Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

Private, peaceful & super cute. Almost-off grid cabin in the woods, only 5 minutes to downtown Nelson. Cozy up on the "nest", enjoy the wood burning stove all while looking out the huge windows into the forest. Climb the ladder into the loft bedroom with a queen size bed and be sure to check out the outside fire place, shared hot tub, muskoka chairs and short hiking trail on our 6 acres.
20 minute drive to Whitewater Ski Resort. 40 minute drive to Ainsworth Hotsprings.

Thanks again for staying with us Geoffroy! Wish you would have mentioned the odour while you were here - we mention in your check-in info and the house manual that if you notice any odour to let us know so we can swap the compost for you. All the best!

Charming space in the trees :) I'd come back in a heartbeat. I might consider putting a door on the bathroom but we made it work just fine haha. Thanks for the stay.
