There is a natural and artistic feel to the town and it's inhabitants which makes visitors feel welcome and at home. The waterfront walkway and beaches are all within easy access, as is our fabulous recreation center, numerous yoga centres, and a multitude of body care practitioners. Our knee deep powder Whitewater Ski Resort is just 15 minutes from the guesthouse. You can enjoy being on the water with any water recreation toys or just dive right on in yourself!

About the owner: We are a fun loving couple who have lived and enjoyed the Nelson area for the past 25 years. We have travelled extensively and strongly feel that we live in one of the most incredible places on earth! We love to hike, sail, snowboard, bike, practice yoga, and enjoy our family and friends....new and old! As you can see, we are passionate about our area and hosting people at our guesthouse is just a natural extension for us to promote fabulous vacations for people from all over the world. We have worked hard to renovate this great old heritage home in the core of this town into a cozy and welcoming space for travellers to rest and enjoy.

Why the Owner Chose Nelson:
We choose this house not only for its heritage appeal, but also because of its fabulous location. Just one block off our main downtown Baker Street, visitors can park their vehicle and meander through our fabulous shops, cafes, and restaurants. It's ideal!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Relax on one of the upper decks or the verandah with a book or your beverage of choice and enjoy the views of the mountains, lake, and garden. You can walk to all of the amenities in downtown Nelson or the waterfront, or jump in a car or one of our local buses to access the trails and ski area! Yahoo!
