About the owner: My husband (Ed) and I moved to Summerland in 2000 to undertake a new semi-retirement career in viticulture. We purchased a 10 acre fruit orchard and through a labor of love completed the conversion to a vineyard installing new irrigation and planting 6,000 plus Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir vines. We work the vineyard ourselves and take great pride in producing the highest quality grapes. We are more than happy to share our vineyard experience to those visitors that have an interest. Our new cottage, completed the summer 2010, was designed in a contemporary and elegant style while taking advantage of the outstanding lake and valley views. Our vineyard setting is so special; we enjoy sharing it with others.
Why the Owner Chose Summerland: We are in the heart of the Okanagan Valley Wine region. We bought the property because of the spectacular lake and valley views and climate wise being ideally suited to growing pinot varietals. We also feel in love with the unique character of the property bordering historical Zimmerman's gulch and various plateaus. We are also located conveniently to Kelowna (45 minute drive) and Penticton (10 minutes away). It is the ideal location to explore the best of the many Okanagan Valley attractions.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: While the cottage is secluded and private, it is in an ideal location just a few minutes away from Highway 97. It is only 2 miles to downtown Summerland offering cafes and fine dining restaurants. It is walking distance to 3 wineries and a short drive to 7 other local wineries. We are also in the perfect location to explore the over 250 winieries to the north and south of us. Other nearby attractions includes golf, beaches, hiking, biking shopping and dining.
