About Krys Sikora and Les Margetak

We are semi retired and live full time in a adjacent home on our 125 acres hobby farm. We raise organic cattle and grow hay. We also own and run two small cabins called Rocky Mountain Cabins, and are part owners of a ski business. We are also the proud parents of 4 and are blessed with 2 grand babies!

Krys Sikora and Les Margetak purchased this house in 2000

Why Krys Sikora and Les Margetak chose Golden

This log home was professionally designed and built in 2009 for Krys' dad. He has recently moved to a senior home and we are now renting it as a vacation rental.

What makes this house unique

The Blaeberry Valley is truly amazing! You would never know that this piece of heaven exists just a few kilometres from the Trans Canada Highway. It is quiet and beautiful. Although we are quite biased; we think it is one of the most beautiful places in our neck of the woods!

Top Notch

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and comfortable. Tranquil surroundings. Sometimes you just need to turn off everything and listen to nature. There are some built in bonuses you will just have to find out for yourself.

Beautiful mountain home!

  • 5 of 5

The home is very clean, very well appointed and very cozy! The views of the valley and mountains are incredible. We really enjoyed the new hot tub outside. The kids had a blast playing in the open fields out front. The herd of elk that visited us right out front was a treat as well! This was our second time staying here and wont be our last....Thank you Les and Krys for making our stay great again this time!

Beautiful log home

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful log home with lots of privacy and beautiful views. We were here for 5 nights and found the house to be in a great location for seeing the Canadian Rockies. Les was very nice and easy to work with. There is a large meadow in the front of the house and every morning we work up to see a herd of Elk so we managed to get some closeup pictures. This house is really a 5 star house except for one issue. There was a fly infestation. Les told us he ordered some fly traps but they didn’t arrive before our stay. Although the flies mostly stayed around the windows, we still had to content with them. The fly swatter got a workout.

Owner's Response: Hi Joyce: Thanks for your review. The new fly traps arrived just days after you checked out and are now installed. As we discussed we prefer to use non pesticide methods and the organic traps, while just as effective, are more difficult to get. House flies can be a problem in newer log homes, usually in the early fall. The situation is now corrected and hope it didn't cause you too much inconvenience. Regards Les and Krys

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house is surrounded by mountains. We brought our 3 teenagers with us and they loved it too. Every morning we woke up to a field of deer grazing in the front yard. It was a 10-minute walk to the Blaeberry River. We were close to Yoho National Park, Glacier National Park, Wapta Falls and the Columbia River. The house is gorgeous and had everything we could think of. The kids used the hot tub every day. We are definitely coming back here and we are absolutely staying here again!!
