Stowel Lake Farm is an established organic farm
located in the south end of Salt Spring Island.
The accommodation on Stowel Lake Farm is
comfortable and charming. Most of the rooms sleep two people with a few that sleep three people. The Gatehouse, the yoga and meditation space, has
large windows that allow panoramic views of the
stunning farm and natural environment. The
building itself is warm, light and beautifully
handcrafted by local woodworkers.

The staff at Stowel lake work with several experienced and talented
caterers to provide delicious and healthy meals for
retreats. The emphasis is fresh, organic and locally
produced food infused with LOVE. Vegetables grown
on the farm is used whenever possible.
Where do we eat? The Barn!
The Barn, a post and beam structure, was built in the early 1970’s using Douglas fir trees from the property. It was first used as a sheep barn and housed over 100 ewes (the sheep have left).
