About the property

Chalet, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10 in proper beds))

(N.B. If you get a VRBO "Instant Quote" that gives you a quote of "$" then this is in US dollars; please refer to our rates in the Rates section, where you can select C$ from the drop down list).

Spacious yet cosy and comfortable, Snow Lake House is only a six minute warm-up walk from the ski base area (with a ski locker at the Day Lodge). Over 3600 square feet of flexible accommodation with great amenities including an eight person hot tub, 8' pool table, TV room and large dining area. (Floor-plans are available by email).

All 10 guests can be accommodated in proper beds in the 5 bedrooms.

After a long day on the slopes there is nothing better than to climb into the hot-tub and take in the spectacular views of Lizard and Currie Bowls.

Alternatively head downstairs and have a game of pool, or watch your favourite Blu-ray or dvd movies on the 46 inch TV. Or perhaps you would prefer to just play your iTunes music by streaming it wirelessly from your device into the stereo and enjoy the company of friends and family in the spacious living areas.

There are five bedrooms arranged as follows:

Bedroom 1 - upstairs, comprising queen bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, fitted wardrobe, views of ski hill.

Bedroom 2 - upstairs, comprising queen bed, ensuite bathroom with bath and separate shower, fitted wardrobe, views of ski hill.

Bedroom 3 - upstairs, comprising queen bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, fitted wardrobe, balcony with views across valley.

Bedroom 4 - downstairs, comprising double bed with a single above (so either a couple or two singles), sharing a separate bathroom with bedroom 5;

Bedroom 5 - two single beds.

Payment accepted in Canadian Dollars, US Dollars, or British Pounds - ask for revised quotes.

Sorry, but no pets allowed and no smoking. We do not rent to vacationing students or groups of singles under the age of 27. The bedrooms are arranged to suit couples or families or mixed groups of couples and singles, and so the house is not suited to large groups of singles. Hence no bachelor / stag / bachelorette / stagette / hen parties.

About Mike

Anna & Mike spent a long time looking for their ideal mountain retreat, and immediately felt at home in Snow Lake House. Zoom-in on the map to see how close the house is to the ski base!

Mike purchased this house in 2009

Why Mike chose British Columbia Rockies

We wanted a house on a great ski hill but we also wanted a real community town to go with it. It also needed to be within three hours drive of Calgary for friends and family. We found that Fernie ticked all the boxes for us in 2009, and we love it even more today.

What makes this house unique

It is only a short warm-up walk to the ski base area, about 6 minutes (i.e. closer than some of the car-parks - zoom-in on the map to compare).

We also have a ski locker at the Day Lodge for storing skis, so you do not need to carry them and can carry your ski boots and store your shoes.

The views are even more spectacular in the summer, as the garden leads down to the lake with the mountains dominating the skyline above.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Outstanding Large Rental

  • 5 of 5

Snow Lake House is such a perfect getaway for a large family. Not many rentals have 5 bedrooms and our family needs this space. In addition, there are 2 living spaces so there can be movie watching in one space and socializing in the other. The proximity to the lifts is a real bonus and the view of the runs from the back of the house is outstanding! The place is perfect for a big family or even two families to share. Thank you Mike and Anna for sharing your chalet!

Great Vacation Rental for Family Time

  • 5 of 5

We were three small families with 8 total guests in the house and another family of 5 staying at the Griz Inn. The house was very clean, warm, and welcoming. Mike and Anna were there to greet us and show us around. The house has a lot of space and an excellent front entrance for a lot of ski gear. Three rooms upstairs, each with their own bathrooms was a wonderful perk to have. The two rooms downstairs were great for the kids share and hang out playing pool. The hot tub was awesome after the days of skiing. We used this house as the meal headquarters for all 4 families and it was equipped with everything we needed. The locker on the hill was great to store skis and poles, so we would walk up and back each day either in our boots or carrying them. This is a great rental - we have already booked our next trip here.

Snow Lake House, Fernie

  • 4 of 5

The house was as it was on website, owners met us earlier than expected and showed us the house and how it all worked and gave us contact details in emergency. Location is perfect, only a 5 minute walk to the bottom of the ski lifts.

The house was great to stay in, the entry areas were large enough to carry all our kit, the kitchen was well equipped with the cooking extras which made it so much easier to cook for large groups. The Christmas tree was a great touch, the kids loved it.

The 3 en-suite bedrooms upstairs were well sized and decorated, and the 2 bedrooms downstairs were great for the kids with shared bathroom, TV room and pool table. Hot tub was fantastic after a full day out on the mountain. What a view from the kitchen and the hot tub.

The double garage has ample room and the doors high enough for SUV's with roof boxes. The locker up on the resort is a hit as we could leave some kit up there. The key-code entry is a fantastic idea as no need to remember who has the key. The laundry was put to good use and all functional. All in all, a fantastic house and gave us the holiday we were looking for.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this house several times and would strongly recommend it. This time there were only 3 of us, but there have been as many as 7 in the past. We use the house as a headquarters for fly fishing activities. The house is well maintained and stocked. It is always impeccably clean. The hot tub and pool table are nice touches after a long day fishing. This trip we had three moose in the pond behind the house most evenings. It was a nice touch.

Great house. Great location. Great hosts.

Perfect Multi Family Home

  • 5 of 5

The Snow lake house was a perfect choice, we were two families with a total of 9 people. Three floor house allowed a lot of space to have time to yourself or be in the common areas with others. The younger 4 stayed in the rooms in the basement, the adults and 17 teen year old niece stayed in the 3 bedrooms up stairs each bedroom had its own eusuite which worked out very well. After a good day of skiing or first thing in the morning the view of the back deck or from the Kitchen is second to none 80% of the Fernie ski hill can be seen from the back of this location. The hot tub was also a great feature for soaking some sore mussels and on the clear evenings the star gazing was impressive, you could also watch the groomers up on the mountain getting the hill ready for the next day. The house is well equipped with all the necessities for cooking to board games the pool table was a hit with the boys and the large fridge and freezer accommodated all our food for our 6 night stay as we ate breakfast lunch and supper at the house. The locker on the ski hill was also a welcomed part of the house which allowed a person to leave skis and pole on the hill and not have to pack them back and forth from the house. The Fernie on hill village has all the little thing you may need from a small liquor / convenience store to restaurants and lounges all within walking distance of the Snow Lake House. Mike and Anna were great to deal with and met us when we checked into the house and went through the particulars and answered any questions we had. The lines of communication were always open for our whole stay if we had any questions.

Thanks for the great stay.

Snow Lake House - Fernie

  • 5 of 5

We're a group of guys that do an annual ski trip every year during the last week of February and this year's destination was Fernie, BC. Most of us are in our 50's and are fortunate enough to enjoy the finer things in life including nice accommodation when we do these trips. Snow Lake House did not disappoint!! Mike and Anna's chalet was spotless when we arrived. The chalet is very spacious and nicely furnished. The kitchen was extraordinarily well equipped (yes some of us guys cook!). It was an easy, short walk to and from the base of the mountain. All in all we had a great stay. I'd highly recommend Snow Lake House for families or small groups considering a visit to the Fernie area.
