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 three overnight rentals on the property, Keystone Cabin, the Caravan 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.

Currently, we can host up to 11 guests in our 3 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
