Winter weekend escapes give us city slickers the brief respite required to survive the long haul to the new year. Some of us have the time and money to head to the tropics each winter, but for the rest of us, BC’s year-round resorts and cabins give burned-out parents the opportunity to recharge pretty close to home. Summerland Resort in the gorgeous Okanagan is one of those destinations, and they’ve got a special package in November that you might want to check out for a kid-free winter weekend getaway.
This 4-star resort is hosting an event called Light up the Vines. They call it a magical weekend of wine touring and tasting overlooking the wineries of Bottleneck Drive, where vineyards are adorned with festive sparkling lights to get you in the mood for winter festivities. The packages include luxury suite stay, transportation, wine tastings, a bottle of red or white wine, and a cheese platter from $250 for two.
The Light Up the Vines package includes:
- One night’s accommodation in our Studio Bluffview Suite
- Two Bottleneck Drive Wineries tour tickets
- Shuttle transportation to and from wineries with Top Cat Tours
- Bottle of Summerland Waterfront Resort & Spa special label wine
- Gourmet cheese platter in your suite upon arrival
It’s available for two weekends only: Nov 18-20 and Nov 25-27 Sounds like a nice way to kick off the holiday season.
Keep in mind that Summerland’s Festival of Lights starts November 25th, so you may want to time your visit with this fun and festive event. The town is transformed into a holiday wonderland with events like fireworks, Santa photos, pony rides, ATV rides, performers, and an art show. Two ice carving stations will be wowing the crowds and a host of food and gift vendors will line the streets.
