About the Property

Drink in the views at Sormovila Guest Suite!

For a unique, romantic getaway in wine country, choose Sormovila Guest Suite on the Naramata Bench.

Sormovila is a beautifully designed guest suite (with it's own entrance) attached to our home,… yet it was specifically created to be a separate and private, elegant and romantic space for couples visiting wine country to enjoy this country experience. It's a far cry from hotel room.

Our property is set perched on a gentle hill among vineyards and orchards back dropped by spectacular views of Okanagan Lake, Munson Mountain’s magnificent white clay cliffs, the Giant’s Head and surrounding mountains. It lies just on the cusp of Naramata & Penticton in the heart of the Naramata Bench and a plethora of wineries.

Our property cycles through seasonal plants, flowers and grasses and is visited by many birds that feed, nest and have chicks here. It’s well maintained and managed with special attention given to the environment both outside and inside the residence and suite. Being environmentally conscious is of great value to us. It’s the least we can do to give back. We are very fortunate to have found this lovely piece of property and feel equally appreciative that we were able to create a special space to share with visiting guests who have similar values.

To enjoy this little slice of heaven, please contact us by email to book Sormovila Guest Suite for your holiday.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Welcome to this little slice of heaven! Pauline & Mark have opened up their home and created a special place for others to enjoy this beautiful place in wine country. Sormovila is a private and elegant guest suite on the lake side of their home that offers their guests a lovely, romantic, and well appointed private vacation space to enjoy. Mark & Pauline are nature lovers who moved from North Vancouver to the Okanagan in late 2011. Mark enjoys hiking, mountain biking and is a former triathlete having done the Ironman both in Penticton and New Zealand. Since having moved here he’s developed quite the green thumb and a fabulous garden, as well! While Pauline has done an adventure race and some challenging riding in her day she now much prefers cross country mountain biking & hiking and is thrilled to have her own art studio on site, PJC studio. She draws, paints, works in multi-media and does a bit of sculpting as well. Please email to book your Sormovila Guest Suite accommodations.
