Should I rent a car?
We do recommend renting a car as there is so much to explore in and around Golden; we are also located a short 5 minute drive from Golden. There are shuttle options to and from Golden and Calgary if you prefer not to drive. There are also a limited number of taxis you can take between Golden and Cedar House.
What is the closest international airport?
The Calgary Airport (YYC) is located 3 hours east in Alberta.
What items will I find in my chalet?
Each chalet includes towels, linens, robes, washer & dryer with soap (Adventure Chalet laundry is located in the Pump House), private deck with BBQ and hot tub, full kitchen with cooking utensils, pots & pans and dishes, board games, playing cards, DVD player and DVDs, speaker with iPod dock, shampoo, body wash, hand soap, tissue, blow dryer, make up remover wipes
What items do I need to bring?
Clothes, food, flip flops for the hot tub, camera
We had a fabulous stay. Loved all the attention to details. Enjoyed this more than when we stayed at the banff springs.
This was our third visit to this amazing mountain escape. We stayed twice in the Sun Suite, and this visit, we stayed at the Dragonfly cabin. Both were beautiful. They have everything you could possibly need…even had a towel labelled “dog” with milk bone for our pooch on it … Came in handy as was a rainy day… They have a complete binder with everything you need to know inside and have taken the time to label light switches and put helpful notes on stove and AC to help you figure stuff out. This was our first time “treating” ourselves to the restaurant, but will not be our last. The chef is spectacular and was very considerate of my daughter’s request for gluten-free. When we booked our reservation we were asked if we had any special dietary needs…nice! When we arrived for dinner, they had already ensured she had gluten-free bread while my mom and I snacked on the home-made molasses bread which was so yummy… The food was unbelievable!! The Chef makes sure that each dish has ingredients that enhance the flavor of the main meal component. We had duck, steak and roast chicken, and they were simply the best we have ever had. Our waitress was friendly, and accommodating. PLEASE treat yourself to this dining experience… You will NOT regret it!! We came back to our cabin, and thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub overlooking the mountains. The owners take pride in their cabins and it shows. Thank you Cedar House…we will always make you part of our family vacation because we love everything about this awesome mountain resort!!!
This was the perfect place to wind down our fantastic Honeymoon in the Rockies! The chalet was perfectly furnished with everything we could need…The food at the restaurant was so great we ate there both nights. The passion that they have for the food and wonderful service is something that is so rare to find! We were made to feel like we were old friends coming to dinner and the food was out of this world…With a heavy heart and some reluctance we will be leaving in the morning, but in our minds we are already making plans to come back someday.
Darrin obviously believes in doing things ‘right.’ We were impressed with the high quality finishing inside-so spacious with both a modern and a country feel…Everything a person would need is supplied. The spectacular views, fresh air and lush greenery are just a bonus…Thanks so much for the awesome place to stay. It’s so nice to see something built with such pride and skill.
