Guestbook comments from the owner

Incredible view,clean well kept home,beautiful private setting,truly for myself and my family a home away from home.We really appreciate being able to talk with Jim be it by phone or e mail as if we are old friends very relaxed,trusting folks,we felt very confident after our first conversation that it would be as Jim explained.For us as a family snowmobiling has been a passion and truly the accomadations we enjoyed only made a great thing better,especially the privacy and freedom to sit in the hot tub at 8 in the morning enjoying a cup of coffee or after a days ride to soak away the aches.Also the manager Dan was awesome,the kind of fellow that you could call a friend after minutes visiting,we will return,we can't wait thank you very much.

Great chalet in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We - 4 adults and 2 little ones - really enjoyed our stay at this chalet. It was very well equipped, for ex we cooked quite a bit and there was everything we needed and if you are a TV fan you'll find a TV not only in the living room but in most of the bedrooms too! It was spotless clean, very cosy, well maintained, has a nice hot tub outside and a large backyard to play in - w a basketball net, a firepit and a horseshoe game! We also found that Jim the owner was very responsive and kind over emails. Finally, we read before booking in another review that the housekeeper was living in the basement and this was not a problem at all for us. He is in fact very nice and relaxed! So all in all we'ld go back and highly recommend.

3rd year back and still loving this house

  • 5 of 5

3rd year in a row we have been for Thanksgiving and don't see us stopping the tradition anytime soon. The house is still incredibly well maintained and the grounds impeccably well looked after. Dan, the housekeeper, is super friendly and helpful when it comes to anything about the house or the area. Love how well stocked with kitchen appliances and cooking wear the house is. You have everything you could possible want with this house. Just wonderful!

Excellent retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this extremely lovely home just a few kilometers outside of Golden. It was a perfect place to relax and enjoy the comforts of home. We saw a herd of deer in the field across the street (15+), and one evening heading home, saw (from the car) two black bear cubs crossing the road about 2 kilometers from the house. Dan was great, and it was unfortunate that are schedules didn't overlap so that we could have gotten to know him better. Would definitely return.

Immaculately maintained, better than advertised!

We stayed here for a few days with family. There is a very large outdoor space and plenty of indoor space as well. The place is spotless and has everything we needed for a great stay. Well done!

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home. It was perfect. The scenery was breath taking.

The house was fully stocked with everything we needed. We loved using the hot tub and the fire pit at night.

We hope to come and visit again in the near future.

stop looking and book!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a week and quite simply, we have had a fantastic time. We rafted, hiked, climbed, sky-dived, cycled, build damns and bridges, played cards and laughed until we have cried! After all the things we did, it was fantastic to come "home" into the embrace of the Bear's Paws.

I appreciate that house is (I suspect partly at least) a business/ investment but it has never felt like that in our dealings with owners or indeed with the house. We have felt like friends staying in a friends house while they were away.

Owner's Response: Hi Charles We are thrilled you loved Beat Paw Lodge and made the most of the fantastic activities Golden has to offer. Now you have experienced the Summer you should try to make it back in the winter one day so you can experience an equally good time with the vast selection of winter activities. Best wishes Jim Hewlett
