Enjoy your morning coffee on the covered porch while watching the sun rise over the Rockie mountains. This home is situated in the beautiful Columbia Valley of British Columbia. It is located across the street from the world class Springs golf course. Radium Hot Springs pool and Pleidas Spa are only 5 min. away. The town of Invermere is a short 10 minute drive. There you'll find the beautiful public beaches of Windermere Lake. The nearby Columbia River offers fishing and boating.
The Mountain Retreat is 30 minutes to Panorama Ski and Golf Resort, and 1 hour to Golden's Kicking Horse Resort. The close proximity of the Purcell Mountains offers great snowmobiling, hiking and biking. This Mountain Retreat is perfect for the weekend getaway as it is only 2 ½ hours from Calgary.

I can't believe that more people don't take advantage of the Rockies in the early spring. We stayed at this wonderful Radium home the first week in May, 2010. My family consists of 7 adults, one who is a student at the U of A, taking a summer course starting May 10. In order to have a family vacation this was the only time available. My husband and I really enjoyed the lower basement suite, while our kids split up the second story bedrooms. For the 3 couples and 1 single adult, the confinguration was perfect. We enjoyed taking turns cooking in the convenient kitchen and everything we needed was supplied. The large island was a perfect place to store all of our games and we managed to sit 7 people around the dining table without feeling squished and uncomfortable.
The wildlife was amazing as the mountain sheep are coming down from the mountains at this time of year. Our first morning we watched a deer in the backyard and sheep walking down the street on our first evening. Our plans were to spend lots of family time and play family games...which we did all week long. We also went to Radium hot springs a couple of times but although Fairmont isn't very far, it was the yearly maintenance week, so we did not get a chance to experience it.
I just want to remind people to bring their own beach towels for the pools as understandably, one of the house rules is to leave the house towels at the cottage. I forgot to bring extras but we were able to pick up some cheap towels in Invermere for a good price.
Pete and Monica, thank you so much for sharing your vacation home with us. To anyone who is debating about renting this lovely home, we say GO FOR IT!

Just returned from a golf vacation spent at Pete and Monica's home in Radium Hot Springs July 19-26/08. There were 8 of us(4 adult couples)and we were extremely happy with the accomodations. The home was beautiful with its hardwood floors,high ceilings and contemporary fixtures.Getting ready for golf was a breeze as there are full size baths both up and down and a half bath on the main level which also came in handy. We spent most of our time outside on the large deck with the new bbq.The backyard is nicely landscaped with grass making it perfect if you were vacationing with children.The one day that we had rain we were still able to be outside at the front of the house under the covered veranda.We saw all kinds of wildlife including big horn sheep that walked right in front of the house one day.It was only a very short drive to numerous world class golf courses and all other conveniences.I would highly recommend this vacation home to any of my friends and look forward to returning in the future.
