About the property

In Winter you can drive right up to Strathcona vacation Rental and then ski out onto the slope to catch the high speed 6 seater 'Hawk' chairlift, which is just outside our front door! We are the second closest ski chalet to the Nordic Lodge and the cross country ski trails.

In Summer, enjoy Mt. Washington Alpine Resort and the beach is only 30 minutes away! The entrance to Strathcona Provincial Park is right on our doorstep. You can enjoy a relaxed stroll on the unique boardwalk trails or take an adventurous hike. There are many marked trails through the forests and open meadows leading right up to pristine alpine lakes with views of Vancouver Island’s snow capped mountains.

Overall our stay was ok. The mattress in the master bedroom and the 2nd bedroom definitely need to be replaced - none of us had a good nights sleep cause the mattress is extremely uncomfortable. It made it worse for my husband who has a ski accident injury on his left shoulder. We actually wanted to cancel this trip because of his ski accident but the owner did not accept our cancellation inspite of sending them a note directly from the doctor that my husband has been seeing since his accident. In fact, they did not even respond to us after we sent them the doctors note. My husband's arm actually got worse over the course of 5 days that we spent here more so because of the mattress. So much for a ski vacation!!!

Great location!

Owner's Response: Dear Sujit, We are surprised to hear that the mattresses need replacing, we replaced the one in the master bedroom with a new one in early January 2017, the mattress in the second bedroom was replaced with a new one in February 2018. We regularly stay in the property when it is vacant and personally find the beds very comfortable. We have a cancellation policy we (and VRBO) adhere to, we did reply to your request to cancel, you were free to cancel the reservation if you wanted to. We were disappointed with a 2** review, out of the other 83 reviews - we have received 69 ***** reviews and 14 **** reviews. Yes, you are correct – it is a great location, probably the best on Mount Washington! We both hope your husbands arm is getting better. John and Sue

Excellent Accomodations & Fantastic Skiing!

  • 5 of 5

Two families (9 people) shared this accomodation. It was perfect! We loved having a table big enough for everyone to sit at for meals and end of the day family game nights! There is tons of dishes and kitchen gadgets to use when making meals. Loved that there was a crock pot! The full size fridge, stove, washing machine and dryer were awesome to have. Nice that there were extra blankets, bedding and towels for everyone to use. Being able to keep our ski gear in the garage was great! The location was perfect! Gear up and walk across the road to the Hawk Chair. So easy to ski back for lunch break! The ski hill was great for all levels! Lots of runs to try out! We would definitely recommend this accomodation! The owners were very quick to reply to questions and great to rent from! Thank you we hope to be back next year!
