Fantastic Mountain Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

As a family we are relatively well traveled and have stayed in a variety of accommodations over the years and we can say without a doubt the Golden Acres Mountain Lodge ranks at the top. Cathy and Bruce have created a top notch, stunning, memorable, and comfortable retreat close to Golden, BC and just a short hop up to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.

We stayed in the main lodge, the loft is a separate building, and access to your room and shared great room are just a few short steps from your parking spot.

The well appointed suite is very large, more than 600 sq/ft with a private full master bath, comfortable bedding, couch (which doubles as a pull out and worked well for our children), and chairs to sit and read, relax, etc after a full day exploring the area. The bedroom exits into a large shared space (with one other room on the same level), with a small but well stocked kitchenette (refrigerator, sink, microwave, coffee maker, etc.), multiple comfortable couches, wood fireplace, eating space and a TV with a huge selection of movies (in addition to satellite TV). You could not ask for a more comfortable space to spend the evening relaxing, and that's before you get to the hot tub!

And . . . each morning comes with a fantastic, carefully prepared breakfast. In short, wow! The breakfast was plentiful, delicious, prepared and presented with much thought.

Bruce and Cathy are personable, caring, and excellent hosts. Their accommodations are top notch and would highly recommend this to anyone coming through the area, you'll not regret your choice.

We spent four nights here and are already planning a return trip. The accommodations were first-class and the owners lovely. Breakfast each morning was a delight cooked by Cathy and Bruce. Highly, highly recommend.
