David and I met in the Slocan Valley in 2005. We were married on a dock on Slocan Lake. I've lived here for 25 years and love it. It's a beautiful, peaceful place with a diverse community. I am a landscape painter and sculptor. All the art works in the home are mine and reflect my love of this Valley. Most of the realistic landscape paintings are for sale. The Lodge has beautiful natural lighting and is a perfect art gallery. A dream come true! I offer one-on-one art tutoring at my studio here. (View my portfolio on flickr. Just google Pam Sims.) My other interests include gardening, cooking and photography.
David has worked as a touring musician and managed a large ranch in Alberta. He loves hiking and paddling and plays music locally. We're friendly, easy going and knowledgeable about the area. You'll enjoy complete privacy of the home and yard. We live in a separate house on the property and are here to help if need be.
We look forward to meeting new people from all over the world. We will do our best to make sure you have a comfortable and memorable visit to the Slocan Valley. All people are welcome. Gay and Lesbian friendly.
Cheers ! Pam
The beauty of this pristine river valley area was what attracted David and I. Peace and Quiet. Fresh air and clean water. It's a safe place to live, and be accepted for who you are. Many creative and thoughtful people come here to escape urban and mainstream cultures. The Valley is known for spiritual healing, freedom of choice and Back-to-the-Land lifestyles. It's small communities are vibrant, positive and cooperative.
We are a 45 minute drive from Nelson, which is known as the 'Best Small Town Arts Community', in Canada. It's skiing scene is world renowned. We are a 45 minute drive to Castlegar and it's airport and mainstream stores. We are a 3.5 hours drive to the International Airport in Spokane, Washington.
I have enjoyed creating an artistic living space and bringing the outdoors to the interior with large windows and skylights.
Every room is beautifully lit with natural light, and has views of the garden and surrounding trees.
There is room to gather and connect, as well as have privacy. The house has 1650 square feet of floor space, on 2 floors, & a 14 foot ceiling in the main room. The entire home is beautifully finished with custom crafted woodwork, antiques and art. The romantic master bedroom space is 24 by 11 feet, with heritage wallpapers. There's room to waltz. The home is quiet and private, yet near to stores, restaurants & gas station. We like being able to walk or bike to the store or the river. It has easy year round access. The town of Winlaw is very friendly and welcoming.
