Overview

Golden Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Situated in Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Columbia Mountain Lodge is a bright and stylish 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom mountain home neatly laid out over three floors that comfortably sleeps up to 10 guests. Columbia Mountain Lodge is particularly suited for families and groups. Half-house (up to 4 guests) rentals are available at Owner's discretion.

The lodge is complete with the features you would expect in a luxury chalet including open plan living, fully equipped kitchen, satellite TV, mp3/ipod station, high speed internet, internal and external wood burning fireplaces, BBQ, hot tub, ski room with boot warmers and heated double garage. Four out of the five bedrooms can be configured as kings or twin XL beds which makes this attractive home very flexible and suitable for families and groups.

The lodge is only a short walk to the slopes and main gondola with ski in to the lodge in good snow conditions.

Enter this charming chalet at the basement level where there is a large coat and shoe closet. You will also find the first of two luxury en-suite master bedrooms with king/twin XL beds and DVD player, as well as a further bedroom with twin XLbeds, separate shower room and laundry room.

A wide staircase runs up the centre of the property from the entrance hall and brings you to the open plan main floor level with wood flooring. From here the dining area is straight ahead, the kitchen is to your left and the sunken living room is to the right. The stairs to the upper level carry on with large picture windows providing plenty of natural light up the stairwell.

The spacious fully equipped kitchen, with custom cabinets and granite work surfaces has all the amenities you would expect in a luxury home including range, oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, ice-maker, coffee maker and generous cooking utensils and table ware. There is a large granite surfaced central island which doubles as a breakfast bar and a separate comfy reading chair. There are French doors from the kitchen accessing on to the rear patio where seating is provided in the summer season.

The dining space, with ample seating, connects the kitchen to the lounge area and offers stunning panoramic views over the Columbia Valley.

The luxurious sunken living room features a wood burning fireplace, a vast sectional sofa, flat screen TV with satellite and DVD and an Ipod/MP3 dock. Guests can access the outdoor hot tub and fireplace through a side door leading to the rear patio.

There are three luxury bedrooms on the upper level: the second en-suite master bedroom with king/XL twin beds and stunning panoramic views, satellite TV and DVD player plus two further king/twin XL bedrooms and the family bathroom.

Outside, guests can soak in the 8 person hot tub in front of a wood burning fire place which is accessed from the living room or kitchen. There is nothing quite like relaxing in the hot tub watching the stars above: even better if there is light snowfall. There is also a BBQ which guests can use throughout the year.

Inside the heated double garage there is a dedicated area for ski/board storage with ski rack, heated boot warmers, benches and rubber matting. Access to this area is from both inside and outside the lodge.

The heated garage provides parking for 2 cars and there is parking on the drive for at a further 4 cars.

Keywords: Columbia Mountain Lodge, bright and stylish home, ski chalet, sleeps up to 10 guests, half house (up to 4 guests) rentals available, luxury living, open plan living on the main floor, internal and external wood burning fireplaces, hot tub, ski/boot room, short walk/ski to the slopes and the main gondola at KHMR

About Helen Kenyon

My husband and I are British and live in England. I am a lawyer and my husband works in the automotive industry. We live in a small village in an area of outstanding natural beauty known as 'the Cotswolds'. We live an outdoor life and have three horses, a dog and two chickens.

Helen Kenyon purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Helen Kenyon chose Golden

I first came to KHMR in 2003 and it was love at first sight. That feeling led me to purchase a plot and build our dream home. We truly believe that KHMR is one of the best, if not the best, ski hills in the world and we are delighted to welcome you into our home and share it with you.

What makes this chalet unique

KHMR combines superb snow, world class skiing and stunning scenery. It is a heady cocktail that draws lovers of the mountains and the outdoors to it time and time again whatever the season.

Lovely Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We came for a family ski trip with ages ranging from 2 to 80, and the house was suitable for us all. It was great to have so many bathrooms, and it was nice that the beds in most rooms could be configured as either kings or 2 twins. We loved both the indoor and outdoor fireplaces. The hot tub was big, and the water stayed clear for our entire week. The kitchen has ample counter space and storage. We loved having the boot/mitten dryer and so much storage for our equipment in the heated garage. We were able to meet the owners who are extremely down to earth. They even bought extra kitchen equipment upon request before our arrival. We had a great trip and will certainly be back.

Beautiful Palace Set Up with Purpose in Mind

  • 5 of 5

This place is a beautiful large palace located right by the resort. My friends and I were delighted with how awesome this house is. We were also so pleased because the owners have clearly put thought into how to make it desirable and functional for skiers. It's the little things that I'm talking about like having towels laid out by the hot tub and wood by the fire, having a boot dryer in the garage and having the garage set up to hang all your wet ski stuff so you don't stink up the house. The kitchen is well prepared with spices and olive oil and BBQ sauce and parchment paper and tin foil and a full compliment of cooking equipment. It comes with all the little things so it's easy and practical to cook meals while you stay. I recommend this place strongly!

Thank you!

  • 5 of 5

Helen - Thank you for allowing us to rent your lovely home. The location was convenient and easy to find, and the proximity to the lifts at Kicking Horse was perfect. It was also easy to get to multiple other ski areas. Your home is beautiful and functional, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Great Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 had a fantastic time at Columbia Mountain Lodge. The house was just as advertised: in wonderful condition, great amenities and very spacious. Its location at Kicking Horse is very central, with very quick access (essentially ski-in/out) to the hill, a 10 minute walk to the main lodges and a 5 minute walk to Winstons'. Furthermore, Helen was very helpful and professional to deal with. Hope to stay again.

Awesome time at Columbia Mountain Lodge!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time at the Columbia Mountain Lodge! There was 9 of us including two babies! The house worked perfectly for us. I love to cook, and had lots of fun preparing Christmas holiday meals. We loved the open concept of the kitchen/family room, so we can all be together in a common area. It was wonderful skiing all day and coming back and enjoying the comforts of the lodge... hot tub, fine food, and family time.

Columbia Mountain Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 had a wonderful stay at this lodge! The view was incredible, the lifts were just a short walk away, and the property was even more impressive than it appears in the photos. The kitchen and bathroom were great, and the beds were unbelievably comfortable. I would highly recommend this place!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Columbia Mountain Lodge. We agree that the views are gorgeous - they are one of the main reasons we chose the plot - and that comfortable beds for all is a must for powder hounds!! We would be delighted to welcome you back in the future. Kind regards Helen Columbia Mountain Lodge
