Golden Cabin Rental Photos and Description

This beautiful timber frame cabin is the ultimate mountain getaway offering incredible tranquility and the unique feeling of being immersed in nature. The cabin (1800 ft2) is modernly appointed with 3 bedrooms, a master loft and 2 full bathrooms including a large soaker tub. Enjoy cooking and dining in a fully equipped kitchen with a gas range and dining that seats 6-8 comfortably.

Vaulted ceilings and a wood fireplace make for cozy comfort in the living room. Or, enjoy a movie and entertainment in the media room located in the fully developed basement. Just outside the door is a large covered vaulted deck with a gas BBQ and outdoor dining area that open up to a year round outdoor fire pit. Wireless internet, satellite TV and a dishwasher are also included.

Surrounded by wilderness on all sides and walking distance to the Blaeberry River, nature is just outside the door. Hiking trails abound including easy riverside walks to full mountain scrambles. During the summer months, the river offers opportunity for canoeing and river rafting. In the winter, enjoy the boundless snowshoe terrain, skier track-set cross-country ski trails or snowmobiling on nearby crown land.

The town of Golden is a 20 minute drive away offering additional recreation including skiing, whitewater rafting, and paragliding. Looking for epic skiing and riding? Kicking Horse Resort and its legendary powder are just 25 minutes away. For cross-country ski lovers, Dawn Mountain has over 30 kilometres of groomed trails ranging from beginner to advanced. Golden and area boast 5 National Parks nearby for ample adventure. This is a true Canadian Rockies experience.

About Barb Davies

I love the beauty and natural landscape Golden has to offer. I am an avid outdoor enthusiast that can't seem to get enough of the great outdoors! I can often be found out on my cross country skis. Or in the summer months I'll be out for a run, enjoying a hike or soaking in beauty of the Blaeberry River. In my work life I share my passion for health and wellness with others. I can often be found perusing the shelves of a local health store, sourcing local food, or puttering in my kitchen making delicious food with a glass of wine in hand! I hope you enjoy this mountain retreat as much as we do.

It was a wonderful experience. Golden(Blaeberry)

  • 5 of 5

The visit to this cabin and its surroundings has stolen my heart.

Located deep in the woods it makes the absolute perfect spot for people that love nature and want to get away from all the hussle and bussle of life.

This is the ideal place to stay if you have kids.

The combination of nature and being comfortable makes a stay in the cabin an unforgettable experience!

I would highly recommend anyone looking to escape the big city and get back to the simple joys in life to visit and stay in this beautiful cabin!

Great cabin, peaceful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time at the cabin. It is well built and well stocked with everything we needed. It was comfortable, warm and clean!

The area is perfect for the kids to run and play with still being close enough to Golden if need be.

We would go back in a heartbeat!

Lovely house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this house, well equipped and comfortable. Beautiful area and an easy short walk to the river, easy to get to the National parks and Golden. We felt like we were Canadians at home in this house rather than tourists! Excellent advice from the owner about local things to do, very helpful. Deposit returned very promptly after our stay too.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful house, fully equipped, very confortable and spacious, with a very tasteful decoration, surrounded by the forest (we saw deers in the garden).

The surroundings are so beautiful, there

are lots of activities to do in Golden (we enjoyed rafting) and wonderful parks (yoho, lake louise) at a short distance (1hour).

We definitely recommend this property, our stay was awesome!

Great Views, Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cabin had everything you could possibly need for any sort of weather. Close to Golden, it was a quick 20 minutes drive to get anything if need be. Best part was being provided tourist destinations and directions from the front door. Lots of hiking available, the river is close by and a great horse riding ranch down 5 minutes down the road. I would strongly suggest this rental to a family looking for a city escape.

Great little hideaway in the mountains

  • 4 of 5

I'd recommend this property for anyone looking to escape the hustle of city life. It's a beautiful space with everything you need to relax and enjoy, as well as a great spot to come back to after an adventure in the mountains. We were really looking forward to the firepit but had a bit of a rainy night and missed out! We spent a weekend there with a group of girls and we all left relaxed with big smiles! Barb was great and attentive and we're so grateful for our stay!
