FULL DESCRIPTION: -

Equidistant from Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and the Nordic Ski Centre this custom-built full timber-frame home is perfectly located for you and your group to enjoy all that the mountain has to offer. There is plenty to do year round for the outdoor enthusiast, or, if you just want a relaxing week to unwind with the family take advantage of the modern luxuries located throughout the home. The house has been professionally landscaped and the fittings and furnishings are top notch.

Ski in/Walk out access. In the winter months a very short walk up the street and you can strap on your skis/board and ride down to the gondola in minutes. Easily done, even with kids. For ski in, approach the runs located near the pioneer chair and ski in via the 'Westside' run. For avid cross country skiers the house is one of the closest to the Nordic Ski Centre.

All three bedrooms have split kings (king beds that can be converted into twin beds). For additional sleeping needs, there is a pull out couch in the master bedroom along with a day bed. Plus a double futon in the nook near the master bedroom. The media room also has a pull out couch. In total, we can accommodate 12 people, with 10 having their own beds. A crib/pack n play is available with a fitted sheet should you need it.

On the top floor the oversize master suite enjoys a sitting area, gas fireplace, large flat screen TV, Blu-ray player, cable TV, Apple TV and next to the sofa bed there is a sound dock for your iPod. The granite detailed en-suite spa bath is accessed via the walk through closet. A small balcony and a large picture window complete this private and luxurious top floor retreat.

The main floor enjoys soaring ceilings, has a spacious fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. A large square dining table easily seats eight people, with another three people seated at the breakfast bar. The living room has amazing views, cozy couches and a large wood-burning fireplace. Just off the living room there is a wrap around deck with an undercover BBQ hooked up to a permanent gas line so you never have to worry about refilling a heavy tank. A sound system with CD player and iPod dock allow you to enjoy your own music by the fireplace. Relax with a glass of wine, your favorite book, and enjoy the 270-degree views. In the summer months open the windows and enjoy the mountain air.

Located just off the main floor through the kitchen there is a mudroom to put your wet clothes, along with a full washer/dryer combo and a half bathroom. This room has heated flooring and drying hooks allowing your clothes and gear to dry quickly. The garage also has heated flooring and racks to put your skis/boards.

On the lower floor there is ample space in the media room with a gas fireplace and a wet bar area. The two other bedrooms can sleep four in split kings. There is also a queen sofa bed and a full surround sound system with a large wall mounted flat screen TV. A Blu-ray player, Apple TV, PlayStation 3, Netflix, WIFI (accessible throughout the home) and an iPod dock are also included. A large second full bathroom with double sinks, separate shower, bath tub, granite counter tops and heated tile floors make for a spacious and comfortable area to unwind after your day on the hill.

Don't forget about the hot tub, which is accessible through the double doors in the media room downstairs.

This luxury mountainside home is perfect for all seasons and leaves you wanting for nothing.

About Jonathan Nesbitt

I went to Golden and Kicking Horse Resort back in 2006 on what was supposed to be a one off trip. I was so taken with the place that I started building my house in late 2007!

Having extensively traveled the world I still find myself yearning to get back to my 'home away from

home'.

This truly is a Mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. From skiing and snowmobiling in the winter months to biking, golfing and hiking in the summer, there is something for everyone and you don't have to put up with the crowds of some other year round ski resorts.

I have taken immense pleasure in building what I consider to be one of the most unique and enjoyable homes on the mountain.

It is my wish that you enjoy Kicking Horse and the surrounding area as much as I do. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me via the 'email owner' tab above.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Jonathan Nesbitt purchased this house in 2007

Why Jonathan Nesbitt chose Golden

The resort boasts some of the best skiing, some of the best biking and hiking and plenty of other adventure activities too numerous to list here. Unlike other over crowded ski resorts Kicking Horse allows you to enjoy and explore the area without feeling like you're in a tourist trap.

What makes this house unique

The house is perfectly located for ease of access to the resort and the Nordic Ski Centre. The views of the Selkirk Mountains from the living room and master bedroom are simply breathtaking. Throughout the home no expense has been spared on modern amenities.

A perfect retreat for couples, families, and groups of friends. It's everything you could want in a home and more.

Excellent house in winter/summer resort

  • 4 of 5
The house sits in cluster of houses a short walk from the Kicking Horse resort, 13km from the town of Golden. It is very spacious, and furnished and equipped to a luxurious standard throughout. It is accessed via an integral garage that leads onto a large entrance area (off which are washing and drying facilities). The upstairs is a large main bedroom suite with cot facilities. The ground floor is a split level area comprising a large kitchen/dining room with breakfast bar, with a few steps down to a living room with log fire. Downstairs are two double bedrooms adjacent to a very well-equipped media room, and outside a hot tub. From the terrace, which has a BBQ, are views over to the mountains on the other side of the valley. We have suggested to Jon that he may want to provide outdoor furniture for this terrace.

Jon was extremely helpful and attentive both in the run up to our arrival and in helping us while we were there.

We very much enjoyed our stay there.

Incredible vacation property! Best home with best nightly rate!

  • 5 of 5
A group of us rented this property for the May long weekend and it was a very wise decision! The pictures do not do it justice. Very high ceilings and incredible craftsmanship throughout the home. Slept 10 people comfortably. The attention to detail was fantastic with the whole house absolutely spotless upon arrival. If your looking to rent a property at Kicking Horse Resort look no further! Perfect trip, thanks Jon!
