Close to world class ski hills and backcountry skiing, excellent hiking and mountain biking opportunities and even private hiking trails right out your door.
“We absolutely LOVED our time at Keystone Cabin. It was full of rustic charm and much needed solitude. If you are looking to escape from the hustle and bustle — this place is for you. Johanna was a perfect host, so respectful of privacy yet accommodating and helpful. The cabin was full of thoughtful touches to make your stay great. It was comforting to know that Johanna lived on the same property and was easily reachable if need be. We especially enjoyed getting to build a fire each day. The kitchen was well equipped with all the basics needed for your food wishes. The propane grill was especially useful once we realized that cooking on the wood fire stove would take a while. We thought that doing dishes without running water would be more difficult than it actually was. We heated snow and the warm water made cleaning much easier. The trek from the parking spot to the cabin was made difficult due to the snow, however it was doable with sensible boots and should not present a problem during the summer. All in all, we are looking forward to returning to the cabin in the future.”

“Deane and Kadie’s place was awesome! It is centrally located in Nelson. There was even a beautiful view of the bridge. The binder inside was very informative, and even helped my friends and I figure out the best places to eat. Plus it gave us the idea to go to Ainsworth hot springs while there. Next time I plan a trip to Nelson I will book this place again!”
Our suite with private bath is ideal for a couple or a small family. It's attached to the main house, but you have your own private entrance and can come and go as you please. It's roughly 220 sf total. We upgraded the bed to a Sleep Number bed for it's adjust-ability, hoping to make as many of our guests comfortable as possible. Shaded by the Austrian pine, it stays pleasant and cool in the summer heat. == TO ANYBODY TRAVELLING USING GPS == Please check my directions for the final turns
“I stayed at Marianne’s place during the pandemic, due to not being home when it was declared an emergency. I appreciated the extra cleaning she did, as I’m asthmatic and needed a safe place to stay while isolating myself on the way home. It was a nice space, and walking distance to some trails. There was enough room to do yoga inside (necessary) and enough kitchen equipment for simple meals. The hosts were great and accommodating, and I would recommend them to anyone. I had been worried about noise but due to the suite being below the patio, but it was only noisy when they were above me, which would not be a problem whatsoever if there hadn’t been a pandemic and I could’ve left all day like most travellers would. It was never loud at odd hours. So it’s great for light sleepers. The only problems I encountered were keeping the space warm, as the baseboard heaters are largely covered up and the floor is tile, the coldness seeps up from the ground. It would be lovely in summer. I remedied this by pulling the daybed out more from the wall and propping up their fan above that to blow the warm air into the room more. It worked decently enough. The other problem I encountered is their horrible neighbour, with control issues and an aggressive personality. He basically doesn’t want anyone parking in the only spot they have. He intentionally makes parking there difficult, and if you touch any corner of his property, or he thinks you did (I actually hadn’t), he will take it upon himself to yell at you. I would check with Marianne how that situation is going if you’re someone with a lot of things and you aren’t able to unload them all uphill and up stairs, or you don’t have a vehicle with a great turning radius (or the skill) that can get into their spot with the angry man’s car blocking the easy way to do so. He may yell at you anyway, as he did me, even though I hadn’t touched his space. He’s a selfish old man, and this can’t be held against the hosts. He can be avoided if you don’t need to park there. There is street parking nearby.”
