We spent one night at Blaylock Mansion which was very special. Dan and Louise are retiring soon and will not be there to add their personal touch to your visit. That will be a shame. Not sure who will be taking over. They are both delightful and very helpful with everything from restaurant recommendations to identifying local insects. The mansion... More

The mansion is truly an amazing place of beauty and history. The gardens really keep you grounded with all their glory. Fall is a perfect time to visit the mansion. I must say I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to have the whole mansion and grounds to enjoy with my friends. I would highly recommend the Blaylock.

This is well worth a visit if only to see the extraordinary rock gardens behind the Blaylock Mansion. We had the super large President's Suite and it proved more large than intimate, but for tall guys like myself there is lots of room. The breakfast was healthy and unique; the hosts friendly and informative. They made sure the key was... More

Close to Nelson, on the other side of "Bob", a very well kept property and well managed by Dan and Louise. Dan is a very witty and funny person that makes you feel at home and very welcome. Rooms are perfect and breakfast ready made for you! I spent a beautiful day with my family. A visit and a stay... More

The Blaylock Mansion is a beautiful place with exquisite gardens, we felt very welcomed and enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was made with love and a highlight of the stay. Thank you Brett for having us. We will recommend the Blaylock to anyone traveling through. From your Melbourne friends.

I wish my wife and I could have spent much more time here on our vacation. Not only is the mansion full of history but it has a charm all of its own. The grounds are a network of various ponds, fountains, and gardens you could get lost in and the view is spectacular. On arrival Brett (the owner) found... More

It goes without saying that this mansion is without a doubt the most magnificent b & b to be found west of the Rockies. At a venerable eighty years of age, the original 35 room estate home of Selwyn Blaylock, past president of the Consolidated Mining Company of Trail now hosts guests from all over the world who come here...

Stayed here for one night in July. It's an old mansion with beautifully landscaped grounds, located north of Nelson on the opposite side of the lake from the city. Nice place, especially if you are looking for something out of the ordinary. Would have rated it higher except unlike most B&Bs we have stayed at the owners seemed to take... More

My daughter got married at the Blaylock this past weekend. It is a fairy tale come true. Scenery cannot be matched . Louise, Dan and Brett made us feel like royalty. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The bridal suite was huge and absolutely beautiful. Louise made breakfasts that were fantastic. Thank you for a weekend none of us will... More

I would highly recommend staying in this beautiful property. The mansion was originally designed for Mr Blaylock as a vacation home but is now being exploited as a Bed and Breakfast. The building itself is beautiful and the pool is perfect. Everything is very clean and comfortable and you can see the eye for detail in the interior design. We... More
