About The Waterfront

The Waterfront is a unique post-and-beam timber home located on the north shore of the West Arm of Kootenay Lake, 10 minutes from the historic town of Nelson, and 15 minutes from the Balfour landing of Kootenay Lake ferry. We are located on the International Selkirk Loop.

Your room, with en-suite bathroom, opens to a private deck and hot tub overlooking Kootenay Lake. Here you will be steps away from a sandy beach* where you can enjoy an early morning or evening swim. Simply relax and soak up the uninterrupted lake views over West Arm Provincial Park, and enjoy the local wildlife, that includes various species of duck, Canada geese, bald eagles, ospreys, blue herons, humming birds, chickadees, otters, and the occasional deer. More tame critters to be enjoyed are Dill and Pickle, our 12-year old tabby cats, who are very sociable kitties but will understand if you want to be left in peace.

Guest Lounge

There is a comfy, cozy guest lounge located adjacent to the guest bedroom, with a selection of reading materials,  board games and a piano for those who would like to practice their musical skills! A large window allows you to enjoy the uninterrupted views and take in all the passing wildlife.
