When we hear the words ‘winter is coming’ it is usually everyone’s cue to run inside, hide away, and count down the days until summer. Companies, families, and event planners typically wait until warmer months to start planning getaways and times to gather. Here at Quaaout Lodge, we are challenging that – let this winter be the winter you remove distractions, getaway, and create the perfect special event for your business, your family, or your team in the interior of BC.
Quaaout Lodge offers all the amenities you need to create your dream event – it’s what we do! From your corporate retreat to your special milestone event, being located on the stunning shores of Little Shuswap Lake, our lodge can make your winter getaway special and unexpected.
We love seeing you in the summer but winter in Chase, BC is beautiful; and it is the perfect time to experience our tranquil mountain sanctuary. Our gracious hospitality, the shimmering waters of Little Shuswap Lake, and our traditional Indigenous architecture set an unforgettable backdrop for your special winter event. From intimate family affairs to large, formal celebrations, we specialize in creating signature events by the lake.
Creating remarkable experiences is what we do best! Let us help you plan and think of every detail for your special event – from welcoming your guests with a sunset cocktail reception to allowing us to arrange for a day at our spa. Treat your guests to our Secwepemc Storytelling experience, outdoor guided adventure, or a delectable dining experience prepared by our award-winning culinary team.
Be inspired! Plan your own unique corporate retreat or event
Have we piqued your interest? Are you starting to think less of hibernating this winter and more about getting out and experiencing something new? Whether you are an annual Quaaout Lodge visitor, or this is your first time we want you to be inspired to plan your special winter event.
It’s time to brainstorm what you could organize over the cooler months to spark some energy in your family, friends, colleagues, and teams. Check out our ideas for things to do around Chase, BC:
- Business Meetings – you’ve been connecting remotely for nearly two years, and we know you miss collaborating with your colleagues in person. We can help you plan a productive and comfortable business meeting in our meeting room spaces.
- Girls’ Weekend – you’ve been homeschooling, working remotely, juggling constantly changing rules and regulations and we know you need time off. Let’s work together to plan a yoga retreat, spa weekend, or just a fun bed and breakfast experience (reminiscent of those sleepovers from when you were a teenager!). We have lots of packages to make your weekend the perfect escape!
- Team Building and Corporate Retreat – are you as tired as we are of the typical facilitated team building event? Come to Quaaout Lodge and we can help you get the team outdoors experiencing our hiking trails. We can help you plan a snowshoe adventure, early winter season biking, or an outdoor cultural experience that everyone will remember. Then we can work together to ensure the team comes back together in our comfortable and welcoming event space to strategic plan, get organized, and plan out your new year. We help your business work hard and play hard with a corporate retreat experience.
- Family Winter Vacation – we know you love bringing your family here in the summer so surprise them with a winter weekend getaway to recharge this winter too. Your family will love skipping the dishes and having our culinary team prepare a fantastic meal that everyone will love, mom will love the spa experience, the kids will love time in pool, and the whole family can learn something new when participating in our Kekuli Storytelling package where you get to imagine what it would feel like to live in a “Kekuli” or pit-house, the traditional winter home of the Secwepemc people. You’ll listen to stories around a fire of how our people lived before Europeans arrived up to the modern day.
- Your Special Event – Quaaout Lodge is perfect for unique banquets, conventions, conferences, and meetings of up to 200 guests; you’ll enjoy gracious, personalized service, superb presentation, and extraordinary attention to detail. From the early planning through to the final meeting, each event is tailored to your expectations by experienced meeting professionals. Let’s be honest – everyone is looking for an excuse to escape the home office this winter – this is your chance!
