Come relax and enjoy a nice peaceful holiday from the hustle and bustle of big city life. Our 2 Berm (+ den), 2 bath condo in Heron Point is perfectly situated in the small town of Invermere, BC. For the avid skiers, you can take a short drive (15 minutes) up to Panorama ski hill and enjoy your day up there.
There's also great cross-country skiing on Windermere Lake (5 minute walk) at the base of Heron Point. Enjoy a nice soothing hot tub after a day of fun skiing and then sit back and relax by the fireplace before winding down for the night.
You can also enjoy a number of unique shops, excellent dining, ice-skating and nordic skiing on Lake Windermere, and hard-hitting hockey at the local arena. Invermere is a rather unique town in a delightfully unique area.
In summer, boating on Lake Windermere, Golfing and hiking in nearby mountain-lands proves to be a great summer getaway. The Windermere Valley is 'cottage country' for many Albertans and it's always a good idea to book early as bookings go fast for summer.

Invermere provides us with the opportunity to participate in numerous sports to satisfy everyone, not to mention quiet walks, great shopping and wonderful meals in local restaurants.
Our condo is in beautiful Invermere, British Columbia, nestled between the Rocky Mountains and the Purcell Mountains. Our unit overlooks Lake Windermere, in the heart of the mountains, offering spectacular views. The area is well known for its terrific golfing, boating and hiking in the summer as well as world class skiing at Panorama and snowmobiling at Toby Creek in the winter. The condo is a 5 minute walk to the heart of town or to the beach.
We stayed at this condo for 3 days, and at first, the owner was pleasant to deal with. However, when we arrived at the condo and noticed that the TV wasn’t working, the owner became unresponsive. When we received the confirmation email from the owner once all payment were processed, the email specifically listed a cell phone number to call if we have any problems. We contacted the owner three times (by phone, by personal email and by email thru the VRBO site) to find out how to operate the TV, and we never did hear back from the owner. The VRBO description noted that this unit has satellite and cable, however, we suspect that it didn’t, and it may have something to do with the fact that there is a ‘for sale’ sign on the balcony. If the unit is being sold, the satellite and cable may have been cancelled. It would have been great if the owner told us about this because we would have rented another condo, instead. We knew it was going to be a rainy weekend in Invermere, and we were counting on watching movies on TV while we couldn't be out golfing, hiking, etc. Although we had a great time in Invermere, I would not recommend this particular condo to anyone. Since there is an abundance of condo rentals in the area, it would be worth your while to give your hard earned money to someone more deserving than the owner of this condo.
This place was clean, well located and the pool was amazing. It was nice to be able to walk downtown and grab something from the bakery and then down to the beach.
We were happy with the condo and how nice the balcony was. It was a great place to watch the sunset and enjoy a glass of wine. Would come back again.
We had no complaints about staying in this condo. We stayed in the month of June (2010) and were there just before the busy tourist season. The condo was quite, very clean, well appointed, and a short stroll to either town or the beach.
I had noticed there was a train track nearby when looking at the location map, but a local had told me you never really notice the train, and quite frankly we didn't.
The pool was nice, and since we were there before the busy season, it was not crowded. The BBQ was nice and fully functioning. Laundry in-suite is always a bonus.
The only thing I would change would be that the wireless internet only worked in the common areas. The common area was nice, but I would prefer to be able to use it in the room.
There were plently of maps and information on the region, and some fun dining of various levels in the town.
A very nice stay.
