Where to stay in Osoyoos

Privately run hotels, beach resorts, inns, and motels make up the majority of accommodations available in Osoyoos. The most desirable of these sit between the town's two lakes, offering panoramic views and easy access to beaches on either shore. If you want to immerse yourself in the scenery away from the town itself, head northwest up Route 97 Highway--there you'll find a selection of bed and breakfasts, perched on the hill overlooking Osoyoos Lake.
