escape to an enchanted oasis

All the wellness experiences happen on our beautiful, expansive property that sits on the tranquil shores of Kootenay Lake.  Amplified by dynamic snow-capped peaks, this destination invites you to breathe in the therapeutic serenity of mother nature.

Considered by First Nations to have ancient healing properties, the land itself offers a place where people can hear themselves, sometimes for the first time in their lives.

Anchored by its spectacular timber-frame, round Maloca with its excellent acoustics and astonishing lake and mountain views, The Sentinel provides the perfect setting for intimate workshops, retreats, and performances.

The main lodge, with its welcoming woodstove, extensive decks, and custom furnishings provides a  relaxed setting for quiet conversations, a cup of tea or espresso, and a good book.

The spa deck overlooking the lake features a wood-fired sauna and sunken cedar hot tub. The Sentinel’s 700 feet of shoreline provide the perfect spot to do yoga or Tai chi, enjoy a campfire, take a plunge into the refreshing waters of Kootenay Lake, or simply relax and take in the splendid view.
