Our newly renovated suite with private bath and micro kitchen is ideal for a couple or a small family.
It's attached to the main house but you have your own private entrance and can come and go as you please.
The suite has two queen sized beds. One is a day bed. It can be pulled out into a queen with two separate single mattresses.
The room is suitable for up to 4 and spacious for up to 3 people.
Kids under the age of 16 stay for free with at least one paying adult. A cot for infants can be provided.
The house is located in a residential neighbourhood between the down town and the beach at Lakeside Park. It's an around 15 minute walk either way, through a residential neighbourhood.
We might be able to pick you up from the Greyhound bus stop or Castlegar airport for a small fee.
We added a micro kitchen for your convenience. It is tiny with a counter top induction cook top, a toaster oven and microwave. There is also a k'cup coffee maker, kettle, toaster, crock pot and so on. The fridge is located a step away from your door in a storage area, so you won't have to listen to it's compressor during the night. It can be moved inside the room for people who prefer that and stay longer than a night. So you're good for some light cooking, for more elaborate meals you'd have to use our kitchen in the main house, please inquire.
There is a possibility to rent a bike or our 4 person canoe.
If you need anything else (like kids toys, an ironing board, beach towels, anything along those lines) please ask.
Nelson is a beautiful town, we'd like you to enjoy your stay.
The space we're providing is self contained. However we don't limit guest access to the room. We provide storage in our basement and open up our house to people who have the time, interest and flexibility to join in.
Interaction with Guests
Up to you really, but I guess it would also depend on our schedule and how busy life is at the time.
We request that no one smokes inside the house please.
Also please don't store bikes or skis/snowboards inside your room.
Please ask if storage is required. We don't mind to share our basement.
Please ensure you book for the right amount of guests at the time of booking so we put out the right amount of linen etc.
Liam and I spent an amazing 7 weeks in Nelson for a snowboarding season, we stayed in Marianne & Doug's Tree House Studio for the whole time and it was just Perfect! We arrived by bus to Nelson which was 2 hours late, when we got out Doug was there waiting to take us home. The location is perfect, It's a short 5-10 minute walk to Safeway where Liam and I also hitched most mornings to whitewater ski resort and a 20 minute walk to Baker Street where there is lots of beautiful restaurants and cafes! The Yellow Deli is a must when your visiting Nelson. Every where in Nelson is walking distance.
The room is big enough for 2 people with no worries, the bed was so comfortable, the kitchen facilities are great we cooked a lot of meals as we stayed a long time. You have a toaster, kettle, blender, coffee machine, great cooktop, microwave and oven with plenty of plates & cutlery. There is everything you need for cooking if your planning on staying for a while and everything works really well.
The bathroom is roomy and the shower is big and works perfect. The room feels very new and was very clean when we arrived. Marianne was great through our stay and done some light cleaning once a week changing our sheets and towels. The wifi was great we never had an issue.
Marianne, Doug, Jamie & Miya are great Hosts, such lovely people and such a lovely family. We can not thank them enough for making our stay one we won't forget.
Doug gave us lifts to Whitewater on Saturdays and we shared some lovely family time over a couple of dinners.
Nelson is such a friendly, chilled out place with so much to see and do, you will be very happy with your stay with Doug & Marianne.
Jamie, Liam misses your hockey games all ready. Once again thank you all for your perfect hospitality and kindness.
See you all in the near future and remember you are all welcome to come visit us in Australia.
Till next time
Jenna & Liam xoxo
Staying at the treehouse studio was like a home away from home. Perfect for the 2 of us during our stay in Nelson.
We found it very spacious and comfortable, and our hosts incredibly friendly and accommodating, like staying with family!
Wish we could have stayed longer!
This was the perfect place for us,..we did not need a lot of cooking items ,as we were here visiting our daughter& family . The neighborhood was quiet,..and it was very nice to have a space to park our car.
Our hosts provided us with an additional local phone for our use as we were awaiting the birth of another grandchild!
The place was very clean & roomy ,.it met our all our needs.
Thank you , Marianne &Doug

Absolutely amazing little unit! The place was very clean and welcoming! Marianne was very nice host! Highly recommended
This was hands down, the best experience I've had with an airbnb rental. It was very cozy and comfortable and the pictures on this site don't do it justice. It was also nearby downtown Nelson which made it very easy to access many of the stores and restaurants the city had to offer. I will definitely rent this apartment again the next time I am in Nelson. Thanks again, Marianne!
Great stay....self contained unit and completely private. Easy to find and close to everything in Nelson. Hope to be back in near future....Thanks again.
We were very happy with our experience at Marianne and Doug's place. The space was very clean and well kept. The room is bigger than it appears online, which is great! Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.
I've been international all my life, I was born in Romania and immigrated to Germany as a kid, I'm married to Doug from the UK and live in beautiful Nelson, BC, Canada, loving it.
We are blessed with two children (f1998 and m2005).
We like to travel, explore and be active. Maya and I also love to read.
We ski and board in winter and hike, paddle and camp in summer. We like to live a simple life, as low impact as we can.
We are interested in learning from others and sharing ideas.
