Andrew and Maureen were very welcoming upon our arrival. They were happy and easy going right from the start. They gave us a tour of their gorgeous home and the lay of the land so we would feel comfortable in our surroundings And boy did we ever feel at home and part of their family with our 110pound rotsky, Star from the beginning til the end.
Beyond accommodating and gracious, we cannot wait to visit this summer. We miss you already!

Andrew and Maureen are wonderful hosts!!! They made our stay super enjoyable and were so kind right from the start. My boyfriend and I were able to bring our dog with us and it was great that she had a little friend to play with. Their dog Kanu was so cute and a great playmate. All 3 of us enjoyed our stay and it was in large part to Maureen and Andrew. They were very informative about the surrounding area and gave great advice on where to eat and what to do. The amenities of the home like the fireplace and hot tub really made the trip that much more enjoyable. Thanks again!!!
Andrew and Maureen's gorgeous home was pure joy to stay in! They are both fabulously interesting people and made us feel as welcome as dear family friends visiting for the weekend. Every amenity and detail is attended to in their home, from the hot tub to the warm outdoor fireplace, to the wonderful tea and coffee choices, to the lovely soaps Maureen makes herself. We loved the privacy of having our own wing of the house. Be sure to ask Andrew to sing you a tune and play his guitar -- he's as talented as he is generous. Five stars!
We had a delightful stay with Andrew and Maureen. We felt very welcome. We enjoyed being in their new and very modern home which was beautifully decorated as well as having a very good design. We shared some meals with the hosts and really enjoyed the views of the lake. We learned a good deal about the house and the surrounding area. The house is quiet, spacious and comfortable and I would recommend it highly.
Myself, my husband and 3 year old daughter loved this place. The house is stunning, the kitchen was amazing and having a private beach on the lake was fantastic. Andrew and Maureen were wonderful hosts - tasty breakfast, comfortable beds, and very accommodating and friendly. Our daughter loved kayaking on the lake and chasing around the dog and cat. We came back home well rested and wanting to head back for more.
We just got back from spending five nights at Andrew and Maureens beachfront home at Longbeach in Nelson. They both made us feel at home and were most accomodating during our stay with them. Their property is gorgeous with a wide expansive white sand beach and large boat dock and amazing views of the lake and surrounding mountains. The room we chose had a memory foam mattress so we slept so comfortably. Our room had a separate entrance and private door out to the large deck and hot tub. Their house is beautifully decorated and modern with large patios doors leading our onto the deck. They were so kind and trusting allowing us to prepare meals in their gorgeous well appointed kitchen. We simply had a wonderful time there and are looking forward to our next visit!
This was by far our best B&B stay ever! Andrew and Maureen's home was amazing. Opening their home so we could have extended family BBQ and allowing us to use their boat for an extra room was above and beyond what any host would do and we truly appreciated it! The late night jam session was something we will never forget. Thank you for making our stay one we will talk about for years to come. We recommend this B&B to all of our family and friends. Thank you again. Brad, Lisa, Marie, Matt, Ashley, Bev and Doug.

About the Host, Andrew And Maureen
My wonderful wife Maureen and I are thrilled to be able to live in the Kootenays.
We've both been in the area for about 30 years and raised our 2 children in this vibrant and artsy community. We finished our dream home on the shores of Kootenay Lake and are now ready to share this one of a kind experience with others. We are easy going and respectful. We are fairly new to the BnB experience but we are excited for the opportunity to meet people from other places. Andrew is involved in the window covering business and Maureen is retired from Canada Post. We look forward to hosting you in our home on the lake.
