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 Marli

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

Marli purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Marli chose British Columbia Mountains

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.

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.

Group Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group goes for annual ski weekends and try to rotate from hill to hill to have different ski experiences every time. We were not disappointed this time around at Kicking Horse. Marli and Mark were incredible hosts, helping along every step of the way - and even helped with some lost belongings! The house is beautiful. A unique set up, but great for privacy and a lovely view of the mountain. The Lookout is definitely a perfect name for the property. The hot tub was well used and the house has so many bonuses to keep you entertained - board games, TV, etc. The kitchen is well stocked and very easy to cook for a large group. And the master bedroom - a perfect addition for a nice mountain getaway. It is huge! Highly recommend for a family or close group.

The property is absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at the lookout was amazing. The house is beautiful & is stocked with anything & everything you'd ever need. Seconds from the hills main gondola, with the ability to ski to the front door. The owners were a dream to deal with. 10/10 would recommend. Thank you so much again.

Fantastic home - perfect for our group

  • 5 of 5

This fantastic home was perfect for our group ski trip. Easy access to the mountain - we didn't need our cars during the 5 day stay. The hot tub, gear room, spacious kitchen and living spaces, wood stove and all of the nice touches made for a perfect stay. Marli was incredibly responsive and a great host. Can't recommend enough.

Amazing views and really friendly owners.

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful. The views from inside were amazing.

The wood stove and hottub were great at the end of the ski day. The boot room was a really convenient place to get geared up in the mornings.

The ski trail leading from the front of the house to the gondola was so convenient! And the run leading to the house was great for stopping in for lunch, and for getting back easy at the end of the day.

The place was immaculate and the owners are great, friendly, and helpful!

So glad we got the chance to stay here. It was a truly special place.

Incredible views

  • 5 of 5

The Lookout Chalet is incredible. This was our first visit to the Kicking Horse Resort and we picked the perfect place to stay. The house is gorgeous, clean and well equipped. The outside temperatures were extremely cold during our visit, so we didn't ski as much as intended but we had such a great time hanging out in The Lookout in front of the fire in the great room, playing board games, playing pool downstairs, and making meals in the beautiful kitchen. The master suite is huge and I loved lying in bed watching the sun come up over the mountain peaks. We were a group of only 4 but this house has plenty of room for larger groups. Hot tub was nice and clean. The resort is a 5 minute walk. You can easily ski down to the lifts but a little tougher coming back up with ski boots on, but doable. Marli was a very responsive host. I highly recommend this VRBO!

Owner's Response: We're happy you enjoyed your vacation at The Lookout! I agree, the walk up from the village is a bit of a huff with all your equipment. It's best to ski right onto our street on West Side accessed from Kicking Horse over to Bail Out or from Race Place. Most times you can ski right into the driveway as there's usually enough snow on the street.
