This is such a unique resort. A beautiful property overlooking Kootenay Lake - thoughtfully planned facilities, charming and super cozy cottages - and lots to do in the area if you want to explore a little. Very quiet, very peaceful, very private. Even a trail down to the resort’s own beach. And the delightful fireplace in the cottage !
This place is amazing! The perfect place to unwind....get away from busy life. If I pictured the perfect place to live...this would be it. My highlights would be the wildlife on the property...my favorites were the hummingbirds, chickadees, rabbits, squirrels and deer. The morning view was breathtaking! I could sit out there for hours with the noise of the creek flowing close by. We stayed in cabin 5. The cabin is perfect for a couple. It was clean. The bed was very comfortable. There was everything you needed for the perfect stay. The walk down to the water was easy....going up a little harder. :) We just stopped for little rests along the way. We went down to the water 4 of the 5 nights we stayed....and we had the entire place to ourselves! Again....another places I could lose hours listening to the creek in the background. Deb and Kevin were the best hosts you could ask for. Their property is beautiful, and thank you for sharing it with us. Hubby and I will be coming back, soon! Christy and Leigh…
Located just outside of Kaslo on Kootenay Lake, Wing Creek Resort is a superior resort to anywhere I have ever stayed in my travels. What a gem to find off the beaten path. First off they have a decent large professional sign! Take note the rest of B.C.! It reflects the experience you are going to get. Debra and Kevin are superb hosts. Helpful, cheerful and a great sense of humour. The cabins are private, impeccably clean with fully equipped kitchens, a lovely private porch, finished inside like an upscale home, with endless thoughtful touches that reflect the great care of the owners. The beach is just a short hike through the forested trail to some nicely arranged enclaves where you can sit around a campfire and enjoy the lake. If you are looking to really get away and relax, forget Banff, the trip to Wing Creek is more rewarding and a great home base to explore the Kootenay region. Edmonton, Alberta…
I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked my stay at Wing Creek...but an expectations I did have were blown out of the water when I arrived! Beautiful location with cozy, private cabins. Not to mention the amazing hospitality! I am already dreaming of the day I can return!
My now husband and I were unimpressed with Wing Creek Resort for a honeymoon destination. On the phone we were assured exceptional privacy, limited interaction with people and the ultimate honeymoon experience. We were disappointed with the basic motel like cabins - although they were functional - they were plain and did not do the view or surrounds justice. We had absolutely no privacy, especially for our first honeymoon night - we could see buildings out of every window and could see the office and road right from our bed - no privacy and no view. When we decided not to stay another night and politely asked for a refund, it was declined and we were treated kurtly, almost rudely and were told untruths by the owners.. We would not reccomend staying there for a honeymoon. The price is shocking for what you get out of the cabins - there are more unique places with the same view. We were guarenteed solitude, yet had to keep our curtains closed - definitely not our style. We would appreciate honesty and friendliness in the future. Levi and Cheyenne…
Wing Creek Resort is a true retreat. It is quiet and private, yet close enough to quaint Kaslo to go in to town for dinner. The cabins are cosy and clean. The grounds are gorgeous and the views are awesome. A perfect spot to rest and unwind. Kevin and Deb are perfect hosts.
This is the place to say hello to yourself and your partner. Places such as this are rare and become coveted gems once discovered. The overwrought life full of stress and electronic buzz ends here in exquisite perfection and planning to the last iota. Kevin and Debra are generous in their warmth and hospitality, and let me say, the muffins at breakfast are the best. I note that I told Debra I liked blackberries. Voila, next morning there were blackberries. I will say no more, because the last such place we discovered and whose merits I extolled far and wide now requires up to two years advance booking.
Beautiful spot, grounds immaculate, cabins small and clean with everything you need (no TV but who cares, just look out the window or sit on the deck and admire the mountains and stars at night) hosts very helpful and gracious. So peaceful and relaxing. Bit of a walk to the lake, downhill so uphill coming back. Walk to the orchard. Just a short drive into Kaslo for dinner with great food at the Kaslo Hotel & Pub.
While a little way out of Kaslo, the location is brilliant. Lovely cabins with high end facilities (no TV though) so be prepared to read and to wander the orchards, pick fruit in season and enjoy the tranquility. Our hosts were truly accommodating and a delight to meet.
What a beautiful and classy gem of a retreat-style place to stay. The amenities in the private cottages are first rate and the wood burning fireplaces are simply the best. Debra and Kevin are wonderful and lovely hosts - their attention to detail in all regards to their resort and their guests show that this is truly a labour of love. Oh, and the bed and its pillows and linens were perfect! The trees, the gentle running creek, the birds, flowers and bunnies; the private beach front on beautiful Kootenay Lake, the peace and quiet - it's all is so exquisite. So serene and wholesome. We have visited Wing Creek three times and we always look forward to returning to this piece of heaven. The biggest challenge is having to pack and leave!
