Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, Sleeps Up To 12. Ski-In Ski-Out.

The Lookout is a Luxury Ski-In Ski-Out (to down-hill and cross country ski trails) Timber Frame Chalet with Beautiful Mountain Views @ Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. Our property features hardwood floors throughout with in-floor radiant heat, European-style open galley kitchen with Miele and Liebherr appliances and additional vegetable sink with garburator. Floor to ceiling windows showcasing a 270 degree view of the surrounding mountains and high vaulted wood ceilings throughout. This property is sure to please those seeking a quality vacation.

Three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps up to 12. Large private outdoor hot tub, unusually large soaker tub in Master Bedroom, HIGH SPEED INTERNET, pool table, small BBQ, wood stove, ski and snowboard equipment room with ski tuning table, sleds, laundry room, keyless entry with a code that you choose, multiple entertainment areas, comfortable and welcoming layout.

The Master bedroom is a retreat in itself. Luxurious king size bed, sitting area, soaker tub for two, three-sided glass rain shower, bidet, double sinks, private balcony, lots of storage for clothes. Peaceful. Quiet. Secluded. Just go in, shut the door behind you, and forget the world.

The summers at KHMR offer gondola access ridge hiking. There's downhill mountain biking on the hill and cross country mountain biking near Cedar Lake (5 km down the hill) which has a (pretty extreme looking) rope swing but we have seen people risk it and live to tell... that's up to you. Other attractions include golfing, road cycling, river rafting, fishing, parasailing, grizzly bear refuge on the mountain and a near-by wolf refuge.

A handful of pubs, restaurants, and the general store are all within a five minute walk from The Lookout.

About Gabriel Higham

Hi! Thanks for looking at our home. We’re Marli and Mark. We live in Calgary for now. We like everything about Kicking Horse much better than the weather in Calgary. Between us there are 6 kids and 2 dogs. Marli’s a spiritual teacher, she helps people with pain, relationships, and with pain because of relationships. Mark’s handle on chess.com is dirtymartini

Gabriel Higham purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Gabriel Higham chose British Columbia Rockies

Chosen for it's relaxing comfort, views of the mountains, and uniqueness... This home was built for sharing time together with family and friends. We hope you enjoy your stay! It takes less than three hours to get here from Calgary.

What makes this chalet unique

The feel of The Lookout is warm and cozy. It's pretty grand when you first come up the stairs, vaulted ceilings, the views of the mountains are breathtaking. Sit down and play a game or hang out in the kitchen, pour some drinks, feel right at home. It's pretty lovely to have such an open space to visit with your family and friends. We've enjoyed that aspect so much and we hope you do too.

Your kids will feel right at home, snuggled up watching movies, hot tubbing, boardgames, pool room shenanigans, sledding, snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding. It's the best to ski home when you're needing a break or a snack, and then hop on your skis and head back out.

It's a big mountain with lots of vertical, great snow, chutes, moguls, bowls. I recommend the bathtub in the master bedroom for a little self-time /quiet getaway. We think you'll love your time visiting Kicking Horse with your family and friends.

The Perfect Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Marli was a delight to work with...she was kind, easy to communicate with and shows pride in her properties as I do! What a treat! We rented two homes for our weekend retreat to celebrate my Mother's 70th Birthday and my family was impressed! The views are stunning, wood burning fireplace with kindling ready for us! Everything you would need for a getaway...the hot tub, pool table, kitchen and especially the comfortable beds! We were spoiled as if we were visiting a friend - thank you, Marli! We will definitely tell friends and visit again!

Beautiful house and friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a family re-union in this beautiful house for 4 nights. The house is big, beautiful, clean, and comfortable. Every room has mountain-view windows. I strongly agree that this house is at the best location in the whole resort. The house has billiard, hot tub, high-quality kitchen appliances, and all kinds of liquor glasses. Surely we were enjoying them so much. Fabulous!

Marli was very easy-going and responded to my questions quickly.

Definitely, I will come back and introduce this wonderful house to my friends!

Perfect weekend with the ladies

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a long weekend staying at this beautiful cabin in Golden. Marli was welcoming and incredibly helpful through the whole process. The cabin was beautiful and even with some days of smoky skies we all loved our time spent. Marli gave us restaurant suggestions and even mentioned a crazy rope swing on Cedar Lake (though we were all too chicken to partake) Thank you for sharing your home with us! We would definitely rent again.

Spectacular property located close to a chair lift

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house in a quiet cul de sac of expensive properties. My famiuly and I visisted here in Feb 17. We had an excellent time. The master bedroom is amazing and the lounge/dining/kitchen areas are also superb. There are also a spacious boot room and a pool room. We had a couple of problems with the dishwasher and a cupboard but the owners respinded proimptly and helpfully to sort this. We loved the private hot tub (perhaps add a mat to avoid the gravel).

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

As advertised.. a beautiful home with easy ski in / ski out access. Cozy. Everything you need for a winter vacation is there. The views from the hot tub are a bonus! We (including our two dogs) would stay there again.
