About Celeste Smith

We are a retiring couple from Saskatchewan and built this home in Golden as an investment and a vacation home. When building it, we upgraded everything from flooring, to cabinetry, to lights. We built it as our own house, and hope that our guests will treat it with the respect they would treat their own home.

Celeste Smith purchased this house in 2014

Why Celeste Smith chose British Columbia Rockies

A few years ago, our son went on a snowmobiling trip to Golden, and he did not have enough good things to say about the town and surrounding area. He said there were lots for sale in a new development. We soon went out there and bought a lot with some of the best views. We thought Golden was the perfect location because it is near the ski hill, has low-priced, high quality restaurants, all amenities, and isn't in a national park.

What makes this house unique

This house is very spacious, with high ceilings throughout, a magnificent view, and a very unique floor plan and design. The house was completely custom-built by a builder in Golden, and was designed by the owners.

Beautiful & comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

The home in Golden was clean, modern, spacious, comfortable and well equipped and located in a nice neighborhood. Everything worked and it was very comfortable. Golden was a fun and interesting town, with good shopping for groceries and restaurants. Also an easy drive to Kicking Horse Ski area and to the national parks (Yoho & Banff).

Booking and communicating with Celests was straightforward & easy and everything was as described and promised.

We would HIGHLY recommend this property to others, it is an excellent place to stay.

We enjoyed driving into the mountains on the west side of Yoho, visiting Yoho & the falls, and horseback riding in Banff National Park. We enjoyed Island Restaurant in Golden very, very much. However the grocery store provided ample supplies for excellent meals cooked at the property.

We had an excellent time, thank you!

Lovely home, enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

A very comfortable home that we used as a base for mountain biking. Nicely decorated and well constructed, we were happy to return to the house at the end of the day. We would definitely stay there again.

Great Vacation House in Golden

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house in Golden as a base for hiking in the Bugaboos, Glacier Nat Park, and Yoho. All told, we stayed for a week. After long days of hiking, we enjoyed relaxing in this modern, clean, spacious, and well laid out house. The kitchen was well equipped, there was a nice SONOS sound system, the large TV had Netflix, and there was a front loading washer and dryer to do all the laundry. The view of the mountains from the living area was excellent and the WiFi worked well. We found staying there so pleasant that we did most of our own cooking (some of it using the house's wood pellet grill) and did not go out that much to eat in restaurants. The place was a bit pricey, but the favorable US/Canada exchange rate helped a bit and we felt like it was well worth the cost.

Gourmet Heaven in Golden!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this home. Spacious, new, plus a really well equipped kitchen.

We spent our days white water rafting and hiking (try the trail to Wapta Falls in Yoho--spectacular!). It was fantastic to return each evening to enjoy the view from the deck and relax in style.

Thanks Celeste!
