We’ll be the first to admit that there’s something magical about cozying up by the fire with some hot chocolate, with a winter wonderland just steps away from you. For our feature rental this week, we’ve found an incredible BC resort just outside of Salmon Arm, that is the perfect home base for making the most of the winter months!
Tin Poppy Retreat is a resort tucked away in the Larch Hills, located pretty much at the midway point between the Shuswap and the Okanagan. Featuring only 4 cabins but sitting on 160 acres of private land, it’s the perfect place to unwind with that special someone, family, or friends.
The cabins here can sleep anywhere from 4 to 12 guests at a time, and range from $150 to $225 a night. So, even if you’re just heading there for a couple’s retreat, you’re still getting an amazing deal. Especially since the amenities range from BBQs to gas fireplaces to wood-fired saunas. Keep in mind though that some of the more basic options don’t have electricity or running water, so those are for the more rugged nature lovers.
As for amenities, guests can enjoy everything from nearby cross country trails to day trips to ski resorts (SilverStar is just an hour away) to fireside board games. The best part though? The private walking/snowshoe trails that let you explore the resort in full, taking you through forests, around lakes and more.
While the namesake Tin Poppy Cabin is closed until March, the other 3 spots still have some availability left! If you’re looking for an incredible trip to enjoy nature over the next few months, make sure to keep this destination in mind.
