About Barb Davies

I love the beauty and natural landscape Golden has to offer. I am an avid outdoor enthusiast that can't seem to get enough of the great outdoors! I can often be found out on my cross country skis. Or in the summer months I'll be out for a run, enjoying a hike or soaking in beauty of the Blaeberry River. In my work life I share my passion for health and wellness with others. I can often be found perusing the shelves of a local health store, sourcing local food, or puttering in my kitchen making delicious food with a glass of wine in hand! I hope you enjoy this mountain retreat as much as we do.

A beautiful hideaway family sized cabin.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property in a lovely remote area of Blaeberry about 15 mins north of Golden. The directions to the property made it easy to find and we had no issues with access or communications with the owner. The cabin is spacious with everything you would need for a family to stay. The downstairs entertainment room with Netflix was a bonus on a rainy day and the rooms very all comfy. Only issue was a powercut after some heavy rain which was pre-warned when we arrived so not a concern, it was restored within hours. The town of Golden is really nice and we enjoyed a day up at Lake Louise which is about an hours drive. Due to the weather and forest fires (which were about 25 miles away) we didn't visit all the places we'd have liked so instead enjoyed our time at the cabin. Would definitely recommend and if we return would be staying here again, thank you!!

Great house in stunning location

  • 4 of 5

We spent 5 nights in this lovely house as a family of four. So much space, both indoor and out. The scenery surrounding the house is beautiful and the perfect house if peace and quiet is what you want. We had great summer weather and the area in and around Golden has so much to offer for family days out.

Beautiful home with a fabulous ambience

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home to go to a ski comp in Kicking Horse, it was closer than we expected under 40 minute drive and hardly any traffic.

Home was beautiful and well equipped, Barb was incredibly welcoming and helpful.

Beautiful Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for Christmas 2016. The cabin is beautiful and well-equipped for short and long stays, with a great kitchen containing all the gear you need to be self-sufficient. The layout worked well for our group (family of two adults/two children, one couple and one single) - the basement was perfect for the family, with two bedrooms and the kids playroom/TV room; the loft and single bedroom worked well for a couple and one single. The kids playroom was invaluable on quiet days when we stayed in. The cabin has beautiful large windows on the main and upper levels, which give great views and bring lots of natural light into the house. There's plenty of tourist information in the cabin, as well as books and games to keep you entertained. Many small details were thought of, such as having a snowman making kit (with scarf, buttons, carrot nose etc). The outdoor fire pit is great for toasting marshmallows. There is also a covered parking area, which was great for snowy days. One thing to be aware of is that it is 20-25 minutes from Golden, so about an hour round trip if you need to pick something up. It therefore pays to be organized, as it's not a short trip into town if you've forgotten or run out of something. The benefit, though, is that you do feel like you've gotten away from it all, as it's very quiet and peaceful at the cabin.
