                                              Magically Unique!~

                                              Kathleen S.

                                              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.

                                              Owner's Response:

                                              We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

                                              Amazing Vacation

                                              Jen E.Vancouver

                                              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!!

                                              Joanne N.Calgary

                                              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.

                                              Beautiful Nelson

                                              Gordie L.Canmore, AB, Canada

                                              Excellent waterfront location with awesome views of Nelson; very private. House is modern and functional. Great firepit! Owner answered any inquiries very quickly. Highly recommend.

                                              Fantastic stay in paradise!

                                              Dave A.Victoria

                                              How could it get better? Cozy, every room with a view and lots of wonderful extras. Comfortable beds. We made use of the canoe and kayaks - so accessible. Dining on the deck to relive the day's hike (within 45 minutes of dozens of options - go to Kokanee Lake!). When the rain came we were snug inside playing games and reading. Wonderful retreat. One caveat - the property is steep so walking to the beach may be difficult for some.

                                              Andrew B.Calgary

                                              This was a fantastic property, unrivaled views and so close to Nelson.

                                              Highly recommended!!
