Forest Ridge Estates House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Walk in the door to a large entrance with in-floor heating, electric boot and mitt dryers and plush carpets. Here you will find two bedrooms, a full bath, a 60-inch screen TV with a selection of movies, games, a play station and a pool table. Bedroom #3 has a queen bed and bedroom #4 has four single bunk beds. On the second floor is an open concept kitchen, dining and living room and a huge half bath. The 20-foot ceilings take in the West runs of Panorama Ski Resort and the fourth hole of Greywolf Golf course. On one of two decks is your secluded 8-person hot tub and barbeque. The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need to make a turkey dinner, granite counter tops and a huge central island. Feel free to enjoy the provided games including a full poker set or sit and relax by the gas fireplace surrounded by a two story high stonewall.

On the upper level you will find the two master bedrooms both with their own attached en-suites. Bedroom #1 has queen bed and an over-sized tile shower. Bedroom #2 has a queen bed with a shower and a large soaker tub. All linens are a high thread count and the mattresses are extremely comfortable. There are TV’s in every room, with a total of six TV’s in the house!

The house is located on the most private and prestigious street in Panorama, directly across the street from Grey Wolf Golf Course, right beside a cross-country ski trail and three-minute drive from Panorama Village. This mountain dream home has it all!

Why Angela McConnell chose British Columbia

After looking at Fernie, Big White and Golden we decided on Panorama to build our dream vacation home because of all the amenities the village and the town of Invermere offer. In the winter we spend at least two weeks in our home skiing with our three children and enjoying friends. In the summer we spend a whole month golfing, enjoying the pool and water slides, hiking the mountain and on lake Windermere. The six hour drive for us is a challenge with three kids under the age of six but worth every minute. We built and supplied the house with everything we would need so that we can come without bringing our whole house with us. We hope you will enjoy our home away from home.

Wonderful Holiday Home!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I have been going to Panorama for many years as the kids were growing up, usually staying at the on hill condos. We haven't been there these past couple of years so when we decided to go away for the Christmas holidays this year I looked for a place that would be comfortable for all of us (including new spouses and grandparents!) This was my first experience with VRBO and I am SOLD! Angela made everything exceptionally easy, less "nerve racking" and very memorable! (I had a question about the water lines when we arrived and she was immediately in touch with me; no problems!) We even had an 'Elf' come shovel the back deck and front porch during the stay! Not only was the house beautiful and accommodating (first time that every one had their own bed!) but the setting was stunning! They had even set up a Christmas tree which perfectly set the mood! The house had enough space and was very comfortable to be enjoyed by all. And of course the pool table became a favourite post supper (slightly competitive!) event! My "pis de resistance" was the hot tub after a great day of skiing! Everyone enjoyed it immensely that on our final day there we started talking about when we're going back during the summer..... : )

Magical Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this fabulous home over Christmas last year and everything was picture perfect. You can tell that the owners have put thought and detail into absolutely everything on the property. We look forward to coming back for years to come!

Fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house had everything we needed! The kitchen was well equipped and the hot tub was great after a day of snowboarding! The pool table, board games, and xbox kept everyone entertained! There was plenty of room for 3 couples and 4 kids. Angela, the owner was great to deal with as well.

Great New Years Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends and I rented this house over New Years, as it has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, hot tub, and is close to the hill. Added bonuses were the pool table, heated basement floor, large entrance for dressing/undressing from skiing, right on snowshoe and cross country ski trails, and a large spacious kitchen and dining table. It was a 10 minute walk to Sunbird Chair and about a 30 minute walk to the main lodge or T-bar. The owner of the home was very quick to respond to inquiries and questions about the rental, making it easier to make our decision to book the place. This house was a great rental and I would recommend it to others. Had a great time ringing in the New Year!!

My wife, kids (7 and 10), brother-in-law, his fiancee and her brother had 4 wonderful days in Panorama thanks to the owner. The perfect snow conditions helped! The house was clean, extremely well laid out from the boot dryers walking in the door to the heated floors, living space on the main floor, entertainment (myriad of boardgames, gaming system, tvs and pool table), hot-tub and bedrooms. We had ample space for the seven of us and really enjoyed our stay. The house is less than 5 minutes from the upper parking lot at Panorama, which we had no problem getting into anytime between 9 and 10am. You are also less than five minutes from the general store at the resort, which has pretty much all the essentials that you would need including a modest selection of beer, wine and spirits.

My wife tells me that "they thought of absolutely everything" when it came to the kitchen. The kitchenware was good quality. We appreciate the Bose sound system hook up in the kitchen area, easy to access Wifi, and easy to use hot-tub. We would be back in a heartbeat, as would our fellow guests and we have already started the discussion about next year!!

The owner was easy to deal with in booking the house, responded promptly to queries.

We stayed in the house most evenings but did venture out one evening to Radium. There is an incredible family run Austrian restaurant on the main through road, I think called Helna's Stube. The best schnitzel we have all had! Wonderful service so I would highly recommend it.

Fabulous Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this home was so great to deal with. She is personable and quick to answer any inquiries. The property is well-maintained and clean. The photos provided on-line are accurate as is the description of the house.

I would certainly recommend this property to friends and family and I would not hesitate to stay there again! The layout is great and the hot tub is a good size.

We loved that the entry way is huge so you can get a group inside on tile floors and not have to worry about getting snow on carpet etc. The ski boot dryers were greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the FANTASTIC weekend!

Panorama Mountain Resort is every vacationers dream. Our favorite thing about Panorama for skiing is the runs go on forever. You spend more time on the mountain than on the chair lift. Perfect! RK Heliski is just down the road for the more adventurous and just outside the village is Toby Creek Adventures for snowmobiling in the winter and quading in the summer. Definitely a first class experience! You will also have access to the all-season pool five minutes away in the village. Unwind with your fellow outdoor enthusiasts; the view is breathtaking.

For fine dining visit Earl Grey Lodge. A dining experience not to be missed. The village also has a pub, a restaurant, a pizza joint, a cafe and lodge-style food.

A twenty minute drive into the town of Invermere you will find foods and restaurants from around the world, try the Quality Bakery and Blue Dog Cafe. Fubuki Sushi is also great. For coffee lovers go to Kicking Horse Coffee's, The Cafe, you won't want to leave. The shopping in Invermere is awesome. You will find tons of local and Canadian art, boutique clothing, great shoes and mountain inspired knickknacks.

Saying all this our only caution is that our home is so comfortable and offers so much sometimes it's hard to leave! Be sure to get out there and take it all in!

We decided to build our dream vacation home in Panorama because it offers everything we would want on a vacation. It has a special place in our hearts and we think it will capture a place in yours too.
