We spent 4 wonderful days here at Wing Creek and really loved our stay. When we arrived, there was snow at the tip of the mountains and by the time we had left, it had melted!.The cottages/cabins are superbly fitted out and whilst being quite compact, offer every facilty for simple self-catering. They are immaculately clean and wonderfully comfortable. Debra and Kevin were wonderfully friendly, welcoming and helpful, even to inviting us out into "their wood " to see a bear!
We had superb varied experiences of hiking up to the Idaho Peak, the very relaxing and interesting river walk in lovely Kaslo, combined with just "chilling " in the cottage and enjoying the fun of cooking a Bratwurst (from the excellent local butcher) on the private beach's camp fire and also using the resort's BBQ to cook our evening meal. It is a wonderful walk down to the lake through the woodland path, smelling of cedars to the private beach on the lake.
Kaslo became our favourite Canadian town, so very friendly and scenic right by the Kootenay Lake and with a wonderful bakery, sending smells of fantastic cinnamon buns right up the street!
We highly recommend this resort and follow it on with the superbly scenic drive all along Lake Kootenay to Fernie, exquisite unspoilt Canadian scenery!
