Windermere History

Windermere was home to European settlers who settled in the area to farm or look for gold. The lake and the town were named by Gilbert Malcolm Sproat, a businessman, office holder, and author from Scotland who lived in East Kootenay. 

Windermere has a rich history, and you can still see some of the original buildings built by the original settlers. A popular building in the area is the "The Stolen Church". The name of the church arose as a result of an incredible story that occurred during the 1890s.

In the railway town of Donald, St. Peter's Anglican Church was the favourite church of one Mrs. Kimpton. In 1897, she moved to Windermere from Donald, and she ended up missing her church so much until her husband had no choice but to literally steal the church. The town officials didn't know what hit them since the husband shipped the church by wagon and barge and had it rebuilt in its present location. So make sure to visit the church.

Fishing

Windermere Lake is the perfect place for fishing without leaving the town. The lake is abundant with Rainbow Trout, Northern Pikeminnow, Largemouth Bass, Pumpkinseed, Kokanee, Bull Trout, Cutthroat Trout, Bourbon and Mountain Whitefish. Boat launches are available at James Chabot Provincial Park. The lake is also popular with windsurfers. Other nearby fishing spots include Columbia Lake, where you can also surf and explore the origin of the Columbia River (the 4th largest river system in North America).

Parks and Beach

James Chabot Provincial Park is located on the banks of Windermere Lake and it features stunning views of the lake and mountains and a wide sandy beach. Other features include a playground, boardwalk, changing rooms and bathrooms. Windermere Lake Provincial Park is situated at the southeastern end of the lake. It features lots of wildlife, nature trails and a natural vista of the lake and mountain ranges. Kinsmen Beach is located on the western shore of the lake in Invermere. It features a splash park, trails, playgrounds, winter skating, floating water slides; and kayaks, paddling boards and boats for rent. Windermere public Beach is on the eastern shore. It offers a nice sandy beach with playgrounds and an area perfect for a stroll by the lake.

Golfing

Windermere Valley Golf Course is an 18-hole course with well-maintained fairways that offer a good experience for golfers and a spectacular view of the landscape. Other nearby golf courses include Copper Point and Eagle Ranch Golf Resort in Invermere, Spur Valley Greens and Radium Hot Springs Resort in Radium Hot Springs, and Fairmont Hot Springs Courses; Riverside Golf Resort and Mountainside Golf Course. Fairmont Hotsprings also features about 1,000 square metres of natural pools, great for taking a dip.

Festivals

The Windermere Fall Fair and Scarecrow Festival is held annually in September. The festival attracts people from all over Columbia Valley and features showcasing of local talent incuding, bent-willow furniture making, wood-carving, blacksmithing, gardening, kid contests and much more.

Other great spots you can explore around Windermere include Windermere Valley Museum, Artym Gallery, Mount Nelson Athletic Park (bike park and skate park) and Valley Fitness Centre. These spots are located in Invermere, which is just a short drive from Windermere, in fact, both towns share Windermere Lake.
