Great place for families !

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderful and had a minor issue with the hot tub but Francois got it fixed quickly. Only thing I would recommend would be to get another chair in the main living room for seating but other than that - great place to stay with the family. I would book this again !

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the chalet. The location is great in a very quiet area with beautiful views.

The chalet is very comfortable with plenty of space and great to be able to have our dogs .

The hot tub was a wonderful bonus as well. We will definitely be back!

Ideal Property

  • 5 of 5

This property was ideal for our group of six hikers. Lots of bed spaces, fully stalked kitchen, great deck area, large hot tub, privacy from neighbouring properties and access to grocery/wine shopping and great trails near by. Communication with the owner was easy and fast. You won't go wrong by booking this top notch accommodation.

About Francois Viljoen

Professional couple living in Calgary.

Our kids have all grown up, now we come to our beloved cabin a little bit less... and decided to share with others.

Francois Viljoen purchased this chalet in 1996

Why Francois Viljoen chose Fernie

We fell in love with this property the moment we set eyes on it! Difficult to describe, but everyone that has ever been here just loves it.

Come see for yourself.

What makes this chalet unique

About one quarter of the property is visible from the street. Once you are in the backyard, you see the forest for you to explore all the way down to the creek. Look out for fairies!
