Overview

Nakusp Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bth, (Sleeps 2-4)

Serenity Views is located in the Kootenays on the shores of the Arrow Lakes with breathtaking views of the lake and mountains and close to two Hot Springs facilities which are open year-round. Serenity Views is a unique lodging and recreation facility catering to those who seek a secluded retreat, as well as to those wanting easy access to all amenities. It is designed to meet the needs of most travellers by providing excellent lodging, friendly service, and an enriching experience with long lasting wellness benefits.

Nestled in the forest on a 4-acre property allows for individual taste in recreation and retreat. The newly built 550 sq. ft. studio suite provides complete living accommodation. It has a fully equipped kitchen, wireless Internet and cable television and sleeps 4 persons. There is access to outdoor living, pathways, and lakeside recreation. Our guests have privacy and the sense of freedom to enjoy the area in their own personal way.

The magnificent natural location provides an ideal setting for outdoor living whether you want to relax, meditate, paint, or just watch the changing moods and colors of the mountains and lake. A paradise for bird watchers and photographers, the area is rich in wildlife with osprey, eagles, a variety of waterfowl, woodpeckers and deer.

Serenity Views is located just 5 minutes from the Village of Nakusp with all amenities. From our property, take a beautiful 15 minute drive up a paved mountain highway to Nakusp Hot Springs or drive to Halycon Hot Springs, just 20 minutes away. Wherever you go, the scenery is magnificent and people are friendly.

In summer, enjoy wonderful hiking, boating, fishing, golf and swimming. The beautiful sandy public beach is only 5 minutes away. From here enjoy a stroll down the promenade along the lake, just a block from shopping and restaurants. There is also a public boat launch and docks if you bring your power boat.

NEW: Guests of Serenity Views can rent our canoe, single person kayaks or paddleboat to further enjoy the beautiful lake.

In the winter, enjoy snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country, downhill, and heli-skiing followed by a soak in the Hot Springs, or just come for the health benefits of enjoying the Hot Springs along with the peaceful and friendly atmosphere.

Fishing in the Arrow Lakes is great in all seasons - winter fishing is spectacular and fishing charters can be booked locally.

For the more active traveler, we encourage exploration of the many facilities and activities around Nakusp and the surrounding communities such as golfing, water sports, hiking, back country exploring, museums, historic sites and unique shopping and restaurants.

For those who wish a tranquil experience, Serenity Views offers secluded and quiet locations to relax, meditate, and find renewal. Enjoy the pleasant walks on private forested land or lakeshore, the beautiful scenery, fantastic views and nature in all its glory.

For the artisan we provide a quiet and serene environment. You are encouraged to use the property for inspiration with several areas designated for application of your work.

We also have a camping cabin on our property. If the Studio Suite is not available and you would like a 'rustic' holiday experience, please contact us for more details.

Our service is designed to provide more than lodging. It is a rejuvenating life experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolutely wonderful stay. Skiied Wensley Creek trails. Nakusp Hot Springs are the hottest. Fishing on Arrow Lake and on Kootenay Lake was awesome! Caught a 17 pound Gerrard and a 15 pound Dolly Varden. Thanks Marilyn and Brian!

A Private Oasis

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at the studio suite. It was immaculate and had a fully stocked kitchen, comfortable bed and linens and spacious living area. We enjoyed the absolute quiet, being nestled in the woods and we often saw deer on the property. We took advantage of the lake access and our dog enjoyed swimming in the clean, clear water. I have already recommended the suite to others looking to stay in the area.

Serenity Views Studio Suite is so sweet!

  • 5 of 5
We were very impressed with the studio suite. It was very well planned and very spacious. The kitchen had everything we needed and the bed was super comfy. The views from the large windows was wonderful. Our hosts were there whenever we needed something but we still had lots of privacy. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone staying in Nakusp. We were just a couple minutes from town and close to two hot springs. And don't miss Chumley' s for Halibut fish and chips on Tuesday night's!

Peace, quiet and solitude - an excellent stay at Serenity Views

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a week long vacation at Serenity Views, and although we didn't luck out with the weather - we definitely lucked out with the hosts.

The moment we pulled into the driveway we knew this would be a place we would return to many times.

The studio apartment is very clean, spacious and inviting. Everything you need is there - one trip to the grocery store to stock up, and you can spend the rest of your vacation on a very secluded rock beach enjoying the lake, soaking in the sun and kayaking (there are kayaks to rent - which we loved).

The little deck has a bbq, so you can grill up some fish or whatever you prefer and enjoy it surrounded by trees with a lake view. A 2 minute walk takes you down to the rock beach, while a 2 minute walk in the other (uphill) direction takes you a "meditation deck", where there is a little clearing, and a wooden deck, with goldfish swimming under it. Very serene.

My favourite moments were getting up first thing in the morning and talking a walk on the beach, to experience absolute silence and just take in the sunrise. Amazing.

The hosts are excellent - we had a few great chats, but rest of the time it was as if we had the whole area to ourselves. It was really enjoyable.

The Camping Cabin is awesome!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 4 nights in the cabin and we would much rather stay here than ANY 5 star resort. This cabin is perfect for a rustic getaway with reasonable rates (which actually influenced our decision to stay!). The decor is simple and you have everything you need. We were so grateful to bring our dogs along, they had so much fun. The screened in porch is so amazing - we can't say enough about it, the views are spectacular, we didn't want to be anywhere else! Love the nature walks, so much to see and experience. We miss it right now just writing this review.......*sigh* The owners are the most kind and hospitable and we will certainly be back! Thank you again for being dog friendly! :)
