Overview

Fernie 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.

Clean Family condo

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jerry for answering all of my questions about your Fernie condo:) We were racing in the Fondo and needed a large kitchen to prepare meals and comfortable beds for all 8 of us after the race. We were also able to enjoy some hiking at the ski hill and swimming at the near by Rec Center. There were plenty of towels and extra bedding. The lock box was easy to open and the extra parking was nice. My kids want to go back and have a Netflix party on the hidabed. WE WILL BE BACK :)

Lots of beds, affordable and pleasant owner

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean, well stocked, and a great location. Everything was as described in the condo and the full kitchen was perfect for when we wanted to eat in. Each of our 3 kids loved having their own bed (they usually have to share when we rent a condo). We couldn't have imagined a better, more affordable place to stay on our first Fernie mountain biking vacation. Jerry is excellent to rent from. He was very responsive to our relatively minor issue (instructions for the lock box). It is a quick, easy drive to both the ski hill and downtown. Be sure to check out Yamagoya where they make some excellent Sushi at very reasonable prices. All in all, we would not hesitate to stay here again for our next visit to Fernie. Thanks Jerry!

Great location and lots to do

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental for both ski trips in the winter and fishing, biking, hiking in the summer! We came for the summer this time as we had stayed here previously during the winter. The tasteful decorations and general coziness of the condo made us feel right at home. The view of the mountains from the building is beautiful. There was complementary wifi and netflix for the kids that made bedtime a breeze. We were worried about kitchen supplies when we arrived, but the owners had the place stocked with everything we needed. The bunk beds were fun for the kids, and the master bedroom was comfortable for my wife and I. Lots of clean towels for us to use, which was great since we went swimming at the leisure centre every evening. The owner was lovely to work with. We are so happy we stayed here, and look forward to coming back.

Perfect stay, would recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was exactly as advertised. The kids loved sleeping on the sofa bed since they could watch Netflix on the tv in the evening (included by owner). It was very clean and comfortable, had everything we needed. Access was easy and exactly as described. The condo is close to downtown Fernie both driving or walking. It is also a short drive to the ski hill where we enjoyed the nice weather on the Lizard Creek patio. We stayed here in the summer but Fernie is a fun town no matter what the season. Great for skiing in the winter and biking and hiking in the summer. Try Nevados for dinner and Big Bang Bagel for breakfast or lunch. We will definitely return in the future.

Excellent Customer Service

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jerry for responding to all my questions about the Fernie area and your condo. We found the lock box and condo as we had stayed in the Fernie area before. We found the sleeping arrangements for all 8 ( 6 adults and 2 kids) of us very comfortable and we will be back next year to explore more of the mountain. The condo was very well supplied and maintained. The Netflix and the wifi kept us entertained at night. I wish the summer was longer as we were very sad to leave. I noticed the condo books up fast and now we know why. Thank you again:)

Misled with amount of beds

  • 1 of 5

My group and I stayed here in July 2016. Prior to the booking I made it very clear we were 4 adults not sharing beads and not wishing to use the sofa as a bed. I was told that the place was perfect for my group. In an e-mail I said I was confused about the description of beds and the photos not matching up.

Here is the question I sent

Can you please tell me what beds are in each of the rooms. I am a bit confused with the description.

We are 4 adults. Nobody will be sharing a bed.

The map did not load so where about's is the condo.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I was told that the place was perfect for my group.

Here is the description in the e-mail

The Fernie Two Bedroom Condo comes complete with a king size bed in the master bedroom, a double bed, and twin bunk bed in the second bedroom, a double pull out sofa bed in the living room and 1 blow up cot. The condo also has a fully equipped kitchen and dining room with all the necessary utensils and place settings.

When we arrived I called straight away and left a message. I called again everyday for the next 4 days.

I also e-mailed and sent a message on his escape away facebook page. No response.

The description makes it sound like there is a double bed and a double bunk in the second room, enough for 3 separate sleepers. This was not the case. It was a bunk bed where the bottom was a double and the top was a single. We had enough beds for 3 adults to sleep separately and nowhere for the 4th. I was clear in the phone call that we did not want to use the sofa as a bedroom. The worst part was that our call was not returned and absolutely no response whatsoever. I have stayed in Fernie for the last 4 years in the same place but the owner sold and had to find somewhere new. I would not recommend this place. The sinks were blocked in the kitchen and bathroom and needed plunging daily. The building is very old and smells of years of smoking. Laundry is not in condo. No channels on the tv. It is a basement condo with hardly any light. For the price you will find much better. Any motel would have been better.
