This is a beautiful southwest facing one acre retreat with a creek running through the property. It is a ten drive from Nelson, BC. There is lots of privacy in this natural setting. A regional park on Kootenay river is less than a five minute drive away and a canoe and two kayaks are available to explore the many beaches of the local lakes in this pristine mountainous area. The two bedroom/one bathroom house is of post and beam construction with many large windows that create spaciousness and provide lots of light. One of the bedrooms has a gas fireplace and there is a wood fireplace in the living room. Electric heat is also supplied. Ski weeks are available during ski season. There are two popular ski hills within a 45 minute drive to either hill. There is a six person hot tub on the property. A great spot to relax after a day of skiing or hiking.
Nelson is a small heritage town with many local artisans and craftsmen displaying their arts and crafts in the many local restaurants that support a wide variety of cuisines. There is a natural hotsprings with a cave overlooking Kootenay Lake an easy day's drive from Nelson. There are many scenic mountainous drives within a days drive as well.

If you are looking for a great location to stay in Nelson, this is a beauty place...perfect for a romantic adventure like we had! Wood burning fireplace, hot tub, kitchen, windows all around, beautiful view and very private. You need a vehicle as it is located about 10 min out of Nelson. It was perfect! Thank you Marjorie for letting us celebrate our anniversary at your wonderful place :)
We rented Marjorie's house for a few days over Christmas at the end of our exploration of the "powder highway" and we're really glad we did. It was a wonderful white Christmas in Nelson. Coming in after skiing Whitewater to the ease of making a roaring fire (supplied with plentiful firewood), relaxing in the hot tub out in the snow, and cooking dinner on the gas stove, was perfect. This is a great house--warm, relaxing, clean and very comfortable. We were lucky to stay here. We hope to come back for longer sometime.
We had a terrific time at Marjorie's beautiful, relaxing home!
Very lovely location - photos don't do it justice! Majorie is an excellent hostess and very accommodating to ensure we had a great experience! So peaceful and serene!! Definitely visit again.
My family found Marjorie's wonderful home at the last minute and couldn't believe it was still available. She was incredibly helpful and a wonderful host.
The house itself is a beautifully decorated post and beam home with wonderful earthy colors and the smell of cedar and wonderful hardwood floors set in a little oasis of forest with the ever present sounds of the creek out the many wonderful windows. Bliss! Nelson is an incredible town with excellent restaurants and wonderful natural beauty and sandy beaches are plentiful on the lake. Our favorite adventure was visiting the nearby Ainsworth Hot Springs for a soak in the wonderful hot spring filled tunnels relaxing against the flowstone and listening the the water cascade into the caves. We will be back and highly recommend this home.
Beautiful place near Nelson. The pictures don't do it justice, very cozy and clean. Highly recommended.
Awesome., Nelson is beautiful and the property was more than we expected. Highly recommended
My family and I (elderly mother, sister and her two kids - age 8 and 14) came to stay at Marjorie's cabin for 1 week. We were her first guests through Air BnB and her place was absolutely beautiful. The cabin itself exceeded our expectations. It is rustic enough to give you that "cabin in the woods" feel but very upgraded and pleasant. The property has a beautiful little waterfall with a bridge going overtop of it that is very relaxing. My sister and I did yoga on the bridge every morning! The property is only a short drive to downtown Nelson so is very convenient! Marjorie is very nice and did a great job of creating a great vacation getaway.
