About Karen

This property has a special place in my heart. My father grew up in the area - photos are displayed of his activities. I walked this acreage many times with him. The house has been built next door to my Mom's property as my get away. I live in Edmonton and work remotely as often as I can. I have chosen this location to be near my Mom and to enjoy time with her. I love to walk on the many paths on the property, fly fish in the Goat River, golf at the Creston Golf Course and ski at the many nearby resorts. I am happy to share my Mountain Retreat with you. Enjoy the special space I have created in nature. The house offers luxury, comfort, quiet and nature is only a breath of fresh air away.

Karen purchased this house in 2010

Why Karen chose Kootenay Lake

This property was created as a special space to entertain family and friends. All rooms were designed to offer my guests a relaxing, comfortable environment. I love this land and especially love the views, the sounds of nature and the many walking paths in the trees. I am sure you will too!!

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely stunning and great for large groups/families! The beds are super comfy and people are able to come together when they want and find some quiet time when they need it. The kitchen is a chef's dream and has every piece of equipment you could need! I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it!

A true winter wonderland for the Christmas holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this amazing mountain retreat with our family. Karen (owner) and Mark (property mgr) ensured everything was what we expected, and more! Family meals and activities were all easily accommodated with this top of the line kitchen, dining area, family rooms, fireplace, internet/TV's, bedrooms on 10 acre property. Very spacious with quality finishes. It was a true gem and it will generate many family memories. Snowshoeing and hiking was at the doorstep with more trails in the immediate vicinity. An outdoor rink at Lister Park is also within walking distance - next to the dairy where we bought our cheese. Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area and Mount Thompson provided beautiful trail areas for a long hike/snowshoe on our stay. What a gorgeous piece of heaven! We'll miss seeing the deer daily. Thanks a bunch.

WOW - I give it 6 stars...Rent this house with confidence!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful vacation rental. We just spent a week in the house with our daughter's family - 4 adults, 2 children - and I wish I could give it a 6 star rating. My days started sitting on the deck and watching the sun come up over the mountains with a cup of coffee in my hand. Using the home, we honestly wanted for nothing. The owner has seen to every detail and is extremely easy to work with!

Great place for a group or just for two

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying, first just myself and girlfriend, second with a group of nine. Very peaceful spot to relax for a few days. Ample amounts of space for plenty of people if it's more of a family gathering, but also doesn't feel overwhelmingly big if it is just two. The pictures of the place and the views are great, but it definitely doesn't do justice to how nice and relaxing it is to actually be there, the kitchen is very open and spacious, the wraparound deck is large for the sunny days and waking up to the mountain ranges a stone's throw away is the cherry on top. Lots of nice trails and a waterfall nearby, the town itself is small but has everything you need for the week. Also it's only a few kilometers from the border, we didn't head across but I'm sure when/if the Canadian dollar bounces back that would be worthwhile to do a little shopping. The owner, Karen, is awesome and I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Elegant to the last detail

  • 5 of 5

The quality of this finely crafted timberframe house adds an dimension of luxury to your stay in the Creston area. We were backcountry skiing on Kootenay Pass and looked forward to coming back home and cooking in the spectacular kitchen and sitting by the fire. Karen does a great job as host as well.

WONDERFUL PLACE!

  • 5 of 5

There were 8 of us (all adults) here for one week and we enjoyed every minute of it! It was quiet, relaxing and very private. This is such a beautiful area! We ate, walked, played cards, drank wine and had a great time. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. The house itself is beautiful and has so much room, we didn't feel like we were tripping over one another. The kitchen is large and contains everything a person needs. All the regular beds were very comfortable in very spacious bedrooms. There was a little bit of an issue with the blow up bed but the property manager came right away and fixed it. I would suggest that the bedroom downstairs with the blow up bed and the single bed would be best used for children or young adults. Karen, the owner, was nothing but helpful and eager to answer any questions. All in all - very positive experience!
