Welcome to the Twisted Timber Guest House! Your hosts, Andre & Susan Labine, invite you to stay.
The home is a unique custom-built timber frame home designed as a guest house and was completed in 2004. The timbers are recycled from a demolished grain elevator. The timberframe was designed and erected by Julian and Trudy Gauthier of Mira Timberframe whose speciality includes using reclaimed timbers when these are available.
Guests can enjoy their own privacy. We have two guest rooms, and each features a king size bed, a 4-piece bath with towel warmers, and personal bathrobes. Our home also features a fireplace in the grand common room. outdoor wood-burning fireplace and plans are underway to complete a traditional Finnish style sauna that can be used by our guests.
Our home is located within the city limits in a quiet neighbourhood and about a 15-20 minute walk to Historic Downtown Fernie. We are located 400 feet up the slope of Mount Fernie with great views of the Elk River, Fernie Golf Course and downtown Fernie. There are panoramic views from our home of the mountains and their spectacular 9000 feet peaks that surround Fernie. We are a seven-minute drive to Fernie Alpine Resort with the some of the best powder skiing in Canada.
We have experienced guest houses in our travels around the world. We understand what makes a quality guesthouse and the needs of our guests. Our comfortable common room is full of reading material from our travels.
We can help guests with their vacation plans at any time of year. We are experienced skiers and hikers and are familiar with many unique locations in the Fernie area.
Susan is well known for her gourmet cooking and her unique menu of breakfasts that will help guests off to a great day, whatever activities are planned.
Twisted Timber is a non-smoking residence and pets are not permitted.
We love to share with our guests the story of our timber frame home and the reason for the name “Twisted Timber” guesthouse.
