Property description

'Nature and History Abound, while Adventure Awaits' Located in the picturesque Otter Valley, the town of Tulameen and Otter Lake itself serve as the backdrop for The Alder. Only 3.5 hours from Vancouver.

Our Chalet style Lake Home is a beautiful getaway to escape the everyday. Floor to peaked ceilings houses an impressive 21 foot window wall with an amazing view of our private sandy beachfront and our well appointed dock, all framed by the length of Otter Lake and the surrounding hills.

Standing on the North West shore of Otter Lake just through the town of Tulameen, The Alder is outfitted with everything you could think of and more. Our Lake Home is well provisioned, well maintained, spacious, clean, offers ample parking, with an impressively large and inviting deck. Our Chalet sleeps a maximum of twelve in four bedrooms and loft accommodations complete with three full bathrooms. If you’re looking for the perfect location for your year round holidays or for that weekend get a way, well you have found it.

From tranquil to full on adventure, there is something for everyone at The Alder at Otter Lake.

Tulameen and Otter Lake are located at some 2700 feet above sea level and nestled in the Eastern side of the Coastal Mountain range, just 23km North West of Princeton and some 70km South of Merritt in the Southern Okanagan - Similkameen region of British Columbia.

Getting to the Alder is easy. From Vancouver take the Trans Canada Hi-way to Hope and from Hope, take the No.3 Highway, the Crow's Nest, through scenic Manning Park to Princeton. Once into Princeton, follow Bridge Street through town and across the river on the old one-way wooden bridge. Turn left and follow the signs to Tulameen. The town of Tulameen is located some 25 minutes from Princeton. Make sure you turn right at the stop sign at Coalmont and drive past the old Coalmont Hotel. Once you come to the Tulameen General Store, stay on the main road going north through town then left along the west side of the lake.

Owner info

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.
