A Two Bedroom Cabin Nestled Between The Purcell Mountains And Blaeberry River
Grant and Antoinette
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!

Clean cabin in the middle of nature
The owners really go all out to make sure the cabin is well equipped and ready for your stay. We arrived just after a large snowfall of >30cm and found the walk and driveway already plowed.
The kitchen is well stocked for 6+ people.
Toilet paper and soaps are provided.
Lots of towels.
Hot tub is warm and just out the rear door with an easy to remove cover.
Owners are next door in their own cabin; this helped when the BBQ an out of propane.
The owners do have dogs on site and one of them visited us a couple times. The dog was very friendly and didn't bother us.
This cabin is pet friendly. We did not bring any animals and found no obvious signs (like hair or chewed furniture).
I would stay here again.
Beautiful location and cozy cabin
I will be renting this cabin again. We were 3 guys and plenty of room for 3 more. We pulled in the driveway with a sled trailer and had no issue backing out. The cabin is clean and well equipped kitchen. Internet worked great. The location is awesome and super quiet. Great place to bring a family.
We really enjoyed our stay here. The property is beautiful (its a little distance from Golden, so be aware if you forget something). We did experience a power outage (cabin life right?!) and it was tremendously cold out. We luckily had the fireplace to keep us warm and Antoinette brought over more candles. The outage only last a few hours but it's something to keep in mind as it does happen. Otherwise, excellent stay.
Mountian get away.
We were looking for a quiet peaceful get away to recharge, our first nights away from our baby. The Riverhouse delivered just that! The house was cozy and comfortable, just what we wanted! We enjoyed sitting in the hot tub, gazing at the mountains during the day and watching the stars at night. The Riverhouse was a wonderful retreat!
Great weekend getaway
Wonderful cabin in a picturesque location. Has everything you need.
It was wonderful !
We can’t wait to come back!
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.
