Darrin & Tracy

Darrin DeRosa , your host at The Cedar House Chalets, was captured over 20 years ago by the majestic mountains of British Columbia. His strong passion for adventure matched with his natural hospitality is the foundation of this unique resort. Darrin has had a `hands on` approach from the beginning, designing, building and furnishing all of the gorgeous chalets personally. When the opportunity for some personal time presents itsself Darrin and his partner Tracy indulge in mountain culture and are usually found biking in summer and skiing in winter.  With plenty  of experience as a guide in the area Darrin is a wealth of knowledge to guests looking to explore the land.


Dayna is the newest member of the Cedar House team. Originally from Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, she has a rich background in hospitality and tourism. Although Dayna has not been a Golden resident for long her desire for adventure has already led her to many remote places and exciting experiences. If you require any advice or guidance about the ‘must do`s’ during your stay in Golden Dayna is always happy to help you plan your day trips.



Amy is the lead chalet attendant and the individual behind the immaculately kept chalets at  The Cedar House. Her high standards and attention to detail ensure that each and every chalet is flawless for all guests. Amy has lived in Golden all her life and knows every hidden gem in the Kootnays.  If you see Amy around the property be sure to give her a wave of appreciation for her commitment to clean!
