Nakusp studio description

Serenity Views is located in the Kootenays on the shores of the Arrow Lakes with breathtaking views of the lake and mountains and close to two Hot Springs facilities which are open year-round. Serenity Views is a unique lodging and recreation facility catering to those who seek a secluded retreat, as well as to those wanting easy access to all amenities. It is designed to meet the needs of most travellers by providing excellent lodging, friendly service, and an enriching experience with long lasting wellness benefits.

Nestled in the forest on a 4-acre property allows for individual taste in recreation and retreat. The newly built 550 sq. ft. studio suite provides complete living accommodation. It has a fully equipped kitchen, wireless Internet and cable television and sleeps 4 persons. There is access to outdoor living, pathways, and lakeside recreation. Our guests have privacy and the sense of freedom to enjoy the area in their own personal way.

The magnificent natural location provides an ideal setting for outdoor living whether you want to relax, meditate, paint, or just watch the changing moods and colors of the mountains and lake. A paradise for bird watchers and photographers, the area is rich in wildlife with osprey, eagles, a variety of waterfowl, woodpeckers and deer.

Serenity Views is located just 5 minutes from the Village of Nakusp with all amenities. From our property, take a beautiful 15 minute drive up a paved mountain highway to Nakusp Hot Springs or drive to Halycon Hot Springs, just 20 minutes away. Wherever you go, the scenery is magnificent and people are friendly.

In summer, enjoy wonderful hiking, boating, fishing, golf and swimming. The beautiful sandy public beach is only 5 minutes away. From here enjoy a stroll down the promenade along the lake, just a block from shopping and restaurants. There is also a public boat launch and docks if you bring your power boat.

NEW: Guests of Serenity Views can rent our canoe, single person kayaks or paddleboat to further enjoy the beautiful lake.

In the winter, enjoy snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country, downhill, and heli-skiing followed by a soak in the Hot Springs, or just come for the health benefits of enjoying the Hot Springs along with the peaceful and friendly atmosphere.

Fishing in the Arrow Lakes is great in all seasons - winter fishing is spectacular and fishing charters can be booked locally.

For the more active traveler, we encourage exploration of the many facilities and activities around Nakusp and the surrounding communities such as golfing, water sports, hiking, back country exploring, museums, historic sites and unique shopping and restaurants.

For those who wish a tranquil experience, Serenity Views offers secluded and quiet locations to relax, meditate, and find renewal. Enjoy the pleasant walks on private forested land or lakeshore, the beautiful scenery, fantastic views and nature in all its glory.

For the artisan we provide a quiet and serene environment. You are encouraged to use the property for inspiration with several areas designated for application of your work.

We also have a camping cabin on our property. If the Studio Suite is not available and you would like a 'rustic' holiday experience, please contact us for more details.

Our service is designed to provide more than lodging. It is a rejuvenating life experience.
