Why John chose British Columbia Mountains

I was born and raised in Banff, which is a World Heritage site. Even though I completed my education and continued to live in Calgary, my heart has always been in the mountains. I had the opportunity to buy our chalet, which is only 2 hours and 15 minutes from my door, and we couldn't refuse.

The chalet is our get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. My wife, Donna, and I are avid hikers and I enjoy skiing . This chalet and the surrounding area offers all types of outdoor activities and we have taken advantage of most everything available.

What makes this chalet unique

There is so much to do in the Canadian Rockies and we are centrally located to take advantage of as many activities as possible, but if you just want to relax and enjoy the scenery you can start a fire (in your private fire pit) and just take in mother nature with your favorite refreshment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of three spent 10 days in September 2015 at your very comfortable chalet in the mountains of B.C. There was nothing lacking. Everything we needed was there. The whole place was spotless. The beds were comfortable and I especially liked the rustic decor. That huge stone fireplace was so cozy in the evenings. We thoroughly enjoyed the fire pit outside. It was a perfect place to sit and talk over the events of the day.

Your chalet is so beautifully located. We could see snow capped Chancellor Peak right from the front of the chalet. And from the kitchen window I could do dishes and watch the sun change the view on the forest & mountains straight ahead. We walked down to the Kicking Horse River, which is a short hike from the chalet. There we watched people boarding large rafts to challenge the river. Also, there was a zip line. There is much to do in the mountains. Besides fabulous scenery everywhere we visited Banff, Jasper, the Icefields Parkway, saw glaciers and spectacular waterfalls and much more. Johnson’s Canyon is a must as is Lake O’Hara. We saw mountain goats, elk, a bear & cub.

Thank you John, for sharing your lovely chalet with us. It helped make our vacation very special.

A little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic. Back to nature with all the comforts. Carpark was close with asphalt path to room (trolleys available in carpark to help carry luggage). The chalet was located in that it felt like you were completely on you own, but you were actually amongst other similar chalets. Snow as all around us , and the manager was so helpful and friendly but she also kept out of the way. The chalet was very comfortable, even for a family of 5. The kitchen was well equipped. We bought groceries in Banff on way to chalet as we were planning on cooking. There were also a few good grocery stores in Golden. It was nice to be able to cook some home cooked meals after travelling and eating out for several weeks.

So warm inside and the only thing I can complain about is the shower was quite small and if you are trying to book ahead or like us talk on skype back to Australia, the WiFi is very slow. .

The rest is magnificent. I will stay again one day, and the town of Golden is so close, only 15 mins down the road, with Kicking Horse ski resort only 10 mins up the road from Golden. One of the best ski resorts i have ever skiied.

We walked down to the creek and stood on the frozen ice. Had marshmallows outside, and just could of sat there and relaxed if we weren't so busy looking at the hot springs, Lake Louise and Banff. Emerald Lake and The natural bridge were very close and well worth seeing. Would have loved to cross country ski over the lake but unfortunately time didn't permit.

Best part of our one month holiday and loved the bear teeth marks in the bin outside. Really knew we were in the Canadian forests.

The property was as described,very clean (even got fresh towels half way through our 4 night stay) and well maintained. Would definitely recommend this property to others. Thanks for a great stay!!

Wonderful Hideaway in Canadian Rockies

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a secluded location nearby to Banff and Yoho for 4 days of exploring and came upon this jewel! The chalet, part of a small grouping of similar units, fit our needs perfectly. The well-built log cabin was just the right mix of rustic charm and practical convenience. We enjoyed preparing breakfast each morning in the well-appointed kithchen before our day's adventures in the area.

When we booked the chalet, the owner offered many great suggestions for day trips. One of our favorite restaurants was The Truffle Pig in the little town of Field, on the way to Lake Louise. Another day trip took us through Golden where we enjoyed lunch and local brew at the Tap pub. Also, don't miss stopping for a meal at the beautiful Banff Springs lodge. The food and the view were exceptional.

I'd gladly recommend this chalet to friends and family. The photos in the listing are accurate and the property is beautifully maintained. We would definitely like to return some day.
