Property description

The Cozy Timberframe is perfectly located in the quant village of Elko. World class fly fishing and kayaking at your doorstep. Explore the areas many lakes for some cliff jumping and a swim. Feel like some downhill? Grab the planks or bikes, Fernie ski hill is only 15 minutes from here! Whether your idea of fun is photographing wildlife or rafting the mighty Elk river it all starts here.
The beautiful small town of Elko is situated on a high plateau at the base of the Rocky Mountain range, it overlooks the beautiful Rocky Mountain Trench to our west and is at the beginning of the famous Elk Valley. A nature lovers paradise, close enough to Fernie's amenities but still far enough from the tourist trap. Join the locals at the community hall for a pancake breakfast on the second Sunday of every month or pick berries with the kids right outside the back door and relax on the back deck.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I grew up in the area and have a large network of close friends and family there. I currently live in Calgary and work as a Firefighter. I have a wife and four kids that love the outdoors as much as I do. We have been lucky enough to travel and explore many great places around the world. The East Kootenays is still my favourite. I've ran the rivers, and walked the mountains here, try it, I think you'll love it too.

Why the Owner Chose East Kootenay B, BC, Canada:
Close to everything. In minutes you can be on the beach at surveyors lake, or wake boarding at koocanusa, or hauling in a bull trout from the Elk river, or grabbing a treat at the ice cream stand, or catching a movie in Fernie after making fresh tracks in knee deep powder. Maybe start your day at the best coffee house ever, The First Perk in Jaffray, and plan your next adventure

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Brand new timber frame house, four bunk beds for the kids to recharge and enough space for Ma and Pa to relax.
