Summer Memories at The Cove Lakeside Resort

Article re-posted from Parks & Wild:


Summer, sweet sweet summer. And nothing says summer in BC more than a trip to the beautiful Okanagan. As most of us stayed pretty close to home this summer, there was no way we were missing out on a trip to Kelowna... especially when it included an amazing stay at The Cove Lakeside Resort. This place is honestly THE BEST! 

You may remember a little trip we took to West Kelowna last December. We stayed at The Cove, took selfies with Santa, brunched, visited a few of the local wineries & went ice skating. It was perfectly magical & we loved every minute of it. BUT, as soon as Parker saw the pools and waterslide outside, we knew we’d have to make a summer trip to take FULL advantage of everything The Cove Lakeside Resort has to offer. And let me tell you, it definitely did not disappoint! 

Our beautiful premium lake view suite was equipped with a full kitchen, washer & dryer and the most amazing patio. With a stunning view of Okanagan Lake & also the pools, we were just steps away from the private beach or hitting up the waterslide! 



And we were all in when it came to the pools! Parker is our little fishy and could not be happier to finally get to test out the pools.... he’d literally been waiting for it since December!!! Whether you want to just lounge around the beautiful lake side pool or hit the waterslide and make waves with the kiddos, this place has it all! There were plenty of Covid safety measures in place so we felt super comfortable and knew everything was being cleaned and sanitized after every user & capacity maximums were always maintained. It gave us such peace of mind and really allowed us to fully enjoy our vacation.


Although some amenities were closed due to Covid, this resort really does have everything. Complimentary wifi & parking, an onsite restaurant, fitness centre, movie theatre room, putting green, spa, tennis court, fire pits, bike & water sport rentals & so much more. You can even bring your furry friend along to this pet friendly resort! 

We got the chance to hit the lake on a waverunner from LakeSurf, which is located at The Cove’s marina, right along their own private beach. It was Parker’s first time on one & he had a blast! Whether you are looking for kayaks, paddle boards or motorized rentals, I would definitely recommend checking out LakeSurf Okanagan


We made incredible memories this summer thanks to The Cove Lakeside Resort. Even in the middle of a pandemic, we were able to have the most amazing, safe, family vacation together & this will definitely be a place we will continue to visit for years to come.... who needs to hop on a plane to a sunny destination when you are just a drive away from the most perfect paradise?! Thank you so much to The Cove Lakeside Resort hosting us again & for another truly unforgettable stay.
