A Toast to Small-Town Living

Some of our favourite things about small-town living are the "gems" that you find on a road less traveled.

Visitors can enjoy tastings of premium wines made from locally grown grapes, as well as take a stroll through the vineyards to learn about the winemaking process.

Top Honours for Environmentalism & Sustainability

Each year, the Summerland Chamber of Commerce hosts the Business and Community Excellence Awards, an annual event that recognizes a handful of businesses and community organizations that support and enhance life in Summerland. During this year’s gala, more than 60 nominees and business leaders gathered to celebrate 15 Business Award recipients, 3 Community Award recipients and the Mayor’s Award of Excellence recipient.

A Place Where Lifestyle and Nature Meet

Summerland has long called to nature-lovers and those seeking a slice of the Okanagan lifestyle. From its rocky, volcanic slopes above to the orchards, vineyards and beaches below, Summerland offers the allure of a slower pace of life, and a path less traveled. Nestled between rolling golden hills and the sparkling Okanagan Lake, we’re fortunate to live alongside the beauty of this area, crafting a carefully designed community woven into a natural preserved setting. At Hunters Hill, the charms of a small-town living, and a slower pace of life find a welcome home.  Featuring over 80 acres of preserved land, including meadows, forests, grasslands, bluffs and scenic wetlands, Hunters Hill honours the connection and balance between nature and the growing community, ever mindful of the habitats of our native plant and animal species.

If you’re feeling more daring, the multitude of mountain biking and outdoor activity opportunities are abundant within your own little corner of the valley.
