Serenity Views, located on the shores of Arrow Lakes, has breathtaking views of lake and mountains and is close to Hot Springs facilities open year-round. It is a unique lodging facility nestled on a 4-acre forested property. The 550 sq. ft. studio suite provides complete living accommodation with access to outdoor living, pathways and lakeside recreation. Our guests have privacy and the sense of freedom to enjoy the area in their own personal way.

Stayed for 2 nights during recent trip to Canada. We like to have "rest days" when we do very little and Serenity Views was just perfect for that. Quiet and away from the highway but with great views and a nice little walk to the water. The only reason we headed out at all was

Thanks for your review, Les. It was a pleasure hosting you and Joy during your Nakusp stay, and we hope you will return. With regards to the patchy internet, that indeed is one of the few downfalls of living in a remote mountainous area. We will continue to work on a solution for this issue. We should have mentioned when you came that guests are welcome to come sit on one of the decks at our house where the internet signal may be better for those times when it is necessary to be connected. We feel blessed to live in such a beautiful area, and enjoy sharing our property, especially with visitors from distant lands. Thanks for choosing Serenity Views!

We have stayed at Serenity Views a couple times, in the Camping Cabin. We absolutely love it there. It is rustic and cozy (there is a suite option as well, but we enjoy the cabin a lot). You wake up to a view of the lake and are just a short walk from the water. The woods

This review was written by someone who has never stayed at, nor visited, Serenity Views. If this person had in fact been on our property, they would realize that there are no neighbours nearby. We are surrounded on two sides by a road, on the third side there is a 16 acre property which is not inhabited, and the fourth side is the lakeshore! It is a 4 acre property with large conifer trees on it. The Studio Suite is a 500 sq. ft space, which would be too small for the group that the reviewer speaks of. We usually have 2 people stay in the suite, with a possibility of 4 if there is a family coming. Serenity Views is, indeed, pet friendly. Many guests bring their dogs, and we have even had the occasional cat come for a visit! Well behaved pets are welcome on our property. It is unfortunate that this reviewer has been allowed to submit a review without having ever seen our beautiful property!

My husband and I and our two small dogs stayed for three nights. The accommodations are excellent. It was very relaxing and quiet and not far to drive into Nakusp where we found the town as welcoming as we did when we arrived at Serenity Views. Thank you Marilyn and Brian!

Thanks for your kind words! We appreciate you taking the time to tell us and and future guests about your vacation. We enjoy the peace and "serenity" of our location and are pleased to share our property with others who are like-minded. We look forward to your return.

Harassed by neighbor. Couldn't turn on the radio or let kids play outside. Having dinner on the deck would lead to neighbor coming over and barking orders. Owners did nothing after complaints. We had to leave after 3 days. Very unprofessional

This review was written by a person who has never stayed at Serenity Views. If they had ever been on our property, they would know that there are no neighbours in the vicinity! Serenity Views is located on 4 acres of forested property and is surrounded by roads on two sides, the lakeshore on the bottom portion of the property, and an uninhabited 14 acre property on the fourth side. As well, the owners of Serenity Views live right on the property and are aware of any uninvited visitors. We respond immediately to any issues involving our guests. Our goal is to enable our guests to enjoy their vacation in the peace and solitude that Serenity Views provides. This reviewer was likely part of a group of people who was evicted from a separate property that we manage for friends. That property is located 16 km from Serenity Views, and has no connection to the Studio Suite (the subject of this review). This particular group was given several warnings regarding breaking the rental agreement for the vacation home, disturbing the peace and quiet of the neighbourhood, and after 4 days of complaints from the neighbours, they were evicted. It is unfortunate that this reviewer has been allowed to submit a review for a lodging that he has never even set foot on!

Hello Margie, Nice to hear from you! We hope you are doing well. Unfortunately, we are totally booked for those days. A family has booked both the cabin and suite for a family event. Thanks for asking about the negative reviews. Yes - those negative posts have been an issue for us. They were written by people who have never stayed at Serenity Views. We managed another Nakusp property for a short time, and had to evict a group of people who retaliated by making vile posts everywhere. We have tried to get help from Trip Advisor as we don't agree with allowing false reviews, but they don't respond. We are still pet friendly at Serenity Views and do, indeed, allow pets of all kinds, including cats! We feel that pets and owners should enjoy nature together, and as long as the animals are kept under control and the owners clean up after them, we are totally okay with pets coming and staying in the cabin or suite. This is our 9th year of operation and we have never had an issue with pets. Another post written by the same group of people complained about our neighbours, which you will know is impossible, as we don't have any neighbours nearby!! We continue to work hard at providing excellent accommodation for visitors, and hope that the good reviews will eventually override the bad ones! Sorry we couldn't accommodate you this time, Margie. Let us know if you have other dates that would work for you,. We would love to have you, your friends and your pets return for another stay! Best wishes, Brian and Marilyn

"Serenity Views is a great place to sit back and relax and enjoy the view!"
"Camping cabin is the most secluded."
"1 The wifi connection is a good speed. 2 Hire a canoe from Marilyn and Brian and go out on the lake to go fishing. 3 Mosquitoes aren't really a problem although you might get the odd nip. 4 All the supplies you need can be found downtown."
