Ski, Fish, Hike and Bike in the Fernie East Kootenay Rockies, while staying in this executive-style condo that offers all the amenities of luxury living. Our condo is part of the historic 901 Old School House in Fernie which has successfully blended the old with comfortable contemporary style living. The original 1908 brick walls were incorporated as part of the indoor decor, as seen throughout the condo. One of the bedrooms was part of the original bell tower and has a private stairwell.

The 19 foot ceilings and open concept give guests the feel of the big outdoors that makes Fernie a favourite place for avid adventurists. Fernie is known for its powder skiing, world class fly fishing, and mountain biking. Hiking trails abound with spectacular 360 views. Simply said, Fernie has a small town hospitality with big opportunities to satisfy any visitor.

Since we are located in downtown Fernie, it is a one block walk to restaurants/cafes, groceries, banks, shopping, pubs & nightlife, the Museum, Arts Centre, movie theatre, and community indoor pool with waterslide and splash park. This spacious condo has a full modern kitchen which exceeds all expectations for both the traditional or gourmet cook including granite counter tops, stainless appliances, a modern natural gas range, and wine & beverage fridge. The dining table and breakfast bar can comfortably seat 9 people. The in-suite separate laundry room has an extra large front load washer/dryer. Guests have access to a year round hot tub and exercise room, and there is an on-site spa offering massage, facials, and manicures.

After your hard day at play, relax on the private balcony with a spectacular view of the Canadian Rockies, or settle into the cozy chairs in the open-concept living area next to the fireplace. Your feet will always stay warm with the natural fir hardwood flooring. Sleep restfully in hotel quality beds covered with cozy duvets. Each bedroom has its own full ensuite bathroom with walk in rain shower, and the master bath also has a cast iron soaker tub with his and hers vanity. Master bedroom also has a private balcony. All bedrooms with ensuites have a lock-off to ensure complete privacy. All bedroom windows are equipped with wooden blinds allowing for late morning sleeps.

Our desire is to have our guests make Fernie part of their vacation experience every season. We hope our condo remains part of your plan.

Wonderful condo in Fernie

  • 5 of 5

I have had the opportunity to stay twice at this condo and absolutely love it. The most recent stay was in July for a Ladies Weekend. Kristine was there to meet us when we arrived and gave us information about the condo and Fernie.

The condo was perfect for a group of girls. Every room are all a good size and there is a bathroom for each room. There is a great seating area for people to relax in and the balcony was a great place both in the mornings and afternoon. The location is perfect for walking to most of the great restaurants in Fernie and the downtown shopping area.

The Spa located in the building was also fantastic.

Would stay at this condo again the next time we are in Fernie.

Perfect Accommodations for 3 couples - It would be difficult to find better lodging and location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations in almost every category. Each room is well appointed, the kitchen and dining area, living room, bathrooms and bedrooms are spacious, comfortable, and very clean! We were greeted by Kristine who was so helpful in explaining features of the condo, amenities in the building, as well as local community resources. Our party of three couples had all we needed for our stay! We would not hesitate to recommend this property as a perfect get away in the lovely town of Fernie. We found a treasure when we booked this condo!

901 Old Schoolhouse - Great weekend in Fernie with friends

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for our annual Labor Day long weekend trip with two other couples. In retrospect, we were surprised that this property was still available.

This unit is better than advertised. The space and the amenities were more than we could have asked for. The beautiful finishes of this heritage building give a modern contemporary feel with "old school" (literally) warmth of the original brick walls.

With regard to the owner's preparedness, thoroughness and attention to detail, I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was to have Kristine meet us at the property and go through the unit and its history as well as provide us with an orientation to the town of Fernie including places to go for restaurants, shopping, activities, etc.

The unit is located so close to the historic downtown of Fernie that the only reason we required a vehicle during our stay was to get to Fernie and to head out on our hike. As a result of the forest fire concerns during our weekend there, many of the activities that had been planned had to be abandoned but having a beautiful place like this made the trip completely enjoyable and great for catching up and visiting with friends.

We will stay here again when we are next in beautiful Fernie. Thanks Kristine and Pierre!

Beautiful views from windows and balconies, comfortable, pristine, historic property!

  • 5 of 5

Kristine was very professional, accommodating, helpful and friendly. Her charismatic exposed-brick walled property was immaculate and had everything we needed plus cozy linens, and a FULLY equipped, modern kitchen that was a joy to cook in. The location was superb with coffee shops, groceries, adorable restaurants and historical buildings to explore within 2 blocks.

Pictures do not do this rental justice!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled when we arrived at 901! Not only did this lovely upscale condo meet our expectations it was absolutely perfect for us. Three huge bedrooms each with their own ensuite bathroom was perfect for sharing with two other couples each having our own space as well as a gourmet kitchen and comfortable living area. Beds very comfortable. Location is great...walk to anywhere in Fernie. We really hope to be back soon! Kristine was terrific in providing information and recommendations for restauants etc and a pleasure to deal with throughout the process. We really hope to return soon.
