Your Hosts

Everyone is welcome at Paradise Valley Lodge.

We enjoy providing exceptional hospitality and helping our guests to have a great Canadian experience in the Kootenays of British Columbia.

We live in a separate house and studio on the property. We know the local area very well and are happy to provide you with maps, brochures and advice.
