sentinel store to officially launch in 2021!

Sentinel 24 NATURE

Stunning original photography. Transformational courses and video series. Unique health products. Inspirational literature, music, and podcasts.

You’ll find them all in the Sentinel Store, beginning in early 2021!

For example, a five-part video series by outstanding Somatic Movement educator, Kim Novotny, and body/life transformational programs by innovative health coach, Jackie Lede.


The Sentinel is a lakeside retreat and wellness centre, nestled on the western shore of magnificent Kootenay Lake, in southeastern British Columbia. 

We are a boutique mountain lodge, offering discerning travellers elegant rooms, stunning views, a spa deck, 700 feet of Zen-like Kootenay Lake private shoreline — and best of all, tranquility.

We also offer transformative experiences designed to elevate your mind, empower your body, and invigorate your soul.


kaslo — kootenay style

We are located in a very special part of the world. 

The Sentinel is situated on the eastern shore of fjord-like Kootenay Lake, less than 10 minutes from the lovely village of Kaslo. With its spectacular physical setting, its Victorian-era architecture, its surprising array of amenities, and, best of all, its charming, creative, occasionally quirkily colourful citizens, Kaslo provides Sentinel guests, particularly those from urban centres, with an unforgettable experience.
