The Lodge at Fernie is a 3700 square foot custom built log chalet nestled in the Canadian Rockies at Fernie Alpine Resort.
The house is built of spruce logs in the Swedish style of log building. The 29 foot ceiling visible from the entry way highlights the complexity of the architecture. Massive log beams, hardwood floors, antique furnishings and cozy fireplaces combine with breathtaking views to create a rare combination of wilderness and comfort.
The lodge is within walking distance to ski lifts, bike trails, the Elk River and restaurants. The 80 foot deck accommodates an 8 person hot tub, a stainless steel gas BBQ, a 12 foot picnic table, plus patio tables. Steps from the deck lead to an outdoor fire pit surrounded by log benches and to a bridge crossing the small stream that meanders through the property. Moose and deer are occasionally seen from the back yard.

Our family, 8 adult children and 3 grandchildren absolutely fell in love with this Lodge. The antique furniture and décor made it feel so cozy. The open concept; large table/kitchen was perfect for our evenings of games/socializing and preparing of meals. The 8 minute walk to the hill was convenient and the hot tub was enjoyed by all of us after our day of skiing/boarding. I highly recommend this lodge (felt like a home away from home) - we plan to make this family ski/board weekend an annual event and will definitely be booking here for next year. Carol was great to deal with and even called upon our arrival to ensure everything was okay and to see if we had any questions.
We have done VRBO's for a number of years and seem to be able to feel what we are getting into after chatting with the owners, or communicating in some form or other.
After talking with Carol (owner), there was no question in regards to integrity. I felt totally comfortable in sending her a deposit and moving forward with confidence.
When we arrived the openness and the display of trust was beyond our experience. And, the bottle of red wine with the "have a wonderful time" note sealed our total belief of everything that we had come to know.
Anyone who wants a family gathering in a rustic environment with all the amenities of a 5Star environment, I would recommend wholeheartedly to try this little nugget in the BC Rockies.
Not only was the home second to none but the entire SKI hill with all of its activities really keep everyone busy and full of life!
We especially loved the hot tub, the games table, the dream kitchen, the fire pit and the construction of the LOG home. Not to mention the master bedroom with all of its antiques, comes right out of a Better Homes and Gardens Magazine.
Nonetheless, if you love the outdoors, and if you want to get away, book this high-end log home, situated in a quaint little hamlet in lower British Columbia.
We sure are grateful that owners like this are willing to share something of this quality with others. Enjoy!
Just returned from a gals fly fishing trip, and had the wonderful opportunity to stay at this lodge home. Very well equipped and stocked. With 6 women it was a perfect vacation to stay at this beautiful home. Nice to enjoy our friendship and share a great place to do so in. With 6 women, it was nice to have the comfort of 4 full bathrooms, and the main bedrooms were amazing. Nice touches through-out, and very much appreciated. The garage was wonderful to leave our vehicle in, when the guides picked us up. We will be back. Thank you.
A wonderful, well cared for, and relaxing family home with every convenience available. Our group included 3 parents and 9 young adults gathering from across the country to ski and enjoy some family time together. Lots of comfortable sleeping accommodation, and the large kitchen/dining area was the perfect setting for après ski. The owners were a delight to deal with, attentive to our pending arrival, and checked in with us while there. A great place on a great mountain. We'd return in a heartbeat!
We stayed in the Lodge this past week, 4 aging active skiers sharing the Lodge, each with our own bedroom and we had a totally wonderful time, despite -24° C. temperatures and worse windchill, making our ski time far more limited than planned. But the game room, the spacious kitchen, fully equipped to support a full restaurant crowd, the hot tub and comfortable furniture made our in-cabin vacation such a pleasure. Carol,the owner contacted us several times to insure our happiness and comfort--a first for me as a frequent VRBO'er. The photos, while beautiful, don't fully do justice to the beauty of the Lodge, with its unique log construction, the carefully chosen antiques, and the spaciousness. Given the cold, we chose to drive to the hill, but were able to easily ski back. Fernie is one of our favorite North American mountains, and this was our best lodging ever there. Fast wifi, heated garage--useful this week particularly. We were so pleased to be able to stay here.
The place was great, large enough for the whole family! The antiques were amazing, and the place was so cozy, hot tub was nice to be outside on the deck. Garage access for storage of boards/skis was great. Only downside was the walk to the hill, it was farther than we had expected, but still overall a great place!!!
Fernie Alpine Resort, in the Elk Valley at Fernie, British Columbia, is on the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountain Trench. The trench is a chain of individual valleys over 1000 miles long, leaving a scar so distinctive it is visible from outer space. Extending from Flathead Lake, MT to the Liard Plain near the Yukon border, the Trench marks the western boundary of the Rocky Mountains. Nine rivers, including the Fraser and Columbia drain the Trench, most entering and leaving through canyons.
Activities: ski, board, fish, hunt, golf, river raft, mountain bike, hike, ride horseback, birdwatch & nature tours............. The great outdoors!
