About this listing
The Lotus House comprises the entire 2nd and 3rd floors of this 1912 heritage house and has a private entrance at the front. A large and luxurious master bedroom with a queen sleigh bed and large balcony overlooking the mountains, Kootenay lake and the town will make for an exceptionally comfortable and memorable stay. Two more elegant rooms furnished with antique bedroom sets dating back four generations are located on the second floor. You can relax in the cozy living space in the loft, complete with tv, vcr/dvd, and cd player. The bright, fully-equipped kitchen and dining area boast a tiled counter and antique furniture (with Kootenay Co-op only a couple of minutes away by foot, you'll have easy access to fresh organic foods).
The place was fantastic. Great location close to downtown. Quiet street. It was well stocked and had everything we needed. We will definitely look at booking again.
We loved our stay at Lotus House! It was exactly as described and felt like a home away from home. We loved the character feel of the home and the location is great being so close to town. Would definitely recommend the place for a stay in Nelson!
The house is in a fantastic location for being able to walk around the heart of Nelson. It was clean, full of character, and well-stocked to make a stay very enjoyable. It would be very comfortable for up to three couples to share. It was everything the listing suggested and more. We were very happy there!
What a great stay! The place was super charming and comfortable. The location was perfect. The correspondence with the hosts was wonderful. I'd stay there again!
Really enjoyed our week stay at the Lotus House: quiet, well equipped, and very convenient location to walk to town or down to the river. The attic bedroom has beautiful views. The house is very private even though it is the upper level of a 1912 heritage building. John was very friendly and communication was easy. The house is located 5 min walk to Baker Street - there are lots of cafes and unique stores. Loved the mosaic windows. If we go back to Nelson we would really like to stay there again.
The Lotus House est une maison pittoresque que nous avons tous vraiment appréciée. Elle est calme, propre et située dans un quartier tranquille à quelques pas du centre de Nelson. Les propriétaires nous ont donné toutes les informations nécessaires afin d'y accéder.
We came to Lotus House for a long overdue "girls getaway". Lotus House was perfect! Comfortable beds, a well equipped kitchen, lot's of hot water and an all round welcoming atmosphere. The instructions we were given for the house were very clear and easy to follow. The weather changed while we were there and our host was quick to help us turn up the heat when we asked. The location was excellent for walking into the downtown for sightseeing and food. The internet worked well. I recommended it to several Nelson residents who were looking for accommodation for guests… I hope to return again myself!
About the Host, John
I am a retired college instructor. My wife and I have lived in Nelson for over thirty years. We love Nelson but we also love to travel. Lotus House will be our home when we get too old to handle the big family house we raised our children in.
