September might be our favourite month…

We all love summer РI think we can agree on that. After the heat of July and August comes beautiful September though.  Sometimes underrated and overlooked as a time to get away, this last month of summer (Fall officially starts on Sept 22nd) has become our favourite month. Here are a few reasons:

  • The days are still warm and somewhat long and the nights are cool… to help one sleep (I know I sleep better on cool nights)
  • The summer crowds have dissipated a bit. The young ones are back in school and things tend to slow down a bit past Labour Day
  • The fall colours are showing themselves. A great time for photos!
  • The wildfire season has dissipated and the skies are clear. The clean crisp September air is great for activities
  • It’s harvest time! Local produce is at its best for many items
  • The trails are in good shape for both hiking and biking

A few extra things to look forward to this September at Island Lake!

  • We have some great spa specials on! Have a look here
  • Our Summer Accommodation Packages are still available
  • We have a couple scheduled guided hikes – Lizard Lake and Heiko’s Trail¬†
  • There is a Beer Makers Dinner on September 27th. Join us for a 4 course meal paired with 4 beers from our partners Fernie Brewing Company. Details here
  • Though it’s in October… we will be having a special “Island Lake style” Thanksgiving Dinner on October 7th. 4 courses including wine for $99. Stay the night! Starting at just $129
