Overview

Fernie House Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10 in proper beds))

Spacious yet cosy and comfortable, Snow Lake House is only a six minute warm-up walk from the ski base area (with a ski locker at the Day Lodge). Over 3600 square feet of flexible accommodation with great amenities including an eight person hot tub, 8' pool table, TV room and large dining area. (Floor-plans are available by email).

All 10 guests can be accommodated in proper beds in the 5 bedrooms (i.e. not in bunk-beds, and not on sofa-beds or sofas).

After a long day on the slopes there is nothing better than to climb into the hot-tub and take in the spectacular views of Lizard and Currie Bowls.

Alternatively head downstairs and have a game of pool, or watch your favourite Blu-ray or dvd movies on the 46 inch TV. Or perhaps you would prefer to just play your iTunes music by streaming it wirelessly from your device into the stereo and enjoy the company of friends and family in the spacious living areas.

There are five bedrooms arranged as follows:

Bedroom 1 - upstairs, comprising queen bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, fitted wardrobe, views of ski hill.

Bedroom 2 - upstairs, comprising queen bed, ensuite bathroom with bath and separate shower, fitted wardrobe, views of ski hill.

Bedroom 3 - upstairs, comprising queen bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, fitted wardrobe, balcony with views across valley.

Bedroom 4 - downstairs, comprising double bed with a single above (so either a couple or two singles), sharing a separate bathroom with bedroom 5;

Bedroom 5 - two single beds.

Payment accepted in Canadian Dollars, US Dollars, or British Pounds - ask for revised quotes.

Sorry, but no pets allowed and no smoking. We do not rent to vacationing students or groups of singles under the age of 27. The bedrooms are arranged to suit couples or families or mixed groups of couples and singles, and so the house is not suited to large groups of singles. Hence no bachelor / stag / bachelorette / stagette / hen parties.

About Mike

Anna & Mike spent a long time looking for their ideal mountain retreat, and immediately felt at home in Snow Lake House. Zoom-in on the map to see how close the house is to the ski base!

Mike purchased this house in 2009

Why Mike chose Fernie

We wanted a house on a great ski hill but we also wanted a real community town to go with it. It also needed to be within three hours drive of Calgary for friends and family. We found that Fernie ticked all the boxes for us in 2009, and we love it even more today.

What makes this house unique

It is only a short warm-up walk to the ski base area, about 6 minutes (i.e. closer than some of the car-parks - zoom-in on the map to compare).

We also have a ski locker at the Day Lodge for storing skis, so you do not need to carry them and can carry your ski boots and store your shoes.

The views are even more spectacular in the summer, as the garden leads down to the lake with the mountains dominating the skyline above.

Fantastic Ski and Adventure Base

  • 5 of 5

A half dozen of my friends and I get together every year for a week of skiing. We change resorts almost every year and this year, we decided on Fernie. We often get condo style accommodations but Snow Lake House (SLH) looked like a perfect fit to have us all in one place. Easy walk (or drive, if you want) to the hill, hot tub, 5 bedrooms...

Mike and Anna have just completed a great reno that adds a beautiful stone and cedar facade and balcony to the front of the house along with a great entrance hallway. The front of the home is visually miles ahead of what appears on the VRBO pictures (as of Feb 2015). All three upstairs bathrooms have obviously been recently upgraded. Beautiful job.

The hot tub, kitchen and dining room and two bedrooms look out over Snow Lake (not really a "lake", but bigger than a pond) toward the ski hill. With not-so-great ski conditions this year, it wasn't always the view we wanted to see, but I can imagine that waking up on on a pow day and looking at fresh snow on the trees would be inspiring. Probably pretty nice in the summer, too!

The living areas of the house are great. Very large and utile kitchen, big dining room (sat 14 when we had guests for dinner), and a comfortable living room with fire place on the main level and furnished rec room in the basement with its own TV and a pool table. No keys to lose... Mike had coded locks for all the doors and changed them (and the ski locker combination) to match my cell phone, so we were comfortable that nobody else had the numbers... not that it really mattered; I don't think there is a high crime rate here. The ski locker on the hill was great and held, realistically, 3 pairs of skis... 4 if you packed it carefully. With a rental pair and someone in for a tune every night, we didn't have to carry skis back and forth, but it wouldn't have been a problem anyway due to proximity.

The hot tub was freshly changed for our arrival. Mike had a service come in every couple of days to make sure it stayed that way. It was used every day.

Snow Lake House is obviously a well loved and maintained home. I would recommend it to families and guys and/or girls getaway groups anytime. Everyone in my group thought it was an excellent choice! When we get back to Fernie, Snow Lake House will be our first choice.

Great Family Ski Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect family experience the Snow Lake House provides. The living space is abundant, the amenities excellent, and the house is well equipped for a large family. We are a family with a total of 10 adults and 3 children and we also arrived in 5 cars. There is room for everyone and everything. The proximity to the lifts was the greatest asset. No checking the snow report at Snow Lake House; you need only look outside at the lifts and the runs. The crowning glory to our week was watching New Year's fireworks from what seemed like a front row seat. We would very much like to be back in future years. Thanks Mike and Anna for your hospitality!

Wonderful Winter Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this holiday last Xmas and were very excited to all be together in such an idyllic location. We were 9 adults and 5 children under 3. House was exactly what we hoped and even better since the upstairs bedrooms had been renovated to include ensuites in all three rooms. House had everything one would need including all necessary supplies for bathrooms, kitchen and laundry. Location was excellent, virtually at the base of Fernie Alpine Resort. Hot tub too! Mike and Anna were very helpful in answering questions whenever we emailed. Thanks for a memorable holiday from one big happy family!
