About the Property

gorgeous new suite, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, ground level, private, patio

Brand new ( ready to rent May 2015), lovingly built by a Swiss carpenter eco suite on our organic farm ( Arrowhead Farm). Enjoy the fresh air and space of the country setting only a 10 min drive from downtown Nelson. 30 minutes to Whitewater Ski Resort.

Arrowhead Farm is situated on a quiet road, away from the highway, but easy access from town. BioBio Suite is on the first floor. There are no steps from the parking to the suite and none within. The main suite is occupied by the owner. There is no overlap of living areas ensuring peace and privacy for both. BioBio suite has its own entrance and a fenced in yard separate from the yard of the main house. It has a lovely private patio.

The suite has lots of natural light from its many windows.

We designed the suite with In-floor geothermal heating, air exchange for the best indoor air quality and comfort of our guests. Only the best materials were used: solid wood, stone, low VOC paints to make for the healthiest environment possible.

At 400 square feet, the suite is ideal for a single traveler or a couple, but would accommodate a family with up to 2 children.

The suite consists of a living room, kitchen, bathroom, and 1 bedroom.

The living room has a brand new leather sofa that unfolds into a full bed with a comfortable mattress ( BeautyRest) for additional sleeping spots, an armchair and an antique cabinet containing a TV.

The bedroom has a queen bed with a brand new memory foam queen mattress, bedside tables, a closet and a dresser.

The bathroom is compact with a toilet, a shower, a sink and a washer and dryer.

The kitchen is beautiful with its wall of windows and the view of the valley, custom made walnut cabinets and granite counter tops.

Other features:

WiFi ( can be turned off on request), washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen, TV, Netflix.

While staying at the BioBio Suite you will have an option to buy our farm fresh organic produce, Kootenay Local Agricultural Society certified.

Please enquire about our farm/pond permaculture tours and workshops on farm crafts: milking, cheese, butter, sour cream and yoghurt making, sourdough bread baking, fermenting, preserving.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are a family of 4 and we live in the main suite and run our organic farm. Martin is a carpenter, Tanya is a teacher.

Why the Owner Chose Nelson, BC, Canada:
Both of us grew up in the mountains- Martin in the Swiss Alps and Tanya in the Northern Caucasus, Russia, so we feel at home here in the Kootenays. We think it just doesn't get any better: the natural beauty of the country setting with its abundance of clean water, air, amazing mountain views and space to grow organic food for our family, all only a 10 minute drive away from the amazing community of Nelson with its arts and recreation.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Skiing, hiking, biking, fishing, sailing, theater, designer stores, gourmet restaurants- Nelson has it all. We are close to Whitewater Ski Resort renown for its powder. Nelson was named the best ski town in North America by Powder Magazine in 2014. We love our community and will help you with information on how to enjoy it to the fullest during your stay.
