Description from owner


If you want to be in the midst of it all, while getting away from it all, our Chalet may just be the perfect place for your family vacation, guys weekend, girls retreat, hunting trip, or Kootenay adventure.

Located only 35 minutes from both Cranbrook and Fernie, B.C., and a mere 10-minute walk to the blue-green waters of Lake Koocanusa, Bolter Chalet is one of those special places where families can connect, adventurers can explore, hunters can reload, and all others can just be…present.

*The Space *

Situated on a scenic farm and surrounded by mountain views, our well-thought out, modern and functional log chalet accommodates up to eight guests and offers every amenity you require throughout your stay. It was built and designed with quality and functionality in mind, from construction to superior furnishing.

Both quiet and private, the solar-heated and fully-furnished chalet features a top floor with 2 bedrooms (sleeps 4), bathroom with shower, and a thoughtfully-stocked kitchen complete with dishwasher and microwave. There is a cozy wood-burning fireplace, access to laundry facilities, DVD and TV, and a wrap-around sun deck with a majestic mountain view.

The ground-floor has 2 additional bedrooms (one with 2 twin beds and the other a large room with a queen bed), dining area and kitchenette, as well as one bathroom with a tub and direct access to the laundry facilities.

PLEASE NOTE: Unless otherwise requested, the first 4 guests will be accommodated on the top floor (2 bedrooms, one bathroom). The ground-floor will be opened for 5 or more guests or if requested we'd be happy to get extra rooms ready for the appropriate rental fee.

If you are looking to combine business and pleasure, or work from a place that inspires creativity, our Chalet checks all the boxes. Access Wi-Fi and connect to the world, while enjoying the peace and quiet of nature. Go for a walk before your meeting. Do yoga on the deck before tackling that deadline. Grab a glass of wine, take in the mountain views, and catch up on your emails. Write. Create. Innovate -- then go explore the farm.

Feel some dirt. Smell the grass. Listen to the birds.

*Other Things to Note*

For guests staying a minimum of three nights we offer a welcome package of farm fresh eggs, locally home-made bread, organic butter and milk.

Guests also have the option of Pre-ordering meat for your stay. Enjoy naturally grown pork, chicken or beef born, raised and produced on our family farm.

It’s a perfect place to take the wife, the family, or escape with the guys. We welcome responsible use of all-terrain vehicles, which can be driven from the back-country directly to and from the chalet.

Interaction with guest

Your hosts, Astrid and Mathias, have extensive experience in the hospitality industry and a strong background in hotel management. Before relocating to Canada from Europe almost 20 years ago, they managed a chain of luxury hotels in Europe in the family of Relais & Châteaux. Both have a degree in hotel management and tourism. Their history in high-end hospitality inspires them to deliver a unique and enjoyable accommodation experience for those seeking a Kootenay getaway. Guests will enjoy the fact they have their own privacy and space, but certainly Astrid and Mathais are happy to offer area tips and answer any questions.
