Overview

Fairmont Hot Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Unique, spacious, comfortable house directly on the 16th green on the Riverside Golf Course, with large wrap around deck(900 sq feet) on the second level. Featuring an 8-10 seat outside Hot Tub. Imagine yourself soaking languorously in the hot tub after a hard days skiing or a long days golf watching the moon set over, or watching the spectacular views and sunsets over Purcell mountains and Columbia River.

For those large family gatherings we have a very spacious kitchen with granite counter top island, with solid oak floors & every modern convenience & settings for 12 people + gadgets for the gourmet cook. Seating at dinner table for 10.

Kitchen leads directly out on to the deck just by the BBQ, with large patio table & seating for those idyllic sunny evenings and starry nights.

The kitchen is the hub of the area but leads naturally into the living room and also the pool room with oriental carpets and piano.

Spacious 800 sq' living room with log fireplace & oak 4.5' x 9' pool table, piano & library and plenty of board games for family enjoyment.

WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS!! to keep up with those emails!

32' flat screen TV, & DVD in living room, 1 other TV & one other DVD in bedrooms for everyone's enjoyment.

3 Fantastic Golf courses within 1/4 of mile of the house! Riverside, Mountainside & Creekside. Near to 7 other 18 hole golf courses, plus Windermere and Columbia lakes with beaches and boating amenities.

Close to Fairmont resort and hot pools (and hot waterfall!), and Fairmont ski resort.

Riverside Golf Clubhouse, with restaurant, a mere 300yds walk.

Six other ski resorts within 2 hours drive including Panarama, Kimberly, Fernie, Kicking Horse(great powder), Lake Louise, and Sunshine. Heli skiing and cat skiing are just 40 minutes away. Cross country skiing from the back door onto the golf course. The Banff-Kootenay National park is adjacent to us with a wide range of ski trails and biking/hiking trails. Great for wildlife viewing and bird spotting in the largest wetlands in western Canada.

A twitchers paradise!

Fishing abounds in the many local lakes and rivers.

About The Owner

Mike & Pippa Heck - originally from England. We settled in Fairmont 20 years ago and love the area. We raised 2 kids in the house, but they have since flown the coop, so now we love having other families enjoy our lovely home and the area.

The Owner purchased this house in 1991

Why The Owner chose British Columbia Mountains

We actually designed and built the house ourselves as a family home. We wanted to be on the golf course as we are keen golfers and close to the ski hill as we wanted to teach our kids to ski.

It is a wonderful area to raise children and enjoy family life. We all enjoy the golf course, and the hot pools, and all the outdoor activities in the area.

What makes this house unique

We love sitting on the back deck overlooking the golf course on warm summer evenings and watching all the golfers go by. Many evenings we walk down along the Columbia river - just yards from the property, or float or canoe along the river. We are keen gardners and take great pleasure in our lovely flower beds every summer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very dated property, but still great location

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at the property the first week of August 2016. The location is everything you want it to be. The views around the property and the amenities are perfect. Love the Fairmont location for golf, hot springs, easy access to many lakes and hiking in the area. That part is a 5/5!

The house has plenty of room for a large family to be comfortable. The furniture, beds, bedding, drapes, pool table, are very dated... very! The landscaping around the property had many weeds growing up from the trim and concrete. The fencing was falling over on the one side of the house and the rail on the stairs for the hot tub was pulled off. The hot tub man was at the property when we checked in and said he would be back the next day to repair the railing.... never saw him and it never was repaired for the week we were there. The kitchen was of good size for entertaining but again dated with an ok fridge and cook top in the island with no exhaust hood... made for some tough cooking.

My family loved the pool table and comfortable family room for relaxing in the down times. We loved the location. Just wish someone would have told us that it was so dated and well used.

Great place to stay in the beautiful Columbia Valley

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. Since the weather was a bit chilly, the hot tub was used a lot! We had some of our family stay with us and no one felt crowded because the home has lots of room. 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms was a nice feature. The pool table was enjoyed by the men & boys. The kitchen is well stocked with lots of dishes, cutlery, pots & pans, etc. & the big family table was a bonus! The loft was a hi-lite for our grandchildren --- they treated it like it was their special domain. On hot days, the air conditioning was great. Cable TV and Wi-Fi were both used extensively and much appreciated.

Although the home has had some renovations, it is dated----but still very enjoyable.

Love this wonderful spacious home!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home for large family gatherings in the most beautiful setting of Fairmont, BC! Lots of room to spread out in with three suites for privacy...all clean and well maintained. The kitchen is fabulous for cooking together ( and our family loves to all cook!) as well as great seating for family meals. The large table is also great for games, puzzles, or projects in-between meals. We loved the pool table and hot tub for activities ongoing at the house during our stay...if we weren't heading to the hot springs or hiking in the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a great review, it is always a pleasure to see that our property is so appreciated and you had such a good time. The large 14 seater dining table has always been a great feature for large family gatherings, and the oak pool table adjacent to the living room and kitchen enables different groups to interact while pursuing different activities and always seems popular.

Very Comfortable and Spacious for Family Get Togethers

  • 5 of 5

Our Family with 3 generations enjoyed our stay. This designer home has a well stocked kitchen with dishes, cutlery, and large fridge and many hand appliances--perfect for any cook and large groups. Super dining table for 12, was ideal for meals together and playing cards in the evening. We also enjoyed playing pool, golfing on 2 courses nearby and relaxing in the hot tub. Quiet location with great views from the deck and nice 360 views of mountains from the loft. Huge backyard was fun for yard games. Also enjoyed walks by the river through the golf course. The Owners and manager were very helpful...Thank you! We will be back in the Fall.
