“Couldn't ask for anything better”
I stayed here for the May long weekend for a bachelor party and then tacked on another couple nights with my significant other for the start of our Okanogan holiday. For both occasions, this facility was absolutely perfect. It accommodated 12 buddies easily, with lots of use of the kitchen, movie theater, hot tub, and plenty of important 'board meetings' at the giant dining table. After that, it was an amazingly luxurious couples experience, it was almost a challenge to make use of everything available. Although the winter season is prime time for a place like this, if you're looking for privacy and no concern about bothering neighbours, the shoulder season (spring and fall) can't be beat. This was by far the best place at big white (and arguably Canada) for accommodating groups of friends, large families, or discerning couples for an unforgettable holiday experience.
Response from the owner Thanks Graham for the review. So glad you got to experience Crescendo for two very different types of events/vacations, and that BOTH worked out for you quite well. We’re in the process of making Crescendo even that much more spectacular for the summer season. Just added outdoor furniture and a Gas Fire Table. Expanding the patio and pool areas for next summer, too, with seating, built-in BBQ and Island, and more. Look for pics about this on our native website and on Facebook as this occurs.
“Amazing Place for a Wedding!”
Crescendo was the perfect place for our wedding, which we held just before Big White opened for its ski season. All of our guests just raved about the beautiful setting and about the spectacular chalet. We had over 80 guests throughout the chalet, with room to have invited a few more. The ceremony was beautiful in the Grande Room, with the picturesque view of the Monashees in the background. Everything went extremely smoothly thanks to the caretaker. The caterers were clearly at home with Crescendo’s large commercial Kitchen for preparing the food. The Media Room, with its separate bar area, was perfect for serving refreshments, and we were able to stream our personalized slide show to the big screen in that room. There was ample space for everyone to mingle and dance throughout the night, and oh did we dance! With the ceremony, the reception, and the accommodation all under the same roof, Crescendo was the perfect place to have our all-in-one event. Crescendo helped us to create the stylish, yet intimate, atmosphere we had wanted, resulting in our special day being even more elegant and beautiful than we had hoped. All of our guests and families just loved Crescendo. What more can I say? We highly recommend Crescendo for anyone looking for a special and unique setting for a wedding, or for just about any celebration. We will have fond memories of this chalet for the rest of our lives. Krista and Cal
Response from the owner Hi Krista / Cal - Thanks much for the great review. I saw some pics (and the video) from the wedding. Krista you looked gorgeous! Cal, not so much (just kidding Cal). What a handsome couple. I saw pics of Cal's dad at the wedding too. Wow! Incredible that he was able to get the medical clearance to attend. So glad all worked out well for you both. Very warm regards, Mitch
This house is unreal! The pictures do NOT do this house justice. From the showers to the surround sound to the theater you will not stay in a more "cater to your needs" home away from home!! 5 Floors of AWESOME!! The weather sucked during our stay. We were unlucky with bad timing and it rained the whole time, but didn't damper our mood :) We ALL had a blast !!
Response from the owner Hi - Thanks SO MUCH for this wonderful review. I didn't see it until just now, or I would have responded earlier. I hope you'll get a chance to experience Crescendo sometime during ski season, as well. It is a totally different feel during that time. Warm Regards, Mitch
“Amazing trip @ Big White”
We could not have been happier with the experience we had at Crescendo. We have rented many properties before but none compare to the cleanliness and amenities found here. No detail was left unthought of...down to the kitchen coming well equipped with all of the appliances, spices and cookware needed to make a meal(s) for a very large group. (Thankfully!) Loved the convenience of being in a true ski on ski-off with quick easy access to the lodge, market and bar. There is no question that I would recommend the Crescendo,.. I know I'll be back next year!
Response from the owner Thanks Kelly! Every time I return to Crescendo I have so many of those same thoughts. First, I don’t think I could ever be happier than when I reflect on my experiences at Crescendo. Second, what a difference it makes when staying at a TRUE ski-in/ski-out home. Thanks much for the kind comments.
“This place has something for everyone!!!”
This is the total package for the entire family. The ease to ski on and off the mountain right to the lifts is incredible and gives the chance for parents with young children to take turns enjoying the powder. While at the house there is entertainment from movie theatre to relax or ping pong for tournament. After a long day on the mountain and games on the table take an indoor or outdoor soak in the spa. For those who are still up for some more entertainment take a simple walk to the village and enjoy the night life! I highly recommend and look forward to a future visit.
