About Julie-Claire

My name is Julie-Claire and I have owned this house since 2000. I lived in the house for 8 years and loved every moment in it! In 2009 my husband and I purchased a house just across the big orange bridge here in Nelson. I just couldn't sell this house as I LOVE it so much, so I decided to make it into a vacation rental.

I am an electrician by trade, and have worked here in Nelson for 13 years as an electrician at various companies and as an instructor for Selkirk College.

Currently I am on a year of maternity leave as I just had my second baby in April 2013.

Julie-Claire purchased this house in 2000

Why Julie-Claire chose Nelson

I have always loved Nelson...I grew up in Deep Cove, North Vancouver and since graduating high school I have moved to numerous towns and cities over BC but I always new that one day when I would settle down in Nelson. The culture and beauty of Nelson draw so many unique and different people-all types and it is what makes Nelson so special. The location of being hidden off all major highways, nestled amoungst the mountains, and overlooking gorgeous Kootenay Lake make Nelson so spectacularily gorgeous.

What makes this house unique

My house has a warm, cozy feeling. The colors and the lay out of the hosue make everyone immediately feel comfortable and at home. The deck has entertained many over the years as they enjoy its magnificiant view of Kootneay Lake and Kokanee Glaciar. My favorite thing about this house is how you feel like you are hidden away in a quiet, peaceful spot miles away from any neighbors or the hussle bussle of the town, but really you are right there almost in the core of it, surrounded by trees on 3.5 sides and an easy walk to anywhere I ever wanted to go!

What a great completely remodeled historic home nestled in a nice private setting with a beautiful view. Lots of restaurants, bars and many things to do in historic downtown Nelson just minutes away. We were a group of 4 die hard skiers from the Seattle area enroute to Revelstoke BC. Being a lifelong cook I found the kitchen completely stocked with all the essentials of home and then some. JC (the owner) was very accommodating in all aspects of our stay. The home was a perfect fit for us and I wouldn't hesitate to rebook again. Forgot to mention great skiing in Whitewater just 15 minutes away.

Nelson Heritage House an Awesome place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Our 4 night stay was great. The home is in great shape inside and out with a spectacular view of the lake and is located near enough to downtown core to walk for groceries, bars and restaurants. The staircase going upstairs is a bit tight and steep but that's to be expected in a home of this vintage and the driveway is also fairly steep and narrow but we got use to backing down it. The house has all of the modern amenities and JC the owner has it tastefully decorated with art and trinkets that are fitting for the town of Nelson . We would definatly stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you-you two! It was great to meet you both, I hope you had a great rest of your trip, and found some good wineries to sample! I look forward to meeting you again one day! JC

Fabulous, beautiful view, secluded but close to downtown!

  • 5 of 5

The house is really beautiful, up in the hill, surrounded by trees! You get the feeling of being far away in the forest, when in fact, you're a couple of meters from Baker Street and downtown Nelson, where you can shop, eat and hang out! Also, you can walk to the waterfront boardwalk and reach the beach, the kid's park and get a close view of the bridge. This is also by walking distance to the Station when you can take a little train tour. In the house, you will find all the space that you need, all the comfort of home, all the kitchen appliances and accessories you could need and a huge laundry/storage space. The colorful house is really clean and got this little feeling of history that makes it charming! In the summer, you are a short drive to Mountain Station and Svoboda mountain bike trails. Go to the Bike shop to buy a card of the area and get advices about the best trails! Nelson is mountain bike at its best: steep, fast and sometimes huge!!! Enjoy your stay! But don't forget to read the instruction and follow the direction that will give you Julie-Claire!!! Without that, you'll get lost!!!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome. We had no problem finding the house, just followed the signs to the campground and there it was. The key was where it was said to be and there was lots of room for all 6 of us. It was very comfortable and had all the amenities required. The host was extremely helpful and kind and friendly. The house is quaint, rustic and great. would definitely recommend anyone to stay there. we had a wonderful stay.

My vacation rental is the whole house that I have owned since I moved to Nelson in 2000. This newly renovated heritage home sits peacefully and privately amongst the trees with only one neighbor far up a hill to the right. Everything from the electrical and plumbing to the drywall, paint, tile, wood trim, windows, and the roof has been renovated. I installed all high efficient appliances, -washer/dryer, furnace, water on demand hot water tank, fridge and gas stove. I kept the original hard wood floors.

