We stayed in the Dijon Room. Had a nice little sitting area, full table in room, private bath and another small attached room with a cot. This room also has its own private balcony overlooking the lake. Very peaceful at night and in the morning. Virginia is a wonderful hostess, and you will not leave her table hungry. This heritage...

The Grand Lakefront B&B was a great find! The rooms and view are spectacular and Virginia is a wonderful hostess. And Cook --- her breakfasts are wonderful!! Nelson is a Victorian town with a bohemian feel and this heritage house fits in perfectly. The gardens are beautiful and fun to explore, and each of our rooms had a deck with... More

Incredible heritage home. Stayed for two nights, had stayed at another B&B my first night in Nelson, wish I had stay all three here. Breakfast was great, served in the front room of the house. Garden was beautiful, nice little deck to read your book on the back that overlooks the park and water. Virginia was a wonderful host.

My stay at the Grand Lakefront offered a unique B&B experience. Virginia invites you into another world where every room reflects the authentic bohemian feel of Nelson. The house is grand indeed, surrounded by Virginia’s enchanted gardens; it stands proudly above the Kooteney Lake. Virginia chose the Dijon Room for me and it set the stage for a 2-night stay...

We have had a number of wonderful stays at the Grand Lakefront Bed and Breakfast over the last few years. The view of the lake and park from our room is spectacular. The room is clean and very quiet and has a very comfortable bed. Virginia is a great hostess and has lots of great tips for restaurants and places... More

The Grand Lakefront B&B was an excellent place to stay. It is up overlooking the water and mountains. Views from our room's private deck were fantastic, a great place to share a glass of the local wine on a warm afternoon. Virginia was an excellent hostess, with lots of good ideas on walking and resturants. Our room was comfortable with... More

My husband and I stayed at The Grand for three nights in August 2011...what a wonderful, spacious, comfortable, lovely place it was! Ours was the Dijon room--we had our own entrance, a large deck overlooking the lake, all the comforts of home and amazing hosts! The house and gardens are beyond lovely...I could have spent many an hour just walking... More

If you want to get a sense of how Canadians view their 'heritage homes' then a stay here is a must. We stayed for 4 nights in the Master and Dijon rooms. Both have a shared private entrance and balconies with absolutely fantastic views. A fridge is provided on the balcony which was very useful for sitting out with a... More

My husband and I stayed at this B&B with our Australian friends while touring them around to see a bit of BC. We were in the Master Suite and our friends in the Dijon Suite. Each of these suites had its own entrance at the back which we really appreciated. There was a small deck which we shared overlooking the... More
