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.
