Our beautiful self contained cabin is the perfect getaway. We are 15 minutes from Whitewater and 20 minutes from Nelson.
If you are looking for a place to relax after a day on the hill this is it. With our king size bed, jetted two person tub and amazing stars.. this is the perfect retreat. We are also only 10 minutes from Salmo ski hill and 45 minutes from Red Mountain and cross country trails right outside the door.
The bedroom has a comfy king size bed. The bathroom has a heated slate floor and a two person jetted tub. It is the perfect way to relax after a long day of skiing or hiking.
The kitchen has a fridge, toaster, toaster oven hotplate, pots coffee maker and dishes.
Ymir is the perfect place to be super active outdoors, or super mellow with a stroll by the river.
In the winter...
We are 15 minutes from Whitewater Ski resort, and about 45 minutes from Red Mountain. There is cross country skiing minutes from our place on the Rails to Trails, a decommissioned rail line, which runs 30+ km. through Ymir from Salmo to Nelson.
Ymir is a unique and beautiful town, laid back and relaxing.There is a general store here that has amazing baked goods and some basic provisions, also there is an eclectic pub with off-sales that (email hidden).
In the summer...
A beautiful clean river is only steps away, you can swim or fish in it. Incredible mountain biking, hiking or strolling a converted rail bed that is now an amazing trail that runs right to Nelson.
Guests have the entire cabin. The cabin has its own separate driveway and all windows are oriented to the forest. It is like having your own little house.
We provide our guests with lots of information on the area in the cabin then we leave them to have their own experience. The cabin is on our property but we value our privacy and our guests' privacy above all, so we do not contact them unless they let us know that they need something.
We loved staying at Carla's cabin. We found the accommodation to be exactly as expected. The cabin was clean, the bed comfortable & warm & the double size bath tub sublime. We appreciated that their were no personal items in the cabin. There was plenty of hot water & did I say that the bath was sublime?
We would definitely stay again.
Carla was great. The place was easy to access and great location to Whitewater resort. There was internet, but no cable TV or cell phone service. It would have been nice to have TV since the olympics were on, but otherwise it was fine. The kitchen is very basic but we managed to cook a few meals on the hot plate. The bed was very comfortable but there is no shower in the bathroom.
We had an excellent stay in Ymir. Carla's place was fabulous and the skiing was great. We had an excellent weekend.
Hope this isn't TOO cliche, but I don't want to tell anyone where I stayed so I can always have this place available to me! Sweetest little town with the nicest people, picturesque scenery, and the cabin is clean and cozy. The jetted tub and heated bathroom floors are great and thank you Carla for providing cooking utensils for our New Years meal and letting us know of the celebrations going on in town. It truly was a delight and we'll be back for sure - maybe for the festival?? :)
Carla was an excellent host. The cabin is beautiful and perfect for a quiet getaway in the mountains. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to my friends.
We had a perfect stay in Carla and Shawn's cabin in the beautiful Kootenays. Carla was very helpful beforehand, offering clear directions and information about the area. They were both lovely and friendly upon our arrival and made us feel very welcome. The cabin itself is in the most beautiful and relaxing location and everything was just so quiet and peaceful. It is very clean and has been furnished and decorated to a very high standard. There is a huge tub in the bathroom with jets which is awesome! Ymir is tiny but charming. We had a great time staying there, only wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks Shawn and Carla!
Carla and Shawn have the cutest cabin! It was quiet and private, and the town of Ymir is lovely. The location of their cabin allowed us to explore the beautiful kootenay's of BC...truly amazing. Just 20 min to Nelson, which is a fabulous city! Highly recommended. The hosts were available when needed and knew to let us have our privacy. The bath tub was amazing!!!! Will definitely be back.
