Fernie House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
Ski Fernie, fly fish the Elk River, hike or bike the many scenic mountain trails, while staying in town.
This large home is located in the annex directly across from the Elk River. After spending your day exploring the big outdoors walk a short distance to downtown or snuggle up in the living room by the cozy natural gas fireplace. Better yet, relax on the deck in your own private hot tub or in house sauna. Built with European craftsmanship, this lovely home is designed to accommodate a family or large group. The separate entrance and enclosed porch allows for easy on/off ski equipment and storage.
Ideally located on a corner lot across from the Annex Park, there are trails for cross country ski lovers and snow shoeing; and in the warmer months there is premier fly fishing and rafting at your door. Fernie also has a spectacular 18-hole golf course and country club. The aquatic centre is open for swimming and has its own hot tub and steam room.
Alpine skiers can either take the shuttle or drive 10 minutes to Fernie Alpine Resort where you will find the best trails in the East Kootenays. This house has been coined by the locals as 'The Lighthouse' since there is an enclosed widow's watch showing a breathtaking and panoramic view of the mountains and ski hill. Watch the sun rise and set as the mountains cast legendary shadows on their bald fronts, or observe the migratory paths of animals across the Lizard Range and Mount Fernie through the spotting scope.

Mike and I lived in the Maritimes most of our lives where we owned and operated a modern dairy farm in a small cove on the shores of the Northumberland Strait. It was there that we raised our four children. We would not change a moment of our time there.
Our daughter introduced us to Fernie when we came for a visit. We fell in love with the small community feeling and big outdoor living. There is no excuse not to get out and do something, whether it be skiing in the winter or biking, hiking and fishing in the summer.
Ski, skate, bike, hike, swim, tube, walk, stroll the town and have coffee at Freshie's. You will never run out of things to do in Fernie.
Have dinner at a table with a view every night, right in the house.
