“Feel the Spirit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2011

Quaaout Lodge is one of my favorite spots out of the many places my world travels have taken me. The Native artifacts on display, the exquisite carvings and the lobby's welcoming fire pit all let you truly feel the spirt of the people. The food is delicious and is beautifully presented and the rooms are just lovely. Top all that off with the friendly and efficient staff
and it made for a wonderful stay!. Evelyn G.

Thank you for your review. It is always a pleasure to welcome our repeat guests back to the Quaaout. Whether for business or pleasure, or a little of both.

Since our renovations in 2010 we have been receiving some very positive feedback from clients like you. We are not ready to rest on our past successes though... with the 20th Anniversary of the opening of the Quaaout Lodge we are planning some great events for 2012. We are also making some new operational changes with additional staff training, menu planning, and other steps to improve our service levels.

For those like yourself who appreciate the displays of local culture and carvings, the lodge is currently undergoing some fascinating changes to our exterior thanks to the talents of a local artisan.

With the Holiday Season upon us this is also a great time to think about some special gifts for those important people in your life... gift certificates are a great option, and if you are in the area, the Little Bear Gift Shop is open daily from 10am to 3pm for anyone looking for some wonderful First Nations artwork and other gifts. We also have the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band cultural group setup here in the Quaaout Lodge with hand-made crafts and artwork for sale during Sunday Brunch from 10am to 2pm each Sunday before Christmas.

Thank you again for sharing your Quaaout Experience with others, and on behalf of all of us here at the resort, I look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Warm regards;

I had never heard of Quaaout Lodge before I was hired to perform in their dinner theatre in November, and I'm sure glad I know about it now. The building is beautiful and all the rooms had a nice view. I especially enjoyed the huge fireplace in the lobby where you could pull up a chair and read, chat, and watch the world roll by through the big bay windows. Strolling around the grounds was great - there are remnants of First Nations dwellings scattered about, and the shore of the lake was a lovely place to wander. I really enjoyed the food in the restaurant, though I found the service to be on the slow side. The Sunday brunch was particularly fantastic. The staff were all very warm and friendly. Overall I think that Quaaout Lodge is an incredible find and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in a vacation or romantic getaway at any time of year.

Thank you for sharing your Quaaout Lodge discovery with other travelers. It sounds like you were able to take some time to enjoy this little patch of beauty and history in the Shuswap. This is a great benefit of having the time to stay for a few days even if on business... you can take a little time to unwind from the everyday demands and simply relax and enjoy the peaceful setting.

While summer in the Shuswap is definitely prime time, winter offers a great opportunity to enjoy the beautiful, casual, and down to earth nature of the region.

I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed the food served here at the Quaaout Lodge, and would like to take this opportunity to let everyone know that we have just released our new seasonal menus. Our kitchen and dining room teams have put in a lot of effort in planning our new menus to offer the great selection of quality selections balanced with a design that will improve the timeliness with which the kitchen can deliver on orders. We are also very pleased to have someone on staff with professional European fine dining training who is working one-on-one with each of our servers to further develop their skills in providing one of the Shuswap's finest dining experiences.

Dinner theatre this past November was a wonderful experience for past patrons and new clients alike. We must extend our thanks to you and the rest of the Jump! production team for bringing a fantastic world-class show to our area. On behalf of all of us here at the the Quaaout, I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back again soon.

Thank you;

Thoroughly enjoyed a fantastic dinner theater evening at Quaaout Lodge this past weekend. The show, "Jump" put on by Diane Lines was excellent, as was the delicious dinner. Very comfortable room, beautiful surroundings, awesome brunch and to top it all off...wonderfully relaxing spa treatment. Friendly staff, great food, amazing entertainment...who could ask for anything more? Cannot wait to go back!!!

My husband & I decided to do an impromptu getaway for the weekend and found Quaaout Lodge was having their opening gala for a dinner/theatre this past Nov. 4th.

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived; simply unique, classy and tranquil. We thoroughly loved the overall quality of the room, furniture and linens, etc. Recommend the deluxe room with King bed, lake front jacuzzi w/ a fireplace. We can't wait to escape again soon!

I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your getaway here at the Quaaout Lodge. The opening night of our 2011 Dinner Theatre show Jump! featuring Diane Lines was a great success and we have been receiving great reviews from this show which runs until November 20th.

Fall & Winter area great time for a nice romantic getaway... with great rates on even our premier rooms such as our Jacuzzi King rooms which feature an in-room jacuzzi tub overlooking Little Shuswap Lake.

Thank you for your feedback, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Quaaout Lodge again soon.

It is good to hear from one of our business travelers who make the Quaaout Lodge their home for a night or two while on the road. With our location roughly midway between Calgary and Vancouver, just 40 mins to Salmon Arm or 45mins to Kamloops, we are pleased to provide a nice spot for the weary traveler to stop and have a little retreat. We may only be 5 minutes off the Trans-Canada Highway #1 but it will feel like a different world once you check-in.

While everyone deserves a break from the hectic demands of work, whether you are here on business or need to keep in touch with the outside world, our free wireless internet service throughout the hotel and conference center allows you to keep in touch as much as you choose. In addition to free Wi-Fi, each guest room has a data port on the desk as an alternative internet connectivity option. We are also able to offer printing, fax, and guest access internet terminals, and look forward to the future addition of a dedicated business center in the not too distant future.

Regarding one of your room tips... while you have the comfort and feel of down (and you are among many who thick our pillows and duvets are down), there is not a feather to be found! All of our bedding is hypo-allergenic, and in keeping with our efforts to lessen our environmental impact our housekeeping and laundry department uses eco-friendly products wherever possible. For clients with particular sensitivities, let us know when you book, and we will do our best to ensure that you have a worry-free rest.

We do also have 8 designated pet friendly rooms - all conveniently located on the ground floor with walk-out patios. While our housekeepers do a very thorough job of cleaning, if you have a sensitivity to pets please let us know when you book so that we may ensure that you are not booked into one of these rooms.

We look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back the next time you are traveling in the Shuswap.

After some surgery this spring, I spent three weeks in September at the Quaaout Lodge focused on getting healthier. The staff couldn't have been more supportive. The meals were excellent (and healthy, tailored to my needs), the presentation exquisite. The deluxe king room was very comfortable and spacious enough for a long stay; the housekeeping staff was always attentive. The grounds were beautiful for walking -- along the beach or the golf course. And the newly opened spa provided experiences that were relaxing and restorative! I couldn't have been more pleased with my results.

I live in Florida, flew to Kelowna, and chose not to rent a car. However, a vehicle would be a plus to explore the lovely Shuswap area.

Room Tip: Lakeview is breathtaking!

Thank you for posting your review of your retreat here at the Quaaout Lodge. It is always a pleasure when we have guests for longer stays where we have the opportunity to get to know you.

With the recent addition of Le7Ke Spa to our resort and the new health and wellness programs that we are now able to offer, we are looking forward to welcoming other visitors for retreats from a weekend getaway to two or three week programs developed by our Spa Director. There are several different programs in the planning stages right now including healthy weight loss, smoking cessation, detox, and cancer coaching.

This is a beautiful region to explore, but being a rural area public transportation is not available. We do offer a shuttle service upon request to different destinations including the Kamloops and Kelowna airports at rates comparable to commercial shuttle services, guests staying for a longer period of time would benefit from having a car to explore at their leisure.

I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future.
