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

Drove by the mansion estate since we were kids and always curious. Stayed there for 1st anniversary and it did not disappoint! Stayed the night in the presidential suite. Huge and spotless. So peaceful and quite and we were left free to explore the whole house and the rest of the garden estates after relaxing in the pool. Our hosts... More

We stayed at The Blaylock Mansion a couple of months ago. Unfortunately it was during their off season so it was very very quiet. I originally thought it was a B&B but the breakfast is a separate charge and very pricey. As it turned out we were not able to get a hot breakfast and was only offered granola so... More

based on TripAdvisor reviews, we stayed at the Blaylock Mansion. It was a little pricier, but hey one has to splurge once in a while! It’s an amazing old English style mansion (16,000 sq. ft.) located a few miles out of town, built 80 years ago by one of the bosses at the Cominco Mine in Trail. It has a... More

I have just returned having spent three days in Nelson BC. One of the best decisions we made was to stay with Dan and Lousie McGauley at the unique and gracious country estate The Blaylock Mansion. From the antique-filled bedroom with original heavy bronze window locks, to watching the late afternoon sun slip behind the lakeside mountains while enjoying a... More

Absolutely beautifully restored and maintained mansion with grounds in the gorgeous Nelson environs. All internal areas of the mansion that we accessed were spotlessly clean, the hosts Dan & Louise were friendly, welcoming and willing to share their wealth of local knowledge. The rooms were very nice & comfortable and the ensuite was well appointed. The only down side to... More
