Colleen's Ivory Thistle Cottage is a lovely, cozy, private getaway the perfect distance from one of our favorite towns, Nelson, B.C. I traveled there for a long weekend with my husband and another couple, and we all loved it. We did not get to meet Colleen, but she is a thoughtful host. Will definitely return soon.

We stayed for five months during the winter in this fantastic cottage. It's completely dreamy, the interior decoration is super cozy and genuine (french countryside style), the amenities are perfect. The kitchen is fantastic for cooking, it's superbly equipped, smartly planned and very social. We've had lots of guests and with six people we still felt like there was plenty...
