About the Property

Chalet, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Looking for a large spacious house for a group or family reunion, then this is the place. With 5 bedrooms & 4.5 bathrooms, and 3 of the bathrooms are ensuite!!! Everyone has their own space.. The main floor is open plan with a spacious living room/dining area leading into a kitchen, breakfast room and then a cozy den with wood fireplace.
Patio doors lead out to a wrap around deck with BBQ and deck furniture and a 8 seater hot tub. Picture yourself soaking in the hot tub after a days skiing or golf watching the moon rise over the Rocky mountains, or the evening sun changing the peaks to golden red.
There is a 32’ flat screen TV & DVD player in the living room and another one in the den, WIFI internet is also available, and stereo with Ipod dock!
The house is located in the centre of Fairmont, a few hundred yards from Mountainside, Creekside & Riverside golf courses, and within a few minutes walk of the Mountainside Club house. A few minutes drive takes you to the famous hot pools and the local ski hill.

There is a separate self contained apartment in the basement of the house that is rented out long term to a single person, the entrance of this around the rear of the house.

Near to 7 other 18 hole golf courses, plus Windermere and Columbia lakes with beaches and boating amenities.
Fairmont resort and hot pools (and hot waterfall!), and Fairmont ski resort.
Mountainside Golf Clubhouse, with restaurants and bar, Farside bar & shops & supermarket in the immediate vicinity..

Six other ski resorts within 2 hours drive including Panarama, Kimberly, Fernie, Kicking Horse(great powder), Lake Louise, and Sunshine. Heli skiing and cat skiing are just 40 minutes away. Cross country skiing in The Banff-Kootenay National park is adjacent to us with a wide range of ski trails and biking/hiking trails. Great for wildlife viewing and bird spotting in the largest wetlands in western Canada.
A twitchers paradise!
Fishing abounds in the many local lakes and rivers.
