Naramata Inn, Naramata, B.C.
Opened June 29 (Inn opened June 5)
You know the “How it Started, How it’s Going” meme? Imagine you’re one of four partners who buy a century-old hotel in the Okanagan, in February 2020. Some landscaping and paint, you figure, and you can open her up by May. But then the pandemic heats up, you end up investing in a new kitchen, renovating the dining room and the guest rooms – all without knowing when (or if) you’ll be able to launch. That’s how it started.
