Imagine a beautiful log home set in the middle of the Rocky Mountain wilderness where you can sit and relax on the large deck and hear the creek in the distance, get lost in the majestic mountain views. Have a private picnic along beautiful Packsaddle creek, which flows through the property or pack a lunch and take a hike along the Packsaddle Creek Loop Trail that begins right on the property. Now imagine that this quiet log home is just a 6 minute drive to the village of Valemount BC with all the great activities it has to offer, 35 minutes to Mount Robson Provincial Park with its fantastic views of Mount Robson, the highest peak in the Rockies and the beautiful Berg Lake trail with its Valley of a Thousand Falls and only 124 Km from world renowned Jasper National Park. This is Packsaddle Creek Lodge/ Vacation home. No other place gives you the best of both worlds the way that Packsaddle Creek Lodge/Vacation home can.

The rates when split between a group of four to eight people are as reasonable or better than that of renting a hotel room, especially when you take into account the ability to bring your own food, prepare your favorite meals and share stories of your days adventures around the cozy fireplace before turning into your own comfortable queen sized bed for the night.


Sledders Welcome! We are focusing on groups of six to eight people. Packsaddle Creek vacation home is a great location for a family getaway or a group retreat and can accommodate eight individuals comfortably each with there own queen sized bed or up to eight couples. Each bedroom features two queen sized beds. The stone fireplace creates a cozy atmosphere. Being located in the centre of its own 160 acre parcel of land at the head of Kinbasket lake/Reservoir, insures your privacy, security and relaxation.

We also cater to Companies or Contractors with crews that work in the Valemount area for a month or two at a time and need a place to call home. We can provide High Speed Wireless Internet for your employees upon request. Your employees will also enjoy phone service with free long distance calling anywhere in North America.

Packsaddle Creek Lodge is a stand alone vacation home. Once you book in you are on your own to enjoy the privacy security and comfort of the beautiful surroundings. Use the full kitchen to cook your own meals the way you like them or drive into Valemount and enjoy dining out at one of the fine restraunts. All other activities can be arranged through the Valemount visitor centre.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Mailing Address: #416-1500 McDonald Ave., Fernie, BC, V0B 1M1 Hello, Packsaddle Creek Lodge is located in Valemount BC and is a Fully Furnished, Stand Alone Vacation Home that Offers Prime Accommodations to Sledders, families and group retreats. The business was started in January 2009 and it's mission is to provide secure, private, comfortable, accommodation to sledding groups, retreats and families visiting the Valemount area. We recognized a need for accommodations for groups and families visiting the Valemount area where after a day of Rocky Mountain adventures they could come back to a comfortable home rather than a small hotel room. The rates when split between a group of four to eight people are as reasonable or better than that of renting a hotel room, especially when you take into account the ability to bring your own food, prepare your own meals and share stories of your days adventures around the cozy fireplace before turning into your own comfortable queen sized bed for the night. If you have any questions, would be interested in more information or would be willing to add this info to your website please call. Thank you and enjoy your visit to Beautiful British Columbia. Sincerely, Packsaddle Creek Lodge

Why the Owner Chose Valemount:
I transferred to Valemount BC in 1994 with my work. In 1996 I purchased 160 acres and had my dream home built by a local custom log home builder. My intention was to retire in this beautiful location. Unfortunately I was transferred from Valemount with my work. My business partner and I recognized a need for accommodations for groups and families visiting the Valemount area where after a day of Rocky Mountain adventures they could come back to a comfortable home rather than a small hotel room. So in 2009 we completely furnished the home from top to bottom with eight comfortable queen beds and all the amenities a person needs to feel like they are at home away from home. It has given us the opportunity to share this little piece of heaven with all of our wonderful guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy and Security are the two things that you will have when staying at Packsaddle Creek lodge since it is located in the centre of its own 160 acre parcel of land at the end of a long gated driveway. No constant vehicle traffic noises, just the sounds of the birds and Packsaddle Creek flowing by in the distance. Packsaddle Creek Lodge is a great place to base yourself while undertaking all of the great activities offered through the various tourist operators based out of Valemount, which is only a short 10 km away. Valemount, BC, is a friendly Village of approximately 1200 people nestled between the Rockies, Monashee and Premier mountain ranges. The wonderful mountainous terrain and deep powder snow conditions makes Valemount a destination spot for many snowmobile enthusiasts as well as heli skiers from around the world. Valemount is also the final destination for the longest salmon run in BC. Chinook salmon travel approximately 800 kilometers up the mighty Fraser river to reach their final destination near Valemount and can be observed from August through beginning of September in Swift creek, which flows through the Village of Valemount. Starratt Marsh Bird Sanctuary at the south end of the Village has wonderful hiking trails, canoeing opportunities and of course bird watching platforms for the bird watching enthusiast in your group. Kinbasket lake/Reservoir, is located just south of Valemount and has a marina approximately 26 km south of the village where you can launch your boat and take advantage of the wonderful fishing and sight seeing opportunities this beautiful lake/reservoir, has to offer. Or contact one of the local rafting companies and take a white water adventure or slow drift on the mighty Fraser River. Valemount also has a wonderful museum, make sure that you drop in for a visit and learn the history of this beautiful valley.
