Log cabin in the mountains with fresh cedar smells

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Alpine Cougar Chalet from Thursday to Sunday for a ski weekend and a wedding in Fernie. The accomodations were beautiful! My favourite part was walking into the chalet each day and smelling the fresh cedar. Each night, we were able to cozy up on the couch to a crackling fire, some board games and lots of laughs. The home was very clean and spacious. The downstairs tennants were home the entire time and checked in on us a few times which took away from the privacy. We were already planning how nice it would be to return in the summer time. The chalet is surrounded by other impressive homes on a private road. There are nice hikes close by. It would be quite the hike in the winter to get into town but would be very nice in the summer time. The owners were very responsive and answered all of our questions. There was plenty of towels and linens for everyone and the kitchen was stocked well! Can't wait to return with friends.

The Perfect Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful Chalet twice in the last 2 years. You could definitely call this space our "Happy Place"! This home is beautiful and has a stunning open concept floor plan allowing you to take in picture perfect views from every room. The home is extremely clean, spacious and is equipped with a BBQ, all appliances, dishes, towels, bedding, and extra blankets you could possibly need. The home is large enough to sleep 10 adults and the beds and bedding are extremely comfortable. Another feature we appreciate is the use of laundry services that is always an added plus when traveling. The home has a beautiful deck with a large hot tub that overlooks the stunning landscape and if you are lucky enough you might even see a few deer walking through as you soak. We love this home and it's easy access to the trail system for biking, hiking and jogging. It is also close to the hill for skiing and minutes away from downtown Fernie if you want to enjoy a day of shopping, eating and strolling around. We will be back for many years to come!!! Thanks for the great memories!!

Amazing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our two families stayed here for the family day long weekend. It was absolutely perfect. We had no issues with anything in the cabin. The manager down stairs was very helpful when we did need her. We did snowshoe right from the house . I think my favorite part about the house was sitting by the beautiful fireplace , listening to the wood crackle as it burned , enjoying a cup of tea and just looking outside the window to see this winter wonderland. I would recommend this place and I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

A Piece of Heaven

This is absolutely a wonderful place to stay. Extremely comfortable, cozy and very clean. The location is serene and beautiful! I highly recommend this chalet! The kitchen is well stocked with every small appliance, many serving dishes, cooking dishes, you do not have to bring a thing!! The beds are comfortable and the bedding is wonderful! Better than a hotel by far!

Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

This chalet is great; beautiful ambiance with its stone fireplace, pine floors, and surrounding trees.

Located a short drive from the skihill and town, I would recommend this to friends and family looking for a weekend (or a week-long) getaway. Wind down in the hot tub after a day of skiing, or simply relax on the front deck with a coffee as the summer sun rises. I can speak for our group of 10 when I say we're looking forward to our next trip!

There is an abundance of activities, winter and summer, from challenging to leisurely, in the area. Get your fly fishing fix on the Elk River, just 15 minutes away from the chalet. The river is full of big cutthroat and bull trout. Golf all you want at the Fernie Golf and Country Club or 4 other different courses in the area surrounded by spectacular views. Skiing, snowboarding or cross country in groomed or fresh powder is a must. Mountain biking, hiking, and whitewater rafting among some of the best mountain trails and waterways will make your dreams a reality. We invite you to uncover the magic of the outdoors in this beautiful area. Don't forget to bring your cameras.
