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 catered 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.

                  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.

                  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.
