“So wonderful, we can't say enough”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011

OHHHH MY GOODNESS!!!

As a last minute decision my boyfriend and I thought we'd see if there was vacancy at Quaaout Lodge, we weren't sure if we were going to stay being the long weekend and just went to inquire. Wendy and Joan were at the desk and happy to show us a suite. We fell in love instantly with the jacuzzi room (the olny rooms available) but what sold us were the ladies helping us. They were so friendly and made us feel welcome. The trend followed through the entire staff during our stay, they didn't seem to just be doing their jobs but genuinely making sure we were enjoying our stay.....Trudy went way out of her way and made my day!

I second all of the positive reviews given here; the beauty, the amazing food, the pristine golf course (my boyfriend is an avid golfer and was very impressed) , the spa, all amazing. Brunch is a must if you are there on a Sunday but make a reservation.

I have to say; I have had a 15 year career in this industry all in 5 star brand resorts. Admittedly, I have high expectations and usually leave resorts happy but with a 'but'. There are no buts here:)

As an aside I was lucky enough to witness a wedding from our balcony and it looked absolutely perfect and very well done.

Enjoy your stay here, we have now found a sanctuary and are very much looking forward to our next visit. (I have a feeling it will be sooner than we had planned...)

We stayed for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our room was lovely. The balcony was a very nice spot to enjoy the view of the lake and grounds, and the fresh air.
The bathtowels are huge and the linens immaculate. And a very comfortable bed.
The food was very nicely presented and very tasty, good sized portions. We particularily liked the salmon burger and ceaser salad from the lunch menu - we are still talking about how fine it was. The meal and drink prices are very reasonable. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. Too, bad this fine place isn't closer to our home in the Victoria area.

Room Tip: We appreciated having a '2nd floor' room which is where the front desk and restaurant/bar a...

I had great time at this lodge.. The rooms are big and comfortable, the bathroom is clean and my room had a balcony with the view on Shuswap lake, great!!! You can also go for a walk and learn something more about the natives..the restaurant was very good, with fish and meat dishes. Of course there's nothing around so come here just to' relax and enjoy the nature in itself..

Thank you for the wonderful review of the Quaaout Lodge. I am glad that you enjoyed your visit to our resort here on Little Shuswap Lake, and hope that we will have the opportunity to have you stay with us again on a future visit to Canada. We are happy to offer lake view balconies and patios on all of guest rooms since our renovation in 2010.

This is a great place to get away from it all and kick back and relax. On a future visit you might consider staying long enough to pamper yourself in our new spa, try out our golf course (lessons available from our golf academy), or have some fun with some of the other activities available here in the area including river rafting, hiking, horseback trail rides, boat cruises, fishing, helicopter tours, wine tours, and more.

Thank you again for your review.

All the best.

Stayed here on our Wedding night in the Bridal Suite. The room was great. It had separate living and sleeping areas with a TV in each room. There were 2 bathrooms...perfect for getting ready...and one had a large and relaxing jacuzzi tub something every bride can use on her big day. The furnishings were great and allowed us to have a nice space to relax after the ceremony and before dinner complete with an electric fireplace. The room was immaculate and the bedding was very comfortable. In the morning we were able to relax on our big deck overlooking part of the lake and the resort grounds. The staff were very friendly and check in was a breeze. The restaurant has amazing food and a great Sunday brunch for everyone to enjoy. I would reccommend this to any couple looking to celebrate their wedding in style!

12 of us went golfing for the weekend. The course was in pristine condition, the rooms were well appointed, clean and comfortable, and the food was incredible. The staff made sure we had everything we needed. We'll be back for sure!

The hotel is spectacular with authentic native art, genuine tipis and a fantastic atmosphere near a nice lake.
The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room was comfortable, not luxurious, clean and nicely decorated. Just opened the curtains to have a beautiful lake view.
Very relaxing and quiet, with an amazing golf course. Breakfast and dinner were very good. Without any doubt a recommended place to rest.

The moment we arrived we were impressed. The Quaaout Lodge is pristine. The guest rooms immaculate. We had a king size bed, luxurious, thick bath towels and robes, and a beautiful view. The staff, from the registration desk, the dining room, pro shop, and golf course were second to none. The golf course had only opened for the season about 10 days before we played and it was in great shape. Our dining experiences were also exceptional. Everything was beautifully presented and delicious. Thank you Stephan for this fabulous getaway. We will be spreading the word about this awesome resort and yes, we will be back.
