About the Property
A Two Bedroom Cabin Nestled Between The Purcell Mountains And 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.

"Thanks so much River House! We had an excellent stay here. The house and location is beautiful! We enjoyed eating dinner at the picnic table and using the fire pit to toast marshmallows.

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

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.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Columbia-Shuswap A, BC, Canada:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
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!
