A great getaway on the warm side of the Rockies!

Columbia Valley Video

The Columbia Valley is a wide valley marking the border between the Rockies and the Purcells.

There are plenty of attractions both summer and winter, not the least of which is Lake Windermere.

We have enjoyed hiking, biking and water sports in the summer and skiing and skating in the winter.

We have a good amount of local knowledge to head you in the right direction if you enjoy the outdoors!
