“A Home away from the Hill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2013 for a stay in February 2012

If you don't feel the need to be right on the ski hill this is an excellent alternative. We travelled with our two teenage sons and a friend for each. The cabin is spacious up to date and well equipped. The hot tub provides that welcome respite at the end of a long day on Kickinghorse Mountain. The drive to the hill is only 15-20 minutes and well worth it for those who like to cater for themselves.

“It was a shame we couldn[--]t stay longer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The manager of the property was very helpful and down to earth. After taking a quick tour of the property we'd regretted the fact that we did not book a longer stay. We're seriously considering returning to this place. The Cabin overlooks the scenic Kicking Horse Valley, provides all of the amenities of home, a fire pit (wood and axe), hot tub and hammock. If you arrive in August the cabin is surrounded with carmine jewel cherries and saskatoon berry bushes which we were able to pick fruit from to enjoy with breakfast. If you are traveling with a family there is a small hand crafted play house in the back yard for kids to enjoy. The only two things that would have made this place even better would be an allowance for pets (we were not traveling with our dog, but would be in the future) and a stereo equipped with an auxillary-in jack or ipod dock so we could play our own tunes. We highly recommend Smiley Wolf.

“Smiley Wolf - "a gem in the woods"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

My husband had booked Smiley for our family to stay at. Not until we actually pulled up to the front did we have any idea what kind of wonderful get away we were going to. Breathtaking!!! Smiley Wolf was the PERFECT place for relaxation. It was fully equipted and we were impressed by the cleanliness and the warmth of it all. Between having a fire and roasting marshmellows at night, BBQing on the deck, relaxing in the hammock or going into the hot tub, Smiley Wolf is a wonderful place to go and I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. I keep telling my husband that I want to go back.

“Quality cabin in beautiful and quiet surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2012 for a stay in November 2011

We stayed at Smiley Wolf for a relaxing weekend in November. The cabin is top quality: the kitchen is rather well equipped, the beds are perfect and with two bathrooms and a hot tub there's plenty of opportunity for a soak. The large plot provides privacy yet it's not remote. Golden is just a five minute drive and has everything you'll need, while there's virtually unlimited opportunity to enjoy the outdours in the immediate surroundings.

“Great place to warm up after a day in the outdoors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

The Smiley Wolf was a great place to return to after a day spent canoeing and fishing at local lakes. The chill of the fall day was easily replaced by the warmth of the hot tub and wood stove. There was lots of room for my young sons and the three adults in our party to relax in comfort. Property manager is very helpful and everything is as advertised!

“Super cozy and relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2011 for a stay in January 2011

We've stayed at Smiley Wolf twice now in the winter and have thoroughly enjoyed both of our visits. This cabin is nestled in the trees on Mount Seven, just outside of Golden. A round trip from the house to the grocery store in Golden and back again takes less than half an hour (and that includes time in the grocery store!). It is only about 30 min from door to lift at Kicking Horse Mountain or the Dawn Mountain ski trails and very close to several local hiking and biking trails. But beyond the benefits of the location, there is something just special about this place. It is impossible to feel anything but relaxed when you walk in the door. The log walls, wood-burning stove, hot tub, open kitchen all invite you in and say "sit down and enjoy!" The bedrooms are very well appointed with log furniture and very comfortable beds, and the main floor is stocked with everything you need for a wonderful break from the real world. Oh, and I almost forgot.... just outside the cabin your little ones will find a pint-sized play house that promises to provide hours of entertainment (at least it did for my kids!). And if you are travelling with kids, there is a lovely old claw-footed tub in the upstairs bathroom....
