About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Cottage Living room, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Please note: we rent from Saturday to Saturday. 7 night minimum.

Private, south facing lakefront 1 bedroom cottage on one acre of property on beautiful Sproat Lake in Port Alberni.
The cottage sleeps 4 people – with one queen bed, one double pullout and one double convertible futon couch.

We have just renovated our dock, and as you can see from the photos, it is our central attraction! Wonderfully large and comfortable, you will be in heaven! Have young children? Easy entry into the warm lake with the built in stairs. Stay cool under the shade sails, or work on your tan on another part of the dock.

The cottage is situated on a level acreage of property, with 110 ft. of pebble beach. You are about 50 steps from the cottage to the water's edge - dip your feet into the warmest, cleanest lake on Vancouver Island. You will enjoy summer sunshine on the dock from 8 in the morning until 9 at night.

If boating is your thing, bring your power boat and enjoy the skiing, tubing, and wake boarding - the large lake (93,000 hectares) offers so much room for enjoying water sports. Or just cruise around the lake and stop to see the hieroglyphics.

Take advantage of the double kayak, single kayak and canoe provided with your rental, and paddle across the lake to visit Fossli Provincial Park - a beautiful short hike up to a suspension bridge.

You are situated among some of the most spectacular sightseeing destinations in the world: Vancouver Island's west coast, with Tofino, Ucluelet and Pacific Rim National Park just 1.5 hours drive away. Or visit the world famous Cathedral Grove in MacMillan Park - only 1/2 an hour from your home.

At the end of the day, take advantage of the fully stocked kitchen, mix up some margaritas in the blender and cook up a storm on the barbecue provided.

Please note that pets cannot be accommodated at this property - no exceptions. Owners may be vacationing in the house also situated on the same property.
Due to the prevalence of allergies, we ask guests to refrain from using perfumes or colognes. Thank you for observing this!

Before making any payments, please contact owner at 250.478.7117 or 250.812.8436 Pacific Time.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband and I bought this property as an investment in 2004, but soon fell in love with it, and abandoned all plans to resell. We spend our yearly vacation at the lake, and as such, have made it as comfortable as our own home. We love the family oriented look and feel, and fit right in with the neighbouring families who live full time on the lake.

Why the Owner Chose Sproat Lake, BC, Canada:
This lake is the secret gem of Vancouver Island. While other lakes are being overdeveloped, and becoming extremely crowed for water sports, Sproat Lake's size makes it fantastic for the water enthusiast. The beautiful country roads and lovely trails across the street make morning walks a must.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The water is warm and crystal clear. The property is flanked by trees on either side, making your stay private. You are away from the noisy campgrounds, and tucked into a bay that creates a feeling of security. Your neighbours are full time residents that have great respect for the lake and all it has to offer.
