About Kelly Forbes
I am a strength and conditioning / player development coach for the San Antonio Spurs Since I'm not here as much as I would like I want my friends and family and other guests to enjoy this amazing area.
Kelly Forbes purchased this House in 2006
Why Kelly Forbes chose Columbia-Shuswap B
3 generations of my family grew up in Revy, so I basically grew up here even though I was raised in Calgary, I spent most summers and Christmas's with family and friends in the heart of Revelstoke. I purchased the property for the intent to continue to have a place where family and friends can come play and relax. You will love what the back country has to offer here.
What makes this House unique
Dirtbiking the sandflats in the spring and fall. Water activities on the lake in the summer. Some of my favorites. Stand Up Paddle boarding across the lake with my bike attached to my board. Directly across the lake are some of the best mountain biking trails in the world at Mt Macphearson and then paddle back. Pick your mountain adventure anytime of the year. Your only limits are your own creativity. Endless fun!

Great spot for a group get away with quick access to Revelstoke Ski Area.
A group of 7 of us rented the house for 4 nights for a ski touring and alpine skiing trip in the area. It was perfect with separate beds for 6 people (two guys in our group doubled up but you could have up to 10 in beds - although that would be crowded in the living space 6 - 8 would be very comfortable) with a very well stocked kitchen. In many rentals with larger groups dishes and pots and pans are often in short supply, not here. We also liked the fact that most of the essentials for cooking were there - some spices, a little olive oil, condiments that are non-perishable - we left some of the extras that we brought for the next renters and I think that replacing what you use and adding to the spices makes for a pleasant rental. There are also two fridges so you can bring precooked food and have space for it in the fridge or freezer.
It is very quiet out in Forbesville around 10 mins to Revelstoke proper 5 mins to ski hill so a very convenient spot and I would recommend this rental for groups and large families...
We had a blast at Kelly’s. The place was clean, well supplied, big enough for 2 families (7 people)
Great location, easy drive to the mountain, and lots of room to explore on the property. Would definitely come back.
Quiet spot, close to Revelstoke Mountain Resort
Stayed here with 8 friends and we really enjoyed the property. We were very comfortable with 8 people and had enough room without being crowded. The washer and dryer were handy to have and the hot tub was much needed after a few days on the hill. Would go back anytime if I was in the area. Kelly was very helpful and his home is stocked with dishes, board games and movies. Note that there is no wifi and 2 of the beds are pullout couches in the living area.
Great Weekend Away!
Kelly's place was a real gem in Revelstoke! Myself and 5 friends stayed there at the end of January and had a great time. The location was excellent in terms of being close to the ski hill (though about 15 minutes from downtown Revelstoke). The house had ample space for us all and the extras included (some dried-goods in the kitchen, lots of cookware, towels, etc.) were a great touch. Communication and arrangements made with Kelly were nice and simple, arrival and departure was a breeze. Would highly recommend this property for anyone travelling to Revelstoke!
I had rented this property for my daughters and grandchildren to stay at for a family wedding across the road from it. There are actually two dwellings on the property - the main house and the little loft cabin in back. We rented both and are so happy we did! My grandchildren loved the open space and beautiful yards to run around in, a great hot-tub on both decks and a large fire pit area for chilly evenings. The main house was well stocked and very homey - we loved the very personal wallpaper they have hung with all of their treasured family photos made into a wallpaper. Had the opportunity to meet the folks staying there (Kelly's parents) and they were very welcoming and friendly. Overall I would recommend this property for anyone wanting some peace and quiet away from town or city!
Rented the place for a guys weekend, and it was absolutely great. Perfect place to come back to after days on the mountain. Massive BBQ and TV, Hot tub, bonfire pit, plenty of indoor/outdoor games and a huge property. Very comfortable place to rent. Would definitely rent again!
secluded 20 acre spot 5 min from ski hill and 2 min from some of the best sledding in the world
