Greg & I live in small town Okotoks just outside of Calgary, Alberta.

We fell in love with Invermere back in 1989 after not having been this way since childhood! After going back many times, we finally decided to buy a brand new townhouse in 2006! Greg is an avid golfer, our son loves to snowboard and our daughter & myself just love to relax! It's our home away from home just 3 hours away that can't be beat for a long weekend escape!

Gina McLean purchased this townhome in 2006

Our home is located right in Invermere on a quiet residential street! Many of the neighbours are permanent residents of 'Invy' which we love! It's a short walk to Sobeys, the drug store and 7th Avenue which is 'main' street! If you bring just one vehicle there's absolutely no worries to get around walking everywhere! It's perfect! : )

We looked at a few townhouses in town and then saw what is now 'McLean's Chil'laxin Shack'! I fell in love with the big front porch which is perfect for afternoon sun! We look at the Purcell Mtns. from there and the Rockies from the back deck!

The street is quiet, the view is awesome, we can walk everywhere, there's way too many things to do if you want to and we just absolutely love hanging out in our beautiful home! It's fantastic!

GIRLS WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
What a great place! 9 of us girls booked a weekend here, we had an awesome time! Everyone loved the house, there was more than enough room for all of us. Having 3 baths/showers made it super easy for getting ready. The lake was only a 5 minute drive and we spent lots of time down there kayaking, paddle boarding and just hanging out. We all loved the town of Invermere itself and hope to come again soon. Thank you so much Gina for having us in your cozy little place!

VERY CLEAN, SPACIOUS, AND CUTE HOME

  • 4 of 5
The town of Invermere is amazing, the surroundings are spectacular, and this home is very welcoming. The home had more than enough personal space for the 2 adults and 2 children (one of whom is a very active toddler) during our stay. The only reason we even went into the nicely developed basement was to do laundry. It's a very short walk (maybe 2 blocks) to the huge nearby park and playground as well as to a paved walking/biking path with spectacular scenery. We walked to the nearby Sobeys and then in the opposite direction to the quaint downtown - this home is a convenient location for all of that.

The only drawback is the lack of backyard. The home backs onto a private common area greenspace, but it wasn't available to us. That concept was rather difficult for the kids to understand - 'you can stand near this great space, but don't go on it.'

Owner's Response: Hi Tonia!
I'm glad you had a great time enjoying the town of Invermere! It really is the best!
I heard your little ones did get to play out back a little bit! The neighbours are usually quite good about it ... especially when there's a busy toddler! : )
I hope you noticed the "non-common space" highlighted in our Rental Rules but still chose to come stay with us!
Thanks for the great review and we hope to see you back soon!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
This is my second stay - great experience both times. House is clean, comfortable, organized and well stocked with the everyday items. Everything you need for indoor or outdoor! 2 bedrooms with ensuites was a definitely a plus. Owner easy to get in touch with and responded very quickly for booking or general questions. Located with in walking distance of the town center, great for shopping and exploring. Close to 2 beaches and easy access for golf and skiing. Found deer grazing in front a couple of times - nice little treat for a city slicker!
We'd definitely stay again. Thanks for a great visit!

RELAXING BUT EXCITING STAY

  • 5 of 5
Conveniently located in the city center, but quiet enough to enjoy the trip away from the big city. Good equipment with all in a very good condition. Beautiful pool table in the basement is great for additional excitment. Feel obligated to come back again.

AN AWESOME CONDO! RENT IT, NO DISAPPOINTMENTS

  • 5 of 5
This condo was magnificent! I stayed for three nights with my three kids. Kids channels on the cable TV kept them busy while I made dinner, and after my little ones were in bed my son and I played pool in the basement, and then a movie together. Close to the beach, shopping, and grocery store. The turn off to Panorama is literally minutes from the condo. The pictures on the ad do not do this condo justice! Three beautifully developed levels with a bathroom on each level, green space in the back for the kids to run around in, and front pad where my little ones rode their bikes. Amenities aplenty, everything you need for a short or long stay is at your fingertips. Well stocked kitchen with all the tools to make a fabulous gourmet dinner. Hard wood floors on the main level, tile at the front entrance, just spectacular. HUGE bedrooms, the master is super and ensuite is gorgeous. The second bedroom upstairs with three beds! 4 people can stay there comfortably. Two or more could retreat to the basement. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, a real sweetheart. And, my damage deposit was returned promptly. I will definitely be renting this condo again from Gina. The only thing that was missing...internet connection. Not a big deal. The other pluses of this condo will make you forget internet! Super clean and well kept.

Finding enough time to pack in all the adventures offered around Invermere is a challenge in itself.

Take in a round of golf, or shopping, followed by a relaxing dip in the hot springs. Or saddle up for a horseback ride, hike in the parks, tackle the whitewater on a rafting trip and fish in the Windermere Valley's well-stocked lakes.

Come winter, skiers, heli skiers, snowmobilers and snowshoers take to the slopes.

Land Activities

Play golf at any one of a long list of 18-hole and 9-hole courses in the Windermere Valley, and forget about keeping your head down – there is great scenery to see.

From fine art at the Artym or Effusion galleries to scrumptious treats at Gerry's Gelati, the economic hub of the Windermere Valley has some great shopping. Be sure to include a side trip to Bavin Glassworks, just off Highway 93/95, where you can watch a glassblower at work, and make a few little glass trinkets yourself.

Visit the farmers market downtown on Saturday mornings, from June through September.

Go horseback riding with one of the operators at Panorama Mountain Village Resort, Fairmont Hot Springs or in the Radium Hot Springs area. Other experienced outfitters offer multi-day expeditions into the Purcell Mountain Range.

Water Activities

Take to the water with an exciting river rafting trip on the Kootenay River, Columbia River or Toby Creek. For a less adrenaline-pumping, but completely fascinating experience, take a tour of the Columbia River Wetlands with a naturalist as your guide. The wildlife is diverse and abundant.

Rent a kayak or canoe and spend a few hours paddling on Windermere Lake, or exploring the river between Invermere and Radium Hot Springs. Powerboats are also rentable on the lake from Pete's Marina.

A number of lakes in the area are regularly stocked with fry from a nearby hatchery. Try your hand at fishing on Whiteswan, Alces, Whitetail or Windermere Lakes.

Any time of year is a great time to visit one of the hot springs in and around the valley.

Summer Activities

The extremely warm Windermere Lake or somewhat cooler Columbia Lake boast some of the best beaches and swimming in the Kootenay Rockies, but it doesn't stop there. There's also windsurfing, powerboating, kayaking and canoeing.

Take a flight-seeing tour over the Rockies and the Purcells with Babin Air, based at Invermere's small airport, or take to the air with Canadian Mountain Holidays or RK Heliski for a spectacular heli hiking experience.

Explore the mountains around Panorama on an ATV tour with Toby Creek Adventures Ltd, which offers a range of programs from 90 minute quickies to overnight camping trips.

Head out of town to explore the mountain parks. Go hiking or sightseeing in Kootenay National Park, and the equally spectacular Provincial Parks that surround the valley. Great local hikes include Jumbo Pass, Mount Swansea and Earl Grey Pass.

Winter Activities

In winter, go skiing or snowboarding at Panorama Mountain Resort or Fairmont Hot Springs. Panorama also offers heli skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and real Canadian dogsledding.

Go cross-country skiing at Panorama, Fairmont or at the Nipika Mountain Resort, located in the Rocky Mountains, 30 minutes east of Radium Hot Springs.
