"A half dozen of my friends and I get together every year for a week of skiing. We change resorts almost every year and this year, we decided on Fernie. We often get condo style accommodations but Snow Lake House (SLH) looked like a perfect fit to have us all in one place. Easy walk (or drive, if you want) to the hill, hot tub, 5 bedrooms...
Mike and Anna have just completed a great reno that adds a beautiful stone and cedar facade and balcony to the front of the house along with a great entrance hallway. The front of the home is visually miles ahead of what appears on the VRBO pictures (as of Feb 2015). All three upstairs bathrooms have obviously been recently upgraded. Beautiful job.
The hot tub, kitchen and dining room and two bedrooms look out over Snow Lake (not really a "lake", but bigger than a pond) toward the ski hill. With not-so-great ski conditions this year, it wasn't always the view we wanted to see, but I can imagine that waking up on on a pow day and looking at fresh snow on the trees would be inspiring. Probably pretty nice in the summer, too!
The living areas of the house are great. Very large and utile kitchen, big dining room (sat 14 when we had guests for dinner), and a comfortable living room with fire place on the main level and furnished rec room in the basement with its own TV and a pool table. No keys to lose... Mike had coded locks for all the doors and changed them (and the ski locker combination) to match my cell phone, so we were comfortable that nobody else had the numbers... not that it really mattered; I don't think there is a high crime rate here. The ski locker on the hill was great and held, realistically, 3 pairs of skis... 4 if you packed it carefully. With a rental pair and someone in for a tune every night, we didn't have to carry skis back and forth, but it wouldn't have been a problem anyway due to proximity.
The hot tub was freshly changed for our arrival. Mike had a service come in every couple of days to make sure it stayed that way. It was used every day.
Snow Lake House is obviously a well loved and maintained home. I would recommend it to families and guys and/or girls getaway groups anytime. Everyone in my group thought it was an excellent choice! When we get back to Fernie, Snow Lake House will be our first choice."

"What a beautiful house complete with all that you could dream of for a great getaway: full kitchen with all the little extras cooks truly appreciate; plenty of room and light for everyone to enjoy; a tasteful decor with exotic accents surely like none other in the area; an outside fire pit and hot tub we used and re-used; and thoughtful owners that really went the extra mile to make our stay both delightful and memorable. Kids did not want to leave, nor did the adults!"

"Our group of ten fishermen have stayed at Tightlines Lodge for the past several years. The accommodations are very good. Upstairs is the master bedroom with king bed and futon. I've slept on the futon for the last three years and it's very comfortable. The room also has a shower, sink and toilet. The hot tub is on the deck outside. The main level has a wraparound deck, big barbecue, dining room that seats eight, living room, breakfast nook with seating for four and a full kitchen. It's quite well equipped as far as pots, pans, plates, cups, glasses and utensils are concerned. There is also a bathroom off the kitchen (sink and toilet) that is available to the people in the lodge before the fly shop opens and after the fly shop (which is in the same building) closes. Downstairs is a game room, four bedrooms that sleep 6-7 people, a 3/4 bath plus washer and dryer. When you get up in the morning, walk out on the back deck and look up at the "Three Sister " that tower in front of you, you'd think you had died and gone to heaven.
Gord, the owner of the facility is a pleasure to deal with. He does everything possible to make sure you have a pleasant stay. He went above and beyond to help us last week (August 18-22, 2015). We had arranged four shuttles for our boats on Thursday and after we had put the boats in and headed down the Elk someone let the air out of two tires on every vehicle at the access site. Gord and his shuttle crew went above and beyond to help us. He could have left us to find our own means to solve our dilemma. Instead they got a compressor and went to work inflating tires on a total of 16 vehicles at three different access sites on the river. What could have been a very long day for us turned out instead to be a very long day for his shuttle crew. Their efforts were greatly appreciated. All of us would highly recommend this Lodge to anyone."

"Kris met us when we arrived and told us everything we needed to know about the place and things to do around Fernie. The suite was very nice and in a great location. We would definitely recommend it and hope to return again sometime soon!"
