Best Cabins in Golden, BC


Getaway Cabin

We spent a week here and loved it!
  • Beds: 5
  • Guests: 8
  • Superhost: Yes
  • Price: $99 CAD/night

You’d be hard pressed to find a cozier cabin in Golden. This timber-framed log cabin is your ticket to a true Rockies experience. The interior has two floors – the upstairs loft has a queen bed and two twins, while the downstairs has a second queen bedroom and a living room with a comfortable pull-out. Pets are welcome for an additional fee.

The cabin is located just off the river and backed by beautiful forest. It’s about a 30 minute drive from Downtown Golden so it’s for those who don’t mind being away from town and would rather find themselves surrounded by wilderness. The cabin is perfect for staying in – pour a drink while you curl up by the indoor fireplace or the outside fire pit.

There’s a full kitchen for all your meals. It’s best to do all your grocery shopping at the IGA in Golden as that is the closest grocery store to the cabin.

This cabin is a cabin community, so look around at the different cabin options and choose which one is right for you.
