Overview

Lake Windermere House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our Kootenay Vacation Rental home is a 1920's Kootenay National Park two-story house that was moved from Radium Hot Springs and has had lots of updates. The spacious interior is warm and charming, with original character hardwood floors, and full height double-sided fireplace. Our vacation rental home is just a short walk to Kinsmen beach and Invermere's unique shopping and dining, close to everything yet far enough from the train tracks to not be disturbed.

Our home has 4 bedrooms. There is a king-size bed and bunk-bed in the large master bedroom with plenty of room for a playpen, 2 bedrooms with queen-size beds, and one bedroom with a double bed and a single bed. There is also a hide-a-bed in the family room. We can accommodate a maximum of 8 adults, or up to 10 people if children are included. There are two full bathrooms. All bedding, linens, towels and pillows are provided. There is an assistant property manager on-site (in a self-contained basement suite.)

The full-size, fully equipped kitchen has an island and cook-top. Basic spices, coffee, coffee filters, sugar and tea are provided. There is a double-sided wood-burning fireplace that faces the kitchen on one side, and the living room on the other side. Upstairs there is a TV room with lots of videos and board games for the kids. High speed wireless internet and NetFlix are available. There are views of Mount Swansea from the living room and the second floor.

The large, fenced yard has lots of trees that offers privacy for family fun. There is a large spacious deck with patio tables, chairs and a propane BBQ at the front of the house, a smaller deck off the living room, and a balcony/deck with chairs on the upper level. There is a fire-pit in the backyard (firewood provided).

Big, centrally located, clean house

  • 5 of 5

Six adults, all sleeping in separate beds, have stayed at this house twice and we were fully satisfied both times. I recommend it to anyone with small or larger groups. The layout is open and the character is fantastic.

Beautiful home

A beautiful house with nice yard and short walk to downtown, but on a quiet road.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a terrific time in this wonderful home for our 5th Annual Family Retreat to Invermere! The large living and dining room was perfect! The bedrooms are not all on the same level which was very good as we had three children under the age of 2 1/2--at least everyone wasn't up all night! We look forward to spending another week next year at this place!

Great place

  • 4 of 5

Worked absolutely perfect for four guys golfing and each with their own bedroom. The house was excellently equipped with everything for cooking and the BBQ was a bonus. The weather prevented us from having a fire outside but we did use the fireplace inside one cold rainy night. I will definitely stay here again when we come golfing, hopefully next year.

Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Lovely character home. Lots of room for everyone. We enjoyed our nightly fires at the firepit roasting marshmallows and hotdogs. The lake is a short walk away, and many members in our family walked the short distance to downtown as well.

We will definately consider staying here again when we return to Invermere!
