About The Owner

We are a family of six, and have been dreaming of owning a property at this awesome hill, for many years. We are from England, but moved to Canada in 2001 and have never looked back. We first visited Kicking horse mountain, in the summer of 2001 when it was in its infancy, but immediately fell in love with the ski hill, surrounding area, incredible views from the top of the mountain the awesome 'Eagles eye restaurant' at the top of the mountain - and of course the projected plans for the hill, which are still being realized.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Hi Melanie,

We had a great long weekend up at your beautiful cabin! Thank you sooo much for having us, as the time was well enjoyed. Two of my party were fortunate enough to see a momma black bear with her cubs.

.......your cabin was more than we could have imagined and we all thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend!

Thank you,

Great House and location!

Stayed hear while on a golf trip with friends. The house accommodated seven men really easily. The golf course is reasonably close. Owners were very accommodating. I would definitely rent this place again.

Beautiful home at a great ski hill!

  • 5 of 5

Our large group had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house. The owner was very helpful and easy to reach with questions. The home had plenty of space for our large group, including lots of parking. The hot tub is perfect after a ski day. The kitchen even has some quality cookware! It's a a 2 minute ski down to the gondola. We would happily stay here again!

Perfect ski- in/ski-out cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this place justice. There is tons of space and beds. Added to that you can ski right to the front door. You can either do a very short walk to a cat track that takes you to the lodge for the ski out or you can just ski down the road to another track that also takes you to the main lodge. The place was set up with everything you need including a nice big hot tub to sooth your legs after a long day of boarding/skiing. It's beautiful inside and has lots of fun decor. Mel is a great host, she's friendly and prompt and made sure we had everything we needed. I will 100% stay here again next time we go to kicking horse. PS- we also had 15-20 cm of powder on the last day as a nice send off :)

Beautiful space for our whole party!

  • 4 of 5

We are a group of 4 families with kids who were happy to find a gorgeous house on the hill that could accommodate us all. The kids were happy to hang out downstairs while the adults could enjoy the coziness of the fireplace in the main floor. The kids enjoyed playing in the snow banks while the rest enjoyed the hot tub. Mel and her husband eres available for questions at any time and took care of any concerns immediately.

It was. I've to be able to transfer our damage deposit by online banking; and it was returned promptly and efficiently.

Love the proximity to the hill, a short walk down the street to the cat track and pop the skis on for a quick ride to the gondola.

Perfect place for a group of friends looking for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

Mel was really sweet, and responded really quick to any inquiries we had. We were a group of students on reading break and looking for a mini vacation out in the mountains. We stayed for 2 nights, and it was perfect. The house was very clean and spacious. The house made us feel like we were at home, it had everything we could ask for (hot tub, TV, video games, etc). Its a really great location for anyone looking to ski or snowboard because we were able to ski in, and out. It was awesome. We had a great time, we will definitely be back! Thanks Mel!
