The Bee Inn is a custom green building just 15 minutes from Nelson, with 2 comfortable bedrooms and plenty of living space. The home is constructed of bricks made on site of clay and woodchips, and it has passive and active solar, an integrated greenhouse and a living roof. What's more, the striking timberframe construction results in a beautiful building. The house shares a 3.5 acre property with another custom vacation rental, surrounded by lush food and flower gardens and backed by hundreds of acres of forest. It's a short drive to many of the region's amenities, from shopping and dining in downtown Nelson to a day at the beach or a walk in the woods.

Magical Christmas Eve!
The home was very comfortable and we enjoyed the experience of a "green timberframe" building! We visited Ainsworth Hot Springs and went snowbiking! Two days was not enough, we'll be back!
Lovely to host you and SO glad you had a good time. You were ideal guests, and are welcome back any time. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip. :)
Quiet rustic retreat
I particularly liked the wooden ceiling with its huge beams. The wall sconces were attractive too. We were there during hot weather. Though the upstairs would get quite warm, the bedrooms downstairs stayed comfortably cool. And since the building is set off the road, it was wonderfully quiet.
Rustic, peaceful and well stocked
Enjoyed the rustic post and beam interior in a peaceful location. It had all the amenities we needed and no TV.
Additional information about rental rates
The Bee Inn is located in a quiet area where our neighbours appreciate the peace and quiet of our rural, forest surroundings. We expect our guests to respect our neighbours and potential guests in our second vacation rental house, by keeping outdoor noise to a minimum at all times, and shutting down all outdoor activity after 10 pm.
