About Caroline Barde

Geologist and teacher with two grown children. We have led an active life, skiing, snowboarding and windsurfing and we LOVE Sun Peaks!

Caroline Barde purchased this Chalet in 1993

Why Caroline Barde chose Sunburst Estates

My husband and I met in Whistler. Years later we moved to the interior with our two children. We used to ski Sun Peaks in the early days when it was called Todd Mountain. We had witnessed the growth in Whistler so when Sun Peaks was beginning we knew we had to get in on it. That's why we have such a great ski in ski out property! We planned and built our dream log post and beam chalet and were lucky enough to get in on the first phase of Sun Peaks. The location of the chalet is second to none and we have had nothing but great times and wonderful memories in Sun Peaks. Renting has been amazing, people respect the chalet and it makes us feel good to know that our clients enjoy it as much as we do!

What makes this Chalet unique

Amazing ski in ski out location backing onto connector run. Awesome panoramic views with true mountain atmosphere. Fabulous log post and beam with an open plan. Summer is magical in Sun Peaks. Enjoy stunning views and watching wildlife grazing on the runs surrounding the chalet. Enjoy the barbeque on the front deck after a hike or mountain bike. The Kodiak Timber Lodge is just a short 7-10 minute walk to the village. You will not be disappointed!

                                                                    Great place at Sun Peaks for a family

                                                                    Elizabeth F.Vancouver

                                                                    Kodiak Timber Lodge is exactly as pictured, only better. Great house for a family to spread out - room for games, TV, meals, lounging. Lovely decor, beautiful linens, poofy duvets. The kitchen is really well equipped for cooks - everything we could ever need was at hand, and it's perfectly laid out for several people to work together or to gather around the island.

                                                                    The location is great - literally 20 steps up to the cruiser run that takes you down to the village lifts. Easy to return to via blue or green runs from either Sundance or Sunburst chairs. We could come back for lunch, watch the skiers on either side of the valley, then pop back out for a few more runs. We walked down to the village (10 minutes easy walk along trail), and never needed a car.

                                                                    Hot tub is big and well kept. Very much appreciated after a long day. Just a perfect place for a ski vacation. We'll try to be back soon.

Three couples (average age 70) found it a perfect place to ski together, prepare meals, soak in the glorious hot tub, and visit well into the evening. We particularly enjoyed how easy it was to ski in for a leisurely and private lunch together before we returned to the slopes. A+ for ambience, cleanliness, peace and quiet, great views. Bravo to you Bruno and Carol for offering such a great place to stay.

The Kodiak Timber lodge was very clean and the accommodations suited our family fine. Ski conditions were excellent (plenty of fresh powdery snow). Communication with owner (Carole) was excellent.

Beautiful views of Mt Morrisey. True ski in and ski out (really). Spacious living area and spacious kitchen. Carol and Bruno were so gracious and responsive! Love, love, love their home. The spacious mud room is also fantastic for staying warm / getting warm while taking gear on and off.
