Our chalet has water and electricity and is designed to provide beauty, comfort and functionality, while minimizing your footprint. Made from natural, local, eco-friendly materials, it provides you with spacious, relaxing and nurturing interiors, with stunning views. Unwind with toasty in-floor heating, the unsurpassed romance of a wood stove and a fully equipped kitchen with gas stove. It is a dog friendly place.

Nestled at the foot of the Selkirk Mountains, with four queen and two twin beds, the hut accommodates groups of 2 to 8 people.

Whether you are an adrenaline junky or a slow snow enthusiast, whether you want to climb mountains and hurtle down at great speed or simply relax and enjoy the beautiful alpine vistas, Kootenay Huts offer the ideal setting.

Our hut is located close enough to Nelson for guests to take advantage of its great shopping, fine dining and lively nightlife, yet secluded enough to allow them to be close to nature and wilderness, view magnificent starry skies and listen to the coyotes.

With two bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, a large and accommodating common room (living/dining room), and a washroom with shower, the chalet can comfortably house up to 10 people. The two identical rooms of the cabin can each sleep two couples in comfortable bunk Queen beds and one person in a single bed.

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: Guy and Chris are outdoor enthusiasts who love to ski, bike, hike, run, climb, explore and just enjoy nature. They also happen to be triathletes and marathoners.

                      Why the Owner Chose Nelson:
                      Guy and Chris, originally from Quebec, moved to the Kootenays over ten years ago to enjoy the finest outdoor experience there is. They built the Kootenay Huts in the last year to share their love of the area and offer the opportunity to soak in the Kootenay mountain culture in a relaxed and peaceful setting. Their extensive outdoor experience guided the design of the chalet.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      Get a complete mountain experience! Spend the nights of your daily adventures in the easily accessible but yet secluded nature spot. Cook for yourself, feel the wildlife around you, enjoy the organic feel of the chalet. Feed a log to the woodstove and keep your life simple.
