About Greg Bratton

I started skiing at Fernie in 1967 at the age of 6 years when the hill had just two T-bars. My wife and I have owned this unit since 1999. In between our twice per month weekend ski visits the unit is available for rentals.

We come down the odd summer weekend to golf (one day in Cranbrook and one day at Fernie) so the unit is available pretty much all summer.

Greg Bratton purchased this condo in 1999

Why Greg Bratton chose Fernie

Might have something to do with 875 cm of snow per year and the abundance of steep fall lines. The view of Skydive/Stag Leap/Decline was the closer.

This is a gorgeous setting with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Greg’s condo regularly over the past 5 years. The suite has everything you need for a comfortable stay. You can text/phone Greg with any questions or concerns and he is quick to solve any issues. We enjoy the hot tub and hiking in the area. Highly recommend!

Cozy and cute!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and quite place. Love the condiment cupboard and espresso machine. Very close to small market place and local hill restaurants. Only minor down side was that there was no air conditioning for the summer.

We will defiantly be back!

Mountain Escape

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had stayed here with my dog, and were very surprised upon arrival that it was a pet-friendly unit as it was extremely well-kept, and maintained. The unit is also very spacious with a beautiful mountain view, as well as has a well-stocked kitchen. Greg was very accommodating, and I would highly recommend this rental as it is close to town, but still offers that mountain 'getaway.'

Amazing mountain view

  • 5 of 5

The condo (and lock off) was perfect for our family. Some of us went skiing and the rest of us relaxed in condo or went to town to enjoy the shopping.

Great home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5

First time in a VRBO & it was excellent. The unit was spotless, spacious and comfortable; it had everything we needed for our 5-night stay and more. The kitchen in particular was well-appointed with a generous (and much-appreciated) "community cupboard."

The unit is a short walk to the lifts, and access to a ski locker on the hill meant we didn't have to schlep gear back and forth making our days skiing convenient & enjoyable. Greg was super-responsive and helpful when I sent messages to the website; he even met us at check-in which indicated to me cares about his property and the comfort of his guests.

Thank you Greg!
