Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Enjoy unobstructed panoramic views of the majestic Monashee Mountains from nearly every room in this luxury slopeside chalet. Conveniently located in Rock Ridge Estates right on the Woodcutter ski run and just 200 yards from Big White Village, the home boasts 4 bedrooms in 2200 square feet. Built in the Arts and Crafts style with exquisite attention to detail and impeccably decorated by Treehouse Designs, this is truly the most beautiful property available on the mountain today.

You will be enchanted by the gourmet kitchen, the 200-year-old wood floors, the hand-pounded iron railings and the sumptuous bed linens. The estate offers more than enough room for 10 adults to sleep, eat and play in ultra comfort and style. And the location is -- quite simply impossible to beat: just steps from the village with a ski path literally to your door. And did we mention the views?

Further Details

'This is definitely one of the nicest homes on the mountain. This house is amazing. Jennifer Kiefer and the property manager took care of every detail. If I ever go back there is no place I would rather stay.'

- Conrad Notton, Seattle, WA

'This house is faultless. We really enjoyed our stay here. There was more than enough room for our two families. The slopes are right out the back door and you can literally ski off the run up to the back step. And the view of the sunrise from the breakfast table on a clear day is gorgeous. Next time we go to Big White we won't hesitate to contact the Kiefers, who were so incredibly helpful with all the arrival details and resort information, so we can stay in their fabulous home again.'

The property is gorgeous but it didn't suit our needs

  • 3 of 5

The internet stopped working after day 1. With a big group of 10 people with everyone hooked to their devices this is a big negative for us. The care taker said that it connected and we all agree that when we tried to connect our devices it always says that it is connected but it actually never worked. We offered to call the Internet provider on behalf of the owners but we need to have account number which was never provided to us.

The house is beautiful and you can see deers passing by in the morning. But if anyone is travelling during summer we really need fans for the top floor . Basement is fine. It was 32 degrees one evening and if you open the windows that don't have the net you will be swarmed by flies. The house is stocked well.

When we read about big white during summer the web pages talked about few interesting things to do, but in reality it is very quiet and u hardly see anyone around here and the only store don't even stock basic amenities . For anything you need, you have to go back to Kelowna .

Overall we might comeback during winter if there is a guarantee for Internet !!!

Owner's Response: Telus unfortunately had an outage while these guests were there and given the short length of their stay we were not able to get it resolved before they left. I am surprised that they gave us a negative review because I thought we handled the situation quite well. We ended up discounting their stay by 40% even though it was not our fault. Usually our summer renters (Big White is a winter destination) are planning on being in the area for a particular event. Unfortunately these renters did not realize that there wasn't much going on there in the summer time and perhaps thought it was more of a four seasons resort like Whistler. I will be more careful in the future to offer summer rentals only to people who know what summers at Big White are like.

Great Space and Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

We had a full house with three families. There was plenty of space for all and great beds for everyone!!! We loved the ski storage area. It worked perfect and had tons of space. The location to everything was perfect. Especially ski school for the little ones.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a family getaway to celebrate my Dad's Retirement. It accommodated us all beautifully (8 adults, 3 kids). We absolutely loved that it had 2 master bedrooms with king size beds, a rare feature! The bunks were comfy (even for adults) and the linens were cozy. One master is on the third floor with the set of twins down the hall, and the other master along with the bunk room is on the ground floor. The main floor with kitchen and living room is in between.

The place is well kept (oven needed a clean though) and we had everything we needed. Both the owner and property manager were very nice to deal with. The location is in close proximity to the village and it is a true ski in ski out and easily accessible to any chair & run you want.

We've done several VRBO rentals at Big White this year and this property had by far the easiest check out instructions! It made our departure so relaxing; unlike a few others we've rented this year. Nothing worse than a long list of things to before leaving! We had time so we did more than asked but it was nice to not have a lot of pressure to cleanup behind yourselves.

We were very very comfortable will be back again next year!

Great Location, Beautiful Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We have a group who go on an annual snowboarding trip and this will be our spot from now on. The location is a 5 minute walk from the village for nightlife, and it is right on the slopes for skiing or boarding. We were very pleased with the ample amount of towels and toiletries there for our use. The house is clean and well appointed. We will definitely be back.

The best house at Big White.... shhhh don't tell anyone, it's a secret :-)

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying thank you for letting us stay in this awesome house. We loved it and will happily recommend it to all our friends. It was perfect. Waking up to that amazing view is something that unless you do it, is impossible to describe. Every night we enjoyed the spa pool. Good for recovering the tired legs from a full day on the slopes. We would come home each day for lunch, turn the fire on and defrost for half an hour and scoff any leftovers from last nights dinner. Saved so much money by self catering and the kids could safely come and go as they pleased. We were two families with a total of eight. The way the house is set up there was more than enough room for everyone and the kids could enjoy the entertainment downstairs and not get in any ones way. The extra things you had in the house (i.e. tissues, shampoo etc) really made things easy and added that extra touch that we have not always had while renting properties. We have stayed in a lot of these types of houses (book a bach, -------- etc) and this house out did all of them. Looking around the hill we were convinced we had the best spot. Being able to wander out the back door and right onto the ski run totally spoilt us. And... pick up your beer from the village on the way home... balance with the ski poles and get right to the back door :-) But the short walk up the hill to the village was never a problem. We really enjoyed Big White and had the best bluebird days all week. We kind of have this rule that we don't go to the same place twice, but I think In a couple of years Big White will be on the list again and we would love to come back to your house. Highlights were.... watching the Kelowna Rockets, dog sledding, horse sleigh.... to name but a few.

Perfect chalet accommodation for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

It was a real treat to stay at the Rockridge. For two families, the set up was perfect and spacious and the hillside location amazing. So close to the village and fresh tracks out the lower access door! Would love to return one day.

Alison was prompt and helpful with answering questions, the chalet was clean & tidy and the beds were like sleeping on a cloud! Only wish we could have basked in the luxury of the steam shower.....don't have one of those at home!
