The Sentinel Awaits You


JUST PASSING THROUGH and need a lovely room for a night? We may be the perfect stopover — an intimate retreat centre that can provide overnight accommodations for discerning travellers who value tranquility and friendly, personalized service over the absence of in-room coffee makers and televisions.

Or perhaps you’d like to create your own personalized retreat in an astonishingly beautiful setting?  Regardless, we’ll take care of you!

OUR BEAUTIFUL 5.6-ACRE property sits on the serene shores of Kootenay Lake, BC, just 7km down the road from the picturesque village of Kaslo. We boast 7 luxury rooms, sauna, hot tub, sunroom, and a spectacular round, timber frame gathering space. Kootenay Lake is at your front door. Sit by the shore and read. Take a dip in the invigorating mountain water. Relax!


WHETHER YOU’RE CRAVING, a mindful week filled with yoga, meditation, and nature walks, or an adventure getaway complete with kayaking to waterfalls, hikes with stunning views, world-class mountain biking, best-on-the-planet heli-skiing — or you’re simply looking for a blissfully tranquil place to rest your weary head — we’re here to help you customize your dream escape.


DURING YOUR STAY, we can offer access to highly skilled bodywork professionals who specialize in massage, acupuncture, cranial sacral, cupping, Reiki, and much more. Just let us know your wishes.




BE PREPARED TO wake up to views of a lifetime — all our rooms afford stunning vistas of fjord-like Kootenay Lake and the soaring, snowcapped Purcell Range. Luxuriate in your cozy bed while watching the sun rise over the peaks before joining us for a breakfast graced by produce picked from our organic garden. Sentinel meals are  lovingly prepared — we’ll do our best to suit your nutritional needs.

BOOK YOUR VISIT and we’ll be in touch, to help create an experience unique to you, an experience you won’t soon forget!
