The summer slowly begins to wind down, and the kids finally get back to school, it means, for some, that vacation time is about to begin! Late summer can be an amazing time to plan a last minute getaway, especially if know you the hot spots to go, like Walnut Beach Resort in the beautiful southern Okanagan Valley.
Quietly nestled along the shores of Osoyoos Lake, the warmest lake in Canada, is Walnut Beach Resort. This luxury resort property is the perfect place to sit back and relax, while you enjoy the late summer sun while sipping on your favourite glass of wine.
Just a stones throw away from over a dozen wineries located within minutes away, the modern luxury craftsman style resort is a great choice for a quiet late summer / early fall retreat, with warm, dry weather during the day, and clear, calm, brisk nights. During the day, kick back at the pool terrace, located in the center of the resort, overlooking the lake, or pull up a chair on the private beach where the peaceful waves crash along the shoreline. Either way, you can’t go wrong; however, you can order drinks poolside, if that does alter your plans.
The newest resort property in Osoyoos, the rooms at Walnut Beach Resort are tastefully decorated and well appointed with many modern conveniences travellers have come to expect including free in-room WiFi, crisp and soft linens, fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and flat screen televisions with TELUS Optik TV.
The décor incorporates many colours from the surrounding area, along with large windows to let the natural sunlight filter into the rooms. Stainless steel, wood, fabric, and granite surfaces bring a wide variety of textures into the room, making it feel warm and inviting.
Enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner, poolside, on the patio, or at the Vista Point restaurant, serving up a variety of house-made specialities, including from a knife and fork caesar salad to lamb chops served with seasonal vegetables. Paired with a glass of sangria or local wine, you can’t go wrong.
Keeping healthy and active on vacation is important. The resort offers a modest fitness area, perfect for doing some cardio to burn-off those vacation calories. There is also an outdoor walking trail along the lake, ideal for an after-dinner stroll. You can also detox and rejuvenate in the steam room, sauna, or the on-site spa.
Don’t let summer be over. Now’s the perfect time to get out and enjoy it. And it’s not going to cost an arm and leg either, especially with the low Canadian dollar, making the Walnut Beach Resort an even hotter Canadian destination!
