It is a short, flat walk to the Elk Chair (about 3 minutes). This is a special place of scenic beauty that offers outdoor enthusiasts the ultimate in year round 'mountain' accommodation. Loaded with special touches that offer you more than just a place to stay. It is sure to soothe your soul after an adventurous day in the Rocky Mountains.

The Ferniehouse living room and loft windows look at the amazing Lizard Range mountains. The kitchen, living room, laundry and one bathroom are on the main level. Upstairs are three bedrooms, a large loft with queen sofa bed and 42' flat screen TV with Apple TV, cable, and Netflix. The master bedroom has a large closet with views to the rear of the house looking to the hot tub and forest. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed and and two twin beds.

The garage is set up as a gear room and houses a boot heater for 12 pairs of boots. There are racks for skis and boards, poles and gear. The garage is heated and has two couches --great for putting on toasty boots while getting ready to head out or gathering at the end of the ski day for mountain adventure stories.

Great ski chalet!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fernie House. Beds were super comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. We enjoyed the hot tub on the back deck looking a the mountains after our ski day! Thank you so much for sharing.

Good Stay at Ferniehouse

  • 4 of 5

We (two families with a total of 6 kids ages 2 -11) enjoyed our stay at Ferniehouse. The location is convenient for most activites in the Fernie area and the house is nicely decorated. The beds were very comfortable and the inflatable mattress in the loft worked well for a couple of the kids.The hot tub was very popular with our group and we made good use of the patio furniture and firepit. The kids enjoyed the games and books that came with the house. There were a few small maintenance issues with the house (be careful with the deck railing off the front bedroom if you have small children) that we passed along to the owner, who was very receptive to our feedback. A griddle and a mixer would be great additions to the kitchen. Overall, we thought this property was very good value.

Fantastic ski trip

  • 5 of 5

What a memorable trip. Fernie is a great ski destination and there couldn't be a better spot to stay then Fernie House. The ski in location is perfect and the large ski room was great too. We were three couples and it was extremely comfortable space wise plus great for apres ski, cooking and dining and enjoying the hot tub. Would not hesitate to recommend this spot for your next ski trip.
