About the owner: We moved to Windermere in 1995 with our two children. We absolutely love the valley for all the activities around us. The people are friendly & we were taken back by the beauty & way of life here. The terrain is incredible, as we like to hike, mountain bike, run, paddle, back country ski, cross country ski, skate: the list goes on!
Why the Owner Chose Invermere, BC, Canada:
We had the opportunity to buy this unique property & couldn't pass it up. There is no other property in the valley like this you have the best of both worlds with water front, mountains right in town but on your very own peninsula. The water comes to life with birds & all sorts of wild life it is truly a unique spot.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The views are incredible & quite peaceful as you are in town yet it is very private. You can chose to take advantage of the water & sights or relax, sit back & unwind.
