Mistiso's Place Vacation Rentals
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We've now stayed in every suite at Mistiso's place and every room has it's own character and charm. Depending on your circumstances, Maria can arrange something to suit you. If you book early enough that is.. Depending on the time of year, maybe the word has got out or something and Mistiso's isn't such a secret anymore. Whatever the case, it is worth booking early enough to guarantee a spot. The thing about Mistiso's is how little it resembles a hotel and how great it is to walk thru the front door, drop your bags and grab the nearest place to take a load off the mind. It is truly a beautiful and unique experience. The owners aren't too bad to get to know either. There is a reason people stay in that sweet little valley and immerse themselves in the Kootenay Mountain Culture. Good wholesome times! Try the tasty eats at "Bite" a quick stroll out the front towards Baker St. Look for the big yellow truck with the mouth watering aromas that surround this once mail delivery looking rig. A home away from home, what more could a person ask for.

Room Tip: The Purcell suite is the biggest if you have a family and all of the others are great too, just slig...

We were planning on staying in two hotel rooms, but found Mistiso's place and it seemed a better fit for us -- more shared space, and helped make the trip affordable by cooking a few meals at home. Glad we did! We had a great time, lots of space in the Purcell suite for three adults, two teens, and all of our snow gear. Cooked big family meals, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Location is perfect for running out to town or out for groceries. We'll be back next year for sure.

Room Tip: Five of us in the Purcell suite, we moved the master bedroom futon into the living room to put the t...

We booked our accommodation last minute and I'm so happy I came across mistiso's place! Perfect location, you can walk to the grocery store to cook in your own kitchen, that's full of everything that you need, or walk to the restaurants, pubs and bars located on the same street. We stayed in the Purcell suite, and loved having all the extra room. Was very hard to leave. Will definetly come back and I recommend this place to everyone. Thank you Maria!

Mistiso's Place was our choice to stay, in order to celebrate our wedding anniversary. This was our first ever stay at an actual Vacation Rental, but the immediate impression we had was, "home". Our destination was the Silverking Suite Tucked away at the back of the building. Entering the suite was super easy, as explained by the Proprietor, and you walk in to a cozy, and uniquely decorated suite. The suite was immaculately clean, with high quality furniture, and original art created locally. The Kitchen was fully stocked with everything imaginable for cooking utensils. After a quick inventory, I had determined this kitchen could handle a full on Turkey Dinner. Full size Fridge, Oven / Range, Microwave, and Coffee Maker are right there on the counter. Full on built-in dishwasher, and twin sinks to handle quick and easy clean up. Nice little iPod / iPhone dock for a great sound while in the kitchen.

Living room had a Futon Couch, but incredibly high quality. Able to set that up almost instantly, and curl up and watch a movie on the provided TV, and DVD. More than ample lighting, and all of it tasteful, and beautiful really.

The bedroom was cozy, but the bed was super comfortable, sitting atop a "sleigh" style frame. More than enough storage for clothing etc, and spare bedding complete with a duvet that rivalled the futon in thickness.

The bathroom ws complete, more than enough linens and suplies, but spacious and gorgeous. The entire suite has radiant floor heat, but in here is where you feel it best. Barefoot in the bathroom is not a problem even on the coldest day.

In the end, this particular suite was not what we had hoped, however, we definitely made do, and enjoyed it nonetheless. I understand one suite has a large clawfooted tub, which was what we were going for, but our own darn fault since we didn't ask. This particular suite would be highly recommended for parties up to 4, and where you would be away from the suite for most of the day. Working professionals, winter sport enthusiasts, and other travellers would find this to be ideal. Singles, couples and families would do just fine here.

PROS: Right at the core of town, yet tucked away for quiet and privacy. Incredible service. Incredibly clean, and well equipped. Warm and cozy. Quiet and peaceful. Beautiful and original artwork, and decor that more than makes up for the view.

CONS: Parking alley is tricky for long wheel base vehicles (Vans / Trucks), but street parking is just as available. Suite could have used some humidity control. We found it to be on the dry side. The view. Nelson has some incredible views, and this suite does not capture any of it.

Conclusion: The cons listed are entirely superficial, as there is a handy solution to address them. Because of its location, you are literally minutes from spectacular views, shopping, dining, and entertainment, and that is all walking. The service was incredible, and you immediately get a strong feeling that the owner takes great pride in the property. It truly is a home while away from home. I would highly recommend this place over any hotel in town.

If I could live in Nelson it would be in a place just like Mistiso's. We occupied two rooms for 6 people. We were comfortable and impressed with how there seemed to be everything we needed. A crock pot in the kitchen, BBQ tools, even shampoo and extra towels! It felt more like being a preferred guest than a customer. The location is perfect with a great view of the lake from the top floor. This place is lacking nothing and Maria is a lovely host; available and accommodating but not overbearing.

A Great Big Thank you to Maria for making our Christmas at Mistiso's a great experience. We were having a large family get together and Maria was very accommodating and met all our needs(extra plates, cutlery, glasses, chairs). A small Christmas tree and lovely decoration helped make the littlest members time fun!!

All 3 suites we rented were comfortable and clean.. the kitchen had all the items needed to make a festive meal!!

Mistiso's is in a fabulous location, within walking distance to the downtown area and waterfront.

Parking is tight and a bit slippery...the only issue we encountered..

You will love staying here!!!!

Such a lovely location in a beautiful guest house! My family had a relaxing and comfortable stay in Mistiso's Place; we thoroughly enjoyed our warm New Year's holiday. Maria is very generous and accommodating to all guests! Definitely on our 'favourite place to relax' list! The bed in the Kokanee suite was so very comfortable....

Room Tip: The Kokanee suit does not have a stove but has two hotplates. Worked fine for us as my whole family...
