Nicola Lake is warm and perfect for water sports of all kinds, paved easy to use boat launch ramps are just minutes away, trailer storage is available at the house and the dock is sheltered and suitable for keeping a ski boat in the water.

Fishing in Nicola Lake is world class for Rainbow Trout and more, just head to the end of the dock! There are a number of outfitters in Merritt that can point you in the right direction if you want to try more remote high country lakes.

The pool is heated in the summer months and has a secure automated cover to give you peace of mind with smaller children. Key operation prevents opening without you.

Beautiful, Relaxing, Retreat for friends and family on Nicola Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay and enjoyed spending time with friends and family who all met in here (from the Lower Mainland & the Interior). The house is perfectly set up for 3+ couples and kids. The main living space & wood burning fire place was a great space for everyone to come together, share meals and enjoy the view! Don't forget your fishing rods!!!

The home is absolutely incredible. It is better in real life than in the photos! A perfect meeting spot between Vancouver and Kelowna, it has the peace and serenity of a cabin with the luxuries of a 5 star home. You can cook incredible meals in the fully equipped kitchen, relax outside and lounge in the pool. Situated lakeside, it has something for everyone. If you're looking for the "wow factor" without the 10 pm noise restrictions of Whistler or the Sunshine Coast, this place is for you!
