I grew up in Nelson and have stayed in many locations when my family and I have come for vacation. This is by far the best location! It is like a spa retreat! I would highly recommend it.
Thank you for staying with us at Hideaway Lakefront Forest Guesthouse. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
Fabulous, well-appointed and well-located summer retreat.
Absolutely amazing, secluded home right on the lake with no direct neighbors. Private and sunny with great views, a dock, kayaks, a canoe and paddle board for water fun. Close to Pulpit Rock for a quick workout and well located for other Kootenay hiking adventures, cycling and touring.
Karen is wonderful and easy to contact. She had great local tips.
We had no problems at all. Everything was clean and in good repair. Fresh flowers in all the rooms and a fresh bag of Oso Negro coffee in the pantry on our arrival were very thoughtful and appreciated touches.
beautiful house and gardens on the lake
This lovely home with its beautiful views of the mountains, the lake, and Nelson suited our needs very well. Its location was perfect for our day trips to Kaslo, New Denver and
Castlegar, with great access to parks, hiking trails, and rail trails for biking. The house is also great for just staying in and enjoying the many comfortable sitting areas, both inside and out. For us, the patio under the deck was particularly nice, as it is sheltered from both sun and rain and looks into the pretty garden and over the lake. The house is very clean and nicely furnished, and the kitchen is bright, spacious, and well equipped with good dishes and cooking utensils. Everything worked well, including the internet. The house would be good for two couples. The two bedrooms are spaced well apart, with one on the top floor and the other on the lowest level. Both have nice views. As there are five levels, there are a lot of stairs, and it's also a bit of a walk down the hill to the beach. This would be a consideration for people with mobility difficulties. Be sure to heed the advice about the switchbacks on the driveway, but there's plenty of space at the bottom to turn a car around. I would definitely recommend this property.
Thank you for choosing our home and property for your vacation Jennifer. We look forward to hosting you again when you return to Nelson.
This property is so special and has to be seen in person to appreciate the various unique nooks and crannies of the property. There is beautiful rock/stone work on various levels as well as countless flowers and trees along with a stream running down the hill into a pond at the bottom. I explored a little every day and kept finding things I hadn't seen before. Although we didn't get a chance to use the canoe and kayaks, we walked down to the beach every day. The house is very nice - well maintained with everything you can think of to make your stay comfortable. The owner is very responsive to questions. We loved our days exploring Nelson, taking the car ferry in Balfour, hiking through various parks and forest areas enjoying nature and searching for waterfalls. We had a wonderful week and would highly recommend to anyone. The only thing I would add is that the house is 5 floors so lots of steps plus steps to and from garage and the lawn down to beach is steep. We had no issue whatsoever but it might be difficult for people with certain medical conditions.
Thank you. We are so happy that you enjoyed your vacation while staying at our VRBO.
We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
Karen and family.
Outstanding location right on the lake with perfect beach for the kids to play and access to canoe and kayaks for exploring! Amazing property with beautiful gardens and the house is well equipped, clean and comfortable. Huge windows with incredible views and a big deck off the main living area for lounging and sitting by outdoor fire. Loved it and highly recommend!!
It was a magical holiday by the lake visiting with family. Every detail was attended to and the setting was exquisite. Both the house and the gardens were beautiful.
