Windermere House Rental Photos and Description
House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)
Grandma Stella had a dream. She and her children and grandchildren helped design and build a holiday house- a magical place where 3 or 4 families could come together and have fun, and also have private space for renewal and relaxation. Its' unique design makes it cozy enough for 4 and spacious enough for 14. This lakehouse is Stella's Dream. We hope our magical place will become your magical place.
The main floor has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed. The lower walkout level has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, one of the bedrooms has its own sitting area - great for the grandparents or families wanting to keep younger children close overnight. Tuck away the kids or other guests in the loft level bedroom with a bunk bed (double lower and single upper) as well as a twin bed. A pull out couch in the open adjacent loft games area sleeps 2 more.
Three bathrooms, two with showers, one with soaker tub ensure the bathroom lineups stay short even with a full house! Yep, we are on a septic system. Take care!
Don't miss any of the action in the kitchen. This house is designed around a spacious kitchen with counter seating for 6 and additional dining table seating for 6. The deck and barbecue are steps away.
The walkout lower level covered patio is not only a 60 second slow stroll to the beach but upon return has great space outside to drip dry all the wet suits, towels, life jackets and other soggy beachwear and toys...another hassle free design. Washer and dryer are just upgraded.
Meet your new neighbors at the beach -- boaters, water skiers, wake boarders and youngsters trying to catch the fish that got away. Catch a float or swim in the safe swimming area. Our neighbours might take you kayaking to the water lilies at the south end of the lake.
Pick raspberries, pears, apples in the grassy back yard by day; watch the stars around the firepit at night. Marvel at the beautiful lake view and sunsets gently swinging in the hanging chairs on the wrap around partly covered deck.
A well stocked small grocery store is a few blocks away. They will reserve you a paper if you must stay in touch. A longer walk or a five minute drive gets you to a fresh produce market if going into Inveremere to shop for groceries feels too much like home.
All ages and abilities can be accommodated at the many golf courses. Take a hike to see the hoodoos, or see them from the air by the local flying company. Explore the vibrant arts community, Saturday market, shopping and wine and dining in Inveremere, Radium and Fairmont.
Start planning your fall and winter activities now! Remember this is a great place to watch salmon swimming upstream to spawn in the early fall.
Panorama Ski Resort is a 45 minute drive away. Ski or board some of the longest runs in Canada. Remember the Bugaboo Heli skiing starts from here. You'll want to come back in every season!

About The Owner
Bob and I own this property. We enjoy bringing out friends and family year round. This unique home was designed and built in part by my mother, my husband and children, my brothers and family. What a project! Mother Stella, affectionately known as Stelli, wanted to create a vacation home large enough to accommodate families and friends, cozy enough to share laughs, keep the kitchen and the deck the focal point of the house, and have space for reflection and relaxation. The apple tree was to be saved. The well tended raspberries were to be saved. The kids painted. The kids played. A few times we visited the hospital for stitches. The kids found the candy store and ice cream store and took the dogs into the water. We have watched our children and cousins grow - tykes with hammers, dog paddlers in the lake, visitors to the fort in the forest, growing into water sport enthusiasts, skilled swimmers and boat drivers, watching fireworks from the boats on Canada Day. Now all of us are adults. Of course the youngest golf's the best! We all love this house in different ways. The magic and memories live on. We hope you too can enjoy this wonderful house built for families to share good times together.
The Owner purchased this house in 1993
