GARDEN SUITE WALK TO TOWN, BEACH TRAILS; 20 MIN. TO SKI HILL

Nelson Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Suite at 808 Fourth Street, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Garden Suite was built three years ago in the basement of our 1928 heritage home. It was renovated for visiting family members and has been lived in by our daughter and granddaughter for the last two years.

The Garden Suite is airy and bright with windows in every room. It has a separate entrance that takes you through a vestibule with lots of space for coats, skis, bikes, etc. The main room is a well-appointed kitchen and dining room. The den is south/west facing and was originally a child’s bedroom. It is the brightest room and includes a television and DVD, and a small lending library for avid readers. The sofa bed is queen size and very comfortable. The bathroom has a heated tile floor; it is fairly small and includes a toilet, vanity sink and shower. Finally the bedroom has a very comfortable queen size bed and a closet.

Guests are welcome to use the lovely back garden (in summer) for barbecues or just to sit in the shade of our walnut tree while watching the apples, plums and pears ripen. We request advance notice as this is a shared area. Similarly, the laundry area can be made available to you on request.

From our location, one can walk to any area of Nelson quite easily, and we have bus service one short block away. Whether you are visiting with family nearby or enjoying one of the many outdoor sports or local cultural events, the Garden Suite at The Hive will provide a comfortable, clean, well-equipped and accessible home away from home during your stay in Nelson.

We are a five minute walk to the beach, 25 minute drive to Whitewater ski hill, 40 minutes away from Castlegar Airport, a four-hour drive from both Kelowna airport and Spokane airport (Washington State).

We are Andrew and Dorita, boomers with an empty nest! We have lived in Nelson for close to twenty years , having resided in Victoria, Toronto and Montreal (Morin-Heights) after our arrivals here from the Netherlands and the UK. We are both still working, with Andrew coordinating a social service cooperative while Dorita teaches at a Waldorf school. We both enjoy travelling, outdoor sports like hiking, biking and skiing, as well as a regular game of Scrabble or “Oh Pshaw”. We enjoy having guests and appreciate hearing stories from our visitors, That being said, we have a high regard for personal space and are happy to provide a quiet, private accommodation for you and your companion(s).

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006

Our home and vacation rental are located on a quiet, sunny street in a unique town in the middle of the Selkirk range along the banks of Kootenay Lake, an eighty kilometer-long lake. We have year-round access to some of the best recreational activities imaginable (as listed) and the town of Nelson is well-known for its cultural richness and the diversity of its residents.

We live in a quiet residential area located within minutes walk of beautiful hiking trails and breath-taking views of Kokanee Glacier and Kootenay Lake. We enjoy hiking, biking and swimming during the dry, warm summers as well as the incredibly deep snow of winter skiing.

Dorita and Andrew’s Nelson Garden Suite is a great location for hiking, biking and sightseeing in the Nelson area. The location is very close to Kootenay Lake, the Nelson Rail Trail, and the historic Nelson town centre.
The suite is large, bright, clean and nicely furnished.
Thanks again Dorita and Andrew

Excellent Accommodation

The suite is large, bright, clean and nicely furnished. We ate most of our meals in and preparation was easy in the well equipped kitchen. We used both the bedroom and den for sleeping and both beds were very comfortable. It is in a beautiful heritage house with a nice yard. The neighbourhood is conveniently located close to the lake, walks and town. The owners are very helpful and accommodating. We stayed here with our two dogs and it worked out well. I highly recommend this suite and hope to return soon.
