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.

Quiet, cozy, gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much, Maggie and Bill, for making our weekend getaway so spectacular! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and didn't want to leave! We loved the views from the deck and hot tub of the mountains and enjoyed these while relaxing after a long day of skiing at Kicking horse. The rental is well stocked, quiet and the bed very comfy. We really loved the wood stove too. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you!!

Great little spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 adults and 2 small dogs had a great time at Bill and Maggie’s! The view is amazing (especially from the hot tub) and the condo had everything we needed. Only issues to note are that the driveway was a bit treacherous with slushy conditions (snow tires without AWD couldn’t make it up) and there is no cell reception. Communication from hosts was fantastic! Thanks so much!

Great family place!

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Maggie are generous hosts and our family thoroughly enjoyed our time at their place. The beds were comfy, the linens were soft and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals. They let us borrow their snowshoes and we loved the hot tub! We’ll recommend this rental to all of our friends and hope to be back ourselves. Thank you for a beautiful week!

Amazing Views and Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

The views from this rental are absolutely amazing! We really enjoyed relaxing by the fire while looking out at the snow-covered mountains and forest. We brought our dogs and they were thrilled to be able to be off leash and explore the property. The home itself was very cute and had all the necessities. Maggie and Bill, the hosts, were very welcoming and accommodating. They even gave us a loaf of fresh bread, which was delicious! We would stay again.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place truly has an amazing view as advertised. It's the perfect size for 4 people. It's a little tricky to find so make sure you follow the directions. The fireplace was a nice touch and they have wood pre cut as well as kindling. The only complaint is that the Wi-Fi isn't great and there isn't any cell reception.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Friendly communication at reservation and leading up to our stay. Bill greeted us very warmly when we arrived. Clean comfortable living area and rooms. They even baked home made bread. Wonderful view of the mountains from the balcony and a hot tub to relax our muscles after a long day of hiking around Lake Louise. Couldn't have been any better.

Thank you
