No matter what time of year, Whatshan Lake Retreat is a great meeting place for large groups, friends and family.

World Class Sound Stage

Our retreat is located in southeastern British Columbia, nestled in the Monashee mountains next to Whatshan Lake. We are just minutes away from the community of Edgewood.

The Retreat Centre Lodge offers full facilities for Corporate Retreats, seminars, workshops, family gatherings, weddings, concerts, and youth activities. Our acoustically engineered stage is perfect for music festivals and playing sessions under the stars.

At Whatshan you can get away from it all to enjoy quiet peaceful walks and moments of contemplation. Paddle your canoe or kayak on the lake or plunge into bracing cool waters of the swimming hole in the nearby river.

One of the largest events of the year is the Whatshan Jam, a family and friends music festival that presents exceptional musicians and activities in an atmosphere geared towards all ages for all people. We are sad to announce that we will be postponing until 2023 due to the COVID pandemic uncertainty. It will be our 20th anniversary the next time we meet and we want to deliver the best possible experience.  Those that held their tickets/deposit over can still do so or request a refund by contacting our staff via email at whatshanjam @ gmail.com or by using this contact form. Please refer to the festival website for up-to-date information.

In the winter bring your snowshoes and skis and trek through our over 200 acres of wilderness and beyond and then warm everyone up with some hot chocolate in one of our modern cabins.
