Breathtaking expanses of untamed forests excite the senses as you travel through interior BC, and when the day draws to a close, you’ll take comfort in the knowledge that the Shuswap region offers an array of accommodation options to lull you into a dreamy slumber.
Types of Accommodation in the Shuswap
Travel accommodations come in all shapes and sizes — literally. In this article, we will provide you with a brief outline of Shuswap’s accommodation types as well as a few recommendations for each one.
Quaaout Lodge & Spa at Talking Rock Golf Resort
Nestled in the quaint town of Chase, BC, Quaaout Lodge & Spa has perfected the fusion of an unadulterated landscape and modern conveniences. Our rustic-inspired lodge caters to everyone, including large groups — inter-connecting rooms are available — those with disabilities, and even furry friends. Meanwhile, the picturesque backdrop complements on-site amenities such as those found below:
- Golf Course
- Conference Centre
- Jack Sam’s Restaurant & Lounge
Sometimes, you just want to stay somewhere with no surprises. In this case, Prestige Harbourfront Resort, Hilltop Inn, Sun Peaks Grand Hotel offer their guests clean and spacious rooms in addition to the standard amenities (e.g., Wi-Fi, television, etc.) that most guests expect.
In a region where pristine lakes and rivers abound, you may not be satisfied by simply spending your nights adjacent to such waters. This is where Bluewater House Boats, Twin Anchors Houseboat Vacations, and Waterway Houseboat come into play. Each company offers packages of floating accommodations to suit most adventurists, from solo travelers to large groups.
Vacation rentals offer the best of both worlds — an excursion to another land while enjoying the privacy and amenities that you have at home. This accommodation type is something that Bear Country has mastered. This Sun Peaks based company offers everything from modest condos to luxurious houses.
WHat is the difference between a motel and a hotel? It basically boils down to the manner in which you enter your room. Hotels offer indoor hallways while motels allow you to gain access to your room from the outside, which is great for those who have quite a bit of luggage as you can often park your vehicle within just a few feet of the door.
Now that we have clarified that, let’s get to the part where we mention actual locations. Jade Mountain Motel, with its a-frame, is a nice option for those that are looking for that mom-and-pop quality, while Motel Happy Salmon is an inexpensive and cheerful option for those on a budget.
For those that don’t like to share a wall with other guests, the Shuswap region offers a bevy of campsites, such as Family Tree Riverside RV and Campground, Sicamous KOA, and Chimney Rock Resort & Campground. So, get ready to roast some s’mores before you succumb to a melatonin-induced mini-hibernation.
