Self Storage in Windermere

 cloud storage

Our Windermere self storage property is located in the Regional District of East Kootenay, in the Columbia River Valley of Southeastern British Columbia, and is conveniently accessible from Highway 93/95, a major transportation route. We provide residents of Windermere and the surrounding area with a wide selection of storage units to fit every need and budget.

Despite its small size, Windermere is a community with real history. Beginning in 1883, Windermere was home to European settlers who came to farm, raise cattle or pan for gold. As time progressed, Windermere became a hub for the logging industry. There are still many historical buildings remaining around Windermere that tell the story of the community’s first settlers.

Today, Windermere is a popular vacation destination, as well as an attraction for those who are interested in its rich history. There are many stunning natural areas, including Lake Windermere, the Rocky Mountains and the Purcell Mountains.

Many Windermere residents are “part time” occupants, building getaway homes on the shores of Lake Windermere. There’s lots to do in Windermere, including hang gliding, boating, swimming, hiking and fishing. There is access to several excellent golf courses just a short drive away. Windermere also boasts stunning views of the Rocky Mountains. The Windermere annual Fall Fair and Scarecrow Festival also draws visitors from all over. In the surrounding Columbia Valley, there are many historical landmarks, luxurious getaways, and activities that provide fun for the whole family.

Since so many Windermere residents only make the village their home for part of the year, there is a high demand for storage space. At our Real Storage Windermere location, you can rest assured that your seasonal items, or anything else you need to store, will be kept secure and in great condition all year round.

We offer a range of storage unit sizes, from our smallest (5x5, $99/month) to our largest (10x30, $309/month). We also offer covered outside parking.

British Columbia tends to have damp winters, so we offer climate-controlled storage units to protect your valuable items from any damage due to dampness, humidity or extreme temperature. If you are storing any of the items listed below, you will require climate control to keep them in the best possible condition:

  • Electronics and appliances
  • Clothing and textiles
  • Books and documents
  • Furniture
  • Antiques, collectibles and memorabilia.

Since many Windermere residents leave storage with us for long periods of time, we also offer excellent security features, including:

  • Content protection
  • Secure keypad access
  • Video monitoring.

Many Windermere residents make the most of the summer by exploring the country in an RV or exploring the waters on a boat. We offer boat and RV parking to safely store your vehicles over the winter months. For smaller vehicles we have covered outdoor parking.

For added convenience, we offer drive-up storage, packing supplies and a Purolator depot. We are pleased to offer Windermere residents excellent service, selection, value and quality. For more information about our Windermere storage units, please don’t hesitate to contact us today.

Windermere Reviews

“The staff person was very perfunctory and unhelpful. I had a large box and she would not get off her chair to hold it for me, Said in the same perfunctory tone "got a way bill", answer "no I do not". "Over there". "Where?" "On the desk". She could not or would not get off her chair and help and when it came to asking for tape to attach an envelope. Finally gave me a packing slip envelope. Very rude and not at all friendly or helpful. For myself, I am 72 years of age and thought with a heavy carton she may lend some assistance. Next time..........Canada Post. Why do I want to subject myself to that kind of treatment for which I am certain you will give me the prescribed "we are so sorry" pitch ”
