My wife and I spent five extremely enjoyable days at Ming and Walter's bed and breakfast. They have somehow managed to combine accommodations like a boutique hotel with the personal touches that every visitor hopes for. I would simply run out of superlatives for this place.

6 ladies on a wine tour. Amazing location, beautiful views, fabulous breakfast! Watched quails and their chicks eating on the hillside during morning coffee. Beds were super comfortable, she even had home made warm ginger cookies and fresh peaches waiting for us.

Spend two wonderful days in Summerland at this b&b, and what shall I say, close to perfection! Rooms are very nicely and thought through decorated, bathrooms just gorgeous, the breakfast is a piece of art and the hosts were very nice and helpful. If we ever have the chance to go back to Summerland, we definitely will stay there!
