Wow, what a place. Beautiful, new, but traditional handmade cabin in the woods. Peaceful. Perfect.

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the cabin. On our last morning, huge flakes of snow fell for a few hours and we felt like we were the feature in a snow globe; it was picture-perfect. The cabin has lots of good-sized windows, so you can really see the forest to the sides and back of the cabin. We were also impressed that the windows all open in two directions: at the top and at the side (depending how you turn the handle). For anyone who is leery of being too deep in the woods, not to worry: the country road is out front of the cabin, but because you are nearly at the end of the road, there is no traffic. Also, you can drive up to within about 2 feet of the door so it's super easy to load and unload your vehicle. We were also impressed by all of the safety features: CO monitors, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, even rope ladders! It's a lovely "backcountry" experience that is still near a town: our hosts dropped by with fresh cream from their cows, and we bought some fantastic multi-coloured eggs from their children, who are looking after the hens and saving money for big purchases. We're all feeling very refreshed by the fresh air and the feeling of having gotten away from it all for the weekend.

What a delightful and luxurious ‘rustic’ cabin. This cabin has a ‘rustic’ feel with all the luxurious comforts to make the stay super-comfortable. In such a picturesque landscape one can’t help but stand at the window and gaze out into the amazingly serene and beautiful British Columbia wilderness. Our kids put the ipad away and romped through the woods, chopped wood and split kindling for a roaring fire in the woodstove and spent the evening laughing and enjoying a family evening in the warm and comfortable cabin. The beds were even more comfortable than our own at home. The kitchen is convenient and very well supplied. Lots of hot water washed off the day of skiing and playing in the snow. We felt like we were secluded in our own piece of paradise but only twenty minutes from the quaint village of Golden. Our hosts seem to have thought of everything possible to make this a pleasurable stay that will be remembered for years to come. We long to return again and again.

Superb accommodation in a quiet, rural setting off the beaten path. Don’t pass up on an opportunity to stay here, explore the region and take advantage of the skiing. The cabin is everything Chad describes in words and photos and is nothing short of perfect. Thanks again for having us!

Just came back from a few beautiful days at Chad's amazing cabin. Great location, clean and very cozy. I needed a quick get-away with my 17 year old son and this place delivered perfectly. Ski toured in Rogers Pass one day (about 40 minutes to Rogers Pass Center) then ski'd Kicking Horse the next. Cooked some great dinners and had some much needed one on one time. My son actually put down his phone and chopped wood - imagine that! We will definitely be back.

Loved our stay at Chad s place. First the wood work on the chalet is beautiful it is nice to stay in an authentic space. We used it as a base to ski at Kicking Horse and even did a day trip to Revelstoke which was no trouble at all. The chalet is super well appointed, comfortable and perfect for relaxing after a long day out. Will definitely be back when coming to the area.
The log cabin was absolutely gorgeous! It has a very peaceful atmosphere and we really appreciated the attention to details in the furnishing. They even have these fantastic European style windows! The wood stove was super easy to use and we were amazed how long it can last while still heating the place. The view of the forest from the balcony was also very relaxing, we really felt we had the entire forest to ourselves. Our kids loved the loft, definitely the highlight for them :). We will definitely come back as it is a perfect get-away close to great places such as Rogers Pass and Kicking Horse.
We were the first ones in this brand new cabin in the woods and we had an amazing time. Everything was super clean and well organized ! Chad was quick to answer and we got delicious pork chops and eggs from his farm. The cabin is superb and perfectly located for what we came for : ski touring in Golden and Rogers Pass. I highly recommend this accommodation for remote good times :) thanks again for everything !!

We loved this little cabin! It was a great space to share with friends. Everything was really clean and the beds were very comfortable!
Thank you Chad and Evie for the great weekend in your cabin. The setting is beautiful. Nestled in the trees with gorgeous mountain scenery all around was stunning. My kids and I totally enjoyed all the comforts the cabin provided. Even though it was -20 on two of the nights we were there, we had the woodstove keeping us very warm. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. Chad gave us some pork chops to try. His family raises pigs on their farm. The barbecue on the deck of the cabin grilled that meat to perfection. The beds were comfortable and clean. I would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to enjoy the beauty of nature while only being 15 minutes away from the town of Golden. Thanks again guys. I will definitely be back. Bernie T
