"We stayed at this property over the May long weekend and had a wonderful time. The pictures don't do justice to this property that is beautifully located right by the river and has wonderful mountain views. Loved the cleanliness and how well stocked everything was. We were 6 adults, one toddler and a baby and the property was big enough to accommodate all of us comfortably."

"A great condo! Very clean, well stocked and comfortable!! Lots of space for a family with kids - room to spread out after a day on the hill. Conveniently located close to the Elk Chair and the Mighty Moose. Kids and adults loved the hot tub! Can't say enough good things about this condo! We loved it!! We plan to come back…."

"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."
