Are you an adventure seeker?

Keystone cabin is the perfect balance between solitude and convenience. Rustic yet comfortable. Unique. Adventurous… The quintessential ‘cabin in the woods’.


Keystone Cabin is part of For-Rest Retreat


Feel like you are away from it all and still be only 10 minutes from your car. Explore all the Kootenays have to offer including Nelson, Kaslo, Castlegar, Rossland and more. A backcountry style off-grid cabin in a perfect location to explore the Kootenays. Enjoy privacy and be close to nature at the base of Keystone Mountain. This cabin is accessed by a 0.7 km hiking trail on private property. Far enough to enjoy some solitude, close enough to explore the area. Close to world class ski hills and backcountry skiing, excellent hiking and mountain biking opportunities and even private hiking trails right out your door.

About the Cabin

This is a unique space for up to 6 guests. The cabin is off-grid but has solar lights and a USB, 12V, 120V charging station for your mobile devices. Heat is wood stove and cooking is either on the wood stove or the bbq (with burner) right outside the door. There is no plumbing so the toilet is an outhouse. There is a sink for washing with a drain, but no running water. We will provide jugs of water for use. All bedding and kitchen amenities are supplied. There is a cooler for your perishable foods. This space is perfect for couples, friends, quiet gatherings, solo travellers and families with older children (not recommended for toddlers or young children due to wood stove and stairs/loft).

outhouse at Keystone Cabin

“Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity! I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumbnail. In the midst of this chopping sea of civilized life, such are the clouds and storms and quicksands and thousand-and-one items to be allowed for, that a man has to live.”
― Henry David Thoreau
