Experience the town of Nelson and the Kootenay Mountains while living on your own private mountain side property located just outside of town. The Whitewater Chalet is the perfect balance of nature, tranquility and accessibility to experience endless adventure and Nelson, one of the greatest mountain towns in North America, and the cultural capital of the region. Tucked away, roughly 10 min from the town of Nelson, the chalet is nestled on a private property surrounded by lush forest with a creek, waterfall and private trails steps from the door. Enjoy an 8-person hot tub, two outdoor deck spaces, seating benches, walking trails and more.
In the winter, you’ll be the closest lodging option to Whitewater Ski Resort, just five minutes up our road. In the summer, access from the Chalet is endless with mountain biking, hiking, fishing, SUP, climbing and more at your finger tips. It’s the absolute perfect base camp for daily adventure.
Winter Access Warning - Please plan for winter driving conditions. 4WD, snow tires and/or chains are recommended for access to the chalet.
The Chalet is used exclusively as a vacation rental property and is maintained to be very clean and comfortable for all guests.
The beautifully finished, hand-built log cabin has everything you’ll need through all seasons to be comfortable. You’ll stay warm burning stocked wood in the wood stove, the cabin’s centered feature. You’ll stay hydrated drinking the greatest tasting water on earth, drawn from the Rambling Creek and waterfall next to the property.
The Whitewater Chalet’s main floor has a large open living space centered around a wood burning stove with a chimney stack that rises all the way to the ceiling. The open kitchen with counter seating and two adjacent dining table areas will keep everyone in your group together. The main floor of the chalet also has a large mudroom, laundry area and full bath. The large deck space off of the main floor has a nice outdoor table and chair set.
The downstairs level has two bedrooms (2 double beds in each room that can easily be pushed together) and a full bath with a stand-up shower.
The open loft level, upstairs from the main floor has a full bed and another twin bed if you need extra sleeping space.
A few steps from the main cabin is the guest cabin, a stand-alone, heated, private bedroom with a queen size bed. Guests sleeping in the guest cabin are just a few steps away from the full bathroom on the main floor level of the chalet. The walkway is nicely lit at night. The guest cabin is a unique addition to the property that will make you feel like you’re “glamping.” It’s absolutely perfect for a couple looking for privacy.
Access the cabin from a short meandering path or an elevated staircase that drops you into the mountain forest utopia.
