Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Melanie,

We had a great long weekend up at your beautiful cabin! Thank you sooo much for having us, as the time was well enjoyed. Two of my party were fortunate enough to see a momma black bear with her cubs.

.......your cabin was more than we could have imagined and we all thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend!

Thank you,

We booked the house for a family reunion and were not disappointed! The house is easy to get to, within walking distance of the shops a hills at Kicking Horse and a short drive to Golden.

There was plenty of room for the entire family, an amazing dining area that worked for all 16 of us, a well stocked kitchen, BBQ and hot tub. The house was clean when we arrived, spacious, and comfortable. It was great to have the finished lower level for the kids to hang out. We had a fabulous time and will definitely be back.

Fantastic location for a mini-reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place that could accommodate a small reunion, and the layout of the house worked perfectly for our group of 6 adults and 4 toddlers. The common spaces were large and open, and the bedrooms were great - spacious, and with ample storage (even a pack n' play for the infant,) and there was even a gate to block the basement steps! The home was very clean upon our arrival, and the kitchen was well-stocked. The home owner was wonderful to work with - very quick to respond to all my questions, and they provided a lot of useful information on the area. Since we had never stayed in Golden before, it was nice to have some insider tips! We are looking forward to coming again in the near future, but this time, for a winter getaway!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this house do not do this house justice! It is absolutely gorgeous with the most beautiful! We came on a girls weekend celebrating the upcoming wedding of one. The house was perfect having the bedrooms upstairs/downstairs and the main hangout on the main floor. There were a lot of pots, pans, plates, cups. I think this would be an amazing rental for any summer/winter getaway. In comparison of the hotels in the area you cannot beat the price of this house! The owners made everything stress free and were super accommodating to us! I feel like I can't say enough good things....just book it!

Amazing Chalet - A space to remember

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of friends and right from the moment everyone walked in, we were all amazed with the space and layout of the building. It's a very unique space, can sleep a ton of people very comfortably, and the owners were the best I've ever dealt with.

Highly recommend this place!

Friends Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was totally amazing. It was clean when we arrived and had everything we needed for a wonderful ski weekend. Ski in and out right from the front door, who could ask for more! The snow was wonderful and not too busy this time of year. Would definitely recommend this rental to anyone who is looking to get away to the mountains. Whether you're skiing or just taking in the sights, this is a beautiful place to visit!
