About this listing
Our lovely timber frame cabin in the town of Ymir minutes away from Whitewater Ski Resort and Red Mountain. It is ideally suited for a couple, with a cozy king bed and a two person jacuzzi tub in a well appointed bathroom with a heated slate floor.
Our beautiful self contained cabin is the perfect getaway. We are 10 minutes from Whitewater Ski Resort turn off and and close enough to Nelson to enjoy its amenities but far enough to get away...
If you are looking for a place to relax after a day of skiing, snowboarding, back country or just looking for quiet getaway, this is it. With our king size bed, jetted two person tub and amazing stargazing, this is the perfect retreat. Ymir is central in the Kootenays with easy access to Whitewater, Red Mountain and Salmo Ski Hill and the US border.
The kitchen has a fridge, toaster, toaster oven, hotplate, pots coffee maker and dishes plus a small BBQ for use outdoors.
Ymir is the perfect place to be super active outdoors, or slower paced cross country ski or 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 steps away from our front door on the Rails to Trails, a decommissioned rail line, which runs 30+ km. through Ymir from Salmo to Nelson. Back country ski for the more adventurous can be accessed by snow cat from Ymir.
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 railway bed that is now an amazing trail that runs right 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 closes at 9 pm.
Guests have the entire cabin. The cabin has its own separate driveway and windows are oriented to the forest. It is like having your own little house in the woods.
Interaction with Guests
We provide our guests with lots of information on the area in the cabin and 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.
Ymir is an incredible town, with just the right amount of everything you need. There is an amazing general store "The Goods" that offers fresh baking, groceries, espresso and colourful locals, an odd small town BC pub and even an organic food store.
Ymir is 20 km south of Nelson on Highway 6.
Absolutely no pets, no exceptions.
Strict no smoking policy.
Amazing cross country skiing from the door of the cabin on 30 kilometres of rail bed, from Salmo to Nelson.
