About the property

In Winter you can drive right up to Strathcona vacation Rental and then ski out onto the slope to catch the high speed 6 seater 'Hawk' chairlift, which is just outside our front door! We are the second closest ski chalet to the Nordic Lodge and the cross country ski trails.

In Summer, enjoy Mt. Washington Alpine Resort and the beach is only 30 minutes away! The entrance to Strathcona Provincial Park is right on our doorstep. You can enjoy a relaxed stroll on the unique boardwalk trails or take an adventurous hike. There are many marked trails through the forests and open meadows leading right up to pristine alpine lakes with views of Vancouver Island’s snow capped mountains.

Wonderful as always

We have stayed at your Chalet several times and we have always enjoyed ourselves. It’s so wonderful to come there knowing what to expect. It’s always very clean and has a cozy feel to it. Thank you

If you want a well stocked and furnished home for ski in/ski out access, this is the one. Check in/out was a breeze and our entire stay was perfect.

Perfect location, and clean

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at cabin. It was very clean, spacious, and ski in/ski out. Amazing that you don’t need to haul anything up a hill, just drive right up and drop off your stuff. John and Sue were very pleasant and accommodating. My only complaint is that the beds in rooms 2 and 3 are very uncomfortable for adults. We’d love to stay again but only if the mattresses are changed. My husband had to sleep on the futon in the living room as sharing that bed would not be possible. Very soft and sinking in the middle.

Other than that, the place is perfect. Thank you kindly for our stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Celina, Thank you for your nice review and for pointing out that a couple of mattresses needed replacing, this has now been done. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back some time.

beautiful spot

  • 4 of 5

we had a great relaxing couple of days at the chalet. It was very clean and comfortable. The chalet had everything we needed. Except the microwave was not working but was really no big deal. We will certainly stay there again.
