The Orchard is a beautiful 1.5 acres on 13th Avenue (aka Westside Road) Invermere BC, a small mountain town of 4,000 people situated between Radium and Fairmont Hot Springs on Lake Windermere in the Columbia Valley.

The woodlet was originally established in 1963.  Today the land is being developed by Ski Home into a beautiful neighbourhood community nestled in the mountains.

The Orchard is a 15 home development with luxury adaptable, sustainable living at its core. It’s a short walk to all schools in Invermere, B.C, close to playing fields, tennis courts, and to the Rotary Skate Park. Hiking and biking trails are nearby and the downtown core of Invermere, with shops and restaurants, is a pleasant 15 minute walk away.

It’s happening! Stay tuned for sneaks as we grow.
