Brand new ( ready to rent May 2015), lovingly built by a Swiss carpenter eco suite on our organic farm. Enjoy the fresh air and space of the country setting only a 10 min drive from downtown Nelson. 30 minutes to Whitewater Ski Resort.

The property is situated on a quiet road, away from the highway, but easy access from town. There are no steps from the parking to the suite and none within. The suite has its own entrance and a fenced in yard separate from the yard of the main house. It has a lovely private patio.
The suite has lots of natural light from its many windows.
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...

My family and I recently stayed at the beautiful Bio Bio farm, in its pristine and fully kitted-out guest suite. The 3 of us were warmly greeted by Martin, Tatiana's husband. We also got to meet the owners' friendly, bright and polite sons. One of them and my son Yann really hit it off and became friends in no time...

Management response:

Thank you very much, Florence and Darren!

So glad we stayed at the Bio Bio Farm Suite instead of in town. So quiet, clean, and private. Tanya and Martin, along with their sons, gave us a wonderful tour of their farm and how they are homesteading. We loved being able to pick our own raspberries for breakfast! The trip to town is not long and we enjoyed...

Management response:

We had a great relaxing stay with our toddler. We had everything we needed and were well taken care of by our hosts. The property is gorgeous with a stunning view of the valley and lots of outdoor space dedicated to the suite. The tour of the farm/homestead was a highlight as well and we only just missed a new...

Thank you so much Joel! It was a pleasure hosting your lovely family and we would love to see you all again.

How to get there
Airport: Castlegar: 32.0 km
Ferry: Balfour: 56.0 km
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.
