Masons Kitchen & Bar



About Us


The Masons 0wner Couple, Peter and Tina Ernst (also Chefs) have extensive restaurant and management experience. Their shared vision for Masons Kitchen and Bar is Creating Great Dining Experiences - Something for Everyone!

The culinary journey all started with Tina working with her Opa in the “Bierbar” (Neighbourhood pub) in Northern Germany. By the time Tina was 28 she was crazy busy in the restaurant business in Germany and Peter was busy working in grocery store operations and teaching.

The restaurant was so busy, Tina called for help, Peter switched careers and answered the call! In 1997, after much success, they were ready for a change. Well, why not change countries?

Canada was the ideal choice! Peter and Tina moved with their children Jenny and Leif to Sun Peaks where they have been busy building successful restaurant operations. Their operations have included Powder Hounds, Bella Italia and the Cahilty Creek Kitchen & Tap Room in Sun Peaks.

Committed to Community building, they have been instrumental in the creation of Oktoberfest and live music events at Sun Peaks which leads us to the really fun part!!!?

Peter and Tina are ALSO accomplished musicians, songwriters and performers!

Playing the “Rock Roots” genre as a duo or full band, Peter’s performances are energetic, fun and full of emotion. Rumour has it there just may be some great live music events happening at Masons. Stay tuned !
