Located on a private lake exactly half way between Courtenay and Campbell River, the Robinson Lake Retreat is perfectly situated for exploring the Comox Valley, Campbell River, Mount Washington, Strathcona Park, and the nearby ocean side beaches. The large waterfront house sits on an acre of trees and looks directly out across the lake and Mount Washington. Robinson Lake is perfect for swimming, canoeing, and sailing. No motorboats are permitted to keep the water clean and the area peaceful! Nature is on full display with a dizzying array of birds, as well as the trout and turtles that call Robinson Lake home. The Robinson Lake Retreat, is a custom built wood dominated, fun, funky and laid back House in the woods. The main living room, dining room, kitchen/second dining room, and all four bedrooms, all look out at the lakefront and nearby Mount Washington. The viewpoints are bright and beautiful from almost everywhere in the house. Only the fully equipped home theater living room faces away from the lake, sun and mountains and it is nestled into the comfortable shade of the towering firs and alders. Watching hundreds of satellite channels or some DVDs on a large 55 inch HD TV with surround sound can take you away from all of the nature should you desire it! High speed wireless internet is available throughout the house and property. The lakeside stereo living room comes complete with an audiophile sound system and a large selection of records and CDs. There is a pool table in the shade of the trees! The large master bedroom features an incredible French king size bed, and a couch and fireplace that opens onto a large balcony that looks out upon the lake. There is a large ensuite bathroom featuring a jetted jacuzzi tub as well as a separate shower. There are three other bedrooms with two queen size beds and a double bed. If necessary the living room couches can accommodate 3 more people. The other two guest bathrooms feature a shower on the lower floor, and a shower/tub combo upstairs. Outdoors you can swim around Robinson Lake and be amazed at the bird life and natural beauty. The beach area features a fire pit for campfires anytime of the day. A canoe, paddle boat, and an assortment of floating chairs and mattresses are provided. A full BBQ and outdoor dining table is there for your use and enjoyment. The nearby Comox Valley has been named The Recreational Capitol of Canada for good reason. The abundance of fantastic beaches, lakes, mountains, forests, and numerous golf courses make it a community with an unlimited potential for nature excursions. The sandy beaches of Saratoga and Miracle Beach are just 5 minutes away! Nearby Mount Washington generally gets more snow than most ski hills in North America and is well regarded as one of Canada's best alpine resorts. The towns of Courtenay, Comox, and Cumberland, all 20 minutes south, all possess plenty of character boutique shopping, and a truly impressive choice of dining. Campbell River, just 20 minutes north, is world famous for its fishing, and is the gateway to Strathcona Park and a fabulous scenic and fun drive to Gold River and beyond. You can also take a ferry to Quadra and Cortez Islands from Campbell River for even more west coast options. The Robinson Lake Retreat is an hour and a half from Nanaimo Departure Bay ferry terminal.
