Arriving at Begbie Views Retreat means your holiday has officially begun, take a deep breath of the fresh mountain air. With clear skies you will be greeted by the stunning and awe-inspiring views of Mount Begbie. As you pull up the driveway there is a garage located on the right hand side that can host two vehicles. The driveway has adequate room to fit a variety of vehicles and trailers. So if you are coming with your snowmobile trailers, this house has plenty of parking for all.
A drying room is located off of the garage. This is a designated room for all of your outside gear. Drop off your boots, gloves and hats in this room and put them on later, dry, warm and ready for your next adventure. A mud room brings you into the property, followed by a washer and dryer for your use.
Step into your fully-stocked kitchen that has all the amenities you need to cook the perfect meal in your vacation home. There are two ovens, so it is ideal for those family holidays where you are cooking large meals for the whole group. A breakfast bar sits facing into the kitchen so the chefs of the bunch can be joined by others. A little coffee nook sits in the corner by the grand arched windows. This is my favorite place in the whole house. Make a pot of coffee, grab your mug and cozy up at the comfy chair to watch the sunrise over the mountains. There is an amazing view from every window at Begbie Views Retreat.
The dining area has a table long enough to seat everyone. This is where everyone can come together at meal times and share stories of their heli-skiing adventure, or discussing their favorite alpine run at the resort. The dining room is also home to the inside, wood-burning, fireplace. Get the fire roaring and have everyone sit around for a wonderful family dinner. Don’t feel like cooking every night? We understand, and have a long list of private chefs that can come to cater your evening meal. Inquire within when you book. There is also a BBQ to make life easier for you.
The living room and TV room are located on the other side of the kitchen. The TV room has a comfortable sectional sofa that also converts into a sofa bed for extra sleeping room. This TV room can be closed off and made more private if needed. The views from the living room alone are enough to make you want to stay curled up on the sofa all morning. Tall floor to ceiling shelves in both the living room and TV room are full of books, games and activities for the kids. Don’t worry if you forgot your book this holiday, we have you covered.
Heading up the staircase you will get to the upper level of the property that contains all the bedrooms. Each room offers its own fantastic views, comfortable beds, and ample space to unpack and unwind. The first bedroom is the Master room, it has a King bed, direct views of Mount Begbie, a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom. Along the corridor you will find another bathroom that will be used for the rest of the bedrooms. There are 3 more Queen bedrooms and another King bedroom on this upper level. The second King bedroom also has an office desk.
At the end of the corridor is the office. This substantially sized room has 3 office desks. If you are working remotely, on a Corporate Retreat or still home-schooling the children at this time, this property is for you. With high-speed WIFI, a vast amount of desk space and a printer, this property makes it easy to work away. This space could also be used for a private at-home yoga session, or we can arrange at-home massages in this area as well.
On the lower level of this property is where a lot of the fun is to be had! There is a grand playroom & media room. An enormous sectional makes this the ultimate movie room for the whole family. The sofa can convert either into a sofa bed, or just open it up to fit the whole group on at once. This property is set up so that everyone in your group has a place to enjoy themselves at this home. One of the coolest features of this playroom is the Air Hockey table. A cupboard in the playroom holds a number of games, toys and yoga matts all for your use.
Wrapping around the outside of this property is a huge network of snowshoeing trails. Snowshoes will be available for your use at the property. Our on-site host will point out to you where to head off into the woods to explore. We also have radios that we recommend you use if heading out to snowshoe or cross country ski along your own private trails.
From the warmth of the 8-person, salt water hot tub, enjoy watching the sun set behind the mountain and the stars becoming more vibrant. On really clear nights, you can see the milky way all the way along the valley and watch the shooting stars overhead. The salt water hot tub is free of chemicals and the perfect end to a day on the mountains, your legs will thank you.
Tne of the most amazing features of this home is the outdoor fireplace. This beautifully landscaped fire pit is the ultimate gathering place. Our on-site host will have the wood cut and the fire set for when you want it. Make some hot chocolate and get the marshmallows out, this fireplace will have you making s’mores and staying outside until the sun goes down. There is plenty of space for everyone outside with a large yard that can be the perfect place to build snowmen, ride sleds and start an epic snowball fight.
The home sits on a large acreage that is private and secluded from the main bulk of the city. However, it is still only a 7 minute drive to Revelstoke Mountain Resort and a 15 minute drive into Revelstoke’s downtown core, where you will be greeted with a huge variety of amazing restaurants and bars. I am more than happy to share with you my favorites.
Our on-site host will either greet you when you arrive, or the next morning. We work around you and your plans at Begbie Views Retreat. You will be provided with a full tour of the property and some additional tips and information about both the home and Revelstoke. Make sure to ask Chris about his favorite ski runs at the resort, he has some great local knowledge he can share. Chris will also be available throughout your stay if you would like any assistance with booking Ski School, First Tracks, Rental and a number of other activities. Just inquire within when you book and we will provide you with a long list of additional activities and addons for your trip. The majority of the stay you will be left to your own devices.
Our concierge service is also provided to all guests who book with Begbie Views Retreat. Order your food shop ahead of time and we can have it unloaded at the property for your arrival. We are available to you to make any restaurant reservations, or activity and transportation bookings. If you have any further requests, inquire within. We are always happy to assist.
