Boswell cottage description

This very special Kootenay Lake property has a unique appeal due to the location and panoramic views. Boswell boasts of a warmer mini climate all of its own due to a phenomena called the Banana Belt. The acreage's private setting is surrounded by crown land and its artistic touch makes it a local gem. Kootenay Lake is exquisite being 3 km wide in places and 90 km long, a dream for the sports enthusiast, a boat ramp just 1 km away and the local store, 1 km the other direction.

A lovely feature is the crown land below the property that has a trail and private beaches. The pure natural spring water is licensed for this property only and is ample for the three one bedroom hand crafted Cottages. These three accommodations come fully furnished, each has special character and they have all been recently renovated. Most folk call it Paradise!

Keywords: cabin, casita, bungalow, cottage.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1991

                  About the owner: I manage the property entirely myself so everything has my personal touch of how I love what I do and why I am here. Keeping the land is important to me and is important to the greater good of all. The Cottage guests are supporting my dream and I enjoy meeting them from all their walks of life.

                  Why the Owner Chose Boswell:
                  I have been living along Kootenay Lake for over 30 years. This is where I raised my children and it has been a very rich lifestyle that involves a close knit community and a lot of gardening, nature, outdoors and natural beauty everywhere. I have created a lot of art both indoor and out and many plans for sacred space for the following seasons like a large TiPi for gatherings and ponds. I do enjoy leaving for the winter months to travel and to stay in San Carlos, Mexico. My Cottages are then available for long term renters to have an immersion for writing, studying or an immersion into the lifestyle of Kootenay Lake's milder climate.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  My benefits personally are the peace and quietude, being closer to nature and to have a fully integral life that reflects everything I am about. People who visit here absolutely agree that it is exactly what they were looking for, a quiet getaway to find clarity and contentment, a place for self reflection and awareness of their own resourcefulness.
