5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013 via mobile

Beautiful b&b style without the breakfast. Superb views of Kootenay Lake and close to everything(though what isn't in Kaslo) it is an ideal base. Boutique style with well appointed and comfortable rooms. There are only 3 rooms so book early. Very reasonably priced and the best value in town. Rest comfortably and enjoy a beautiful experience in the heart of the mountains. value in town. Rest comfortably and enjoy a beautiful experience in the heart of the mountains

I stayed in the Boathouse room, loved the decor; lots of antiques relating to a boat theme. Out in front of the motel is the lake, the main part of town is just a short walk away. Next time I come to Kaslo I would choose this place first if available. Wifi included and the price is very economical. Owner is very friendly.

I loved this place, it’s one of the nicest places I have ever stayed and certainly the most unique. My husband and I stayed for 1 night in June 2013; we hadn’t booked any where and only decided at the last minute to stay in Kaslo after a day in the Kootenays. Our only requirement was for somewhere clean and comfortable, but this place was a whole different matter.

I was absolutely blown away when I entered the room (the Boathouse), I thought I had accidently walked into a photo shoot for an interiors magazine. The room was beautiful and had a nautical theme with a king size bed (and memory foam mattress) sofa, bench, table and chairs and lots of interesting knick-knacks on the walls – and even the ceiling! I’ve never stayed anywhere where I’ve spent a good half hour just exploring the room.

This was all very stylish and well put together by the owner Cathy. I never met Cathy but spoke to her husband Carlos who said she sources things from antique shops etc. Even though there are a lot of things it is not cluttered and is very clean. We didn’t have a view of the lake from our room as we were at the back of the house but it was very quiet and I had the best night’s sleep in a long time. Carlos was lovely to talk to and obviously takes great pride in the guesthouse.

There is no breakfast served but we bought muffins from the shop and sat by the lake. There are some good places to eat in Kaslo and we ate both lunch and dinner at the Bluebell which was great.

The walk by the river up the new bridge and back is lovely and don’t miss the Moyie sternwheeler – fantastic!

I was in Kaslo for business and really enjoyed my stay at Beach Gables Motel. The owners, Cathy and Carlos, were very friendly and the rooms were fantastic! The beds are unbelievably comfortable, and the decor was so pretty. Above all the room had a gorgeous view of the water, and mountains. I would definitely stay here again-- hopefully next time it will be for leisure!

Cathy and Carlos Jordan have created a home away from home for every visitor. I stayed in the Victorian Suite for six days and in every cranny discovered little personal touches that anticipated my needs, right down to the binoculars on the mantlepiece by the window that overlooks the lake. The bed was fabulously comfortable, there is a frig with coffee and tea service available, a small shelf by the bed for a glass of water and great lighting over the bed for those who like to read. The room is exquisitely decorated with love and attention to detail. I particularly enjoyed waking up to the canopy over my bed and the crystal chandelier. Beach towels and chairs are available downstairs for use on the sandy beach right across the street. The beach is public and can sometimes be noisy, but the atmosphere is mostly very quiet, with the soothing swish of waves on the beach when the wind rises. Cathy was very responsive to my emails prior to my arrival and willingly took a check from the States for my room deposit. Heartily recommended.

We stayed at the Beach Gables in the Kootenay Suite, overlooking Kootenay Lake, with stunning views of the lake and the mountains beyond. Covered parking was available, and the owner helped us unload and store golf clubs in the basement.Downtown Kaslo was a 5 minute walk, with the main Kaslo tourist attraction, a completely restored Kootenay Lake sternwheeler even closer.
The room was impeccably clean, and the decor was fashionably funky- very pleasant to sit in the room's little seating area and contemplate the fabulous vista facing us.
A great place to stay!

Great little Inn tucked away in the heart of Kaslo! Right at the end of the main street greatly enjoyed the ease of parking our car and walking from our hotel around town. We stayed in the Victorian Suite and the view not only from our suite but from the the whole inn of the water and mountains was amazing and the rooms were done up fabulously! Felt very welcome and relaxed! Will definitely stay longer next time!
