About our home

Come to check out Canada, country living at its best here in the heart of the Kootenay’s. Our private home is quite comfy in a totally landscaped yard, firepit, wireless internet, satalite tv, 32" flatscreen, in the bedroom, one T.V the front room and one in the family room with the Wii game. Beautiful kitchen with all the modern conveniences, dishwasher, 4 burner stove with wall oven, and micro-wave, large variety of dishes, pot pans, as I love to cook. The bbq is on a covered deck, with a gas fireplace on the deck, so can be used year round. Patio doors open from the family room onto the 30 by 14 ft covered deck for out door dining and living and at the end of the deck is a hottub, can't beat this for a nice relaxing day after skiing or snowshoeing. Nice second bedrooms upstairs with private bath, tub and shower. Master bedroom, has large king size pillow top bed, pocket door to bathroom/ laundry room. We have 2 bicycles for use. During your stay take advantage of country living, do some hiking, snow shoeing( we have two sets) cross country skiing ( we have two pairs) Pick-up at airport can be arranged right to the house from my daughter who lives in Salmo. Or rent a car. Airport we use is in Spokane washington, 2 hours away, great city.
Salmo has beautiful scenery, from day trips to Nelson, Trail, take the ferry to Crawford Bay, check out the many artists in the area. Fresh fruits and honey farming in Creston. The beautiful Kootenay lake, and arrow lakes, Enter the many fishing tournament on the one of the lakes. Many types of wild life to check out, deer, elk, bears, wildturkeys, many different types of birds. Beautiful sunsets.
3 ski hill, 2 within 1/2 drive Red Mt and Whitewater, one in our back yard, 5 mins away.
Many, many golf courses in the area, Granite point, Balfour, Castlegar, to name a few. And one in our back yard, again 5 min drive.
