British Columbia Mountains Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Situated in Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Columbia Mountain Lodge is a bright and stylish 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom mountain home neatly laid out over three floors that comfortably sleeps up to 10 guests. Columbia Mountain Lodge is particularly suited for families and groups. Half-house (up to 4 guests) rentals are available at Owner's discretion.

The lodge is complete with the features you would expect in a luxury chalet including open plan living, fully equipped kitchen, satellite TV, mp3/ipod station, high speed internet, internal and external wood burning fireplaces, BBQ, hot tub, ski room with boot warmers and heated double garage. Four out of the five bedrooms can be configured as kings or twin XL beds which makes this attractive home very flexible and suitable for families and groups.

The lodge is only a short walk to the slopes and main gondola with ski in to the lodge in good snow conditions.

Enter this charming chalet at the basement level where there is a large coat and shoe closet. You will also find the first of two luxury en-suite master bedrooms with king/twin XL beds and DVD player, as well as a further bedroom with twin XLbeds, separate shower room and laundry room.

A wide staircase runs up the centre of the property from the entrance hall and brings you to the open plan main floor level with wood flooring. From here the dining area is straight ahead, the kitchen is to your left and the sunken living room is to the right. The stairs to the upper level carry on with large picture windows providing plenty of natural light up the stairwell.

The spacious fully equipped kitchen, with custom cabinets and granite work surfaces has all the amenities you would expect in a luxury home including range, oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, ice-maker, coffee maker and generous cooking utensils and table ware. There is a large granite surfaced central island which doubles as a breakfast bar and a separate comfy reading chair. There are French doors from the kitchen accessing on to the rear patio where seating is provided in the summer season.

The dining space, with ample seating, connects the kitchen to the lounge area and offers stunning panoramic views over the Columbia Valley.

The luxurious sunken living room features a wood burning fireplace, a vast sectional sofa, flat screen TV with satellite and DVD and an Ipod/MP3 dock. Guests can access the outdoor hot tub and fireplace through a side door leading to the rear patio.

There are three luxury bedrooms on the upper level: the second en-suite master bedroom with king/XL twin beds and stunning panoramic views, satellite TV and DVD player plus two further king/twin XL bedrooms and the family bathroom.

Outside, guests can soak in the 8 person hot tub in front of a wood burning fire place which is accessed from the living room or kitchen. There is nothing quite like relaxing in the hot tub watching the stars above: even better if there is light snowfall. There is also a BBQ which guests can use throughout the year.

Inside the heated double garage there is a dedicated area for ski/board storage with ski rack, heated boot warmers, benches and rubber matting. Access to this area is from both inside and outside the lodge.

The heated garage provides parking for 2 cars and there is parking on the drive for at a further 4 cars.

Keywords: Columbia Mountain Lodge, bright and stylish home, ski chalet, sleeps up to 10 guests, half house (up to 4 guests) rentals available, luxury living, open plan living on the main floor, internal and external wood burning fireplaces, hot tub, ski/boot room, short walk/ski to the slopes and the main gondola at KHMR

About Helen Kenyon

My husband and I are British and live in England. I am a lawyer and my husband works in the automotive industry. We live in a small village in an area of outstanding natural beauty known as 'the Cotswolds'. We live an outdoor life and have three horses, a dog and two chickens.

Helen Kenyon purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Helen Kenyon chose British Columbia Mountains

I first came to KHMR in 2003 and it was love at first sight. That feeling led me to purchase a plot and build our dream home. We truly believe that KHMR is one of the best, if not the best, ski hills in the world and we are delighted to welcome you into our home and share it with you.

What makes this chalet unique

KHMR combines superb snow, world class skiing and stunning scenery. It is a heady cocktail that draws lovers of the mountains and the outdoors to it time and time again whatever the season.

Stunning property- perfect stay for our family of 10!

  • 5 of 5

Really easy to book and communicate- all questions were answered quickly and clearly. The stay was amazing! The area is really beautiful and with the ski hill so close we were able to walk there in just a few minutes and enjoy the park and the restaurant. The house was the perfect size with nice, clean (and very comfortable) rooms. Plenty of bathrooms for everyone and the kitchen/ great room area kept everyone together but was large enough that it gave us space to move around. The hot tub and outdoor fireplace were also the perfect place to spend the evenings! Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone!

Only downside- the windows all face east so you get the morning sun and the blinds don't block the sunshine. Take a sleeping mask if you want to sleep past 7am. But don't let that deter you- this really is a beautiful place to stay.

Great house at KHMR..... had a great stay.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Columbia Mountain lodge in March 2016 where we had 3 bluebird days at Kickinghorse. Great weather and good snow conditions.... we love KHMR!

We were a few families with a few kids 2-6 yrs and the house easily accommodated us all with it's 5 bedrooms and it was great having 4 bathrooms as well. The main living area was very spacious and the kitchen was a good size to accommodate our family dinners in the evenings...

It was nice having the double garage and the boot drying racking to dry out our gear at the end of each day as well. We really enjoyed the oversized hot tub which can fit 8 very comfortably.

We had a great stay during our trip and would highly recommend this house. Easily walkable to the mountain....We had a great time!

Great ski cottage !

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed very much our stay at the Columbia Mutain Lodge. Lots of room and space for a large familly (or two small ones). The large kitchen is well equiped, with an island counter, plus a comfortable living room with a fireplace and a nice hot tub close by. Perfect setting for after-ski! Spectacular views of the mountains from the master bedroom. Short walk (5 min) easy access to the ski-gliding passage to the gondola. The owner was very kind and responsive to all our questions. Definitively recommendable, without any hesitation!

Top Notch Rental

  • 5 of 5

Property was immaculate. Beautiful warm welcoming home. The owner proactively provided all information of the home, appliances, check in and check out. Kitchen was well equipped. Home is a short 200yd walk to the slopes at Kicking Horse. Our group of Face Planters have been renting and skiing together for 25 yrs now, by far this was the best rental. We skied Kicking Horse 4 days, drove to Revelstoke 2 days and Heli Skied with Purcell Heli 1 day. Views from the home have to be can't capture the light of the sunrise and sunsets on the mountains. We would love to return soon. Highly recommended rental!

Outdoor fireplace topped this vacation house off.

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed with the large kitchen area for entertaining and the hot tub after a great day on the hill. The fireplace outside was too good to be true while barbecue-ing and enjoying hours in the hot tub.

Lots of room in the garage to gear down after skiing.

We have stayed in 6 houses now on the hill at Kicking Horse and this house ranks in the top 2. Nice set-up and easy access. The owners clearly laid out the house guidelines before our arrival. We needed a hot tub tune-up mid stay and the phone number left for us allowed us to slip into a clean hot tub after skiing.
