Kicking Horse Mountain Resort chalet description

Situated in Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Columbia Mountain Lodge is a bright and stylish 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom mountain home neatly laid out over three floors that comfortably sleeps up to 10 guests. Half-house (up to 4 guests) rentals are available at Owner's discretion.

The lodge is complete with the features you would expect in a luxury chalet including open plan living, fully equipped kitchen, satellite TV, mp3/ipod station, high speed internet, internal and external wood burning fireplaces, BBQ, hot tub, ski room with boot warmers and heated double garage. Four out of the five bedrooms can be configured as kings or twin XL beds which makes this attractive home very flexible.

The lodge is only a short walk to the slopes and main gondola with ski in to the lodge in good snow conditions.

Enter this charming chalet at the basement level where there is a large coat and shoe closet. You will also find the first of two luxury en-suite master bedrooms with king/twin XL beds and DVD player, as well as a further bedroom with twin XLbeds, separate shower room and laundry room.

A wide staircase runs up the centre of the property from the entrance hall and brings you to the open plan main floor level with wood flooring. From here the dining area is straight ahead, the kitchen is to your left and the sunken living room is to the right. The stairs to the upper level carry on with large picture windows providing plenty of natural light up the stairwell.

The spacious fully equipped kitchen, with custom cabinets and granite work surfaces has all the amenities you would expect in a luxury home including range, oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, ice-maker, coffee maker and generous cooking utensils and table ware. There is a large granite surfaced central island which doubles as a breakfast bar and a separate comfy reading chair. There are French doors from the kitchen accessing on to the rear patio where seating is provided in the summer season.

The dining space, with ample seating, connects the kitchen to the lounge area and offers stunning panoramic views over the Columbia Valley.

The luxurious sunken living room features a wood burning fireplace, a vast sectional sofa, flat screen TV with satellite and DVD and an Ipod/MP3 dock. Guests can access the outdoor hot tub and fireplace through a side door leading to the rear patio.

There are three luxury bedrooms on the upper level: the second en-suite master bedroom with king/XL twin beds and stunning panoramic views, satellite TV and DVD player plus two further king/twin XL bedrooms and the family bathroom.

Outside, guests can soak in the 8 person hot tub in front of a wood burning fire place which is accessed from the living room or kitchen. There is nothing quite like relaxing in the hot tub watching the stars above: even better if there is light snowfall. There is also a BBQ which guests can use throughout the year.

Inside the heated double garage there is a dedicated area for ski/board storage with ski rack, heated boot warmers, benches and rubber matting. Access to this area is from both inside and outside the lodge.

The heated garage provides parking for 2 cars and there is parking on the drive for at a further 4 cars.

We live in a small village in an area of outstanding natural beauty known as 'the Cotswolds'. We live an outdoor life and have three horses, a dog and two chickens.

                          Why the Owner Chose Kicking Horse Mountain Resort:
                          I first came to KHMR in 2003 and it was love at first sight. That feeling led me to purchase a plot and build our dream home. We truly believe that KHMR is one of the best, if not the best, ski hills in the world and we are delighted to welcome you into our home and share it with you.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                          KHMR combines superb snow, world class skiing and stunning scenery. It is a heady cocktail that draws lovers of the mountains and the outdoors to it time and time again whatever the season.
