Piece of paradise
The house was perfect for our family of five - had everything we could want to make our stay awesome. The setting is beautiful, quiet and close to groceries and stores. The park entrance was a bit of a drive but manageable.
Amazing place to stay and relax in Jasper area !
We had a very nice time at this home. Darren was very attentive to our needs and Patty was very kind to also help us and give us advise on what to do around the area. We felt at home and had everything we needed it. The house was very cozy and spacious. We went nearby to the Miette Hot Springs where we did the Sulfur Hike (5 .5 miles round trip) to the top of the mountain and had amazing views of Jasper area. Needless to say we loved our stay here.
Awesome. Bring bikes if you like to ride. Playground right across the street!
Great. Stress free!
We had an awesome time. We want to return in the summer to take advantage of the fishing and trails.
Modern and cozy.
We loved it!
The house is very cozy, clean & well equipped kitchen with everything you needed. Thank you Darren to make our Christmas Winter Gate away Memorable and Fun.
beautiful place in the world
Quiet, clean spacious accommodation in a lovely part of the world.
Close enough to Hinton for provisions but quiet enough to feel you are in real Canada. Opportunities exist to see wildlife (bears, deer and elk).
Excellent host with easy access to property
Brule is a historic hamlet with 52 residences and many amenities. There's a community league area with a hall, ball diamonds, picnic areas, a hockey rink, fire pits and a play ground. It even has it own volunteer fire department!
The town is located just a couple of minutes from the Athabasca River, Brule Lake and the famous Brule Sand Dunes. We are surrounded by trees and an abundance of wildlife, such as elk, deer, moose, cougars, bears, foxes, wolves, coyotes, and many other small varieties. There are extensive birds varieties too numerous to list, but who serenade us every morning in the warmer months. A little farther away, around 20 minutes, is the town of Hinton with enough shops and services to ensure that you are never without supplies. 15 minutes away are 5 lakes that offer boating, kayaking and fishing. There are several horse adventure companies also just minutes away, as well as rafting adventures. An amazing adventure also awaits you at Ogre Canyon, a 4 km hike at the base of Jasper National Park.
A short drive takes you to Jasper National Park gate. The park has more things to do than can be included in this narrative, but examples include skiing at Marmot Basin, some of the best cross country skiing land in the world, Miette Hot Springs, world renowned Jasper Park Lodge golf course, Athabasca Falls and of course the town of Jasper itself. Surrounded by numerous mountain fed lakes and mountains, the town of Jasper is the jewel of the Canadian Rockies. Considerable effort has gone into ensuring that Jasper Town retains its charm, with restrictions on commercialization and overbuilding. This results in an experience that is consistent with its natural surroundings. The drive to Jasper often sees mountain goats. elk, moose, and bears like the ones on the pictures
