RICHARD & GILLIAN

The Sentinel’s founders and co-CEOs, Gillian Maxwell and Richard Kay, represent a powerful partnership in marriage and life experience.

“We think of The Sentinel as a custodian. A wise presence that watches over the land and cares for the people that live and spend time on this beautiful property.”

We believe that the path to self-discovery looks different for everyone. Whether you build resilient leadership through the lense of jazz, or find love, joy and pleasure in your physical body through conscious movement, we look forward to being a part of your journey.

WE EXIST TO REALIZE THE FULL POTENTIAL OF HUMANITY.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING

01

A pearl on the Lake. Went for the day with the woman I love to experience the spa. The cedar tub and sauna were delightful, but all the buildings in general were impressive and thoughtfully designed for physical relaxation and spiritual elevation. The staff were friendly and accommodating and I would recommend checking it out 🙂

Had the chance to stay twice at The Sentinel in the past year. This is an amazing space. The gorgeous lake and most amazing views of the mountains contribute to create an atmosphere of peace, reflection, creativity and inspiration. The facilities are already amazing and continuously expanding.

The place is absolutely stunning. Never seen scenery like that. Only thing better was the staff. From the general manager, to the chef to the owners themselves. It was a place of health and serenity. Dog friendly and have an amazing dock and sauna. We can’t wait to go back. Only a few rooms so it always felt calm, quiet and relaxing.
