26 Aug Wondering Where to Buy in the Columbia Valley? The Other Lake!
The Columbia Valley is defined by water.
Whether it’s the sparkling lakes and rivers or the hot springs that anchor the Valley to the north and south, it’s the water that has drawn people to this region for generations.
Today, the Columbia Valley welcomes thousands of people each year. Some live here full-time; others are seasonal residents; but many are visitors from across Canada and around the world.
Of the multitudes that visit each year, how many dream of homeownership here in the Valley?
The vast, natural beauty of the landscape and the hospitable climate combined with the abundance of outdoor recreation make the Columbia Valley one of the fastest growing regions of British Columbia.
But, with the variety of options up and down the Valley, for those ready to take the leap, it makes deciding where to buy a challenging question.
The rivers and lakes are endlessly attractive to prospective homeowners whether they be full-time or seasonal residents, retirees, or recreational homeowners.
The sparkling appeal of Lake Windermere has inspired development on its shores for decades. And for good reason: proximity to the amenities in nearby Invermere and pleasant water temperature that invites all manner of water activity – relaxing on the beach, swimming, standup paddle boarding, kayaking, boating, waterskiing, and more.
But, for those who may not know, or who may need reminding, just south of Lake Windermere lies Columbia Lake – pristine and far less trafficked, an equally sparkling gem of the Columbia Valley. Not to mention, the scenic headwaters of the Columbia River.
Warmer still, boasting seemingly endless miles of protected shoreline, and only minutes south of Fairmont Hot Springs and a short distance from Invermere, Columbia Lake brings together all the very best in lake and Rocky Mountain experience.
Enjoy it all! Relaxation, tranquility, and convenience to amenities such as hot springs, groceries, shopping, restaurants, and endless opportunities for world-class outdoor recreation – golf, hiking, mountain biking, alpine and Nordic skiing, and, last but not least, everyone’s favourite: a tube float down the Columbia!
For those looking to purchase – existing Valley residents in need of a change of scenery and lifestyle; people buying for the first time, for retirement, or to escape the burgeoning hustle, bustle, and expense of urban life – there are still Columbia Valley lake view opportunities available. Particularly, if you look south to strikingly serene and peaceful Columbia Lake.
Columbia Lake provides a place where reflective solitude coexists harmoniously with a spirit of community connection and a oneness with nature. This could not be more true than in the new lakeside community, Springwater Hill – an experience like no other.
It’s easy to get here: drive south from Windermere, past Fairmont Hot Springs. Turn left off the highway at Coy’s Par 3 Golf Course and arrive at Springwater Hill.
