About the property

A lovely space with gorgeous views in Uphill Nelson. $75/night.

Enjoy your vacation to the Kootenays by staying at The House on the Hill. This cozy home, a few minutes drive from downtown Nelson, will provide you with exceptional value for your stay in Nelson. Located in the Uphill area the house is nestled on a corner lot surrounded by older trees and lovely gardens. The home is located in a quiet neighbourhood with plenty of privacy and drive-way parking.

We are one block away from the Rails to Trails, a local walking/biking/nordic ski trail that covers Nelson, or a short drive to Lakeside park or downtown to amazing shops, cafes, and restaurants. We are a 20 minute drive to Whitewater Ski Hill ~ rated some of the best powder in North America, and a 45 minute drive from Ainsworth Hot Springs.

The home is fully furnished and has a kitchen with fridge, coffee machine, toaster oven and hot plate. There is a large flatscreen tv (with movies, no cable) in the living area. Wireless internet access is included. There is a king size pullout bed in the living room and a king size bed in the bedroom. One block from the bus stop and one block from the trails, if you're not into driving, we are very accessible.

Come and enjoy the unique charm that makes this beautiful arts town one of the best in North America. The area surrounding Nelson is a paradise for mountain biking, skiing, hiking, climbing, boating, fishing and golfing. There is no shortage of great restaurants and cafes to get a taste of Nelson. You can also enjoy the many boutique shops, with locally produced goods; or browse the vendors in either of the two farmer's markets held each week (Wednesday and Saturday).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 'The House on the Hill'. It was easy to find , just straight up the street from downtown. The large beautifully furnished and well equipped house with a number of individual rooms allowed our large family of adult children, including two grandchildren, to spread out and gain privacy when needed. The large open area kitchen/dining/living room made it easy for us to gather together.

Large windows provide great views of the West Kootenay Valley. The grandkids thoroughly enjoyed the back deck and yard - the trampoline was a real highlight for them.

We will certainly consider staying there again - a perfect spot for a family reunion

Away from hustle and bustle

  • 4 of 5

Thanks Stephanie for the comfortable stay in the House on the Hill. It's an amazing hill with beautiful views when you step outside to take it all in. After a day exploring Ainsworth hotsprings and parts of Nelson, it was nice to come back to the little abode and enjoy one of the many DVD's that were available in the accommodation. Thanks again!

Lovely location

This quirky apartment was in a great spot with amazing views. We particularly appreciated the cool of the indoors on some very hot days.

An amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We initially planned to use Nelson as a stop over on our tour across BC. However, this town and accommodation went way beyond our expectations. Ourselves and the kids loved it. The memories of sitting out side the property with a cool drink, watching the sun set behind the mountain backdrop will remain with us forever...a very special place.

The accommodation was clean and well presented. We ate in both nights and managed to cook for 4 using the hotplate. There was a larder of basic supplies such as olive oil that was really useful. Lots of hot water and towels for after long days in the mountains or at the beach- would be an ideal winter base for a range of local ski resorts and back country opportunities. Accommodated 4 adults with ease.

Comfortable Downstairs Apartment in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed here on a week-long mountain biking trip to Nelson. Stephanie's downstairs apartment suited us great. The space is comfortable, clean, and right up the hill from downtown with some great evening sunsets. Stephanie was an extremely gracious host, and responded quickly to all of my correspondence. Thanks!

Awesome, highly recommend this little suite!

  • 5 of 5

Stephanie's place was perfect for our family. She was super friendly and helpful and her apartment was modern, clean and had everything we needed. An added bonus was her invitation to use her backyard trampoline, which our boys loved! Highly recommend this little suite for your stay in Nelson.
