Great family stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a family wedding to attend in Sparwood, and this house was perfect for our larger group (8 people). It was very spacious and comfortable, and was well-stocked with dishes/kitchen utensils/towels, etc. Lots of room to park multiple vehicles. Nice quiet neighbourhood. Mike & Charmaine were very easy to deal with and were always quick to respond to messages.

Very nice property in a quiet location

  • 4 of 5

The house is very spacious, clean, and well furnished, and it's a nice touch to provide fire wood during the winter months! It is a close walk to really nice cross-country ski trails, we saw deer out the back window, and there is a free indoor skating rink about 10 minutes drive from the house as well as an excellent indoor activity pool for families for a small fee.

My main reason for not giving it 5 stars are that it is not as close to the Fernie Alpine Resort as described. Even on the clearest day, driving 100 km/h (above the speed limit!) on a dry road, it took 28 minutes door to door to get to the hill (so not 20 minutes), and on the days when it was snowing, it took up to 35 minutes as cars were naturally going no more than 70 km/h. We didn't mind this too much because we enjoyed the quiet of Sparwood, but if you expect a 20 minute drive it's not going to happen!

Altogether a very nice place with loads of space, I recommend it if you don't want to be in the Fernie town centre.

Weekend away

  • 5 of 5

perfect place for the 8 of us to get away and relax. Every couple had a queen sized bed. the only disappointment was that the deck is on the side of the house and not facing the open space to the back of the house but really just a minor detail which didn't detract from our stay. would recommend it to friends.

Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place for a family get together or a largish group gathering. We were 9 with 6 adults and 3 kids aged 10-13 and it worked perfectly for us. While we didn't spend a lot of time in the house, the kids thoroughly enjoyed having 3 floors in which to burn off any excess energy. The house description is accurate and speaks for itself. It is equipped as described so you could arrive with nothing but food and make out very well. As for location, we did day trips to Waterton (about 2 hours one way) as well as into the West Castle area SW of Pincher Creek, the Crowsnest Pass and around the SE Kootenays. Endless places to hike, fish and sight see within an hour or two. A great place to stay!

Family get away

  • 5 of 5

This home was great for our 4 generation family get away. It is a large home with bedrooms spaced out over 3 floors. The rooms are quiet, well furnished with a bathroom on every level. The kitchen/living area was perfectly arranged. The location in Sparwood was excellent for walks and day trips. We would highly recommend this place.

Great Cabin for Large Group

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin as part of a trail race with 7 team members. There was plenty of room for everyone and a great kitchen which allowed us to prepare the necessary food for the race as well as a great communal space for everyone to hang out in together. There was also room for anyone to take naps in or relax in when you didn't want to be with the group.

Great location and facility.
