About Bettywyn and Tom Chapman

We are two professionals in our late fifties and early sixties who enjoy everything about the outdoors during all seasons of the year.

Bettywyn and Tom Chapman purchased this House in 2007

Why Bettywyn and Tom Chapman chose Invermere

This location provides us with an activity center for our hiking, quading, swimming, kayaking, rafting, water skiing, snow skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and ice skating. We are surrounded by golf courses which our friends use, but we are too busy with other activities to have time to golf.

What makes this House unique

We are avid skiers and snowboarders who frequent Kicking Horse Resort in winter. We use our boat on Lake Windermere, and enjoy bird watching in the Columbia Wetlands. We regularly go to the Saturday Farmer's Market on Main Street through July and August. We walk our dog 1.5 km down Walker Lane to the lake. One of our favorite eateries is Ray Ray's, a lovely lakeside restaurant with outside seating, excellent food and great service.

Check in and out was very easy. The beds are all very comfy. We loved outdoor space out back to run around as well as the little park.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

The home was clean, on a quiet club de sac with stunning mountain views! It was perfect for our dog as well as there was a hugh field right beside the home so a quick get away for a walk. We had the privilege of meeting Tom and Bettywyn at the end of our stay and they are sincerely looking to create a great stay for people using their home.

                                                                  Spacious, clean and comfortable home with a field of deer out back!

                                                                  Clean, new and beautiful!

                                                                  Andrew W.

                                                                  Nice home on the inside, plenty of room! Only recommendation would be to tidy up the front porch and back deck with fresh paint to give it added curb appeal.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  We have been waiting for the booking level to drop to a point where we can do the painting. We painted the front deck this past weekend and will be doing the same for the back deck before the end of September.

                                                                  Again thanks for the feedback. We always appreciate suggestions as to how we can make things better for our guests.
