Whether you live here, or are planning a visit to the Okanagan, the Cove Lakeside is a must see/must stay kind of resort.
Nestled on the shores of Lake Okanagan, the Cove is located in West Kelowna, just off Hwy. 97. Known as a four seasons playground, the Okanagan is the perfect place for a mini-staycation or a full blown vacation.
In the winter, Telemark cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are available 15 minutes from the affordable resort with Crystal Mountain Ski Resort 20 minutes away. There are several other ski hills in the area including Apex, Big White and Silver Star.
Dozens of wineries are within minutes of the Cove and most are open for tastings and tours year round.
For the other three seasons there is fishing, nature walks, hiking, biking and golf on several premier courses nearby.
Come the summer there is no better place to stay than the Cove Lakeside Resort. Swim in the heated pool, laze around in the hot tub, zip down the waterslide, or take just a few extra steps and you are on the beach. There is a dog park nearby where even the pups can go for a swim. The Gellatly Nut Farm is located right beside the resort, for a lazy afternoon of strolling through the trees.
The Cove also has its own marina conveniently located minutes from fueling up facilities and approximately 15 minutes from downtown Kelowna. You can come over by boat, or bring your boat and dock it here. The Cove Marina has 50 slips within the basin and five mooring buoys. Just coming over for a meal at the Bonfire or a treat at the Spa? The Cove Marina offers complimentary daytime moorage around the exterior of the marina. There are watersports, rentals and activities as well through okanaganwatersports.com.
