Our contemporary custom home sits on 3.5 acres divided between sustainable food production and wild forest. The property backs onto crown land with hiking and biking trails and is halfway between Whitewater Ski Resort and Ainsworth Hot Springs, just 15 minutes from Nelson.
The house features 3 private bedrooms, tons of common space for gathering, a gourmet kitchen with gas stove and granite countertops, a wood-fired sauna, and more. The TV Room has a couch that converts to a bed, as well as cable, DVD player, and chromecast. High-speed internet signal is strong throughout the house.
Outdoor living is part of the design of the house, with lake and garden views from every room, as well as extensive patios and decks. There is a bonfire area available for seasonal use. The house shares a 3.5-acre property with another custom vacation rental, surrounded by lush food and flower gardens and backed by hundreds of acres of forest.
Our goal is to share the beauty and enjoyment of sustainable living, and to inspire people to visit our wonderful region. The garden is worked intensively from March to October, so if you're staying during that time, expect to see our Garden Manager coming into the basement to start seeds or grab a tool.
