Best family Resort in the valley situated on twenty acres of forested land and lakefront. Wood burning fireplace, private patio, barbeque. Fully equipped suite, Insuite washer /dryer for the popsicle stains. :) It has all the dishes, towels, bedding you will ever need for 4 people. One bedroom with queen and one bedroom/den with double.

The resort is 10 min from the main town of Invermere.

This resort is great for families and couples of all ages. NOT great for young people who want to have parties. No dogs allowed, no smoking. The kids will love running and biking all over the resort, you will meet our great neighbours while sipping on a bevy on the deck and the kids will make lots of new friends! Huge grassy spot out front for playing games and badminton. We have spent endless houirs watching the kids have fun!

Private Beach and marina is a short stroll from your front door. Boat moorage availible.Convenience store with all the nessesities is only a five minute walk. The quant little town of Invermere is only a five minute drive. Invermere offers a host of unique shops and restaraunts nestled in a Bavarian/European influenced setting.

My favorite stop on a Saturday morning is the Main Street Bakery that serves up fresh coffee, breads and cinimon rolls that are baked in their wood fired brick oven. For the Ski Lovers in the Family there is two choices only 20 minutes away. World Class Panorama Ski Resort (Same people who developed Whistler BC) offers breath taking views and ski terrain and Fairmont Ski Hill offers affordable family skiing. For the Golfers in the family the Invermere Valley hosts some of the best rated courses in BC! (Grey Wolf, Radium Springs)

After a day on the slopes or hitting the greens you can indulge yourself at either Fairmont Hot Springs or Radium Hot Springs. These two World Renowned natural, mineral hot springs/spas are open year round are the perfect way to relax and rejuvinate yourself. For those looking for more adventure I can tell you how to hike in to some completely natural Hot Springs bubbling out of the side of a Mountain at 104 Degrees.

The Valley area also includes numerous amusement parks for kids, including miniature golf, horseback riding, and river rafting.

This Non-Smoking Condo is fully renovated including granite countertops. Enjoy your stay!

About Shauna Rowell and Robyn Ring

HI there, we are a family of Three, and we travel with my sister-in -law and her husband all the time. This was a train ride we went on while in the Okanagan. We love Akiskinook for its simple pleasures, the beach, nature walks, the pool and tennis courts. This resort gives us the freedom to let our son to ride around on his bike, and go to all these places without our supervision so we all get a holiday. It's self enclosed area is very safe and all the owners and renters here are friendly. THis is a family resort where there is stuff to do for the whole family.

Bedrooms inadequate. Linens in LR pull-out DIRTY. Soap scum in tub.

Nice spot for Calgarians; far for Victoria. The unit is dark & lacks air flow. The unit could use a deeper clean between guests. Windows were smudgy and the unit smelled musty.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We have hired a new cleaner so this doesn't happen again. Sorry to hear this was not up to standards. We will also install some better lighting. The layout in these units limits our options but there's always room for improvement!

Towels in dryer and dishwasher running when we got there approx 4:30. Lots and lots of black beetles. Was not happy and my daughters would not sleep in their beds. Otherwise we enjoyed the unit. Everything there that you need.

Fun family getaway! The community spirit in this resort was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Chairs provided at the beach, Friday free entertainment on the green area, swimming for the kids at the shallow safe beach, indoor pool and hot tub at night! So many fun things to do, they even have an adventure pathway walk for the kids on the property. The kids also played at the playground and met lots of other kids to hang out with during the week. Perfect, as it gave us some alone time!

Beautiful home with large backyard for the kids, plenty of room for two families.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed your home for our families holiday. We had lots of fun in the backyard roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, we walked into town for ice cream and other treats, so nice to be so close to everything. Kinsmen beach is a wonderful beach with the new spray park right there, playground and swim area. my kids never wanted to leave. The house is outfitted very well and it made our stay so enjoyable to have we needed right where we needed it. Thanks again!
