PRIVATE, SELF-CONTAINED LUXURY COTTAGE WITH YOUR OWN PRIVATE HOT TUB IN VINEYARD

Summerland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage studio suite, fully equipped, sleeps two in privacy & luxury.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I just spend 3 nights in The Get Away Suite - and it was really, really nice! Cozy rooms, very friendly hosts - and beautiful nature surrounding the place. It was very quiet and peaceful. Just what we were looking for.We can highly recommend Grape Escape!

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.

Gerri Davis purchased this cottage in 2002

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.

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.

SOLITUDE, LUXURY AND WINE!

  • 5 of 5
What a great find! If you are seeking a getaway which includes peace and quiet while sipping some Okanagan wine in a private hot tub overlooking a vineyard while watching sunset in the hills then you have to stay here. Gerri and George truly have a bit of paradise here and are generous hosts for welcoming others to experience a quieter Okanagan. Highlights of our stay included Gerri's fresh baking, birdwatching, luxurious suite with all amenities, private hot tub and spectacular hiking right from the cottage. Our trip concluded with a vineyard and local history tour with George and a generous sampling of their wine made on site. A magical 4 days in Summerland - we are sure to be back and I can't wait!

YOUR OWN PIECE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed with Gerri and George for years now and it's our place to stay when we're in the Okanagan for our annual winery visits.
The central location is perfect for visiting wineries up and down the lake.
The cottage is exactly as the photos describe and even more so. You'll find everything you need to have the best vacation ever.
Gerri and George are very knowledgeable about local wineries, sights to see and restaurants to go to.
If you want to truly get away from it all - stay there!

SUPERB LOCATION AND AMENITIES.

  • 5 of 5
Just home from a week at the Grape Escape and loved every moment. The cottage is beautifully appointed with quality furnishings and everything needed to make your stay relaxing and comfortable. The bed is sumptuous, with crisp linens, an ultra comfortable king mattress and a cozy comforter. The view is stunning, privacy unrivalled and the patio beckoning. Our hosts were charming, attentive while still respecting our privacy. Thanks Gerri & George, we'll be back!

Just had a wonderful 4 day stay at the Grape Escape, wish we would have been able to stay longer. You will not find a more welcoming home away from home. Each day was greated with a basket of muffins at the door. Each night was ended in a dip in the private hot tub. You will find everying you need and more in this cozy cottage. Thank you very much to Gerri and George for letting us borrow this litte piece of Heaven for a few days!!

SWEET RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
Just spent a week at the Grape Escape. We had a wonderful time at this lovely cottage. The setting is beautiful and peaceful. Very quiet. The cottage is well equipped and very clean. Gerri and George have a gift for making one feel welcome. They are truly concerned about your comfort and privacy. The muffins and morning treats were flat out yummy. Serious baking skills here! We plan to return and would would highly recommend this property to anyone who enjoys a fine slice of life.
