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!

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!

The lodge had everything we needed and was very clean and well kept

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in fernie, the lodge was perfect for our family. There was lots of snow so the skiing was great and we had lots of fun digging forts in the huge snow piles right at the cabin. It was nice to jump in the hot tub at the end of the day. The cabin had everything we needed and plenty of room for all of us. Definitely will be back!

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.
