Live in SummerlandSituated neatly between Peachland and Penticton on Okanagan Lake, Summerland is the perfect-size small town. With summer literally in the name you can expect a multitude of beaches in Summerland to enjoy, plus lush orchards, many spectacular vineyards, and some truly breathtaking views of Okanagan Lake, especially from luxury homes. The relatively small size of the city offers many opportunities to get to know people and make friends, especially in gated communities in Summerland. However, Summerland is large enough that amenities are never more than a few minutes away. Deciding where to live in Summerland is a matter of picking how far away you’d like to be from the hustle and bustle of the city, versus living close to all the aspects of daily living you’d like to enjoy.
