Lakeview cottage, with canoe

Located in: Boswell
Unpretentious from the outside, this is an amazingly comfortable hand-built log frame cottage with spectacular views. It is on a mountain, overlooking Kootenay lake for miles and across from yet more snowcapped mountains of the Selkirk range. Surrounded by crown forest. There is 1 bedroom plus a hide-a-bed couch for one or two more in the front living room. The back living room has a small dining area, couch, TV and sliding doors to the sundeck. Everything is provided to make your stay stress-free: bed linens, towels etc, microwave, WiFi, wood stove, BBQ, firepit, sundeck, free firewood, full bathroom etc. Lots of recreational opportunities around. Fishing, swimming, boating, hiking (nearby or right off the property), ATV trails, nearby hotsprings, historic towns Nelson and Kaslo, the Glass House, a variety of golf courses, proximity to the US border, many local artisans etc. A canoe and life jackets are provided at no charge.

Although entirely independent, the Lakeview is semi-attached to the Rustic Log cottage. Together, they can accommodate up to 9 people (there is no indoor connection). The laundry room is between the two and disturbance is minimal. The cottage is entirely separate, no amenities are shared and has about an acre-sized field on its own private side with BBQ and firepit. Although safe and well-kept, the Lakeview is not especially child-proofed. Small stairs, an elevated deck without a railing and the wood stove are some of the hazards. We sometimes accept younger guests as long as you waive all our responsibility.

This is a large property and unlike many places you will find along kootenay lake, we are on a clearing in the middle of crown forested land with no direct neighbours. We leave you be as much as you desire but are there to assist, suggest outings or a place to buy that widget you need. The cottage is comfortable but it is the setting, space, tranquillity and views are what makes people fall in love with it. Many people return or extend their stay. We frequently host monthly renters. We are set back from the highway further than most so it is quiet and a lot of wildlife visits us. There is lots of room to wander, on and off-site. For pets too; although they need to be on-leash on-site, as soon as they are on the driveway or in the forest and the beach they can run until they drop! The forests behind us stretch all the way back to Cranbrook, with no one in between. We have created some clearly marked trails and more are planned. Although a clean and tidy property, this is not a new-built sterile second home; our place lives and breathes and has deep roots, we live on-site full time, host year round, chop our own firewood, grow our own fruit and enjoy/ deal with all seasons as they come. Our skies are so dark you can see the Milky Way. Our water comes from a spring right out of the mountain. We love hosting and will try to make your stay as stress free as possible. You're welcome to help out on the property as well!
Activities: Hiking, canoeing, snowshoeing, split your own firewood, hand-feeding the chickens :) biking, lazing on the beach or in front of the fire, exploring historic Nelson or Kalso, visit artisan shops in Crawford Bay, golf, boat, visit a dairy farm, winery, brewery, go ziplining, dining, caving, soak in the hotsprings etc etc
