Why Guy Lupien chose Ymir

Guy and Chris, originally from Quebec, moved to the Kootenays over ten years ago to enjoy the finest outdoor experience there is. They built the Kootenay Huts in the last year to share their love of the area and offer the opportunity to soak in the Kootenay mountain culture in a relaxed and peaceful setting. Their extensive outdoor experience guided the design of the chalet.

Get a complete mountain experience! Spend the nights of your daily adventures in the easily accessible but yet secluded nature spot. Cook for yourself, feel the wildlife around you, enjoy the organic feel of the chalet. Feed a log to the woodstove and keep your life simple.

A nice and forest hide-away to stay and relax with the family and the dogs. Great terrain to ski and to explore year round. A little off the beaten path, the area is ideal for those who want to be the artisan of their own adventure.

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here twice over the past few months, for rest and to deal with some personal issues. I made absolutely the right choice. The cabins are roomy, tidy and well appointed. Their location is private and secluded yet close to town. Overall I rate this place very highly, and will certainly stay here again the next time I find myself in this neck of the woods.

Everything was wonderful - we appreciated the proximity to skiing and outdoor activities, the fully equipped kitchen and all of the wood finishings and furniture. The cabin was cozy and comfortable - we will be back!

Perfect! Just what we wanted.

  • 5 of 5

We found the cabin to be very clean, comfortable and relaxing. All the descriptions and information was as stated, so there were no surprises. The location is great, spent the first week of July there with friends, hiking and enjoying the towns of Nelson and Salmo and their farmers markets. Ymir is a special little village with a great history. I highly recommend the Kootenay Huts for a peaceful get a way.

A wonderful place for families and friends

  • 5 of 5

We spent the spring break in Kootaney Hut. It was a relaxing fun filled vacation. We skied at Whitewater and Red mountain, biked at wet land, seeing so many birds and wild animals. Ainsworth Hot Spring is close by too... We also enjoyed the outdoor hot tub. It was awesome.

Great home away from home

  • 4 of 5

The cabins are spacious and comfortable. Great secluded property, and when the hot tubs going that's quite a treat at the end of the day.
