Tara shanti was a wonderful place to stay, Maggie was very friendly and went above and beyond to accommodate us. I would recommend this property to anyone. It was quiet and private but also let you get to know other guests if you wished to. Their was a lot of smoke due to fires but otherwise their view is breathtaking. Very close to all amenities and some top fantastic restaurants.

Tara Shanti is a beautiful log retreat centre in a rustic location. It super well run by Maggie and Gordon. We only got to meet Maggie, as Gordon was away, but she was friendly, thoughtful, and always available to help but gave us our privacy once we settled in. Breakfast at Tarra Shanti was superb. Some visitors might find taking the ferry over a little inconvenient. We loved it. It was quite reliable and ended up being on our when when there was snow up at the Salmo-Creston Pass. Great stay and great experience. Thanks Maggie
