Overview

About the property

A Two Bedroom Cabin Nestled Between The Purcell Mountains And Blaeberry River

The River House is a secluded cabin nestled between the Purcell Mountains and the Blaeberry River.

The River House is a two bedroom cabin, which sleeps 4 adults and 2 children. It has a full kitchen, fireplace, hot tub, t.v., blue-ray, internet and laundry facilities.

The River House is located on 8 acres of wooded land and is the only rental cabin on the property. The other house on the property is ours. You can wake up every morning and while eating breakfast watch a pair of bald eagles fish from the Blaeberry River. In the evenings watch a herd of elk drink from the river all while never having to leave the comfort of the River House.

The River House boasts peace and quiet, but for those that are looking for adventure, the House also includes the use of the 'shed'. In the shed there is a place to store and clean your equipment, which includes skis, bikes, sleds, ATVs, and all other equipment you may bring with you.

About Grant and Antoinette

We are a couple who work in Calgary but play in Golden. Golden is a short commute from Calgary and this property allows us to enjoy everything the mountains have to offer.

In the winter we can go skiing at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, or strap on our cross country skis and headed out for a day of touring from the deck.

In the summer we can drive up the road 7km for a beautiful day hike to a gorgeous waterfall. Or we can grab our fishing rods and step off the deck into the Blaeberry River.

Grant and Antoinette purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Grant and Antoinette chose British Columbia Mountains

This property was purchased because it is a location where we can play all year round. We love the fact that this cabin is the only rental cabin on the property and we are surrounded by 8 acres of wooded seclusion. This allows us to get away from the hustle and bustle of Calgary, AB and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

We love to sit on the deck in the evenings with friends/family and listen to the Blaeberry River or in the mornings drink a cup of coffee and watch the sun light up the beautiful Purcell mountains just outside the door step.

What makes this cabin unique

The best part of this property is that it allows us and everyone who stays with us to enjoy the complete seclusion of the Mountains, and yet is so close to all the mountain adventures that Golden has to offer. It truly is a place to get away from it all!

Absolutely Lovely

  • 5 of 5

The river house is in a stunning location. The view on two sides are gorgeous mountains. One that is so close it feels like you can touch them. The River House is very clean and when you snuggle under the down comforters it's a little bit of heaven. Morning coffee in the hot tub overlooking the river and the mountains while listening to the squirrels and birds can't get better than this. River House is clean and tidy with all the needed amenities to make your stay welcoming. There are so many adventures in the area my favourite was a walk with the wolves at Northern Light Wolf Santuary. Experience wolves up close as you go on a walk with them. Bring your camera and book ahead.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very well set up with everything you need, hot tub was a hit with our family and the views were amazing from the back yard and hot tub as well as the fire pit.Great place to visit if your looking to get away from everyday hustle and bustle of city life, the river is just a few steps away if your into fishing with bull trout due to come up around September, the house itself has everything you need, 2 decent size bedrooms with closets, washer and dryer, well equipped kitchen, good size bathroom , sleeps 6 easy.

The owners Grant and Antoinette are amazing, attentative to your needs and come up with anything you need and great ideas to make your stay even more enjoyable.

Would recommend you book very early as it's starting to become a very popular retreat with continual repeat business.

My family and I had a great time, will be coming back.

Our experience at the River House was more of than we expected. It was a wonderful peaceful place. The views were outstanding and the house was comfortable and clean. The beds were super comfy but supportive.

The hosts/owner were kind and accommodating.

Overall we highly recommend staying at the River House!

Although it is 15 minutes to Golden, the River House is steps away from the beautiful Purcell Mountains and the Blaeberry River. As well the Thompson Falls area is a 2 minute drive away from the River House which boasts beautiful water falls and sledding areas. The possibilities of activities is endless for this area, all you need is a little imagination and adventure.

If you are looking for peace and quite, the River House is a secluded location, perfect for artists, wildlife watchers, or someone who just wants to get away from it all.
