In the heart of Fairmont Hot Springs, on a very quiet cul de sac, this lovely cabin features a huge deck for relaxing and absorbing nature. Take full advantage of the BBQ on the deck, grilling your family's vacation favorites while you reminisce about the fun you had swimming in Windermere and Columbia Lakes, or mountain biking and hiking nearby trails.
Prepare your morning coffee, take a seat outside to read one of the books from the bookshelf, and savor the peace and quiet of your surroundings.

In the winter, the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort Ski Area offers skiing, snowboarding and tubing - an excellent family friendly activity you will love. The terrain park is lots of fun too. The top of the ski hill is exactly 8 minutes drive from the cabin. This hill is perfect for family skiing, and the lessons for children on offer are excellent. We highly recommend them. Minutes from the cabin are many beautiful snowshoeing trails, and a fun hill for sledding. You may skate on the skating pond by the tennis courts at the resort, or go to Windermere and skate there too. Winter is fantastic in Fairmont - so gorgeous, snowy and very quiet. Perfect for families. For a more challenging ski hill, Panorama is a skier's paradise.
Come home and warm up in front of the wood burning fireplace. Roast marshmallows, or make smores. Plenty of wood on-site to keep the fireplace burning brightly.
