We are located in a supremely tranquil spot, overlooking a pristine lake, with towering peaks straight across from us. Far away indeed from the trappings of urban life.


But that does not mean you need to rough it during your stay with us. Comfortable rooms, lovely grounds, and stellar service are matched by our cuisine, spa area, and rugged lakeshore.

Food is one of our delicious passions at The Sentinel. Overnight guests may order a delicious breakfast at registration, prepared from scratch by our talented kitchen staff each morning using seasonal, local  ingredients whenever possible.

We can also prepare snacks, lunches, and lovely evening meals, working with event organizers, for our retreat guests. 

Hot tub + sauna


Relax and unwind in our cedar-lined hot tub overlooking Kootenay Lake and the soaring Purcell Range. Enjoy our unique wood-fired sauna, adjacent to the hot tub. To complete the experience, immerse yourself in the copper plunge tub — then head for the heat!



Directly below the Lodge and spa deck, our 700′ of smooth-rock lakefront provides the perfect place to soak in the alpine vibe, meditate, stretch, do yoga, gather around a campfire — and by all means, take a dip!
