My wife and I have lived in Alberta our entire lives and have always enjoyed vacationing in Radium Hot Springs. We love to golf and ski, as do our children, so choosing a property in Radium was an easy decision!

We fell in love with the views of Borrego Ridge and once we saw the plans for the property we knew it was the place for us, our children and grandchildren!
The location of Borrego Ridge is ideal for my family to enjoy the beauty of British Columbia - the area has outstanding recreational opportunities like golf, skiing, hiking and rafting. Plus, there is a fantastic restaurant down the road that we love!! We have spent many evenings at Helna Stube's!
We so enjoyed our stay... the house was perfect for us and the location was excellent! We are looking forward to coming back again!! Thank you so much!!
great location! the house is beautiful and had all the amenities. we stayed 3 nights and we were able to go to quite a few sites, including white water rafting and drove to lake morraine! Nice place!
We stayed here for 2 weeks on our first trip to Canada from Scotland. We wanted a good base for exploring the Rockies, but with space to chill out and have some family time. I'd considered Banff and Canmore, but for our budget the accommodation there was much more cramped and basic, so we opted for a little more driving but relaxing space to unwind - and so glad we did!
The house is on 2 levels, with the well appointed kitchen just inside the front entrance, opening on to a lounge with gas fire and stunning views to the Purcells beyond. The lounge has a deck, which is raised above the rear garden, as the ground falls away to the rear. Also on the entrance floor is the master bedroom and a study, which one of my sons used as quite comfortably as a bedroom with the airbed supplied.
Downstairs are 2 more lovely bedrooms and a laundry room, off of the tv room, which has 3 really comfy recliner cinema chairs - which my teenagers loved! This room also has a patio door opening out to the communal grassed yard beyond. We had deer passing the rear window one night, and heading into the canyon behind the property, and the local bighorn sheep were regular visitors outside the house.
All the fixtures are very high quality - a lovely steam shower in the master en suite, nice bed linens and towels, all the kitchen utensils you could need. Everything was very clean and well maintained, and we wanted for nothing. The property is on a quiet residential cul de sac - a 15 min walk into Radium where there are a handful of restaurants, a couple of basic supermarkets and petrol stations. Koonenay National Park is just a couple of miles away and you're straight into the stunning scenery that that offers. Windermere is about 10 miles away, with a wider range of shopping and eateries, a lakeside beach.
My only slight disappointment was the timber mill a mile or so away in the canyon behind the property. It was actually interesting to watch the activity there - so many trees! - but it was brightly lit at night drowning out the amazing starry skies i'd been hoping for.
But the views of the Bugaboos from the bedroom and deck were just amazing, and we'd not hesitate to stay here again when we go back to the Rockies. A real home from home!
Highly recommend this spot if you're looking for a weekend, or weeklong, or extended getaway! The house was sufficiently stocked with all of the necessities needed (wonderfully surprised how great the kitchen was stocked specifically).
The views were great and my family specially loved watching the mountain goats roam about.
We only stayed at the house for a weekend… But will definitely go back! The owners were wonderful to deal with, kept in touch via email, and had our deposit returned within days. Thank you
This was an ideal house to rent for three golfers. Each person had their own bedroom and there was tons of space with two floors. Cooking your own food on the bbq is another bonus.
I would certainly recommend this house to people travelling in this area.
