Sherry or Peter Hartridge purchased this cottage in 1962

Why Sherry or Peter Hartridge chose British Columbia

Location, location! Situated on a 3 acre parcel on a secondary road off the highway, on the Transit route, safe, quiet and secure. Steps away from your private beach, beautiful Kootenay Lake offering great fishing, abundant water activities, very tranquil!

Awesome view year around, great Canadian Kootenays experience for the International traveller new to British Columbia.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the most scenic locations on Kootenay Lake. Easy access, safe and private. As well, close to great hiking, mountain biking, fishing, skiing and many other activities. Just a 10 minute drive or bus ride to downtown Nelson. Some of the finest drinking water in the Kootenays right from the tap.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sherry and Peter are most gracious hosts. They are eager to answer any questions regarding restaurants, boat rentals, and sight seeing opportunities. A perfect little "getaway" in a wonderful cottage, in the most beautiful setting. Quiet location, with a gorgeous sandy beach. So great that our dog was welcome too. The proof is in the pudding, as we are booked for next year again already.

Lovely "staycation"

  • 5 of 5

I was only a few miles from home, but it felt like being far away. A lovely cottage, beautiful views of constantly changing clouds and water. I was recuperating from some back problems, so did not take full advantage of the gardens and lawns, beach and fire pit surrounded by comfortable chairs - but I was perfectly happy in the sun room and on the deck. My hosts were friendly and available but discreet. I look forward to returning when I can spend more time outside. Highly recommended, either for a retreat or a base to explore the region.

Kootenay Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Acornlane Cottage on beautiful Kootenay Lake. The cottage was just as nice as shown in the photos on the web site. It is situated in a quiet area with a beautiful view of Kootenay Lake and close to the town of Nelson. Sherry could not have been more welcoming & made us feel at home in her lovely cottage.

Excellent Relaxation Location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place in a peaceful, scenic location to enjoy wildlife and a truly majestic lake. The owners are friendly & accommodating, and the lake front cottage is clean, private and well appointed with good appliances & BBQ (we like to cook). A big plus is the glassed in porch and large deck! There are beautiful walks through unspoiled nature, and it's close enough to Nelson for fabulous eateries and coffee houses. A win/win holiday!
