A beautiful property and lodging by Kootenay lake. Close to Nelson and easy to find. Gorgeous gardens to wander, tennis court and swimming pool. Great breakfast from gracious hosts before departing. A superb place to stay and fell pampered and refreshed and enjoy the history of a classic home.

Truly a remarkable property! The Mansion never ceases to surprise me, every time I'm here a see or learn a little bit more about this historical property and the man who's vision and desire had it built. Selwyn Blaylock would have been a very interesting man to meet, building the Mansion in the 30's, it has truly withstood the test... More

Amazing resort in the best part of Nelson, British Columbia, Canada. Highly highly highly recommend staying here and getting married! I hope one day I can afford to buy a unit in this property and invite all my friends to stay in other units. Put simply, that is how much I appreciate the kind of beauty The Blaylock Mansion has!

My husband and I made reservations to stay at Blaylock at the end of November. We arrived and the place was dark and no one was there! It turned out the owners confused our reservation with someone else's and cancelled ours...we were bummed and they were out of town. Thankfully the Best Western in Nelson was gracious enough to let... More

We are very sorry that your reservation was mistakenly cancelled. We close the Estate for much of the winter haven't had systems in place for the off season. This is completely unacceptable and I am currently in the process of hiring an online booking and reservation management system. We hope to have this up and running within 60 days. I... More

I had noticed the mansion on an earlier trip through the Kootenays and when I Googled it, discovering its rich history and "touring" it via the virtual tour, I knew I had to experience it. I wasn't disappointed! Dan and Louise are excellent hosts and ambassadors for this fairy tale place - a relic from a bygone era of elegance... More

We had a great experience at Blaylock's B&B Elegant mansion with interesting history, outstanding location and gardens.The hosts, Dan and Louise do all they can to make for a wonderful experience and the breakfasts are phenomenal. If you can, you must stay here and also contribute to maintain the history of an iconic mansion in the history of British Columbia

We were lucky enough to be able to get a room at the last minute at Blaycock mansion. It is a lovely home with a beautiful garden and great pool for a refreshing dip. The breakfast was a wonderful way to start our day and our hosts were very welcomming during our stay.

From the amazing setting, stunning grounds, breathtaking gardens, rooms with history at your fingertips, right down to Danny and Louise's special attention to every detail at breakfast - especially the Organic Blaylock Blend Granola, this was a fabulous experience for the entire family. The kids loved the pool and were welcome to explore the grounds. The elegance of the mansion... More

My wife and I rented Blaylock's Mansion for our wedding. The mansion has 1 large "Presidential" suite, and 6 other smaller rooms. We used the large suite for ourselves, and put our wedding party up in the rest of the mansion. We all stayed at the mansion for 3 nights, and we had our wedding photos, ceremony, and reception all... More

We were traveling through Nelson a few weeks ago (July 2013) and decided to see if the Blaylock Mansion could accommodate us on a last minute request. Although they aren't really set up to accommodate people with pets they graciously made an exception for us as we were far from home and traveling with our small dog Elvis. We had... More
