Golfing at the 18 hole Revelstoke Golf course begins sometimes as early as April and always in May. Gaze at the mountains surrounding each of the fairways and keep your distance from the mighty Columbia River at the edge of number 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 fairways.
Revelstoke National Park is at your doorstep; a beautifully 26 km paved road to the summit will lead you to alpine meadows and blossoming flowers in the summer months. At the summit, visitors walk the 5 km of trails around the summit and are breath taken by the mountain views. More energetic hikers can take the 8 km trail to Eva Lake assuming no grizzly bears have been sited on the summit trails!

The owner moved to Revelstoke to complete the land assembly and processing for the expansion of the municipal ski hill to the great resort it has become, Revelstoke Mountain Resort. After selling the Resort potential to new owners, the owner kept the Revelstoke home for personal family vacations and is now for the first year sharing this spectacular location with those who would value this unique home.
Carol Powadiuk purchased this chalet in 1997
I chose to buy this home for a personal residence and have subsequently decided to provide it to vacation renters as of 2010.
Daily appreciation of the spectacular views from the living spaces of Revelstoke Retreat provides a unique opportunity to feel what it is like to live in the Rocky Mountains and at the same time enjoy the benefits of living close to the retail and services of downtown Revelstoke. An abundance of outdoor activities, downhill skiing, cross country skiing, swimming, going to the fitness centre, hiking, browsing in the shops and attending the many special events and entertainment provided in Revelstoke keep all family members involved in a healthy lifestyle.
We loved it here - the spacious living areas, the well equipped kitchen, the floor to ceiling windows for the view of the mountains and river. All this tucked in a quiet street minutes from downtown, the leisure centre and the walking paths. Would recommend to anyone anytime.
I travelled to Revelstoke with a group of men for a ski trip this winter and stayed at this property. It exceed our expectations in every way! Beautiful master bedroom, full size kitchen, and giant main room gave us more than enough space to enjoy ourselves and relax. The vaulted ceilings, open concept and fireplace made for a perfect place to spend the evenings and days off from skiing. The huge windows gave stunning views of the mountains and waterfront. The transaction and arrangements for the accommodation was easy; the owner and caretaker are lovely people and very helpful. This place made our trip!! I highly recommend it.
We were 8 friends travelling to Revelstoke for our first time. Our main goal for the trip was to ride snowboard and ski in great powder AND have a sosial life together.
This town, the mountain and the house fullfilled our expectation. The powder was awesome and gave us all the challenges we were looking for.
The house itself was beautiful with a location you can dream of. The view of the lake from the house and the garden, the nice furnished house with large rooms, well equiped kitchen, restrooms with big LCD-TV, Barbeque area outside, double carport and comfortable bedrooms made the stay easy, funny and social. AND since the house was suited in 3-5 minutes walk to the centre of the city it made it easy to use the fascilities like restaurants, cafeshops, shops, nightlife and 5-10 minutes drive to the mountain resort.... the trip became perfect and fullfilled our expectation.
Thank you to the owner of the house who helped us with travelling tips and recomendations of restaurants.
We highly recomend the area, the mountain, the city and of course the house.

This is a special kind of holiday rental. We were a 55+ couple & 3 young adults in Revelstoke for a week. The initial impact is the truly spacious great room with views to the river and mountains, but on closer inspection it is the personal touches and artwork that is surprising, giving a greater sense of 'home' than typical holiday rentals. The follow up from the owners to ensure all was OK was welcomed, especially with Revy having a very cold and snowy week. The powder at Revelstoke and Kicking Horse did lure us out, but this is a place you could just stay in.
The group agreed that our stay in this house was one of our holiday highlights.
The house itself is a beautiful, spacious home in a wonderful downtown location. The downside is very dangerous stairs without handlrails on one side. We were traveling with elementary age children. Upon arrival, we made stair rules for the children such as taking off socks, walking slowly etc. This did not prevent one of our kids from falling through the opening to the floor below. She was airlifted to Vancouver Children's Hospital and is still slowly recovering at home. To add to the disappointment, the owners would not reimburse us since we had to leave early. They showed no sympathy or remorse for our situation. They never wrote anything about the dangerous stairs in the advertisement for the home. Do not rent this home if you have young children or elderly parents.
We rent apartments/houses wherever we travel and this one looked special on the website. It ticked all the boxes; proximity to town and the mountain, everything in the house you could possibly need and a staggering amount of room. Plus the house has terrific character and history. To top it off there is an amazing view through the expanse of glass. It quickly became a favourite among the six of us because it felt like a house in which people had lived and enjoyed themselves. Rarely do you get the pleasure of this level of comfort. Bonus; a week of fresh snow every day.
