Great home - Good location
Living/Kitchen area was very open and spacious and we Loved having the bedrooms on separate levels. The house was very well stocked with kitchen items and linens and was Very clean.
Bigger and brighter than I expected.
Everything that you want in a cozy cabin. Surprise visit from Rosco the dog was an added treat.
It was a nice house to stay but needs some TLC!
Please know the review form gives us a choice of 'I love it' or 'Not really'. We didn't love it but we did think it was OK.
My hubby & I would like to be able to give a 3.5 star here for this house review but there is no choice for the half so we had to choose the 4 star to rate our family vacation in the review.
The house was nice. It was fairly comfortable on the COOL days. We had a couple very hot days during our stay 10 day stay in August which were NOT so comfortable though. No AC installed. We found lots to do in the Invermere area & other surrounding areas with our children.
We experienced a few issues with maintenance and other::
::The front doorknob was really really difficult to get open during our entire 10 days there. It was frustrating to try to get in every time we came back so really hoping they got that fixed.
::Some interior doorknobs were loose.
::We went to put our food items away during arrival and found the kitchen not cleaned. Contacted the owner and she had someone come do that cleaning during our first few hours of arrival.
::When we went to use the dishes/cups from the cupboard some of the dishes weren't clean
::The dishwasher wasn't working properly right at the start of our stay. The owner was going to have it fixed or replaced after we were gone.
::House cleaning issues such as a real good dusting of all areas & removal of spider webs strands is needed. One of my kids got a pretty long spiderweb strand stuck on them at the dining table that led up to the ceiling and it was coated with dust which made it easy to see but getting her freaked out by this was unnecessary.
::Would be great to have the deck swept off for anyone who is arriving so it looks as nice as in the photo.
::There was no green grass area for the kids to play on in the front of house as shown in the picture. It was pretty brown when we were there. The lady next door even apologized for it right when we arrived. The kids played a little bit out there anyway.
::We weren’t aware of the water being unsafe to use in the house for drinking/cooking until we had already booked the house. Honestly, we probably wouldn't have booked this place had we known about the water issue. So it would have been nice to know about this before booking. We ended up having to buy water during our 10 days stay which was an extra expense we had not counted on.
The owner was very willing to have things done so we feel confident everything is in good order since our stay in August
Love this place!
This is our second summer staying here. It feels like home. Nancy is quick to respond to my emails with questions or concerns. We will be back next summer!
Inside was comfortable and clean. Great bathrooms. Yard maintenance not happening!!
Property is well designed for several people to stay comfortably. AC unit in house was not installed so very hot in the house. TV in master is sitting on a wobbly stand and is a hazard if it fell. Basically no yard or deck maintenance happening. We think it is overpriced after talking to others renting in the same area. Well supplied kitchen utensils etc.
Fabulous cottage for a family getaway
This cottage is a great find in Windermere. It is a close walk to the lake and is in a very pretty setting. There is no backyard but the front porch is perfect to hang out on. The cottage is more spacious than it looks from the outside and is very well equipped on the inside. We had 6 people + a dog and no one ever felt crowded. The cottage can get hot, particularly in the loft, but we knew to expect that going to BC in the summer - and we happened to pick a very hot week where the average temp was 34 degrees Celcius. The cottage is incredibly well equipped, everything is in great working order, and not once did we need something we couldn't find. Nancy is great to deal with and is prompt and helpful in all of her responses. All of us are keen for a return visit, particularly the kids who were trying to convince me to book the cottage again within two weeks :) We will be back.
