Wellness Retreat on Kootenay lake

We truly value travelers who choose to work with us and we offer an experience that can't be beat. Live in nature on the shores of a beautiful lake and minutes from a historic town. The work is varied and physical, so being in good shape is an asset.

Our team all live locally and have chosen this town for the charm and inclusiveness that it offers. We treat our volunteers with respect, offering a clean and comfortable space to live in with nutritious meals, some created by our chef, and some created by the volunteers themselves. The Sentinel is 10 minutes outside of the village of Kaslo, and we will do our best to offer rides to our volunteers to and from on days off. Life here works well for those who want to unplug from technology and be close to nature. Our team works hard and enjoys the variety in making The Sentinel a beautiful place for our guests and team members. We are currently undergoing an extensive upgrade to our infrastructure and some construction noise and disruption is to be expected.

This was the most magical experience I could have ever dreamed of. Shannon and Janet made me feel so welcome and are both wonderful human beings.
Andrea the head chef is amazing!
I throughly enjoyed my work at The Sentinel, which varired between grounds keeping and house keeping, we had a very comfortable room on the beautiful property.
Everyone there made our experience so welcoming and special, I would recommend this stay to anyone.

My partner and I were welcomed by everyone at The Sentinel who are all wonderful people. The property is in a beautiful part of the world and the work I was doing helped me learn about groundskeeping and I felt proud about the positive impact we made here.

I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to immerse themselves in the Canadian lifestyle.

It's amazing here the property is absolutely beautiful and the staff are all super lovely. All the food is organic, and you get your own room (not many people can say they stayed at a wellness retreat for 4+ weeks). There is a sauna/spa are that overlooks the lake surrounded by mountains that tower over you, its out of town and very peaceful. The work is fun and satisfying. It's very easy going here and I recommend everyone give it a shot.
