Why Sherry or Peter Hartridge chose Nelson

Location, location! Situated on a 3 acre parcel on a secondary road off the highway, on the Transit route, safe, quiet and secure. Steps away from your private beach, beautiful Kootenay Lake offering great fishing, abundant water activities, very tranquil!

Awesome view year around, great Canadian Kootenays experience for the International traveller new to British Columbia.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the most scenic locations on Kootenay Lake. Easy access, safe and private. As well, close to great hiking, mountain biking, fishing, skiing and many other activities. Just a 10 minute drive or bus ride to downtown Nelson. Some of the finest drinking water in the Kootenays right from the tap.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic!! We were able to fly in with my helicopter, land on the property and spend some of the best quality time ever. What a beautiful property and cottage and great hosts

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay was our 4th year at the cottage. We very much enjoy our vacations here because of the cleanliness of the cottage (and it's amenities), the water front access, the short distance to Nelson; and the owners, Peter and Sherry are great people and easy to deal with.

Beautiful Property and Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay at this property and it won't be our last. The cottage is charming, clean and nicely equipped. We loved sitting out on the front deck with breathtaking views of the lake and mountains, and evening star gazing. I used the private beach daily and it was very nice to be able to take my kayak out right in front of the cottage. Sherry and Peter are two of the nicest people you will meet and thoughtfully checked in with us periodically to make sure we had all we needed. It was a wonderful two weeks and great experience.

Owner's Response: 😐� Hmm, some people you can't satisfy! If you Ifyou leave the doors open all the time and food on the counter guess what? You will attract ants.We offered to deal with the ants but were told That youwould. We live on three acres of lakefront with one neighbor who is very occasionally here and the other you can't see. 200 ft of private beach. Read the majority of other reviews. Enough said.
