Tom is such a great host! His place is awesome and the value is incredible. The people you meet at Tom’s place are great too. He took us in as friends and made our experience a great one. Perfect for those looking to connect with nature and have all the basics. Highly recommend his place.

El lugar está en pleno bosque, me ha encantado el silencio y la tranquilidad que se siente en ese lugar. Y la casa es hermosa, tiene un diseño particular y especial. Dormí muy bien y sin duda volvería. Tom respondió a todas mis preguntas y me gustó platicar con el por las mañanas. Uno nota que está sembrando mucho amor en ese lugar.

Thank you very much Tom for your hospitality. I enjoyed your stories about the local fare. Great fresh fruit and vegetables in season. Definitely recommended and would stay again. Colleen and Nadia

Tom is a very friendly and welcoming host who has excellent knowledge of the local and regional areas and resources for learning more about them, as well as some of the local history of the First Nations. The campground amenities are in good shape and the community building is a nice place to relax, cook and meet other people in. Lots of places to check out including swimming in the river that are within walking distance or a short drive.

The whole family absolutely loved our week long stay here. We really enjoyed the location which is near to the Slocan River and many hiking opportunities. I’m already looking forward to another visit in the future and highly recommend this magic spot to anyone whether to stay and relax or as a base to explore the surrounding area.

Thanks for the stay. The community building is a really cool place to hang out with other campers, cook, read or have a nice fire in the cooler season. It is really nicely built! I also enjoyed the open air shower :)

Tom’s place is a real gem. Great location and a lovely set up. The shower and flush toilet were much appreciated and the community building a great place to plan for local excursions. Hope to return end explore more of the area.

Valhalla Pines was the perfect place to stay for a relaxed camping experience in the middle of the West Kootenays. Was close to everywhere we wanted to explore and more. Tom is a super friendly guy and has transformed part of his property into a traveler’s paradise. Comes equipped with a communal kitchen with hot running water for dishes and outdoor shower (my fav) and a flushing toilet (luxurious!). Would definitely stay again and would highly recommend to anyone looking to experience the area :)

This is a great place to stay and for this reason I had extended my time here. Tom is the perfect host, easy going, friendly, and just an all round good dude. His house is an incredible example of an A-frame cabin and Tom is doing an impressive job creating his campground. I stayed in the campground on a tent site amongst tall old pines. Tom has a nice forested lot which lets in lots of light. The community building there is a beautiful timber frame building with cedar siding and is such a nice amenity when staying in a tent. You'll find cooking facilities, a fridge, wifi, outdoor flush toilet, plus a shower there. Nothing beats showering amongst the pines.

Tom's place was lovely. The location felt remote but was not hard to find, which was perfect for us. About 30 min drive to Nelson. Near the Slocan River which was really ideal for water activities like floating. Tom was very helpful giving guides and tips. We're hoping to be back in the future.

Amazing spot! loved everything about it. Lovely chilled environment, secluded but not too far from shops/cafes/gas etc. So much nature around. Loved the room. Soo comfy! Breakfast was awesome too. All healthy local ingredients. Even got to jam with Tom before we left. Great fun.

Valhalla Pines is a lovely get away. Tom is a great host and very knowledgeable of the area. There is no cell service (which was fine for me) but is something to consider. WIFI is available to allow you to check emails and keep others appraised of your whereabouts. Many of the amenities (shower, toilet) are outside which may be new to some but are nice convenience.

Off the main road but not hard to find and worth the side trip. Lovely bedroom and terrific breakfast. Enjoyed meeting Tom Suzanne and Vanessa and singing a few songs.

Great little camping spot in Slocan! Nice peaceful lot with an outdoor shower–there's something magical about looking up at the towering trees during a mundane activity like showering. Love the hammocks too!

For our quick get away it was an awesome place to rest our heads! Tom was very helpful at showing us things to do and places to eat. Overall it was a great experience!

Tom was super accommodating, and even gave us a little walking tour of the area the next morning and made us feel right at home. Cabin was clean and quaint. Be sure to get directions ahead of time, as there is no data, gps or cell coverage in the area. That being said, locals were familiar with the road and helped us find our way on our evening arrival.

What an great getaway! Wish I could’ve stayed longer. Beautiful secluded property and unique accommodations in Tom’s amazing A-frame house. I was only there for one night, but I would happily stay for more. Great central location if you want to explore the Kootenays. Tom is an excellent host and really wants to share his beautiful piece of property with as many guests as possible. He knows a lot about the area and can point out some great places to check out. I felt very welcomed and really enjoyed my time here. Tom is a great representative of the unique Kootenay lifestyle. It is a shared house, so you may be staying with other guests - however that can be a great chance to meet other travellers. I will certainly be back!

The tent camping spot is away from the house in a beautiful grove if trees with plenty of privacy you don't get in most spots these days. Tom is very kind and accommodating. The region is fantastically beautiful and Tom knows it well. Be sure to ask him tips on thing to see and do! ☺️

We spent a week at Valhalla Pines and had a very enjoyable stay. Tom, the host, really made our visit. Nestled in what some call the “Slow as You Can” (SLOCAN) Valley, Tom radiates the heart of Kootenay spirit: relaxed, caring, sharing, supportive, “green” and embracing of diversity. We were apprehensive about renting a room in a house, with shared kitchen, bathroom and living area but we were pleasantly surprised. Tom’s house is well suited for this. Our room was private and comfortable. The two bathrooms were clean, and everyone did their part at keeping the kitchen tidy. Tom offers fresh organic garden produce, with abundant fruit trees, and the house is set up to be as environmentally responsible as possible. Although the Valley offers wifi but no cell service, Tom arranged for a phone to make long distance calls over the internet. Tom was very flexible, interacting as much or as little as we were comfortable, and made every effort to be accommodating. He recommended recreational activities and was open to allowing us to use his land for activities that interested us. By the end of the week, I fear we kept him from his many projects as we got involved in conversations on the deck, swims in the river and jamming with his and our instruments. We are so happy to have met Tom and his partner, and would choose his place over a motel without hesitation.

Awesome place, super inviting and warm. Tom is a great guy to chat with and give advice about what to do around. Will definitely go back!
