“A Home away from the Hill”
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”
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"”
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”
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.
