Overview

Golden Cabin Rental Photos and Description

A Two Bedroom Cabin Nestled Between The Purcell Mountains And Blaeberry River

The River House is a secluded cabin nestled between the Purcell Mountains and the Blaeberry River.

The River House is a two bedroom cabin, which sleeps 4 adults and 2 children. It has a full kitchen, fireplace, hot tub, t.v., blue-ray, internet and laundry facilities.

The River House is located on 8 acres of wooded land and is the only rental cabin on the property. The other house on the property is ours. You can wake up every morning and while eating breakfast watch a pair of bald eagles fish from the Blaeberry River. In the evenings watch a herd of elk drink from the river all while never having to leave the comfort of the River House.

The River House boasts peace and quiet, but for those that are looking for adventure, the House also includes the use of the 'shed'. In the shed there is a place to store and clean your equipment, which includes skis, bikes, sleds, ATVs, and all other equipment you may bring with you.

Suitability:
  • Events Allowed
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

About Grant and Antoinette

We are a couple who work in Calgary but play in Golden. Golden is a short commute from Calgary and this property allows us to enjoy everything the mountains have to offer.

In the winter we can go skiing at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, or strap on our cross country skis and headed out for a day of touring from the deck. The road makes a good tobogganing hill which has seen family spend many hours.

In the summer we can drive up the road 7km for a beautiful day hike to a gorgeous waterfall. Or we can grab our fishing rods and step off the deck into the Blaeberry River.

Grant and Antoinette purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Grant and Antoinette chose Golden

This property was purchased because it is a location where we can play all year round. We love the fact that this cabin is the only rental cabin on the property and we are surrounded by 8 acres of wooded seclusion. This allows us to get away from the hustle and bustle of Calgary, AB and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

We love to sit on the deck in the evenings with friends/family and listen to the Blaeberry River or in the mornings drink a cup of coffee and watch the sun light up the beautiful Purcell mountains just outside the door step.

What makes this cabin unique

The best part of this property is that it allows us and everyone who stays with us to enjoy the complete seclusion of the Mountains, and yet is so close to all the mountain adventures that Golden has to offer. It truly is a place to get away from it all!

Pictures don't do this place justice!

  • 5 of 5

First of all the owners are lovely and kept in touch up to and during our stay to ensure that we had everything we needed. They responded to emails very quickly and were very friendly.

The riverhouse is a quiet oasis. I spent the weekend there with my mother and two small nieces. We brought groceries and didn't leave the property/river all weekend because we had everything we could need there. The pictures don't quite do the riverhouse justice either. It is gorgeous. It had all the extra's of a hotel (mini shampoo/conditioner, brochures, information binders, etc), with all the comforts of a home. You can tell that the owners take pride in this place and it is fully loaded with quality items - they did not cheap out. They have thought of everything as well - board games, a few DVD's, Xbox, etc). The hot tub was very relaxing with a great view of the river. On top of it all our two dogs were welcome to join us which was fantastic.

I would definitely recommend this property.

One small note: there is another house on the property (with trees in between for privacy) but if you are looking for complete isolation keep this in mind.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for being wonderful guests, and we are so happy to hear that you, your nieces and the puppies all enjoyed the freedom of the property. We did not get a chance to meet you while you stayed with us, and I forgot to mention that the other house on the property is our house. We do not rent the house to others it is simply there for us to use while we are in Golden, and one of the main reasons we work in Calgary and play Golden!! Again thank you for the fabulous review and for being such great guests, we hope you come and stay with us in the future.

Excellent week!!

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay at The River House. While here we skied at Kicking Horse, Lake Louise, and Revelstoke, easy drives to all resorts, home in time for a soak in the hot tub, dinner and a movie. The views are incredible. We had snow shoes so did a few tours of the area as well. Can't wait to come back!! A huge thank you to the owners!!

Winter Oasis

  • 5 of 5

It was a real treat to be able to stay at the Riverhouse.My husband, sister, brother in law, myself and our for month old infant stayed comfortably here. You step out the door and it is amazing how quiet it is. If you are looking for a "get out of the city and away from civilization" this is the place to go. Grant and Antoinette were very helpful and accommodating. We can't wait to go back. Beautiful winter oasis!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights and the river house met all of our expectations. My first impression was how clean and tidy the place was. We enjoyed skiing in champagne powder and then soothing our muscles in the hot tub with a beautiful view!

Peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

4 adults and an infant had a relaxing and peaceful stay here over a chilly New Year holiday. The cabin is warm, very well equipped and cozy. There is easy access to Kicking Horse ski hill and we had a lovely day cross country skiing and snow shoeing up the river. Watching the sun set behind the mountains while enjoying a beverage in the hot tub was so lovely that we had to do it every day! We will be returning in the summer.

Stunning location!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay at the River house. Accommodating hosts, clean house and a spectacular view. Really enjoyed the hot tub after a day of skiing. Will look to return for a longer stay in summer.

Although it is 15 minutes to Golden, the River House is steps away from the beautiful Purcell Mountains and the Blaeberry River. As well the Thompson Falls area is a 2 minute drive away from the River House which boasts beautiful water falls and sledding areas. The possibilities of activities is endless for this area, all you need is a little imagination and adventure.

If you are looking for peace and quite, the River House is a secluded location, perfect for artists, wildlife watchers, or someone who just wants to get away from it all.
