Min. Nights Upon Request


This sprawling residence is nestled against an arresting mountain backdrop with unobstructed views of San Sophia's ridge and Ajax's peak. The chateau sits in a 2-acre estate tucked in a mature grove of alpine trees between Sundance and Double Cabins' ski runs. Enjoy the secluded mountain vibes and tranquil setting of Twin Elk, with easy ski access, eight bedrooms, and ten bathrooms spread out over 7,881 sq. ft. Past the charming rustic timber and stone façade, your dream vacation awaits!

The kitchen, dining, and living areas feature thick wood-beamed ceilings and glossy timber floors. Architectural detailing combined with Rocky Mountain-inspired décor adds a sophisticated and stylish touch to the open space. The living area has a beautiful wall of windows built to maximize the sweeping, soul-lifting views. Kick back and relax on a sumptuous couch after a day on the trails, with a roaring fireplace nearby, a majestic sunset, and a glass of wine in hand.

The formal dining table seats ten guests comfortably next to a toasty fireplace and inspires long cocktail hours and comfortable fireside chats. The gourmet kitchen built for a professional chef is complete with lots of marble and bespoke cabinetry. Premium stainless steel appliances enhance the kitchen's gourmet feel, while a large butler's pantry adds a practical edge to the beautifully streamlined space. The island bench provides a sociable center to the kitchen and doubles as a breakfast bar ideal for the kids. Sunny, modern, and big enough to cater for large gatherings- a dream for the serious cook.

Sliding-glass doors seamlessly connect the indoor-outdoor spaces and lead to a sun-dappled deck that encourages easy-style entertaining and long, al fresco lunches. Equipped with plenty of outside furniture, a grill, and a sunken hot tub nearby, this space is an oasis of relaxation for your entire crew.

With eight bedrooms, even the largest groups will have a complete sense of privacy and comfort. The sleeping spaces include three king suites, two queen suites, a bunk room with six beds, a small suite with a twin bed, and a full pilot's quarter-complete with a living room, a kitchenette, a king-size bed, and a bunk bed for extra sleeping space. Each bedroom has it's own spa-like bathroom with plenty of space for pampering. Bathrooms come with premium luxury amenities, step-in glass showers, and full vanities with gleaming granite countertops. The decadently spacious primary suite is luxuriously equipped with a walk-in wardrobe, a sumptuous king-size bed, flat-screen television, and a crackling fireplace with a cozy seating area. The primary room has access to an outside patio that leads to the sunken hot tub and captures sensational views. This suite features a gorgeous bathroom complete with a standalone soaking tub, a marble glass shower, and dual vanities with sprawling granite countertops. Enjoy the view while having a long relaxing soak in the luxurious bathroom.

Downstairs, a dedicated media room comes with a state-of-the-art audio-visual system and all the electronic gadgetry of a private cinema. This carpeted lounge room has a pool table, fireplace, a wet bar, and a massive television. Escape from hectic daily life in the media room and have friends over for a drink at the bar or watch movies in your private home theater. This dream home with a mix of old-world prestige and modern luxury has it all. Sipping martinis on the deck and popping downstairs for a ride on the slopes is what ski-side living is all about. If you want to elevate your mountain vacation to unprecedented heights, look no further than Twin Elk.
