Overview

British Columbia Mountains Chalet Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms+, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 11 - 14

This beautiful log chalet is located just a few minutes walk to the ski lifts of Fernie Alpine Resort with ski to the door convenience. Log beds, pine floor, and woodburning fireplace add to the charm of our Black Bear Chalet. In fact, we adopted a stuffed black bear from Fernie Mountain while we were building our home and he is still present as the keeper of our chalet.

Our chalet is ideal for large families or groups who love to cook and socialize around our large kitchen table, built by one of the owners. Large decks off the kitchen and great room, a,propane barbecue, and a commercial hot tub aid to the enjoyment of the secluded property. A fire pit overlooks the lake at the back of the property, giving you a back to nature feel. It truly is a little piece of Canadian paradise!

The property also has a basement suite, occupied by long term tenants. The basement suite has a completely separate entrance to ensure privacy for our chalet guests. The basement tenants can be used as a resource for local dining and activity recommendations.

Airport and Transit Details: Cranbrook International Airport is within a 45 minute(s) drive.

Bus Transit can be reached by driving for 10 minute(s).

Shopping and Dining: Can be reached by walking for 5 minute(s). Several restaurants are located in walking distance on the hill. There is also a small grocery & liquor store, as well as a a couple of gift shops.

Nearby Attractions: Tennis courts, horse back riding, mountain biking, chair lift rides are located 5 minutes away.

Why Lana Radchenko chose British Columbia Mountains

As avid skiiers, we first fell in love with Fernie because of the DEEP powder snow in the winter season. Later, we learned Fernie is a great place to be all year around - skiing, snowboarding, ski-doing, hiking, biking, fishing, rafting, and of course, golf!

Guestbook comments from the owner

For 10years plus the Edwards family has been going on an annual ski trip. This was our first trip to Fernie. We've all enjoyed our stay at the chalet - especially the space and the close proximity to the hill!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our week long stay in Black Bear Chalet was great. The location was perfect with great snow on the mountain and an easy drive into Fernie. There was a very pleasant ambience about the chalet, with the log structure, the fire place and the hot tub. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances and cooking implements and the BBQ was very handy. Our four grown children met us there and we each took a turn cooking the evening meal. It was a fun way to share our time together. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Property is as described, great location, short walk to the lifts. Cabin had everything we needed and was up to par in every way. Reservation, payment and service during our stay was excellent. Will stay again. I didn't realize there is a basement suite with residence before booking, found out on arrival, they are discretely located and had no effect on our weekend. Thanks Lana.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Great house - large kitchen and dining table to hang out at after a day of skiing. Lots of room for a large group of people. Would definitely rent again.
