Lots of room and fun for the whole family at this unique pet friendly vacation home. Two extra large bedrooms upstairs can also serve as additional recreational space. There is a fireplace with an upper deck sporting spectacular views. In this room there is also a TV for VHS videos with a library of videos to view and a stereo. This is a great space for the kids to play and relax after a busy day.
The main floor has the satellite TV, a wood fireplace and a large wrap around deck with the same mountain views as the upper floor. The kitchen is well equipped with a propane BBQ right outside the door on the deck.
The large basement has a ping pong table for some indoor fun and lots of room for skis, golf clubs or other recreational equipment that you may want to store. With four bedrooms, there is lots of room for everyone to spread out and enjoy themselves at this mountain getaway.

We built this mountain home ourselves and truly enjoy coming out enjoy all the area has to offer. The drive from Calgary is especially pretty through the two mountain parks so that by the time we arrive we are truly relaxed and feel like we have left the hustle and bustle of city life behind us....especially when our friends, the deer are waiting in our yard to welcome us. We are excited to share our home with you and hope that you enjoy yourselves and have a memorable stay.
Terry Van de Geer or Diane Wilkinson purchased this house in 1995
This area is a golf mecca with over 10 courses within a 45 minute radius. Most of these courses are championship courses. We also enjoy the skiing in the winter. The Fairmont Ski Hill is a 10 minute drive away, and is a great place for family downhill skiing. Just down from the Fairmont Ski Hill are the Hot Springs which are fabulous after a day on the slopes. For more challenging slopes Kimberley and Panorama are both an hour away.
We really like the fact that you can put on your cross country skis right at the house and ski over to Riverside Golf course, or go down to the road to Columbia Lake. If you don't feel like cooking you can always walk to the restaurant or the pub at Riverside Golf Course, or over to the Farside Pub or hop in your car and go to fine dining at the Hoo Doos Resturant 5 minutes down the road.
Hello Terry and Diane:
Just to let you know that we had a great week-end and everything was in perfect order.
We had a group of six people and there was a bed for everyone.
We definitely plan to visit again and tell friends about the cabin.
The only thing we did, over and above your household supplies, was bring eco-friendly household products (i.e. eco detergents and unbleached coffee filters)--we have allergy issues in the family like itchy skin from conventional cleaning products.
Also, my Dad, who is retired from construction, kept walking around the property admiring the recent handiwork. He couldn't believe the attention to detail and workmanship. It definitely shows that your property is a project that's meaningful to you. The wrap around veranda is an all-season treatment--it maximizes the use of the space and gives everybody room to roam (or read). You can sit in the sun or move to the shade.
You could post the property on screen with a 3-D cam that you sometimes see in real estate sites (you can turn the image around 360 degrees). This would showcase the features that make this cabin so workable and wonderful for the entire family.
Thank you for your excellent service,
Bernadette and family
Our family thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay. Diane and Terry were great and everything went smoothly. While there we visited Fairmont hot springs several times and swam and boated in Windermere and Columbia lakes, and paid a visit to Fort Steele. The house was perfect for us - gramma and grampa on the main floor and the young'uns upstairs. We made good use of the BBQ and had a wiener roast in the fire pit. We would highly recommend this property to anyone.
The house is in very good condition, very clean and is located in a nice and quiet place close to all activities Fairmont has to offer.
Description provided by the owner is accurate.
The kitchen has all necessary appliances and utensils to prepare any kind of meal.
Cozy family room with wood fireplace is great for enjoying a glass of wine by a fire after a day of outdoor activities.
We would recommend it to our friends.
My family and I could not have been happier. The booking was hassle free, and the place was as described. Beautiful quiet neighbourhood with a large private yard. The beds were comfortable and the house was clean. The kitchen was well equipped. The place felt like our home away from home. I definitely would recommend this property and plan to stay here again.
This location was the awesome serenity in the mountains we needed. Beautiful views, large decks and lots of windows.
The house is nicely decorated, spacious with large bedrooms, bright and very comfortable.
The wrap around deck was excellent to BBQ, relax, enjoy the views, take in the fresh air, see wildlife on and around the property and NO noise from traffic.
A fire pit is also available which we enjoyed outside.
This is a very well kept and maintained home both inside and outside. Attention to detail is remarkable especially regarding cleanliness including the outside BBQ.
Hope this house is available for our next excursion in the Fairmont area = totally recommended.
What a great location !! Every morning we sat around the kitchen table and watched the sun come up over the mountains while enjoying our first cup of coffee of the day . The location of the house is great you have no noise from the highway and all you can hear are the birds chirping when you open the French doors in the bedroom and we were even blessed with the appearance of a deer just off the front patio by the tree .
Diane and Terry were excellent hosts we found the very clean and well stocked with all amenities of home . They were eager to make sure all of our needs and concerns were addressed . The floor plan of the house is fantastic with a set of French doors in the master bedroom leading on to a great coverd deck and the beds were so great it was like sleeping on a cloud we both had great sleeps !! Also it was great outside with the fire pit and there was no shortage of wood to burn and it was nice to go inside and be able to have a real fire no a natural gas fire . We also found it nice to be able to BBQ and we did every night it was so handy to have the BBQ by the door and every thing worked great !! We would just like to thank Diane and Terry for letting us rent there place and we are looking forward to renting from them again because there is so much to do and we never had enough time !! Your place is like a little heaven on earth !! Thanks again Dennis and Vilma
The place is centrally located being close to golf course and ski hill. The kitchen was well stalked with condiments and fairly clean and there was lots of board games for our 2 grandchildren to enjoy. There's plenty of bedrooms with extra sheets and towels and all the beds were made. In general the house looked like it had been cleaned but not for awhile with dust settled on the floors and the rug in the living room was full of fuzz. They have 2 dryers which were both full of sheets and towels. The BBQ was not cleaned so we had to spend quite a bit if time cleaning it before use. But what was not pleasant was the "funky" smell that was present when we first arrived and then every time we returned. We were able to get rid of it (for awhile) by lighting the living room fireplace and keeping the ceiling fan on. If this smell was dealt with and the place was a little cleaner (BBQ for sure) we would recommend it.
