Golden House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

Our house is situated in the sleepy town of Nicholson, only a 4 minute drive south of Golden, off highway 95. Our mountain getaway is a wonderful way to escape your busy city lifestyle. Enjoy a glass of wine on our new 600 square foot deck while taking in the beautiful view of the Purcell mountains and Columbia Valley. Or relax your tired muscles in our new 8 man hot tub, after a day of skiing or snowmobiling. This full acre property is excellent for vacations with family or friends. However, our newly renovated master bedroom is a cozy retreat for that romantic couple.

Golden B.C., is surrounded by 4 national parks in the heart of the Columbia Valley. Some of the best skiing, snowmobiling, golf and rafting in Canada is all within a short distance. Make Golden Manor you next holiday destination.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After traveling for 3 days to attend a family members wedding, this house was a site for sore eyes and sore bones! My aunt found this house online and thought it would be a perfect fit to book for some of our family to stay at while attending a family wedding. We arrived to a beautiful cozy and inviting home, with the hot tub ready to jump in and soak our well traveled bones! (thank god!) There was really nothing for us to do but unwind and get ready for the wedding! We really enjoyed the first night soaking our sore bones in the hot tub with a few drinks with some family we hadn't seen in a very long time. What a great evening! Over the next few days, we had family over for a bar-b-q on the nice large deck, played games in the large yard, and just really enjoyed the time we had together. I don't feel we would have had the opportunity to enjoy our surroundings and each other if we had of stayed in a typical hotel. I've already referred friends to stay at this beautiful vacation home! Everything was clean, cozy and well maintained. Exactly what the occasion called for! Thanks for helping us be able to really enjoy our trip and a very special occasion!

Nice place but needs some sprucing

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful location and size, right by a beautiful river and the mountains. Quiet area and has lots of stuff to do! The place was very clean, and even had those little extras like chocolate on the pillows and nice towel foldings. The beds were comfortable and clean, and the kitchen was fully stocked with condiments and those little things that you always forget to bring. Also fully stocked with clean towels, pillows, and blankets. Comfortable couch for lounging and tons of space. Couple of things to be aware of is that almost all the appliances did not work. The wifi was non-existent (literally no network to even try to get on), the oven was broken, toaster oven broken, dishwasher did very minimal washing and would only allow you to choose one setting, and only one side lamp in the master bedroom worked. The hottub had instructions for us to use it but all the buttons had their label torn off, and when we tried to press them only 2 worked - 1 for lights - 2 to turn up the temperature (no down). It was also filthy - murky green water, was obviously low, and made all our swimsuits reek. Past that booking was actually a bit of a pain, every conversation I had was a struggle and involved much more contact than I wanted (4 phone conversations + emails). As well much of the info I wanted was held back until a week before the booking so planning activities was challenging. But all in all it was a great trip, and the time spent with friends here definitely outweighed the negatives.

Great Value with Everything You Need

  • 4 of 5

A group of 5 friends arrived for 5 days over New Years to ski at Kicking Horse which was less than 30 minutes away. The house was simple but everything you needed from miscellaneous condiments, utensils, coffee, tea, board games, BBQ (and propane!), and linens. The hot tub was ready to go when we arrived and we made sure we put it to use. The master bedroom had a king bed with a futon in the room, another room next to the main bathroom had a queen bed, another room had a double and final room had a bunk bed which had a double on the bottom and a single on top. The living room was cozy with an 'L' shaped sectional and a chair but we spent more time at the large 6 person kitchen table or in the hot tub. The internet was not working while we were there but when we called the owner he answered his phone and informed us of that along with a few of the other questions we had. All-in-all this was perfect value for our money, no 5-star hotel but everything you need.

Wonderful Value

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this rental justice. It was very clean and orderly when we arrived. All the beds had soft fresh linens The furniture in the living room is all brand new with a leather sectional and recliner, great for a nap or lounging. The location was awesome with no neighbours and wonderful views. WE played football on the huge yard and suntanned on the big deck. The hottub was clean and hot when we arrived. It was trerrific value, we have paid more for poorer places in the past.

Peaceful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I got married in Golden and rented this beautiful home as our little getaway from the chaos of the rest of weekend. The experience was awesome! Our wedding party enjoyed a relaxing hot tub party under the stats the night before and my bridesmaids and I got ready at the house the following day. The accommodations were relaxing and cozy- just what a frantic bride needs! And of course the scenery surrounding the property was breathtaking!

Arrived at the property early evening to find it heated for us and extremely welcoming. The property was spotless and there was coffee just ready for us to press the "brew" button. The photos on the website do not do the views justice - they were breathtaking. We stayed there for 3 nights for our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet - we will definitely be recommending this property to our friends and family.

Arrived at the house and it had not been cleaned. There were ashtrays with cigarette butts and ashtrays everywhere. There was garbage and beer cans on the deck with wasps and maggot in them. Went inside and the countertops and floors where filthy. Beds had old linens on them and had obviously been slept in by the last renters. The fridge was so gross we had to clean it before we could put any of our own food in it.

I contacted the rental agency and they sent a cleaner who did a terrible job and in no way brought it up to satisfactory shape. The rental agency was very unapologetic as well. A terrible experience and I would warn any others far away from this place.

The beds were uncomfortable and old and the furniture was worn out stained as well. It is in a ugly part of town and there are far better deals and nicer places to be had. Again I would very much suggest you steer clear.
