I have just returned from a wonderful relaxing trip to the Silverton/New Denver area with two girl friends to attend the Annual Garlic Festival. First, although a long drive from Vancouver, it was a lovely trip taking the lower route through Osoyoos to Castlegar and then north to New Denver. September is a perfect time to travel with few cars on the road.
The Silverton Resort, nestled on the shore of Slocan Lake was not only a treat, but a fantastic, special surprise. We had an impecably clean and wonderfully appointed log cabin with a deck overlooking the most astonishing body of water with a magnificent backdrop of mountains and forests. The most amazing part to me was that there were no power boats, only canoes and kayaks and the serenity of the location was unbelievable. Everyone at the Resort was so friendly and helpful - we even picked a few apples, pears and plums off a tree on the property and made a fruit dessert. I honestly can't think of a better place to unwind and renew oneself. We did peek into the other cabins and I decided it would be the perfect place for a large family reunion. Each family could have their own cabin and privacy, the kitchen facilities were great and BBQ's were available. It was a great beach with canoes and kayaks were available for rent.
In addition there are 2 cute towns, Silverton and New Denver, with a few great stores and places to eat. We enjoyed the local market in Silverton on Friday with its unbelievable produce and home baked goods. On Sunday we attended the annual Garlic Festival which attracts hundreds of people from great distances. It was a wonderfully fun experience with some of the friendliest people I have ever met. I truly felt so relaxed and at home in this newly discovered, hidden gem, area of BC. and I can't wait to return!
