About Ralph Taylor

We love having guests from France, to Japan to New York who have enjoyed visiting our mountain top retreat and guess house. There are four of us who have been friends for decades, together we take care of MountainView so you can have a wonderful experience here.

Ralph Taylor purchased this chateau / country house in 2006

Why Ralph Taylor chose Chilliwack

Chilliwack is the Summer recreation capital of B.C. Our guests refer to it as Whistler East since the house is above the snow line and the view is every bit as amazing as Whistler.

We have an activity room with pool table, goose ball, shuffle board, flat screen and video games.The outdoor area includes a fire pit, pool and hot tub and large decks with amazing, panoramic mountain views just 20 minutes form world class fishing in Vedder River, Cultus Lake watersides, Chilliwack River, shopping, movie theatres and great dining.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Amazing, panoramic mountain views.

Serenity. Clean, fresh mountain air.

Reconnecting with nature.

Swimming pool

Hot tub,

Fire pit

19 acres of great walks and hiking in rain forests.

Large decks

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented Mountainview for a family reunion and couldn't have been happier! With 12 adults and 2 children, this six bedroom home never once left us feeling like we were on top of each other, and considering we were there for a week, our comfort was priority. The kitchen and dining room more than met our needs, we never once ran into water issues (being that we were on a well).



The pool and hot tub were well maintained and used very often; the outdoor seating was more than we expected and considering the weather was so great, we took advantage of the deck, propane fireplace, fire pit and the views...the views which can be compared to nothing else!



Our stay at the Mountain View Country House last August was wonderful. Much thought went into the preparations. We had everything from an amazing mountainous view that changed by the minute with the passing light of the sun The air was fresh and wildlife were seen everyday.



For such a large space, it was warm and inviting and made our stay as a very large family, a trip to remember! We would definitely rent again! And though it is tucked up a mountain, it was surprisingly easy to get to and close enough to shopping and tourist venues...absolutely loved it!

A true mountain view!

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of 17 (and for a couple of days 19) who spent 6 days celebrating grandma's 70th birthday with a family reunion. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this spacious, beautiful house. Some reno's still in final stages of completion, but the house has a pool table, lots of movies, an amazing hot tub, huge kitchen which was very well supplied, internet access, decks overlooking the valley with absolutely stunning mountain views, and room enough for 17 people to stay very comfortably. No cell phone reception, but perhaps that was the biggest benefit of this house! The owners Sandra and Andre were absolutely amazing to deal with. We had some appliance issues and Andre went above and beyond to get it fixed very quickly. The house was spotlessly clean and most linen seemed brand new. Could have used more double beds instead of doubling two twin beds (which did not work well to create a queen).

Wish we had a few more days to enjoy this retreat, but I guess we will just have to go back in the summer!

Thank you for providing us with beautiful memories!

Great View, Great Pool, Rental House

  • 3 of 5

We spent one week at this property in August,2014. We were 3 families. The view is great, the pool and hot tub are great, the house is in need of a lot of repairs. The property has been rented out a lot and there are many broken or patched pieces in most rooms. There is one double bed upstairs and one downstairs (this is different than what is on the web site). If you are okay with rustic this is the place for you.

Owner's Response: This was our busiest June to August in 3 years and we were booked almost every single day.Yes, by the end of the season the house was tired and in need of some TLC. We have repaired everything that need repairing, gutted 2 bathrooms and are making them brand new, all new stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, new tiles on floor, new paint in some areas of house, new games/meeting room, new comforters and better mattresses. All beds will be singles convertible to king beds when requested ( like on cruise ships). We have taken a few weeks off from bookings so contractors can get it all done by November 26th. New pics and video tour will be posted then.

Annual Girls Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay, perfect place for our annual girls weekend. The weather was great and we all attended the Ryder Lake Ramble. The house was clean and worked very well for our crowd. We plan on returning again next year which would be our 3rd time. Good location as our group comes from many different directions. Information and instructions provided were clear.

It would have been great if the outdoor fire pit was working and darned if we could find a bottle opener. Minor details, it was a very good weekend.

Thank you. Grad Class 1970

Amazing Time with Friends!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and myself (14 in total) had an amazing time at this house. It is in a beautiful location with an absolutely stunning view! The house itself is gorgeous and met all of our needs easily.

Sitting in the hot tub or on the amazing deck looking into the valley you can just feel everything slipping away into relaxation.

I would definitely recommend this house for anyone looking to get away! The location, price and amenities are top notch!

Misinformed

  • 2 of 5

We booked for a family reunion. We had 14 adults and 2 small children. The hot tub and pool were not open though had been advertised. It was a steaming hot weekend. The main shower had a hole in the ceiling where the fan should have been and the shower knob fell off. The garage was unavailable. We brought an RV, that nearly tipped over trying to come in the driveway. We needed the RV for the sleeping accommodation as there were not enough beds. The patio table with the propane fire did not have a hose from the tank to the fire. This property is serious need of upgrading. We had a wonderful time because our family was together in one place not because the place was amazing. It did not come anywhere close to expectations

Owner's Response: Sandra and Marc View contact Content from Learn more|Turn off Hello Shelly, I am genuinely sorry that you had an unpleasant experience. We make every effort to do our best for guests like you. There were guests before and after you who had no problem with the hot tub. We are on a well and the iron in the water can make the water look brownish sometimes.We use organic treatments to minimize the impact on your skin.No one has called it "filthy" before. We are very generous with firewood and have had some guests use up 6 months worth in one weekend.We then took to securing the wood. We left out several bundles for your use. There was not one outdoor pool open in Chilliwack in early May. We wrongfully assumed that was understood. We are also in the mountains and had heavy snow in late April.We have since added clarification on the site.Thank you for that feedback. Shelly I get your frustration, and again, I regret that it affected your holiday.However, your email stating ' there'll be more (bad reviews) and we will let others know" is a suggestion that you wish and plan to slander Mountain View. Had you approached us with your concerns we would have compensated you with a free weekend when the pool is open so you could see us at our best. If that was not acceptable, we would have found another way to please you. We love making our guests happy both in our own home and at Mountain View.

One amazing perk to this mountaintop property is that it is about a 3 minute drive to the trailhead for Elk-Thurston Trail! This trail features panoramic views of the Fraser Valley and Chilliwack River Valley. It is very convenient to access this trail from the property.

A short drive (15-20 minutes) takes you to either the Chilliwack-Vedder River or the Fraser River. The Chilliwack River is known for its salmon and steelhead fishing as well as rafting & kayaking. The Chilliwack River Valley is a well-known hiking area, featuring numerous hiking trails. The Fraser River features amazing salmon and sturgeon fishing.

Circle-farm tours, corn maze, and a haunted house are other features of the Chilliwack area.

Cultus Lake is roughly a 20-25 minute drive from the property and is known for boating and as a family recreational area.

Chilliwack Lake and Foley Lake are also accessible although they are a further drive.

Harrison Hot Springs is roughly a 25-35 minute drive from the property.

Othello Tunnels, Hell's Gate, and Skagit Valley regional park are attractions that are a bit further.

Cultus Lake Waterslides and Bridal Falls waterslides are great for family fun in the summer.

Other activities/features include: archery, cross country skiing, and snow shoeing.

Prepare yourself for organic fruits and vegetables to be grown on the property in the spring.
