THE WEST ARM
The West Arm of Kootenay Lake is situated entirely within the Selkirk mountains. It is both narrower and shallower than the main lake and surprisingly has numerous sandy beaches.
We have three different suites for accommodation .
We completed three sports courts for the enjoyment of our guests ; a golf chipping / putting green , a badminton / pickle ball court and a basket ball court and added to our orchard and garden area .

The West Kootenay's Region of British Columbia has been referred to as the "Ultimate Outdoor Sportsman Playground". This diverse region of water and mountains is an outdoor enthusiasts "dream come true". The area is internationally renowned for its fishing, golfing and hunting.
A panoramic view of the west arm greets the Kootenay Wild Facility. We are situated between the village of Balfour and the City of Nelson in the Grand View Developments property. We are ideally situated less than a 110 km drive from 6/8 Kootenay Trail golf courses.
