Sulphurous Lake house description

Our home is located on beautiful Sulphurous Lake in the South Cariboo region of British Columbia. Sulphurous Lake derives its name from its first discovery by explorers, who mistook the pollen on the lake as sulphur….there is also an underwater island near the southwest end of the lake that adds to this myth as it appears to be light in colour, its peak being only 18 inches below the water line. There is no sulphur in the lake just crystal clear, natural water.
Our home is situated on a half-acre south facing lot with 100’ of waterfront. It is a fully equipped family home with three bedrooms(each with a queen size bed), two bathrooms, living room, dining room and kitchen. There are also laundry facilities.
At the rear of the home, facing the lake, is our large deck complete with tables, chairs, umbrella & canopy. Directly below the deck is a large grassed and landscaped yard with a fully equipped playground for young children and a bunk house for older children. Down from there is our fire pit area leading to the dock. Access to the lake is on either side of the dock via a clear sand & pebbled bottom. The lake is shallow to about the end of the dock where it then begins to descend to deeper water.
Sulphurous is unique in that there are only homes located on the north side of the lake with all having beautiful southerly views across to untouched Crown land. Fishing is the biggest past time on the lake, however, water skiing and tubing are popular as well. Several residents have fashioned barges that they cruise the lake with, making for a very relaxing day. Early morning and late afternoon canoe trips can allow you to experience the ever present wildlife in the quieter times of the day. Kayaking and paddle boarding are also very popular. Please feel free to bring your own water sport equipment, as there is easy access from the property for all non-motorized craft. There is a boat launch located approximately one kilometer from the Lakehouse for those who wish to bring their own boats.
We are conveniently located 10 minutes from the Interlakes area where there are several stores including groceries, hardware, and a restaurant.
We rent our home out weekly, Saturday to Saturday, with some exceptions during non-peak periods. Please refer to availability and calendar below.
Please don’t hestitate to contact the owners should you have any further questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
Linda and Doug
