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. Our newest rental is in the works and will be available this spring!

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. Please Consider donating to The New Relationship Trust, a dedicated and responsive organization providing funding opportunities to First Nation communities to support them in building powerful and resilient communities on their own terms.
