Thanksgiving Dinner – Island Lake Style! Sunday Oct 8th

Island Lake Lodge - August 10, 2017 - 13:20

Fall is always a special time at the lodge and seems to have its own distinct feeling. The fall colours show themselves, the days are a bit shorter, the nights a bit cooler and the trails a bit quieter. Around harvest time and thanksgiving, everyone loves a good Turkey Dinner shared with friends and family. This year our creative culinary team is planning a very special 4 course harvest thanksgiving dinner using pumpkin/squash, turkey, apples/pears, sage, cheese and some local foraged items.  Help us give thanks to the end of another wonderful summer season and fall harvest.

  • First course: Spiced pumpkin veloute, smoked fennel
  • Second: Grilled kale salad, honeyed carrot crisps, oka cheese
  • Third: ‘Two way turkey’ sage roasted breast, confit leg, sweet potato gratin
  • Fourth: Chocolate souffle, poached pear
  • The 4 course wine pairing will feature the Island Lake Lodge private label 3 Bears wines and also highlight Naramata’s La Frenz Winery

Adults $99 (including 4 wine pairings) Children $39 (under 12)

Why drive home after filling yourself with such delicious food? Stay the night for just $129 per room. (plus tax and based on double occupancy)

Join us Sunday Oct 8th for this very special dinner and final evening of the season.

Winter Wonderland Christmas

Island Lake Lodge - August 9, 2017 - 13:23

Christmas is of course a spectacular time around Island Lake.  The snow caked forest around the lodge and the peaks of the 3 bears just beyond are simply postcard perfect.  Imagine you and your family and or friends gathered around a picturesque fireplace in the cozy log lodges.  Our creative culinary team will take care of the food and add a bit of Island Lake flare to the traditional Christmas dinner.

There are 12 catski seats available, but lots of room for non-skiing friends and family.  In addition to catskiing, partake in snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, tobogganing, spa treatments or just lounge by the fire with a good book.

3 day / 3 night Catskiing packages start at $2,466 CAN

Non Skiing 3 day / night packages start at $599 CAN

December 23 – 26, 2017 (3 days and 3 nights)

New Interpretive Signs

Island Lake Lodge - August 3, 2017 - 09:32

Island Lake and the Cedar Valley in which it sits, has a long history full of fascinating information.  From the long history of use by locals and and early forestry companies, to the flora and fauna and geology of the valley – there are many interesting facts. Guests to the area are always fascinated and want to know as much as a possible.  In order to help facilitate this, we have designed and set up 5 new Interpretative signs.  There are located 4 on the Lake Trail and 1 on the Fir Tail.
