Arne is an expert and advisor in sustainable transportation and an amazing musician. Ann is a semi-retired school teacher, who now works supporting home learners, when she is not expanding the garden.

Ann Taylor purchased this house in 1992

We've owned riverfront and ocean front and realized that lake front is the most friendly and usable form of waterfront. Sproat Lake is the best lake on Vancouver Island for cleanliness and temperature and we enjoyed 15 summers here with our children before making the shift to live here full time.

The huge attraction in the summer is the spectacular lake and all its pleasures. We also have a large garden with nooks in which to read, meditate, sip wine or commune with nature. In the early morning you may hear loons calling. You can also enjoy the local nature and historical sites and the considerable range of other wilderness and adventure destinations both east and west of us on Vancouver Island.

Our family spent a week at this lakefront vacation rental spot and it exceeded our expectations. This was our 3rd year of staying on the lake and we loved this location. The rental suite was spacious, clean and had every amenity we could ever need. The owners were extremely accommodating and it felt like we were staying with family. We had beautiful weather and took full advantage of the dock at the lake to swim and float around to cool off. We enjoyed dining outside under a covered deck to take in the beautiful views of the lake and the amazing gardens on the property. We were also able to moor our boat at the dock and had access to a golf cart to transport our equipment and heavier items. We thoroughly enjoyed our week and only wish it had been longer!

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.

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.
