Grandma Stella had a dream. She and her children and grandchildren helped design and build a holiday house- a magical place where 3 or 4 families could come together and have fun, and also have private space for renewal and relaxation. A unique design makes it cozy enough for 4 and spacious enough for 12. This lakehouse is Stella's Dream. We hope our magical place will become your magical place.
The main floor has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed. The lower walkout level has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, one of the bedrooms has its own sitting area - great for the grandparents or families wanting to keep younger children close. Tuck away the older children or other guests in the loft level bedroom with a bunk bed (double lower and single upper) as well as a twin bed. Also in the loft challenge friends to foosball, or board games, play at the keyboard or reminisce watching old VCR movies.
Three bathrooms, two with showers, one with soaker tub ensure the bathroom lineups stay short even with a full house! Yep, we are on a septic system. Take care! Drinking water is reverse osmosis. Showers are soft water. Use water wisely. We are now on a water metre.
Don't miss any of the action in the kitchen. This house is designed around a spacious kitchen with counter seating for 6 and additional dining table seating for 6. The deck and hassle free propane barbecue are steps away. Views are great from all main floor lake windows.
The walkout lower level covered patio is not only a 60 second slow stroll to Hidden Bay beach but has great space outside to drip dry all the wet suits, towels, life jackets and other soggy beachwear and toys...another hassle free design. Washer, dryer and fridge are just upgraded. Stella's Dream Lakehouse is bright, clean and well maintained. Each level has different spaces to relax, play games watch tv or listen to music.
Meet your new neighbors at the beach -- boaters, water skiers, wake boarders and youngsters trying to catch the fish that got away. Catch a float or swim in the safe swimming area. Our neighbours might take you kayaking to the water lilies at the south end of the lake.
Pick raspberries, pears, apples in the grassy back yard by day; watch the stars from the beach or deck at night. Marvel at the beautiful lake views and sunsets. You likely will see deer in Windermere, possibly our yard.
Walk a block to the Family Pantry in the morning to buy a paper if you must. Prepay and they will reserve one for you. Family Pantry also sells food and liquor- great to be so close. A longer walk or a five minute drive gets you to Windermere Hopkins Market for fresh local produce, baking, different meats and items that will surprise you. Eat in or take out.
All ages and abilities can be accommodated at the many golf courses. Take a hike to see the hoodoos, or see them from the air by the local flying company. Explore the vibrant arts community, Saturday market, shopping and wine and dining in Inveremere, Radium and Fairmont.
Start planning your fall and winter activities now! Remember this is a great place to watch salmon swimming upstream to spawn in the early fall.
Panorama Ski Resort is a 45 minute drive away. Ski or board some of the longest runs in Canada. Remember the Bugaboo Heli skiing starts from here. You'll want to come back in every season!
