About the owner: Brian Fairbank and Grace Mickelson: Brian grew up in Nelson in the 50's and 60's and studied geology and engineering at UBC. Marriage partner Grace from Hagen Sask. is a health education professional. We live in North Vancouver and have 5 adult kids between us and three grandchildren. We love time with family and friends, travel, hiking and biking in summer, and skiing in winter.
Why the Owner Chose Nelson, BC, Canada:
We love Nelson and particularly the residential area above iconic downtown Baker Street and below Latimer Street because of the heritage architecture, rich history, easy walk for youngsters and oldsters alike to downtown, and quick access to the great outdoors. Renovating the original heritage house was a labour of love with local architect Chris Fairbank (brother), and master builders Chuck Beaulac, Max Fairbank, Wilson Fairbank, and Ben Decoste. Completed in Spring 2008, we had lots of good times. We hope guests will appreciate the Stanley Street House for its comfortable surroundings, space for entertaining guests, easy walks around town, morning exercise runs to Lakeside Park, carefree living, and central convenience as a base for an amazing variety of hiking, biking, water sports, and the best skiing anywhere.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Stanley Street House is a relaxing home-away-from-home with lots of room to move and a perfect layout for entertaining. It is a nice walk to shopping, fine dining, lively bars, morning coffee, and other Nelson ammenities. The Nelson area is a recreation mecca. Some suggested WINTER ACTIVITIES: 1) Ski open powder, tree-glades or groomed family runs at Whitewater, the #1 small ski resort in North America; 20 minutes from Nelson, no lift lines, excellent food. 2) Ski Rossland's expansive Red Mountian Ski Resort, a one-hour drive to the birthplace and home hill to Olympic Champion, Nancy Green-Raine. 3) Relax in soothing waters of Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort; experience mysterious caves, stalagmites and hot springs. 4) X-country ski at local Cottonwood Lake track at Apex (toward Salmo). 5) Check out Baker Street, the Rec Center, Touch Stone Museum, Capital Theater SUMMER day trip activity suggestions: 1) Easy day hike to spectacular alpine lodge in Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park starting from trailhead at Gibson Lake (above Kokanee Park). Or try for Monica Meadows, Blue Grouse Basin, Idaho Lookout, Drinnen Pass (best July- October). 2) Bike along the eye-achingly beautiful West Arm of Kootenay Lake (good shoulders). 3) Trail-bike on converted rail bed from Mountain Station to remote Troop Point beach, or Apex to Mountain Station. 4) Descend exhilarating mountain-bike tracks in sacred woods southwest of Nelson. 5) Picnic at Kokanee Park's fabulous sandy beach on the West Arm of Kootenay Lake. 6) Fish the awesome Main Lake for Rainbow trout and land-locked salmon from Jones Boys' Marina near Kaslo. 7) Take the longest free ferry in the world from Balfour to Crawford Bay and discover craft shops, the Kokanee Springs Golf Resort, or Riondel's orchard golf course and sheltered public beach at the north end of town. 8) Golf excellent courses in Nelson (Granite Point), Balfour and Castlegar.