Response from the owner Hey Tom – Thanks for the great review. Convenience, convenience, convenience! Really, it’s one of the main ingredients that goes into a ski vacation. That factor is hard to describe about Crescendo, but so readily experienced by all when there. Cheers - Mitch
“Best time ever!!!”
Had a wonderful time at Crescendo. This is my 2nd annual trip and this time we had a group of 18 with kids. No issues with space and we all stayed comfortably. We stayed downstairs in the new converted glass room which had options to turn seating into twins beds, super comfy and like always this place is clean. My daughter got ski lessons and she said the staff was very nice and helpful, and it's very affordable. This is the best place to stay for a ski in/ ski out in all of Big White.
Response from the owner Thanks Jeff!. So glad you got to experience our new glass-walled Game Room/Bedroom. I understand the snow was pretty incredible – AGAIN – for you all this year. Dr. Mitch
“5 star plus accommodations!!”
The accommodations at the Crescendo were truly 5 star plus! The mountain's grooming staff even packed the path every day in and out of the residence to the adjacent ski run. Truly ski in and ski out (which most accommodations say they are-- but really aren't.
Response from the owner Hey Dave - I TOTALLY agree with you about the Ski-in/out accommodations. I think that most places that make that claim define ski-in/out as the following: "The condo is close enough to the slope that you can can walk there from your unit, carrying skis and two kids, without needing to be resuscitate more than once." Crescendo, on the other hand, is truly ski-in/out - as you noted. Thanks for allowing us to share Crescendo with you. Mitch
Greetings at the door ski equipment carried up and put in the locker what more could you ask for! How about two convection ovens and a six burner gas cook top! Or maybe skiing out from the front door on a groomed path done each morning by the machine operator! Not enough can be said about how great this place is for making your stay awesome. Thanks
Response from the owner Shahn – Thanks for the great review. Yes, we began the courtesy Valet service at the start of last ski season. Admittedly, it has been a big hit. We really do aim to please, and we appreciate all of our guests’ suggestions. By the way, I loved your stainless steel flatware jewelry that you’ve posted on Etsy through your company name “About Tine.” Now I have two additional things to look forward to: to your enjoying Crescendo in the future, and to my seeing more of your designs on Etsy. Thanks again. Mitch
“!!!Over the top accommodation!!!”
To say we loved this place is an understatement... its spectacular - a must to experience first hand. It's not many times in our life time that we get to experience this type of luxury. The kitchen is set up beautifully and completely. Having all the spices and "staples" was a treat. The staff was extremely helpful - from assisting us to bring in our gear, to showing us around to ensuring the place was in immaculate shape. We did manage to get in some awesome skiing (big White is the best!) even though there were almost too many things to do and experience inside - hot tubing, outdoor pool, games - just looking at the scenery out the window. We're hoping we can get back next year and share the experience with even more members of our ski club. Thanks Crescendo!!!
Response from the owner Hi Karri – I just loved having you all stay at Crescendo. I also appreciated your review of Crescendo. Over the years, both a part of the ski club and apart from the ski club, I know you’ve stayed in a number of excellent ski chalets. To rate Crescendo so highly, then, says a lot. Again, many thanks! Mitch
“Amazing Ski Vacation”
Thanks so much for letting use your home this past week. Like last year, we had a great time-it works so well for our families. The new game room with the glass wall was perfect for three of the kids. It was their own little space that gave them that little bit of independence. It made Crescendo seem so much bigger. Thank you very much for this! We really enjoy the location and Crescendo. We could go on and on... The pool is just wonderful. It is so much fun to swim under water to get to the outside! Thank you too for supplying the pack and play. This worked perfect! Nothing's firmed up yet, but we're already talking about wanting to come back next year!
Response from the owner Hey Bob - Thanks for the great review. So glad you were able to experience our new Game Room and its ability to convert instantly to a bedroom (with 4 twin beds) via the sliding glass wall. That project was quite the undertaking this past summer, but that space finally gets used in the way we had intended when we originally built Crescendo (not to mention the glass wall being so gorgeous and so damn convenient). Yes, I'll also take credit for the design of the indoor-outdoor pool/jacuzzi. Even in warm weather, let alone snow, I've always been such a wuss when it came to leaving a pool or a jacuzzi. Having to brave the cold just takes way too much away from the experience. And, of course, theirs the usual, "Who's going to reset the jets?" when they time down. So, I agree. There is nothing like entering and exiting the pool/jacuzzi from a toasty room (upper 70s Fahrenheit). If there is anything we can do to make future stays at Crescendo and Big White even that much better for you all, please let us know. Many of our amenities, appliances, and upgrades at Crescendo, in fact, came about from comments or requests from our guests. Thanks again, Mitch
