Our home

This is a beautiful large vacation home; an historic country chalet built from pine logs in 1926. It has a spacious south facing terrace over-looking emerald-green Lake Edith (Glacier fed) with a view of a pink granite Pyramid Mountain (see pictures). It has 4 double bedrooms; a large central lounge/ reception room; separate dining room and kitchen with modern conveniences and 2 bathrooms. Outside there is a large meadow for playing boules / bocce or the Canadian game of horseshoes! The crystal clear lake is below the house and has a large sandy beach area that is perfect for swimming or sunbathing.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house is in the centre of Jasper National Park; the largest mountain park in Canada. Unlike the more famous Banff National Park to the south, Jasper Park has fewer tourists and is thus unspoiled and pristine.

The town of Jasper is located about 5 minutes from the house (by car). It is a typical small mountain village with shops catering to visitors.

The National Park that surrounds the town (and our house)has endless opportunities for sightseeing (mountains and icefields) hiking, swimming, horseback riding, white-water rafting, animal and bird watching.

The elk and coyotes often visit us at our house. They are not particularly dangerous but are wild, large animals and visitors should be cautious.
