Cute and simple mini cottage nestled in old growth forest between 2 creeks. Very peaceful and quiet. Lots of light, it has 19 windows! Try out the micro home lifestyle! Please read FULL description and ALL the details before booking, this is a nonconforming accommodation :) Animal lovers will enjoy meeting our sanctuary animals between April and October.

Rixen was lovely, a little hideaway in the forest. So peaceful and pretty. The cottage had everything we needed and was a very short drive into the beautiful Nelson. We would definitely stay here again! X

Wonderful place to stay for a cosy couple of days, for a tiny house it has all you need and is very clean with enough space. I had a lovely stay, host was really helpful with quick responses. Great for privacy, wifi was good, great value for money

This place is amazing! Debra is so friendly and accommodating and we would've loved to spend more time with her. The property is so quaint and comfortable. It's given us lots of ideas for creating our own micro-house!

Debra was an amazing host. She is a very friendly person, and helped us in finding her place before we even arrived. Her little cottage by the creek is spectacular. And for anyone visiting Nelson, you should definitely try this completely unique experience. You will not regret…

Interaction with guests
I will leave a map and check in instructions in my wood mailbox which is on top of my address post so guests can self check in. During the stay I'm best reached by the airbnb thread as I'm not always home.
