Enjoyed our stay at Blaylock. New managers are great and very helpful with suggestions and reservations. Can't believe how friendly they are! The tennis court was recently cleaned and we enjoyed playing with some of the other guests. The grounds were amazing. Breakfast was delicious. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. As I was driving away to go to another... More

It's a given that the Blaylock Mansion is a one-of-a-kind place to stay in the area. It's beautiful, over-the-top in 1930's luxury and the setting on the lake is perfect. Well, it was perfect in the 1930's, I'm guessing. Now, if your room is on the front of the building, you get a fair bit of traffic noise from the... More

Last year I put a deposit on Blaylock for my wedding at the time it was Dan running the place and he was extremely accommodating and great to deal with. Little did I know shortly after I went to Blaylock and talked to Dan about my wedding plans the owners changed. I did not find out about this until a... More

Nelson is a great little town, and the Blaylock is warm and inviting manor house situated just outside of town, and on 40+ acres of beautiful gardens. The home, the gardens and proximity to the lake, made for a very relaxing stay. Breakfasts were very good, and Mark and Michelle made wonderful hosts. We look forward to going back.

My partner and I recently spent three splendid nights at Blaylock Mansion while on our honeymoon. The old-world charm and enchantment of this property was ideal for our special escape. Mark and Michelle are excellent hosts. They immediately made us feel comfortable and welcomed us with romantic touches like the fresh flowers plus chilled sparkling wine that was in our... More

My fiancé and I booked a 3 night stay at The Blaylocks Mansion to celebrate our engagement as well as our anniversary, however we only stayed about an hour. We booked almost 2 months in advance and at booking we called to see if they were pet friendly as our dog is a huge part of our little family. As... More

I am sorry that your Blaylock experience was not positive. In fairness Mark and Michelle were trying to be accommodating by making an exception to our no pet policy for you. We try to ensure all our guests have a fabulous experience, and have successfully made exceptions in the past with conscientious pet owners. Clearly this was not the case... More

We just had an amazing weekend in Nelson, BC at the Blaylock Mansion! Michelle and Mark did a wonderful job hosting us from the moment we arrived. We were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary and were greeted with a special platter of strawberries, cheese and bread which was perfect after our 6 hour drive. Our room, the Presidential Suite, was... More

Happy to report that the longstanding tradition for excellent customer service and genuine care for the guest experience continues at The Blaylock Mansion! I am convinced that the new management team of Mark and Michelle are not only going to be a tremendous asset to the property, but also the Kootenay Lake valley as a whole. I am looking forward...

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.
