About the Property
2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
We are located 15 minutes west of Nelson on Highway 3A part of the breathtaking Selkirk Loop. Situated on a mountainside just off the highway but secluded enough to take you away from it all.
Killara Cottage is a newly renovated 2 bedroom cottage on beautifully landscaped property with spectacular views of the Kootenay River and snow capped mountains. The main bedroom has a queen sized bed, and the second bedroom has a double bed under a lofted single (bunk bed) perfect for a second couple or the kids. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything required for a quiet dinner at home. There is high speed wi-fi internet, DVD player, movies and games for your entertainment, or you can enjoy all the outdoor activities this area has to offer.
In the summer you can enjoy a swim in the lake, or float your inner tube down the Slocan River. For those more adventurous there's kayaking, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, rock climbing and more just outside your door. There is also great shopping, museums, coffee shops and galleries in the historic town of Nelson to top off your day.
In the fall you have your choice of rivers to drop in a fly and enjoy the flyfishing that British Columbia is famous for.
In the winter, Whitewater is 25 minutes away or Red Mountain less than an hour away. Heli-Skiing and Cat-skiing are also available. There are multiple nordic ski trails to choose from and endless trails for snowshoeing.
We would love to share with you all that this wonderful place has to offer.

About the owner: Jan and Andrew met in Vancouver but Andrew was living part time between Vancouver and Melbourne, Australia. They left the big city and found this quiet little part of the world. The lure of flyfishing and the beautiful backdrop of the Kootenays brought Andrew to Canada full-time. They love all that the Kootenays have to offer and its now in their backyard. Fishing, skiing, hiking, cycling and many more things yet to discover. They do live on the property in a house completely separate from the cottage.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our property is privately situated on the mountainside, with no neighbors in sight, but you can hear the sound of the creek in your backyard and catch an occasional glimpse of roaming elk, deer and even turkeys.
