About Marilyn Whitehead

We are a professional couple with 2 kids. This property we lived in for 8 years and we decided to keep it as an investment property

Marilyn Whitehead purchased this cabin in 1997

Why Marilyn Whitehead chose British Columbia Rockies

A great location that is quieter than than the nearby Invermere and Fernie area. There is more of a local feeling at this lake where people are more down to earth and friendly. Spectacular Mountain views and opportunities for numerous outdoor activities exist here.

What makes this cabin unique

Summer is great because the temperature is hot and the nearby lake is quite refreshing. Golfing is close by if I want to as well as numerous other outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking and quading I enjoy. Skiing at Kimberly is one of the best kept secrets as far as a great ski area is concerned. Shopping is less than 30 minutes away.

Sandy Warm Beachfront 3 Level Cabin Near Rocky Mountains

Would not return

Very nice location very clean

appliances so old they barely work it took 2 hours to cook a frozen pizza in the oven and 8 minutes to heat up vegetables already cooked. half the lights didn't work which was very unsafe when outside the cabin in the evening.

The pedal boat takes on water so could not be used, there are only old resin patio chairs no proper outside dining table and indoor only has 6 chairs at table very hard to feed 10 people.

Despite the nice location we will not be back we paid for luxury and all we really got was a place to sleep by the water and there are many more affordable options if that's all you are looking for.

Owner's Response: Appliances have been replaced as well as the patio furniture. Exterior lights now work ( a wire was accidentally cut by the contractor during roof replacement). If a guest brings an issue to our attention we deal with the problem right away. We have guests that return every year as they simply love the lake experience.
