Kicking Horse Mountain Resort house description

LOCATION:

Kicking Horse is located 3 hours west of Calgary International Airport. The house is located 3 houses away from the ski path. It's so close, our two year old did it.

We built our ski-in ski-out chalet 6 years ago to meet the needs of our young family.

Three large bedrooms are situated on the top floor of the house.

The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, amazing views of the Rocky & Selkirk Mountains, King bed, plus an extra long twin bed and a full size baby crib. There is a walk-in closet, and en-suite bathroom with an extra deep soaker tub/shower & heated Travertine tiles.

The second bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, spectacular views of the ski hill and local peak 'Clam Shell', king bed or two extra long twin beds and an additional extra long twin bed (King + Twin or 3 Twins).

The third bedroom is cozy with two XL twin beds that can also be made as a king.

There is a second shared bathroom on the top floor.

The main-floor has the main entry, the kitchen, dining room, living room, bathroom, laundry room and garage.

The kitchen has leathered granite counter tops, stainless appliances, breakfast bar and heated travertine floors. The kitchen is well stocked and has place settings for 16 people.

The dining room has a table that will easily accommodate 10 people and opens on to the large deck through French Doors.

The living room has hand scraped hardwood floors, Fir Timberframe accents, propane fireplace, queen hide-a-bed sofa, and a single day-bed with views of the Rocky & Selkirk Mountains.

The main-floor full bathroom has heated travertine floors and a two person shower, perfect for showering off for the hot tub.

The laundry room has extra large capacity washer and dryer and access to the hot tub. Fluff your towel on the way to the hot tub.

The walk-out ground floor has the 4th bedroom, media area, and foos ball table.

The bedroom has a queen bed and a built-in extra long twin bunk bed. The top bunk has a fun entrance through a hole in the wall from the media area. Kids love it!

The bathroom has a body jet shower and heated travertine floors.

The media area has a queen hide-a-bed sofa to accommodate extra guests in their own space. There is a sitting area with 2 lounge chairs by the foos ball table for those waiting their turn.

The walk-out ground floor level has a separate entry & closet area, making it perfect when 2 families share the house. Each family can have a floor to themselves and only share the kitchen living area.

There is lots of space to store ski jackets, boots, etc. The garage has designated ski storage and boot drying area.

We take pride in our resort house. Since we use it, it is well equipped and maintained.

We have what you need to make life traveling with kids easy! We have full crib plus a separate pack-and-play with fitted sheets and extra cozy blankets. Books and toys for all ages of kids. A booster seat that attaches onto the dining room chair. Plastic cups. Sound proofing between the floors so you can put the kids to bed and still enjoy some adult time with out disturbing their sleep.


Keywords: Family friendly vacation home. Not a noisy condo. Easily accommodates 2 families. 3 bedrooms on top floor.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2008

                              About the owner: We lived in the KHMR/Goden area for 15 years and built our house at the resort 6 years ago. We are avid outdoors people that enjoy skiing/ snowboarding at the Kicking Horse Resort, ski touring and ice climbing in the local area. In the summer it's mountain biking, hiking, and cycling and swimming at Cedar Lake. The area offers amazing rivers for rafting and kayaking and winter or summer, it is rarely crowded (especially mid-week).

                              Why the Owner Chose Kicking Horse Mountain Resort:
                              We used to own a helicopter access ski-touring lodge and loved waking up in the mountains every morning and skiing from our front door. With a ski resort home, we still wake up and ski out from the front door. It's tough to beat morning coffee watching the sun peak over the mountains, or evening sunsets with your favourite beverage in the hot tub.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              We have one of the best views from our hot tub in the entire Resort! It is on the main level deck with amazing views of both the Rocky and Selkirk Mountain Ranges. (Most hot tubs are on concrete pads on the ground which minimizes the views). We have everything you need to make the trip easier when traveling with small kids! We have a pack and play, booster seat, plastic cups, kids books, toys (LEGO, Duplo, Cook Set, Cars, Truck, Sit upon Car for outside, crazy carpets, etc)
