6 Bedroom Luxury Lakefront Rental with hot tub
About Rayna McKay
This has been our family home for over 25 years. We have held fantastic family reunions here, awesome potluck dinners, and have enjoyed our time on the lake by water skiing, sailing, fishing, paddling and swimming. We have enjoyed the sunsets, the wildlife, and the peace and quiet of this location. I live onsite in the basement of the property so I'm available if you need anything but not intrusive. The back yard of the property is shared common area.
Rayna McKay purchased this House in 1991
Why Rayna McKay chose Chestermere
We have recently redone the living room and added a gas fireplace, we have refinished all of the hardwood floors, we have updated the master bathroom with a jetted tub and put in new fixtures and tile in the master shower. For beds we bought 4 new Tempurpedic king size beds and Serta Hotel Motel with 3 inches of memory foam for the queen bed and the two twin beds. There is a table with chairs for 8 in the nook, a large deck to entertain on. There is a sunny dock , a screen house, a firepit by the water. This home has a beautiful yard with hundreds of trees and shrubs. You can find sunny areas and shady areas to relax in.
What makes this House unique
Great location to swim, fish, sail or waterski from. There are 4 kayaks to use. You may be able to bring your motorboat and park it here. The home is located just 20 minutes to the Calgary Tower. (more in rush hour). There is easy access to Banff, Drumheller and the Tyrell Museum. You can get anywhere in Calgary with access to the Stoney Trail just 5 minutes away.

Lovely! Clean, inviting, lots of room and very comfortable!
10 girl cousins - it’s our second year here, and it’s perfect! We love it :)
I visited this property with 7 of my family members pus one baby. The home was just as pictured. It was very clean. We were met by the owner who gave us a tour. She had set up a bassinet for the baby and also had a bath. There was a lovely gift basket waiting for us which she had put much thought into for our group of 7 women. The weather wasn't great during our stay but I could see where this would be a great place to visit in the warmer months. The hot tub wasn't working but was going to be repaired the next week. I would highly recommend this property.
Home away from home
This is not just any vacation property! From the moment we arrived we were greeted by the owner and given a personalized walk through the house, along with a lovely basket full of goodies to enjoy the experience with. We rented this property while our house was being renovated and were pleasantly surprised to have all the comforts of home (with some extra special seasonal touch). The property was immaculate, clean, beautiful, and cozy too! We loved the breathtaking view of the lake and the natural habitat. While here we got to see squirrels playing in the trees every day......and a birds eye view of a Bald eagle! The home, the attention to details, the cleanliness, the service and location make this home a five star property!
We wouldn't hesitate to do it again and again - The Johanson Family : )
Great host, great house and great location
This is our 3rd time staying at the "Lakehouse". It's a great house and Rayna is a great host.
Cozy and Convenient!!!
Its not too often that you find a great home with a great owner...look no further.
First off my group was greeted by the owner, not common and was a nice touch, Rayna showed us around her beautiful home, showed us all the amenties that it offered. she even placed a little gift basket of snacks which came in handy. she is very thoughtful and generous. one instance, she noticed we were out of foil and went out and got some for us.
the home speaks for itself, once you enter the kitchen you are greeted with an awesome view of the lake, and although it was too cold , we were offered to take the kayaks/canoes out.
we enjoyed the outdoor gazebo and firepit , took advantage of the laundry machine and indoor hot tub, cooked our food over the propane grill. this house has it all. Which made it better was that it wasnt in a noisy area and close enough to Calgary and other stores.
I would highly recommend to the next group of travellers look to stay somewhere comfortable and close.
only 2hrs from Banff ,
Love this place!
This is our second time here. It is a beautiful, comfortable home with lots of amenities. It is clean and well cared for. The view of the lake and the great backyard are amazing. It won’t disappoint!
