About The Owner

We are a family of six, and have been dreaming of owning a property at this awesome hill, for many years. We are from England, but moved to Canada in 2001 and have never looked back. We first visited Kicking horse mountain, in the summer of 2001 when it was in its infancy, but immediately fell in love with the ski hill, surrounding area, incredible views from the top of the mountain the awesome 'Eagles eye restaurant' at the top of the mountain - and of course the projected plans for the hill, which are still being realized.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Melanie,

We had a great long weekend up at your beautiful cabin! Thank you sooo much for having us, as the time was well enjoyed. Two of my party were fortunate enough to see a momma black bear with her cubs.

.......your cabin was more than we could have imagined and we all thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend!

Thank you,

Fabulous Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

As a family of five, we traveled to Golden for a week and enjoyed our stay at the Kicking Horse Cabin Retreat tremendously. The house was stunning - all the furnishings were very comfortable and the kitchen was well-equipped. The views were fabulous and we enjoyed morning coffee on the balcony each day. Working with the owners was a joy, and we were able to receive prompt responses to our inquiries leading up to and during our stay. Would highly recommend this rental to all!

Beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious, beautiful house in the woods within walking distance to the ski hill. We were there in the summer and enjoyed the gondola and visiting boo the bear. Golden has a lot of activities for all ages!! The ppl that own this house are easy to reach and answer any questions in a reasonable amount of time. We had 12 ppl staying with us and there was plenty of room for everyone it was nice that were so many bathrooms in the house.

Stayed hear while on a golf trip with friends. The house accommodated seven men really easily. The golf course is reasonably close. Owners were very accommodating. I would definitely rent this place again.

Beautiful home at a great ski hill!

  • 5 of 5

Our large group had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house. The owner was very helpful and easy to reach with questions. The home had plenty of space for our large group, including lots of parking. The hot tub is perfect after a ski day. The kitchen even has some quality cookware! It's a a 2 minute ski down to the gondola. We would happily stay here again!

Perfect ski- in/ski-out cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this place justice. There is tons of space and beds. Added to that you can ski right to the front door. You can either do a very short walk to a cat track that takes you to the lodge for the ski out or you can just ski down the road to another track that also takes you to the main lodge. The place was set up with everything you need including a nice big hot tub to sooth your legs after a long day of boarding/skiing. It's beautiful inside and has lots of fun decor. Mel is a great host, she's friendly and prompt and made sure we had everything we needed. I will 100% stay here again next time we go to kicking horse. PS- we also had 15-20 cm of powder on the last day as a nice send off :)
