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 East Kootenay F

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 View!!!

  • 4 of 5

This place was great. Chris, the owner, was really responsive and answered any questions right away. The view of the lake was fantastic and the indoor/outdoor fire places were great to keep the chill off. Games room was a lot of fun and the kitchen was really well equipped.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this awesome house! When the water wasn't working, Chris was very quick to respond and help us out. The house was perfect for what we needed, with lots of beds, and a great kitchen. We spent a lot of time outside near the fire as well. House was clean, easy to access!

Warm and Luxurious

  • 5 of 5

Our family of sisters, daughters and nieces gathered from far and wide at this lovely log home to celebrate our oldest sisters retirement recently. It was so special to all comfortably gather under one roof, yet enough room to find spots to quietly chat and catch up with each other. The sun coming up in the morning over the lake and mountains was spectacular; the only thing that improved it was a blazing fire in the massive stone fireplace and a good cup of coffee. Every amenity was in place in the kitchen - it didn't lack anything. The owner was very accommodating as our plans and occupancy number was changing up until the very last minute. Thanks for being so flexible Chris! We had a wonderful time and would love to come back again another time. I highly recommend this VRBO.

Owner's Response: I am so glad to have been a small part of your enjoyable time. Dealing with people like yourself add an enjoyable extension to the renting world. When next sister retires call us again. Thank Chris and family
