Spectacular mountain beauty at Hawkes Hill Vacation Home in Golden BC

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Hawkes Hill is a peaceful country getaway 15 minutes south of Golden with spectacular views overlooking the Columbia River valley. Be wowed by our fully furnished, two bedroom self contained apartment with a million dollar view!

The suite is full of sunlight and looks out over the Columbia River valley and the Purcell Mountains to the west and the Rockies to the east. Views to the north overlook a wooded meadow perfect for cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter and easy walks or hiking during the rest of the year.

Hawkes Hill has two bedrooms and sleeps four comfortably. The master bedroom features a queen size bed. The second bedroom has two twins. (Please see fee note below.)

A large spacious living area off the bedrooms and bathroom makes up the rest of the suite and combines a kitchen and sitting area with a wood stove. The kitchen is fully equipped with stove, fridge, microwave, dishes and utensils. The hot tub with a view is available for guest use. And we have Wi-Fi internet and satellite TV in the suite too.

Maggie & Bill live in the main house adjacent to the suite and are accessible if the need arises. We love meeting guests and hearing about their lives and travels, but we also respect a mutual need for privacy. For your arrival we provide a loaf of Bill's home made bread and stock the kitchen with tea, coffee fixings to make you welcome.

We strive to provide a comfortable place for our guests to relax and enjoy their holiday, and we ask that guests are considerate and respectful of our home and beautiful environment. No smoking on the property, please. No pets. No parties.

Our guests tell us that we have the million dollar view. It certainly is a joy to have this panoramic view of the valley and mountains. Birds flock to our feeders and it is always a cool moment to look down into the valley and see the local herd of elk foraging for slough grass beneath the snow or watch the eagles and red tail hawks soaring on the summer thermals just above our heads.

Surrounded by five national parks and close to Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, we are situated in a breathtaking mountain wilderness only 3 hours from the Calgary International Airport.

As well as the adventure playground outside our door, Golden is well known for an active arts scene featuring two dozen concerts of music, theatre and dance annually. On the Valentine's Day weekend, the Snow King & Lady Spring come into town for our annual MasqueParade outdoor pageant in Spirit Square. Throughout the summer, there are free mid-week concerts featuring touring festivals artists in Golden's Spirit Square. Check out Kicking Horse Culture online for more info.

Price listed is for two people. For each additional person, add $20/night. Minimum two night stay.

PLEASE NOTE: our basic fee is calculated for two people sharing the same room. If two people wish to use two rooms for sleeping, please confirm with us before booking. Using both rooms increases our cleaning load and cost so we need to add a $25 cleaning fee to the basic fee when two people use both bedrooms. Thanks.

Perfect Anniversary Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Bill and Maggie's property is so cozy and homey. The view..... is absolutely incredible. The sound of the creek rushing on the side of the house is so relaxing. We loved taking a dip in the hot tub, and thoroughly enjoyed the sound of crackling wood from the fireplace. The space is an addition they built above the garage and is private and cozy. I loved their outdoor kitty Bella, she liked to greet us whenever we were outside, she is so friendly. We had everything we needed and wanted for our stay. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely review, Vaishali. Glad you had a great time staying here while you were attending your family wedding up at Kicking Horse. Snow in the winter is what everyone wants but it does mean to be extra careful on the roads for sure. :-) We can promise you lots of sunshine in the summer time! All the best to your family, Vaishali. Maggie & Bill

We stayed for 4 days and had a great time. It's a cute little place, the hot tub is awesome to relax in with beautiful views, and the hosts were more than accommodating. Would definitely stay there again.
