Cute and cozy mini cottage nestled in a small clearing by Sproule Creek. Lots of light...this tiny home has 19 windows so you can really appreciate the surrounding nature. Try out the micro home lifestyle :) Please read the FULL description and ALL the details before booking, this is a nonconforming accommodation :) Best suited to young adventurous travelers on a budget who want a fun, unique, nature experience! Animal lovers will enjoy meeting our sanctuary animals between April and October.

The space
I designed and built this semi rustic mini cottage as a hobby project. It's 12 x 12 feet with a 6.5 x 9 ft sleeping loft. Its simple, basic, and uncluttered. Very peaceful and quiet in a small clearing near Sproule Creek. The kitchenette has a mini fridge, toaster oven, 2 burner hotplate, and microwave. Water is supplied by 5 gallon container which sits next to the sink. There's a small table with 2 chairs and a love seat. A radiant space heater keeps it really warm and cozy. The loft is accessed by ladder (not suitable for those who have trouble with ladders) and has a double mattress.
The bathroom and w/d facility are in a separate building (main residence) 30 meters away from the cabin. The bathroom is large and spacious and is shared with other airbnb guests who may be staying on the property. Cottage guests have 24hr access to the bathroom which is just inside the front door of the main residence.
Please look at the map location...this cottage is 8 minute drive west of Nelson, 10 minutes to downtown. If you feel a beautiful, quiet, private spot in the forest is unworthy of a 5 star location rating because its 8 minutes from town please book elsewhere.
IMPORTANT: 1 night bookings are only accepted if you are arriving WITHIN the next 3 weeks.
No Dogs! We don't make exceptions to this.

Guest access
Guests get the whole cottage and clearing area to themselves. Shared bathroom and w/d in the main residence 30 meters away. W/d and bathroom are just inside the front door and guests have 24/7 access.

Other things to note
Wifi is available in the cottage. Good for regular internet use but not optimal for live streaming/high bandwidth use.
No cell service here...there is service 1 minute down the road and emergency landline in the main residence.
Bears and wildlife in the area.
Cats in the main residence.
The parking area is about 50-75 meters away from the cottage.
We also operate a small farm sanctuary! Guests are welcome to meet our animals between April and October :)
Although a fire pit is visible in one photo the pit has now been retired and we keep the property fire free.
This accommodation is not suitable for older guests ( 40+) The vibe and semi-rustic nature of this accommodation is very specifically geared to the younger traveler.

I've lived in Nelson all my life. I own a music school in Nelson and teach piano lessons downtown. I designed and built the mini cottages myself as fun hobby projects. When I'm at home I'm usually busy working on home projects or out in the garden. In 2019 I started a small farm sanctuary...most of my animals were saved from slaughter and hopefully visitors to the sanctuary will reflect on how special the animals are and be inspired to try plant based meat and dairy alternatives. Guests can visit the animals between April and November (the animals spend the winters at another farm). You're welcome to go into the enclosures to hang out with them, just don't let any of them escape :)

During your stay
I will leave you a map and check in instructions in my wood mailbox which is on top of my address post. I'm often around but its best to reach me via the airbnb message thread.
