Come and join us!
Our variable speed SwimGym allows stationary lap swimming, against a current.
A 38' Grill (42 burgers), built into & surrounded by granite-topped bar seating.
Notice the pool's perimeter?  Yep, it's geothermally heated to snow-melt temps.
Our indoor/outdoor Pool/Jacuzzi (with bar stools) is truly extraordinary.
Our indoor/outdoor pool/jacuzzi is equally extraordinary in the summer, too.
Guests enjoy Crescendo year-round.  Late spring to early fall are favorites.
Want to enjoy your friends near the Jacuzzi, but not in the Jacuzzi?  Then ...
... you'll appreciate the seating there:  especially after the snow's melted.
Just take a look at our Outdoor Play areas, where you'll find resort-like comfort.
We've leveled, tiered, & landscaped all around the Pool and Patio areas.
Whether for an event (e.g., wedding) or for an intimate romantic dinner for 2, ...

Just off the entryway, our Den sports a custom couch, a 47' TV, an Xbox OneX, and a game's table.
With its movable glass wall, our Den can be made into a private room.
When needed, our Den's custom couch easily converts into a private bedroom:   4 twin beds (with draw

Just across the hall from the ski entry bathroom suite are two of our dedicated Guest Bedrooms.
We get a kick out of the gasps from our guests, the first time they see the room.
Both of the Guest Bedrooms have their own ensuites and Lofts.
Each of the Lofts in the Guest Bedrooms have two twin beds, with storage underneath.
1/2 level up from the Ski Hall, the spiral staircase ends at the Master Suite.
Here we go.  The entry to paradise.
So many windows, so few walls for art.  Notice where we placed our Gustav Klimt (The Kiss)?
By itself, Crescendo's Master Suite IS a private retreat.
Nice!
Every room at Crescendo has spectacular views, and the Master Suite is no exception.
Each bedroom has its own private ensuite, but the Master Ensuite is especially sweet.

“Awesome mountain chalet”
Reviewed 27 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The weekend was awesome and the place surpassed all of our expectations. I was very happy with everything, especially the well stocked kitchen. It was an excellent place to celebrate but also relax. Dan was very helpful as well and came by to check on the pool and make sure everything was great. I would not hesitate to recommend crescendo to anybody heading to big white.
Thank you.

“What A Place!”
Reviewed 2 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We recently stayed at Crescendo with 2 other families.
There were 15 of us in total and we had more than enough space.
The kids loved it. The movie room was a hit. And the hot tub.
The owner Mitch was incredibly helpful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Crescendo.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed 22 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Staying here was an incredible experience! From the location right in the heart of the mountain, to each and every amazing room, to the views from all the windows, the luxury and detail throughout the home, etc., it really was a special place to stay. The website was very accurate in the description and pictures of this home. I appreciated how clean it was, and ready for our stay. It easily accommodated a large group, but also felt cozy even when most of the group left. I would highly recommend it.

“Great hub for weekend wedding festivities”
Reviewed 17 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed at Crescendo for our wedding in August. The mountain has started staying open in the summer months only recently, which means it's basically deserted. The house had everything we needed to host a couple of events. While only a handful of our guests actually stayed at the house, we comfortably hosted nearly 50 people for cocktails and a barbecue. The other guests were all able to find affordable accommodation elsewhere on the mountain - even at the last minute. The house served as a perfect launch point for golf, vineyards, and other activities down in Kelowna. Mitch and his staff were extremely accommodating. "The house is built for fun" was a line we heard a few times. As long as your guests are respectful, they are open to the house being used to its full potential as a great place for celebration and mingling. We had our dinner at the Globe restaurant - which served an incredible meal and is only a few hundred meters away - and then walked back to the house with our guests where a bartender kept everyone happy all night long.

Thanks Lori/Alex for the great review. I love the things you highlighted in your review. Yes, the house was definitely built for fun, and to assist with creating lasting, memorable experiences. It sounds like you all used the house to its full potential, too, which we love to see.

Using Crescendo, too, as a launching point for activities surrounding Kelowna and the Okanagan area, too, is not only inventive and clever, but extremely practical. Where else can 16 or so golfing buddies stay under the same roof. Arrangements with Discover Okanagan Tours (@skiandwine), in fact, can be made to shuttle the entire group to/from Crescendo and Kelowna events.

True, too, that summers at Big White have traditionally been rather tranquil, to say the least. While next summer (2017) will be Big White’s grand opening for mountain biking, I do think Big White will remain a rather tranquil summer resort for some time.

Thanks for taking the time to post a review about us. Thanks, too, for the thoughtful review.

Best!

“Impressive”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Our weekend at Crescendo was wonderful! Mitch was always accessible in advance to help us plan our trip. Sheila gave us an incredible orientation upon arrival. Discover Okanagan provided impeccable service during our wine tour from start to finish. Jude and her staff from the Globe went far above and beyond what we had expected for the catered dinner. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us and connecting us with so many wonderful people who made our weekend perfect. The guest of honour was in awe. All of our guests stated that the pictures do not do this home justice. It was better than they expected! We would certainly recommend Crescendo to others!
