The perfect place for our family to meet up

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I went back home to Nelson with our families and stayed in the Cali suite.

It was so perfect for us and we really enjoyed our stay. The house is lovely and filled with beautifully curated art. The beach was just what we were hoping for. The seclusion and water views made even the rainy days awesome for watching the birds and deer. Every one of us including all the adult children were very impressed with the place and are planning to return. Very nice stay.

A lovely Hide-A-Way!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the entire house and it worked out perfectly for our adult group of eight. The house was very clean and well furnished. The hot tub was wonderful, clean and placed in a great spot for viewing the lake. The kitchen was well stocked, and nice towels in the bathrooms. All of use agreed we would enjoy coming back here again.

A great stay

  • 4 of 5

A beautifully located property on the river and within convenient drive time to Whitewater ski resort. We rented the lower suite of the house. Well kept, tastefully decorated and clean. We felt right at home upon our arrival. Responsive and friendly service from the property owners.

My husband and myself have been renting VRBO’s for years now and quite often the pictures don’t represent the property at check in. Hickmans Hideaway was the complete opposite! This is by far the cleanest place we have ever rented. Pictures are extremely accurate and the hospitality is top notch!

The house is full of amenities that Mandi covered with us upon check in. They were pet friendly and my dogs had the best time of their lives! We started the mornings with fresh brewed coffee and ended the days in the cleanest hot tub I have ever seen.

Nelson is a beautiful town with lots of walking trails, golf, breweries and unadulterated nature. I would not hesitate to rent this property again even debated not writing this review to keep this property as a little hidden gem to ourselves! 😉?

Thanks again to everyone that made this a superb getaway!!!!

The perfect property for our family stay and get together.

  • 5 of 5

A large home with adequate sleeping, lounging & eating facilities for the seven family members that flew in from Winnipeg and the United States. Enjoyed the luxury of the space to share with numerous relatives that live in Nelson and outlying areas, and we were able to host a wonderful BBQ with them. Hot tub and large deck were excellent, and in tip top shape. Mandi was very thorough with her introduction and explanation of the various aspects of the property, and made sure everything was to our liking. Would highly recommend this property to any family groups, and we will most certainly look to book this again next year if we are able to make the trip again. Five Stars! Thank you!

Nice but not fantastic considering cost. Need more clarity in add about separate suite on top floor

  • 3 of 5

Considering the price per night including tax, cleaning, and fees, our expectations were high. The location was clean, although master bedroom towels had to be washed due to fresh stains. Upstairs T.v. offered single channel only. Sound system did not work for us. Beautiful view, comfortable beds, cool location, well equipped kitchen, and warm welcome from host. Drop price by a 30%, make sure everything is in order and single families like ours would be all over this place.
