About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6 to 10

This spacious three-bedroom penthouse suite occupies 2880 sq. ft. on the top floor of a unique two story building in the town of Golden. Each of two large bedrooms have two XL twin beds that can be joined to make a king, plus a twin sofa bed.The third bedroom has two XL twin beds, which can be joined to make a king. The living room has a queen Murphy wall-bed.

The suite, which can accommodate up to ten people in comfort, and is priced well below comparable accommodation located on the ski hill, is a mere twelve-minute drive to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, with some of the best downhill skiing in North America.

It is also central for three other ski areas: Revelstoke is one and three-quarter hours further west along the Trans-Canada Highway; world-renown Lake Louise is one hour to the east; and Panorama is two hours south along Highway 95.

For cross-country ski lovers, Dawn Mountain hosted the 2012 Canadian Masters Championships and has over 30 kilometers of groomed trails ranging from beginner to advanced. Cross-country trails can also be found at the golf club.

If you need a day to rest aching muscles then the Radium Hot Springs are one hour away, or you can book a massage right here in Golden.

Golden is also a great location to base your snowmobiling adventure with 240 kilometers of groomed trails, 13 distinct zones and 4 maintained areas. Snowmobile rentals and tours can be arranged with Golden-based companies. Staying in Golden will transform a simple ski-vacation into a winter adventure.

For summer and fall hiking, Yoho National Park is only forty minutes away. We may be biased, but in all our travels we've never found scenery more majestic and beautiful. Golden's incredibly scenic golf course is only a few minutes' drive away.

The Columbia Valley is a major bird migratory route. Bring your binoculars and walk to the bird watching platform at Reflection Lake, just south of town. For history lovers, an hour or two will be enough to learn something of Golden's history in the small museum. Book lovers will enjoy browsing the new and used selections at Bacchus Books perhaps along with a coffee or bowl of home-made soup.

Golden is nestled in the Columbia Valley at the confluence of the Columbia and Kicking Horse Rivers. Surrounded by mountains, peaks of the Purcells are visible from the suite's living/dining room. Staying in-town means you are only a short walk from several good restaurants (so no worries about drinking and driving), burger joints and convenience food, a five-pin bowling alley, an outdoor swimming pool, outdoor tennis courts, a summer farmer's market, the cinema, grocery stores, an indoor skating rink, a skate board park and more.

Being in town also makes it possible to have catered dinners served in the Hidden Gem, or to order in pizza, if you are simply too tired after rafting the Kicking Horse whitewater, paragliding from Mount 7, floating through the Columbia wetlands, or strolling the Rotary Trail or alongside the Kicking Horse River.

Relax in this quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of the ski resort. Avoid the noise of grooming machines, of ski lifts starting up first thing in the morning, of rowdy drinkers and loud music from special on-hill events.

If you like the outdoors you will love Golden. Winter and summer you will enjoy this outdoor adventure hub. I moved to Golden as it has the best skiing in North America on par with Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Visit, and you too can enjoy this outdoor paradise.
