Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort is located in an area known as the Napa of the North in the fertile South Okanagan wine country of British Columbia, overlooking Osoyoos Lake. The resort is conveniently located just five minutes from the Canada/US border. You are surrounded by the rolling vineyards and sun-drenched landscapes of wine country.
The parking is up at the top of the hill by Nk’Mip Cellars. Just check in at the building on the right. There’s a lot of free parking.
We stayed in the One Bedroom Villa, which faces East to see the beautiful vineyards and Okanagan Lake. Its base occupancy is 2 people but can have a maximum of 6 people inside.
It was a pretty nice day when we were staying here, so it was nice to be so close to the vineyards.
I found it interesting how the blocks of the villas were named after the types of wines.
There was even a fountain outside our door.
Once you walk inside, you will get a homey vibe from the decor. It felt like a home away from home.
There’s a dining table, couch with sofa bed, TV, fireplace and desk.
The space is great for families or people who are staying for a few days. Since it was just M and I, we didn’t really need the extra space.
In the kitchen, there are the usual appliances like fridge, sink, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher and a coffee maker. There’s also a washer and dryer in the villa.
The first bathroom was a sink, shower, and toilet.
The bedroom has its own tv, king size bed, and separate bathroom.
The bedroom has a tub and toilet in a separate room, but the sink it outside in the bedroom. I thought it was a little bit odd.
Outside on the patio is a soaker tub and some furniture so you can sit and enjoy the view. There’s also a BBQ Grill you can use too.
You can walk around the vineyards through a open gate by this huge map.
It’s a pretty nice stroll and you get to see their different types of grapes growing on the vines.
Try to get a room that faces the lake instead of the mountains.
They have many amenities that guest can enjoy, but a visit to their outdoor pools, hot tubs, and fitness centres seem to be popular. There are dining options at the resort too such as Talon’s Restaurant and Sonora Dune’s Grill.
Overall, it was a nice stay, but because it’s situated in a dessert, we did find many little critters hanging around in our villa. I ended up killing a few spiders in the bedroom and bathroom. Other than that, no other issues that we noticed.
