Nelson House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
Welcome to 'Fairbank House.' This comfortable home sits on one private acre conveniently located at the end of a no-through road. The house is surrounded by mature trees, great mountain views and boasts 160 feet of Kootenay Lake waterfront, including a 50-foot secluded beach seconds from the door with an anchored float for diving, swimming or mooring your boat. A firepit is located between the beach and the house for campfires/sing-a-longs.
The architecturally open concept of the fully equipped 1700 sq ft home features a sunken conversation pit, solarium, spacious living/dining room, and well-supplied kitchen. Picture windows look out over the yard and expansive deck. This meditative retreat is relaxing and tasteful. A small piece of heaven in the Kootenays.
The community of Harrop is easily accessed by a five-minute, 24-hr.-a-day free ferry ride across the West Arm of Kootenay Lake. This gives one the illusion of splendid ‘island’ isolation and quietude, while being only minutes away from the recreational highlights the area has to offer. Seven kilometres down the road, the nearby village of Proctor has a well-supplied general store and liquor outlet. The old schoolhouse is now home to a bakery/cafe, library and hair salon.
The area's many recreational opportunities include visits to hotsprings, Kokanee Glacier Park, Cody Caves, two spectacular 18-hole golf courses close by, and the historic town of Nelson, 'Canada's best little arts town', 30 minutes down the lake.

My siblings and I own the house and rent it for a few weeks to maintain it properly. I live here -for now anyway - but tuck personal belongings away while leaving amenities that make it feel like a real home, not some sterile dwelling. I work from here and enjoy doing so immensely.
it is a family home with limited availability
privacy, comfort, the lake, and much more
