Just returned from a three day holiday at the Willow Point Beach House just outside Nelson. Would strongly recommend it! The accommodation consists of two nearly identical units side by side, that had everything we needed including a small kitchen. The decor was warm, inviting, and homey. The arrangement worked extremely well for a visit with some close friends of ours who rented the second unit. The large deck, overlooking the lake and a gorgeous, sandy beach, was the perfect place to sit in the evening and drink some wine while enjoying the view. The breeze from the lake and the abundance of windows resulted in a comfortable temperature at all times.
We would like to thank our gracious hosts, Maureen and Len, who made us feel very welcome, and made our holiday all that much more enjoyable. I particularly appreciated the attention to detail in the unit, with some coffee available, cream in the fridge, a hair dryer, extra blanket, etc. The breakfasts were both delicious and substantial. Particularly enjoyed the eggs benedict and fresh fruit.
Maureen, who originally comes from Yorkshire, even took the time to provide me some information for the trip to England we are planning for next year. She also was knowledgeable about the restaurants and activities available in Nelson.
Being outside Nelson meant for a quiet, scenic setting, more than compensating for the short drive in and out of town. Guests also have access to comfortable lawn chairs with umbrellas set up on the private beach. We had a refreshing swim in the very clean lake water, a contrast to the less pristine waters found off the town beach.
We were very pleased with our stay and plan to be back.
