About Kristine & Pierre Pelletier (Owners/Operators)
Pierre and Kristine are locals who continue to reside in Fernie. Kristine was born and raised in Fernie and Pierre originally hails from New Brunswick, but moved here almost 40 years ago. Both graduated from the very same high school that is now 901(including Kristine's mom!). As her family has been in Fernie for over 100 years, she can bring a wealth of knowledge about the town and provide recommendations and assistance if requested. Pierre and Kristine are hands-on owners of their condo, and take pride in managing and maintaining it to the highest standards.
Why Kristine & Pierre Pelletier (Owners/Operators) chose Fernie
We take pride in the fact that we own a piece of our town's history and a piece of our heritage, having had a long association with the old school. Both Pierre and Kristine graduated from this same school, as well as Kristine's mom and her 3 siblings. It's always fun to tell people that we are walking in the same halls that we did over 30 years ago (although it looks nothing like its former self!).
What makes this Condo unique
You will love the "feel" of the old building and especially our unit, which is partially located inside the old Bell Tower of the school! The original 1908 brick is prominently displayed throughout every room in our condo. The 19' high ceilings and 12' high windows will take you back in time to an era you can only imagine. Inside the Bell Tower, one can envision a person tugging on the thick rope, ringing the bell to call all the town's kids to school, which had grades from K-12. That old bell is still around and currently sits in the new high school on display in the main hall. The way the old is blended with the new will impress you. Everything you need is provided for a comfortable and worry-free stay. And if there's anything you need, Pierre and Kristine are available to help you any time, night or day.

Luxurious Digs! Fab Location!
We were 2 couples traveling to Fernie to experience some world class skiing as well as to soak up at least a few of the other amazing outdoor adventures this lovely city offers. This condo was the perfect home base for us - beautifully appointed with granite counters, gas stove, wine fridge, loads of space to spread out, and a location that is second to none. We did not want to be directly on the ski hill as not all of our 5 days were going to be ski days. The complex is only a little over a block away from the quaint town of Fernie, and other than to get to the hill, there is no need for wheels at all. There is even a shuttle to the hill if you don't want to bother with a car. Kristine, the owner, greeted us upon arriving and made us feel very welcome. She thoroughly explained all the condo nuances (how to operate the heat, appliances, T.V. remotes etc.) and provided us with good information on the general area, including some favourite eating spots. We were not at all disappointed. Not one bad meal, in fact all were great! Kristine's husband Peter was also very kind and accommodating - once having to let us in to the unit after a dinner out when all 4 of us assumed (incorrectly) that the other had the keys! He was there in a flash! In the underground, heated parking lot there is 1 spot assigned to the unit but loads of visitor parking underground as well, and the strata has no problem with additional renters using these stalls. All in all it was simply a wonderful getaway, and the perfect choice of accommodation in which to enjoy it! We highly recommend!
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave such an awesome review! Always enjoy hearing positive feedback and are so pleased you enjoyed the whole experience (including all 4 seasons of weather packed into 5 days!). We have to proudly agree that our condo really is "fab and luxurious" and in the best location to truly experience all Fernie has to offer. And we were more than happy to help out when you were stranded in the foyer without a key, lol. It was a pleasure having you as our guests so please come back and see us again real soon!
Fabulous Fernie Condo
Our visit to Canada came to the perfect end with four nights in Fernie, staying at this luxurious and modernly designed Condo. It offered three large bedrooms with en suites and comfortable beds with ample wardrobe space. The master bedroom has a bath as well as walk in shower.
The Condo’s open plan kitchen and lounge provides beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. There is ample assigned space for your ski equipment, but we found because the underground car park was heated, we were happy to leave our skis in the car. Should you want there are facilities at the Resort to leave your boots/skis there.
Downtown is packed with great shops, bars, variety of restaurants and two supermarkets. Fernie really offers it all.
Kristine was an exceptional host. We had a major baggage catastrophe with KLM which resulted in one of our bags missing for the majority of the holiday. Knowing this Kristine kindly offered to handover her phone number for the bag courier to contact her and ensured the bag was delivered into the condo which allowed us to go skiing rather than sitting around the condo. We cannot thank Kristine enough for helping us with this matter and allowed us to enjoy our holiday.
Thank you for having us Kristine, we had a wonderful time.
So happy to hear you made it back to England with your bags in tow! That really was a catastrophe for the first part of your holiday, but thankfully we got it all straightened out once you got to Fernie. And many thanks for taking the time to write such a positive and complimentary review! We're proud of our condo and enjoy having people from all over the world experience it along with our Fernie hospitality! Hope to cross paths again some day soon - the door's always open!
Our family were fortunate to find and book this beautiful, unique condo for a family ski trip the end of February 2018. The is truly a beautiful, high end unique condo. The large space allowed for each family to have their own large bedroom (3) with private bathrooms and the main living space and kitchen were large enough to accommodate meal time and evenings of relaxing and visiting as a family. From the moment I made the inquiry and throughout our stay Kristine responded almost immediately to any question or inquiry. It was like having our own personal travel guide!! We were thrilled to spend our last night in Fernie watching the “Griz days” parade and fireworks from our front steps!!! Our stay was perfect and as a result, our family has decided this will be an annual get together and this condo will be where we meet!!
Thank you so much for all the compliments and for taking the time to write this wonderful review! You really did hit a good week with all the Griz Day's activities, and with most events just outside our front door to boot! Definitely come back again and try out our summers too - they're epic! Hope to see you soon.
We really enjoyed our trip to this property. Beautiful decor, great location. Lots of room. Great communication with the owners. Thanks Kristine!
Thanks for taking the time to give us your positive feedback! I'm always happy to keep the lines of communication going so you can have a relaxing and worry-free experience when you arrive. I was also very proud to hear from the group that everything met your expectations, and then some. Hopefully we'll see you back this way again!
Spacious, great location, fabulous hosts
A group of friends spent a wonderful weekend skiing in Fernie. This condo was perfect; everyone had their own space including three full bathrooms and two heated underground parking spots. A block from the bus drop off/pick-up to hit the slopes and only 3 blocks from the town centre for all the apres-ski action, it was perfectly situated.
Kristine was a fabulous, knowledgeable and welcoming host. The condo had everything we needed for a relaxing stay.
My only very minor complaint was we ran out of hot water after everyone came back from a day of skiing so make sure folks are careful to not linger too long in the wonderful warm showers!
Thanks for the positive review! Yes, if the bathrooms are all being used with the hand-held and rain showers running at the same time, the hot water tank will tend to drain quicker just like at home, even though we have a larger tank than normal. I usually give a heads up to our larger groups but must have overlooked that when you checked in - apologies! But I'm glad it all worked out in the wash (pun intended, lol). It was a pleasure having you and hope to see you again!
Beautiful property located in the perfect spot downtown. Close to everything, in particular the grocery store and liquor store. We had a blast using the condo as our base of operations - both for skiers and non-skiers alike. Owner was so friendly and helpful, and the condo itself is quite spectacular. Can't recommend it enough.
It's always great to hear an awesome review from awesome guests! We can't argue that our condo is in the best location, and we do our utmost to make sure you have a stress-free stay so you can have a blast! We really enjoyed having you and hope you come again.
