Your Dream Destination

Sitting amongst the beautiful rolling vineyards and dramatic landscape is Summerland Waterfront Resort & Spa. As the premier accommodation in Summerland, this well known resort attracts visitors from all around the world to enjoy a relaxing lakeside vacation. Whether it’s a family vacation or a romantic getaway, you’re sure to enjoy a luxurious experience.

The popular captivation of this waterfront resort dates back over 100 years. In 1902, the hotel was developed, catering to elite travelers who wanted to experience a true summer haven. The Victorian style hotel welcomed guests for over 20 years, but was devastated by a forest fire in 1925. Today, the Resort sits on the same Okanagan shoreline as the previous hotel. Not forgetting its past, SWR credits much of its success to the deep history in which it was built on. The goal here remains the same – provide guests with an exceptional lakeside resort experience in one of the most sought after summer destinations.
