We spent a whole week in the Garden Chalet, part of the Cedar Chalets complex. This delightful cluster of accommodation is a few kilometers south of Golden, up a hillside overlooking the Columbia Valley. I must admit the road leading up to the chalet was a little untidy, with shacks and abandoned cars along the way, but don’t let this put you off.
The Garden Chalet was perfect for our family of four, with two twin beds upstairs and a master bedroom downstairs (but only one bathroom). The lounge/dining room area was large, with a wood-burning stove in the corner, a large TV with DVD’s, and good WiFi. At the back overlooking the valley is a large deck with a hot tub, grill and tables and chairs.
Dana welcomed us as soon as we arrived and showed us around, making sure we knew how everything worked in the chalet. By booking for 7 nights we got one night free, so this well-appointed cabin turned out to be less expensive than our much smaller one in Jasper.
I would definitely recommend this place if you want a comfortable cabin not far from Golden and the national parks.
We Stayed in the Garden Chalet – Beautiful mountain view from the deck, the hot tub & BBQ on deck are just a small bonus compared to the rest of the chalet the woodstove was great! & the loft king bedroom was perfect, the chalet is perfectly situated so you feel very private, the entire property was immaculate and picturesque, extremely friendly staff and very accommodating, there is hiking trails right off the property which was great! and the chalet was equipped with everything you could possibly need when your away from home, I didn’t want to leave! I have already started booking our anniversary trip here at this magical hidden gem Will be back – LOVE IT!!
This place is paradise!!!!! We stayed in Adventure Chalet. All was perfect! Chalet is perfectly equipted, hot tube amazing, you have a lot of privacy. We came from Poland so long way but we do hope to come back to this place again!!! Owner is so nice and helpfull! Our son loved this place.
We stayed in the Dragonfly chalet. The deck and views, with the private hot tub, were outstanding. The chalet is huge, well appointed, and I wish we could have stayed longer. I have recommended to friends who love hiking that this would be an ideal spot.
