About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Spectacular views from our comfortable waterfront home on beautiful Sproat Lake just ten minutes west of Port Alberni on Vancouver Island! Relax in this spacious home with private wharf and mountain views.

Crystal clear fresh mountain water just perfect for boating, swimming, and water skiing. Near the World Famous Martin Mars water bombers and enroute to Tofino, Long Beach and Pacific Rim National Park.

Surrounded by trees and gardens, the property enjoys stunning views of Sproat Lake and Mount Arrowsmith. An extensive lawn leads to 100 feet of private pebble/sandy beach. The dock with mooring provides water access for swimming, boating, water skiing or sunbathing. Every day about 4pm the wind comes up to cool down the sand and is perfect for windsurfing.

Our lake home is warm and rustic, with lots of space for families. With 2600 square feet, the main floor has three bedrooms with two queen-size beds and a kids' room with bunk beds and a fully-equipped kitchen and living area. The deck spans the main floor, and offers terrific views of the lake from the umbrella-covered table and chairs, near the barbeque. The lower level has a walkout to the grass area, with twin beds in the bedroom and separate two piece bathroom and guest laundry. Everything you might need for a week at the lake is included, such as kids' toys, movies, books, as well as beach towels, deck furniture, outdoor toys, barbeque and kayak.

There is a binder of local information provided in our home to make your stay more enjoyable and experience some of the great natural outdoors the Alberni Valley has to offer.

Why Lisa chose British Columbia

I grew up living at Sproat Lake every summer, and thought it would be a great place for others to experience summertime on the water. So much of Sproat Lake is in the perfectly clear water, the calm mornings, the Canada geese and loons that swim by, and the view of the surrounding snow-covered mountains.

What makes this house unique

Crystal clear mountain-fed lake offers tremendous opportunities to enjoy the great BC scenery. Fishing, waterskiing, kayaking and swimming of course, are a great way to spend your summer!

Sproat lake awesomeness!

  • 5 of 5

another great stay up at this lake, easily the warmest and cleanest lake you'll ever find. Great house to stay at, with an awesome yard and a great deck for hanging out on, it's got everything you'd ever want without being pretentious or stuffy. It's comfy, just the way you want to be at the lake, yet it's still a huge piece of property that gives you lots of privacy and the best beach around ( no weeds and the kids can walk all the way to the dock ladder, so you don't have to be a helicopter parent all day). Great times, highly recommended

Just spent 7 days enjoying the best vacation in a long time with our 2 dogs. Location is awesome with swimming and kayaking at your door and lots of walking trails on the other side of the road. Perfect weather was a bonus. The house has everything you need and was well stocked. Hope to do it again next year 😊

Just to let readers know that all these reviews are spot on!

We've had 4 heavenly peaceful visits to this "home" at the lake.

Thanks to the (efficient, friendly) owners for making this lake house available and for great memories.

Great Times on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome house to have on the lake for the week! Especially for families, with the rec room full of toys upstairs to the beachfront that kids can wade in from, this was exactly what we were looking for. Great location on the sunny side of the lake too! Had all the stuff you need at a lake ( water toys, lots of towels, BBQ, huge patio) and an awesome dock to laze away the afternoons. Not to far from amenities either, if your running low on stuff. Can't wait to get back there next year!

Loved, loved, loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful location and cosy home. We loved the spacious accommodations and dealing with the owner was so easy and enjoyable. Anyone who visited us just raved about how lucky we were to have found such a fabulous place. Thanks so much Lisa for sharing your beautiful home. The private beach, amazing lake views and the outdoor fire pit were just some of the highlights that were enjoyed everyday. Even our dog had a grand time chasing the rabbits!!

What a wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

This property did more than delight - it surpasses expectations. The property is large - plenty of room for the 8 of us in house and ample parking too! It was quiet and secure (very private) and lots of places to enjoy the 'outdoors' including a protected walking trail across the street that we all thoroughly enjoyed! The description of the property reflected EXACTLY what to expect when you arrived; the web photos (albeit great on the site) can't do this property justice! It's a great stay for a family! From the 'kids loft' area to the beach towels (included in the stay); the washing machine/dryer, dishwasher and all other amenities. Great place for a "bunch" of people to hang out... and the veranda (where we spent every meal because of the view) was spectacular! So very comfortable and enjoyable! We felt the property was worth the cost of the rental fee AND we were allowed to take our two small dogs with us - they thoroughly enjoyed the stay too. We called it our "little piece of heaven on earth" while we stayed and it is SO much more.
