The cozy cottage is at the end of a quiet no-thru road, on the shores of the sheltered Queens Bay, the warmest water in Kootenay Lake laps at this beach. The cottage is 30 minutes between Nelson and Kaslo, and just a few minutes North of the Balfour Ferry Terminal.
The fully equipped cottage has a full kitchen with fridge, stove, oven, microwave and a BBQ. There is a full bathroom with a large shower. Everything that you need will be waiting for you, including all bedding, linens and towels… if there is something more you require, just ask.
Head out and explore what the area has to offer. There are spectacular golf courses just minutes away, or soak in the mineral waters at Ainsworth Hot Springs, spelunk at Cody Caves Provincial Park, hire a fishing charter or hike, mountain bike or zip-line… so many opportunities are nearby so please ask for a “Daytrip Distance and Info sheet” to be sent to you. At the end of a day full of Kootenay style adventures, dine at any one of the excellent restaurants or pubs in the area. Then come home to peace and quiet and an evening of telling stories around your campfire on the beach.
Sound, Lighting and Audio Visual rentals for ANY event. We also feature an experienced, professional DJ service. Serving Nelson and area for 16 years.
From learning how to run a business in Vancouver, I have stuck with the philosophy of being on time, always courteous, do what we say, finish what we start, providing fair and competitive prices. This belief has made my team and I successful in maintaining a strong relationship with every client I’ve done work for in this area. I strive to complete my work with a sense of pride and satisfaction knowing that I made a difference with each and every client. I love meeting new people and helping them out when I can. I look forward to meeting you down the road as well.
