Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Big White - Crescendo

House -5 Bedrooms - 5 Baths - (Sleeps 22)

With pleasure, we welcome you to

Crescendo: a world-class home of unparalleled excellence:

classic elegance ... like never before.

Crescendo is not merely a chalet, it’s a fortress! At more than 5000 sq ft, Crescendo defines “luxury,” and every aspect was designed for practicality and for comfort.

Crescendo is a 5 bedroom 5 bathroom home (6 bedroom if using Rec Room as a bedroom, too). Although Crescendo has enough fixed and movable beds to sleep 28, our intention is to comfortably sleep 22. To better accommodate the unique needs of our guests, several of our spaces may be arranged in different ways.

Three of our bedrooms are dedicated wholly to that use: the Master Bedroom & the two Guest Bedrooms. The Theatre and Game Room are our flexible bedrooms, meaning that the rooms can easily serve as being both entertainment areas and private bedrooms. While cleverly designed and hidden, the beds in both of those rooms are custom-made and permanent. Also, the bedding/mattresses are of the same exceptional quality as the dedicated bedrooms.

The bed/bath configurations may be found elsewhere on this site. Note, though, that even when not including the use of any of the sleeper couches, Crescendo sleeps 22 in 16 separate beds (1 King, 5 Queens, 10 Twins).

Almost all of Crescendo's bedrooms have their own private ensuites. The master ensuite, though, is especially sweet. Not only does it boast a two-person steam-shower, but the two-person jetted tub overlooks the Great Room, providing views to the fireplace, to the ski slopes, and to the Monashee mountains.

While Crescendo can’t lay claim to creating the Monashee Mountains, we can lay claim to capturing it. The unprecedented panoramas through the Great Room’s twenty-eight foot floor-to-ceiling windows are truly breathtaking. From virtually every room, in fact, your eye can feast endlessly on awe-inspiring beauty: a beauty that remains the foundational ingredient to your realizing the depth of tranquility that can be experienced at Crescendo.

Practical elegance is another way to describe Crescendo, and that description extends also to its SmartHome features. Whether you’re technologically savvy or technologically challenged, you’ll be intrigued by the intuitive nature of Crescendo’s home automation systems. When you arrive to Crescendo, merely touch “arrive”, and the home awakens. Key lighting guides you through each room, and the fireplace and whole-house XM music automatically activate setting the ambiance while you settle in. You’ll enjoy experimenting with the touchpanels in each room, through which computer-integrated lighting, audio/video, and climate-control are all at your command.

Sixteen amplified zones allow music to be localized or distributed throughout the entire house (garage and outside decks, inclusive). While XM radio is provided for you, Crescendo can shake hands with your iPod or iPhone, allowing the system to read, display, control, and distribute your personal collection as well.

Non-Skiers? No Problem!

Staying at Crescendo is like being at a private lodge. Skiers and non-skiers both rave about Crescendo’s entertainment options, which is why Crescendo is enjoyed by guests even outside of ski season. Crescendo’s Media Room, for example, is outstanding! The movie screen is 110”, with 7.1 surround sound (not to mention two 12” subwoofers). More than 800 movie titles are at your fingertips, literally. They can be reviewed by scrolling through their electronic jackets projected onto the screen, and controlled, of course, via the two touchpanels in that room (yes, you’ll find a customized remote controller, as well).

Fitness-Inclined?

No problem with body image here! Crescendo is equipped with 2 unique high-end fitness systems: the PowerTower and the SwimGym. The PowerTower was designed for high performance functional sports training (and clinical physical rehabilitation). Crescendo’s SwimGym equally adds a novel dimension to recreation, to exercise therapy, and to sports medicine. It’s non-aerated system creates an underwater current for stationary lap swimming.

Our Signature Dish

Clearly the main course at Big White is the 25 ft of champagne powder that is served at Big White each year. We have told by our guests, though, that Crescendo’s signature dish is, without doubt, our indoor-outdoor pool/Jacuzzi.

Special Events

Crescendo is the perfect venue for family or Corporate retreats, for weddings, and more. Crescendo’s expansive ceilings and open-layout combine to make Crescendo warm and inviting: whether the event is small and intimate or over 100 strong. Also, Big White’s setting, of course, is wholly magical.

Coming to Kelowna for Golfing or for the Wine Festival? Crescendo can accommodate you and your golfing buddies (or multi-generational families).

About Mitchel D. Perlman

Dr. Mitch is a Forensic Neuropsychologist, who specializes in the assessment of children and adolescents who have specialized needs and/or who are involved in chaotic-intense-traumatic-critical- situations. Known for the comprehensiveness of his investigatory assessments (Psychodiagnostic, Psychoeducational, Neuro-Cognitive), he is often called on to be the impartial Independent Examiner in juvenile, family, civil, and special education proceedings.

