Summerland cottage description

Located in a 2 acre vineyard, our cottage is peacefully quiet yet provides easy access to all that the Okanagan has to offer. Our farm is located on 'Bottleneck Drive' Wine Route. It is a short drive, bike ride or walk to downtown restaurants, shopping, the weekly farmer's market and other amenities of Summerland. The Golf course is just around the corner. Some of the best beaches on Okanagan Lake are 10 minutes away. The Trans-Canada Trail is a short hike up through our neighbor's orchard. The spectacular 1913 steam locomotive of the historic Kettle Valley Steam Railway runs along the rim of our valley twice daily all summer long.

Our cottage is comfortable, private, and peaceful, located below our vineyard of Gewurztraminer wine grapes. It has one bedroom with a luxurious queen bed, a fully furnished basic kitchenette including refrigerator, toaster-oven and microwave, comfortable living area, deck and 2 patio areas and a Weber BBQ Grill. The valley views and sunsets from the cottage are magnificent. We are always eager to show off our vineyard and to explain what it takes to grow wine grapes in the Okanagan.

Enjoy locally produced wines (there are 14 wineries including our next-door neighbor Saxon Winery) in the shade of one of our elm trees or in a comfy arm chair in the sun and relax.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: We grow grapes and other fruits and vegetables on our ten acre organic farm. We live in close proximity to things we love to do: X-C skiing, running, cycling and visiting our grandchildren. We are Wildlife Land Stewards having dedicated two acres of riparian habitat on our property to the enhancement of wildlife habitat and biodiversity, the only such property in Summerland.

                      Why the Owner Chose Summerland:
                      Summerland is a gem of a small town in the Okanagan. Our farm is in the historic Prairie Valley area of Summerland; a valley of orchards and vineyards located beneath the remnants of volcanic Giant's Head mountain. The Trans Canada Trail passes just above our farm as it weaves its way through Summerland. This walking/cycling corridor provides many recreational opportunities with spectacular scenery and photo opportunities and is 5 minutes from our guest house. Paralleling the Trail, throughout the summer, the Kettle Valley Steam Railway offers visitors a trip through time on the only preserved section of the Kettle Valley Railway which runs through Summerland. The sight and the sounds of the 1912 steam train, together with beautiful valley views transports visitors to a bygone era. Summerland was incorporated in 1906 and has an interesting history which can be investigated at the Summerland Museum. With the arrival of the Kettle Valley Railway, the tree fruit industry built the foundation for a strong farming community. Over time, the wine industry has grown in importance. In addition, Summerland has developed into a community where the arts thrive. The Summerland Art Gallery features changing exhibitions and local artists. All of this character, beauty, and history, and the convenience of it all, is what drew us to Summerland, and our farm. You will love it too!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Lie in our vineyard and watch the birds circle in the thermals overhead. Hike up to the Trans Canada Trail only 5 minutes away. Enjoy a short walk to downtown Summerland - one of the gems of the Okanagan. Bike down to Peach Orchard Beach for a refreshing dip in Okanagan Lake. Walk over to our neighbor Saxon Winery for a chilled bottle to relax with on the cottage patio. Our private vacation guest house is located right in the middle of your Okanagan vacation, close to everything, no stress!
