STONE GATEHOUSE IN MT. ROBSON PARK NEAR JASPER NAT. PARK, AB

Jasper House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4, strictly enforced)

The Goat's Head Gatehouse is a quaint, stone chalet designed in the image of National Park Gatehouses and is surrounded by the wilderness of Mt. Robson Park. The unique two story structure offers a sun room with floor to ceiling windows and a massive natural stone wood burning fireplace.

French doors open to a flagstone patio from which to enjoy a morning coffee or, for an evening barbeque to grill that perfect fresh caught trout. The patio overlooks a lovely flower garden with hummingbirds and butterflies and in the background, the glacial peaks of Mt. Robson, the highest mountain in the Canadian Rockies.

The post and beam structure of the Gatehouse was made from pine-beetle killed trees that were cut on the property. Stones for the exterior and interior were gathered locally from quarries and cliffsides but one stone from each of the mountain national parks of western North America were also embedded within the walls.

The wood furnishings and woodwork in the gatehouse were made locally by artisans using reclaimed and recycled wood.

The kitchen contains all the amenities needed to make complete meals and make your stay comfortable. It will be equipped with many staples and pantry items so you need not purchase bulky products to carry around e.g. coffee, tea, condiments, spices, oils, vinegars, etc.

There are two baths, one with a free standing large tub in a cedar plank spa-like bathroom---a perfect way to relax and refresh after a day of sight-seeing or hiking. A walk-in shower with stone walls for that ‘au natural’ feeling is on the main level.

The two bedrooms in the loft each contain a queen, custom-made platform bed---both bedrooms overlook the sun room from a balcony. Each bedroom opens to the upstairs bathroom.

Take a gentle hike right from the front door into pristine meadows (a short trail has been mapped out for you) or walk around the twelve acre private property to find the best view of Mt. Robson and Swift Current Creek. A natural waterfall on Swift Current Creek is 300 meters from your door. Sometimes the view is so stunning it's difficult to know which direction to point your camera!

There are many walks and hikes within 5 km of the Gatehouse. Rearguard Falls is the furthest point of travel for Pacific Salmon and they can be seen in late summer by driving a few km and taking a short walk to the waterfall. Overlander Falls and Hargreaves Canyon are scenic short hikes that are also staging areas for raft tours and high level kayaking. The Trail head for the Swift Current Creek trail starts within walking distance of the Gatehouse and leads up the Revelation Valley (Swift Current Creek) to the headwall of the 91st highest waterfall in the world (currently inaccessible except for real adventurers). The world famous Berg Lake Trail and the start of the 110 km long north boundary trail are also within 5 km.

There are restaurants and shops in the nearby towns of Valemount and Jasper---a 55 minute drive---that offer additional amenities, recreational activities and, world renowned mountain vistas.

We are anxious to offer our gatehouse to guests to enjoy the spectacular mountain vistas and diversity and abundance of wildlife in Mt. Robson Park. The Park sets an example of how wildlife works best i.e., left alone---allowing nature to take its course---little doubt that wildlife thrive in the Park. Ask to see our vast array of wildlife photos caught on our trail cameras: grizzly and black bears, cougars, lynx, wolves, coyotes, deer, elk, moose and the illusive wolverine along with a myriad of small mammals. Also of interest are the many birds and wildflowers that abound in this microclimate, one of the few inland rainforest areas in North America.

Carmen Ottaway purchased this house in 1978

The owners are long time residents of the area. The property borders Swift Current Creek and offers a spectacular view of Mt. Robson---people say our view is unique in Canada.

Perhaps the most exciting part of living here is the wildlife---almost daily a black bear or a deer munching on new shrub growth can be seen in front of the sun room windows. The view is spectacular. The sound of Swift Current Creek is relaxing. The spring water (Norlander Springs) is the freshest and cleanest anywhere---makes for a great cup of coffee and, the air is always filled with the freshness of vegetation.

I am so happy we came across such amazing property it was warm and welcoming when we arrived. The view outside the property as well as the trails are fantastic, the owner left snow shoes for us to use we never had and we did try it was fun. We definitely will be back at this property and will be staying much longer. Thank you for such amazing experience

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
We chose this lovely place for a short getaway after our wedding. We were not disappointed! From the moment we walked in we felt completely at home, with a bottle of wine and fresh flowers on the table. We spent a bit of time exploring the area and snowshoeing into a few different areas, and nothing was as satisfying as returning to the Gatehouse to warm up and relax. It is simply beautiful, amazing area, extremely clean, I would highly recommend it to anyone considering it! We will be back!

Owner's Response: We were a little worried for our guests when it wouldn't stop snowing this year but we knew the comfort and warmth of the Gatehouse would not disappoint. Besides, winter in the mountains is just as beautiful, just different.

Great getaway!

The pictures on the website do not do this vacation spot any justice!
We walked into the cabin to a nice bottle of wine and bouquet of flowers on the table...what more can I say! All the little touches made our stay at the cabin so memorable.
The cabin was so quaint and well equipped. Anything you can imagine needing was supplied in the Kitchen. There was always fresh firewood on hand, as we had a fire on non-stop.
The surroundings were so beautiful, and we even ventured out on a hike/trail around the cabin that took us about 45 minutes...what a great day.
It was the perfect vacation spot away from home!
I would recommend to anyone.

Owner's Response: We try to make each visit to the Gatehouse and the amenities we offer our guests, regardless of the season, reflect and compliment the extraordinary beauty of Mt. Robson Park.

Enjoyed the Quiet

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful, relatively new, very clean vacation home close to the Trans-Canada hi-way in a fairly remote part of BC. Photos are accurate preview of very cool architecture, amenities, lush garden and mountain vernacular. This is a rare VRBO. Wood burning fireplace and plenty of firewood at your door. No cell service (a good thing for us) but complete with Wi-Fi and satellite TV. Great place for a couple or family looking to drop out of the rat race for a bit, do some cooking, and simply rest between a few hikes or drives. Beautiful one hour drive west of Jasper. Close to rafting if you go in the summer. Would love to have stayed forever.
