Make Okanagan Memories this Mother’s Day

Osoyoos has been the place to celebrate mothers for generations!

Remember those family vacations, when Mom packed everyone into the station wagon and took the whole clan on a road trip? Endless rounds of “I’m going on a picnic” as you rode through the winding Rocky Mountain passes. Backseat bickering along rainy Vancouver highways. Static on the wonky car radio trying Mom’s patience.

But it was always worth it, because eventually, the evergreens gave way to the stunning, sparse desert, and the glittering oasis of Osoyoos Lake. Mom (and you!) could begin your vacation.

The South Okanagan was pretty low-key back then. The natural beauty and welcoming spirit were the main draws. A trip to Osoyoos meant camping in the surrounding orchards, eating popsicles on the beach, splashing in the warm water. Relaxed and rejuvenated, you headed home with a car full of farm-fresh produce and lovely family memories! And Mom made it all happen.

How the South Okanagan has blossomed since then!

A family vacation to Osoyoos now includes award-winning wine tastings, unique adventures, and world-class cuisine. Sleeping bags on dusty ground? No way! Now Mom (and you!) can rest comfortably in a well-appointed suite, with a full kitchen and incredible views. Watermark Beach Resort boasts a lakeside swimming pool and hot tub that guarantee no sand in your bathing suit! Enjoy watersports right from our beach, and let our concierge arrange for memorable culinary tours of the region.

Let Mom know how much you appreciate all of those years she spent lugging your suitcases and floats and beach balls; treat her to a day of pampering at the Levia Spa, or a shopping trip to Main Street’s boutiques. Crown your weekend getaway with Chef Adair Scott’s take on the traditional Mother’s Day Brunch. Enjoy delectable regional fare while you reminisce about those Okanagan vacations from your childhood –she’ll be delighted!

You can still send Mom home with a car full of the best local fruit (including the drinkable kind…), and plenty of new memories to make her smile.

The South Okanagan is a timeless playground, Mom knew it then, and she’ll remember it now. Mother’s Day at Watermark Beach Resort offers the sentimental (and awfully fun!) way to say, “Thanks, Mom!”
