About Wendy Thorney

Introduced to Invermere on the Lake and Panorama Ski Resort after being invited by friends for a ski weekend. The drive to Invermere from Calgary, traversing the Continental Divide is magical!. The winding highway drive through the majestic Mountains is breathe taking and the wildlife you might come across such as moose, elk, big horn sheep, deer, black bears and at Christmas even a wild turkey is astonishing! Always have the camera ready for that Kodak moment!!

After purchasing the property three years ago we made a decision to renovate the Authentic Lake House for renting, to share the Invermere Experience!!

Presently we reside in Toronto and continue to enjoy Invermere and the Western hospitality throughout the year...

Come enjoy Invermere on the Lake, it's like no other!!

Wendy Thorney purchased this bungalow in 2010

Great house with a fabulous lake view

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the lake house. My husband & I along with our 2 adult children & their spouses had a great holiday. 'The house was large enough for us to each have our own room and it has 2 large rooms as well a big kitchen and front deck for all of us to be together. The house had absolutely everything you could need. Wendy & Doug were fabulous; they respected our privacy but were available when we had questions. They suggested activities and gave us great directions to some of the local treasures. The house was very clean and the rooms were a good size. The kitchen had everything we needed including a salad spinner and cheese grater; things I didn't expect to find in a rental. Morning coffee on the front deck was a fabulous way to start our day. The fenced backyard was great for our dog. We would highly recommend this property to others.

The lake house gives off a good first impression, like the landlords. However after spending a little time there I realized first impressions can be deceiving. The vacuum cleaner was broken, dishwasher was leaking, bedroom windows wouldn't open and the weather stripping around them was falling off letting in the cold. The back door was damaged, the "double paned" glass was only single allowing a build up of ice on the inside of the door and brought more cold into the lounge and kitchen. The door also wouldn't close properly so it wouldn't lock which was a safety issue. The biggest problem, the landlords wouldn't take responsibility for their house's problems and when I approached them I was bluntly told to "Just deal with it".

Owner's Response: Mitchell Steere is one of those unpleasant vindictive soles who was given eviction for late payment! We are happy he has left the Lake House, good riddance! PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ OUR PAST REVIEWS WRITTEN BY OUR HAPPY GUESTS! The Lake House awaits you 🌞?

A perfect combination of comfort and class!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time at the lake house! The purpose of our stay was to be unscheduled and unplugged and to enjoy some peaceful and fun time with our pup. We achieved this aim in spades. The house is in a very quiet location and is beautifully decorated. We had everything we needed to feel right at home. We had all the privacy we needed to really chill out. Both of us and our pup really enjoyed the backyard and the covered patio. This house ranks right up there with the many rental properties we've enjoyed over the years! We recommend the lake house highly and we'll be telling all our friends about it. We will definitely be renting this house in the future. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

A very relaxing, comfortable, homey Lake house

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Wendy's Lake house. Immediately upon arrival we were very please of the level of cleanliness. The house was fully stocked right down to the chilled glasses in the freezer! My kids LOVED picking their bunk beds and were switching it up each night. There were also plently of standing fans to keep the rooms cool at night which was great. I had fun playing scrabble from the games there and picking out the cheesiest movie we could find (Another Stakeout!) The house is so close to the public beach which has an amazing new beach house that has a great snack bar and a couple of really fun slides in the water!! It's a quick drive to the Radium hot springs and mini golf....which the kids also loved. We really enjoyed BBQing in the evening and had a really lovely family dinner in their covered eating area in the back. I loved having my coffee in the morning in the front sunroom with the view of the lake (leaving my hubby to do the dishes from breakfast hahaha). My kids were very sad to leave and already asking to go back!! Thanks for the lovely stay!!!

Well positioned, spacious and well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

Superb setting at the end of a quiet residential road, overlooking Windermere Lake. The spacious property is very well equipped, and it is a short walk to the beach, the pub, and town. Our party of 7 adults were very comfortable here. We went hiking on trails, canoeing in the wetlands, lazing on the beach and osprey watching from the balcony of the local pub! The gas barbeque was amazing, and we made full use of the front and back decks. Wendy and Doug were very friendly, and keen to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We would certainly recommend Lake House!

Beautiful, quiet and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful city escape. Lovely lake view from the large front deck and the kitchen is the best equipped kitchen I have ever seen in a VRBO!! We LOVED our 5 days and can't wait to come back. Short walk to beach and town was a bonus. Hated to leave!!

Car: recommended

Sports Enthusiast? Your in the right place! Award winning Golf Courses - Eagleridge and Copper Point Golf Clubs close by. Walk to Kinsmen Beach and lie in the sun, dig in the sand, take a swim in the lake, and for your convenience water sport rentals are available in town.

Ski the Panorama and Fairmont Ski Resorts only a 30 minute scenic drive away. Hockey, ice skating and snow shoeing on Windemere Lake is enjoyed by all...Great fun for the whole family!

And, after it's all said and done, relax at the Fairmount or Radium Hot Springs, both only 30 minutes away. Nothing cures what ails you like the Sulfur Hot Springs!!
