About the property

This newly constucted log cabin is set on almost an acre of land, on serene Columbia Lake, and offers unparalleled privacy in a quiet residential neighbourhood.

With unobstructed mountain and lake views, you'll be able to watch the sunset over the lake from the covered deck, or enjoy a fire in the indoor or outdoor wood burning fireplace with friends and family. Located just 20 minutes from Fairmont Hot Springs, you'll enjoy all the area has to offer, in a quiet, natural setting. Worldclass skiing, hiking and golf are all within a 45 minute drive. Boat launch, day use area and beach are just a 10 minute walk away - or drive a little further down the road to enjoy Whiteswan Provincial Park, or Premier Lake. Prefer a more bustling atmosphere? Invermere is just 45 minutes away...with it's unique shopping and dining opportunities. With 3 bedrooms, sleeping for up to 11, and a full bathroom on every floor, there's room for everyone. Our kids love it here and yours will too: play structure, toys, sand play area, volleyball/badminton court and just good old exploring - it's the perfect place to unplug!

About Chris Beecroft

Jen, Chris and family purchased the home partially constructed and have been working on completing it over the last eight years. We live in the busy town of Banff and relish in our time away at the cabin. We enjoy it so much we wanted to share it with others and help pay for ongoing expenses.

Chris Beecroft purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Chris Beecroft chose British Columbia

We loved camping in the Invermere and Windermere Area but found the area to be a bit busy for us. A friend's parents own a place at Columbia Ridge Estates and we vacationed there with them. When we stumbled upon the area 7 years later we fell in love with the quiet location but appreciated that it was close enough to day trip to the bigger centres of Invermere, Kimberley, and Panorama.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with having the view of the lake from the front window and then the base of the mountain just out the other side of the property. The wildlife is abundant with Bighorn Sheep, Bald Eagles, Deer, Elk, Bears and even the aloof Cougar. The stars from the deck are amazing and the kids often camp out on the deck with their air mattresses.

Great location with beautiful warm lake

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time in Canal Flats. The house was well appointed and only a short walk to the lake. Lots of wildlife around and a couple of thunderstorms. The kitchen and layout of the place is great. The pullout bed downstairs is not comfortable so we slept on the floor. The bunk beds are great for kids.

Great place with an amazing veiw.

  • 4 of 5

The place was great and sitting on the deck with an amazing view of the lake, mountains and every afternoon the sheep and deer would come by for a visit was awesome. The family enjoyed a shuffle board tournament one evening in basement. The Fairmont area has lots of things to do and this was a great place to start and finish the day off and we all enjoyed the stay.

Peaceful and Relaxing Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Blue Mountain Hide-Away. It was everything we had hoped for on our family vacation. The kids loved the bunk beds and the play center. The view was outstanding. We enjoyed the rustic cabin feel while still enjoying all it's modern conveniences. We would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a peaceful escape.

Very nice stay at a very nice property

  • 4 of 5

Although set back a good distance from Lake Columbia, the property is in a beautiful setting with a lovely view of the lake and mountains. The home is very cozy and accommodating. There was plenty of wood for the fire, which is always a big plus for us. If you have more than a few guests - suggest bringing your own bath towels. We had to buy our own dishwasher detergent - but not a big deal. Overall - a lovely location and property for a relaxing getaway.
