About Gina McLean

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

Why Gina McLean chose Inveremere

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! : )

What makes this townhome unique

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!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
This townhouse was perfect for our stay for the long weekend. We had 10 people and it accommodated wonderfully to all of us. The house looks even nicer in real life than it does in the pictures and is in a great location. We were able to walk downtown in less than 10 mins. We would all definitely come back to stay here again. Thanks again Gina, we had a great time!

We had a very pleasant stay in Invermere. The house is very comfy and there is lot of room. It's super cosy. 2 blocks from the supermarket, and 10 min from the center as well as the 2 public swimming areas. Perfect location!
We wished we had stayed 3 nights instead of 2.

A True Vacation - Life Slowed Down to Valley Time

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at this townhome! With two small children, it is rare to have an actual break. In Invermere, we found it. We slowed our life down to "Valley Time" and enjoyed the peacefulness of this property. Mornings were spent with a visit to the bakery, a trip to the beach and the splash park, to the hot springs and to Panorama. Afternoons were spent riding bikes to the playground down the street. The townhouse was just perfect. So much space, a basement that kept us cool in the summer heat, an awesome BBQ, and a front porch that was so quiet, we felt as though we had gone back in time. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!

First Trip to the Invermere area and the Columbia Valley

  • 5 of 5
We took a family time out after or Son's wedding in Edmonton. A great place to visit. Mountain ranges surrounded the entire community with mountain vistas out every window. The property was set in a quiet residential neighbourhood with easy access to the main roads and walkable to the very nice and well maintained downtown core. Lots of shops, restaurants and art galleries to keep you interested. Close to golf, fishing, water activities and mountain hiking terrain. Paragliding and hang gliding activities are on the edge of town. About 3-1/2 comfortable hours drive from the Calgary airport through the Kootenay National Park. Overall a great experience! While not necessary a vehicle is the best way to explore the area. We would rent the property again.

Great comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5
This was a great vacation home! Stayed here for only two nights and we wished we had stayed longer! Everything in the house is immaculately clean and looks like new. The living room and kitchen were large and spacious, with all the necessary pots and pans to cook. There is a porch out front with seating and a barbecue which was great to take in the evening setting sun. The rooms were quite large, with two twins and a double in one room and a queen in the other. Both rooms had attached bathrooms that were very clean. I've stayed in high end hotels that aren't as clean!

Overall a great stay! Note, however, that we were 8 people so two of us had to sleep on air mattresses in the basement (there are several air mattresses and the basement is quite comfortably furnished). So if you have more than 6 people keep in mind that two may not get the comfort of a proper bed.
Would definitely recommend staying here and I myself will go back again!

Owner's Response: Hey Abhinav!
Thanks so much for the great review and for pointing out the sleeping arrangements! We do say in our write up that air mattresses have to be used for larger groups! (Pull-out beds are never comfortable it seems!)
We do pride ourselves on having a beautiful townhouse and always expect our cleaners to do a great job for the next guests!
Please do look us up again if you head this way!
Thanks for being great guests! : )

Wonderful stay in Invermere

  • 5 of 5
We saw this cute townhouse on the web and phoned Gina to ask about it. She was great, gave us the details of the place. We booked for the long August weekend. I was a bit worried as one never knows what they will arrive to. We picked up the key from Jill and she gave us a tour of the unit. She was friendly and answered our questions. From the minute we opened the door we were so impressed. The unit is immaculately clean, nicely furnished and feels like home. All the utensils, equipment you need to be comfortable are there. We were a party of 5-a baby, their parents, and us, the grandparents.
The unit is situated in a great location-a short walk to the grocery store and the main town area. Easy access to the lake. We just loved the time we spent there.

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.
