Revelstoke, a year round vacation spot, is a mountain paradise high in the Kootenay Rockies and boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in all of British Columbia. Vacation rentals in Revelstoke range from family homes and quaint cottages to ski chalets and mountain cabins, providing a wide selection of vacation rentals for all vacationer preferences. Regardless the time of year, Revelstoke caters to its visitors and guarantees an incredible vacation experience.
Its rich heritage of native culture can be enjoyed and experienced by immersing yourself in the year-round pageants of history, arts, festivals and lively entertainment. Rent where you can get to know the local people and see the things that many “tourists” do not. Renting a home, cabin, chalet or condo is a more “local” experience than that of a hotel.
From your mountain cabin, enjoy the breathtaking views of rugged mountains, glistening glaciers, lush forests, tumbling waterfalls and crystal clear lakes -a photographer's paradise. Visit the Victorian era heritage buildings now being restored to their original splendor. Close to your ski chalet are a number of interesting museums, including the Railway Museum, the Revelstoke Museum and the famous Fireman's Museum.
Visit Craigdarroch Castle, an imposing Victorian mansion. Upon reaching the Tower, enjoy the panoramic views of Victoria, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the snow capped Olympic Mountains. A vacation cabin provides water enthusiasts the access to the many lakes, rivers and ocean inlets, the breathtaking views and the abundant wildlife. Rent a canoe and glide silently and effortlessly through morning mists and dense evergreen forests, enjoying the simple things in life, like the call of a loon or the splash of a jumping fish. Take a walking tour; there are many self guided theme tours, such as Happy Haunting and Forbidden City, both sure to be a favorite with kids and adults alike.
From your vacation cabin enjoy a unique and inimitable dining experience at a local restaurant; you have choices, anything from a raucous pub to an intimate candlelit dinner! Enjoy a local wine or brewpub ale with dinner. Partake of Asian delicacies from the second-oldest Chinatown on this continent's west coast. There is so much to choose from-food from around the world and under the sea! After lunch or dinner, explore the Inner Harbor in downtown Victoria or stroll through wood-blocked alleyways, the inner courtyard of the 1870s hotels, the once famous red light district.
The fun, adventure and the memories from America’s neighbor to the north will delight and enchant you and your family.
