About Linda and Aldo Laratta

We first fell in love with the community of Timber Ridge when, on a chance opportunity of finding the community gate open, we took the private road which leads to the beach, park and boat launch areas. The drive through the beautiful woods was magical and culminated in a stunning view of Lake Windermere. As custom home builders, we were particularly excited to find our property during a family vacation. Nestled in a mature community, this property had not yet been developed. We were excited for the opportunity to design and build the cabin of our dreams in the beautiful Columbia Valley community of Timber Ridge. The result is a lovely, executive style cabin nestled in the trees. One of three phases in the community of Timber Ridge, the cabin sits on a quiet cul de sac that is accessible only by local traffic. The landscaping and positioning of the home on the lot provides seclusion and privacy in the backyard. On the interior of the cabin, the windows are strategically designed to bring the outside in, while the folding glass walls in the Great Room and Dining Area extend the interior space out to the Deck. Both beautiful and practical, this cabin is perfect for entertaining large groups. We hope you enjoy 'Timber's Den' as much as we do.

Linda and Aldo Laratta purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Linda and Aldo Laratta chose Lake Windermere

Our cabin is conveniently situated in the Columbia Valley on Lake Windermere where Spring comes at least one month earlier and Fall one month later than in Calgary, Alberta which is only a 2 1/2 hours drive away. Being so close to Calgary, it is only a short, but beautiful, drive to our vacation home. It is close enough to head out to the cabin on weekends and to drop back into Calgary, when necessary, during longer stays in the summer. Conveniently located a short distance away from the National Park Resort Town of Banff, we often take little side trips into Banff on our way to and from the cabin. The Radium and Fairmont Hot Springs Resorts are short distances from the cabin and we are conveniently located in the middle of a hot bed of Golf Course Resorts, including Copper Point, Eagle Ranch, Radium Resort, and Grey Wolf.

What makes this bungalow unique

We start our day with a coffee on the deck. Often we walk or jog along the tree lined private roadway to the lake. Walking, it takes about 15 minutes each way. Joggers , will continue along the lake and park. If it's beach day, the 3 minute drive is great for hauling beach gear and those who wish not to walk. A boat day launch is at the private marina and boat slips are available for rent there as well. The beach overlooks a swimming and diving dock area which is great for families with children. And if you want to do nothing, slide open the glass walls, drop the electric screens and enjoy the cabin. In the winter, skiing, skating, snowmobiling all end with a cozy fire. When our lives slow down, we will be spending most of our days at Timber's Den.

Family Celebration

  • 4 of 5

Very nice home that could accommodate 4 couples plus 2 young children easily. It was so nice to have everyone together in one house yet not feel crowded.

Also, really enjoyed the beach area which was very nice with playground, beach volleyball court, and lovely large lawn area.

We all had a great time! Thank you!😊

Great property with lots of room

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The house was very spacious, but had more than enough space to accommodate all of us. It was not too far from skiing or town, so we were able to enjoy all the nearby amenities without needing to travel too far. The house was clean and tidy, with lots of things to do if you wanted to stay in for the night. Would recommend to any large group looking in the area.

Would highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with my stay at Timbers Den. I found everything in amazing condition and was extremely impressed with all the bathrooms and built in speaker system. We were only 3 minutes away from Copper Point Golf Club and 5 minutes away from Eagle Ranch Golf Course. I plan on coming back to Timbers Den on an annual basis.
