    Invermere is a mountain lovers paradise, situated on Lake Windermere, with the Rockies to the east and Purcell mountains to the west, and only a 15 minute drive to the entrance of Kootenay National Park. I work in the national park and can make many hiking and site seeing suggestions. Forests, animal wildlife, freshwater sinkhole swimming, lakes, rivers, creeks, mountain walking, running, cycling, camping, are all accessible from my home.
    My partner and I have each lived in British Columbia for over a decade because once we were here we fell in love with the area. We are both passionate about the outdoors, hiking, mountain biking, cooking great food, and our animals. We live close enough to town that you can walk or bike there, but there's also walking trails right from our yard. We know all the best places in the area and can recommend tons of great places to explore nearby, and across the Kootenay's in southeastern BC.
