The SpaceI am located at the bottom of a mountain, on a quiet residential street but close to all that Revelstoke has to offer. The great outdoors is located in my back yard and access to hiking, cycling and biking, is just minutes away. Bordering on a forest, the home feels secluded and cosy with great mountain views.
The suite is 1 large bedroom with approximately 1000 square feet and has a separate private laundry room. A hide-a-bed is provided for extra guest and can accommodate 2 people. If needed, the host also offers double air mattresses with a power inflation system.
A great feature of the suite is the large, open area living space which includes a living room, dinning room,sitting room and kitchen. It is centred by a massive stone, wood burning fireplace that helps to keep the space cozy. The suite includes a private entrance, flat screenTV, a DVD player, access to wi-fi, with direct access to a large backyard and woodland walking trails.
It has 1 covered parking space and 1 open air parking space, laundry facilities, and a fully stocked kitchen (stove, fridge, microwave, dishes flatware, cooking utensils, spices etc.) If something is missing, host will provide guests with all reasonable requests. Guest AccessHiking and walking trails are right outside the back patio door, with a large backyard and bonfire for guests to enjoy. We can accommodate up to two cars and guests have private entrance to the suite and also a private laundry room .
There is a community centre in town that features a swimming pool (with sauna, slide, hot tub, climbing wall, tot pool, etc.), gym, work out room and a major community park which accesses the river valley walkway.
The 2nd floor areas are off limits as the host lives here on the property. ( unless invited. of course.) Limited wood (1 large trunk full) is available upon arrival, however extra wood can be purchased. All access to wood is on the honour system and the host requests an extra 7$ per trunkful if guest needs it. Interaction with GuestsThe host lives on the 2nd floor, but the suite itself is very private. Interaction will only be as much as the guest(s) prefers but host is open to visiting with guests if desired. The host enjoys people and Chaucer,(the dog,) really likes making new friends. The NeighborhoodI love my quiet neighbourhood, the gigantic trees, the friendly neighbours and being able to greet all of the very well behaved dogs that come to meet me on my walks with Chaucer, my 2 year old puppy. Most of all, I enjoy being able to walk through the forest behind my home and run into the wildlife that inhabits it, including other humans, my neighbours and horses.
The riding academy and horse stables are just down the road from my home.
We are less then five minutes from all amenities including the ski hill, the recreation centre, and the hospital.

The entire suite was renovated in late 2014 to accommodate guests needs. Hostess can and will provide requests from guests to the best of her ability and within reason.
Revelstoke is bear country so al guests need to keep their garbage in a safe place. The laundry room can accommodate extra garbage until pick-up day which is once per week. This suite is available for booking a minimum of 3 weeks at a time.
