About Mia McFadyen
We are a Canadian-Swedish family of 4 who love to ski, mountain bike, travel and adventure together. We have been spending our winter weekends and most other available weekends year round in Golden since 2012. We finally bought our 'home away from home' here, our Happy Place, in the fall of 2018.
Why Mia McFadyen chose Kicking Horse Mountain Resort
This area is really hard to beat when it comes to skiing, if you are a hard core ski lover! Before having children we would travel wherever the snow fell. We got to know many mountains in interior BC and Kicking Horse was one of the few where we could see ourselves go all the time once we had a family and those spontaneous, one day (sometimes long) trips, became more difficult. This hill offers so much exciting terrain and ability to do a lot of fun activities and sports. To us it offers the life style we were looking for. And of course, at any time of the year, these mountains and the valley offer simply amazing views and the spectacular terrain for adventures. In the summer there are multiple levels of mountain biking trails around, easily accessible from this property. For any outdoor enthusiast this is simply an amazing place to be!

Perfect family getaway
This was a fantastic spot to park our family for a week in Golden. We walked to the resort for some play time most days, and made easy trips to so many local spots, from Cedar Lake to downtown and the farmers market. This house was wonderfully set up for little kids, and there was plenty of space for our family of 5. We had everything we needed. Mia and Jim were great hosts - responding immediately when we called with a quick questions. We would come back here in a heartbeat!
Perfect mountain condo, 2 mnutes from the kicking horse resort
We very much enjoyed our stay at Mia's place. The building is very nice, the condo was spotless, the view was superb, and the area super quiet. The condo is tastefully decorated and stocked with quality cookware, plates and utensils. There is a mtb trail just a few steps from the condo, and we enjoyed the spa after our ride. Mia was very quick to reply whenever we contacted her. This was the perfect place for our stay in Golden. 5 stars!
Thank you for staying with us! We wish you a great continuation of your summer and travels and welcome you back should you visit this area again.
Comfortable and Relaxing Retreat
We were looking to stay somewhere that we could easily drive into Banff and Lake Louise, without the touristy chaos of those areas. This townhouse was a perfect fit for our family of five. It is six miles up a mountain, in a ski resort. It is very close to the lifts, which is brilliant for the winter months.
The townhouse is up one flight of stairs, so there was minimal stair climbing. Everything in the home is warm and welcoming, from the art to the layout. We utilized the outdoor grill, the patio and the jacuzzi every evening. The appliances (including washer/dryer) were user friendly. The cookware was high end and was a dream to cook with.
The location was approximately an hour to Lake Louise / Moraine Lake, and an hour and half to Banff. The drive is probably the most stunning drive I have ever been on. There are multiple places to pull off for a picnic / hike / retreat from the busyness of summer crowds in Banff.
The owner was responsive and instructions were clear and easy to follow. There was a deposit held at time of booking, in case of any damage to property, and it was refunded promptly after our stay.
All in all, I would highly recommend this place, and would love to stay there again, but longer than we stayed!
So glad you enjoyed your stay! Welcome back when your travels take you to this area again!
Great place to stay!
Really convenient, cozy and clean property! The hot tub was wonderful! The property had everything we needed and the owners were wonderful to communicate with. And of course, the views were gorgeous and you could walk to the resort for a fun outing!
Great, relaxing stay
Had a great stay right on the hill at Kicking Horse, very clean and comfortable, great hot tub with great views! All of the amenities we needed, couldn't ask for more. Easy to get to, and easy to access the unit, Mia and family were wonderful hosts!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review.
We enjoyed having you and are so happy you enjoyed your stay! Welcome back if you find yourself planning another trip to Kicking Horse or the Golden area! :)
