Commonly Asked Questions

What on site amenities are open year round?

Our clubhouse (including gym, sauna, and steam room) and outdoor fire pit are open year round.  Our outdoor salt water pool and spa are seasonal and open from the May long weekend to October of each year.  Exact and opening and closing day are established based on weather.  Kayak, paddle board and paddle boat rentals are available from June to September.  

Is there a place to park my boat and trailer during my reservation?

All buoys are assigned based on your lodge number and you are guaranteed the use of your lodge’s buoy for the duration of your reservation.  We are unable to assign more than one buoy per lodge.  

Due to parking restraints, there are no trailers permitted on site at any time.  Trailer and vehicle overflow storage is available across from our resort thanks to our good neighbors.  Alternatively, you may contact Finz Bar & Grill, Bayside Marina, or Shuswap Marina to arrange trailer storage. 

Please note that all storage areas including overflow parking are subject to a storage/parking fee that is not included in your rental.

Is your resort pet friendly?

Our resort is semi-pet friendly.  Pets weighing over 25lbs are not permitted on any common property.  Any pets weighing under 25lbs must remain leashed at all times and follow our strict pet rules.  In addition, pets are not permitted in the pool or clubhouse area. 

We have three lodges within the resort that will consider pets.  We must be provided with the pet’s age, breed, and size at the time of the reservation.  Please note that any approved pets are subject to a pet fee of $25.00/night/pet. 

What is there to do outside of the resort?

The Shuswap is full of opportunity for all ages.  Our area is known for warm lakes, golf, farmers’ markets, wineries, hiking trails, and of course water activities.   We have an amazing tourism program that will connect you with your perfect journey!  Visit Shuswap Tourism for more information.
