Port Alberni House Rental Photos and Description

House and Cottage -total 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

PLEASE NOTE:

Reservations for Summer 2015 will start around the end of January 2015. If you wish to book with us, please contact us at that time. Thank you!

Arbutus Retreats is a private, south facing lakefront 2 bedroom home and 1 bedroom cottage on one acre of property on beautiful Sproat Lake in Port Alberni.

The entire property will accommodate up to 9 people. The house sleeps 5 people - with one king, one queen pullout and one bunk with single bed on top, double on the bottom. The cottage accommodates up to 4 people with one queen, one double pullout and one futon convertible 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 can sit with the whole family without bumping elbows. Have young children? Easy entry into the warm lake with the built in stairs. Any size boat will moor comfortably in the boat slip under the new boat cover for the duration of your stay. Stay cool under the shade sails, or work on your tan on another part of the dock.

These two dwellings are situated on a level acreage of property, with 110 ft. of pebble beach. You are about 30 steps from the house 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 while the house stays cool nestled in the shade of the giant fir trees.

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 and water falls.

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 kitchens, mix up some margaritas in the blender and cook up a storm on the barbecues provided with each unit. The house is one level - walk out the lake door and enjoy dinner on the patio right at the lake front. Stroll down to the dock and watch the sunset.

Please note that pets cannot be accommodated at this property - no exceptions.

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

About Patty Shepherd

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.

Patty Shepherd purchased this house in 2004

Why Patty Shepherd chose Port Alberni

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Harmony

  • 5 of 5
There is such a peace and tranquility that sweeps over the lake on a warm summer's morning. That feeling consumes the body and soul as one sits with a cup of tea in hand and looks out at a mirrored reflection of them self. The eyes feast upon a view of the lake second to none. The fabulous dock provides the foundation for all the wonderful day's activities.... swimming, boating, settling in with a good book, building a glorious golden tan and enjoying a cool cocktail on a hot day. House and cottage provide for all your needs and added entertainment options. So much to do, so little time....extended stay a definite must....next year, and year after, and year after. Yes, this is a definite do over :)

Lake Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Our get away to the lake was a ton of fun. The kids especially enjoyed the lake, us parents enjoyed spending time relaxing on the dock, watching the children play, go for a quick dip into the lake.

The cabin offers everything you need, including lots of games, movies etc. The children even "learned" how to play the "pool" game!

We would definitely recommend this cabin to our European friends and all our family and friends here on the Island. Hopefully we can come back soon again!

The owners are very helpful and respond to emails right away! Thank you!

Lovely family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely time in these well equipped cottages in a beautiful, serene area of Sproat Lake. Our time here was thoroughly enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Swimming, canoeing, kayaking and lovely BBQ dinners - it was all wonderfully relaxing. We definitely hope to return soon!

What a beautiful location! Peaceful beautiful property with all the amenities you need for a wonderful get away. We used both the cottage and the house, were both fully stocked and just ready to enjoy. Sitting on that dock during sunset was breath taking. Highly recommend this rental property and we will surely be back next year!

Lovely Sproat Lake Rental

  • 5 of 5
Arbutus Retreats is a lovely vacation rental on Sproat Lake. This has been our third visit to the property.. Our family of four stayed in the cottage while our extended family members stayed in the house. The cottage and house are clean and comfortable, lots of sleeping room, and both are well stocked with everything you need while away from home, including a washer and dryer!

The lake itself is calm, clean, and quiet. Our children have spent much time swimming, jumping off the dock, and frolicking on floaties. The dock, with it's stunning view of a mountain covered with dense forest, is a perfect place to pass the time: reading, swimming, watching the spectacular sunsets, star gazing at night, and simply enjoying the moment. There are plenty of other activities also, like canoeing or kayaking, both are provided with the rental. One day we paddled across the lake and hiked along a trail - a fun family adventure. And there's been lots of family fun with games of pool and foosball in the house. Port Alberni is close by, a short drive for shops and restaurants. Arbutus Retreats is a very special and perfect getaway. We'll be back again on our next visit to Vancouver Island!

Sproat Lake excellent time

  • 5 of 5
Testimonial Brillon Braid Group
Our family had the privilege of renting Patty Shepherd vacation home on Sproat Lake July 8 to 15 2012, and we had an amazing time! The two homes situated on the lake were very well appointed with everything one would need to make an excellent vacation. Between the Pool Table, Fooseball Table and board games we had countless hours of great entertainment. We plan on making this an annual vacation rental for our family. I highly recommend this vacation home to any who is looking for a great vacation. ( We broke the funometor )
