Mistiso's Place Vacation Rentals
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 February 2014

If I could live in Nelson it would be in a place just like Mistiso's. We occupied two rooms for 6 people. We were comfortable and impressed with how there seemed to be everything we needed. A crock pot in the kitchen, BBQ tools, even shampoo and extra towels! It felt more like being a preferred guest than a customer. The location is perfect with a great view of the lake from the top floor. This place is lacking nothing and Maria is a lovely host; available and accommodating but not overbearing.

A Great Big Thank you to Maria for making our Christmas at Mistiso's a great experience. We were having a large family get together and Maria was very accommodating and met all our needs(extra plates, cutlery, glasses, chairs). A small Christmas tree and lovely decoration helped make the littlest members time fun!!

All 3 suites we rented were comfortable and clean.. the kitchen had all the items needed to make a festive meal!!

Mistiso's is in a fabulous location, within walking distance to the downtown area and waterfront.

Parking is tight and a bit slippery...the only issue we encountered..

You will love staying here!!!!

Such a lovely location in a beautiful guest house! My family had a relaxing and comfortable stay in Mistiso's Place; we thoroughly enjoyed our warm New Year's holiday. Maria is very generous and accommodating to all guests! Definitely on our 'favourite place to relax' list! The bed in the Kokanee suite was so very comfortable....

Room Tip: The Kokanee suit does not have a stove but has two hotplates. Worked fine for us as my whole family...

Lovely guest house, with beautiful character features due to its being a heritage building. My stay there was comfortable and a good experience. The room was clean and comfy, with colourful décor that showed attention to detail. Many special touches made my stay there memorable. The location is very convenient and a lovely area to be in – close to down town, shops and restaurants. In my room I had access to a full kitchen which was a great convenience to have. It would be nice to come back, preferably in the summer.

Maria was a wonderful host who made sure everything was right. We stayed in the Silver-King suite and everything was clean and working well. A wonderful combination of heritage and modern amenities. We loved all the unpainted wood accents and doors. And the heated floors were such a bonus. A great location near downtown shops yet 5 minute drive to most everything in Nelson. The only reason our rating was 4 stars and not 5 stars was due to the tight access to parking. Parking behind the building is good, but the narrow lane-way leading off the street to the back of the building can be tight, especially if your vehicle is larger than a compact. Not the fault of Mistiso's. We will definitely stay again on future visits to Nelson.

Our stay at Mistiso's was very enjoyable with its welcoming décor and its beautiful view of Kootenay Lake. We found the Kokanee suit very well kept and clean, we also found it to be very well stoked with everything we needed to feel like home.
PS. The most comfortable bed we have ever slept in...........

Mistiso's came highly recommended and without a doubt it was one of the best overnights that I've had in a long time. The Kokanee Suite has all the amenities one would want and so much space! It has a balcony that overlooks the lake. The view and the setting are very therapeutic. It is in walking distance from city centre and just up the street there is a lovely residential walk. The parking in the back is a bonus!
It is a very special accommodation and one I have recommended to my friends. I will be back!

Room Tip: The Kokanee Suite was recommended to me and it is the only room I know. I loved it!!
