              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: I have been providing tourist accommodation in Nanaimo for over 15 years. I very much enjoy assisting our clients with all their vacation needs and suggestions for wonderful tourist attractions.

              Why the Owner Chose Nanaimo:
              Lakeside was created, as I grew up in Ontario in a resort. We had 5 cottages and a guest house. My greatest pleasure is being able to share this cottage country like living with all newcomers and repeating guests alike. Living on a fresh water lake right in the middle of a city, is like a pocket of paradise.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This waterfront home has a dock, use of non motorized watercrafts including a paddleboat, canoe, kayaks. A lovely beach and large deck overlooking the lake to sit and relax.
