Kootenay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Booking now for 2014. Not available for 2013

Kootenay Lake is paradise found!!!

A free ferry to Nelson (Nelson is often referred to as Santa Fe north for its interesting art, restaurants, city centre) is further up the lake and provides a great outing. Ainsworth Hot Springs are near Nelson as well. Nelson has golfing, skiing, mountain biking and sandy beaches.

Crawford Bay is about 30 km north of the cottage along Highway 3A. An artisan community that features glass blowing, broom making, organic foods, iron works, painting, quilting...you get the idea.

Boswell located about 10 km north has a glass castle to tour!

Creston, 30 km south is a gem of a town with all kinds of fresh/organic produce including tender fruits and vegetables grown nearby. The old movie theatre is a classic for catching a recent film. A variety of restaurants tempt the palate. The Creston Wildlife Management Centre is just west of Creston and features 17,000 acres of nature. You can do interpretive hikes, guided canoe trips, climb bird blinds and see all sorts of interesting animals and birds.

My home is in Calgary, Alberta. I am a town planner and have been fortunate enough to work in North America, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Much of my work revolves around sustainable developments and sustainable plans for municipalities. Attractive design, architecture and building communities in a sustainable way are important to me both personally and professionally. My passions are outrigger paddling, gardening and great friends!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1989

This is the best of Canadian outdoors...kayaking, boating, hiking, mountain biking or just sitting on the deck with a good book are all perfect activities here.

The cottage has hand adzed beams, unmatched views from inside the cottage - up and down the lake, and a light airy feel. To date we have enjoyed seeing a variety of birds and animals on the property including moose, deer (June 2012), bear (May 2012), otter (May 2010), wild turkeys, bats, bald eagles (June 2012), ospreys (June 2012), loons, all sorts of ducks and geese and a variety of hummingbirds(June 2012). Bring your binoculars!

My wife and I had an awesome time fishing, kayaking, and spending time with friends and family that came out during the week. fishing was awesome right off the rocks. We caught about 15 fish during the week a mix of kokanee, rainbow trout, mountain white fish, and squaw. The cottage was even better than we were expecting. definitely enough room for a larger group or family. The cottage came completely equipped with everything you could think of, even a washer and dryer. We both would definitely recommend this cottage.

Wonderful spot for a getaway!

Our first impression was "the pictures just don't do justice to this rental". We have had many "cottage" experiences and this is far beyond a cottage. Everything that one could imagine is in the kitchen...extremely well equipped! The home was gorgeous and the scenery incredible. We kayaked down the lake and felt like we were alone in the wilderness...wonderful when you need to get away from it all. Having said that, Creston is just down the road (30km or so) and had everything else we needed.

There were two amazing storms while we were there and actually lost power for a day, but contacted the property manager who "phoned it in" and within 24 hours all was well. It does get pretty warm, so a fan would have been helpful... and one recommendation to visitors..bring lots of mosquito spray. The mosquitoes were horrendous... but then it's been a really wet summer. The other note is that there are many stairs to the water... and very deep there. We were fine with it, but others may not be.

We drove up to the ferry to cross to Nelson...a great experience! Make sure you stop in Crawford's Bay and visit the artisans there. We came home with a "Harry Potter Quidach type" hand made broom and two beautiful handmade wrought iron lamps. It was also really interesting to visit Nelson and see how different it is from Creston... so enjoyable!

All told, my husband and I and our two little dogs had a wonderful vacation. We highly recommend this listing and found Lorene wonderful to deal with. We only hope they decide to rent this out again in 2014. We'll be back!

Really enjoyed our stay at this cottage during July 2010. Beautifully situated on Kootenay lake, the views from the spacious balcony are stunning. Lake swims/diving and kayaking were welcome during the hot afternoon. Cottage itself is well stocked for BBQing, eating, etc. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place -- worth the extra distance from Calgary or Vancouver. Lots of mosquitos around, but nothing out-of-the-ordinary for the woods ;-)

Highly recommend this cottage...

Quinn and Family...

This was the perfect retreat for my husband and I. The setting is magical, spectacular, very private, very quiet. At night there is not another house light in sight. The house is a wonderful design, fully equipped (linens, dishes, cooking utensils, books) , and spotlessly clean. The owners are very responsive and very easy to work with. The description & photos are totally accurate, though they don't reflect the full beauty of this place. We had a marvelous time and hope to return!
