Living off-grid has it's advantages. It also comes with challenges!
Eitherway our team was up for the challenge. We installed an array of solar panels during our initial build. In 2022, these solar panels were upgraded for newer, more efficient panels which you will see outside the front of our lodge. We harness the power of the sun to keep the lights on at the lodge. We also use micro-hydro generators to top up that power generation. It is cool what you can achieve when there are no other options!
As a part of keeping things fresh and healthy, our culinary team at Keefer Lake Lodge has developed a microgreen program. They plant and harvest all season long. We have special growing chambers, lighting equipment and hydrology to grow this tasty morsels.
Keefer Shops Local
This is a big value of Keefer Lake Lodge. We are surrounded by small, rural communities and within these communities there is a plethora of small businesses creating all sorts of goods and services. Our sheets are made from 100% organic alpaca bedding, made locally by Crescent Moon Duvet & Pillow Company. Our soaps are made locally by Back to Earth. We hire local services providers from machine operators to our bookkeeping, right here in the valley. Even our fleet of demo skis are handcrafted locally by Skevik Skis!
You don't have to go far to find a great local brew or a tantalizing Okanagan Wine. The majority of our beers on tap are from the Okanagan Valley with a few from other parts of BC. Our cellar is stocked with a healthy selection of Okangan wines and spirits as well. Of course we do have a selection that is from elsewhere but we like to keep it local! Even our coffee is Cherryhill from Kelowna BC. Fresh is best right?!
