Beautiful Mountain Retreat
My family of 4 stayed here for a week and had a great time. I was geared up to give this place a 4 star review on account of the description not being completely transparent about the house/grounds keeper living in a basement suite attached to the house. Upon finding that out (it is in the description but it's not 100% clear you're sharing a house) I was fairly disappointed, however the people in the basement suite keep out of the way so it wasn't an issue at all. However, if you're looking for a 'whole home to yourself' type rental this isn't technically it. Now, why I upped my review back to a 5 is because this house is beautiful. The grounds are massive, the house is fully stocked for everything you could want to do (games, sports equipment, bikes, everything!) and the surrounding area is awesome. Tons of hikes (all VERY well documented in a binder at the house) nearby. Nature is at your door step, literally. There was a family of deer living in the yard that we watched every morning. Overall this place is awesome, the ONLY thing that was an issue was the WiFi router. The internet connection is fine but they need to replace their router, I let the owner know and he's going to get it replaced. We stayed in summer but this place would be great to hole up in during the winter and its only about 30mins from Kicking Horse! Stay here, it's great.

5/5 Excellent

Great base for exploring Rockies.
Spent a week exploring the Rockies with no some friends. The house was a great spot to come back to after a full day of hiking. We cooked on the open fire, soothed our muscles in the hot tub and sat around the kitchen table sharing meals and playing cards into the night. Remote location made it easy to get off the grid but still close enough to groceries and other amenities. The house had tons of games and toys to keep kids entertained.

5/5 Excellent

Time flies when you are having fun!
Excellent property for the perfect family vacation! Location was great! We got simple and easy directions to find the lodge. Our stay was private, quiet and relaxing. Renting was a breeze. Owners provided great suggestions for things to see and do. Check in and check out were effortless.

5/5 Excellent

Ski Trip
There are 8 of us who get together each March for a skiing holiday. This was the perfect place and ideal location for accessing the many ski resorts in the area. Would definitely stay here again.

5/5 Excellent

We very well enjoyed our week at the cabin. Had everything we needed and more. Cozy, comfortable, and well distributed. My 5 brothers and I had a wonderful time in the Golden area.
