Cute and simple mini cottage nestled in old growth forest between 2 creeks. Very peaceful and quiet. Lots of light, it has 19 windows! Try out the micro home lifestyle!
I designed and built this semi rustic mini cottage as a hobby project 2 years ago. It's 12 x 12 feet with a 6.5 x 9 ft sleeping loft. Its simple, basic, and uncluttered. Very peaceful and quiet, tucked away in the trees with a king of the castle view down to Sproule creek. The kitchenette has a mini fridge, toaster oven, 2 burner hotplate, and microwave. Water is supplied by 5 gallon container which sits next to the sink. There's a small table with 2 chairs and a love seat. A radiant space heater keeps it really warm and cozy. The loft is accessed by ladder (not suitable for those who have trouble with ladders) and has a firm double mattress. There is some storage space beside the loft.
The bathroom and w/d facility are in a separate building (main residence) 20 meters away from the cabin. The bathroom is large and spacious and is shared with 1 or 2 other airbnb guests who may be renting rooms in the main residence. Cottage guests have 24hr access to the bathroom which is just inside the front door of the main residence. Please read the house rules and full descriptions before sending a reservation request.
Preference is given to bookings of 3 nights or more. 1 and 2 night bookings will only be considered if they fill a gap between other bookings or if requested less than 10 days in advance.
IMPORTANT: Guests must schedule an exact check in time a day before arrival. There is no check in window. I will be scheduling my other activities around your specific arrival time. Weekday check ins are usually after 7:00pm because of my work schedule.
Also, please look at the map location...this cottage is 8 minute drive west of Nelson, 10 minutes to downtown.
Guests have the whole cottage and a peice of forest to themselves, shared bathroom and w/d in the main residence, shared garden area.

I bought this property in 2007, the main residence is my dream house and its been an ongoing project of finishing and upgrading it. The location is very peaceful and quiet. Neighbors are a fair distance away. The property is divided by 2 creeks into 3 separate pieces.
When I'm at home I'm usually busy working on home projects or out in the garden.
The mini cottage I have available is about 20 meters away from the main house but hidden in the trees. I designed and built it myself as a fun hobby project. Tiny homes are becoming popular here and I wanted to be part of the micro living movement.
