unplugging it.

Room Tip: The Dijon and Master Rooms have fabulous views and balconies - great for 2 couples travelling togeth...
