Nelson is a charming town, and the Cloudside Inn is perfectly in character - only a block from downtown, efficiently run by live-in owners and their staff who answer all needs. The breakfasts are amazing - better than any restaurant! Rooms are beautifully restored in an old historic pair of homes, with baths either shared or private (typically down the... More

A perfect location downtown, professionally run and a charming old building to boot. Two comfortable nights here with memorable breakfasts. Be aware of stairs as it is multi level. Thoroughly recommend particularly as everything worthwhile in Nelson is within walking distance.

In a beautifully renovated historic home, this B & B charms at first sight. A large patio with seating areas and flower boxes greet the visitor on climbing the winding front steps to the entrance. We had the large King 'Willow' Suite on the first floor which had a huge front window looking over the deck, the town, and in... More

Stayed here for two nights on a trip around the Rockies. Super spotless B&B, super room and bed [we had the giant suite on the first floor!] and we slept like logs! Very short walk to the main drag in town [4 or 5 minutes walking slow!] so what's not to like? Certainly not breakfast cooked up by Chris -... More

Was there July 18, 2016. Nice people, beautiful old home. Cool pics from the travels of Chris and Sally.. shame did not get to meet them! Everything was perfect, very comfortable bed, I had the suite with the en-suite which was nice, although a small room. Would certainly recommend Cloudside Inn to anyone travelling to Nelson, BC.

Absolutely fell in love with this little gem in the heart of Nelson. Great location. The owners were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us during our stay. The room was beautifully furnished with individual character which complemented the beautiful heritage building. We can't wait to stay with you again Sally and Chris on our next visit to Nelson.

Spent 2 nights here in extremely comfortable tamarack suite on the 3rd floor. Delicious breakfasts served with yogurts, fruit, cereal, and hot items which varied by day from eggs and bacon to souffle and fresh muffins. Beds comfortable and hosts exceptional. STAY HERE.

My room had a great view of the mountains, and was a short walk to downtown Nelson. Everything in the room was spotless, and my bathroom was cleaned while I ate breakfast. And breakfast was always delicious, with lots of choices. On my last morning, I had to leave before breakfast sadly, but was given a yummy brown bag breakfast... More

Very comfortable beds, a warm welcome and a fine breakfast are slightly let down by the general tiredness of the fixtures and fittings. They're not quite old enough to be charming, or even quirky, but not new enough to suggest the quality to which the Cloudside aspires. Nevertheless, a great location within a short walk of all that Nelson has... More
