Gateway to Kootenay Lake
Overlooking the Creston Valley and Kootenay River is Wynndel, a quaint village with a wholesome, congenial lifestyle. Just minutes from exceptional bass fishing at Duck Lake – and very scenic ice-skating come winter – and the Kuskanook marina at the south end of Kootenay Lake, Wynndel is a perfect haven for lake lovers of all ages.
The rich soil in the flats supports a variety of agriculture, as well as providing an ideal setting for the Wynnwood Cellars Estate Winery. Agriculture – and specifically, the need for boxes and crates for locally-grown fruit – was the inspiration for the historic Wynndel Box & Lumber company (now Wynnwood), providing quality niche forest products. Our community is also home to many talented artists and artisans, with studios and galleries welcoming visitors. The Wynndel Community Hall is available for weddings, dances and reunions.
