Overview

British Columbia House Rental Photos and Description

Evergreen, modern stand-alone residence in Big White with a queen bed in both master bedrooms, a single-over-double bunk bed in the third bedroom, and a single bunk bed in the den. Amazing mountain views. Real log fireplace. Private hot tub and barbeque.

Evergreen welcomes its guests into a large heated slate floor entrance way with rustic raw iron hooks for all your winter gear, a great wooden bench and custom made ski boot dryer. Its here that you first notice the vaulted ceilings and the superior construction craftsmanship.

An exposed beam ceiling in the kitchen adds to the country charm. The kitchen has modern appliances (with a gas range) and an island table, with 4 bar stools. A large window over the sinks offers floods of natural lighting. The dining area has a bench window seat and the table offers enough seating for 10. Warm wood floors throughout the main living area add to the alpine ambience of this impressive chalet. To the right of the table a 25" flat screen TV is mounted on the wall.

The centre attraction is the rock face, wood burning fireplace. Snuggle up on the comfy leather couches and enjoy the crackling warmth. Plenty of seating is available in the living area, with a couch, an oversized leather chair and ottoman, and a loveseat that provides an extra single pull out bed. A large coffee table with storage under the table top completes this room. Floor to ceiling picture windows on either side of the fireplace give great natural lighting all the way up to the vaulted ceiling. Also on this floor is a half bathroom and the entrance to a covered deck with hot tub and barbeque.

A carpeted staircase looks over to the chalet entrance from the landing, providing natural light on the stairs. The loft is dedicated to a master bedroom, with a gorgeous 4 post bed and matching side tables with lamps and a clock radio. The ceiling is vaulted exposing ornate beams. This room features a large window seat with built in drawers. There are shutters on window frames looking down onto the living room that add to the privacy the loft. The large master ensuite has a step up soaker tub shower, with slate tiling.

Down the carpeted stairs to the lower level, attention to detail is evident along the way. An ornate antique wooden framed mirror and side table are a few of the personal touches that add to the charm of this charming chalet.

A second master bedroom with electric fireplace and beautiful oak sleigh bed with matching side tables and chest of drawers includes a full en suite. RentChalets provides complimentary toiletry products. A large double closet is also included in this fabulous bedroom.

To the right of the master bedroom, is the laundry facility with a large tiled area and lots of space.

Down the hall is the third bedroom which has a funky built in chest of drawers as well as a small closet. This room has a wooden single-over-double bunk bed set. Across the hall is the den that includes a set of single-over-single bunk beds and a Play station.

Located in the hallway is the main bathroom.

The Forest is located above Snow Pines Estate, on the edge of a forest; and has its own dedicated ski run through the forest from Serwra’s (the green run from the top of the Ridge Rocket and Snow Ghost.) To ski out you cross over Snow Pines Way, back on Lower Snow Pines Road, and down to Ridge Rocket, Snow Ghost and Plaza Chairs Lifts.

The Big White Village Center can be accessed via a very pretty lit walking path (groomed by snow cats every evening) that will take 20 minutes or you can catch the free Big White shuttle bus which runs every ½ hour. The bus stop is located at the top of Snow Pines Crescent, a 5 minute walk from Evergreen. Parking is available for 1 car beside the Chalet, but if you require more parking, space is available at Happy Valley for $6.00/day and parking permits may be purchased at the Happy Valley Day Lodge.

Reviewer Comments:

Loved this chalet. We traveled with a group of 5 adults and it was a perfect size for our group. The kitchen and living room area was the perfect size for us, the property was very clean. The boot drying rack was very handy. The property management company is very professional, and great to work with. They were able to store our bags for us so we could meet our check-out time but also ski during the day before our shuttle picked us up in the evening. The hot tub was very clean. The ski out was a little hard to find, but once we did, it was perfect (walk to the right on the paved road instead of downhill and its at the end). (The ski in goes right to the front door if you pick the correct fork from it, take the first downward fork and a hard left :))

The free village shuttle was very easy to find and a very short walk from the property, it was convenient.

