This was our first time for renting with Vacation Rental by Owner and we loved the look of the house and fenced yard. A very nice big deck to sit on and enough chairs for all of us. The cleaning fee is a little steep especially when it has really not been very well cleaned. We also found open milk cartons and food in the fridge left by the previous renters. When we inquired we were told they had probably left them for the next renters to use. Also considering how much we paid for the property a gesture of a full bottle of water would have been nice seeing as there was a boil water advisory.

Owner response: Hi there, Thank you for your response. We haven't had a water boil advisory very often till this year and so this is a new issiue we have been faced with. I appreciate that you feel the water jug should be filled. I unfortunately haven't put a manual in the cabin yet for useful items such as water. There are two jugs underneath the stairs of the cabin for use if the water jug is empty. I forgot to mention that. My apologies. I was surprised that you mentioned the cabin wasn't that clean as we had professional cleaners after each stay. I will bring that up with my cleaners. Glad you enjoyed your stay. We try to keep the price of the cabin a bit lower at this amount as it is a cabin and unfortunately not a brand new home. The food issue I will bring up in the new manual I will put out as individuals think it is nice of them to leave behind condiments, etc...when in fact it isn't that appreciated. Thanks for staying and for the nice comments about the yard.

Having essentially grown up in Windermere, we found ourselves in circumstances where we chose to rent a house for part of a week. The location was convenient for us as it was close to family. We arrived on our date and found the house to generally be clean except for the outside deck, which was quite filthy from the previous renters. Although there were some nice appointments inside and some nicely themed bedrooms, there was a general feeling of much being dated. The top shelf of the refrigerator collapsed on us as soon as we loaded it with goods and we subsequently found that it was being held together with various types of tapes including masking tape. The kitchen and house were very well supplied with everything we needed however the bottled water cistern was close to empty upon arrival and we were forced to boil water due to the local boil water advisory. It is likely I picked up a water born bacteria while there due to drinking tap water in error. This would happen at any location in Windermere that does not have an internal treatment system. The owner should ensure the water cistern is full prior to each guests arrival. We found no umbrella on the deck however the owners father happened to live across the alley and was quite helpful and accommodating to us. He located an umbrella and he allowed us to store our bikes and other baggage in the garage of the place we were renting, however the neighbor, who was tasked with grounds upkeep, decided to not only haphazardly move our personal stuff so he could store his lawnmower exactly where we wanted it, but he subsequently locked all of our stuff away without informing us. An unfriendly sort, but we quickly resolved it and thankfully, we required little interaction with him. His wife however was lovely and greeted us warmly when we arrived. Overall, we felt that this place was overvalued for what you received and definite care and attention is needed to repair the numerous windows and missing screens and a paint job on the exterior would go a long way. In fact with a weekend of work, I believe it would be worth the value charged, but not at this time. We did bring attention to the owner, the state of cleanliness (of the outside deck) when we arrived and to her credit she refunded us the cleaning charge (which we had also protested was excessively high).

From the moment we arrived to the cabin we knew it was a place that had a lot of good memories. It was a weekend that we could finally get away from the city and relax. We were able to go to White Swan hot pools easily, relaxed by the campfire, and felt right at home. The owner was helpful and there for anything that we needed. The property is clean and I can imagine it is going to be beautiful when all the flowers are all planted. it is a close walk to the beach which was nice for going for a walk to the lake and having easy access to a swim. The stars at night were amazing and the rooms were fun and tastefully decorated. A very comfortable stay.

Feels like home! Clean and welcoming!

We travelled with 6 kids between 3 and 9, and 4 adults. There was more than enough room to sleep us all comfortably. We all had an amazing time and felt like we were in the heart of the mountains. We all had a blast in the fully fenced yard and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit at night. We truly felt at home, cooking our own meals in the full kitchen or enjoying some of the local spots. There is so much to do around town, or a 5 min drive from invermere. Very clean and welcoming. Just steps away from the beach, which was clean and perfect for young kids with a large playground, and a large green space to toss the football. We enjoyed summer nights on the deck and watching the local wildlife coming right up on the property. This will be our new summer home and will continue to book the cabin for hopefully years to come. I would recommend the cabin to my family and friends in a heart beat. PS If you like Chinese food, try the windy cafe located a 2 min walk from the cabin.

Why the Owner Chose Invermere:
This property has brought our family many happy times. I am sure you will create your own soon. :) We built this cabin from the ground up in 1986. The land used to be an orchard full of apples, cherries, and pears. So calming and yet exciting at the same time.
