About Caylie

We are a busy family that would love to spend more time at our cabin, but the key word 'busy' is the problem. Between school, work, sports and extracurricular activities we don’t get out as much as we would like so we offer our ‘family time’ cabin to you so you too can find the relaxation and fun we so enjoy. Our favorite things to do while at the cabin are playing at the beach, going on nature walks, trail rides and golfing in the summer while the winter is full of skiing, snowmobiling, skating on the lake and ice fishing.

Caylie purchased this house in 2011

Why Caylie chose Lake Windermere

We built this home in 2011 because we wanted a place to escape and relax to with our family and friends. We were always coming out to Invermere to golf, ski and play so we decided to build our own cabin to enjoy.

We built in the Cottages of Copper Point to be in the middle of the action, and still have a private, secluded setting. We are between Radium and Fairmont and right outside Invermere and Windermere so you are able to get anywhere quickly - there are only 2 other homes within shouting distance, and we often see wildlife strolling through our yard.

Overall pretty nice place.

  • 4 of 5

The place is nice and located not far from Invermere. My only suggestions would be update the dinner plates as the ones there were on the smaller end, overall dusting from the upper ledges and lights and handles on the back patio door. Overall nice place for a few days.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay! Caylie was absolutely lovely to deal with, and very quick to respond with any questions or concerns. The house itself was exactly as we had hoped! Fully equipped, tons of space, and a great location. It was the perfect little getaway, we would definitely recommend! Thanks again for everything Caylie!

Disappointing and difficult experience with owner

  • 1 of 5

A portion of our group's damage deposit was improperly withheld by the owner of this property for an existing issue in the premise that should have been dealt with before our arrival (broken oven handle). Seemingly, because we did not inform the owner of the issue, she assumed we caused the damage.

We also found the system for temperature control in the home to be frustrating. The owner controls the air conditioning remotely. Thus, we had to communicate with the owner via email or text when we wanted the temperature changed. This was unnecessarily inconvenient and resulted in one very warm night, as we decided we wanted the air conditioning on after the owner had presumably gone to bed. We did not appreciate that this would be the arrangement when we booked our stay.

Owner's Response: This was definitely our least pleasant experience with a guest since we started renting our home 5 years ago. To address the damage deposit: I withheld $90 to cover the new handle for the stove and provided the guest with the receipt so she could see there was no upcharge. The handle and stove were in perfect condition on check in, and the guest admitted in email to pulling it off during their stay. The repair man tried to screw it back on, but the inside of the handle was stripped and broken, so we had no choice but to replace it. I did not charge them for the additional cost of installation ($95) and I phoned Fridgidaire and Trail appliances to see if this was an issue that was common with this model of stove - they both said it would be very unusual and probably require significant force. (We also discovered later that the glass on the inside of the stove had been broken and carefully cleaned up - there was no chargeback for that either.) Vrbo also got involved at the guest's request and required photos and other proof, with threat of removing our listing should they find something fishy going on - we provided everything required and there were no sanctions imposed on our listing. With respect to the air conditioning - our guests have control of the temperature during their stay, as you would expect - I can't imagine staying somewhere where I couldn't control the heat or AC! The guest is referring to the fact that the heat was on when they arrived, since it was only 8degrees outside; I texted her on their arrival day to say that if they would like to switch to AC at any time, just let me know, since it can be hard to predict the weather at that time of year, and I can have it done within 2 minutes from the app. This is less hassle for guests since they don't need to stand there and get a lesson in the HVAC system from me in order to switch it over. Unfortunately, they texted me at midnight asking for the AC to be turned on and I didn't get it until 6am the following morning - when I immediately turned it on. In the meantime, they could have turned the heat down so it wouldn't come on at all, and/or opened a window, since it was only 12 degrees overnight that night. I'm sorry that the house was too warm for them from midnight to 6am, and I rectified the issue asap. It is only switching over from heat to AC that a guest can't do themselves, the actual temperature control is fully within guests control.
