For many, autumn is the best time of year to travel. The kids are back to school (fingers crossed!), traffic is lighter and, in wine country, the harvest and crush provides plenty of excitement. From its position on Okanagan Lake in the Naramata townsite, the Naramata Heritage Inn is a perfect refuge for people who just want to slow down for a few days. The End of the Road Bistro and Cobblestone Wine Bar offer great dining options, with Chef AK Campbell weaving his magic spell in the kitchen.
This fall, the Naramata Heritage Inn & Spa will be celebrating the arrival of WestJet by offering getaway packages to neighbors in Calgary. A special Escape Package will include shuttle to and from the airport, accommodation in the Heritage Inn, a $75 in-house restaurant credit and a $75 credit to relax in the award winning Aveda Spa. On departure, guests will receive a 3-hour wine tour of bench wineries before being transported back to the airport for the journey home.

It’s a steal of a deal, starting at $228 plus tax, not including airfare, for a Queen Heritage Room. Westjet Encore will be offering flights starting at $79 plus taxes starting on October 26th.

The Naramata Heritage Inn & Spa will also be offering a number of promotions through the fall and winter, so be sure to keep an eye on their Facebook page, website or call for current special promotions. Make your reservations soon, and then enjoy the anticipation of an idyllic getaway to Naramata!
