I rented this place for my husband and 6 of his buddies for a guys ski trip. They loved it. Used the hot tub every night for aching muscles. The owner was more than gracious, as when they asked for a garlic press and coffee grinder, it appeared on the door step the next day. Don't hesitate to stay here. I booked privately through the owner and he was very prompt with all my questions.
Big Bear Chalet is located 3 minutes from the hill. The house is brand new, equipped with new appliances and amenities. Hot Tub, BBQ, WiFi, Outdoor fireplace, Laundry, Cable TV etc. etc. all worked top notch, excellent value for the money. Big spacious place, 7 guys each had their own bed, there's room for more (for couples). The owner lives nearby and hooked-up a keg for us - the tap is right in the kitchen Island. Fabulous local Begbie Brewery beer (we had the Cream Ale). The garage is heated, great for drying and storing your equipment. The owner even has boot & glove dryers installed. The owner lives nearby, just ask if you need something and he's right there. Zero hassles, zero issues, will absolutely come back here.
It was an absolute pleasure to stay at Big Bear Chalet. The hosts have built a beautiful home and crested a relaxing environment. From the entertainment space to the hot tub, we enjoyed evert part of our stay. Can't wait to visit again!
Wonderful ski chalet, located close to the hill. Comfortable beds, great hot tub, wide open kitchen all added to the trip. Only 2 things prevented a 5 star rating: the oven is horrible, and the shower upstairs, although very aesthetically pleasing, didn't quite offer the shower experience. That's being VERY picky though.
I would suggest this place for families or groups, as we were able to sleep 6 adults, 2 pre-teens, and an infant QUITE comfortably.
Big Bear Chalet is a perfect place for large groups to stay while on a ski vacation. It's about a 4 minute drive to Revelstoke and equally close to town. The garage is perfectly organized with skiers in mind; equipped with ski racks, multiple boot heaters and tons of hooks for drying wet and snowy clothes. The rest of the house is equally suited to large groups with a great kitchen and living room that easily accommodations everyone. And to top it all off what better way to finish an epic ski day then to relax in the hot tub!
I stayed there for the month of January and WOW what a place! From the fully stocked kitchen to the giant couches and astonishing views of the mountains this house definitely is a place I'd like to return to! The location of the house is perfect for skiers and snowmobiles and is only a very short drive from revelstoke downtown! I highly recommend this house to large groups or a romantic getaway. The hot tub was amazing and the large elligant bathrooms are incredible. And not to mention the very large and well Laid out kitchen.
From the minute you book the house you will be happy. Everything is provided and made easy for your stay. The owner is very accommodating and experienced in renting the home. The house is very clean and brand new! I cant want to come back next winter. Thank you!
