Property description

Only 15 minutes from Port Alberni and one hour from Long Beach, this beautiful Lake House is situated on 1.28 acres of secluded hilltop property and boasts the nicest view around.

This private 5 bedroom/2.5 bath vacation home on Sproat Lake, just over an hour from Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, offers the perfect escape that will accommodate every need of your memorable vacation experience.

Whether it be a romantic getaway for two or summer fun with family, wonderful memories will be made here. Spend your days basking in the sun on the dock, water-ski, fish, cruise the lake, visit the famous Mars Waterbombers, travel to beautiful Long Beach for a daytrip, hike Mt. Arrowsmith, or sit back and read a relaxing novel in the cool shade of the fully mature coniferous trees on the beach. Whatever you want your vacation to be, you can have it here!

The private beach access includes 90' of pebbled waterfront, a large swimming area, wharfs and a boat house. The lake house is a 2500 square foot home of unique craftsmanship. There is lots of room to socialize including a 400' deck with spectacular views of the lake and Mt. Arrowsmith. Affectionately coined "Ruttan's Roost" by our late father, architect and designer, the lake house is a unique design which is bound to impress (i.e., no where else can you find a tree for stairs)!

Once your there, it will feel like home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Dale and Angela Ruttan are co-owners with Mark and Carol Ruttan.

Why the Owner Chose Port Alberni:
The Ruttan's Lake House property has been in the family for decades. The home is a unique custom built home that has been added to and improved over the years. It has warmth and character and will make you feel completely at home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This vacation rental is great any time of year. Not only are the summers incredible with the swimming and water sports but the fall, winter and spring are beautiful with their colours and unique weather patterns. Curling up by the wood stove in the winter, drinking hot cocoa and watching a DVD, is as inviting as lying in the hammock on the beach in the heat of the summer. The home is very private and quiet. Canoe rides in the morning with the Loons calling can't be beat!
