Dave and Elin welcome you to enjoy our large comfortable well appointed cedar log home with it's spectacular views of the East Kootney Rockies including the Ski Hill, Lizard Range, Mount Fernie and the Three Sisters.
Located on the sunny side of the valley within the city of Fernie, 10 km from the ski hill and 1.5 km from the historic downtown we back onto green space and frequently wake to deer and other wildlife in the backyard. Hiking, biking and running trails are accessible from the front door.
Designed with skiing and outdoor activities in mind you enter into the large foyer with adjacent equipment storage room, benches and coat hooks for all. The open kitchen creates a natural flow between the Great Room with its vaulted ceilings and cathedral windows and the large Dining Area.
There is one bedroom with queen bed and adjacent bathroom with shower on the main floor, the master bedroom with queen bed and 4 piece en suite is located on the second floor. The walkout basement level has two more bedrooms, one with two twin beds and the second nicknamed the bunkhouse with one queen bed and double/lower single/upper bunkbed. Also on the basement level is a 3 piece bath, a full laundry room with extra shower, the entertainment room and walkout to the 8 person hot tub.
Whether you come to relax or want to get in some serious backcountry adventures you will end the day with views that truly are some of the best Fernie has to offer and Fernie has some of the best of the best.

We first came to Fernie for the skiing, that was 30 years ago. In 1999 when the skihill was expanded a new subdivision was being developed on a sunny bench with spectacular views. Two years later 'the cabin' was completed. There is the main rental house as well as a smaller attached suit that we use personally.
We quickly discovered Fernie was so must more than a ski town. You can get off the hill on snowshoes or touring skis, cat skiing is a truly awesome experience, and the snowmobiling is world class. With spring, the first trails open for mountain biking in the much drier south country. By mid May, lower elevation trails are accessible although snow remains at higher elevations into late June. Summer opens up the back country for hiking and mountain biking whether on single track or logging roads. There is fly fishing, golfing, white water rafting and floating the Elk River, or one can go down to Lake Koocanusa for some swimming or boating. In the fall the days get cooler and the skies more blue. The forest are brillant as the Larches and Aspens turn golden. By November the skies are getting grey and the mountains are turning white. Out come the ski magazines as the cycle starts again.
We came for the sking and stayed for the year round mountain setting and activities.
We are situated such that the sun rises in the Coal Creek valley and sets in the Lizard Creek valley. We get more sun than almost anywhere in the valley. Trails for hiking and biking are accessible from the front door.
