Serenity Views is located in the Kootenays on the shores of the Arrow Lakes with breathtaking views of the lake and mountains and close to two Hot Springs facilities which are open year-round. Serenity Views is a unique lodging and recreation facility catering to those who seek a secluded retreat, as well as to those wanting easy access to all amenities. It is designed to meet the needs of most travellers by providing excellent lodging, friendly service, and an enriching experience with long lasting wellness benefits.

It has a fully equipped kitchen, wireless Internet and cable television and sleeps 4 persons. There is access to outdoor living, pathways, and lakeside recreation. Our guests have privacy and the sense of freedom to enjoy the area in their own personal way.
The magnificent natural location provides an ideal setting for outdoor living whether you want to relax, meditate, paint, or just watch the changing moods and colors of the mountains and lake. A paradise for bird watchers and photographers, the area is rich in wildlife with osprey, eagles, a variety of waterfowl, woodpeckers and deer.
Serenity Views is located just 5 minutes from the Village of Nakusp with all amenities. From our property, take a beautiful 15 minute drive up a paved mountain highway to Nakusp Hot Springs or drive to Halycon Hot Springs, just 20 minutes away. Wherever you go, the scenery is magnificent and people are friendly.
In summer, enjoy wonderful hiking, boating, fishing, golf and swimming. The beautiful sandy public beach is only 5 minutes away. From here enjoy a stroll down the promenade along the lake, just a block from shopping and restaurants. There is also a public boat launch and docks if you bring your power boat.

In the winter, enjoy snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country, downhill, and heli-skiing followed by a soak in the Hot Springs, or just come for the health benefits of enjoying the Hot Springs along with the peaceful and friendly atmosphere.
Fishing in the Arrow Lakes is great in all seasons - winter fishing is spectacular and fishing charters can be booked locally.
