About Monika Smutny

I have always been living on or near the mountains. This is where I feel most at home. The photo above is me hiking up Idaho Peak in late fall, spectacular views from the peak and a most recommended climb! I was born in Vancouver, near the Coastal Mountains, then onto growing up in the East Kootenays and the Rockies. I have travelled to the Alps and the Andes, but have felt most at home in the West Kootenays where I have the pleasure to live and explore the Goat Ranges and the Valhallas. I now reside in the Rossland Range and get to visit my Mountain Cottage and share it with guests like you! Some of the things that bring me pleasure and joy are my children, gardening, writing, kayaking and skiing. I have a love and passion for all plants medicinal and my favorite hobbies are to go berry picking and wildcrafting. In the winter months, I also enjoy candlemaking and reading. I have a dream one day to build a treehouse that is fully sustainable, off grid and totally in line with nature and the eco system. I hope to show and share this with my children, life partner, family and friends.

Why Monika Smutny chose British Columbia

This property was chosen because of its open beauty in the wintertime. In this area the lakes gets to be 'sogged in' this time of year, but yet up here at this elevation , you are often above the clouds and the inversion that the lakes can create. The Mountain air funnels down through the back basin and opens up clear skies and lots of big, snowflakes! Set in a snowbelt, there is always some fresh powder to be found for winter ethusiasts. In the summertime it is ideal as it stays cooler in the evening while when its HOT during the day you are only a short distance of the stunning and beautiful Slocan Lake for a cool off at the beach! There is privacy and quiet while you are on the mountain and you are surrounded by forest with views of the mountains. Sit on the deck and listen to bird song in the summer or snow falling in the winter. You feel remote, yet you are only a 5 minute drive to the nearest Village where you can get all your basics and necessities at the local market, building store or have a great cappuchino at the local cafe! There are tons of nearby trails for hiking, biking, skiing or snowshoeing. Many attractions in season including golf courses, hot springs, artisan shops, botanical gardens, restaurants, museums, ghost towns and all the outdoor adventure you can take in!

What makes this cottage unique

Travellers will fall in love with our Mountain Cottage and get a sense of home as soon as they walk in! We have made it comfortable, warm and inviting. You will soon relax as you look around through the large windows into old growth tree stands and mountain views! We have books and games for your pleasure along with a fully equipped kitchen for large meals and gatherings up to 10 & 12 people. Plenty of room on the 2 acres to stretch, do yoga or tai chi, sports and for children to play. We have a park like setting with shaded and open grassy areas. Feel free to explore the garden for the berry and herb treasures that are hidden is something for everyone of all ages at our Mountain Cottage Getaway! In May 2015 we opened our rustic cedar sweatlodge sauna ready for guests which is located right by our outdoor firepit complete with sitting benches and peek a boo lake views :) Come relax or come for an adventure, you will want to stay for at least 1 week, maybe longer.....!

Cozy cottage - recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Nakusp and Ainsworth hotsprings last week, and spent two nights in this cozy and fully equipped mountain cottage. The woodstove is good enough to keep the two-floor cottage warm. Wood is also available in the house and more in the yard. The house owner is very friendly and responsive. All in all, we had great time there. I recommend this place!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I came here for a weekend away with a couple girlfriends. Monica met us and was very friendly, helpful, and inviting when we checked in.

The cottage was perfect for a group of people! The kitchen has everything you could need, including a waffle maker and a slow cooker! The beds were comfortable, cozy, and with a lot of extra blankets. The woodstove was very easy to use and kept the entire house warm. A very short drive into town, and very close to hiking and walking areas. We had two very well-behaved dogs with us, and the place was perfect for them. We loved our girls weekend away! I would definitely come again!
