We are a family that has been enjoying this property since our grandparents purchased it in the early 1940's. Spending our summers on the beach, fishing, waterskiing, and off to hikes at Kokanee Glacier Park, a short drive from us.

Birchbrook is a large family cottage nestled amongst a deep forest that gently opens to an old orchard that slopes calmly down to the 265’ of beach frontage. An outdoor fireplace made from River stone and a small babbling brook help to sooth away the day’s work while feasting your eyes on the serenity of the Lake.

Short drives to many amenities within the Kootenay Region, many circle tours, either by bike or car. Boating on the Kootenay Lake helps to calm anyone needing to get away from it all.

Great golf courses of the Kootenays (kootenaygolf.ca) await your visit. As well as the Pool at Ainsworth Hot Springs just a short 25 min drive away.

And if you want to just sit out on the lawn the peacefulness will sooth away all your cares.

FAMILY REUNION

  • 5 of 5
This home exceeded our expectations and was the perfect place for our family gathering including two Labrador retrievers. The spectacular weather and view graced our relaxing and connecting moments. The outdoor fireplace became a central hub for conversations where my husband indulged his fire-building talents for our pleasure. One night we went to the the beach fire pit for a change of pace. We rented paddle boards a short distance away and took turns having adventures on them. Nelson supplied all our shopping needs. We took a day trip to Halfway River Hot Springs, but other than that we fellowshipped around the fires, cooking, eating, swimming, canoeing, and playing with the dogs, kids, and frisbees. The owner was gracious throughout, and the grounds and home well kept. We'd do it again in a heartbeat!

GUY'S WEEKEND

Guy's Weekend
  • 5 of 5
A few of my friends and I decided to make a trip to Nelson from Spokane for a weekend of relaxing and skiing. The skiing wasn't great (neither Red nor Whitewater had received much snow recently), but the relaxing was great.

We found this house on VRBO and it seemed to fit all of our needs. We booked the place site-unseen and were very pleased when we arrived. The house was much larger than expected. It is very cozy, yet quite spacious at the same time. The living room is very large and the wood stove warms the space very quickly. The house is just a quick drive from Nelson and anything else in the region.

FAMILY REUNION

  • 4 of 5
We decided to hold a family reunon for our immediate family members this year and wanted a location on Kootenay Lake as that is where our children spent part of their pre-teen and teenagers years, as well as later in their early adulthoods when they visited us. The Birchbank Lodge was a perfect location for us. It was roomy inside and out and very private. The sunroom was our gathering point each morning and each evening where we took turns cooking great meals. We were 8 adults with one baby but also had day visitors from friends who still lived in and near the area. Mountain biking trails were almost at our doorstep as was fishing and hiking in the nearby Kokanee Glacier Park. All rooms and beds were clean and comfortable and there was plenty of space to spread out our gear. Bonus was the attached garage to store bikes, stroller and other bulky items. We would highly recommend this lodge. As well, it was a pleasure dealing with the owners and we felt comfortable with the deposit we submitted and her easy approach for final payment (on our arrival). Thank you.

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
I and my family very much enjoyed this rugged older home on a spectacular piece of property overlooking Kootenay Lake. Tons of space, lots of household items and linens. The owner was extremely helpful and very accommodating regarding our arrival/departure. We had planned on a golf week and due to weather only managed 3 games but courses in the area are very nice. Ferry schedule across lake needs to be taken into consideration for activities but in summer time, there's lots on. Overall, a very enjoyable and relaxing week.

Map

Located halfway between Nelson and Balfour. Short drive to Championship Golf Courses, at Balfour, Kokanee Springs, and Granite Pointe

Skiing at Whitewater Ski Area

Lots of Artisans and shopping in the City of Nelson and surrounding areas. Drive to Kaslo and visit the SS Moyie Paddlewheeler, and take the Kootenay Lake ferry to the Unique Artisan community of Crawford Bay. And at Ainsworth there is the Hot Spings.
