This B&B offers something many B&Bs don't get quite right...that true spirit of welcoming people into a home and sharing everything wonderful it has to offer - including the experiences and wonderful personalities of the owners and the staff that work there. One morning while relaxing on the front porch I was listening to the exchange between Sally and one... More

We stopped at this B&B for a one-night stay and although it was good, it could not compete with other B&Bs we stayed at on this trip. As other reviewers noted, the number of rooms make it feel more like an Inn than a B&B. The bathroom was private but not ensuite. The room had an AC unit; but the... More

These folks have everything and it is lovely. the front patio is very nice and the back deck with off street parking is very nice. We loved this place and it is right downtown with oodles of restaurants to choose from. Only downside was our private bathroom was to doors down the hall and was very hot inside before even... More

We stayed in Cloudside Inn in the Tamarack Apt in July. It was over 30 degrees out but not much less in Apt. It had 3 air conditioners and 2 fans and still @ 10 pm it was way too hot. The house is stunning, food great, location great. Just be warned about the Tamarack Apt which is on the... More

As readers might be able to tell from our other reviews, we are not used to dealing with really dissatisfied guests. We didn’t get into the accommodation business to offer an inferior service, but every so often situations arise when there is nothing else that can physically be done to appease or mollify an individual who is seemingly determined not...

This Bed & Breakfast was a great choice for a group of friends on a celebratory weekend. The Cloudside Inn is in a perfect location in Nelson, walking distance to pretty much everything in town. Chris and Sally run a beautiful B&B and are there for all sorts of recommendations and questions, even answering historic questions of Nelson and the... More

My friend and I recently stayed in the Pine room (2 large beds) which was a decent size for the both of us (and all our gear) for 4 nights. We were surprised how quiet the Inn was even though completely full one of the nights. We were equally surprised how loud the road noise is around the Inn and... More

We stayed in the two bedroom unit on the top floor. This was great as it had a great view over the lake and also private entry. The unit was spacious and spotlessly clean with lots of little (and much appreciated) extras. The breakfast (sittings at 8am and 9am) was delicious and sitting around a large table allowed us to...

This was our third stay at the cloudside inn, every time is as good as the previous, the inn is an immaculate georgeous old house with character , the rooms are comfortable and clean and the breakfasts are always tasty and filling. Chris and Sally are very friendly and welcoming and the location is perfect.

It was equally a pleasure to have you folks back! I hope that your decisions on where to live work themselves out, and that you are soon back to walking more easily. Thanks for looking us up again when visiting Nelson. With regards, Sally and Chris More
