My wife and I came for a wedding. The views were spectacular and the grounds were perfect for the wedding. There are so many places to take great photos that it is crazy. The inside of the mansion is wonderfully interesting and the catering of the wedding itself was outstanding. It is a great place.

Stayed at the Blaylock with my family with three young kids: ages 8,6, and 4 Everyone had a great time at the pool and touring through the grounds. The lake is amazing, with no real boat traffic and a few nice sandbars to lounge on if you can get out there by boat. The grounds are immaculate and are a... More

My husband and I were looking for the perfect place to host our family for the weekend of our wedding. All 24 of us (children as young as 2 and adults into their 70's) stayed at the estate for the weekend. Everything was ready for us when we arrived - Rob ensured the grounds were in tip top shape for... More

We found our room luxurious and a quiet place to spoil ourselves. The grounds where a joy to explore, the breakfast was delicious. The caretakers are very knowledgeable about the history and friendly. We are definitely going back.

We chose this place because of the pool. My wife loves a daily swim and it's not often you find a pool you can do lengths in. The pool is cold - great for laps, not so great for lounging. The hotel was once a residence and the rooms feel homey like you're staying with your grandparents. The hosts are... More

What a place to stay. they have everything from tennis courts to an olympic size pool, from spa to historical gardens. We had a lovely room with a view of the lake. Breakfast was wonderful with your choice of feral, you gut, fresh fruit, scones, and quiche. The rooms are full of history from reading articles to pictures. the mansion... More

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

bironside, Owner at The Blaylock Mansion, responded to this review

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
