Nice little town friendly people. Lots of charm. Mountains are beautiful. Only 1 day needed to see all the sights. We visited out of ski season. Early fall. Winter might be quite different.

Staff is friendly but they aren't set up for success with their systems and forms. Guy in front on me was buying a part for his bike and it wouldn't scan so... More

We had not been to Fernie before, but came here for a short summer getaway to relax.We had a great time, enjoyed the scenery and the trip up the mountain on the ski lift. We would like to come back and explore a bit more another time.

This is a very pet friendly hotel. They had a gift bag for our dog when we checked in. It is clean and comfortable beds. The staff was great and so was the price.

Not too sure if this where i visited but it looks like it. We did some zip lining along with a gondola ride to the top. Nice views there.
