I had an amazing weekend with friends at the Blaylock Mansion in Nelson BC. As you drive up the beauty of the buildings and grounds take your breath away. We chose to go in the Wintertime so we were lucky enough to have the ambience of the snow as well, which was absolutely beautiful. Inside we were greeted by Mark...

We planned a small high school reunion and the Blaylock Mansion was the perfect place to gather with old friends. Mark and Michelle were very welcoming hosts - we were immediately made to feel right at home in this gorgeous mansion. Blaylock was gorgeous in the Springtime, with the snow slowing melting and uncovering the beautiful trees. I encountered some...

The Blaylock Mansion is anything but ordinary. Located just outside Nelson, embedded in a large garden and overlooking the lake, this historic and very well kept mansion, is the perfect retreat and worth a stay in itself. Add to that the great service and friendliness of the hosts, Mark & Michelle, and you have a perfect combination. If you are...

For years we have driven past the Blaylock Mansion and wondered what treasures lay hidden inside. We finally satisfied our curiosity with a two-night staycation in November. We enjoyed every minute. The historical memorabilia was fascinating, the house very grand with beautiful rooms to explore. The weather being cold and drizzly we mainly stayed indoors (the sun-room with its cozy...

There are many reasons to drive the scenic Highway 3A in the Kootenays -- the mountainous, lake scenery and historic towns, are examples. But the piece de resistance will be a stay at Blaylock Manor near Nelson. With heritage decor, amazing gardens, welcoming hosts and a tranquil ambience you feel you have stepped back into yesteryear, a very gracious yesteryear.

I really can't say enough good things. The hosts, Mark and Michelle were most gracious and welcoming. They were very knowledgeable about the estate and its history. We were made to feel at home and able to enjoy the home and gardens. The room was lovely and breakfast superb. Look forward to a return visit.
