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!

Children are certainly welcome but with particular risks for parents to be clear about. There are staircases and banks and swings from trees for them to navigate and soon there will be ponds, so parents do need to take responsablity for these features that can be of some danger to youngsters....moreless
I take pets but need this discussed before a booking. The property is well suited to dogs of all ages and sizes and they can run free as long as they are socialized. Clean up of pet waste is the owners responsibility. ...moreless

A little piece of Paradise
A little piece of Paradise
We just couldn't be happier with this rental. From the beginning, Beth provided us with all kinds of information, she was very helpful and kind. I was a little leery of renting a cabin without having seen it, but everything was as described and better. The cabin comes equipped with everything you will need to have a fabulous, relaxing, and peaceful stay. We were pleasantly surprised with some goodies in the fridge, along with fresh flowers - a very nice touch. The lake is a short walk away, down a neat trail (the hike back up great exercise :) Satellite TV, Internet worked well, BBQ on deck, wood stove, and the kids loved the bed in the loft. You couldn't ask for a nicer view from the deck while relaxing and having a morning coffee - mountains and lake paint a portrait-worthy view. The cabin was very clean and tastefully decorated. We definitely hope to come back soon. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise with us!!!

My husband and I had a lovely 3 day retreat here in the Modern Retro Cottage. Beautiful lake view, very nice accommodation with everything you would want in a cottage. Everything is clean and comfortable. We walked along the beach, went up to see the Arrowsmith Gallery, and the Lockhart Provincial Park's beach for a picnic. But otherwise it was just nice to relax with a book and beautiful scenery on our deck. I had the added bonus of being able to do some water-colour painting alongside of Beth who is a talented artist. Thanks for your patience and guidance! What a good way to spend some quality time! Thanks also for sharing from your garden. We appreciate too that our dog was welcome. Thanks again, Beth!

We've just come back from staying in the Rustic Cabin and it was terrific! The view was spectacular, the cabin was so comfortable and homey we loved it! Beth was a fantastic host, everything we needed was available, she left some breakfast goodies for us, fresh flowers and herbs from her garden. The cabin had everything we needed, it was so comfortable, we felt right at home. Our dog had a ball roaming the property and playing with Finn! She loved it! Thank you for making our stay so wonderful, we'll definately come back!

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.
