Golden House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath + Top Floor Loft

Stunning Kicking Horse home just steps away from the gondola. The house comfortably sleeps couples, families or 8 singles with rooms on all three levels. There are three full bathrooms and three bedrooms with split king beds & twin niches to accommodate families or single travelers. In addition, the top floor of the home is a private loft area with a skylight, birds eye view window & 3 twin beds. The open living area and kitchen is great for groups and boasts a gorgeous wood burning fire place, natural stone floors and amazing mountain views. The private hot tub is perfect for relaxing after a day of skiing or mountain biking.

The lower level has a movie room and large mudroom with floor & hanging space for all the gear and a convenient door straight outside.

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort features over 2,800 acres of ski-able terrain, 120+ runs, and is only 14 km outside of the town of Golden. The Resort is easily accessible from Highway 1. The mountain features a high speed gondola with three chairlifts. Other winter activities include cross counter skiing, heli-skiing, snowmobiling, ice climbing, dog sledding and snowshoeing. Amenities include numerous great restaurants, pubs and coffee shops at the base of the amount, a restaurant at the top of the mountain with a view that will leave you speechless, and a pro shop for your equipment and rental needs. With a general store at the base of the mountain, everything you need is steps away.

About Leanne Ritter

We built the Rundle House over 10 years ago and it continues to be the place where we build memories with our loved ones while enjoying everything the Canadian Rockies has to offer. Before returning to Canada, we lived in Amsterdam where Peter is from and i had a chance to work as an interior architect. Today we live in Calgary full time and feel blessed to have access to this winter wonderland. In addition to skiing while in Kicking Horse , we enjoy the snowshoeing, sledding & cross country trails right off our doorstep.

Leanne Ritter purchased this house in 2003

Why Leanne Ritter chose British Columbia Mountains

Peter and I were both involved in the original development of Kicking Horse, he with the Dutch development team and i as the interior design consultant for the Eagles Eye Restaurant and various other buildings and residences. We have literally been there since the beginning when there was only a stake where the gondola was going to be built! Living in Amsterdam while we planned the house provided inspiration for multiple use spaces and the blend of Rocky Mountain & modern Scandinavian design details. The lot was chosen for its incredible ski access and the great views off the front deck. The children will tell you that the LOFT is definitely their favourite part of the house!

What makes this house unique

As a hospitality interior designer and avid traveller, we strive to provide the same luxury experience we would expect from a hotel or owner direct rental. Staying in the house ourselves with various friends, family and business associates we have planned the house to have an intimate feel and be a fun gathering space, whilst still providing spaces for everyone to have access to privacy and quiet time. Attention to detail like high quality cooking supplies, reading lights throughout and 5* star mattresses is what i do in my work and provide guests of the Rundle House!

Great Winter Getaway House

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at the Rundle House. We've come two years in a row because we enjoy this house so much. The layout is very well designed so it accommodates 8 adults easily. The hot tub is private and it has great amenities. We will be coming back next year for sure!

what an extraordinary stay we had for our month at the rundle house.....our love nest in the sky. the home is beautiful and was well stocked with all the lovely things that made our stay there so special. leanne was wonderful to work with...if we needed anything it was taken care of immediately. we hiked the parks every other day and the proximity to the entrance of five parks was so great....plus the town of golden is like living back in the 50's. we loved the skylight over our bed....the roominess throughout the house and ate most of our meals on the deck. the radiant heat when it got in the forties at night was great...we've been renting all over the west with vrbo for years and this was one of our fav places....all the appliances were wonderful....it was a major winner.....

Wonderful time with friends in this great KHMR house!

  • 4 of 5

We have been to Golden several times, and this is such an ideal place to stay. Walking distance (or skiing when we have a good snow season!) to the Gondola and restaurants/bars. Lovely neighborhood, gorgeous home, and decks with hot tub and BBQ. The owners are great to work with, flexible, professional and have set the house up well for rental use. The only suggestion I might have is that the grill does not cook evenly so we had a bit of a challenge getting everything ready for the group at the right time. But if that's the only complaint on such a large house with lots to do, then they're doing something right!

Owner's Response: Thank you Amy. We are so glad you had a great holiday and enjoyed the house. A new BBQ is on this list to replace this spring so next time you'll have a new grill to cook on!

Will definitely go back!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable house for our group of 8. Great view from the deck and a nice variety of comfortable beds, we especially enjoyed the sleeping nooks. The house has been very well planned out and we all felt at home right away. I would definitely recommend staying here and am looking forward to our next visit.

Excellent choice!

Very nice and spacious house. Good amenities, ski-in ski-out, amazing views, comfortable beds, relaxing spa, convenient mud room for ski gears: in short we had an excellent stay at Rundle House. We found the owner very helpful and we appreciated her tips about the area. We would definitely go back.
