Explore your Happy Place this Fall

Island Lake Spa offers adventure and relaxation in the heart of Fernie

Often negatively coined as the “quiet” or “shoulder season,” the month of September (and October too for that matter) has been fighting back against its bad reputation.

September brings fall colours, warm days, and clear, brisk evenings. Not to mention the seemingly endless blue skies, low-season rates and fewer crowds. And if you ask the locals — the hiking and mountain biking trails are on point.

So maybe we shouldn’t have given away the secret, but if you haven’t experienced fall in the Rockies, you are missing out!

Life is busy; you deserve some time in a day spa! Located just outside of Fernie, B.C., the Island Lake Spa is built to promote relaxation, renewal and rejuvenation. Replenish your health and awaken the senses!

Spa Special: book two spa treatments, get 15% off both treatments – Must be one-hour treatments and booked for the same person on the same day.

Special Thanksgiving Dinner

Around harvest time and Thanksgiving, everyone loves a good turkey dinner shared with friends and family. This year, the creative culinary team at Island Lake Lodge is planning a very special four-course harvest Thanksgiving dinner using pumpkin/squash, turkey, apples/pears, sage, cheese and some local foraged items. Help give thanks to the end of another wonderful summer season and fall harvest.

First course: Spiced pumpkin veloute, smoked fennel

Second: Grilled kale salad, honeyed carrot crisps, oka cheese

Third: ‘Two-way turkey’ sage roasted breast, confit leg, sweet potato gratin

Fourth: Chocolate souffle, poached pear

The four-course wine pairing will feature the Island Lake Lodge private label 3 Bears wines and also highlight Naramata’s La Frenz Winery

Adults $99 (including four wine pairings), children $39 (under 12)

Why drive home after filling yourself with such delicious food? Stay the night for just $129 per room (plus tax and based on double occupancy).

This very special dinner and final evening of the season will take place on Sunday, Oct. 8.
