About the Retreat

Located in the West Kootenays, Bear Spring Eco Retreat offers novel canvas glamping accommodations, nestled in the Selkirk mountains. With stunning river views, our property includes an event venue, perfect for intimate concerts or weddings, an outdoor shower and edible food gardens. Our 300 acre property is perfect for urbanites seeking an outdoor experience immersed in nature without foregoing any of the comforts of home. Located just 12 minutes from the artist city of Nelson, we're close enough to town to feel connected, yet far enough away to gaze at the Milky Way. Our mostly off-grid, eco-friendly retreat offers modern luxuries including queen size beds and linens, solar lighting and a communal cooking and campfire area. You don't even need to bring food. Add a  Glamper Meal Kitto your stay. Enjoy nature walks, foraging, hiking, biking, swimming, skiing, snowshoeing and wild life viewing at or near our sustainable retreat.

We respectfully acknowledge that we live, gather and farm on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Sinixt Peoples and many diverse indigenous persons, and we honour their ongoing presence on the Land.
