Brookside Inn – Escape to Abbotsford

Boutique Hotel in Abbotsford Offers Welcoming Retreat

Over the holiday season we drove up to Kelowna to visit the Anderton clan and decided a stop in Abbotsford on the way back to Vancouver would be in order. We could catch up with some good friends and take a break from the rather stressful highway driving. We booked into a recommended local bed and breakfast, the Brookside Inn Boutique Hotel. The Inn is not far off the highway, but in a country setting, with particularly festive decor and the biggest Christmas tree we’d seen; at least this year.

Situated in Pepin Brook Vineyard Estates, Brookside Inn is run by Chris and Sandi Buis, a charming couple who were readily available when needed and completely out of site when not. Will a views to the local mountains, this area is known for great hiking and bird-watching. Who knew?

The bedrooms have a movie theme (ours was Midnight in Paris) and they are then styled around that. The suites are spacious with a sitting area and television, a soaker tub and uber comfy beds where a good nights sleep comes easy.

The Buis’ were having an open house and invited us to join in, so we of course obliged and got to know a few of the neighbours.

Craving sushi, we went to Hana Sushi nearby for a couple rolls with our pals Summer and Patrick, who are also recently engaged. Lots to celebrate these days!
