Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Melanie,



We had a great long weekend up at your beautiful cabin! Thank you sooo much for having us, as the time was well enjoyed. Two of my party were fortunate enough to see a momma black bear with her cubs.

.......your cabin was more than we could have imagined and we all thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend!



Thank you,

Alyssa

Great Ski Trip!

  • 5 of 5
We had a blast at the ski hill, great conditions and a lot of great terrain on the mountain.

The chalet was fantastic, great kitchen with anything you could need. Very comfortable stay with more than enough space and sleeping space for a large group of people. Relaxing in the hot tub after a day skiing was wonderful, and I would recommend this place to anyone looking to go to kicking horse.

Another great Kicking Horse trip.

  • 4 of 5
The conditions at the ski hill were terrific and the ski in ski out location of this home was very convenient. The home was very clean and the kitchen was fully stocked, including fancy mustards. We enjoyed the master bedroom, very spacious with room to spread out. Always using the hot tub, we didn't have an opportunity to use the big soaker tub. The downstairs bedroom was almost like a suite in itself, secluded from the rest of the bedrooms.

Beautiful and outstanding accommodation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for two weeks and the chalet was incredible. In fact, I found it hard to get one of my guests to leave. Great kitchen. Large sitting room. Comfy beds. Huge hot tub. Ample parking. It was easy to cater for our eight guests. We could ski to within 20 meters of the house (or to the house when it snowed). It was also a very easy stroll to lift (largely on skis down a slight incline). The house came with all the amenities one needed. This included a dishwasher, washer machine and dryer.

If you are unsure as to whether to book this chalet, I suggest you just book it.

Best house we ever rented for a ski trip

  • 5 of 5
Our group of seven friends who have been skiing together for 45 years converged on this home for a few days of Kicking Horse fun. The house was unbelievable - better than the pictures.
We like to cook big meals at the end of the day and the kitchen had everything and more to make great meals. How many places can you rent that even have a meat thermometer??
With seven guys who aren't going to share beds, we each had our own bed and there was plenty of room to spread out. The leather furniture and set up were made for friends to hang out together and completely enjoy an evening after wonderful days of skiing.
In forty five years of renting ski homes in all parts of the world this place was the best ever!

Amazing Retreat

  • 5 of 5
11 of my friends and I packed up and left Calgary for this quaint retreat. Half of us went skiing and the other half did not. Both parties of people enjoyed themselves equally and we created a lot of memories in and out of the cabin. We were also surprised by how large this place was and it was perfectly cleaned for us before our arrival and everything was as they said it would be. We will definitely be returning to this spot. Make sure you read through the guestbook! Thank you Melanie and Gary for a well needed getaway.

Cheers,
Adam, KB, Rose, Gregory, Brandon, Cara, Dylan, Amanda, Edan, Allan, Daryl, and Justin.
