Overview

Photos and Description of the Sproat Lake vacation house rental

Spacious 2 bedroom garden suite with lakefront dock

Large 2 BR suite in house on Sproat Lake, with waterfront dock and boat mooring for summer fun. Sproat Lake is a large, deep clean lake that warms up nicely in the summer. The lake has 4 arms, 2 of which are largely uninhabited, but accessible by boat. The suite has a big covered patio adjoining a huge garden, with a view of the lake and access to the lake. There is always shade somewhere on the hot days of summer and the suite stays naturally cool in the extreme heat we usually experience here in July and August. Full kitchen and bath, as well as separate shower room and laundry facilities. Furnished, including BBQ, kitchen utensils, bed linens and bath towels. Fiber optic wi-fi. Free use of a canoe and two lake kayaks.

-- 2 bedrooms, each with a queen bed, a queen hide-a-bed couch in the living room and a 3/4 fold-down bed/couch in kitchen. Max occupancy: 6.

-- Located near the famous Mars Water Bombers and Sproat Lake Provincial Park. Glider flights at the nearby local airport.

-- Perfect for day trips to Tofino, Ucluelet and Long Beach, Mount Arrowsmith and Bamfield.

-- Bring your boat and water ski, or just relax on the lake!

--Suite is fully equipped and self-contained on lower, walkout-level of two-storey house. Hosts are upstairs. There is about a 3 minute walk through the long narrow property to the lakeside. Golf cart available for heavy loads and those with difficulty walking.

- RATES: Please check the rates tab for accurate rates in Canadian dollars. The front page often displays rates in US dollars and/or averages the rates from the high and low seasons, creating misleading estimates.

--WINTER: If you're thinking of a winter rental, the situation is different. The lake is too cold for swimming without a wet suit, although you can often still canoe. The winter months are especially suitable for retreat activities, for example, writing, reflection, meditation, etc, where you can take advantage of quiet and isolation. At that time of year, you might enjoy side trips to the outer coast (Tofino, etc) to see the sights of 'the storm season' or to Mount Washington to ski, snowshoe or snow board.

In Port Alberni, there is a historical sawmill and a steam train as well as a museum, art gallery, native art and historical sites. At Stamp Falls you can see spectacular salmon runs if the timing is right. There are glider flights and a Mars water bomber museum. Port Alberni is a big salmon fishing center, both for both commercial and sports fisheries.

We are just over an hour's drive from Tofino and Ucluelet on the West Coast of Vancouver Island where you can go whale watching, surfing, ocean fishing and kayaking. An hour in the other direction takes you to Horne Lake caves for spectacular spelunking adventures. There is lots of hiking and mountain biking territory.
