You heard it through the grapevine that a luxury resort has finally opened in the Columbia Valley, but it'll take more than a rumour to make you a believer. Revel in today’s Kootenay Valley escape, and there won't be a trace of doubt in your mind: spend one night in a one-bedroom suite at Invermere's brand new Copper Point Resort, a 3.5-hour drive from Calgary, for $130.

You'll awake to a shoo-be-doo-be-doo-da day on a spectacular golf course set between the Purcell and Rocky mountain ranges, offering the perfect retreat from a summer heat wave. Unwind with a glass of Okanagan wine as you take in the view of the surrounding mountains and golf courses from your private balcony. Or, take a dip in the indoor or outdoor pools and hot tubs.

This spankin'-new luxury hotel boasts a gourmet kitchen with designer granite countertops, a wet bar and a refrigerator in each suite, as well as a spacious living area complete with hardwood floors, a fireplace and wireless internet access.

With an abundance of outdoor activities only steps from your door, you'll find plenty to do wah diddy diddy during your stay, from a children's playground and sports court, to the Columbia Valley's nine golf courses, and the whole family will love sittin' on the dock of the bay at nearby Lake Windermere, famous for its swimming, sailing, canoeing and trout fishing.

Or, twist and shout your way through Radium Hot Springs or Kootenay National Park on hiking trails that wend past bighorn sheep and colourful mineral springs.

After a long day in the water or on the green, indulge your favourite foodie with fresh, seasonal dishes at the resort's Elements Grill. Sample healthy favourites like wild salmon or bison carpaccio, but leave room for a little sugar, sugar in the form of apricot roulade or a dark chocolate tart.

Once you fall for this dreamy retreat, breaking up is hard to do — but hey, it's your party and you can cry if you want to.
