About Gabriel Higham

We are two avid skiers who bought our house for ski trips with family and friends and eventual retirement. To help pay the bills we rent it out when we aren't using it. We first skied at Kicking Horse in 2004 as part of our yearly ski trip with friends - that year trying out the eastern side of the Canadian Rockies. We had skied Whistler a couple of times and knew we loved Canadians. They are so nice, cheerful and friendly people. Our day at Kicking Horse was the favorite of everyone on the trip. We couldn't believe how great the snow was, how big the mountain was and how few people there were. My wife and I actually got engaged at the top of Lake Louise. She asked me to marry her and I said yes and she presented me with candy lollipop rings (we later upgraded them). Anyway, we looked at buying at the time but weren't in a financial position to do so. But in 2009 we were in a much better position and so we decided to come back to double check if everything we remembered about it was true. It was and we happened to stumble upon a great deal on this home and jumped at the opportunity. With any life changing event there is always a little voice that wonders if you are doing the right thing. That voice went away and never came back after we had to stop for a black wolf in the middle of the road between Banff and Golden. We knew this was the place for us. We decided to name the house after that black wolf we saw. We hope that you will consider experiencing our wonderful home and get as much enjoyment out of it as we do.

Gabriel Higham purchased this house in 2010

Why Gabriel Higham chose Golden

We love to ski and Kicking Horse has some of the best skiing in North America. We absolutely love the snow and varied terrain of Kicking Horse. And the views are to die for.

A perfect family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful house in a perfect place of Kicking Horse in Golden. We had plenty of room for our 6 kids (all teens and young adults) and they had lots to do close by. Gabe was a great host and answered all of our questions with long, complete answers about things to do in the area. And as the mom, I was thrilled that there was so little expected of us to leave the property on our last day. I didn't have to start cleaning on my last day of vacation. And I was thrilled to get my deposit returned SO quickly! Thanks again. We hope to see you again soon.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan, It was wonderful to have your family at our home. And so glad you got to experience all that Golden has to offer. That is an awesome point about your vacation not being spent cleaning up on your last day. We will clean up after you. You can just relax and enjoy yourselves. Gabriel Higham

Fantastic house in a beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

Had some of our family stay here for my daughter's wedding It is a very beautiful house and we managed very well There are lots of stairs so not good for anyone with disabilities.if you have small children they do provide child gates. The host was very helpful and prompt to respond to any questions. The kitchen is very well equipped and the dining table is impressive. All the furniture is very comfortable.The hottub is great!

One of our best vacation homes anywhere!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented vacation homes all over the world, and this home was by far the best equipped yet. The home was meticulous when we arrived. It was very spacious and every room was well layed out and very comfortable, as were the beds in every bedroom. The bathrooms were very unique.

Gabriel was very attentive to any request or questions that we had and usually responded almost immediately. He was awesome.

Our entire family of 9 had lots of room and never felt crowded. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone and will certainly entertain staying here again if we ever pass thru Golden again.
