On a Saturday in Nakusp

It is very beautiful and peaceful at Serenity Views, but venturing into the Village of Nakusp is also a great experience.  Here are some ideas for trip to town on a Saturday:

Nakusp Farmer's Market Sign

Each Saturday from May to October,  there is a Farmer’s Market, where you can find all sorts of crafts, jewellery, baking, plants, produce and even music. Down the road from the market, visit Home Grown Market and Juice Bar which features organic produce. There are several other interesting stores in Nakusp, mostly along the main street (Broadway), but taking the side streets will bring you to a chocolate shop, an art gallery, and other unique shops.

A trip to town must include a walk along the waterfront walkway where you can see all sorts of flowers in bloom. Grab a coffee from one of the coffee shops and enjoy the gorgeous views!  If you feel like taking a dip in the Arrow Lake, there is a beautiful sandy, public beach at the west end of the waterfront walkway.

The Nakusp Visitor Centre is also a great place to visit while in town, if you need maps and directions, and other ideas for activities!

Approaching Holiday Season!!

It has been a great fall for Serenity Views.  The Nakusp area is a beautiful part of the country to live in – especially when the leaves are changing colour in the fall.

We are now preparing for the winter, and are eagerly awaiting our first snowfall!!  So far, we have only had a skiff of snow which disappears quickly with our mild temperatures.  The photo below shows our shoreline and the mountains in the distance which have some snow.   Serenity Views Shoreline The Village of Nakusp is looking very festive these days with businesses and street lights decorated for Christmas.  We have also been busy decorating at Serenity Views, and are so thankful to be living in the middle of a forest in B.C. where we have an endless supply of aromatic cedar boughs!!  As well, the Studio Suite is looking festive with lights on the deck and holiday decorations inside.

We are now accepting bookings for December and January, including Christmas and New Year’s.  If you are thinking about getting away and would like a quiet, peaceful retreat, we would be pleased to accommodate you.  We look forward to hearing from you!

A walk along the waterfront

We have had a very wet spring, but it appears that the sun is finally beginning to shine!  A walk along the waterfront promenade in the Village of Nakusp can lift anyone’s spirits.  Views of the lake and the surrounding mountains cannot be beat.  As well, the well-kept lawns, bushes and flowers along the promenade make it a pleasure to go for a walk.  There are numerous benches along the 1 kilometre walk where you can sit and enjoy the view, while finishing off a coffee from one of the unique coffee shops in Nakusp.

Do not be surprised if everyone you meet says “hello”.  Nakusp is a very friendly Village, and residents walking along the waterfront will often stop and chat with you.

Season’s Greetings from Serenity Views

As the snow accumulates, cross country skiiers and snowshoers are looking forward to getting out and enjoying the many trails in the area of Nakusp.

After an invigorating day of exercise, it is always great to travel up to the Nakusp Hot Springs and enjoy a soak in the healing waters.  Winter hours for the Nakusp Hot Springs are from 1:00 to 9:00 p.m.

We are presently having a Winter Special!   Each booking in January for 3 nights or more will receive 2 single swim passes for the Nakusp Hot Springs.  Contact us if you would like more details, or would like to book specific dates.

To all our friends, family and guests, we wish you a joyous holiday season, and all the best in 2012!
