I read a review below..some lady was angry about the beach, I'm angry at her! The beach is great...semi-private and is SAND not dirt.
Anyways, I stayed here with three kids and I have to say it was great. We were only planning on staying one night in Nelson on our way to Penticton however after staying one night and eating the amazing complementary breakfast we decided to stay another night...my daughter told me as we all sat for breakfast "this place feels like home".
The facilities are more then adequate and paired with the staff, trust me, whatever need you have will be attended to. I had several funny requests and the service did not disappoint, Shaun, Laurie and every other staff member I met was more then willing to help. Shaun advised a day trip destination that was literally amazing....hike, waterfall and private beach to lounge at PERFECT for my kids (youngest 6). I found the atmosphere great and even better after a long drive.
The beach was great we spent a TON of time there, we are able bodied so we didn't find crossing the road to get to the beach all that perilous again my son who is 6 was fine. The kayaks are fun and the beach is great sadly it is not handicap accessible.
We will be returning for future visits, it really was a fun and stress free stay, great atmosphere thank-you all!
