Our family loved this cabin for our recent stay in Canada. We used it as a home base to travel all around Banff, Yoho, Glacier and Jasper National Parks. The town of Golden had some amazing restaurants and the grocery stores had everything we needed for the week. The large kitchen was perfect for our entire family to gather every day and each night always ended in the hot tub!
Awesome place. Hope to be back.
Spent time on Kicking Horse and traveled to Banff. Perfect location!
Beautiful mountain log chalet home
We were a group of 8 adults and a toddler and there was a lot of room for visiting and for privacy.
The chalet is a real log home, gorgeous, located on a quiet street just a short walk downhill to Kicking Horse Plaza and the lifts.
Easy check in and check out.
Plenty of comfy seating and many very large windows on the main floor plus a large dining table with lots of chairs we were very comfortable. 2 of the bedrooms are perfect for couples with big beds and TV's the other 2 bedrooms and the loft have single beds and a pullout couch better for families or kids. The loft has a big TV, movies and games and a large floor area for lounging. Steep stairs to second level.
Kitchen was well stocked with all the dishes, glasses, pots etc but there was no Nespresso machine which we had packed pod for but the coffee machine worked fine.
NIce BBQ on the deck out the kitchen door.
Lots of sheets, blankets, towels in addition to the fully made up beds and bathrooms. The hot tub was warm and clean, the chemicals were checked by a service while we were there, that was great. Parking in garage and room for 2 more cars on the driveway plus street parking; very convenient.
The owners were friendly, helpful and quick to respond; we would happily stay here again and hope to do so!
A nice ambience, great location but needs some upkeep.
We were a group of 9 adults and the log cabin had ample room for us all. The beds were very comfortable with good comforters. Plenty of plates and cutlery but the glassware was limited (only 6 stemmed wine glasses, the rest small juice glasses and not many). The pots and pans and cooking utensils were an ‘eclectic’ set but we managed to prepare our meals easily enough. Everyone enjoyed the ambiance of the log cabin, the fireplace (with lots of firewood) made a nice cosy atmosphere. The hot tub was also nice. However, the place needs some maintenance. We replaced 4 burnt out lights in the kitchen when we arrived. The front door handle broke (some screws had stripped, not due to our misuse) so we couldn’t use it. When I called the local contact, she took a day to reply and then the repair was an interim fix and so we still didn’t use it. The door to the garage also had a broken lock as did the side door. Only the back door worked properly. The master shower head needs fixed as it is sitting on a shelf above the toilet, so the water poured down in a single stream, not a shower. The supplies were also limited. No paper towels or tissues, no hand soap in the bathrooms, no spare garbage bags, the salt shaker was next to empty, the spices in the cupboard were all down to the last dregs and looked very old. We had to go back into town to buy all of these after we arrived. The bath towels are also getting old. If the owners put some attention into maintenance, a little updating and providing some basic supplies, this home has great character and we would be back. But for the price, I expect better. Our group was very happy with the location for getting to and from the ski hill.
Frankly, all fair comments. It is a beautiful well located chalet, but the comments about maintenance and supplies were all true. I had not been to the chalet for close to a year but, thankfully, was there in early February. I noticed many of the things discussed above and addressed most of them.
Lots of room and all of the amenities we wanted.
Our stay was wonderful. The home met our expectations and was perfect for a family gathering and amazing ski holiday.
