“Lovely accommodation and fabulous restaurant next door”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We stayed for just one night in the Green Chalet. We didn't arrive until nearly 5pm and so didn't meet the owners, but found the door unlocked and so let ourselves in. We found the chalet to be comfortable, well furnished and ideal for a longer stay if you wanted to cater for yourselves.

When we arrived, the rooms were rather cold, but soon warmed up once we had turned up the thermostat in the living room and bedroom and got the wood burning stove lit. We had booked dinner in the restaurant, which is located in a 'cabin' just a few steps away from our front door - which was very nice and certainly convenient. The food was fabulous and we could well understand why it has been so highly rated as one of the top 50 restaurants in Canada. At the end of our meal, we asked about breakfast for the following morning and were told about the Island Restaurant in Golden, which was very good indeed.

Whilst if you were staying several days you would come prepared with a range of groceries. If staying just one night, you probably wouldn't be quite so well equipped. Since there was a good range of teas and coffees in the kitchen, it would have been nice to have had some milk to make a drink - but we drank black coffee instead.

We enjoyed our overnight stay at Cedar House and will most certainly come again.

Thank you for your review!

We usually find that once the wood burning stove in the chalet gets going...the chalets become very hot! As such we usually leave the thermostats turned down a bit so guests can adjust to the temperature they feel most comfortable at. We have been asked before about milk...however as it is a perishable it is difficult to leave in the chalets. Our restaurant is AMAZING and we urge all our guests to give it a try when they are here! We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip!

Just came back from a long roadtrip, during which my friends and I had the pleasure of staying in Cedar House's Garden Chalet. The chalet was fantastic - a warm, cozy atmosphere, bottle of wine waiting on arrival, wooden fireplace blazing, and a hot tub all ready to relax in the snow. Really enjoyed my stay there and will 100% be looking to stay there again when I return to ski Kicking Horse mountain.

We recently enjoyed a 3 night stay in the Garden Chalet. It was the perfect size for our family of four. The Chalet was very clean, with a well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds and a hot tub located just a few steps from the balcony door. Owners,, Darrin and Shannon were very helpful and pleasant. We were on a ski vacation and found the chalet was well situated for access to Golden (5 min) and the Kicking Horse Ski Resort (about 20 min). This was our first visit to the Cedar House Restaurant & Chalets.....we hope to return again soon!

My wife and I stayed in June, just got round to writing review. It was a fantastic stay and the restaurant was superb. If your thinking of booking do it you won't stay anywhere better and the owners are really friendly

We just spent this past weekend in the Garden Chalet......So often the anticipation is the high point of trying a new place....This truly exceeded all of our expectations in every area. Our Chalet itself was very well stocked, very clean, very well decorated....the beds were awesome...being in the hot tub at night with a bit of softly falling snow out beyond the covered deck was magical as was the view across the valley when it cleared. All of this would have been perfect on it's own, the privacy, quiet, the peacefullness, the chalet itself but then we dined at the Restaurant....world class...presentation, staff, ambience...then the food....indeed a crowning touch to an already perfect weekend...Thank you.

We recently rented the Cedar House Chalet property for a 3-day family reunion to celebrate our mother’s 80th birthday. It couldn’t have been a more perfect venue. The Chalets are absolutely beautiful—they are well-built, tastefully decorated and very clean. Each Chalet is unique and has its own character, some are a little more quaint and rustic and others a little more spacious and luxurious. All are comfortable, cozy and high-end. Every Chalet had everything we needed and more (including fully equipped kitchens, wood burning stoves, washers & dryers, irons & ironing boards, flat screen TVs, DVDs, Wi-Fi internet, card games, hot tubs, bathrobes, slippers, extra towels & bedding, etc.). The owners have really thought of everything! Our mother stayed in the Sun Suite, which was spacious and perfect for congregating in because of the additional sun-filled Sun Room. The outdoor views are scenic and we were able to get some really great family photos that we will cherish. If there was anything we needed, we were just a short 5 to 10-minute drive to town.

We particularly liked the outdoor fire pit area with 13-log log stumps for sitting that is a near exact replica of the one our father built on his farm in Saskatchewan. (He built his with 13-logs stumps so there was one for mom and him and each of their 11 children). He passed in May so this was a reminder that he is forever near and close to our hearts.

Our only regret is that we weren’t able to try out the Cedar House Restaurant. We are impressed the owners grow their own organic produce for use in their dishes. Fortunately for us we have family members who live in Golden so we have an excuse to return for eats. The owners left us a lovely bottle of red wine that we will be sure to enjoy. Thank you Darrin and Shannon for helping to make our family reunion a success!

The entire experience was superb! Our last minute request was responded to promptly and the cabin we stayed at was gorgeous. What I really loved about the Green cabin we were in is all of the environmentally friendly design features (HUGE south facing windows, design promoting heat trapping and natural convection etc.).

The amenities were great too. A huge hot tub that could fit everyone, and lots of open space for meeting with the rest of the family. The Cedar House Restaurant, located 2min away from our front door, was also superb, and we recommend the Cedar House Chalet to all of our friends!

Keep up the good work guys :-)
