We travelled through Golden on our way from and to the Calgary airport. On our way from Calgary we stayed at one of the main motels that are right along Highway 1, and it was your standard motel, comfortable but as it turned out more expensive than staying at Canyon Ridge.
On our way back to Calgary we booked Room 2 at the Canyon Ridge Lodge, and it was a wonderful surprise! The B&B is immediately accessible and very easy to find from Highway 1. The B&B already looked good on the internet when booking, but when we arrived there we were even more impressed by the beauty of the place. The owners Paul and Kat did a fantastic job designing the house, all beautiful wood beams and lovely natural rock flooring and bathrooms in slate, which is Paul's speciality, and Kat decorated the rooms with such taste, beautiful result!
We were warmly welcomed by Kat, who did an excellent job of showing us the facilities and explaining the local events going on in Golden, recommending several restaurants.
The room was very pretty, the bed was heavenly and as mentioned above, the bathroom was incredible. They've thought out very well all the details in adding comfort to the rooms - from the flat screen TV to an iPod-docking alarm clock - with the added bonus of a hottub right outside the room! There's 4 rooms in all, three of which open onto a lounge area, with plush sofas and tea, coffee and fruits available at all times.
After a lovely sleep, we came up to their beautiful dining room for breakfast with the other guests, and found a well-stocked selection of breakfast foods and great poached eggs and toast!
This is my first review on trip advisor, and it's a fairly easy one, as this B&B was delightful to stay at. I highly recommend it, and will definitely go back to it the next time we're going through Golden!
