What does your life on Columbia Lake look like?
Make life on Columbia lake your own. Sunshine, water, endless views. How will you spend your days?
Undeniably, Lake Windermere is a gem in the extraordinary landscape of the Columbia Valley.
People come from near and far to revel in its crisp, clear beauty nestled at the foot of the western slope of the Rockies.
But, did you know? Only a few minutes down the road there is an opportunity to enjoy an enhanced understanding of what life on the lake can mean; the experience of an even deeper sense of place. Columbia Lake.
Pristine and blissfully uncrowded, the striking azure waters of Columbia Valley’s warmest lake offers the ultimate in Rocky Mountain leisure and paradise: a range of water sports, stunning scenery, and peaceful R ’n R no matter the time of year.
The breathtaking, tranquil headwaters of the Columbia River is but mere minutes south of Lake Windermere. At more than 10.5 sq. mi (2,758 ha), Columbia Lake is the largest warm water lake in the East Kootenay and is fed by several small tributaries. It is where the mighty Columbia River originates, emptying 2000 km later into the Pacific Ocean at Astoria, Oregon.
With waters crystal clear and peaceful, it’s ideal for swimmers, boaters, paddlers – kayak, paddle board, canoe – windsurfers, kite boarders, and other watercraft.
Uniquely, 90% of the east side of the lake is undeveloped; pristine and protected, it is land dedicated to conservation.

The shores of the lake are alive and offer seemingly endless encounters with our neighbouring wildlife – Osprey, Bald Eagles, the Great Blue Heron and the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep.
