SKI FERNIE FLYFISH ON THE ELK RIVER

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.

Nan purchased this house in 2005

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.

GREAT PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property over the May long weekend and had a wonderful time. The pictures don't do justice to this property that is beautifully located right by the river and has wonderful mountain views. Loved the cleanliness and how well stocked everything was. We were 6 adults, one toddler and a baby and the property was big enough to accommodate all of us comfortably.

GREAT SKI CHALET!

  • 5 of 5
There's an old time charm to Fernie that isn't found in a lot of resorts anymore, this place compliments that charm perfectly. The house is spacious, in great shape and had all the amenities one would hope for after a day on the hill like a sauna and hot tub. The house is sectioned off nicely as well making it great for time with friends and family, but big enough to hide. The kitchen was very well appointed with everything you'd need to cook a feast!

FERNIE LIGHTHOUSE RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (6) just spent three nights at the lighthouse over the past weekend and it was a very nice stay. We enjoyed the home and amenities very much as well as our time in Fernie. I would have no problem referring or using the lighthouse again in the future.

FAMILY CHRISTMAS

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing family Christmas here. The owners had decorated the house for our arrival which made it very welcoming. The house itself was very clean, comfortably large and exceptionally well equipped especially the kitchen which made cooking a Christmas dinner for eight people no problem. We took our labrador with us and as the house is next to the river and park which also has a dog area we could easily take her out for walks. The owners promptly answered all our queries and made sure we had everything we needed while we were there. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone staying in the Fernie area.
