Escape Kit

  • A One-Night Stay for Two in a Mountain-View Studio Suite
  • Bottle of Okanagan Wine for Sunday through Thursday Stays
  • Combine Vouchers to Stay for Up to Two Nights

Widely considered to be the most temperate town in the country, Osoyoos is home to Canada's longest growing season and its warmest lake, not to mention its only arid desert.

If you're not ready to welcome the icy weather, Escape on this overnight stay for two in a designer suite at the Walnut Beach Resort ($85). You'll receive a bottle of Okanagan Wine with your stay if you visit from Sundays through Thursdays. Peer out at the rocky skyline from your mountain-view Studio Suite, which is furnished with designer counter tops, a flat-screen TV, and an upscale kitchenette with mini-bar fridge.

Dine at the resort's trendy Promenade Tapas & Wine Bar, or wander through the area's overgrown orchards, which promise juicy peaches, cherries, apples, and apricots well into the fall season.

This getaway at the tip of the Sonoran Desert is also edging its way onto must-visit lists for vino aficionados, "making a rapid transition to a wine country resort destination in its own right," says Frommer's. Take a self-guided tour through the acclaimed Tinhorn Creek Vineyard, and sample fine wines at any of the countless wineries throughout the Okanagan Valley.

Hot to trot? Traverse the area on horseback with a trusty steed from Indian Grove Riding Stables. Nk Mip Cellars, Canada's first native-owned winery, offers tour and tastings as well as a full-service restaurant and nine-hole golf course.

When the temperatures drop and the chill sets in, you don't have to grit your teeth and bear it. Instead, Escape to Osoyoos, where the weather is mild and the scene is hot.

  • "With its own sandy beach on the shores of Osoyoos Lake, this lovely resort has an away-from-it-all ambience, helped by the fact that it's at the end of a road in a quiet residential neighborhood."
