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!

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.

Lovely chalet

  • 4 of 5

Chalet itself is really nice. Kitchen is well stocked. Lots of space. Great location close to town with beautiful mountain views. Needs a little TLC as some of the linens are worn, door handles loose and very loud dishwasher.

Beyond Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing cabin with all the necessities covered. The pictures don't do it justice! We had family ski trip planned and there were 6 of us in total. We had more space than we knew what to do with. The cabin was well equipped with everything we could have needed. The bedrooms were located on separate floors which gave some privacy for all, a BBQ which was easily accessible from the kitchen and a hot tub that was used every evening. Francois was great to deal with and promptly answered any/all questions we had regarding the property.

We rode one day at Castle Mountain which was only an hour and a half drive from the cabin and two days at Fernie which was less than 10 mins away. We couldn't have asked for a better location!