ALL YEAR AROUND

ACTIVITIES & THINGS TO DO WALKING FROM THE HOUSE-You are a 10 minute easy walk to Lakeside Park, playground and beach, also to Gyro Park's Baker Street look out, kid's pool and playground. A quick walk gets you to Safeway, Save-on Foods, the liquor store and Nelson's historical downtown and Baker Street. Here you can spend days looking through our many shops, amazing restaurants, famous cafes. Stop and take some time to cruise through the many arts and craft stores, and museums. You can also be swimming or sitting in the hot tub or sauna at our local rec centre after a easy 8 minute stroll.

For such a small town Nelson boasts numerous restuarants that are very worth checking out-delicious!!! I have a book at the house with the names and phone numbers of the restaurants(and their specialties), cafes and shops.

For the WINTER visitor-

SKIING-Whitewater and all of its fresh and light powder is located 10 km from town, and up a 10 km road off the highway. Red Mountain is located in Rossland which is about a 45 minute drive away, and well worth the drive!

CAT AND HELI SKIING-There are many cat skiing and heli-skiing operations that are based out of Nelson, and our surrounding area.

CROSS COUNTRY SKIING-There are 2 cross country ski areas both close to town. Also come join the locals and enjoy the Rails to Trails trail and strap on your cross country ski's for a quiet and peaceful ski for as long as your heart desires! Just west of Castlegar is Nancy Green Ski Area with hours and hours of groomed cross country ski trails.

For the SPRING/SUMMER/FALLvisitor-

HIKING/WALKING-There are numerous hiking trails, some walking distance from the house, others a drive away. Kokanee Glaciar Park being world famous and about an hour drive gets you to the paking lot. MOUNTAIN BIKING/LEISURE RIDING/ROAD RIDING-Nelson is known for its mountain biking- trails ranging from beginer to very advanced. Many of these trails are

accessable by bike from the house with a ride of 10 or so minutes to the trail heads. You can bike or drive to many places to start the Rails to Trails trail where you can bike, run, or walk for hours on an old railroad track that has been converted to a gravel trail with wonderful views of Kootenay Lake. The road riding is outstanding right from Nelson. The highway north from town follows the lake for an outstanding scenic ride with the breeze off the lake to cool you down. The circle loop of the Slocan Valley is amazing for those wanting the longer rides(200km or so).

GOLF- There are plenty of golf courses in the Nelson and surrounding area. Granite Point Golf Course is Nelson's local golf course and is a 10 minute drive from the house. Balfour Golf Course is a 30 minute drive and Castlegar Golf Course is a 30-40 minute drive away. The famous Kokanee Springs Golf Resort is a 30 minute drive and then the 30 minute free ferry ride away. The golf course offers free pick up and drop offs from the east side ferry landing.

ROCK CLIMBING-There is rock climbing close to town, a crag here in town above Selkirk College's 10th Street Campus and others a drive away. Currently Nelson is without an indoor climbing gym, but I hear that there is talk of one opening up soon! I will keep you posted.

For the SUMMER visitor-

SWIMMING/KIDS PLAYGROUND-The swimming is great in Kootenay Lake, and you can walk to Lakeside Park beach in 10 minutes from the house. There is a great trail that follows the lakeside you can take to get you there, or drive and launch your boat at Lakeside Park's boat launch. There is a concession stand to buy some yummy treats, and a kids playground there as well. Gyro Park is a quick 5 minute walk from the house, there you will find a fabulous Baker Street look out as well as a childrens play ground, swimming pool and water park.

WATER SPORTS-At Lakeside Park beach you can rent kayaks and paddle boards. For bigger toys you can rent boats and jet ski's at the dock behind the Prestige Inn. If you brought your own boats there are a few different boat launches to choose from.

BEACHING-There are plenty of beaches to choose from, some within walking distances from the house and others a quick drive away. Kokanee Park, Taghum Beach are two outstanding beaches that are worth the drive to visit! Kokanee Park has BBQ pits, and a playground for the kids to enjoy as well.
