Overview

Nelson Lodge Rental Photos and Description

PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Three Mile Lodge is a intriguing property located 3 miles from Nelson City, a southern exposure on the north shore of pristine Kootenay Lake in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

It is a majestic log post and beam structure that can accommodate a larger number of guests. The open floor plan allows for stunning panoramic views of the lake and mountains. This very comfortable residence possesses a unique rustic grace. It features fine woodwork aside rough hewn logs with two outstanding and artful river stone fireplaces in the main room (one with fountain) and stained glass windows. The two classic fireplaces that face each other from opposite ends of the great room were assembled by a European artisan with stunning water molded stones collected over the years from creeks and river beds across the Kootenays. Each stone is unique and different but artistically positioned to complement the other in colour and form. Truly a study in the beauty of local nature, as is Three Mile Lodge itself.

Floor to ceiling windows open wide onto a huge 1000 sq. ft. sundeck running the length of the house, eventually leading to grassy levels and a private sandy beach below where boats can be tied and anchored or pulled up on the shore. The property is situated amongst cedar trees and offers secluded shady areas of refuge from the summer sun. The Lodge is elegantly furnished throughout, has a large dining table seating 10, a full kitchen and includes utensils and linens.

For the pianist amoung the guests there is a well tuned Bluthner grand piano and for readers, a small library with a collection of eclectic titles.

It is not often that a house of such size, character and luxury is made available as a vacation home. Three Mile Lodge is an all season retreat and a rare opportunity to enjoy a visit to Nelson B.C.in grand style. It is sure to stimulate your appreciation of the great nature available in the Kootenays offered to you in elegant comfort of a special holiday to remember

About Tim McGauley

The owners have been offering waterfront vacation rentals at their properties for the past 15 years.

Tim McGauley purchased this lodge in 2002

Why Tim McGauley chose Nelson

Three Mile Lodge has the unique feature of being located lakeside in the middle of a quiet neighbourhood cove which allows for a undisturbed gorgeous and panoramic views of the lake and uninhabited distant shore. It is noticeably private in that our lakeside neighbour's houses are screened from view by the dense bushes and trees separating us.

While being able to enjoy such peaceful vistas, the Lodge has quick access to the highway to the city with an easy level entrance and parking, which is particularly convenient in the ski season. The scenic drive to Nelson City from the Lodge takes only 6-7 minutes while it is on the way to golf courses in both directions which makes it a very convenient location indeed.

What makes this lodge unique

WINTER SKI VACATION

In winter, a short drive out of Nelson is one of the finest powder skiing venues anywhere.

Whitewater Ski Resort (www.skiwhitewater.com/ www.powderhounds .com) attracts powder hounds, boarders, cross country enthusiasts and skiers of all types from all over the globe to enjoy this relatively unknown treasure.Three Mile Lodge is about a 20 - 25 minute drive from Whitewater Resort and provides a welcoming and comfortable hiatus from a day or week of intense skiing or boarding. In the opposite direction

the Lodge is a 45 min. drive to stunning Ainsworth Hotsprings, snuggled along the rocky banks of the main body of Kootenay Lake, surely a therapeutic treat for your senses.

For social types, Nelson's evening entertainment is just a 6-7 minute drive from the Lodge and provides a great selection of restaurants and drinking establishments, often with live music, to complete the day's activities. A Junior hockey team, Nelson Leafs, offers a further night's entertainment and the opportunity to meet more sports minded Nelsonites.

SUMMER FUN

Amenities include table settings for ten outdoors or in, and a barbecue and accessories for splendid on deck summer dining. The view afforded the diners is a spectacular panorama across the lake to it's uninhabited southern shore, flanked by the forested Selkirk Mountains. Eagles and osprey can often be seen fishing for their own dinner with a graceful display of soaring and diving, These and other usual waterfowl sightings make the large deck a pleasant place to relax and enjoy a drink or two.The grounds surrounding the Lodge have a number of flowering beds and fragrant blossoming trees in summer. The grounds then wind down towards the lake to a large flat grassy area suitable for exercise or activities like net games.The lake is a delight; clear, clean, wide and long and relatively sparsely populated by motor boaters. It is enjoyably swimmable through the summer heat.
