Unique Spectacular Clifftop Home overlooking Kootenay Lake. Hi, I'm Ross. I crafted & hand built my home to maximize an indoor / outdoor living experience. Ravens Roost is a magical place - a space to relax, create, be inspired or simply hang out in one of the hammocks. The view from the terrace & the master bedroom are breathtaking & the outdoor shower is the best!

Ravens Roost is suitable for romantic getaways, family fun, golfers, adventurers, naturists & as a private personal retreat.

The space

Enjoy preparing meals in the fully equipped kitchen with large island and eating on the terrace or deck, while watching ravens, eagles and ospreys. There is a covered outdoor area right off the kitchen as well as open to the sky areas - and a BBQ to indulge in the great Canadian summer pastime.
Watch the full moon rise across Kootenay Lake and be awed. Lay a fire in the wood-stove on cool evenings or have a bonfire outside under the stars. Sleep in peace and quiet with the sound of waves on the rocks far below. Practice yoga on the deck in the morning - it is a stunning way to start the day.
Enjoy the privacy-screened beautiful outdoor shower or opt for the cosy indoor shower in the claw foot tub - the choice is yours.
Bedroom #3 "The Loon" is a 16 ft self contained caravan with its own covered deck and a small double bed and seating area inside - ideal for youngsters or for those young at heart.

Guest access

Ravens Roost is your home while you stay here and all parts of it are accessible.

Interaction with guests

I shall be at the house to greet you and give an orientation of the home, the property and its pleasures. I will be coming and going discreetly to tend to lawns and gardens from Nelson. I can be reached by phone for queries if needed.

Other things to note

Ravens Roost is built on private land above the lake and runs off its own septic system. To respect the environment, please be conscious of this and do not flush paper when using the toilet. Please wash all pots or pans or load the dishwasher before you leave. A blue bin is provided for all recyclables and I shall pick up the garbage when I come to tend the garden.

Well trained house pets are welcome in the downstairs area of the house as long as they do not sit on the couches and outdoor furniture. Please be aware that the house is not fenced in if you are bringing your furry friend with you and that there are lots of squirrels in the trees and often deer that roam through the yard. Dogs do love to chase squirrels!

It is a non-smoking house and if you do feel the need to smoke please do so outside and do it with care for gardens and lawns.

I built this house with love - please treat it with respect just like you would your own home.

Great location, awesome patio, view that you wish you could see everyday. Perfectly suited for 4 adults but not for 6 as advertised. Would go back with another couple of friends.

Ross's home is magical. Every detail shows his house was built with love. It doesn't just have an outdoor shower -- it's a respite carved into the rock, laced with delicate ferns and hostas. It's not just an incredible view, it's a vista enhanced by sitting areas throughout the home and outdoor space. Mexican tiles and rugs throughout bring a cozy flair, referring to a life well-traveled. And did I mention the view?? Yes, but I have to bring it up again. Perched on a cliff, overlooking Kootenay Lake, facing south to the ferry route and beyond... it's heavenly. We saw that moonrise he mentions in his listing. And even on a summer holiday weekend, there are no crowds. TIP: the beach is a 2-minute drive away. Turn left out of the driveway and look for the Queens Bay Wharf Road sign a few roads away. It's easy to launch your small boat or floaty mattress from this little beach, with parking for about 6 cars.

The best thing about Ross' place is listening to the waves of Kootenay Lake crash along the shore while relaxing in one of the patio hammocks. Ross' place had a gorgeous view of the lake, a fully equipped kitchen, and comfortable accommodations. a great escape for a romantic celebration, or a close group of friends.

Let me start by saying Ross's place is absolutely beautiful. If you want peace and beauty all wrapped up in rustic comfort, that is what we had. The tranquility of sitting out on the deck watching the ferry's go by was a great way to unwind after a day of touring about on our Harley's. We loved everything about Ross's place, the pictures are true to what you get, but once you get there you will be further amazed when you see the place in person. Ross added a nice touch to our welcome with some beautiful fresh flowers in a vase in the kitchen. I can't say enough good about our stay. Thank you thank you.

We travel to the Nelson/Kaslo area every summer, up until this summer we used to camp but decided to go the Air BnB route this time around. The pictures of Ravens Roost do not do it justice. It's incredibly beautiful, and truly a sanctuary. The outdoor shower is to die for and we really enjoyed the indoor/outdoor speakers.The cabin is perfectly situated right between Nelson and Kaslo. There are so many things to do and see, with many beaches, hikes, and site seeing opportunities just a short distance away. Ross was so easy to communicate with around checking in and while we were there. We would definitely stay here again.

I am a local, born and raised in Nelson. I spent my youth on the lake and out in the back country in epic champagne powder. I love to be outdoors on the water (especially on a catamaran), in the old growth forest and up on top of a mountain peak. I am a musician and singer / song writer, a lover of beauty and I really like to laugh a lot and have as much fun as I can. In my early twenties I discovered Mexico and fell in love with the people and their culture and spent many winters there until I became a father. I happily returned to the Kootenays full time to raise my daughter. I am also a builder and I was blessed to design and construct my home on this stunning property above Kootenay Lake. I know this area like the back of my hand and some of these places are still relatively unexplored. If you are interested, these can be shared - as long as it's our secret!

I returned to Mexico this winter to explore new possibilities and a new life with my partner Tisana - we met in Nelson 11 years ago. My daughter is now 19, loving life at UBC and is delighted that I have finally left the nest. Part of this new life is engaging in Airbnb and opening up my home to share with folks who enjoy creativity, nature and life. I am excited to meet you and welcome you to enjoy this very special space that is my home. Mi casa, su casa.
