This quaint cabin is nestled between two very old barns built over 100 years ago in a rustic setting. The cabin has two rooms with high wooden open beam ceilings which makes the cabin feel larger then it is. The kitchette, has a toaster oven, electric tea pot, coffee bodum, blender and small refrigerator; convenient for the preparation of simple foods and beverages. The bedroom has a very comfortable queen size bed and goes out to the small fenced backyard with a small deck and sitting area.
Our little cabin is close to many wonderful activities and amenities - City of Nelson 20 minute drive along the beautiful lake, approximately 30 minutes to Ainsworth Hot springs, 12 minutes to Kokanee National Park and the Zip line, 20 minutes to the longest distance, free of cost ferry in the world, 45 minutes to Kaslo, the biggest smallest city on the lake and about 40 minute to the Whitewater Ski Resort turnout.
During the late spring and summer we have a canoe and two kayaks which may be borrowed if you have a way to get them to the lake. You must also have a whistle with you while on the lake, the water is very cold!

The natural unpainted wood for the interior was carefully salvaged from the previous owner's sister’s heritage barn; one can easily see this cabin was built with love.

Hello, five years ago we moved with our five animal friends; three dogs and two cats, from Victoria B.C. to beautiful Nelson B.C. because we wanted to live a quieter life. We both had lived most of our lives in smaller towns or city neighborhoods, within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean and now live on the North Shore of Nelson enjoying our surroundings, way of life, and occupations. We are both professionally educated and trained health practitioners who enjoy sharing our experiences, helping others, help themselves and their animal friends.
