The Space

(Traduction en Français un peu plus bas)
This accommodation is a quiet, private, room for your stay in Nelson; it is centrally located, has a comfortable queen size bed and is just a few footsteps away from a self-catering kitchenette and a shared bathroom in the main house. This lovely accommodation is 10 minutes’ walk from downtown Nelson, 20 minutes’ drive to the ski hill and 40 minutes’ drive to the local Hot Springs. Easy access to nature walk, hikes and fabulous mountain bike trails. There is a public park and public transit just around the street corner. All amenities are smoke free. One cat named Ti-Lou lives in the main house, he is not allowed in your space, if you are worried about allergies. We have a large backyard to unwind from busy travel, plenty of berries to pick in the summer and enough snow to build snow forts in the winter! We welcome other families. This room is ideal if you prefer to save your money for all the exciting and fun adventures that traveling the Kootenay’s offers, yet still require and value a warm, safe and private “home base” with comfortable bed, clean and quiet spaces.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Nous avons très apprécié notre séjour au gîte l'Hirondelle de montagne. Les locaux (chambre, cuisinette et salle de bain) sont propres, l'environnement est très tranquille et les hôtes sont sympathiques et respectueux. Chantal fait preuve de belles petites attentions discrètes mais fort appréciées. Par exemple, lors de notre arrivée, elle laisse dans la cuisinette des victuailles pour le 1e petit déjeuner: lait, œufs, crème, céréales, tranches de pain, confitures, jus d'orange, thé/tisane, café fraîchement moulu de chez Osso Negro (petite brûlerie de Nelson) accompagné de l'adresse de la place). Dans la salle de bain, des huiles et savons et un dépliant avec adresse d'un salon de thé et Spa.
    Dans la chambre, en plus des peignoirs et crocs pour nous accommoder lorsque nous avons à traverser de la chambre à la cuisinette ou à la salle de bain, Chantal laisse dans la chambre des cartes de la places et plusieurs dépliants et magazines d'information sur Nelson et les activités des environs. Le lit est confortable. Les thermostats pour le chauffage est à notre disposition et se règle rapidement au besoin donc nous sommes très bien au niveau de m température des locaux. La cuisinette est très bien équipée. La maison n'est pas très loin du motel 4-points ( ~ 10 min. de marche); dernier arrêt du shuttle pour Whitemountain. Chantal est une excellente hôtesse: facile à rejoindre (p.ex. quand on oublie sa clé à l'intérieur de la chambre) et pas envahissante du tout. Le fait que la chambre soit séparée du reste de la maison et la cuisine à part un peu en retrait du reste de la maison, nous donne plus d'intimité.
    Bon choix de gîte. Nous le recommandons fortement.

  • This was an ideal place to regroup after some time in the wild! Chantal was warm and welcoming and the accommodation was perfect: the cabin was quiet and cozy and beautiful, and the kitchenette was perfectly equipped for a couple of very enjoyable meals. The fresh, locally produced coffee was a particular highlight! Thank you so much again, Chantal - I shall recommend your place to anyone heading to Nelson.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Mountain Swallow. The room was very lovely and comfortable and the exterior was absolutely charming with all the fresh covered snow. Chantal was very attentive to our well-being and provided us with pleasant little snacks in our kitchen. We positively recommend this accommodation to anyone!

  • My experience at Chantels place was great! The cottage is so beautiful and the outside space was quaint and very enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this place to others. Chantel was an excellent host, and went above and beyond, with little extras like fresh milk, homemade jam, and bagels in the kitchenette for us on arrival. Great experience!

  • Chantal is a wonderful hostess, who provided a very neat, clean, comfortable and private room with a recently installed air conditioner that was a God send during the heat of the days I stayed there. The secluded gazebo, with comfortable chairs next to the room, provided a wonderful retreat for reading and enjoying the great weather during my stay.

    One morning I wanted to leave early for a ride and on request Chantal provided some cereal and fruit in the well equipped kitchenette so I could eat and run the next morning. This was much appreciated and over and above what was offered by Chantal for the stay.

    The bathroom is in the main house, accessed conveniently from the rear door a few steps from the room I stayed in. A screen in the hallway ensures privacy and I did not feel like I was intruding when I used the bathroom/shower.

    It was a much enjoyed stay and I look forward to future stays on my travels through the Kootenays. I would certainly recommend Chantal's place for anyone looking for a quite, secluded place in Nelson with good access to all the area offers.

  • Mountain Swallow has a GREAT set-up and Chantal was a fantastic host!

    It it is a beautiful home in a nice residential location, not far from town. The room is in a new and very clean and comfortable little cabin in the pretty backyard, and there is a path from the cabin accessing a private kitchenette that was fully stocked (including popcorn and locally roasted coffee). It was the perfect arrangement for us since we had a baby along and didn't want to wake up the whole house.

    Superb value - we will definitely stay there again if Chantal is still in "the business" next time we are in Nelson.

  • My husband, 9-month old son and I stayed at Chantal's during our 5-day stay in Nelson, BC, and we couldn't have had a better experience. She welcomed us with fresh berries in the fridge and bagels and cereal for breakfast the next day (not to mention coffee!), in addition to homemade jams. She had helpful suggestions about things to do in the area and her favorite hikes. Overall our stay was incredibly pleasant and her property was beautiful and relaxing. The room was very clean and comfortable, the kitchenette wonderful to have, and the shared bathroom not a burden in any way. Definitely recommend staying here, warm hospitality and a great price!

    July 2013
  • Chantal was friendly and welcoming, and the room was very cozy and peaceful. It was great to have a self-contained cabin at the back of the garden to sleep in, and a separate entrance to the kitchenette and bathroom in the main house. Chantal left us muffins, homemade jam & coffee for breakfast, which we got to enjoy in a sunny garden. I'd stay here again!

    July 2013
  • Chantal was a great host. The little cabin was impeccable and wonderful. The bath and kitchenette served our purposes extremely well. She even provided us with some great local coffee. It was a pleasant and convenient place from which to base our adventure in Nelson.

    July 2013
  • We can highly recommend this place, we had a fantastic stay. There is such love and detail in the guesthouse. Very clean, very private. There is a private kitchen included were we could cook whenever we want, plus a nice terrace and a lovely garden.
