The west gable with its large window onto the ski hill and the Dogtooth Mountain range becomes the centre of attention in the late afternoon.

This chalet is more than a chalet. It is a very comfortable home with all the amenities that vacationers would dream of. We had a fantastic vacation with our kids and grand son even if the ski was not at its best (weather conditions unpredictable). Everyone had its own tranquility spot while enjoying the dining area, the hottub and fireplace. Facilities for ski in / out are great.
We highly recommand this location.
We stayed at Dogtooth Vista for three nights in February 2015, and it was a fantastic experience. The house is absolutely beautiful and very large. Our group of 10 adults was extremely pleased that many of the beds could be split in two, giving all of us our own beds to sleep in. The kitchen is extremely spacious, and fully equipped with modern appliances great for cooking gourmet meals. There was plenty of seating for all 10 people at meal time too. There was ample seating in the living room as well by the central fireplace. The large hot tub and sauna were an awesome feature that we got great use out of after some hard days of skiing. It's a quick drive to the ski area parking lot, but a lot of our party walked to the hill in about 10 minutes. On the way back, you can pretty nearly ski directly to the back door! And for cross country skiing, the trails begin literally directly behind the house. All in all, an excellent experience! I would stay here again in an instant.
We stayed at this house for 3 days in March 2014. Two families, 8 people in total. We travel a lot, and most of the time we rent cottages/chalets for our stay. I believe this was the best house we ever rented, very spacious, clean, modern, equipped with everything we needed.
Although it is possible to get from the house to the ski lifts on skis, which requires some skating and crossing some roads, we chose to drive to the resort parking lot (~2 mins max). Every day after skiing at Kicking Horse we would put on the XC skis and spend some time on the XC trails which basically start next to the house.
The rental process was straightforward, very friendly owner, overall an excellent experience. We would definitely try to stay at this same place for our next visit to Kicking Horse.
Our family had a really wonderful Christmas at this beautiful house and it certainly exceeded all our expectations. The house is stylishly furnished and thoughtfully equipped and we were even provided with a Christmas tree! The views from the panoramic windows and hot tub are stunning. The skiing was a bit limited, but for cold, short winter days was just absolutely fine.
We would certainly love to return another year.
2 families from Spain/Mexico and Brazil traveling around the Rockies and BC. The house is amazing, great views, nice design and great service from the owner. Wifi was not working when we arrived late at night and at 9 am they were already fixing it.
Love it !
We stayed here for 7 days and the home was everything we could have asked for and more. After long days skiing Kicking Horse the Hot Tub was AWESOME! The kitchen is beautiful and we cooked almost all our meals here. We were a party of five adults and two teenages and two kids and we had ample sleeping room and great sit down dinners together. The owners are very easy to communicate with and have a beautiful, clean property that we would recommend to anyone!
