Cradled along the Okanagan Lake in West Kelowna sheltered from the din of summer traffic, The Cove Lakeside Resort is an ideal headquarters for your vacation or staycation. Sitting on the beach, by the pool or on Bonfire Restaurant’s waterfront patio it’s easy to relax entranced by the lovely gardens, shimmering waters and vineyard-lined hills beyond. To revitalize your mind and body even more there’s The Spa at The Cove onsite. How perfect after a day of wine touring, fun in the Okanagan sun, or a sailing expedition from The Cove Marina. To put an exclamation on that perfect day, let executive chef Brian Fowke and his amazing team at Bonfire Restaurant tantalize your taste buds. Talk about showcasing locally inspired specialties; the cuisine here features local farmers, produce growers, and suppliers as well as freshly grown items from its own Bonfire’s Culinary Garden kitty-corner to the hotel entrance. The multi-award winning Chef Fowke complements all those intense and fresh flavours with an extensive wine list. You’ll find international labels balanced with a list that shines the light on Okanagan wines produced by world-class operations to family-run vineyards. There’s a full beverage menu, too, including selections of local spirits and craft beer. For features such as the Prix Fixe Menu of three courses paired with local wine, available Monday to Wednesday, or special garden dinners visit This bit of paradise is loved by visitors and locals.
