Cute and simple mini cottage nestled in old growth forest between 2 creeks. Very peaceful and quiet. Lots of light, it has 19 windows! Try out the micro home lifestyle! Please read FULL description and ALL the details before booking, this is a nonconforming accommodation :) Best suited to young adventurous travelers on a budget who want a fun, unique, nature experience. Animal lovers will enjoy meeting our sanctuary animals between April and October.

The space
I designed and built this semi rustic mini cottage as a hobby project. It's 12 x 12 feet with a small sleeping loft. Its simple, basic, and uncluttered. Very peaceful and quiet, tucked away in the trees with a king of the castle view down to Sproule creek. The kitchenette has a mini fridge, toaster oven, 2 burner hotplate, and microwave. Water is supplied by 5 gallon container which sits next to the sink. There's a small table with 2 chairs and a love seat. A radiant space heater keeps it really warm and cozy all year round. The loft is accessed by ladder (not suitable for those who have trouble with ladders) and has a firm double mattress.
The bathroom and w/d facility are in a separate building (main residence) 20 meters away from the cabin. The bathroom is large and spacious and is shared with other airbnb guests. Cottage guests have 24hr access to the bathroom which is just inside the front door of the main residence.
IMPORTANT: 1 night bookings are not accepted unless booked WITHIN 3 WEEKS of arrival.
No Dogs! We don't make exceptions to this.

I've lived in Nelson all my life. I own a music school in Nelson and teach piano lessons downtown. I designed and built the mini cottages myself as fun hobby projects. When I'm at home I'm usually busy working on home projects or out in the garden. In 2019 I started a small farm sanctuary...most of my animals were saved from slaughter and hopefully visitors to the sanctuary will reflect on how special the animals are and be inspired to try plant based meat and dairy alternatives. Guests can visit the animals between April and November (the animals spend the winters at another farm). You're welcome to go into the enclosures to hang out with them, just don't let any of them escape :)

During your stay

I will leave a map and check in instructions in my wood mailbox which is on top of my address post so guests can self check in. During the stay I'm best reached by the airbnb thread as I'm not always home.
