First of all, if you haven't discovered Nelson and the surrounding Kootenay area, you need to go. Second of all, when you go, Mistiso's is a wonderful location to use as a base for your explorations. Downtown Nelson is only a short walk, and so is the lakefront, the visitor centre, and a co-op grocery featuring many natural foods. Just wandering up and down Baker Street is fun with all the funky shops, eateries, galleries, museums and interesting people. On the same block as Mistiso"s there is a currency exchange, an Irish Pub (great hamburgers) and the Civic Theatre (showing films). .

Mistiso's has off-street parking in the rear which is quite a plus in Nelson. I stayed in the Valhalla Suite (upstairs) and found it to be perfect for me. Check out the video on their website and you will see exactly what you are getting. It is obvious a lot of careful thought went into decorating the suite. Quite lovely.

Nelson itself is a great location for exploring the Selkirk Loop. (You can pick up brochures at the Visitor Centre). There are several day trips available, and all offer an interesting taste of the Kootenay region. Don't miss Ainsworth Hot Springs, Kaslo, Creston, Castlegar and Trail. I love the trip going over Salmo pass into Creston and then driving along Kootenay Lake to the free ferry across the lake to Balfour and then a pretty drive back to Nelson.

We came to Nelson for our anniversary and stayed at Mistiso's place. Great location and accommodation. We ended up staying in 2 different suites and both were charming and certainly had all the amenities that you would need. Maria was great providing information with places to go and what was going on in town. (Maria is a very talented artist and you will see her artwork in the suites.) I would certainly recommend staying here! Great coffee shop nearby "Oso's" 10 minute walk, they have great goodies including gluten free.

“Another Beautiful Unit in Mistiso's Place”
Reviewed April 4, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This is our second stay this year at Mistiso's. This time, we had the pleasure of staying in the Valhalla Suite. What a gorgeous studio suite with full kitchen and dinning area. The unique round top window and the angled ceilings gave a very relaxing feeling. And the old wood floors and tasteful decor completed the pleasant ambiance. Everything worked great and the unit was spotless. Bed was comfortable, and all furniture was attractive and in good condition. Towels were big and fluffy, and a pleasure to see natural "mountain sky" hand soap at the sink. Maria continues to ensure her property provides the best experience to her guests. We will continue to make Mistiso's our first choice on any travels to Nelson. The only thing keeping us from giving Mistiso's a 5 "star" is the challenge of accessing parking at the rear of the building. A somewhat rough and narrow (although thankfully short) alleyway. Everything else is top quality. * * NOTE : The Valhalla Suite requires a long staircase to access. If this is an issue, ask Maria for a unit with no stairs.

“Gorgeous Getaway! Centrally Located, Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed October 21, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Mistiso's offers a wonderful getaway!
Our suite supplied all necessary amenities with extra attention to the small details (like knitted slippers)! The full kitchen allowed us to prepare several large meals with ease. The lay out of the suite is easy and efficient; the space is really well used and beautifully decorated, which makes it feel really comfortable!
The location is ideal-easy walking distance to all downtown attractions.
Maria is incredibly warm and hospitable. She offered some great suggestions for hikes and down town events (like live band/swing dancing).
We had a really lovely weekend in Nelson and our stay at Mistiso's was definitely a large part of what made our stay so great!
