You sent a message to this owner.
- Minimum stay:1-7 nights
- Pets considered:No
- Wheel chair accessible:N/A
Large 2 BR suite in house on Sproat Lake, with waterfront dock and boat mooring for summer fun. Big covered patio and huge garden with view of the lake. There is always shade somewhere on the hot days of summer and the suite stays naturally cool in the extreme heat we usually experience here in July and August. Full kitchen and bath, as well as separate shower room and laundry facilities. Furnished, including BBQ, kitchen utensils, bed linens and bath towels. Fiber optic wi-fi. Free use of a canoe.
-- 2 bedrooms, each with a queen bed, a queen hide-a-bed couch in the living room and a bed/couch in kitchen. Max occupancy: 6.
-- Located near the famous Mars Water Bombers and Sproat Lake Provincial Park. Glider flights at the nearby local airport.
-- Perfect for day trips to Tofino, Ucluelet and Long Beach, Mount Arrowsmith and Bamfield.
-- Bring your boat and water ski, or just relax on the lake!
--Suite is fully equipped and self-contained on lower, walkout-level of two-storey house. Hosts are upstairs. There is about a 3 minute walk through the long narrow property to the lakeside. Golf cart available for heavy loads and those with difficulty walking.
--WINTER: If you're thinking of a winter rental, the situation is different. The lake is too cold for swimming without a wet suit, although you can often still canoe. The winter months are especially suitable for retreat activities, for example, writing, reflection, meditation, etc, where you can take advantage of quiet and isolation. At that time of year, you might enjoy side trips to the outer coast (Tofino, etc) to see the sights of 'the storm season' or to Mount Washington to ski, snowshoe or snow board.

In Port Alberni, there is a historical sawmill and a steam train as well as a museum, art gallery, native art and historical sites. At Stamp Falls you can see spectacular salmon runs if the timing is right. There are glider flights and a Mars water bomber museum. Port Alberni is a big salmon fishing center, both for both commercial and sports fisheries.
We are just over an hour's drive from Tofino and Ucluelet on the West Coast of Vancouver Island where you can go whale watching, surfing, ocean fishing and kayaking. An hour in the other direction takes you to Horne Lake caves for spectacular spelunking adventures. There is lots of hiking and mountain biking territory.

About the owner: Arne is an expert and advisor in sustainable transportation and an amazing musician. Ann is a semi-retired school teacher, who now works supporting home learners, when she is not expanding the garden.
Why the Owner Chose Sproat Lake:
We've owned riverfront and ocean front and realized that lake front is the most friendly and usable form of waterfront. Sproat Lake is the best lake on Vancouver Island for cleanliness and temperature and we enjoyed 15 summers here with our children before making the shift to live here full time. The summers here tend to be exceptionally hot for Vancouver Island, so it's a wonderful place to spend time by the lake. The lake itself is beautifully warm and clean. We have a deep water swimming area protected by a log boom.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The huge attraction in the summer is the spectacular lake and all its pleasures. We also have a large garden with nooks in which to read, meditate, sip wine or commune with nature. In the early morning you may hear loons calling. You can also enjoy the local nature and historical sites and the considerable range of other wilderness and adventure destinations both east and west of us on Vancouver Island.
