Your Hosts

Pilar and Arnoldo came from Costa Rica to explore the interior of BC and got caught here with the spectacular views, the peace, and the wonderful and welcoming community.  They have had businesses in tourism and technology for many years and decided to apply that knowledge to this new endevour.  Carolin and Johannes came from Germany to reinforce the team with their strong professional experience in the tourism and marketing industries.


Carolin Zennig

Carolin came from Germany to spent part of her working holiday in the peaceful place of Crawford Bay. She has travelled many parts of the world, but this is her very first visit to North America. The first few years of her career in tourism she spent in New Zealand, Germany and South East Asia. Carolin has a passion for climbing to the top of majestic mountains and many adventurous travel stories to share.



Johannes Liel

Johannes first came to the Kootenays during a vacation, while having a career in marketing communications back in his home country Germany. He decided to come back to enjoy the special atmosphere of the community around the lake, but also the fantastic outdoor options as he’s a passionate hiker. After having traveled extensively for the past decade, he’s now happy to share his hospitality skills and positive attitude with guests of Wedgwood Retreat.
