About the property

Situated in the stunning Blaeberry Valley, 15 minutes drive from Golden, our Cordwood Chalet is the perfect getaway to peacefulness and tranquility in the heart of nature. Newly built and comfy, its location offers a wide range of outdoor activities. My partner and I have taken 6 years to build this little paradise. We have design and build the place entirely ourselves. We have tried to use as much ecological products as we could and we are proud to offer our guests a stunning surrounding environment.

It has its own driveway and is completely self-sufficient. Guests are greeting upon arrival and we are available for them at anytime for questions or comments. English ,French and Spanish is spoken

Lovely quiet cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful secluded cottage. Spotlessly clean and Priscilla was a lovely host. We were there for 4 days for our anniversary and it was perfect. Location between Yoho and Galcier was ideal for our walking trips. Loved it.

Great location, nice and quiet with seclusion

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay here. The chalet is very comfortable and the property is beautiful. Sitting on the deck each evening with wine and grilled dinner was back-dropped by woods and mountains.

Anyone that desires a quiet getaway not too far from Golden, as well as Glacier, Yoho, and Banff National Parks should look into this place.

We have nothing negative to say about the accommodations or the owners. Prescilla and Jonathon are gracious hosts that leave you to yourself, but will help you as needed.

The pictures don't do the chalet justice. It is such a comfortable, open and beautiful space with products that are clean for the environment. Priscilla was attentive and provided great suggestions for hikes. We only wish we had stayed longer.

Peaceful woodsy retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is a completely lovely home in the middle of the woods, a perfect getaway. The house itself is clean, new, and beautiful. It has all necessary amenities. The bathtub overlooking the mountain in the back of the home is just dreamy!!

Priscilla was so kind and an excellent communicator. She is nearby and very helpful. We did do a fair bit of driving back into the parks to see some of the well known sites, but the area just around the chalet is stunning in its own right and I wish we'd had more time to relax/explore there. Highly recommend this home!

A quiet remote retreat that brings all the elements of warmth, convenience and comfort to a quiet, secluded, dark-night, tranquil experience. Simply perfect in so many ways! Will be looking for the next opportunity to do this all over again.