The app is great - they send you the door codes so you don't need to check-in anywhere, you can just go straight to the property.

Only recommendation is with garbage - since this property does not have a garage and we could not figure out where the refuse area that we were supposed to place our garbage in was located, we ended up with all of our food waste in our entrance hallway. It would be nice to have a larger bin for recycling and waste on the premises for kitchen waste, so we don't have garbage bags in the foyer.

Its an awesome place, although its far away from ski hill

Manager responded on 3/29/2016:

Hi Alex.

Thank you for your 5 Star review of Evergreen Glades at Big White Ski Resort. Hopefully after a fun day on the slopes you found time to relax in the private hot tub or unwind in front of the real wood fireplace. Evergreen Glades is one of the more remote residences which helps to create the whole log cabin feeling while still being only a 10 minute ski from 3 chairlifts.

Alex, we hope you have a great summer and we look forward to hearing from you when you start to plan next years awesome ski vacation at Big White Ski Resort.

Regards

Gareth

Reviewer Comments:

Beautiful stand alone cabin with a romantic loft bedroom. The real wood burning fireplace was a nice touch but did not have any kindling to start a fire with. The glass door to view the fire was so charred and black I had to clean it myself. The coffee maker was very cheap and leaked. The bed in the loft was small and very uncomfortable. We could feel the springs underneath us. Even a foam mattress cover would have improved that. The ski in part was great however it felt more like a cross country ski out to reach the closest lift while crossing roads with traffic. I would not recommend staying here for any spring skiing as we were just able to make the trek to the hill during our stay the week of February 22,2016. Over all a very cozy and well maintained cabin to stay in

Hi Murray

Thank you for your review of Evergreen Glades at Big White Ski Resort. We're glad that you had a great time and hope that you managed to find time to enjoy the great views from the hot tub as well as the warmth of the real wood fireplace. With regard to your feedback on the fireplace, the coffee maker and the sofa in the loft we have reviewed all these points and have made some changes to our cleaning processes as well as suggesting to the owners that some minor upgrades may be in order. We understand your comments on the ski out from the residence however we find that most of our guests prefer the ski out over a bus or car ride or over a long walk as at most other resorts. Also as we recently received another 30 cms of fresh snow the ski out is still being groomed daily and will be fully usable until the end of the season as it is most seasons.

Murray, once again thanks for your feedback, we hope you have a great summer and we look forward to welcoming you back again next season.

Regards

Cam

Lodge easy to find with directions provided. Lodge was very clean , comfortable, cosy, perfect. for our first white Christmas experience. Very spacious and well equipped for all our needs. Neighbours friendly and helpful . Village shuttle bus just around the corner alternatively about a 15 minute walk to the village or a 5 minute drive in the car. Room for 1 car space. Great spa in lodge to relax in after daily skiing. Minor maintenance issues were dealt with promptly by rent chalet staff. All in all a great lodge , we were a party of 8 adults so highly recommend this lodge at Big White

Manager responded on 1/19/2016:

Thank you for the review Robert. It is also one of our few residences with a real fire. Very cozy for dark winter evenings.

We hope to see you again next season.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was looked after very well. We all enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely return. One issue was the shared parking spaces with the unit next door which was easily remedied once we where able to talk to the residents(but it could have been avoided with posts dictating which spots are for which unit).

Manager responded on 3/12/2015:

Hi Kris

Thanks for your 5 star review of Evergreen Glades at Big White Ski Resort. We're glad you enjoyed the residence and are planning to join us again next year. We look forward to welcoming you back again. With regards to the parking we will liaise with the owners of Evergreen Glades and will see if the spaces can be 'marked' in any way as posts typically don't work due to the depth of snow accumulation over the course of the ski season.

Regards

Maddy

We had a great time staying at the Evergreens, a few things needed attention initially but got resolved right away by the company. As this is our 4th annual family vacation with our friends, we would consider staying there again.
