Clean, comfortable, quiet.

For the third year in a row, the Birch Nest has been the choice for us while at Sun Peaks Resort. Reasonably priced, close to the main village, and all the amenities you could ever need while on vacation. The hot tub was great after a long day of biking and other residents were courteous and reserved. We will likely be back next year! Thanks again.

Favourite property in Sun Peaks

left on Aug-21-2013

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of staying at The Birch Nest in Sun Peaks, and I again was more than impressed with my experience. Everything was neat and tidy, the hot tub was welcoming at the end of the day, and our entire party had a great time. I would recommend The Birch Nest to any small family or a couple for a getaway any time of year!

Beautiful and well equipped accommodation.

This home was a great place to stay. The ski in ski out is well appreciated. We had everything we needed and everything was in working order. Thank you for helping us when we had trouble getting in and following up with us. The size was perfect for our family party of six. It was great to not have walk up several flights of stairs from the parkade as well. I would definitely stay here again.

A great ski-in and ski-out condo

left on Feb-14-2013

Well-appointed, great location for ski in and ski out, right next to tobaggan run (golf course), hot tub, amenities, everything well done! we especially loved the boot and mitt dryer. we have never stayed anywhere with one of these and it made such a big difference!!! We also had two other groups of friends staying in settler's crossing and the set-up of the complex made it very conducive to travel as part of a larger group but still have your own space.

Our gamble on having some early snow didn't pay off, however the accommodation more than made up for it and we were very impressed by the property and facilities.

Comfort and relaxation in a serene setting.

left on Sep-09-2012

The Birch Nest in Sun Peaks was an absolute treat to stay at. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived and the unit was in impeccable order and as the owners were aware we would be arriving late, left the interior and exterior front entrance lights on to aid in finding the door. The unit was in meticulous shape and was extremely well appointed and during our stay we never found ourselves looking for any item we may have needed. The birch highlights throughout the condo are a beautiful touch and the entire place feels like home. The hot tub on the front porch looks out to the mountains and the Sunburst Lift, with a breath taking view while enjoying your morning coffee or relaxing in the evening. I will be be back again next year and already cant wait to spend a week at The Birch Nest!

Comfortable space, easy to ski trails

left on Jan-05-2012

The Birch Nest worked great for our family. Easy access to ski trails - both for x-country and downhill. Great having two bathrooms, and liked the decor, especially the Kaiku Birch tree prints throughout the condo. It is a ways from the village, though, and not for anyone looking for a 5 minute walk to the restaurants.

We enjoyed staying in Birch Nest very much. The unit was very clean when we arrived. It is well appointed and very nicely decorated and furnished. We appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was and enjoyed the hot tub.

We recently stayed at the birch nest for our spring skiing holiday. The weather conditions weren't always ideal but the accommodations were. We spent plenty of time resting & relaxing in the comfort of the roomy, well equiped BirchNest condo. We will certainly come back if we plan on skiing SunPeaks again.
