A Weekend in Kaslo

There is a popular question asked frequently when arriving in Kaslo for the first time: What is there to do? This usually comes after you step out of the car and soak in the incredible mountain and lake views! Then reality sinks in, there is no Cineplex Odeon, we don't have a professional sports team, and we definitely don't have a mall... in fact, you could walk the entire town in about an hour.

So what do you do?

Valentine's Day Fun Facts

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Thank you to SheKnows.com for providing this fun bit of Valentine's Day Trivia! I was thinking of writing a poem and sharing it with the world; however, when you're at Wing Creek most of the work is already done for you. Tonight our guests will curl up in their cottages, light a romantic fire, and share a glass of wine in one of the most peaceful settings in the world. So the poem might be a little over the top.

Enjoy!!!
