We designed the suite with In-floor geothermal heating, air exchange for the best indoor air quality and comfort of our guests. Only the best materials were used: solid wood, stone, low VOC paints to make for the healthiest environment possible. The suite is pet-free, no exceptions, to accommodate people with allergies. At 400 square feet, the suite is ideal for a single traveler or a couple, but would accommodate a family with up to 2 children. The suite consists of a living room, kitchen, bathroom, and 1 bedroom. The living room has a brand new leather sofa that unfolds into a full bed with a comfortable mattress ( BeautyRest) for additional sleeping spots, an armchair and an antique cabinet containing a TV. The bedroom has a queen bed with a brand new memory foam queen mattress, bedside tables, a closet and a dresser. The bathroom is compact with a toilet, a shower, a sink and a washer and dryer. The kitchen is beautiful with its wall of windows and the view of the valley, custom made walnut cabinets and granite counter tops. Other features: WiFi ( can be turned off on request), washer/dryer, fully equipped kitchen, TV, Netflix. While staying at the BioBio Suite you will have an option to buy our farm fresh organic produce, Kootenay Local Agricultural Society certified. Please enquire about our farm/pond permaculture tours and workshops on farm crafts: milking, cheese, butter, sour cream and yoghurt making, sourdough bread baking, fermenting, preserving. We are new to vacation rentals, will you give us a try?More

Getting around
A car is recommended, but you can also get around by bike ( about 30 min to town and 1hr back) or take a bus to and from town ( 4 buses a day on weekdays). It stops right by our gate and takes you to Baker Street in Nelson in 20 min.
How to get there
About 6 km west of Nelson on Hwy 3, immediately east of Taghum Bridge take Granite Road. As it curves away from the river ( by the way, that's Taghum Beach there, a nice sandy beach in the summertime), there will be 2 roads on your right. First, Fisherman Lane and immediately after that, Bedford Road. Take Bedford Road and follow it until it T's into Blewett Rd. Take a left on Blewett Rd and we are about 400 meters away from the intersection. Red and green house, arrowhead fence, first( lower) driveway.
