Nestled on the east shore of beautiful Kootenay Lake, Destiny Bay Resort offers a blend of solitude and companionship.  Spend a lazy hour or two bird watching from the deck of your private cottage, listening to the waves lapping at the pebbled beach or watching the sun disappear behind splendid dark mountains.

The resort has canoes and paddle boats for the use of the guests.  The resort’s private gradually sloping beach area provides hours of enjoyment for swimming, sun-bathing or just lounging around.  A log house beach sauna, an enclosed fire pit and garden chess also add to your enjoyment.
