About The Owner

We have lived in Nelson since 1990. We are both teachers and wanted to raise our children in a small community with easy access to an outdoor lifestyle. We can often be found taking in performances at our local theatre, mountain biking, cross country skiing, gardening and paddling on the lake. We enjoy meeting our guests and sharing our private beach.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose British Columbia Mountains

This property is in a quiet residential neighbourhood on a crescent which offers an ideal location for relaxing strolls. The private, sandy beach has spectacular views of the West Arm Provincial Park.

What makes this house unique

An open living space which is fully equipped for a relaxing, comfortable stay. The beds are very comfortable. The bbq is located next to the beach with a patio set to enjoy beach front dining.

Excellent fishing, swimming and boating from our private beach.

It's just like home, only better!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the wonderful accommodation. It was a perfect, relaxing weekend. Just what we needed! Thanks for accommodating our furry kids as well. They loved to play with your pups. Lovely layout and fresh space for a wonderful stay. Thanks!

Wonderful, relaxing time at the beach house

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your house with us this week! We had a wonderful time skiing and snowshoeing at Whitewater with our daughters. The house was very clean and comfortable for our family of four and a convenient base for the outings to nearby attractions. The setting by the lake in the Kootenays is exceptionally scenic. Everyone loved our vacation and is looking forward to visiting again.

Catherine, Arnie, Poppy & Ruby, Thank you! I found you on VRBO and here you are, even more wonderful than I imagined. The Beach House is inviting and beautiful and the entire property is amazing, many gardens, the lake and dock and of course, Poppy & Ruby. Catherine & Arnie are wonderful hosts and I admire their commitment to the balance of growing, recycling and healthy life style. I will be back. Thank you!!!!

A Kootenay Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this place justice. What a treasure in the Kootenays we discovered with this relaxing, guest house with beach access. Our family had such a fabulous holiday. Everything was clean, comfortable and well maintained. Highlights were catching rainbow trout from the dock, barbecues at the beach, campfires, the harvest moon, salmon spawning, swimming, SUPing ,zipline, mountain biking and making many special family memories. Catherine and Arnie were such friendly, gracious hosts and we cannot say enough about this fantastic place to both relax and use as home base from which to explore the Kooteneys. Ruby and Poppy were the icing on the cake!

Absolutely Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time! The owners went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The location is dreamy. The garden, lake, and dock are so fun. It feels very safe and quiet, but still close enough to town to enjoy everything Nelson has to offer (easy drive to town). The house is beautifully designed and very comfortable. Would definitely recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you Emily for this wonderful review. We very much enjoyed having your lovely family stay with us these past five weeks. It was special to see your girls doing their lessons at the beach, scribing letters in the sand. Homeschooling at it’s best! Enjoy the rest of your adventure! We hope to see you again. Best regards, Catherine & Arnie
