A special place to experience solitude necessary to re-connect with ourselves. A short boat ride across Kootenay Lake, from the City of Nelson, British Columbia, Hidden Creek Art and Ecology centre was built with the objective of sustainability, energy efficiency and local & natural materials in mind. The property includes a yurt for sleeping and/or meditation, a straw bale residence with 4 beds, and a large studio for yoga, meditation and arts practice. A short walk from the lake, the Centre is nestled among cottonwood, cedar trees and ponderosa pines to provide an inspirational, contemplative and intimate settting. Away from the distractions of daily life, staying here allows one the time to renew and focus on their practice and experience a sense of tranquility. People looking to escape must consider whether or not this is the right environment for them. Transport to and from the retreat is by motor boat. Supplies are delivered on a weekly or as needed basis. It is ideal for private or group retreats.
