About Claire Lefrancois

We are Claire and Matt. Having three grown children, we wanted a special place to come together and eventually retire. Golden, BC is that magical place, and Moonraker Mountain provides us with easy access to the activities we love: biking, hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, climbing, canoeing, fishing, swimming, white water rafting, paragliding... you name it!

Claire Lefrancois purchased this house in 2016

Why Claire Lefrancois chose Golden

Our family has camped within the Moonraker Trail system for years. Being able to experience the drama of Canyon Creek, the amazing wildlife, quiet forest trails, biking, swimming, fishing, and cross country skiing RIGHT FROM THE DOOR made this property too good to pass up. And now that we have fallen in love with the house, we have revamped our original plan to sever and sell it from the 120 acres. It truly is a destination in itself.

What makes this house unique

You have a beautiful, modern house in which to relax. You have space to play and NO fear of getting lost because our 120 acres is part of the Trailforks App system available on the Golden Cycling Club website. With this App, you can always see where you are on the land and how to get back to the house. Follow any trail your heart desires, and know you will always make it home.You can even follow that deer off the trail and still find your way back to a trail. It is one of the greatest outdoor tools ever!

Awesome and quiet stay!

  • 5 of 5

Hi, we have absolutely nothing to say but good words for our 3 nights stay at this clean and fully stocked property. Located in a quiet neighborhood while not being too secluded, with lots of room to walk on the acreage and direct access to the hiking / biking trails directly against the property line. Very confortable with the heated floors, cozy place and a nice blend of modern type and cabin type living. What more could you ask for! Definitely recommends.

Great for what we needed.

  • 4 of 5

Lots of privacy and quite location. No TV which we assumed there would be. 2 double beds the rest were either pullouts or futons. Not as clean as we'd have liked. The host were lovely people and very friendly

Owners are very responsive, very nice place, comfortable, clean, radiant floors feel good on the feet, kitchen is well equipped, views out the back are beautiful, pretty much everything you could ask for in a vacation rental.

Golden is the hub of all that makes the mountains so hard to leave. From Moonraker Mountain Mokki, you can experience the greatest calm to the most electrifying adventures. The Trails: The Golden Cycling Club's (GCC) Gudjonson Trailhead which leaves from our yard, connects you to over 100 km of trails. A 1.5 km trail climbs to the spectacular 200m gorge overlooking Canyon Creek. There are also old road beds on the mountain for access that is not as steep. Have no fear of getting lost because the Golden Cycling Club has a map app available to show you exactly where you are! Skiing and Snowmobiling: Kicking Horse Resort, rated N°7 best ski resort in Canada, is a 25 minute drive through Golden and up the mountain. At its doorstep, the Golden Nordic Ski Club grooms 33 km of skate and classic cross country trails. Back country skiers will also appreciate the variety terrain nearby. Snowmobilers can find groomed, low elevation trails or hardcore back country. Rent sleds or bring your own, and be sure to check out the local tour operators if you want some guidance. Paragliding, horseback riding and shuttle service up Mount 7 are steps away from the house. Whitewater rafting, back country ATV, golf, fishing, kayak/paddle board rentals, sky diving, ice/rock climbing, and walking with wolves are also possible in Golden. It's a great place to cross off many of those bucket list dreams!
