Local business featured in TV show

At Kw’o:k’we:hala eco retreat B&B chosen for the premier of My Retreat

At Kw’o:kw’e:hala eco retreat B&B will be featured in a new TV series called My Retreat.

“We were flattered our retreat B&B was chosen for the premier of this exciting new show,” said owner Sue VandeVelde-Savola. “This is a great way to celebrate our tenth year. Being eco-friendly has increased in popularity since our beginnings 10 years ago, and as we are located only two hours from Vancouver with no ferries or planes, this an easy retreat for local and for international travellers.”

At Kw’o:kw’e:hala eco retreat B&B (pronounced Coquihalla) provides an interesting and unique destination within Hope and the surrounding Vancouver Coast and Mountains tourism community of British Columbia. Cabin rates start at $105 per night with a season that runs from May 1 to Oct. 1 annually.

“With a philosophy of living lightly on the earth, getting-away At Kw’o:k’we:hala eco retreat B&B provides many ways to relax and refresh…nourish oneself from the large organic gardens, sooth oneself in the wood-fired hot tub and sauna, energize oneself with a cycle on the Kettle Valley rail trails or on local hiking trails,” said VandeVelde-Savola.

My Retreat premiers today (Sept. 5) and will air regularly on Cottage Life TV on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m.
