Luxury in the wilderness. Custom built log home.

About Cathy and Bruce Riddell
We purchased this property in June 2012. All that was on the site was weeds, trees, and a water well. We cleared the land, built a road, brought in power, septic system, and connected the water well. We started construction on the carriage house immediately and two years later began construction on the main lodge. Total construction was over five years to complete all buildings. Majority of the work was completed by us with specialized areas contracted out, such as the unique log work. This is a one of a kind custom hybrid log home with special features. We have been dreaming of running a bed and breakfast for over 30 years. We both wanted to have something to do in our retirement years. We love meeting new people and hearing their stories. We take pride and enjoyment when our guests enjoy our home and breakfast. All breakfasts are homemade and contain local ingredients. Our vision is to provide an upscale holiday experience in a well equipped spotless home with high-end bedding and luxurious furnishings. Cathy began cooking for her large family when she was only ten years old and has taken a number of culinary courses over the last twenty years. She also has all her recipes tested by Bruce before serving to guests. Bruce is handyman extraordinaire as he deals with all maintenance in and around the property. His engineering background provides him with the knowledge and skills to fix almost anything.

Why Cathy and Bruce Riddell chose Golden
Over the last thirty years, we have spent countless hours in the Columbia Valley area hiking, camping, snowshoeing, and fishing. We fell in love with the beauty of this area and decided to purchase land to share with our friends and family.

Getaway in the woods
This place was a great home base for us to explore Banff and Jasper parks. It’s about an hour drive from the park entrances, but it’s a lovely drive.
Bruce and Cathy were very accommodating and professional. Their space is beautiful and the breakfasts were simply delicious.
Beautiful scenery, wonderful owners… amazing food
