Overview

British Columbia Mountains Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 8)

Large family friendly corner unit, sleeps 8, full kitchen in a quiet location. Step out your door to hiking or mountain biking the many trails that Fernie offers. Just a short walk to cool downtown shops and excellent restaurants with street patios.

$129 - $399 per night including tax and professional cleaning.

Experience Fernie’s unique mountain “powder paradise” playground in the winter where skiing and snowboarding at Fernie Alpine Resort is rated number 1 in North America by Skiing Magazine for powder.

Fernie is just one of those special places, a place that is still waiting to live up to its full potential while fully enjoying the slow rise to stardom. It is also home to some amazing local talent, whether it be Olympic hopeful Emily Brydon or even Alex Lifeson, guitarist of the band Rush. There is a small, but growing, group of talented local skiers and riders who are taking the World Freeski Tour by storm. Athletes such as Aaron Schmidt, Caleb Brown, Martha Burley, Ross Janzen, Janina Kuzma, Luke Nelson, Levi Marriott, Ben Olgilvie and Jamie Rizzuto belong to a posse of skiers and riders called The Fernie Freeride Team, which represent Fernie in Canada and around the world. The accomplishments of these athletes reads like a results list from the pro skiers and riders that we watch in our favorite ski and snowboard movies

After skiing you can kick back and enjoy any of the numerous live entertainment venues in Fernie. The Arts Station is the heart and soul of the arts community in Fernie offering a schedule of various singer songwriters throughout the year. Other local hot spots include the Central Hotel and the Northern Hotel where live music is offered.

Shops in the historical beautiful downtown boutiques hold many surprising finds. Unique shops such as the Artists Co-op offer hand made jewelry and original paintings. A local microbrewery aptly named Fernie Brewing Company produces several beers called First Trax, Fernie Griz Ale and What the Huck.

Fernie offers the genuine charm of a historic mining town and an unparalleled outdoor experience in every season.

Summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank You Jerry for all of the comforts of home. Fernie was just what our family of six needed to get away from the city. Escape Away was clean and very comfortable, thank you Jerry for allowing us to keep our bikes in the condo. The bedrooms were very spacious and the extra towels for the recreation center were very nice. Netflix and the wifi were very strong as I had business to attend to and we didn't have any issues. We were able to walk downtown and enjoy an amazing dinner at Loaf, just as you suggested. We will be returning to enjoy the skiing

Simple

  • 4 of 5

Was nice, simple and clean. We will be back in the winter for a skiing weekend! Would be nice if they had more of the kitchen basics (spices and oils) to save you from buying them for a weekend. Was nice for what we needed during a biking weekend with 5 guys.

Family Time

  • 5 of 5

Fernie meet our expectations for my father's Birthday Celebration. Thank you Jerry as your condo had plenty of room and was comfortable for my parents and the 4 of us. The kids enjoyed the netflix as well as the comfortable couches to lounge in after a day of swimming. We walked to the recreation center to enjoy the hot tubs and pool and then took advantage of the sunny weather and enjoyed an afternoon of nature walks. The condo was very clean and we had plenty of clean towels and sheets. The kitchen was also a fair size with a large dining table and plenty of room to sit. We will be back to enjoy the ski season as we went up the ski lift to do some sight seeing. Spectacular Vacation Rental

10/10 Spring Break FUN

  • 5 of 5

It was difficult to find a large condo to accommodate our family of 8, but Jerry at Escape Away was right there was plenty of room for all of us to make ourselves at home. The location was close to the ski hill and a short walk to the rec center. The condo was stocked with towels thank goodness we go through a lot of laundry and even made use of the washer and dryer down the hall. The kids prepared the breakfast in the morning and the adults were in charge of dinners, so we experienced all of the fabulous restaurants in town. Our teenagers recommend Big Bang Begals, Amazing!!!! We would of liked to stay longer, but it was fully booked. Thank you Jerry for sharing your condo, we will be back.

Unforgettable Experience

  • 5 of 5

I’m usually very picky on where I stay and this location and experience was great. There is a rec center with a swimming pool, hot tub, and water slide just down the street. The condo is close enough to the town that you can walk to it but far enough that it’s nice and peaceful. The beds are very comfy and the couch under the window is AMAZING! I was very happy with the kitchen too. It everything at my kitchen at home had. We could cook all our meals there and everyone could make the coffee just the way they like it with the coffee maker. Also it was nice having that pullout couch by the t.v so we all can relax and watch movies together. I slept on the bottom bunk in the bunkbeds and I had the best sleep. Especially after skiing all that powder. The skiing in Fernie is great! There is easy runs (green runs), medium (blue), hard (black), and super hard (double black). So I feel like there is skiing for everyone. And if you don’t feel like skiing; at the bottom of the hill by the chair lift on the left hand side (when you are heading down the hill) you have to go up a couple stairs and there is a sitting area with couches and a fire place. You can order excellent food there and drinks (aka beer). Overall I had a great time with my family and friends and it is something I will never forget and defiantly will be making another special trip very soon because it was worth it!

Perfect Family Condo

  • 5 of 5

Escape Away was our first time experiencing Fernie and we are so glad we chose to call Jerry. He was very friendly and helpful accommodating all of our family needs. My kids rented snowboards in town as there were many shops to choose from. The restaurants are plenty in town and the food on the hill was good. The wifi was excellent and the Netflix was a bonus for our resting bones. The condo was well supplied with extra towels and sheets as there were 6 of us. My kids also found the sauna room!!!!!!
