But don’t just come here in the winter, or solely for the scenery. Golden has come a long way since Swiss mountaineers arrived in 1899. There is such a wide variety of things to do and see in Golden, that you might want to opt for a longer stay. Indulge in local cuisine, go cycling, hiking, or rafting. You can even see buffalos and grizzly bears up close. While you plan your itinerary, check out the alternative to hotels or bed and breakfast accommodations - these are the great and private Vrbo vacation rentals in Golden, British Columbia.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on July 25, 2024.

1. Modern house with artisan custom-made furniture (from USD 261)

Enjoy panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains and Purcell from the patio, or windows of this modern property with three bedrooms. There is in-floor heating, a fireplace, and a great kitchen. It is not often that you see blender, stove, oven, and grill, as well. Later, enjoy a meal or a glass of wine inside, or on a deck with outdoor furniture. In winter months, skiing is the most popular option. In summers, you can spend some time in the communal pool. The downtown area of Golden is easily reachable, as well - just a two-minute drive away. You can also take a five-minute stroll along the Rotary walking trail. There is a pub halfway in, how about that.
