Located 12 minutes west of Nelson off Highway 3A, the Cottage is a newly renovated large bedroom loft on beautifully landscaped property with spectacular views of the Kootenay River valley and snowcapped mountains.

The space

Come and relax in our private guesthouse just minutes away from the town of Nelson.
We are located 12 minutes west of Nelson off 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.

Guest access

The loft has a double sized bed and a double sofa the folds out with a comfortable memory foam mattress. Downstairs is an open concept room with a fully equipped kitchen, dinning/living area. there is a small BBQ on the lower deck.The entrance has a full laundry room. There is free wi-fi, DVD player, movies and board games, or you can enjoy all the outdoor activities this area has to offer. A picnic basket is ready for the beach or ski hill. Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck and watch the humming birds in the garden. There are many neighborhood trails and one that leads to cool mountain pools for taking a refreshing plunge on a hot day. Before bed, light up the wood-fired sauna located on the property and relax in the hammock.

Interaction with guests

I'm only a phone call away at the neighboring house located elsewhere on the property, out of sight and earshot of the Cottage.

Other things to note

Our dog Kita keeps the mountain predators away. She is all bark and no bite. We have chickens, help yourself to fresh farm eggs in the morning.

Sonia's cottage home was a beautiful, peaceful weekend getaway. The outdoor fire pit and garden, the wood fire sauna, morning coffee on the patio, farm fresh eggs and incredible seclusion were among some of our favourite highlights of this trip. If you are looking for a cozy place to hole up and get away from the hustle and bustle of life, this place is perfect for you.

The barn cottage is a cozy ,comfortable and a clean warm space in the BC mountains near Nelson ! Sonia is a thoughtful host leaving eggs, teas, coffee, condiments, toiletries etc for guests to use . It is a very private and well treed place , yet Sonia is only a text away if you need her in the main house on the property .

Quaint, quiet and a perfect getaway for the 2 of us. Fresh eggs from the chicken coop were such a treat! Highly recommended.

The Barn Cottage more than surpassed our expectations. This is the first time we have used an Airbnb so we really didn't know what to expect; we were simply going by the picture and description of the little abode. We were impressed with how well appointed everything is, how clean we found it and that everything we could need was there, plus more, including coffee, cream and fresh eggs - a gift from the very friendly chickens.

Sonia's house is perfect! A super nice place to stay. The eggs from her own chicken where great and dog Kita came in for a treat every morning. Close to nelson, beaches and hikes.

In my career, I travelled a lot and enjoyed a home like place to land in. Now I am retired and enjoy making someones vacation stay a home away from home.
I love meeting new people even for a brief stay. Family for a short time.
