Sproule Creek Mini Cottage

Nelson, BC // $55/night // Rent on Airbnb

If you're looking for a unique and unforgettable vacation experience, the Sproule Creek Mini Cottage in Nelson, British Columbia may be just what you're looking for. This cute and cozy mini cottage is nestled in a small clearing by Sproule Creek and features 19 windows, allowing you to appreciate the surrounding nature and bask in the natural light. 

Designed and built as a hobby project, this semi-rustic mini cottage is simple, basic, and uncluttered, providing a peaceful and quiet retreat for young adventurous travelers on a budget who want a fun and unique nature experience. The kitchenette is equipped with a mini fridge, toaster oven, 2 burner hotplate, and microwave, while water is supplied by a 5-gallon container next to the sink. 

The cottage is heated by a radiant space heater, providing warmth and coziness during chilly nights. The sleeping loft is accessed by a ladder and features a firm double mattress, making it a perfect place to rest and recharge after a day of exploring the surrounding area.

The bathroom and washing/drying facility are located in a separate building, the main residence, which is 30 meters away from the cottage. The bathroom is spacious and shared with other Airbnb guests who may be staying on the property. Cottage guests have 24-hour access to the bathroom, which is just inside the front door of the main residence.

While the cottage is located just an 8-minute drive west of Nelson and 10 minutes to downtown, the surrounding nature and peacefulness of the area make it feel like a true retreat. Guests who visit between April and October will enjoy meeting the sanctuary animals located on the property.

It's important to note that this is a nonconforming accommodation, and guests should read the FULL description and ALL the details before booking. The cottage is best suited to young adventurous travelers on a budget who want a fun and unique nature experience. Additionally, while the wifi in the cottage is good for regular internet use, it may not be optimal for high bandwidth/live streaming.

Overall, the Sproule Creek Mini Cottage offers a unique and unforgettable vacation experience for those looking to disconnect from the stresses of everyday life and reconnect with nature.
