Goldenwood was a well appointed three bedroom/four bathroom townhouse with lovely aboriginal art and sculptures, spacious rooms and completely equipped, modern kitchen with high-end appliances like Bosch dishwasher, Bosch oven and range, Sub-zero fridge. We cooked every night except went out the last night. The house had an expansive view across the golf course and adjacent lake. In addition to downhill skiing at Whistler, just ten minutes drive away, we also sent cross-country skiing at the Whistler Village center's trails, and on another day drove 20 minutes to the Olympic course. The staff at each place set us up with equipment and some basic instruction, and off we went! The local anthropology museum was an informative visit, celebrating the culture of the two indigenous tribes fro this area. On our last day, before boarding our flight home, we checked out the much larger anthropology museum at University of British Columbia in Vancouver (recommended by the property manager). Both museums were really helpful in rounding out our visit. We highly recommend Goldenwood, and hope to be able to return.”
