“Quality cabin in beautiful and quiet surroundings”
Reviewed July 8, 2012 for a stay in November 2011

We stayed at Smiley Wolf for a relaxing weekend in November. The cabin is top quality: the kitchen is rather well equipped, the beds are perfect and with two bathrooms and a hot tub there's plenty of opportunity for a soak. The large plot provides privacy yet it's not remote. Golden is just a five minute drive and has everything you'll need, while there's virtually unlimited opportunity to enjoy the outdours in the immediate surroundings.

“Great place to warm up after a day in the outdoors”
Reviewed October 25, 2011 for a stay in October 2011

The Smiley Wolf was a great place to return to after a day spent canoeing and fishing at local lakes. The chill of the fall day was easily replaced by the warmth of the hot tub and wood stove. There was lots of room for my young sons and the three adults in our party to relax in comfort. Property manager is very helpful and everything is as advertised!

“Super cozy and relaxing”
Reviewed April 22, 2011 for a stay in January 2011

We've stayed at Smiley Wolf twice now in the winter and have thoroughly enjoyed both of our visits. This cabin is nestled in the trees on Mount Seven, just outside of Golden. A round trip from the house to the grocery store in Golden and back again takes less than half an hour (and that includes time in the grocery store!). It is only about 30 min from door to lift at Kicking Horse Mountain or the Dawn Mountain ski trails and very close to several local hiking and biking trails. But beyond the benefits of the location, there is something just special about this place. It is impossible to feel anything but relaxed when you walk in the door. The log walls, wood-burning stove, hot tub, open kitchen all invite you in and say "sit down and enjoy!" The bedrooms are very well appointed with log furniture and very comfortable beds, and the main floor is stocked with everything you need for a wonderful break from the real world. Oh, and I almost forgot.... just outside the cabin your little ones will find a pint-sized play house that promises to provide hours of entertainment (at least it did for my kids!). And if you are travelling with kids, there is a lovely old claw-footed tub in the upstairs bathroom....

“Fabulous New Year's - relaxed and homey stay, but with HOT TUBBIN!!!”
Reviewed April 4, 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!”
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”
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”
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.
