My little sister and I decided to make a short trip up to Nelson, BC for an early birthday weekend. I reserved a hotel room on Booking.com. After a quick trip further north to Ainsworth Hotsprings, we came back down and checked into the room. The hotel is super darling. It's

We had 2 rooms for a night at the hotel in September 2018. The highlight of the stay was an hour on the rear deck with a glass of wine just after sunset. The rooms were clean and comfortable with average décor. Some of the rooms, in particular front room overlooking the town

Thank you so much for writing us a review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay, and I must agree the back deck is so perfect for a early evening glass of wine. Just to clarify we actually only have one room with the bathroom set up you mention, it is our Cedar room and the bathroom is 100% private to the room, just not en-suite. We do mention this in all our listings, as we want happy guests. All our other rooms and suites have en-suite bathrooms, this is the only quirky one. We do hope we might see you again, and you can try one of our other rooms out, as all 8 are completely individual. Kind regards, Sally

We loved our stay in the Fir room for four nights in late December for a romantic getaway. Chris, our host, and the entire staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating, and we definitely plan to return in the future!
