Nelson House B & B
ne of the fascinations of bed and breakfasts is the personal touch. We have all stayed in anonymous hotels - lamps bolted to the tables - only your tv for company. Wake up in a B & B and it should feel as unique as someone's home. While respectful of its heritage, we know that this century-old house now reflects us.
As corner rooms, all of our lodgings are airy and bright. Well-rested guests often compliment the quality of beds and linens. Every room is equipped with a hairdryer.
Maximum double occupancy in our rooms but check out the discount for singles in rooms sharing a bath. We have a two night minimum stay in High Season but if our calendar shows a room available for just one night, we welcome your enquiry!
The "Hollywood" room (pictured above) is a sunny, art-deco tribute to the glitz and glamour of the original. The bed is a top of the line, queen-sized Serta "Cool Action Gel" memory-foam. The ensuite bathroom, with red brick, brass fittings and the glow of glass brick is truly fit for a Star. Besides being fun, the room reminds us that Vancouver is a major television and film hub. Featured here are a flat-screen cable HDTV plus DVD/VCR and a fabulous old movie collection. Prepare cocktails at your mini-bar and camera...action!

The "Bombay" room(pictured left & above) is for Raj romantics. It is our homage to British India and things done properly! This spacious main floor room features a queen bed, a large desk, comfy armchairs, Edwardian wainscoting, a built in chest of drawers, ceiling fan, bay window and original stained glass. There is a flat-screen cable HDTV for your viewing pleasure. Lastly, an antique, clawfoot tub(with shower)in the ensuite bathroom is the perfect place for a "G & T" and a long soak after the hunt.
The "Cabin"(pictured right & below) is where you sleep like a lumberjack and that's okay! Sit by the warmth of the stove, a mini-fridge for the beer, flat-screen cable HDTV for the game - what more?There's a comfy queen(Serta "Cool Action Gel" memory-foam) and a full(fold in the middle type)sofabed. The ensuite bathroom features an Emily Carr-inspired stained glass, antique dresser and wraparound wall mural. If you happen to be hefty-sized, be advised - the shower is for the slim at heart. All in all, this woodsy Canadian experience may have you dreaming of Mounties.
"Vienna" (pictured below) overlooks our front garden. A flowering vine clambers romantically up to the windowsill and adds to the room's Old World charm. The European, antique brass bed is Queen-sized. Old-fashioned ceiling fan, mahogany desk & other furnishings complete the ambience. Only a cable, flat-screen TV intrudes from this century.
This room is also more budget conscious, with a lighted mirror & vanity sink in the room and a hallbath shared with our Sailor's room.

Our travel-themed rooms are very tongue in cheek. Here is a video review of Nelson House B & B from a prize-winning young filmmaker who recently stayed with us.
"Best gay-friendly property - Nelson House. Breakfast takes a gourmet approach with finger-licking mains such as Swiss cheese and asparagus omlets. Close to Robson St., Stanley Park and Barclay Heritage Square."
