Summerland cottage description

Sumptuous luxury awaits in this beautifully decorated suite located in its own cottage right in our vineyard.

Private deck and hot tub and the huge picture window in the suite offer stunning views of our vineyard, the rolling hills of the Okanagan and the valley below.

Nestled on a sunny hillside, we offer an excellent, centrally located retreat from which to explore the many attractions of the exciting Okanagan Valley.

This deluxe self-contained suite is beautifully decorated and thoughtfully appointed with everything you need to make this vacation memorable. Step out of your Cottage to relax and take in the magnificent views from your own private hot tub and deck, located right in the vineyard. Lovely patio furniture and potted gardens for your enjoyment.

The suite contains a fully equipped kitchenette, bbq with gas burner right outside your door, cozy living and dining areas and a large four piece marble-tiled bathroom complete with claw-footed bathtub and separate shower.

Breathtaking views from the comfy, king-sized bed and total privacy in this sun-drenched hide-away. 42' Sony TV with large selection of DVDs, (no TV reception) excellent library and games in suite for your use. Also Sony am/fm & cd player with iPhone docking station to listen to your own tunes.

Generous hospitality combined with full amenities ensure a unique holiday experience. Take a complimentary vineyard tour with host George - the process of grape growing and wine making is fascinating and George gives an entertaining and informative tour through our vineyard. Complimentary wine tasting of George's excellent variety of wines.

Hike for hours on the trails just out our back door. We are happy to take you to the trailhead. Hikes are easy and offer wildlife sightings and beautiful, wild landscapes. The trails are not 'manicured' and you need sturdy hiking boots and a good sense of direction. We are happy to take you to the trailhead and point you in the right direction. Great trail bike riding as well up to scenic Garnet Lake and beyond. Bike for a long as you like.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2002

                      About the owner: Your hosts, Ms. Gerri Davis and Mr. George Lerchs moved to the Okanagan Valley from Vancouver Island in August of 2002 with dreams of having a vineyard and county home. George is a retired economist and Gerri has spent many years in the hospitality industry and loves to cook. Neither of us had any experience with viticulture. However, ignorance is sometimes bliss. We planted our four acre vineyard outside our back door on the sunny Okanagan hillside. We learn more each year about growing grapes and the art and science of wine making. We love to welcome our guests to our beautiful twenty acre property to enjoy the peace and solitude of this sunny hillside retreat. We strive to offer generous and genuine unreserved hospitality and are more than pleased to share our knowledge of the area's attractions and resources over a glass of our wine, made on site.

                      Why the Owner Chose Summerland:
                      Summerland is centrally located in the heart of Okanagan wine country. Summerland offers small town ambiance while being only minutes away from the larger centres of Penticton and Kelowna. Summerland is home to 'Bottleneck Drive', the area's award winning wineries.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Total privacy and country quiet in beautifully furnished, completely outfitted studio suite. Private hot tub on your own deck overlooking rolling Okanagan hills and our vineyard. Our property and bird baths attract a large and varied song bird population starting in early spring with the Western Bluebirds and continuing into late fall. A great variety of birds nest on our property and make frequent visits to the three bird baths situated around the yard, providing endless hours of bird watching entertainment. Host George offers complimentary vineyard tours and we are happy to share a glass of our wine, made on site. We plant a large garden each year with many tomato varieties, leafy veggies, carrots, squash, beans and melons all interspersed with colourful flowers and tall, nodding sunflowers. We love to garden and are happy to share extra veggies with you, as available. Our egg-laying chickens are housed in the little cedar-clad buildings and fenced chicken yard in front of the house and give us fresh, flavourful eggs each day. Complimentary eggs on arrival, when available.
