SPROAT LAKE WATERFRONT - AMAZING VIEWS / BEAUTIFUL BEACH!

Port Alberni Cottage Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Only 15 minutes from Port Alberni and one hour from Long Beach, this beautiful Lake House is situated on 1.28 acres of secluded hilltop property and boasts the nicest view around.

This private 5 bedroom/2.5 bath vacation home on Sproat Lake, just over an hour from Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, offers the perfect escape that will accommodate every need of your memorable vacation experience.

Whether it be a romantic getaway for two or summer fun with family, wonderful memories will be made here. Spend your days basking in the sun on the dock, water-ski, fish, cruise the lake, visit the famous Mars Waterbombers, travel to beautiful Long Beach for a daytrip, hike Mt. Arrowsmith, or sit back and read a relaxing novel in the cool shade of the fully mature coniferous trees on the beach. Whatever you want your vacation to be, you can have it here!

The private beach access includes 90' of pebbled waterfront, a large swimming area, wharfs and a boat house. The lake house is a 2500 square foot home of unique craftsmanship. There is lots of room to socialize including a 400' deck with spectacular views of the lake and Mt. Arrowsmith. Affectionately coined "Ruttan's Roost" by our late father, architect and designer, the lake house is a unique design which is bound to impress (i.e., no where else can you find a tree for stairs)!

Once your there, it will feel like home.

About The Owner

Dale and Angela Ruttan are co-owners with Mark and Carol Ruttan.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why The Owner chose Port Alberni

The Ruttan's Lake House property has been in the family for decades. The home is a unique custom built home that has been added to and improved over the years. It has warmth and character and will make you feel completely at home.

What makes this cottage unique

This vacation rental is great any time of year. Not only are the summers incredible with the swimming and water sports but the fall, winter and spring are beautiful with their colours and unique weather patterns. Curling up by the wood stove in the winter, drinking hot cocoa and watching a DVD, is as inviting as lying in the hammock on the beach in the heat of the summer. The home is very private and quiet. Canoe rides in the morning with the Loons calling can't be beat!

I'm always suspicious when a review is too good. It could be written by the owner or agent.

But I am not the owner or agent - just an over 60 year old woman with three kids and five grandkids three generations all had the wonderful experience of staying in the Lake House.

It's a charming place that is full of character and interesting details. Everything you need is there - from games, to water toys, videos and DVD's, to recliners for those of us that like to nap, comfortable beds, very clean - and all the cooking utensils you could want. As I love to cook and my son is a chef, that is saying a great deal.

Lots of nooks and crannies on the properties with chairs to sit and look at the view. A wonderful deck overlooking the lake and a tremendous beach with a dock and a diving board. The water is warm and the beach is sandy.

Easy to get to from Port Alberni. So many things to do at the cabin that we rushed our visits to town so we could get back (I was going to say "home again" because it feels like home and corrected myself).

Our eclectic family spent four nights there and as soon as we got home, we booked a week next summer.

One part of me wants to share this wonderful place with others - hence the review. The other part of me wants to keep it secret so we will always be able to book it.

I guess I am taking the high road.

multiple family weekend away

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was amazing. We loved the lake house. We stayed in the winter and had the fireplace going for a warm and relaxing atmosphere. We had teenagers that spent time on the water trying to catch fish (unfortunately no luck). There was enough room for three families comfortably. It was a place that felt like a home away from home. The beds were super comfortable which is always nice when you are away. Owners were easy to book with and accessible if needed. We would love to go back in the summer and enjoy the lake more. House was fully stocked so all we had to bring was our food and personal items.
We would highly recommend this house at any time of the year.

Beautiful lake front home!

We have just enjoyed another wonderful visit to the beautiful and spacious Lake House. Three generations of our family get together once a year and it's difficult to find a place that can accommodate children, adults and pets so comfortably and effortlessly. At the Lake House, there are comfortable bedrooms for all, a lovely living room with lots of seating areas and a fireplace which is well stocked with wood, a kitchen which is very well equipped, and, of course, the beautiful location overlooking Sproat Lake. Several of our family members even managed a polar bear swim off the dock. We didn't take advantage of the canoe or kayak but would love to return in warmer weather to do so. The property is very well maintained and the owners most helpful.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a fantastic stay at this property. We enjoyed the wood stove, the many bedrooms that were well appointed, and of course the beach access and swimming dock behind the boat house. Having a canoe available to do quick paddles was a highlight, as was the glorious water view deck to soak up the sun. A++, great value, I would recommend it to anyone wanting to have a large gathering in a lovely setting.

Lake house

  • 5 of 5
We had a fabulous, sunny week at the lake. The house was very clean & comfortable, lovely evenings on the deck. The beach was fantastic with both sunny and shady areas to suit everyone and lots of sun on the dock in the late afternoon. Great area for swimming, boating, paddle boarding & kayaking. The owners were so easy-going and accommodating and even found a pair of prescription glasses we'd lost under the dock during our stay and returned them to us! Thanks Dale!
