The white noise of the creek helps create a real feeling of tranquility. The patio is a great place to sit for coffee on sunny mornings, and a great refuge from the hot afternoon sun.
Soaking in the hot tub and listening to the creek is the best way to wrap up the day's activities!

This is a hidden little gem. Perfect for a small family. Got everything you need in a beautiful peaceful surroundings. We had a couple of minor issues, but Paul was awesome and sorted them out immediately. Newly and tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We will be back! Great to have Netflicks for our child and us once he was in bed.View Full Review

The place is great! The hot tub was a very nice addition since our last stay here. We will likely be back, too! Paul and M-P are incredibly friendly! You should also check out their beautiful store in town! Had a great time, we love Fernie!View Full Review Owner Has Responded
Awesome accommodation and location

I assume that 5 star rating is the highest. I cannot think of a single "down side" to staying at this property. We met both of the owners, they were very helpful. The cleanliness was outstanding. The amenities and supplies in the rental suite were numerous and extensive. We loved our visit. I brought 2 teenage boys and the space was perfect with 2 twin beds and private bathroom.
Highly recommend this property. We very much hope to return in the future. Fernie is a great place to downhill and x country ski. The local aquatic centre has a lovely pool and waterslide. Many thanks to the owners.View Full Review
Great Spot To Stay
ben from Canmore, Canada

Great option for anyone looking to enjoy the benefits of a suite in a quiet part of Fernie. Ideal for pet owners who don't want to leave their dog or cat behind. Property at the end of a road with a closed service road yards away which leads into a valley for walking one's dog or enjoying a stroll. Property and suite are well kept and stylish in design.
Only item of note, kitchen lacks abundant counter space for those who plan on cooking large meals - maybe the installation of a small island could help on this front. All the same a fine well stock kitchen with commonly used appliances, dishes, pot and pans etc.... Good, reliable appliances etc... Minutes away from downtown Fernie
Thanks Paul - great spot and we'll tell anyone planning a Fernie visit to look your property up. Ben, Valerie and Forest the RavenhoundView Full Review

We were incredibly impressed with our Labour Day weekend in this beautiful suite. It has everything we value in a vacation property, plus more! It is clean, quiet, pet friendly and private. The configuration of the bedrooms is great - mom and dad had their own space while our boys had their own bed to sleep in. The kitchen is nicely stocked, with little extras like fancy coffee machines! The hot tub, firepit, and outdoor deck area was also very enjoyable. Paul and Marie are incredibly friendly and helpful hosts. Best of all, the location is spectacular. Stunning mountain views and a peaceful little creek await every time to step out the door. This is a wonderful home away from home and we plan to return!View Full Review
Best ski vacation in 20 years. Going Back.
Steve C from Montreal, Canada
Skiing Fernie is amazing. Friends who have mountain bike here in the summer, have said the trails are great. There is snow-shoeing right behind the house. Paul and Marie-Pierre are great hosts. They were very responsive to our every need. Fernie skiing is a short ten minute drive, and the town is less than 2 minutes away. The accommodations are very comfortable and the quality is many levels above a condo or hotel room. The water in the hot tub was always clean and hot tub does wonders for old bones after a hard day of powder skiing.. The Wi-Fi was always connected and fast. My wife and I have travel many places in the world, but the 6 weeks in Fernie as guests of Paul and Marie-Pierre were really special. So much so, that we have just booked another 6 weeks this winter.
Beautiful and quiet with lovely attention to detail.
This is a two bedroom basement annex with seperate access in a secluded rural setting. We stayed for 6 nights. The place is clean and really well appointed. It feels really high class and the owners go a long way to make your stay very special with lots of little additions and thoughts adding to your comfort. We spent the week skiing and the drive is about 10 minutes, parking is v easy at the ski hill. We hardly saw the owners who live above but they were very friendly when we did. The hot tub is a great addition, sitting in the warmth under the stars with only the sound of the nearby creek was my favourite place to be after a hard days skiing. Highly recommended.
14Marianne from Hanna, Alberta, Canada
I NEVER stay at the same place twice, but this property will be the first exception. It was perfect for us, we did not have time to use the hot tub or the firepit, so next time we will make the time. Value for cost was excellent. Does not compare with a hotel for privacy, quality, & space. This property is only about a 2 min drive to downtown Fernie.
Superb in every way!
Paula K from
Wonderful location, beautifully decorated and maintained, very clean, super compfortable bed...loved this place!
Amazing stay in Fernie
We stayed here for three days with three kids (1,3 and 6). The suite is the entire ground floor of an amazing house. very private, mountain creek in the back yard and your own hot tub, BBQ and croquet set :D. Also has two large bedrooms, two bathrooms and a full kitchen. amazing mountain views in the backyard. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating to both kids and dogs. Incredible experience overall.
Does not get any better than this...
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Hamilton
We stayed here for 10 days this past winter, and it was absolute perfection! Amazing location situated in a peaceful and scenic Canyon, next to a lovely stream, spacious, well laid out, safe and private, and only minutes from the hip town of Fernie and the amazing ski hill. My wife and I and 2 young sons were unbelievably comfortable in this high-end 2 bedroom guest suite - with every imaginable convenience (high end finishes, N'Espresso Machine, Washer/Dryer, heat traced floors, free internet, private outdoor hot-tub under the stars, etc). The owners are extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We have been coming to Fernie for 10 years and this is easily the best place to stay. We are going back this summer too - as the same suite is perfect for the river, playing outside, fishing, golf, mountain biking and relaxing. What a peaceful and natural place to call home. Bravo!
Quiet + everything you need
Lexi99 from Calgary, Alberta
My husband and I were in town for a golf getaway. Loved the peaceful location in an area 5 minutes to town centre. It's a complete downstairs suite but it's a walkout so you've got full windows, tons of light and your own private entrance. Plus we couldn't hear anything upstairs. Outside we had our own private patio which just faces into the woods with a creek some ways away but within earshot. Very peaceful. This is a full suite - including your own kitchen and washer/dryer. Everything is new and the furniture and wood decor is very lovely. This would easily accommodate a family of 4 but for just the 2 of us we liked having our own bathrooms (there are 2). Also, arrangements with the owner were very easy and professional.
