We planned for a weekend retreat/getaway and looked at various options of location, value and site amenities. A Livingsocial deal arrived in my email box and the info on the Summerland Waterfront Resort looked inviting. Having read other TA reviews, we opted for a 3rd floor, with a partial lakeview . The deal also included a bottle of local red wine, Sumac Ridge. As well, we booked a couples massage at Beyond Wrapture Day Spa.
One thing about this resort is that all the 114 suites are individually owned. And some are in a rental pool but maybe not at the same time? That's why only certain rooms are available. For the first weekend in November, there were a lot of empty suites. I suppose that makes it difficult for the front desk staff to change rooms for clients.
We found the 1 bedroom suite spacious, very clean and comfortable.. A well-equipped kitchen including a dishwasher. Lots of cupboard storage space. The bathroom was a good size too. A deep non-jetted tub, a separate extra large shower and lots of counter space. One annoying thing for my partner was the toilet seat lid. He has to use 1 leg to hold the lid up when he had to pe_ . Was this a plumbing design error? All it needed was to move the toilet forward about 2 inches to avoid this lid problem..
The queen bed has a fairly soft pillow top mattress but was still comfy for us. The pillows are great. An unusual feature is a separate glass sink in the bedroom. It looks great but I guess it's just for little wash-ups? No washcloths or towels are provided beside it. A older style 27" TV perches high
