Field is a tiny remote mountain village, removed from the hustle and bustle of this popular tourist destination
Field is only accessible by private vehicle.
The Guest house was very welcoming. We loved our names being at the front door, so we knew we were expected. Apartment was well furnished, completely stocked and charming. Loved it. Walking distance to everything in town. Wonderful restaurant with fun bar and
neat people, too. Love the trains!
Helen was a very welcoming host. The accommodation was very comfortable and homely which was just what we needed towards the end of a long trip. Yoho National Park is very close and provided the most wonderful big day walk. Highly recommend a 20k route from Takkaka falls via Yoho river and Little Yoho Valley to the Iceline Trail. Very nice to dine on Helen's front deck with a takeaway salad from the very good Sidings Cafe when we returned.
This was a great place to stay for the four of us. It's a lovely apartment, well equipped and in a great location, just a few minutes walk to all the amenities in Field and at the heart of the wonderful Yoho national park which we all loved. Helen was so helpful not only in terms of the apartment but also through her knowledge of the locality and being part of Friends of Yoho. We would recommend this as one of our best ever Airbnb stays. Thanks Helen!
We had a wonderful stay at Helen's unique guest house. The accommodation was spacious, meeting all the needs of the guests who is there to enjoy the great outdoors. Of particular delight was the opportunity to sit outside and have some downtime after enjoying the wonderful walks in the area. Unfortunately we did not get the chance to meet Helen (being away herself) however she kindly arranged for the local neighbours to look after us. Helen's communication was always timely and supportive. We had a great time and would be happy to return. Enjoy this 5 star accommodation.
