Overview

About the property

A Two Bedroom Cabin Nestled Between The Purcell Mountains And Blaeberry River

The River House is a secluded cabin nestled between the Purcell Mountains and the Blaeberry River.

The River House is a two bedroom cabin, which sleeps 4 adults and 2 children. It has a full kitchen, fireplace, hot tub, t.v., blue-ray, internet and laundry facilities.

The River House is located on 8 acres of wooded land and is the only rental cabin on the property. The other house on the property is ours. You can wake up every morning and while eating breakfast watch a pair of bald eagles fish from the Blaeberry River. In the evenings watch a herd of elk drink from the river all while never having to leave the comfort of the River House.

The River House boasts peace and quiet, but for those that are looking for adventure, the House also includes the use of the 'shed'. In the shed there is a place to store and clean your equipment, which includes skis, bikes, sleds, ATVs, and all other equipment you may bring with you.

We appreciated the list of hikes and activities you gave to us, and thanks for being such welcoming hosts." Philadelphia USA

About Grant and Antoinette

We are a couple who work in Calgary but play in Golden. Golden is a short commute from Calgary and this property allows us to enjoy everything the mountains have to offer.

In the winter we can go skiing at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, or strap on our cross country skis and headed out for a day of touring from the deck.

In the summer we can drive up the road 7km for a beautiful day hike to a gorgeous waterfall. Or we can grab our fishing rods and step off the deck into the Blaeberry River.

Grant and Antoinette purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Grant and Antoinette chose Golden

This property was purchased because it is a location where we can play all year round. We love the fact that this cabin is the only rental cabin on the property and we are surrounded by 8 acres of wooded seclusion. This allows us to get away from the hustle and bustle of Calgary, AB and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

We love to sit on the deck in the evenings with friends/family and listen to the Blaeberry River or in the mornings drink a cup of coffee and watch the sun light up the beautiful Purcell mountains just outside the door step.

What makes this cabin unique

The best part of this property is that it allows us and everyone who stays with us to enjoy the complete seclusion of the Mountains, and yet is so close to all the mountain adventures that Golden has to offer. It truly is a place to get away from it all!

Wonderful house at the river

  • 5 of 5

The house was very spacious for us two. Very quite and private,better than at the photoes, we enjoyed it very much. Surroundings and the river are so relaxing and beautiful. Huge comfortable bed, all essentials in the kitchen provided, even coffe and tea. Good collection of dvds to watch in the evenings. The large hot tube was a great bonus. Easy communication with the host, Grant was in the house nearby And very helpfull if needed. We drive ti Emerald lake for hiking and Takakkaw falls, also did Buffulo ranch tour and half dag rafting -all highly recommended.

Simply a stunning property and location with excellent hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property near golden, BC for a week in July. Stunning location and scenery. River is just a few steps away at the bottom of the private garden. Property itself wants for nothing. Clean and very well stocked.

Owner lives on site but remains out the way unless required. Grant was very helpful with a few things during our stay including inviting us to watch the football at his house (their is no tv signal in the property) .

If you want a quiet secluded luxury getaway, look no further- this is it.

Golden is about 15 mins away and has everything you need regarding food shopping etc.

We will return. Thank you Grant and Antoinette

5 Star Plus!

  • 5 of 5

The River House exceeded my expectations - which were high to start with given the reviews and photos. We have stayed at quite a few properties booked through VRBO and this was one of the best ever. Highly recommend and hope to return.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The place is quiet and secluded, the house is clean. The scenery is better than the pictures.

The amenities are not quite as described. TV is listed as an amenity. There is a TV but no cable or satellite. This would have been fine if it wasn’t hockey playoffs. Internet is listed as an amenity but the welcome package states that they are on satellite internet and there should be no streaming. If you use too much data, you can be charged extra. We would have prepared differently if we had known the amenities were such.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and the scenery was better than described. I am sorry for the confusion over the TV and internet. We do promote our cabin as a secluded wilderness cabin which does cause some limitations in regards to services available vs in town or the city. Thank you for staying with us.

Although it is 15 minutes to Golden, the River House is steps away from the beautiful Purcell Mountains and the Blaeberry River. As well the Thompson Falls area is a 2 minute drive away from the River House which boasts beautiful water falls and sledding areas. The possibilities of activities is endless for this area, all you need is a little imagination and adventure.

If you are looking for peace and quite, the River House is a secluded location, perfect for artists, wildlife watchers, or someone who just wants to get away from it all.
