STAYING CLOSE BUT TRAVELLING FAR Naramata's Next Chapter Begins on June 5 for a Rooms-Only Opening

Updated: Jun 4, 2020

Naramata, BC - The legendary and historic Naramata Inn reopens its doors under new ownership on Friday, June 5 following months of renovations and refurbishment. With charm and character fully intact, the updated look is fresh, elegant and warm. The 112 year-old inn showcases the best of its heritage features with a youthful flair.

With 12 unique, period-style rooms, including a luxe two-bedroom suite and outdoor patios for all rooms, the sleepover vibe is simply indulgent. With a creative continental breakfast included each morning and an invitation to linger over morning coffee, gorgeous gardens and verandas to die for, there’s no better place to cozy up near the lake for a legendary Naramata summer.

Guests will need to wait a little longer to take a seat at one of Canada’s most anticipated new restaurants as chef Ned Bell and his team put the final touches on this hyper-local, ingredient-driven restaurant. Further announcements will follow in coming weeks.

A sneak preview of what a Naramata Inn summer adventure with chef Ned Bell could taste like will air on CTV’s The Marilyn Denis Show, Monday, June 1.

Reservations can now be made at Naramata Inn.

Naramata Inn will strictly follow all evolving recommendations of British Columbia’s public health officials to ensure that all provincial health and safety guidelines are exceeded. 

A Real Vacation Awaits Just a Short Drive Away When the Time is Right Now is the perfect time to plan a trip to one of the world’s most beautiful destinations. One that is the very definition of a vacation experience. Naramata invites visitors to keep it simple - no passports, no plane tickets, no borders. A four-hour drive from Vancouver, Naramata is located on the eastern shore of Okanagan Lake, just north of the city of Penticton.

Lakeshore, clay bluffs, vineyards and orchards frame the picturesque village that is light on rainfall and long on sunshine. The magical locale offers a sense of peace, beauty and perspective not easily replicated elsewhere.   The area has earned its reputation as an epic wine destination, home to more than three dozen wineries, all located within 15km of the Naramata Inn. The Naramata Bench has been officially recognized as a unique wine-growing sub-appellation thanks to a rare blend of climates, geology, history, time and temperature. Pairing with passionate and talented growers and vintners continues to result in award-winning wines that have become an unmistakable calling card for Naramata.  Naramata has beautiful sandy beaches that frame its slice of lovely Lake Okanagan. It is home to local artisans, cottage industries, a farmers market, and the Kettle Valley Railway trail - known for the awe-inspiring lake and vineyard views it affords its hikers and bikers. The village boast tree-lined streets made for strolling, while outdoor enthusiasts are spoiled for choice with options for biking, stand up paddle boarding, swimming, hiking, fishing, boating, off-roading, bird-watching, and more.
