About the property

Hawkes Hill is a peaceful country getaway 15 minutes south of Golden with spectacular views overlooking the Columbia River valley. Be wowed by our fully furnished, two bedroom self contained apartment with a million dollar view!

The suite is full of sunlight and looks out over the Columbia River valley and the Purcell Mountains to the west and the Rockies to the east. Views to the north overlook a wooded meadow perfect for cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter and easy walks or hiking during the rest of the year.

Hawkes Hill has two bedrooms and sleeps four comfortably. The master bedroom features a queen size bed. The second bedroom has two twins. (Please see fee note below.)

A large spacious living area off the bedrooms and bathroom makes up the rest of the suite and combines a kitchen and sitting area with a wood stove. The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, fridge, microwave, dishes and utensils. The hot tub with a view is available for guest use. And we have Wi-Fi internet and satellite TV in the suite too.

Maggie & Bill live in the main house adjacent to the suite and are accessible if the need arises. We love meeting guests and hearing about their lives and travels, but we also respect a mutual need for privacy. For your arrival we provide a loaf of Bill's home made bread and stock the kitchen with tea, coffee fixings to make you welcome.

We strive to provide a comfortable place for our guests to relax and enjoy their holiday, and we ask that guests are considerate and respectful of our home and beautiful environment. No smoking on the property, please. No pets. No parties.

Our guests tell us that we have the million dollar view. It certainly is a joy to have this panoramic view of the valley and mountains. Birds flock to our feeders and it is always a cool moment to look down into the valley and see the local herd of elk foraging for slough grass beneath the snow or watch the eagles and red tail hawks soaring on the summer thermals just above our heads.

Surrounded by five national parks and close to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, we are situated in a breathtaking mountain wilderness only 3 hours from the Calgary International Airport.

As well as the adventure playground outside our door, Golden is well known for an active arts scene featuring two dozen concerts of music, theatre and dance annually. On the Valentine's Day weekend, the Snow King & Lady Spring come into town for our annual MasqueParade outdoor pageant in Spirit Square. Throughout the summer, there are free mid-week concerts featuring touring festivals artists in Golden's Spirit Square. Check out Kicking Horse Culture online for more info.

Price listed is for two people. For each additional person, add $20/night. Minimum two night stay.

PLEASE NOTE: our basic fee is calculated for two people sharing the same room. If two people wish to use two rooms for sleeping, please confirm with us before booking. Using both rooms increases our cleaning load and cost so we need to add a $25 cleaning fee to the basic fee when two people use both bedrooms. Thanks.

Secluded! Fantastic Views! Clean! Friendly Owners! Easy Drive to Town!

  • 5 of 5

Hawkes Hill had everything we needed for our family vacation. A very quiet and peaceful place. My eleven year old daughter enjoyed the hot tub, the balcony for reading and the outdoor cats Bella and Fella. And the t.v.! There was plenty of space for all of us. The vacation house was an easy drive to Golden and the National Parks. We enjoyed a canoe ride on the Columbia River and Horseback riding north of Golden. If you pick this vacation spot, you won't be disappointed! We hope to be able to return sometime! Thank you for letting us enjoy your suite, your gardens and your view of the river! -Kansas Flatlanders-

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay at this property here. Maggie and Bill were such wonderful hosts that we felt so at home the moment that we arrived. And the views!! What a wonderful view right outside of the home, it was incredible to wake up to see everyday. The pictures and the description don't do it justice, you have to see how beautiful it is for yourselves. I can easily say that we will be coming back again, and I highly recommend it to any travellers that will be staying in the Golden area.

Great unit with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in March 2016 with our two young kids.Very comfortable unit with all the amenities of home - lots of big bright windows and comfortably furnished. Fantastic views of the mountains and nearby river. Very quiet unit both inside and out. We saw that the unit was close to the highway on a map, but the noise from the road was non-existent. Owners were courteous and quiet. Roughly 10 minutes from Golden city limits and a very easy drive. Would stay here again.
