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.

"Thanks so much! What a perfect place to spend vacation away from crowds we loved sitting on the deck watching the eagles and seeing deer in the backyard. The cabin is fabulous and was everything we needed. Thanks so much for making this a perfect vacation" Florida, USA

"River house cottage was everything we hoped for and more. A beautiful location and wonderful cottage. You were great hosts as were Lola & Sally. We have all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back one day. Thank you for making it so relaxed and easy." England

"Thanks so much River House! We had an excellent stay here. The house and location is beautiful! We enjoyed eating dinner at the picnic table and using the fire pit to toast marshmallows. We also really enjoyed watching the humming birds fly in and out to the feeder. We were able to get a couple of pictures. We appreciated the list of hikes and activities you gave to us, and thanks for being such welcoming hosts." Philadelphia USA

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 Golden

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!

                                                          The River House was everything we hoped for and more!

                                                          June D.

                                                          Perfect spot for a weekend away. Secluded property with breathtaking mountain views. The house was well equipped and immaculately kept. Comfy beds and the hot tub was set at the perfect temperature. We would highly recommend this stay!!

                                                          Better than I was expecting. The photos really don't do the property justice.

                                                          Marlana V.

                                                          Antoinette and Grant are lovely people, and hosts. They were excellent in responding to our inquiries, and were more than accommodating to us and our 2 pups.

                                                          I looked for months for a place like this, and am so happy we had a chance to vacation here. It was our perfect getaway. Quiet, simple, secluded, stunning, and space to spend all day playing outside, whether we wanted to just leave from the front step, or travel a short distance to access a multitude of activities.

                                                          Best winter vacation!

                                                          Terrific getaway


                                                          We keep coming to the River House year over year as it's one of our favorite vacation destinations. Antoinette and Grant are perfect hosts and we always feel welcomed and at home.

                                                          Perfect little cabin

                                                          Dale C.

                                                          Would definitely stay there again

                                                          Beautiful scenic cabin in the mountains!

                                                          Nadine G.

                                                          We had come to the river house from Dec 30 to Jan 8th and had a wonderful time. Myself , husband and 2 boys aged 6 and 8 take 1 week each winter to enjoy a snow fun trip. This year we chose golden and stayed in the river house. It had everything we needed to enjoy the time we were there. We stay in many vrbo homes when we travel and this one was one of the best, certainly had the most comfortable beds ever. The beautiful surrounding of mountains, creek, and snow couldn't be any better. Antoinette was most helpful with many questions for us, she even gave us great recommendation for our new years eve night out and we loved the place. (Wolf's den) great atmosphere and great food.

                                                          Antoinette was studying to do massage so she gave me a great professional massage which was an extra added benefit to a winter wonderland vacation. We typically like to travel to different places every year but we enjoyed the cabin , ski resort and town of Golden so much (real adorable mountain town ) we may just come back for our next year winter vacation too. Highly recommend the River House !!!

                                                          Great Stay

                                                          Darryl A.

                                                          We had a wonderful stay, very quiet and great views. We were there for a ski holiday and it was close enough to the resort and the heli pad for the heli skiing. Personally we prefer the quiet of being away from the resort itself to be able to walk the dogs and enjoy the outdoors. Property is exactly as advertised.


                                                          Golden, BC, Canada

                                                          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.
