Wayward Chalet
Reviewed 13 September 2011

We stayed at the Wayward chalet in March 2011 for a ski get away. We loved the location, very convienient to get to the ski hill, amazing views of the mountains! We had a great time with our friends, large open kitchen, great for all the couples to share cooking. It was really nice to deal with the owner directly who was very accomodating! Panorama lovers from Ponoka AB.

We had a group of 8 friends for a ski trip. Lucky enough we found the wayward chalet and booked it as soon as possible. As soon as we got to the chalet we were not disappointed. It is actually nicer then the pictures on the internet, which was a pleasent surprise.

The hot tub was fantastic both after the driver from edmonton (6.5 hrs) and after the great day of skiing. We definately got our use out of it.

The chalet is set up pefect with more them enough confortable beds. The large kitchen table was also put to good use with plenty of room for card games.

Perfect peaceful location close to the ski hill but far enough to be silent.

Terry was very easy to deal with and made sure we knew how to get to the chalet and what we needed. Will stay again for sure.

We had a wonderful time in Panorama while staying at the Wayward Lodge. We were a bit concerned how we would fit 5 kids(6 and younger) and 5 adults, but it was fantastic! The bedrooms were great with the bunk beds, and the Master bedroom with en-suite, the loft ,plus the sofa beds in the living room were plenty of room for all of us.
The kids enjoyed watching cartoons in the living room in the morning with the large TV and DVD player, and the adults enjoyed cooking in the well-equipped kitchen.
It was a huge bonus to have the deck in the back with a BBQ and hot tub. What a way to enjoy the evenings!
The house has EVERYTHING you would need for a family vacation.
The house is a short walk to any thing you want to do in Panorama. It is such a beautiful area and we all enjoyed seeing all of the wildlife hanging out around us.
Terry was very easy to deal with and we are already talking about our next trip up to the Wayward Lodge.
We will be back year after year and would highly recommend this stay with anyone.

We stayed at he Wayward Chalet over the July weekend. What an amazing place!!! We had 12 people in our group & had concerns that it might be a little crowded. We were all presently surprised by how easily the Chalet handled our large group, with a very large kitchen/dining room and more than enough comfortable sleeping accomodation.

Being almost right on the golf course, we were able to sleep in a bit & still make our early morning tee-time at Grey Wolf. After the round, we lounged in the hot tub, soaking up the outdoors while healing our sore muscles.

Invermere is only a quick (and beautiful) drive away for anything you need or night out on the town.

Great place, great value & Terry was a pleasure to deal with. We look very forward to our return trip....

I was fortunate to stay at the Wayward Chalet as a member of a group of 10 friends looking for a vacation from city life in Edmonton.

The Wayward Chalet was more than enough space for us to have fun, rest and do what we needed to to make the weekend truly enjoyable. The chalet is an easy walk to the chairlifts of Panorama, giving you all the day and night benefits of being at the ski hill, but with the privacy of a secluded cabin.

We will definitely be going back to Panorama next year, and we hope we are lucky enough to stay at the Wayward Chalet again.

We rent a cabin every year somewhere in Alberta or Bc for a 4 days of snowboarding. As we always end up being a group of about 13 people, it is usually a lot of shopping before we find what we like.
This year, I was in charge of finding the cabin. We decided to go to Panorama as none of us had been before and we like to try new places every year. We had the best weekend since we started taking these short trips. The mountain is wonderful, the snow was perfect and the weather, not too cold, not too warm. Just perfect.

I choose the Wayward Chalet because the price is awesome and it seemed big enough to hold all of us crazy frenchies!!!! The rooms are very comfortable and the kitchen, as they say on the website is perfect as it is big and every party always ends up in the kitchen. I almost forgot, the hot tub!!!! Really important feature because you need one after a day outside snowboarding.

If you are planning a weekend in the Rockies and are thinking about going to Panorama. You should try the Wayward Chalet!!!

It was our best snowboarding weekend in a long time!

The chalet was clean, large but very cozy - two fireplaces, huge kitchen and lots of room in a beautiful area. We had our family and friends and had a great time. We would definately stay there again. Hot tub on the back deck was great after skiing. Jody
