Park Place Lodge

Your first challenge will definitely be to find a place for you and your stuff for the next few months. There is a lot more choice and prices are cheaper. Once October hits, winter pricing goes into effect and there is not as much available. Remember that the longer time frame you commit to renting, the better the monthly rate will usually be.

Short Term: Hostels

A hostel offers a great place to stay when you are looking for something more long term.

The Fernie RV Resort offers year around RVing and has become a great option for seasonal workers.

Long term: Rooms, Apartments & Houses

There is no employee housing in Fernie, so when it comes to finding accommodation for the long haul, you’re on your own. One of the best ways to source your place is online. The Community Forum on fernie.com lists houses, apartments and rooms for rent; it’s a great way to find a place before you even get here.

If you’re moving to Fernie with more than one other person, chances are you will be able to rent a house if you arrive early enough or find something in advance. Otherwise, you’re limited to apartments (few) or rooms in a house (many).
