Located in the hamlet of Brule, a one hour drive to the Jasper townsite and close to many of the Jasper area sights and outdoor activities, this house is perfect for those wanting to bask in the quiet serene nature of the mountains, for hikers, skiers and thrill seekers. The location has it all. Everything was made new 5 years ago. The main floor is fully renovated and there are two extra bedrooms downstairs in the partially renovated basement. It has every modern convenience, and can sleep up to 6 people comfortably. Large windows to maximize the view of the mountains and the park across the street and as an added bonus the filtered water comes right off the mountain with a taste that can't compare. Completing the convenience found on the inside of the house are 3 sitting areas on the outside. A large deck on the back, a covered patio on the side, and a veranda on the front complete the experience. For those that want to stay connected, the house includes 3 large TVs, two with satellite.
A beautifully renovated 4 bed house just 900 m from Jasper National Park.

Excellent host with easy access to property
Cozy In Jasper
Cozy, quiet and clean. After a day of hiking in Jasper N.P., getting away from the crowds to The Burle Home was just what the doctor ordered.
Very well stocked and very comfortable. A most very enjoyable stay.
Nice stay in Brule

Brule is a historic hamlet with 52 residences and many amenities. There's a community league area with a hall, ball diamonds, picnic areas, a hockey rink, fire pits and a play ground. It even has it own volunteer fire department!
The town is located just a couple of minutes from the Athabasca River, Brule Lake and the famous Brule Sand Dunes. We are surrounded by trees and an abundance of wildlife, such as elk, deer, moose, cougars, bears, foxes, wolves, coyotes, and many other small varieties. There are extensive birds varieties too numerous to list, but who serenade us every morning in the warmer months. A little farther away, around 20 minutes, is the town of Hinton with enough shops and services to ensure that you are never without supplies. 15 minutes away are 5 lakes that offer boating, kayaking and fishing. There are several horse adventure companies also just minutes away, as well as rafting adventures. An amazing adventure also awaits you at Ogre Canyon, a 4 km hike at the base of Jasper National Park.
A short drive takes you to Jasper National Park gate. The park has more things to do than can be included in this narrative, but examples include skiing at Marmot Basin, some of the best cross country skiing land in the world, Miette Hot Springs, world renowned Jasper Park Lodge golf course, Athabasca Falls and of course the town of Jasper itself. Surrounded by numerous mountain fed lakes and mountains, the town of Jasper is the jewel of the Canadian Rockies. Considerable effort has gone into ensuring that Jasper Town retains its charm, with restrictions on commercialization and overbuilding. This results in an experience that is consistent with its natural surroundings. The drive to Jasper often sees mountain goats. elk, moose, and bears like the ones on the pictures
