'What I like about the chalet the most is that it has the feel of being a mountain dwelling. The windows make it very light and you almost feel as the sun rises that your sitting outside on the grassy slopes of the mountain' (The owner's comments).
The centre piece is the living room with high vaulted ceiling, two sided wood burning fireplace with views across the mountain and valley; an ideal place for entertaining. There is a well stocked modern kitchen, the central feature of which is a magnificent granite table; sit at the table,especially when the sun rises, and soak up the view through the large windows.
The property is efficiently heated by Geo Thermal with radiant heat on all floors.
Relax in the large private hot tub and enjoy the magnificent mountain scenery.Other superb amenities include the wet-dry Finnish sauna, satellite HD TV and Home Theatre, high speed internet including wi fi, telephone (local calls only), BBQ, Washer/Dryer.

About: I am a hard working 40 something who loves visiting Golden and Kicking Horse.

Why Kicking Horse Mountain Resort:
Kicking Horse is a fantastic ski resort. It is also a great place to stay in the summer for those who enjoy exploring the the great out doors or just chill.The Pioneer Retreat is also well located for visiting the National Parks. This part of Canada at Golden is very accessible for a British Visitor via Calgary.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What makes my property unique is that it has the feel of being a mountain dwelling.It is very light and airy; as the sun rises in the morning you feel at one with the mountain.
