Akiskinook is a charming private lakefront community located on the “warm side of the Rockies” on the shores of south of Invermere, British Columbia. The 156 units perched high on the banks overlook the lake and the ancient Purcell Mountains. Lake shore facilities include a 125 slip marina, storage for paddling vessels and a private beach. Owners and their guests can meet and play in the Recreation centre which includes a swimming pool, hot tub, squash court, recreation area and meeting room. There are computers for owners’ use and wireless internet.
Built in the 70s Akiskinook, its owners and the many families that return year after year are woven into the fabric of the Columbia Valley and have helped to define the valley’s lake/mountain “cottage culture.”
The word “A’kis’ kin ouk” is a first nation word which means “land of two lakes” and represents Lake Windermere and Columbia Lake; the headwaters of the Columbia River. First Nations thrived in the valley for many generations because of the temperate climate and the ability to live, hunt and fish year round in relative comfort. Many modern day adventures enjoy the valley for almost the same reasons.
Akiskinook is a private community.
