About Katharine casey

We are a family with 3 young kids, and had this cabin built just for us. We lived here all Summer long for 4 years in a row and a lot of the winter, but now our oldest is in grade 4 we had to move to the city, but still love the cabin!!! Designed for comfort and entertaining this cabin has it all. A perfect get away with kids toys to play with, badminton, croquet, bocce ball, a sandbox and playground our family loves this place and we hope you will too!!!

Katharine casey purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Katharine casey chose Fairmont Hot Springs

We absolutely love this cabin!! After living in this cabin 50% of the year, we made a decision to fully move to the city (calgary) so our children can attend a city school and enjoy city activities. We still go up a lot to have family fun times, but not as much as we had hoped. Now You get to enjoy all that it has to offer!!

What makes this cabin unique

Situated between the Purcell and Rocky Mountains this cabin has it all!! Reclaimed hardwood floors, character logs and comfy beds... It's a true Canadian experience.

Perfect family vacation cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family (cousins and grandparents) spent a week at this gorgeous cabin. With kids aged 5, 8 and 10, there was never a shortage of fun things to do (yard games, trampoline, hot tub and playground) and explore. The cabin is warm, clean and cozy, inspiring you to want to slow down and enjoy a good book or, for the kids, draw pictures of cabin life and nature. The lake is stunning and warm, and although not a beach, still provides kids with a safe place to enjoy the water. Bring a dingy or paddle board along and the kids won't miss the beach. Great family memories from this Columbia Lake vacation!

That was our second stay in the cabin. First time was in January 2017 and right away we decide to stay here during the summer. Cabin is beautiful, very kids friendly . Great communication from the owners . Will definitely recommend that place as a great cabin for a great time to spend. Lots of activities around to do with whole family.

Beautiful unique home!

Fantastic stay

  • 4 of 5

This property is fantastic! We were very comfortable during our stay. It had all the amenities we needed including a beautiful deck with hot tub and BBQ, a trampoline and play structure for the kids and a large fire pit. The property backs on to crown land and has a walking trail that leads through the forest, to a beautiful meadow and down to an area where you can over look the lake. Please note, you can't access the lake this way without climbing down a very steep grade and crossing train tracks. There is access to the lake through the community, down to an area where there are kayaks and paddle boats.

Katharine was a lovely to deal with and quick to respond while we were booking the property.

Owner's Response: Thank you Candra, We appreciated having you as guests too! We are lucky to share our cabin with people and families like you. We are also thrilled that our community area is so gorgeous. Remote.. but not too remote! Our cabin is the perfect blend of quality, but without losing out on "that cabin" feel! Happy to have you back anytime.

Great Family Reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We organized a family reunion - my parents, siblings, and our children last summer. Had a great time, and plenty of room for all. Beautiful area, amazing house, plenty of sleeping spaces. Owners were very friendly and flexible. We ended up driving for beach and lake swimming, but not too far away.

Perfect Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a more perfect place for our family to enjoy a break!! The cabin itself is gorgeous and well equipped, including toys and children's books. The yard with its large deck (and comfortable furniture!), sand box, swing set and hot tub was great for the whole family to enjoy and relax. We loved the trail beside the house and each day we hiked for hours, soaking in the beautiful scenery. Not only was this a great spot for a family vacation, it would be perfect for couples too!

The owner was very quick to respond to any emails and calls and we appreciated how good she was to work with!

We definitely will be keeping this home in mind for future holidays and recommending it to our friends!!
