Staycations That Will Have You Feeling Like You’re A Million Miles Away
September marks the end of summer and demands routines and tight schedules again. It’s one crazy, busy month. We know that it’s no easy task to just pack up and jet off to a week-long holiday, especially when we are just getting back on track, which is why a short staycation is the perfect solution…A restful mini getaway will have you going strong for the next few months.
True Key Hotels & Resorts has a handful of gorgeous resorts with something for everyone. Take your pick from soothing lakeshore walks to panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains.
Located in Radium Hot Springs, Big-horn got its name due to the abundant number of big-horn animals that roam the area. From sheep to goats, it’s wildlife viewing at its finest. As we approach winter, these magnificent animals start to congregate in larger numbers and ‘headbang’. The rutting action has become so popular that an entire festival was created for it! It’s become iconic and you can witness the phenomenon right at our resort.
Or soak in the fresh air and escape to one of our surrounding ski hills, skating areas, snowmobile trails, and hiking trails. Whatever excursion you choose, you can bank on a cozy fall evening, complete with a hot cup of cocoa and the warmth of the fireplace toasting your toes. Only a 3-hour drive from Calgary and 2 to 2.5 hours from Vancouver (1 to 1.5 hour flight and 1 hr drive from Cranbrook)

Harrison Beach Hotel
Harrison Lake is beautiful any time of year.

It’s about slowing down and enjoying the ‘hike, bike, and paddle’ experiences with forest hiking trails, countryside biking, and scenic kayaking. In fact, the salmon run starts soon, inviting tens of thousands of bald eagles. And, the hot springs will have you recharging in healing goodness. Choose a lakefront room, grab your favourite book, and soak it all in.

Sooke Harbour Resort & Marina
5-star fishing, golfing, wildlife and whale-watching tours, kayaking, beachcombing, and year-round hiking are at the core of a Sooke stay. Diverse natural appeal surrounds Sooke Harbour Resort & Marina. The community has small-town charm, and friendly breweries and eateries. It’s a place ‘where everyone knows your name’. Even as a tourist, locals love to have conversation and, by the end of the night, you’ll be leaving with a handful of new friends’ phone numbers and following them on social.
In the fall, the salmon return to Sooke Basin from their 4 to 5 year ocean journey, spawning in local streams. Just like in Harrison, the eagles come to feast on the salmon. You’ll see thousands of migratory birds, such as eagles and heron.
