Beautiful And Private Mountainside Log Cabin - Hot Tub And 10 Min From Nelson

Bedrooms 4
Property type chalet
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

(3bd/2ba) Closest Lodging and Hot Tub to Whitewater Ski Resort - 10 min to town

Experience the town of Nelson and the Kootenay Mountains while living on your own private mountain side property located just outside of town. The Whitewater Chalet is the perfect balance of nature, tranquility and accessibility to experience endless adventure and Nelson, one of the greatest mountain towns in North America, and the cultural capital of the region. Tucked away, roughly 10 min from the town of Nelson, the chalet is nestled on a private property surrounded by lush forest with a creek, waterfall and private trails steps from the door. Enjoy an 8-person hot tub, two outdoor deck spaces, seating benches, walking trails and more.

In the winter, you’ll be the closest lodging option to Whitewater Ski Resort, just five minutes up our road. In the summer, access from the Chalet is endless with mountain biking, hiking, fishing, SUP, climbing and more at your finger tips. It’s the absolute perfect base camp for daily adventure.

Winter Access Warning - Please plan for winter driving conditions. 4WD, snow tires and/or chains are recommended for access to the chalet.

The Chalet is used exclusively as a vacation rental property and is maintained to be very clean and comfortable for all guests.

The beautifully finished, hand-built log cabin has everything you’ll need through all seasons to be comfortable. You’ll stay warm burning stocked wood in the wood stove, the cabin’s centered feature. You’ll stay hydrated drinking the greatest tasting water on earth, drawn from the Rambling Creek and waterfall next to the property.

The Whitewater Chalet’s main floor has a large open living space centered around a wood burning stove with a chimney stack that rises all the way to the ceiling. The open kitchen with counter seating and two adjacent dining table areas will keep everyone in your group together. The main floor of the chalet also has a large mudroom, laundry area and full bath. The large deck space off of the main floor has a nice outdoor table and chair set.

The downstairs level has two bedrooms (2 double beds in each room that can easily be pushed together) and a full bath with a stand-up shower.

The open loft level, upstairs from the main floor has a full bed and another twin bed if you need extra sleeping space.

A few steps from the main cabin is the guest cabin, a stand-alone, heated, private bedroom with a queen size bed. Guests sleeping in the guest cabin are just a few steps away from the full bathroom on the main floor level of the chalet. The walkway is nicely lit at night. The guest cabin is a unique addition to the property that will make you feel like you’re “glamping.” It’s absolutely perfect for a couple looking for privacy.

Access the cabin from a short meandering path or an elevated staircase that drops you into the mountain forest utopia.

If you want comfort, relaxation, adventure, excitement, and everything else that's amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family of five stayed at this fantastic piece of paradise for an amazing 7 days! Arriving at it's location, just pulling up the secluded drive you couldn't help but be in awe of its setting! The hot tub over looking the mountain, the stream trickling down the stairs path to the main cabin sitting beside an entirely separate guest house was screaming adventure. You walk in and are invited by a cozy warm comfortable quiet open cabin that you can't help but love. Kitchen is loaded with everything you could possibly need to cook for and entertain any type of group you go with. The main cabin had more then enough space for our family of five. We found ourselves having a blast utilizing the supplied games to play at night after returning from one of the insanely large amount of activities all with in a half hour to an hour from the cabin. From caving to whitewater rafting and hiking to shopping. On return from our activities the cabins front entry has loads of room to unpack from your adventures and a washer and dryer right beside that for laundry.. Everything was perfectly placed. Don't stop at the cabins interior though go out on the deck and enjoy an early cup of coffee high up breathing in the mountain air and enjoying the view of the neighbouring mountain or go for a short seven minute walk and relax next to a roughly twenty foot waterfall!! The property was fantastic in every sense of the word! Winter time coming I know I'm going back as it's located right beside one of BC's best ski hills. So if your into adventure, comfort, relaxation, or just want to use it as a base camp to do activities and shopping it works for everything.. A word or two on the owners! Extremely accommodating! Everything you need is there and so you won't likely require there assistance but if you do there very quick to respond and will help with what ever is required with no issues. I had a minor question on the location of something during my stay. I was replied to within 20 minutes and was offered on site assistance as soon as I was available and willing. Att: families with teens! This trip with this cabin in it's setting and versatility has brought me and my family with my teens and youngest closer then we have ever been. Can't thank the hosts enough for this amazing well priced paradise! Miss it terribly and we just left. Will definatly be recommending to everyone I know for both summer and winter stays! We will be back!

Great Snowy Mountain Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this mountainside cabin, tucked away on the road to Whitewater ski resort. Everything worked well in the chalet, and we appreciated that the kitchen was well appointed. Wood stove worked well and quickly heated the cabin to such a cozy feel. The outdoor hot tub with nearby tree mounted sound system was a highlight. The secluded location makes this place special and we are planning to come back with a bigger group in the future.
