About the property

Coziest log cabin ever! Mountain views, hot tub, close to National Parks

Experience the rustic elegance of this handcrafted log home, Grey Owl Lodge.

Take in the mountain views and breathtaking countryside from anywhere in and around the lodge. Relax in the hot tub after a day of skiing at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, just 25 minutes from the lodge. Kick back after touring any of 4 National Parks, all within an hours drive. Your only regret will be that you didn't stay longer.

The upstairs sleeping loft includes queen bed and 2 twin beds with cozy duvets and high quality linens as well as a bathroom with sink and toilet. The tranquil upper deck is complete with hammock swings, a great place to watch the sun come up over the mountains and horse paddock, or take in some star gazing.

The main level has a well equipped kitchen with stainless appliances and eating bar, dining area with views of the Rocky and Purcell Mountain Ranges. Open concept living room with a super comfy queen size pullout sofa and plenty of comfy chairs to take in a movie. The lodge is equipped with wireless internet and includes a smart tv and wireless soundbar. Additional covered decks on the main level, including the screened in hot tub deck, with a 6 person Beachcomber hot tub. Another deck for barbequing and lounging, with amazing views of the Purcell Mountains and Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.

Downstairs, includes a cozy seating area around the wood stove and plenty of room to hang and dry your gear after a day of mountain activity. Another queen size bed completes this space. The main bathroom with toilet, sink and bathtub/shower is also downstairs as well as high efficient laundry machines.

Take a stroll around this 20 acre property which includes outdoor fire pit, horses, meadows, ponds and forest, you may even see our resident Great Grey Owl. Pixie, our famous host dog, will be happy to give you a tour.

About Kristin Schellenberg

We have lived in Golden for 14 years and we live in a log cabin on the adjacent property to Grey Owl Lodge. We will be available to greet guests on arrival and answer any questions, but otherwise you will have exclusive use of the 7 acres surrounding the lodge. I have 3 young girls and spend my days chasing them around and managing several other properties.

Kristin Schellenberg purchased this lodge in 2012

Why Kristin Schellenberg chose Golden

This property is paradise. With it's wide open views and vast expanses of space, combined with majestic cedar forest and wildflower meadows. The birds sing loud and the stars shine bright at Grey Owl Lodge. We chose this property as a place to get back to nature and Grey Owl Lodge portrays all that is natural.

What makes this lodge unique

The log homes on this property were handcrafted by a local cowboy that has since passed on. The logs were milled from and on this property and you can feel the quality of workmanship that went into the lodge. We love the old paddock fences and worn in outbuildings that give this place such character.

Perfect place in Golden!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice lodge, well equipped for everything you might need. The view from the kitchen and the hot tub is absolutely gorgeous. We were 5 guys in a skiing trip and we had enough place to very comfortable. Everybody enjoy the place and if we are coming back in BC next year, it would be definitely at the Grey Owl lodge. Can't recommand the place more

Beautiful cabin

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The kitchen is very well equipped. The hot tub was lovely.

My only mild complaint is that the main floor was quite cool. There is a wood fireplace on the lower level which when stocked hot really heats up the lower level but not the main living level.

There are space heaters on the main level and 2 on the top level and in hind site we should have brought one of the upstairs heaters down.

Owner's Response: Thank you, for your input. I wish you had mentioned this while you were here, so we could have adjusted the heating for you. We’ve never had this complaint before, but we will keep it mind for future cold snaps. Thank you, for staying with us.

Beautiful and private property

  • 5 of 5

It was easy to get in when we arrived. The house is stocked with everything I could imagine. I loved the location. It was private yet still only 20 minutes to the ski hill. I would highly recommend staying at this place!

Kicking Horse Mountain Resort
Car: recommended

Local attractions include summer and winter activities at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. We are in between 3 National Parks for plenty of hiking, rock climbing and ski touring opportunities. Lots of local fishing spots and opportunities for horse backing riding along the Blaeberry River nearby. The Kicking Horse River is world renowned for white water rafting and kayaking. For a mellower approach, the Columbia wetlands provide excellent canoeing, paddle boarding and flat water activities as well as excellent bird viewing. The town of Golden has weekly farmers markets during the summer months as well as free weekly outdoor concerts. Cedar Lake is a favorite swimming hole for those hot summer days and the outdoor swimming pool is great as well.

During the winter months, you can snowmobile directly from Grey Owl Lodge into the alpine, or trailer to many other great spots. Skiing and snowboarding are among the favorite local winter sports. Many great cross country ski areas including Dawn Mountain, the Blaeberry River or ski from Grey Owl Lodge up to amazing viewpoints. The adventures are endless.
