About the property

Quiet and Cozy Log Cabin near world-class Skiing and Fly Fishing

This three bedroom, three bathroom cabin has been our safe retreat for more than fifteen years. All amenities that you could ask for, a hot tub, free wifi, cable TV, and four extra single beds for the kids.

Walk down the path to Faerie creek or just listen to the sounds of the river from your bedroom.

In winter: Nine minutes from Fernie Alpine Ski resort.. In summer easy access to mountain bike and hiking trails, and walking distance to the river for some of the world's best fly fishing.

There is one king sized bed upstairs with an attached ensuite, there are two additional bedrooms with a queen sized bed in each. Also, there is a pull-out couch in the basement, two single beds on the loft upstairs beside the master bedroom, and a set of bunk beds downstairs in the living room, behind the pull out couch.

We ask for your check-in time to be no earlier than 4pm, and check-out no later than 11am. Thank you.

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 British Columbia Mountains

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!

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We had a great time at the Kootenay Log Chalet and really enjoyed the area. Very cozy home and had plenty of space that allowed us to spend time together and also get quite time when needed. Hot tub was a perfect touch and we enjoyed a working away on one of the puzzles and had great game of jenga as well. Lots of stuff to cook with in the kitchen and even enjoyed the hammock on the deck (: Would certainly go back

Excellent log cabin

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

The cabin had been excellent, very cozy and quaint. There is plenty of room for great times, the kitchen comfortably seats 6 and the living room is so comfy and has an amazing view up the valley towards the three sisters. Location is key, great place to walk through the neighbourhood and up the Mt. Fernie trails. It is short 10 minute drive to the ski hill and less then 5 mins to the grocery store. There are a few things that detract from the property minorly. The dishwasher sounds like a lawn mower and the oven door is pretty broken but neither of these things don't detract considerably from the charm of the chalet. We have had a great stay and would recommend this place to any group of 4 or more.

Great views from the living room window in this rustic home. Well equipped with the necessities but requires some TLC.

Gorgeous log cabin in the mountains

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We recently stayed here for a long weekend. It is a gorgeous cabin, in a stunning setting, fully equipped with tons of space for all 6 of us. The hot tub was an added bonus. The only downside was the lack of outdoor furniture on the deck. Highly recommend it here!

Beautiful cabin in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This was our first time visiting Fernie and I'm so happy we picked this cabin! The cabin itself is very well kept, clean and well stocked with everything you could need. The sleeping arrangements were perfect and the large basment was great for the kids. Only a few minutes drive to town but with beautiful mountain views and felt quite secluded. We will definitely be back again!

A comfortable cabin close to amenities and plenty of outdoor activities. We loved it!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The cabin is wonderful, my family of four had a great time with plenty of corners to hide away as well a great comfy room to enjoy our time together. We hiked trails close by as well traveled to lakes for cool swims on the hot days. The cabin was clean and provided all the amenities a modern family needs. What a great get away!

Nine minutes from one of the world's best ski resorts! Despite that fact, Fernie is a wonderful summer destination. Only three hours from Calgary and less than an hour from the US border, Fernie is easily accessible.
