Your Grape Escape

Fall is wine festival time in the Okanagan but have you ever thought about actually being part of the grape harvest? Well now you can. Jayne and Paul Graydon, owners of Saxon Estate Winery will show you how to harvest grapes this coming October. You get to live the life of a vintner and it helps them as well!
Saxon Estate Winery is a 4-acre organic vineyard is in the shadow of Giant Head Mountain in Summerland, BC. It is one of the oldest established vineyards in BC, being planted in 2000 when the original owners replaced an ageing organic orchard with four varietals: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer and Léon Millot. Saxon is the only grower of this grape in the Okanagan.

Come stay with us at the Peachland Eagles Nest B&B and get your hands dirty with the winemaker in a true wine festival manner by harvesting the grapes. It is not a difficult process. One clips the bunch from the vine making sure there are no leaves and dead grapes. Place the bunch in a basket and then grab another bunch and clip it from the vine. That’s it. You are surrounded by the beauty of the vines, the smell of the earth and the vistas of fall colours.

The Eagles Nest

The property its self is very interesting with its many changes in landscape and views. There are many large Ponderosa Pines on the property. The two homes and RV site sits by themselves and are very private. There is room for ample parking by the cedar split rail fence. There are hiking trails just minutes away up on the next ridge. Watch for the local herd of Black Tail Deer and black bears moving up through our property from the lake to the park on the ridge above. There are many birds flitting about in the pines.

There are 3 options available, the Treehouse Suite, The Orchard House, the Blue Horizon Suite. Each with their own private deck and entrance. You can rent one or a number of the accommodations. If all were rented then the Peachland Eagles Nest B&B can host 15 people, more if you bring an RV.

If you are renting either of the Treehouse Suite, the Orchard House or the Blue Horizon Suite there is space for short term RV and boat parking upon request.

Peachland

The Peachland Eagles Nest B&B® is located above the lovely little town of Peachland in the heart of the Okanagan Valley. Lake, beaches, wineries and tours, festivals, concerts, boat races, fine dining, ski hills, bike terrains, zip lining, ATV tours and more are just the beginning of what our community has year round for people of all ages. Three world class ski hills within 1 to 1.5 hours’ drive during the winter and Okanagan Lake to enjoy during the summer. And don’t miss the wine festival and all the ripe fruit you can pick.

Peachland is the only town on the Lake that retained its beach front. You can walk the length of the town on the Heritage Walk along Beach Avenue. This gives you a chance to stop for a coffee, choose a restaurant for lunch or dinner, which includes the famous Gasthaus or visit and our great little hardware store, Peachland Gallery in the Old Schoolhouse or one of the boutiques.
