The Ayrshire is situated halfway between the towns of Castlegar and Nelson in the west Kootenays of British Columbia and is about a 7 hour drive from either Calgary or Vancouver. We are in the community of Crescent Valley, at the southern end of the Slocan Valley and situated near the beautiful Crescent Valley beach park on the Slocan River.
We also offer RV and tent camping sites on the property at The Ayrshire - just a stroll from the barn! This is included in the price.
During the weekend, you and your guests may want to stay on the farm to visit, or you may want to explore the local area. The Slocan Valley Rail Trail, runs below us and is a well used recreational corridor offering 50 km of non motorized, scenic activity. It is a popular attraction for cycling, walking and bird watching. The 5 km section below us is paved which makes it even easier for all ages to enjoy.
A slightly longer walk will take you to the Dam Inn Pub. These are all accessible via the rail trail.
Note: If you would like more time to explore the local area, perhaps hiking, golfing, zip lining or visiting the vibrant local communities, it may be possible to secure an additional night for your guests at The Ayrshire. Please contact us for availability.
