Why Maria Schuh chose Nelson

Conveniently located in the heart of Nelson BC , this beautiful vacation rental is only steps away from historic Baker Street and recreation facilities, and just minutes from Nelson's Waterfront Pathway.

Nelson, the Heritage capital of British Columbia is nestled in between the beautiful Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges along the shores of Kootenay lake.

This charming Arts and Crafts home built in 1926 was extensively refurbished 75 years later, earning Nelson's 'Heritage Building of the Year' award for 2001. Mistiso (Miss-tee-so) - Spanish word for hybrid, a blend of two diverse cultures or traditions.

In it's lifetime, this house has seen Nelson go through a number of transformations culminating into the melting pot that it is today. Mistiso's Place is a reflection of this, with the fusion of old and new, traditional yet funky, elegant but casual.

We have a stunning collection of tastefully finished, warm and inviting self-contained suites, ranging from 1-3 bedrooms that can comfortably accommodate up to 14 people.

Each guest suite is eclectically furnished with living/dining room, kitchen and 4 piece bath and offers its own special charm and character that will make you feel right at home.

Truly upscale accommodation at an affordable price .

Beautiful, funky unit.

  • 5 of 5

Very well-appointed, and VERY convenient to downtown Nelson. Surprisingly quiet. Lovely heritage home. All the modern conveniences of home were in our unit. Loved the still-working retro refrigerator!

Above all the best!

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to Nelson on business for 25 years and none beat Mistiso's. Everything is amazingly decorated with funky/cool stylings and beautifully appointed. The heat is on when you arrive. You can live in this place. Mistiso's is only 2 minutes walk to everything Nelson. Maria is a doll who pays attention to every detail.

A wonderfully cozy retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We have really enjoyed staying at Mistiso's in the past and this past March stayed in the Kokanee suite which was absolutely lovely, cozy and charming. Mistiso's has become our 'home away from home' when we go to Nelson. Excellent location and wonderful owners!

Everything we needed for three adults and two teens

  • 5 of 5

We were planning on staying in two hotel rooms, but found Mistiso's place and it seemed a better fit for us -- more shared space, and helped make the trip affordable by cooking a few meals at home. Glad we did! We had a great time, lots of space in the Purcell suite for three adults, two teens, and all of our snow gear. Cooked big family meals, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Location is perfect for running out to town or out for groceries. We'll be back next year for sure.
