This cabin rental in the Rockies is the perfect option for a winter getaway

It’s not easy (or quick) to get to the Rockies from Vancouver. So if we go there, we want to make sure we’re in store for something really special. Well, we absolutely have found a wonderful cabin near Golden, in the heart of one of the best areas in the country for skiing and other winter sports. Let’s look at it!

Nicknamed the “Aurora House,” this modern ski lodge is located on one of the most stunning (and challenging) ski resorts in the country, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. With 60% of trails rated as ‘Advanced’ or ‘Expert’, we wouldn’t recommend it for people who just want to dip their toes on a weekend. But, if you’ve walked around the block a few times, you’ll be in heaven.

Well, we’re going to make a slight correction. Because even if you hang around town, try snowshoes and relax in the chalet, you will still enjoy every second of it. With 4,000 square feet of living space spread over three floors, the home offers a wonderful blend of functionality and luxury.

On the one hand, the 5 bedrooms (which can accommodate up to 13 adults) and the 3.5 bedrooms make it possible not to trip over each other while getting ready each morning. And once back from a day on the slopes? Toss your gear next to space heaters in the garage or hallway so it’s ready to go the next morning.

It’s not all you can expect for your après ski activities. Some bonus amenities include a media room, chef’s kitchen, bar, and Sonos sound system. And of course, what luxury chalet would be complete without a hot tub to relax your muscles? This one can accommodate up to 6 people, making it the ideal place to consume après-ski drinks.

The only problem here is the demand for this beautiful place! According to Airbnb, the Aurora House cabin in Golden has been more or less booked for the rest of the winter. We’re not too bothered, even if we can’t make it this season, we’ll keep that in mind for the next one!
