Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We purchased this beautiful property with the long term in mind, so our children and friends could build treasured lifetime memories in this setting.
Why the Owner Chose Tulameen: This well appointed and beautifully finished Chalet is in the ideal location, located close to the city of Vancouver (3.5 hours) in an area that will have limited future growth. The outdoors, the adventure of exploration, riding ATV's and snowmobiling, the amount of activities available were a huge attraction.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet: The Kettle Valley railway and Trans Canada Trail run through the area, directly across Otter Lake from our place. This is truly a four season vacation destination. The Alder has a huge Deck off the front of the Chalet that provides unparalleled views up the lake, perfect for entertaining, eating and general relaxation.
