“Magical and Serene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

I stumbled upon this place on the internet and just knew I had to visit! I booked the adventure chalet for my our second aniversary and we were not disappointed. This place far exceeded my expectations, and they were high! The chalet sits in beautifully groomed gardens with a breath taking view of kicking horse mountain. Despite other chalets being near by, the silence was amazing - it was just so peaceful, relaxing, and serene. We enjoyed BBQ-ing on our private deck, and having a relaxing soak with a nice glass of wine in the hot tub. Kitchen has everything you could want and more, and the bed is so comfy. Perfect for a romantic getaway! The owners were so welcoming and friendly as well. I cannot wait to return to this little gem.

My wife and I recently stayed for 4 nights in the Adventure Chalet which we found to be really cozy and well equipped with lovely views from the deck. Although we had been warned that there was the possibility of being disturbed by the construction of new chalets (and being given the option of canceling without charge or having a discount) this did not affect us in any way.

As so many people have commented Shannon and Darrin were very friendly, welcoming and helpful - obviously people who know the true meaning of customer service.

The location provided the ideal base for our exploration of the Golden area and Yoho National Park.

We ate in the restaurant on our final evening as an "end of vacation" treat. The meal was absolutely superb - Max's excellent cooking skills and Sabine's attentive service made for a wonderful end to a great holiday.

As others have said before me - highly recommended if you want a special getaway in the mountains

Hello! Thanks for the great review!

We are currently building two new chalets at the far end of our property. We notified all of our guests as we understand people come for a relaxing vacation. Almost everyone still wanted to come despite the construction!

As our property is so spread out it is great that the construction noise is kept to a minimum in most of the chalets. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return soon!

My boyfriend and I recently stayed in the Cedar Chalet. At first when we arrived we weren't sure how it was gunna go because it was right beside the resteraunt. Were we ever wrong! Both nights we were there we didn't hear any noise from the resteraunt. This was by far one of the most amazing places we have ever stayed!! The chalet was so clean, and it had everything you could possibly need! Darrin was also amazing. He really made us feel comfortable and at home. He even left us a bottle of wine when we arrived! I highly recommend this place for anyone that wants a nice getaway in the mountains.

Hi! Thank you so much for your review!

The Cedar Chalet is located between the restaurant and the office. However due to its private deck, and also the fact that all of our chalets have their own green space around them, it is usually very quiet!

We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return soon!

Upon arriving we went immediatelly to our Sun suite, it was a very spacious suite, full kitchen, dining and sitting area. There was even a bottle of wine waiting for us, thanks Darrin.
When we were there they just started work on 2 extra chalets, we were not disturbed in the least by this. darrin was very friendly and hospitable. The location is excellent, situated near Golden (5 minutes drive) and in between Yoho and Glacier National park.

We will recommend this to all our friends.

Thank you for the review!

We are very excited that we have started construction on two new chalets! We had informed all of our guests who would be staying with us during construction periods and most of our guests have still decided to stay despite the construcion - we must be doing something right!

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the sun suite and we hope you will return soon!

I booked a surprise getaway for two very special people in my life, and Darrin and Shannon were absolutely wonderful in helping me blow their socks off. They organized a gift card for the restaurant and even went into town to buy a bottle of bubbly and a card. Everything was ready in the chalet prior to arrival. Now that's what I call service! As for my brother and sister-in-law - the lucky recipients of all this - they said Cedar House is quite simply the loveliest place they have ever stayed and can't wait to take us there. Yes please!

So we were looking for a place that we could go, take the fur baby, and relax. We found it and did NOT want to leave!
From the moment I booked the cabin to the moment we left we had an exceptional experience. We spent a while looking for a pet friendly, private cabin. My husband found this place and after reading reviews we decided to spend a little bit more and book this place. And it really is worth the money.
The cabin we stayed in was called the Garden Cabin. As we entered our new home for the weekend we were amazed at how clean, tidy and the fantastic quality this cabin offers. Shannon had left us a note explaining about the local bear that had been seen that morning so we were extra careful around the grounds as we had our dog with us. After we had settled in we went to the office and met Shannon in person. She was extremely polite and friendly. Nothing was too much bother. Shannon made us a copy the walking map and told us the best paths to explore. She even offered the can of bear spray just in case. After a nice walk and some hot tub time we did nothing but relaxed. So much so that we didn't want to get ready for the meal at the restaurant. I am glad we managed to find the motivation to go as the food was excellent. All in all a perfect getaway and we will be returning.

Thanks for the AMAZING review!!

While we are very close to town...we are also very close to the wilderness! As winter nears we have had many sightings of our neighbourhood black bear...and we definitley like to keep guests informed if he is around!

As we are a smaller business we are able to spend a bit more time with guests and enjoy letting them know about our favourite spots in Golden!

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you return again soon!

We stayed in the Adventure Chalet with our two kids, aged 5 and 7. The kids loved the rustic feel of the cabin, and we loved the cleanliness, and all the thoughtful touches that made our stay very comfortable. We went for a fun hike, with breathtaking views, ate dinner at the amazing restaurant, and had a dip in the hot tub while watching the sun dip behind the mountains. Very peaceful and relaxing!

Hi!

Thanks for the awesome review. The Adventure chalet is perfect for a family with small kids - the pull out bed fits two little ones perfectly! It is also a great chalet for a couple celebrating a special occasion to spend a night or two. The hot tub on the deck does have an AWESOME view of a sunset down the valley and with views over to kicking horse resort.

A perfect spot for a getaway - and usually nobody wants to leave!!
