Our suite is very bright and open on the ground floor, with a private outdoor patio, a full kitchen (with fridge, stove, microwave & dishwasher), plus a roomy 4 pc. bath

Nelson is world renowned for mountain biking, but there are also beautiful beaches, extensive hiking trails, and an array of challenging golf courses nearby. We are truly a four season destination and our Willows Guest Suite is the perfect location for your adventuresome getaway.

Why Andrew Jones chose Nelson

Our Willows Guest Suite is the perfect lodging with our private one bedroom plus den fully furnished suite. The suite contains a super comfy queen bed, double futon, fine linens, and cozy gas fireplace. Our suite has a fully equipped kitchen and fully anointed bath and shower.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a wonderful setting- privacy in the city with an extensive private wooded area, that backs onto the Trans Canada Trail. We are only a short 10 minute walk to the downtown of Nelson.

We love the views, the chance to be in nature, but still be within walking distance to all that Nelson has to offer.

A Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the suite. The space was comfortable and well organised. It ticked all of the important boxes: the kitchen area was large, updated with full-sized appliances, and there was a dishwasher; the washroom was very large, clean, and nicely appointed; the open living room / kitchen area was ideal for visiting with others (or simply enjoying Netflix) and provided a wonderful view to the private patio and beyond to the valley below; the bedrooms were nice; the entire suite had lots of storage. The house to which the suite is connected is located quite high on the hill and is, for this reason, very private and peaceful. The dirt lane to the location is fairly steep and might not be for everyone. All in all, the suite was a wonderful retreat.

Comfortable and perfect space for our needs. Private enough with good proximity to town, great host!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, pug and I had a wonderful experience at Willow Guest suite while working for a brief time in Nelson. We had everything we needed in a peaceful setting without being a far drive from work. Andrew was a friendly host and the space was nice and cool in the hot summer temperatures. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Would definitely book again.

  • 5 of 5

The suite was spacious, bright, clean and very comfortable. It had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. We had an incredible view of the lake during the day and Nelson lights at night. Walking trail 100 steps from our door step. The owners were very easy to deal with and the welcome bottle of wine was most appreciated! If we found ourselves needing accommodation in Nelson again, we would most certainly book this suite. Will also recommend to friends and family. Thank -you,

Brian and Karin Halladay

Wonderful place, wonderful town

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (2 adults and two kids) stayed in this property for a month in March and had such an incredible time - everything had been thought of, the suite was comfortable and quiet, the view was gorgeous and the hosts were always happy to help. There are great walking/biking trails at the back of the property and we had a lot of fun exploring them. Whitewater ski hill is a 20 minute drive and the best snow I've ever experienced. Downtown restaurants and shops are a short drive away, as is the co-op (best produce and groceries), Oso Negro (best coffee), lake and laundromat. It's also easy to walk downtown if you don't mind the uphill walk back. Highly recommended for a relaxed and comfortable stay in the Kootenays.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Super clean, well appointed and it has a great view! Our hosts were so gracious, keeping the driveway sanded and shoveling so we could get up to the ski hill in the morning. The suite was perfect for our family. Kitchen is well stocked and ready for anything. We’ll be back!

Great place -

  • 4 of 5

Place was beautiful with everything we needed and lovely view. The directions made it difficult to find and might need a better vehicle to get up driveway in winter. But all things considered we would definitely stay here again. Thank you

Nelson is the undiscovered jewel of western Canada.

Here you will find stunning scenery, with the largest inland lake in British Columbia, Kootenay Lake, abundant wildlife, natural hot springs, every recreation you can imagine; world class golfing, fishing, skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking…just to name a few.

We have a wonderful climate, giving us warm summer days, with all the water sports you can imagine…swimming, fishing, water skiing, tubing, or off to the Hot Springs. Then there is winter and our epic powder. “Ski Canada” rated Whitewater as Best Deeps, Best Bowls, and Best Glades. “Powder Magazine” declared it among the best powder in British Columbia.

Nelson has a vast arts community; hundreds of musicians, painters, where you may see their pieces in “ArtWalk” or at the new Museum and Art Gallery. We are a accepting community, otherwise known as ‘alternative’…most anyone will be at home here.
