About Celeste Milburn

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 Milburn purchased this house in 2014

Why Celeste Milburn chose Golden

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.

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our stay at your beautiful and comfortable home! We took amazing drives everyday to the National Parks and came home to our home away from home. All the amenities from a superbly stocked kitchen to very comfortable beds made us feel welcome. We loved sitting on the balcony watching the sunset and waiting for the deer to come up. Easily accessible from the highway.

Well equipped, thoughtfully laid out house with great amenities.

Especially love the racks and drying stuff in the garage.

This was our second time at this property and we will be back.

Golden BC stay February 2018

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable 6 night stay in Golden BC. House well equipped and very comfortable. One note of advice: if traveling in winter/ski season, the driveway is long and covered in snow to the extent that an AWD SUV with M+S tires was unable to get to the house on several days. Plan on parking at the street end of the drive to avoid getting stuck as we were.

Beautiful interior!

  • 5 of 5

The interior design of the living area and bedrooms is beautiful. I loved the "great room" feel of the upstairs living area, and the amazing use of wood. The temperature system, including floor heat, was adjustable for each room, allowing personalization and energy efficiency (although written instructions for the controls would be helpful). Shoes aren't allowed in the house, so it you don't like wandering on wood floors in bare feet, be sure to bring slippers. The TV/entertainment system was easy to use for both DVDs and Netflix access.

The kitchen was great for cooking, and the extensive array of utensils, pots, spices and condiments was one of the best I've seen in a rental. (Beyond "spices and condiments", there was a fair amount of food - and beer - presumably reserved for the owners. Labeled "owner" shelves in the cupboard and refrigerator would help.)

The house was in a peaceful location in the woods, with only distant road noise from Hwy 1, yet still a quick drive to town for stores and restaurants. For those planning to visit the national parks, it's important to realize that despite Golden's central location, it's still a long drive to park destinations (an hour to Glacier National Park or the start of the Icefields Parkway, 50 minutes to Emerald Lake in Yoho).

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review! It was a pleasure having you visit our home. Thank you for the suggestion about the labels... the food in the cupboard such as peanut butter, honey, baking ingredients, etc. can be used by everyone and the alcohol is more of a drink-and-replace system. We will make that more clear. Hope to talk to you again soon! Celeste
