Car: Recommended

Kaslo is a haven for small business entrepreneurs and artisans whose works are displayed in shops and galleries throughout the village. The storefronts lining Front Street date back to the early 1900s and the unique historic architecture of the period has been painstakingly preserved or restored.

Kaslo is also home to a number of events and festivals throughout the year, including the famous Kaslo Jazz Summer Music Festival, named by USA Today as one of the “10 greatest places to get in tune, and be outdoors!”

A myriad of recreational opportunities sustains locals and draws visitors to the Kaslo area year round: A short distance from town you will discover many hiking trails, hot springs, beaches and other small villages, each unique in its own way.

Kaslo´s most attractive feature will always be the pristine beauty of its natural surroundings. The nicest thing about the Kootenays is that the area is always green; clouds form in fantastic configurations, and, if you are lucky, you will see a triple rainbow.


Owner info

About the owner: Jacqueline Mealing owner of the Vacation Rental Property. She is an active outdoor enthusiast, artist and retired teacher. She has been doing volunteer Community Development work in Guatemala in the winter months and enjoying the pristine wilderness of the Kootenays in the spring and summer. She loves to meet new people and introduce guests to the gorgeous Kootenay Rockies.

Why the Owner Chose Central Kootenay D, British Columbia, Canada:
Kootenay Lake is one of the few unspoiled recreation areas around. You can look across the lake and view the Purcell Wilderness Conservancy, and enjoy the unspoiled quietness of nature. Our spacious lodge is a unique building in Southwestern/Deco architectural style. There is a beautiful walk along Kootenay Lake from our lodge to nearby Fletcher Falls. Countless hiking, kayak, road trips and adventures are within minutes.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our property has outstanding lakefront mountain views and is the perfect answer if you desire to get away and relax. One can sit with friends and family for hours enjoying the changes on the lake waters and viewing occasional spectacular rainbows or soak at the Hot Springs. There are many opportunities for backcountry adventures (we can arrange guided trips), swimming beaches close by, many beautiful drives and exciting jeeping. Some of the best motorcycling, golfing, boating, kayaking, cycling, are in close range. Cultural activities, galleries, visible craftspeople and farmers market showcase the creative edge of the Kootenays. Historic Kaslo has the world's oldest paddle wheeler, museums and many great restaurants. Fishermen will find record rainbow trout & can meet with others at nearby Jones Boys' Marina. You will enjoy the world's longest free ferry ride to an artisan village and the Ashram across the lake.The historic arts town of Nelson, noted for diversity of shops and a rich artistic presence is 45 minutes away.
