What makes this Guest House unique
A unique opportunity to stay in one of Nelson's oldest historic buildings. Built in 1891 as the Tremont Hotel during the early days of a silver and gold mining rush to the area. Great care was taken to maintain a historic feel, while providing all the modern amenities that travellers hope for. Beautiful refinished fir floors, tongue & groove ceilings, marble and granite counters, stainless steel appliances, including a 6 burner professional range. The loft has state of the art heating and air conditioning, as well as a mechanical ventilation system to provide fresh air into the loft 24hrs a day. The gas fireplace will immediately warm you up on cold winter days after skiing. Historic photographs line the walls of the private mini bar- and give you a glimpse of what the building and Nelson looked like in the 1890's. The rooftop courtyard is completely private - no one can see in - a great place for catching some sun, or sitting in the evening with a drink. We also have private off street parking available for guests at the rear of the building. King size beds in both bedrooms with 800 thread count sheets, lots of pillows, bedside tables, alarm clocks etc. Iron, ironing board, hair dryers, and all the dishes, glasses and cooking utensils you might need.

Great place to stay in Nelson!
We stayed here in October and the loft is fantastic. It is perfectly situated right in the middle of downtown Nelson - about a 5 minute walk to just about everything.
The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook all your meals, but if you prefer to eat out, there is a surprising selection of restaurans for a small town.
We loved the loft so much that we booked a second stay for next year while we were there.
The parking situation is a bit odd - in the back alley behind the building - but not really an issue.
The stairs to the loft are quite steep and storing our bikes in the stairway was awkward, but we made do.
Really looking forward to our next visit!
Spacious and comfortable
Doug and Fiona were extremely helpful and accommodating, staying in touch and answering any queries as they arose.
The Loft is very roomy and comfortable with a couple of quiet areas to sit in as well as the main room.
The stairs up to the Loft are a bit difficult with large cases as they are quite steep, but they are manageable as long as you don't have a mobility issue. We are in our late 60s and coped.
We were in the apartment one afternoon and heard strange noises which we eventually tracked down to a children's martial arts class next door, but, rest assured that at night it is very quiet and there is nothing to disturb sleep.
The photos are accurate and if you want something a bit different this might be for you.
5 stars for short term rental. Only 4 for our stay as we stayed 7 nights and hiked or biked daily, thus a washer and dryer and BBQ would have tipped the scale. That said there is a laundromat directly across the street but it would be much more convenient to have it in-house. We had planned to dine in more often as well, but found the absence of a BBQ limited our quick meal plan. People with babies that depend on a microwave to warm bottles or baby food should also be aware there isn’t a microwave. That didn’t affect our stay at all but it was surprising in the beautiful kitchen provided. Now the positives; the unit is stunning and curated for a very discerning palate. The location is perfect with shopping, grocery stores, art galleries, restaurants,cafes and the lake a stones throw away. The beds were really comfortable and the kitchen was generously stocked. We were greeted with fresh flowers and a lovely bottle of wine to boot. Great pride has been taken in the unit.
Absolutely Fabulous Stay
The space is amazing - location fantastic on Main Street in Nelson with Mountain views. Doug and Fiona were very helpful in making our trip such a great success. The apartment is spacious and beautifully and tastefully decorated, yet very comfortable and homey. As an Inteior Designer myself I could truly appreciate the effort and talent that went into renovating the space.
One of a kind property would recommend it in a heart beat!
Our most memorable stay in Nelson
My husband and I travel to Nelson twice a year, going on to year 5 now. One of the sole purposes of our trip is to visit our favourite store, Cartolina. We heard about the Tremont Loft a few years back during one of our many visits to Cartolina, except whenever we were ready to book the times available never worked for us. This is the first time that it just seemed to work out for us, and it has been our most memorable stay in Nelson yet.
The photos are true to the space. Upon entering the loft, I felt like I stepped into all the photos I've seen online. There was no detail overlooked in this beautiful loft. The space was so warm and inviting, filled with plenty of natural light. The linens and towels are high quality and the rooms were nicely filled with my favourite soaps and scents from Cartolina. It was also nicely stocked with everything you would need to cook and serve in a the beautiful gourmet kitchen.
The location is perfect... right in the heart of Nelson on Baker street, but tucked quietly at the end. Everything you need is just around the corner. The Kootney Co-op is just a quick 5 minute walk away, filled with fantastic, high quality items that made it fun and exciting to cook in the loft - and comparing to Calgary, were very reasonably priced too! Our favourite spot to eat is the Cantina, and was the perfect stumbling distance after having a flight of tequila :) My favourite crystal shops were even just a few doors down. The. Location. Was. Perfect. And yet.... with all the hot spots so close by, we always found ourselves coming back in the loft, sitting by the fire, or admiring the streets from the ceiling to floor windows. The space is really just that beautiful.
We definitely plan to make the Tremont Loft a part of our yearly tradition. Doug was so easy to communicate with right from the request for booking. Fiona was kind and fun to chat with during our visit at the shop. Thank you again Doug & Fiona for a memorable getaway. We will be back again!
