Charming 200sq/f tiny house on an acre and a half in Spillimacheen. The home is powered from the solar panels on the roof and the water is from a well. The water from the tap is good for washing but not for drinking and cooking. The water in the large blue jugs is safe for drinking and cooking. Please note the only toilet is the outhouse, there is a small shower inside.
“There were no unpleasant surprises, the posting is accurate and if using and outhouse and living in a small area are turn offs then this place is not for you. That being said, we absolutely loved it. It was rustic but sparking clean, the area peaceful, there are many beautiful hiking opportunities and David is a welcoming host who is happy to answer questions about the tiny and give suggestions on hiking or other adventures in the area. There were neat little touches, such as a small dvd player that was great for late movie nights in bed before heading back outside for breathtaking stargazing. All in all a wonderful experience!”
We are in a private park like location with fabulous views of the Purcells and Columbia River surrounded by 5 National Parks. Five min. drive to Golden and 20 min. to KHR. A hop, skip and a jump from the Nicholson and Mount 7 bike trails, paragliding landing area and Rock-a-bout climbing cliffs. Walk down to the river and float to Golden on your paddle board, kayak or canoe. Enjoy an outside fire in the evening with great views or snuggle up to the fireplace indoors after skiing.
“Kellie and Roger are super hosts, special people and great to know them. The unit is a private separate apt with private access. I stayed a month. It is furnished excellently for long or short term stay. Very comfortable. It has everything you need and Roger and Kellie are very attentive to help with whatever else you might want.”

“Great quiet scenic abode; very close to Golden Core! A home away from home, this location offered all the touches one needs including kitchen amenities and BBQ to cook for yourself, coffee maker, stunning views from both windows and mountain vistas around the property! Gardens, patio, privacy and parking a plus. Less than 5 min drive to downtown core for walking trails, biking, restaurants and stores. A close drive to the Golden Golf Course and Kicking Horse in addition to the National Parks. We will return again! Thank you for the hospitality”
