For a B&B the rooms are not quite as homey as you might expect. Decor is rustic but the en-suite bathrooms are right out of a motel. Breakfast was good but lacking on variation. Location is very pretty with a view of the mountains and the town of Golden. It's also far enough from the highway to be reasonably quiet....

A lucky find for my husband and me on a rainy September afternoon in Golden. We had driven down the ice fields highway in increasingly wet and chilly conditions, then turned west at Lake Louise to take a chance that we would find accomodation in the beautiful mountain town of Golden, BC. We were lucky. By chance our first stop...

We loved staying at this bed and breakfast! It was charming through and through. It is a large log cabin surrounded by beautiful gardens and conveniently located along the TransCanadian Highway 1. Our room was just right, cozy and with a very comfortable bed (Room 9). The woman who greeted us was friendly and helpful (sorry, I didn't get her...

This place was a pleasant surprise. Nestled in the midst of a nice garden yet close to the TransCanada highway is this large log building. The interior is decorated with antiques, collectibles, quilts, etc - don't forget the full size stuffed bear in the dining room! The rooms were small but adequate with very comfy bedding. There's a large living...

The 'wet and wild' rafting sign guided us to McLaren lodge, where we had a quaint log cabin-room in the mountains! It is conveniently located close to the turn off to Golden. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast plentiful and delicious. We especially liked the egg casserole called fritata! There are no TV's in the rooms, but a common...

I have stayed here with my wife for 2 nights. Pro: very clean linen sheets and room; easy to find the hotel by any GPS; very quiet by night; beautiful landscape around the cabin; spacious parking lot. Con: a dictatorial rule that say the entrance door will be locked up at 11:00 pm with no exception, so we struggled to...
