Loved this place. Cute room. We stayed 1 night but this place is perfect for a week or more. 1 bedroom room with kitchenette. Full size fridge. Comfortable bed. Barbecues on site. Their breakfast is good. Lake is across the road. Shawn was very helpful. Even when we got lost and had to phone three times to find the place.... More

We were looking for a venue for a small family party, and I'm so glad we found this place! Shawn and Amanda were so accommodating in so many ways - and really bent over backwards to make sure we got what we needed. They made our whole party, including 2 dogs, feel extremely welcome. It's so close to wonderful Nelson,... More

We spent a pleasant week in Nelson at this resort, and particularly enjoyed our morning coffee on the patio. Several days after arriving home, I realized I did not have my jewelry case. I called the resort, they followed up promptly, located my jewelry and Amanda had it in the mail within 48 hours. I am beyond impressed!

Had a great experience at the Kokanee Glacier Resort. The resort overlooks Kokanee Lake and although there are no views from the rooms the oweners have strategically placed chairs on the property to take advantage of the view. There is a also a sitting area for smokers and two barbeques. The rooms are actually one and two bedroom suites with... More

Stayed here with my husband, and two boys (5 and 2 years old) for three nights. I was very impressed with the cleanliness, the facilities and the thought that had been put into making this resort user friendly and comfortable. There are outdoor eating areas, view points and a little play area. It rained for the three days we were... More

Stayed here for 4 days and was treated so well here. It's a 10 min drive to town but has a bus closeby if you don't want to drive. We had motorcycles and they were safe right outside the door and no concerns leaving them parked here. This is a quiet and relaxing place perfect as we chose to not... More

This place is the bee's knees. lovely people, lovely setting. the rooms are clean and cozy and the bed is super comfortable. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The view is unbelievable and the motel grounds are quiet. We had a swim at their beach it was fantastic! I can't say enough. It's about 8 minutes... More

A lovely getaway near Kokanee Creek and Nelson. Kudos and thanks to staff who noticed and returned a forgotten item before we even realized it was missing! We stayed during June, and enjoyed lovely breakfasts with a personal touch in the communal room- much nicer than the HI Express! Thanks, KGR!
