  • Description


    We are a Resort in the Central Okanagan since 1928, surrounded by true Canadian Wilderness. Our place is family oriented and focuses on outdoor activities like canoeing, kayaking, hiking, boating and wildlife viewing. We live off grid on a 50 acre property. With a changing climate, hotter temperatures and less precipitation we are experiencing a severe increase in exposure to wildfires. To protect the property we need to implement a program of wildfire mitigation.
