Situated on the outskirts of Salmo, BC, For-rest Retreat is a space for people to gather, re-set, nourish their souls and have space to wander.

We currently have two overnight rentals on the property, Keystone Cabin and the Casita, a gathering space in our 30′ yurt, plenty of open space for camping, parking and event tents, a wood-fired pizza oven, Zen garden and over 3km of trails on our 54 acre property.

We are still developing our property and will continue to build more rentals and trails. By next summer (2023), we will have event tents for small weddings and gatherings.

Currently, we can host up to 8 guests in our 2 rentals. We also host year -round community classes, lessons, meetings, workshops and retreats in the yurt.

We would like to acknowledge that For-rest Retreat is in the traditional and ancestral territories of the Sinixt, the Syilx, and the Ktunaxa people.

Looking for an affordable Wedding Venue in the Kootenays? We are now taking bookings for weddings of up to 100 people.
Our package includes a full weekend facility rental from Friday until Sunday.
