private, outdoor, 7-person hot tub with views of the mountains. Get a great foot or back massage!
A winter haven when the deep snow falls. Light the wood-burning stove and relax.
There are gorgeous mountain views from the south facing hot-tub deck
At the heart of the downstairs living space is a wood-burning stove which exudes a wonderful warmth.

“Fabulous New Year's - relaxed and homey stay, but with HOT TUBBIN!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2011 for a stay in January 2011

Great place. Spacious, clean, cozy, gorgeous lot and view of the mtn from the hot tub after a wicked day skiing. It's a winter wonderland. I can hardly wait to go back in the summer and enjoy the sunny decks and walks through the forest behind the house!!

“Lovely comfortable cabin near great downhill and back-country skiing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2011 for a stay in February 2011

Very comfortable beds. Nice fireplace with gear drying rack. Large comfortable hot tub with great views to the mountains across the valley. Easy 5 min drive into Golden, 15 minute drive to Kicking Horse ski hill, 30 min to Rogers Pass back-country skiing. Even with the 7 adults we had, there was still plenty of room for cooking, eating, gear storage and relaxing. Wifi worked with no hitches to get weather reports and avalanche info. Very clean throughout!

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2011 for a stay in January 2011

I stayed there over New Years 2011. The cabin, the snow, the fire place and the hottub were all perfect. We skied at Kicking Horse and toured around Roger's Pass. This is what you think of when you think of a cabin in the wood's.You can't see another place from the cabin, just trees and a view of the mountians.

“Super Place to Stay - comfy and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2011 for a stay in February 2011

A group of us stayed at this fabulous comfortable cabin in Feb 2011.
The cabin is very well laid out, everything we needed was there. (kitchen, fireplace, music, tv, wi-fi internet) The beds were very comfortable, the hot tub is perfectly located on the side of the cabin with terrific views and very private.
Two of us went to Kicking Horse ski resort - an easy 15 minute drive up to the hill. The rest of the gang went to Rogers Pass for b/c skiing - again easy access. Dowtown Golden for shopping and provisions is 5 minutes away - perfect. bonus - There is a great drying rack system for all your gear after a day of activities.

“Great getaway - cozy log cabin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2011 for a stay in February 2011

We went to the cabin with a bunch of friends for a well deserved weekend away from the kids - and it was just as promised! Winter - wonderland on you doorstep; wood burning stove, really cozy and relaxing. Bedrooms are fairly spacious, hot tub was great - and the overall experience was just fantastic (did I mention it was weekend without kids.....)!

The cabin is tucked away from the road - but we found it quite fast to go to Golden to stock up on supplies. Easy anyway because we went for a day of backcountry skiing at rogers pass and a day at the resort (25 minute drive to Kicking Horse). Way better than staying in one of the hotels in town. We had 7 people in the cabin - didn't feel cramped and brought the price down to less what you'd pay in a hotel in Golden.

Great place, definitely recommended.

“Serenity in the mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2011 for a stay in September 2010

Great place to stay, secluded & private set in a lovely spot. Cosy cabin with superb hot tub and lovely decor. Spacious bedrooms and great living space on the ground floor with exposed wood beams adding to the country cabin feel. Kitchen is fun to cook great meals for friends & open concept keeps everyone involved. Wood burning fire adds to the cosy, warm feel and is efficient. Great mtn biking trails not far from the cabin lovely fall riding.

“Cabin prima, location weniger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 for a stay in July 2013
Google Translation

Wir haben eine nette Unterkunft in der Nähe des Yoho, Glacier und Kootenay Parks gesucht nachdem wir von Lake Louise (go see Skoki Lodge!) gekommen sind. Einige locals (= BC residents) meinten Golden sei ein nettes Städtchen - wenn man mit nett ein relativ heruntergekommens Kaff meint dann stimmt das. Im Sommer ist Golden eher eine kleine Industriestadt, das mag im Winter anders sein aber wir waren im Sommer dort. Man findet in Golden alles was man braucht aber das war es auch schon. In den Yoho Park zu kommen war relativ Problemlos, ich würde Golden noch immer Lake Louise vorziehen. In Field zu übernachten mag noch praktischer sein aber Field ist im Prinzip nur eine Ansammlung von 30-40 Häusern und das war es auch schon. Also besser von Golden pendeln...

Die Cabin selbst liegt ausserhalb von Golden in den Hügeln... und in diesen Hügeln leben eben die Hillbillies inklusive privater Auto Schrottplätze direkt vor deren "Anwesen" (=Trailer Home). Mich stört das weniger weil man von der Cabin aus nichts davon mitbekommt aber meiner Frau war das irgendwie ein wenig unangenehm.

Die Location zusammen mit dem Preis verdient ein Preis/Leistungverhältnis von gerade noch genügend. Aber viel Glück in der Nähe von Yoho was besseres zu finden!

Die Cabin selber ist sehr nett. Gross und mit allem was man braucht. Internet ist ausreichend schnell und wir haben uns 2 von den 4 Tagen auch nur mal in der Cabin/Hot Tub/Garten auf die Faule Haut gelegt. Einfach ein paar Sockeye Lachs Filets (gibt es frisch im Supermarkt für 9 EUR das kg) auf den riesigen Grill gelegt und auf dem Patio Wein getrunken.

Die Vermieterin Jo ist sehr nett und wohnt 1 km weiter falls man etwas braucht.

Es ist wirklich nicht einfach für Yoho etwas zu finden... für uns war die Cabin ein guter Kompromiss und wir haben eine Nacht verlängert.

PS: vorher auf Google Maps anschauen wo die cabin ist und dann sicherstellen dass das GPS sie auch korrekt findet. Dann gibt es kein Problem!
