Great location, awesome town, tons of fun

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome place. Cool house, very close to downtown, which was perfect for the New Years festivities. There was plenty to do. . . We came for skiing, but also ended up having a great time in Nelson, meeting some cool locals, and going off to the Ainsworth Hot Springs twice... Which has a cool water cave. I highly recommend this place if you're looking to experience Nelson and the surrounding areas. I've stayed in Castlegar before (a two night ski trip to Red and Whitewater) and this place is SOOOOO greatly superior that it's not even comparable. Lisa and the VRBO staff went above and beyond to help us and the price point was very reasonable. The place is big enough for a couple, two couples, or - if you don't mind tight quarters - a bunch of friends looking to rent a place so that they can ski/board or do whatever other awesome activities in the heavily wooded and mountainous area. Nelson rocks, and this place does too. Oh, and you should probably rent Roxanne and watch it while you're here (on your computer - no TV) if you have the energy after skiing the amazing terrain at the local hill; but, you might not.

Quaint and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this beautiful home in the heart of Nelson. Just a few blocks from town and the river. The home was spacious and comfortable. We had everything we needed and felt like it was our home away from home. Thank you for hosting us!!

Great stay at the Roxanne's House!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed 3 nights in Nelson at the legendary Roxanne's house with some friends. We really enjoyed the accomodations. Great value for a 2 bedroom rental with plenty of room. Not only did the rental have plenty of room and a great layout, but it has amazing character! The apartment was really cool inside and the front porch is also really nice with seats from the local theatre across the deck. If you want to spend time skiing or snowboarding at Whitewater resort or taking in the awesome Nelson experience I would definitely reccommend this apartment rental.
