Summerland Lodge Rental Photos and Description

4 Suites To Choose From, Mountain Views, Ski In/out, Nearby Snowshoe Trails

BUCK SUITE :--

Our large & comfy three bedroom & loft vacation town home offers you the perfect place from which to enjoy all the outdoors of Apex Ski Resort. They say if you can ski Apex Mtn. Resort, you can ski ANYWHERE in the world. Double black diamond funs, blue and green runs for beginners, this hill is for everyone. Enjoy the moonlight nights of snowshoeing into the back country, or just relax by one of four fireplaces that this complex offers.

Pristine fir trees, with views of the ski resort, located in the quieter section of Apex Ski Resort for you to frolick all day and relax to a quieter environment at night. Kick up your feet and lounge on our lovely comfortable leather furniture, or just look out the big picturesque windows and watch the snow fly while playing board games at the air hockey table. Very practical kitchen with a beautiful island and loads of drawers to store your groceries. Settle into one of two hot tubs located on site. This vacation can be yours for two and we have sleeping for 30, if you want to bring along your family and friends.

Apex Ski Village is smaller and more suited for a challenging ski destination, and the quaintness of a smaller Village like what you might find in Europe. We have two perfect places to dine with families and play hard at night, if you like. A 5 minute walk to the Village, located on a ski in/ski out run.

Distinctive Setting includes:

Private hot tub and gorgeous views

Ski-in/ski-out

Parking for up to 10 cars, yes we have fit a motor home in our lot 1

Sleeps 12 in 3 bedrooms and loft (3 queens, 6 singles)

19 foot ceilings, large dining area

Amenities

Hot tub

High speed wireless Internet

Large flat screen TV with HD cable and DVD

Full size washer and dryer

Barbeque

Here is what the locals do in the Winter. . .

We wake up to breathtaking snowy mountain peak views. Access just how long it is going to take to eat and get out there for first tracks. We decide the courses. Just a five minute ski to the lifts and take the Strayhorse path home. After a day on the slopes, no one has to talk us into a hot tub to soothe our aching joints (we are getting older and there is always too much snow to shovel). Watching the snow fall with more expressos, and we often slip out for an evening skate on the outdoor skating rink. The braver ones taken in the hockey game at the outside rink. I personally love the Tube Park where you are GUARANTEED to take 10 years off your life, laughing alone, finished with a good book in front of the fireplace, or a hockey game on the television.

What do we do in the Summer ….

With wraparound decks, sip on your expresso or chai latte and soak up the morning sun. There is plenty of fresh air, and trails right out the back of the complex. If you are really quiet you get to take in the owls at night and the birds by day. What is particularly breaktaking is the cobalt blue skys when the sun hits the evergreens. Feels like and looks like heaven.

Explore further and go to the Nickel Plate lakes and take in a fishing day. Travel just a little further and check out the amazing tourist attraction of Hedley Mines and go on a tour. Want the city ?? Just a quick 25 minutes drive down the hill and float the channel in Penticton, take in the hot sun at one of many lakes, and come back home where the air is a little cooler and sleep like a baby !

Golfing – Twin Lakes Golf course is 25 minutes away or take in some high-altitude biking and give your cardio a great workout. Many climb Apex Ski Resort in the summer and have a ride of their lives down.

So come and check us out at Apex Whitetail Chalet -

About Jeannine Cressman

Warren & I moved to Apex Ski Resort 11 years ago to get away from the rat race of the city and raise our children in the great outdoors. Who knew that all the training as a chambermaid who pay off later in life !! We started this business 'on a whim' and 11 years later, we STILL LOVE WHAT WE DO.

What we found were very down to earth people that loved the outdoors here at Apex Ski Resort. We fell in love with serving our clients from families to speciality teams like the Canadian National Olympic Aerial Teams, Canadian Speed Skating National Teams, and more recently, our first weddings, and family reunions !! With sleeping for 42 it gets easier and easier, and I love chatting with the guests before arrival, many of them Warren or I have had the same location in common. We would love to check out Australia yet, maybe when the kids are out of the house, we can take in ski season in our 'off season' !

Jeannine Cressman purchased this lodge in 2002

Why Jeannine Cressman chose Okanagan Valley

We offer personal touch customer service. If you celebrate Christmas, we will ensure that you have a tree and mantle decorated for you and the kids. Maybe you don't, please let us know that as well so we cateer to your needs specifically !! We aim to please everyone.

What makes this lodge unique

Our uniqueness stems from our on hand personal touches of clearing walkways, moving firewood when needed and sometimes helping clients when keys are lost ! We have four very private suites, large appointed bedrooms, wraparound decks, cathedral ceilings, pine & tiled floors, large comfy leather furnishings, and private hot tubs for the Trophy Buck Suite and Buck Suite. The Buck and Trophy Buck Suites sleep 12 EACH, and are 1900 square feet each; the Fawn and Doe Suites are the largest 9 unit accommodations on Apex Ski Resort, perfect for a few small families to enjoy. Their sizes are 1100 square feet each, with pine ceilings, warm carpets in the bedrooms and tiled floors throughout.

Every suite has their own independent fireplace to snuggle up nearby after a big day on the slopes or in the back country. Yes, snowmobilers are very welcome and you can ski, snowboard, snowshoe, and snowmobile right out our back door.

Buck & Doe Suites adjoin to sleep 21 people.

Trophy Buck & Fawn Suites adjoin to sleep 21 people.

Go visit the busy city of Penticton and come back to the quiet of the stillness of the air in the mountains !! A perfect combination !!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had a truly amazing time and had by far our best family vacation in a really long time. The Chalet was the perfect size for such a large group, not once did I feel like I was tripping over people, the kitchen's had everything we needed, the beds were really comfy and the best part was coming home to sit in front of a fire every night after a day on the slopes".

Awesome place for a large family group

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was awesome, big open kitchen and living room, very clean, nice hot tub, not far from the village. The owners were very accommodating.

We would recommend to anyone with a large family group, lots of activity for everyone of every age range. The snow condition were amazing, our kids loved the ski hill, we also took part of the Tubing run at the mountain and the Brewski event we ran out of time to go skating.

We did all of our cooking there, and the only negative thing for me was the lack of kitchen dishes, but managed without. Thanks so much and we would definitely come back.
