This charming cottage, built in 1964, has been recently updated without ruining the architectural simplicity of its design. The spectacular view of the lake and the peaceful environment make this spot an amazing retreat. The fully functional kitchen has everything you need to make your own meals - stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, coffee maker plus a little bit of the basics such as salt, spices, oil and flour. The deck has a gas BBQ, a dining table and chairs, and a separate seating area. The house has wi-fi, a portable DVD player (no TV), stereo, telephone, washer and dryer. The property and its secluded sandy beach is on the west arm of Kootenay Lake just 15 kilometers (9 miles) from Nelson. There is a lot to do in Nelson plus parks, hiking, skiing and hot springs close by.

About Chris Ubick
Our mother, Janet, purchased this property in 1928 when the best way to get there was by boat from Nelson. She taught school in Nelson and loved the outdoors. It was an apple farm and the old house that they used for camping is right next door the the cottage (which Janet and her husband built in 1964). Our cousins live in the next two houses along the lake and step in as property hosts while we are away.

Why Chris Ubick chose Central Kootenay F
Janet's parents moved to Nelson in the 1890's and her father, Alexander Carrie, was the architect of many of the historic buildings in downtown Nelson. But the biggest reason they all stayed is the beauty of the Kootenays.

Clean and cute lake house with amazing views and private beach
Lovely beach house, incredible private beach and view down the Lake. It's very comfortable living with a well-stocked kitchen, lots of linens and towels, a washer and dryer, and plenty of hot water.
I've been there several times and the owners have been very pleasant to meet. They give us privacy once we've arrived and that makes it even easier to unwind and enjoy the place.
The only real negative is the road noise. The house is close to highway 3 and so at busy traffic times, it's loud. There are long periods when the road is pretty quiet but when you're having a meal on the deck you sure notice. It's really not that big of a nuisance - we keep coming back. But it is worth a star off.
Perfect Spring Break!
We loved this lakefront cottage. It was absolutely perfect for our spring break with three 17 year olds and our 3 year old beagle. We loved the minimalist decor & that there was no tv, loved all the books & games, and the well-stocked kitchen. The view is absolutely breath taking too. We couldn't believe it when we first walked in. And the beach...ohhh the beach...perfect and we loved having a fire where the kids roasted hot dogs & had a blast-by the way-thanks so much for all the wood for that fire & the fireplace in the cottage which we loved! We couldn't have asked for a better host too. I don't know why we don't go to Canada more as each and every person at the hot springs, in Nelson, and elsewhere are so very kind & helpful. Canadians rock! Thanks for such great memories in your amazing home. We really appreciate your family sharing something so special that's obviously been in their family for some time, as is evident by the beautiful pictures on the walls. We miss it already...sigh
BC view with comfort and ease
A wonderful cottage overlooking the lake with a private beach... my family had a great time... fully stocked, just pull in, park your car and relax. The fun of Nelson is nearby... our dog had a blast chasing waves... thanks Graham!!
