We have a beautiful family home situated just 2 minutes from the Revelstoke Mountain Resort - North America's Longest Vertical Ski Resort - in fantastic British Columbia. Our home has 4 bedrooms, and two very large living spaces with additional dining room and large kitchen. Two full bathrooms, with another separate toilet. We have a modern laundry, plus basement with a climbing gym! We have a hot-tub and a fully fenced yard.
We have two wood fire places, as well as electric furnace. A large upstairs patio with double french-doors leading off each bedroom. Downstairs verandahs and a BBQ area means there are lots of places to sit and enjoy the mountain views.
We are in the quiet suburb of Revelstoke called Arrow Heights, which is still just a 30 minute walk or a 5 minute bike ride to down-town. The world-class ski resort, Revelstoke Mountain Resort, with North America's longest vertical is just a 2 minutes drive away. Revelstoke gets metres of snow each year, with an average of 12-18 feet, so that means a 'real' white Christmas! (Don't worry: we have a snow-blower!) Bush walking trails lead straight from our house, with an off-leash dog walking area is nearby. World class mountain biking and rock-climbing is only minutes away as well as two great National Parks for hiking trails (Glacier National Park and Revelstoke National Park). Cross Country skiing is very accessible, as is snow-shoeing and tobogganing. You will not run out of things to do - in the summer or winter season!
There are wonderful lakes in the summer for swimming, canoeing, boating and fishing.
There are few different natural hot springs (both commerical and "natural") nearby as well.
In the summer (July/August) there is free live enteraintment in Grizzly Plaza every night.
The Rocky-Mountaineer train runs right through Revelstoke in the summer. We have 5 museums and free live music in the plaza every night in the summer. The friendly townspeople make this a very welcoming place to come and visit at any time of year.
The down-town core offers lovely restaurants and bars. Depending on the season live music and activities are always occurring down-town making it a very lively hub.
We are just 3 hours from Banff and 1.5 hours from Golden. Just 1.5 hours from Silverstar Skiing and Biking, as well as 2.5 hours to Kamloops and Kelowna.
We love Revelstoke and we think you will fall in the love with the place too!

We are a family of two adults, both in our 30s, two children (a two-year-old and a 1-month old) and a large dog (Husky-Shepherd) called Marshall. Anita is a teacher, although currently a stay-at-home Mum and Blair is a carpenter. We enjoy mountain biking, rock climbing and snow-boarding and so that is why we moved here! We are all very active Revelstokians and can easily help you feel at home with lots of advice, maps and suggestions of things to do and see while you are here. We are originally from Australia, but are now Canadian permanent residents. As we have children we can offer a variety of children's toys/objects/tools!
