Outdoor wedding at Powers Creek Retreat

Venue Testimonials

"We just had our family reunion at Powers Creek and everyone loved it. All weekend long the comments on how fabulous the venue was kept pouring in. Ideal location for a large family - we were spread out enough, but still all together. So great not to have to go out or have people staying in hotels.
The pool absolutely made the weekend for our crew, lots of kids, and super hot summer weather made the days very enjoyable. Rebecca, from day 1, to the actual event, to the follow up, is amazing - always available to answer questions, and very flexible with last minute requests.
All in all, I would recommend this venue a million times over, and I know I can speak for my entire family and say that we will definitely consider coming back in the future!"

"I don't think I could ever really picture my wedding fully until the first time we went to check out Powers Creek Retreat. Immediately we knew it was exactly what we wanted. There is so much flexibility and endless possibilities to make your event exactly what you want.
We had a lot of guests coming from out of the country and from other cities so having places for people to sleep and having everyone together for the entire weekend was ideal. During the planning process Rebecca was always so fast with replies to any questions and happy to let us come and visit the venue a couple times before the big day to double check details. She was always there when we needed something, but gave us all the space we needed during the wedding.
Powers Creek really dedicated themselves to making sure our weekend was everything it could be. All our guests were blown away by the venue. They loved playing games and going in the pool. It added so much to the weekend.
What the weekend at Powers Creek really gave us that we didn't see at any other venue, was the time we really want to be able to spend with all our guests and get as many memories as possible out of our wedding. Thanks again for everything!"

"We had our wedding at Powers Creek in June of 2016 and I was very pleased with everything. Rebecca was very helpful and responsive to all my questions (and I had many!). We chose this venue because my husband wanted a camping wedding while my family was a little less sure about it. With the house, the cabins, the RV hookups, and the space to set up tents we were able to cater to many different comfort levels. Plus the dinning hall was great - we had the reception in there and it offered some peace of mind as a ceremony back-up in case it rained. I would highly recommend this beautiful venue."

"I think that Powers Creek Retreat is one of the most beautiful venues In have ever seen in both North America and the UK. I would highly recommend whether it be a wedding, anniversary corporate event. It will not disappoint!"

"I had the pleasure of attending my nieces wedding in August 2015 at Powers Creek Retreat and was amazed at how beautiful and yet functional the facility was.  The children of all ages had lots of room to run and play, there was even a fenced off swimming pool!  It was especially great for my brother-in-law (father of the bride) who was in a wheel chair at the time.  He could easily get around to visit with family and friends and take in all the activities going on.  With accommodations available right on the retreat meant he was could retire when he wanted without having to have someone leave the facility. Everything you needed was right there and very well maintained.  A good time was had by all!"

"Hello Rebecca!

I just wanted to send you an email to say thank you so much for everything! 

The Venue was perfect! The feedback from our guests was that the venue was perfect and it wasn’t just another traditional wedding! Everyone loved that they were able to roam the property, play on the lawn as well as swim in the pool and the children really loved the tree fort! 

Thank you so much for allowing us to come up and visit you as often as we did, it really means alot to a couple to be able to go and view and measure and play around with the venue prior to the event and really make sure everything they visualized will work out just fine. 

Again thank you so much for everything!!"

"I have to say we found a hidden gem in Powers Creek Retreat! With all of our family and most of the guests from different cities and provinces we were hoping to find a venue where we could spend the entire long weekend together to honor our parents’ 60th Anniversary. The Cabins, the house and the RV stalls accommodated everyone.  The separate men/women’s washrooms and shower facilities were fantastic.  The hall and kitchen provided the perfect props for the actual Anniversary Dinner and speeches.  We would also have to commend the cleanliness of the facility as it was so evident! We didn’t have to leave the grounds as we had the pool and a great selection of outdoor games throughout the day and many stories were exchanged in the evenings around the BEST fire pit I have ever seen! Our guests from near and far couldn’t believe what we found so close to the city. Thanks to the owners, Sandy and Tom for being so accommodating – you exceeded our expectations for sure.

Thanks for the amazing memories!"

"My husband and I got married at Powers Creek Retreat in June of 2014, and we would recommend the venue to anyone looking to have an outdoor wedding. We've been to other weddings and venues where the ceremony site was cramped and boring, so the huge grass field we used for the ceremony was amazing. It was such a great natural location with a beautiful view and landscaping so we didn't have to do any decorating. The reception hall was also lovely; it is bright with clean decor to suit any wedding theme. It was extremely convenient having the reception and the ceremony at the same venue, and so much prettier than a community hall or seniors' center. While we were planning I worried about the guests having nothing to do between the ceremony and the reception, but it turned out to be not a problem at all because guests were able to explore the grounds, play lawn games, and mingle and visit at the patio area where we held a cocktail hour. Overall, we were extremely happy with our choice of venue; it gave us exactly the type of wedding - relaxed yet put-together and classic - we wanted. Thanks Tom and Sandy!"

"I attended a reunion of old friends in the fall of 2014 at Powers Creek Retreat. The venue is spectacular, offering absolute privacy in a remote setting, that's only minutes from West Kelowna. Sleeping accommodations are clean, comfortable and abundant. The kitchen facility is top notch and lacks nothing. The huge fire pit area became the social hub after dark, and in my opinion is a highlight of the Powers Creek Retreat experience.
This place is amazing. I'd book it in a heartbeat if I was ever in need of a location to host a crowd."

"We got married June 21st, 2014 and used Powers Creek Retreat as our reception venue, and how perfect it was. The grounds are amazing, so well maintained and gorgeous landscaping. We hung lights throughout the trees, making it so magical with the stunning natural backdrop. The hall is perfect for any décor. It also has a huge kitchen that worked great for our caterer and bar staff and so bright and spacious for all the seating and dance floor. The cabins and camping was perfect and for our out of town guests, you are two minutes into the heart of West Kelowna, close to any major hotel. And the fire pit was a HUGE hit after dark, roasting marshmallows with our s’more station was so much fun. Everyone was over the moon about the venue; it was perfect for our wedding.
Overall, it was such a lovely place, and in a heartbeat I would recommend it to anyone!! We will be back for sure!"
