The Brown house was designed by architect Lisa Webb and built by my husband Richard. I was the hammer hand but pretty hopeless as I was pregnant throughout the three year build. We chose to build the house from untreated Douglas Fur and Pine and used natural waxes to seal the timber where necessary.
We love our home we built and enjoy going there with our boys to go skiing,fishing hiking and cycling. We hope you will enjoy it too. there is so much beauty in this pristine environment

The Brown House is in a wonderful location with beautiful scenery. There are not many stores or restaurants near by, so make sure to stock up before you arrive!

We loved the Brown house! Such a awesome space to sit back and relax. Watching the stars from the deck was extra special!

Really enjoyed our time at the Brown House! The place feels like a stylish ski lodge with a great living room/kitchen area and outdoor deck. The bedrooms were not terribly luxurious but still well appointed and comfortable. We especially enjoyed how well stocked the place was wit…

We had an absolutely peaceful and rejuvenating stay at the Brown House. we saw both fair and stormy weather and enjoyed both. the area is tranquil and gorgeous and the isolation made for a really cozy experience. Janet herself was prompt considerate and accommodating.

The Brown House is a great vacation destination. Beautiful view, very quiet. Janet had done a great job at preparing the house for guests. Plenty of rooms with bunk beds for kids, wood stove, large DVD collection for relaxing. Great stay.
