Rocky Mountain Luxury Getaway
Nestled between British Columbia’s Purcell Mountains and the Canadian Rockies, Northstar Mountain Village Resort remains a hidden gem in terms of value for your dollar.
Spacious 2 & 3 bedroom homes are fully furnished with exposed log beams and rock accents, private outdoor hot tub & BBQ on every deck, gourmet kitchens, and fireplaces.
This summer, the resort is offering 5 and 7 night specials in a 2 bedroom luxury unit from $991, taxes additional.
The Kimberley Nature Park, located right on the mountain, boasts over 100 km of hiking and biking trails suited for varying degrees of expertise.
If you are seeking a more challenging hike, day trips are available to Tipi Mountain, Mount Stevens, and Fisher Peak – Kimberley’s signature landmark.
Also new this summer, are 30km of freshly converted “rails to trails” bike paths with excellent views of the Rockies one direction and the Purcell Mountains, the other. From here, you’ll cross St Mary’s River with stunning views from the trestle above.
Other low cost activity options include visiting the natural hot springs at Lussier with 3 natural pools nestled against a cold mountain river – a picture perfect setting that could easily be a postcard for BC’s natural wonders.
If you’re looking for more water activities, there are various lakes within a 45 minute drive. One of the world’s largest wetlands is north of here and ideal for kayaking and bird watching. It’s not uncommon to see deer and other wildlife hanging out in and around Northstar.
If golf is your sport, there are 7 championship courses within 30 minutes, 3 within 15 minutes of the resort. Trickle Creek, Bootleg Gap, and the Kimberley Golf Club each offer incredible mountain scenery and a new challenge each day.
If you prefer something more exhilarating, try white water rafting on one of the 3 area mountain fed rivers. For fishing enthusiasts, there are excellent fly fishing and lake excursions nearby.
Peacefulness and relaxation is integral to your stay at Northstar. The outdoor swimming pool and hot tub make for a great place to cozy up to a book or indulge in some vitamin D. The onsite spa offers various treatments and yoga. Perhaps it is time for some pampering or a new venue for your annual group getaway!
Getting here couldn’t be easier. The Canadian Rockies International Airport (YXC) lands you 22 minutes from the door. Air Canada and Pacific Coastal offer daily service from Calgary or Vancouver. On a clear day it can be one of the most scenic flights you have ever experienced.
Arriving by car is a pleasant drive via highway 93 through Kootenay National Park, or from the south on highway 3 and 95A. Either route offers wildlife sightings and glorious mountain scenery.
Whether it is a special romantic getaway or a reunion with family or friends, Northstar Mountain Village provides an ideal combination of quality accommodation, ample amenities, and a playground of outdoor activities. For July and August, the summer 5 and 7 day rates are exceptional.
