Nakusp cottage description
Our property provides the athmosphere of a private secluded summer residence with beach. The cabin is in its private little orchard overlooking our lake front pasture and our private bay with beach. The location is has a beautiful deck where you can enjoy the sunset over the mountains.
The cabin is 900 sqft of very liveable space. It was originally built in 1991 and upgraded in 2009 and 2013. The cottage fits nicely into its natural environment. The cottage consists of an open living area with sofa and futon, an open kitchen, a newly renovated bathroom, a bedroom with closet and an entrance with laundry utilities.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a full size stove and oven, side by side fridge, dishwasher and microwave. The living room has a TV (just for playing DVD's since we have no satellite TV), a stereo with Ipod station a sofa and futon and a woodstove.
The bedroom has a queen size bed and a closet. The bathroom has a shower/tub. The entrance with laundry has closets and a washer and dryer.
A second smaller bedroom has a bunk bed and a closet. A deck is located on the west side of the cottage with beautful views over the pasture, beach and bay. A fence surrounds the cottage and some fruit trees build a little orchard. Take a few steps off the deck to a short path that leads you down through the pasture to the beach. In the boathouse you will find life jackets and noodles and some water toys. On the beach you can use our kayaks and canoes for explorations of lake and shoreline (no charge). There is also a swimming platform with ladder for a private sun tanning or for jumping into the lake. There is an older dock (please watch your steps) that provides a place to tie up a boat. Across the lake there is an island to explore and within a short hike also a waterfall. The property is a total of 100 acres and offers trails for hiking and exploration. Watch the Ospreys and Bald Eagles fish in our bay. There is always lots of wildlife around. Have fun!
In the winter you can usually snow shoe from the cottage. There is lot of wilderness to explore. Enjoy the back country and mountains with your snow mobile (please watch the avalanche reports). There is a lot of terrain in the Selkirks and Monashee mountains that is just used by our local snow mobil enthusiasts or find some hidden x-country trails. Winters are magical around the Arrow Lake with moderate temperatures and a lot of snow in the mountains. Backcountry ski exploration is a lot of fun.
Well behaved dogs that stay on the ground (not on sofas, beds etc.) are very welcome and if they do not run after wildlife can be kept without a leash. There is so much room to run around for dogs and with our rock bluff to the north and a meshed fence to the south it is quite safe. Our resident dog Pumpkin is very friendly.
