Self check-inCheck yourself in with the lockbox.

The Brown house was designed by architect Lisa Webb and built by my husband Richard. I was the hammer hand but pretty hopeless as I was pregnant throughout the three year build. We chose to build the house from untreated Douglas Fur and Pine and used natural waxes to seal the timber where necessary.
We love our home we built and enjoy going there with our boys to go skiing,fishing hiking and cycling. We hope you will enjoy it too. there is so much beauty in this pristine environment

This is a great house, in a great location. Quiet, peaceful, warm and sunny - a fun space, with everything you’d need for a relaxing time away. Great communication from the hosts too (thanks Janet!). Definitely recommend, and would go back.

What a beautiful home and location. This place is pretty special. Great views of the mountains, cosy and amazing amenities. The shower is dreamy and the bath lovely too. The kitchen was great to cook in. Huge dvd collection. Loved it.
