One of the most sought after areas in the Okanagan is the waterfront community named after a creek that runs through it:
Trout Creek is actually one of the key supply flows ensuring Okanagan Lake stays full of mountain fresh water. This fast moving creek is recipient of many smaller tributaries in the mountainous headwaters behind Summerland. The huge watershed area incorporates numerous lakes to ultimately supply vast amounts of water for many lush vineyards, orchards and gardens including the Federal Research Center. Citizens and visitors alike to the small town marvel at the greenery Summerland enjoys, right in the middle of a semi arid desert!
I have sold Real Estate in 3 different provinces in each of the last 4 decades, and now have the privelege to work as Realtor, founder and previous broker owner of RE/MAX in my own home town! Trout Creek is where I grew up, and having lived and sold R. E. in Toronto, Vancouver & Edmonton, well…I can tell you this is a special spot in the Okanagan. Being so close to Penticton, it also attracts some high end Penticton folks who choose to live here only 9 minutes on a 4laner into Pen.
What a wonderful place to own a property in a quiet neighborhood where anyone can walk to the lakeshore picnic areas, the two best beaches in the Okanagan (including Powell that gets hardly any tourists and has a LIGHTHOUSE!). Talk about a magnet for family memories to be made! Owning in this neighbourhood will draw your relatives and friends for many, many wonderful family memories, together. In fact, you should own here now, ESPECIALLY if you are not really ready to move for a few years. In a few years, this market will be so very different again, and you will be so glad you read all this! Seriously, though, step up and be a smart buyer that owns this one of a kind neighborhood in this one of a kind small town, you will always be glad you did. Trout Creek is sought after year in and year out. So quiet and private, and set back from the highway. Kids can ride the bikes to the tennis courts and the ball diamonds and lots of other kids here, too. Or, they can sit and play video games…you get the picture! You want this life for your kids! Trout Creek has two of the Okanagan’s finest beaches to choose from, plus a few different beach picnic accesses perfect to launch the kayaks…There is even a creek (hence the name of the area…Trout Creek) that the more adventurous kids will love throwing rocks into!

Safe, quiet, friendly and very little traffic…this is Trout Creek neighbourhood! And all in the small town of Summerland, just up the highway from Kelowna and Penticton, and all on Okanagan Lake!
