Our trip to Golden BC and our stay at Back To The Land was amazing. The B&B was immaculately clean, nicely decorated and was a great location for what we had planned for our trip. Sandy and Patrick were great hosts and provided excellent suggestions for our daily sight seeing trips, Sandy's breakfasts were sensational and provided us with great energy to start the day. We really enjoyed Kicking Horse Mountain and even manage to see Boo the Grizzly Bear. Lake Louise, Lake Moraine and Emerald Lake were absolutely stunning. We definitely would recommend this Bed and Breakfast if you are planning a trip to B.C.

We stayed at Back to the Land B&B in Golden BC from June 21-28, 2019. We were greeted by Sandy & Patrick the day we arrived and were taken to our Purcell Room on the upper level of their home. This room was spectacular. We had the most comfortable King sized bed, flat screen television with satellite, 4 piece ensuite bathroom and an amazing view of the mountains off the balcony of our suite. We shared a beautiful relaxing common area on the upper floor with guests in the Yoho suite which was stocked with water, juice, coffee, tea and everything need to sit, relax and unwind after our long days of sightseeing. This eco-friendly home was beyond our expectations. Our hosts were so friendly and provided us with a lot of valuable information to make every minute of our trip wonderful. The breakfast provided to us every morning was first class and we filled our bellies enough that we didn't need to stop for lunch while we were out exploring the beautiful west coast sites. We hope to visit the west coast again some day and would definitely stay at this beautiful B&B. I can't recommend it enough.

Hi Tracy! Thanks so much for taking the time to write this generous review. We appreciate the time it took to do this. The Purcell room in our loft is indeed our most popular for the reasons you mentioned. We're glad you enjoyed the breakfasts and certainly hope you find your way back to our Rockies in the near future. Best wishes,

We planned a visit to Golden BC and selected Back to the Land Bed and Breakfast. We were not disappointed. Patrick and Sandy were excellent hosts. Sandy cooked each breakfast from scratch. Everyday was something different, and included a homemade treat! The food was spectacular. We rented the Columbia House, we had our own bedroom with sitting area and bathroom. The rooms were spotless, and had many touches that made you feel like you were at home. Our friends rented the other two rooms and were very happy with their accommodations. We met each morning at the dining room table to eat, whole enjoying breakfast Sandy would help us plan our day. She us very knowledgeable about Golden and the surrounding areas. We took her advise everyday and enjoyed a different side trip daily. Our friend was celebrating her birthday and Sandy put up balloons and made a special pancake breakfast that included a specialized chocolate that said Happy Birthday. Sandy has a special knack for decorating and providing very special touches to make you feel you are staying at your own home. My friends were so happy we selected this Bed and breakfast it helped make our trip a once in a lifetime experience. Thanks Sandy and Patrick

Thank you for this generous review. We are happy that you enjoyed our lower level Columbia Suite with the extra space and king bed. It's always a treat for us to help guests celebrate too! Thanks for choosing our B&B!

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since our stay at Back To The Land! I was searching through old photos, reminiscing on time spent and realized I haven’t posted my review!! How awful of me!
Sandy and Patrick, you have a truly wholesome, beautiful home you welcome the world into. Each day was perfect. My boyfriend and I can still feel the coziness of your beds and their organic cotton sheets (we miss them!). Waking up in the mountains is like no other! Your delicious food and coffee was a great start to our daily adventures, and you catered to my dietary needs without hesitation. You and Patrick both have so much knowledge on Golden and what it offers, whether it be a day of hiking, sightseeing, visiting surrounding towns or grabbing a bite to eat. You always helped plan our day and we could tell it genuinely brings you joy to help your guests enjoy their time spent in or out of Back To The Land.
Your property is gorgeous. You take so much pride in your home and it shows. From the big, cozy fireplace outside facing the mountains surrounded by plants and flowers, to every last detail in your home, you really tie beauty and comfort into a stunning, environmentally friendly, homey package. It was wonderful getting to know you both and meeting other travellers from around the globe. We miss it there and can’t wait to be back. <3

I stayed here for two night this past weekend. The property is very beautiful. My room was impeccably clean and Sandy is a great cook. Sandy and Patrick both take great pride in the choices they've made to make their guests comfortable. The bed was probably the best bed I've ever slept on away from home. There is a choice of FOUR different kinds of pillows! I also very much enjoyed the deep soak tub -- what a treat after a long day out in the woods. My one small criticism would be that I wasn't aware that "lower level" meant basement. I found the space a bit dark and didn't enjoy the sound of the air circulator....all in all a great place to stay and would highly recommend.

We're happy to receive this review from you, thank you so much! Feedback is always appreciated. I'm surprised to hear that you didn't quite like the vibe of our lower level Columbia Suite. It is a very popular room for its quietness, disconnection to the rest of the house, and its cool interior on hot summer days. To clarify though, our lower level is not a basement per se because it is a walkout with separate entrance and terrace. Online booking agents such as BookingCom and Expedia do not allow us latitude to write our own descriptions of the rooms so this is a limitation out of our control. Our website however details exactly what each room offers. I wish you had told us that you were not 100% satisfied with the Columbia Suite...we could have moved you to a loft-level room easily. As to the desk top air purifier, we simply provide this for guest comfort and it is easily turned on or off by guests as desired. We regret this was a nuisance for you. You were a pleasure to host and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay overall. Best wishes for safe travels in future! Sandy & Patrick