Additionally, Dr. Mitch is part of the nationwide (and Southern California) Miniature Pinscher Rescue, where he fosters Min Pins until their forever families are found. He couldn't resist adopting two of his own, Jax & Jake, photos of whom may appear on this site.

Mitchel D. Perlman purchased this house in 2007

Why Mitchel D. Perlman chose Big White

It's about the Snow, about the People, and about the Property. At Big White, it's all about the snow. Consistently, there is more champagne powder at Big White than at any other mountain I have experienced. The people of Kelowna are genuine and honorable, and the Aussie influence at Big White is electrifying. Crescendo itself? Simply stated, second to none: in its location; in its amenities; and more.

What makes this house unique

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Claire! Thanks also for sending some of he pics of your wedding at Crescendo. They were truly incredible. You and Chris make such a handsome couple, and baby Kellen is so cute. When you do get your album from the photographer, any you can share with me, that would be great! We host more weddings outside of ski season than during ski season, so your pics would be a real treat for me to see. Warm Regards, Mitch

An Amazing Place for a Wedding!

  • 5 of 5

Crescendo was the perfect place for our wedding, which we held just before Big White opened for its ski season. All of our guests just raved about the beautiful setting and about the spectacular chalet. We had over 80 guests throughout the chalet, with room to have invited a few more.

The ceremony was beautiful in the Grande Room, with the picturesque view of the Monashees in the background. Everything went extremely smoothly thanks to the caretaker.

The caterers were clearly at home with Crescendo’s large commercial Kitchen for preparing the food. The Media Room, with its separate bar area, was perfect for serving refreshments, and we were able to stream our personalized slide show to the big screen in that room.

There was ample space for everyone to mingle and dance throughout the night, and oh did we dance! With the ceremony, the reception, and the accommodation all under the same roof, Crescendo was the perfect place to have our all-in-one event.

Crescendo helped us to create the stylish, yet intimate, atmosphere we had wanted, resulting in our special day being even more elegant and beautiful than we had hoped. All of our guests and families just loved Crescendo.

What more can I say? We highly recommend Crescendo for anyone looking for a special and unique setting for a wedding, or for just about any celebration.

We will have wonderful memories of this venue for the rest of our lives.

Owner's Response: Hi Krista / Cal - Thanks much for the great review. I saw some pics (and the video) from the wedding. Krista you looked gorgeous! Cal, not so much (just kidding Cal). What a handsome couple. I saw pics of Cal's dad at the wedding too. Wow! incredible that he was able to get the medical clearance to attend. So glad all worked out well for you both. Very warm regards, Mitch

This house is unreal! The pictures do NOT do this house justice. From the showers to the surround sound to the theater you will not stay in a more "cater to your needs" home away from home!! 5 Floors of AWESOME!! The weather sucked during our stay. We were unlucky with bad timing and it rained the whole time, but didn't damper our mood :) We ALL had a blast !!

Amazing Rental House Right off Lifts

  • 5 of 5

I had never been to Big White, however I was completely blown away after staying at Crescendo with 20+ people (without feeling crowded). It is a modern, pristine, home with top of the line appliances, an indoor/outdoor hot tub, massive dining room table for the whole group and better yet, is ski/ski out. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone in the area.

Owner's Response: Thanks Lincoln, for the review, and for the pictures you sent also via email. It looks like you all had an incredible time. I think you get the award, too, for having the most people at one time in our jacuzzi/pool. Please "like" us on Facebook, to keep up with our specials, updates, and more (http://facebook.com/skiCrescendo).

Amazing trip @ Big White!!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with the experience we had at Crescendo. We have rented many properties before but none compare to the cleanliness and amenities found here. No detail was left unthought of....down to the kitchen coming well equipped with all of the appliances, spices and cookware needed to make a meal(s) for a very large group. (Thankfully!) Loved the convenience of being in a true ski on ski-off with quick easy access to the lodge, market and bar. There is no question that I would recommend the Crescendo,.. I know I'll be back next year!

Owner's Response: Thanks Kelly! Every time I return to Crescendo I have so many of those same thoughts. First, I don’t think I could ever be happier than when I reflect on my experiences at Crescendo. Second, what a difference it makes when staying at a TRUE ski-in/ski-out home. Thanks much for the kind comments.

This place has something for everyone!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the total package for the entire family. The ease to ski on and off the mountain right to the lifts is incredible and gives the chance for parents with young children to take turns enjoying the powder. While at the house there is entertainment from movie theatre to relax or ping pong for tournament. After a long day on the mountain and games on the table take an indoor or outdoor soak in the spa. For those who are still up for some more entertainment take a simple walk to the village and enjoy the night life! I highly recommend and look forward to a future visit.

Owner's Response: Hey Tom – Thanks for the great review. Convenience, convenience, convenience! Really, it’s one of the main ingredients that goes into a ski vacation. That factor is hard to describe about Crescendo, but so readily experienced by all when there. Cheers – Mitch
