As others have mentioned the resort is only a short 10 -15 minute drive from Nelson and easy to find. Perhaps it is a bit of a stretch to call it a resort, but it is in a beautiful spot with lovely views of the lake. Our unit was one of the one bedroom ones with a reasonably equipped kitchen....

When I called the hotel, I explained that I had a bad back so was hoping to get a room with a very comfy bed. When we showed up the owner explained that they had recently bought the hotel and were planning on changing some of the beds. They decided that since I had a bad back they would purchase... More

Spent 4 nights here in September and had a wonderful time the units are very well maintained and had everything you needed. The barbecue area allowed you to cook and sit and enjoy the view of the lake . would highly recommend this location as it has everything to accommodate couples and families alike would certainly return.

The internet was fantastic, the staff were wonderful, and I truly had a great sleep. One of the best I have had in awhile. The do need... More

Stayed here on a Thursday in September. The room was clean and included a basic kitchen with kitchen items, a sofa and small table with two chairs and a T.V.. The bedroom was separate room so that someone could watch T.V. or read without disturbing an early-to-bed person. The room I had was very small for more than one or... More

An extremely clean hotel/motel with well-appointed and spacious rooms. A very good value for people visiting Nelson. They also have a nice little beach very close to the property. Even though this place is about 10km away from the town centre, I'd strongly recommend it.

Super happy with our second stay here. Before we even checked in they kept us informed about the fires. We have booked the same room again for 2016!! I recommend it. It's not fancy but has everything you need.

I got the 2-bedroom-with-kitchenette unit on end of the second floor for a 4-night visit in Sept 2014 with my sister and her husband. Perfect place--quiet, with a fabulous view of the lake--the owners were wonderful and even lugged an extra kayak to the lake for us, answered all our many tourist questions, etc. Reminded me of childhood summer vacations...

It is the people that makes the difference, this is absolutely right. This is more or less a family business. The owner, Shawn and Mandy have great knowledge after the surrounding area, they were there for over 8 years. Both were tirelessly providing great service to their clients. Shawn is doing his very best to maintain the facility in a... More
