The property offers over 21 acres, most of which is untouched and developable. The resort features 10 log cabins, quaint and cozy and with beautiful views of the lake and surrounding area. The sellers have meticulously cleaned and maintained the cabins to ensure a seamless transition to new ownership. Each roof was also recently replaced, and will last now for many years to come. In addition to the cabins, the site also offers 30 RV sites, each of which have water and electricity, and access to a Sani-dump. Each site also has a picnic table and space to enjoy a warm fire and a cold beverage.
The owners residence is a mobile residence with 2 bedrooms, and all the space one needs to live, work and play in the beautiful Loon Lake country. The oversized deck, with metal overhang, ensures that no mater what the weather calls for you can enjoy the incredible views with family and friends. There is also a general store/office adjacent to the residence for check-ins, and the sale of small goods and knick knacks.
For those looking to fish, Loon Lake is a renowned fishing lake, and the property comes equipped with its own boat launch and numerous docks for ease of access. The lake itself is approximately 215 feet at its deepest, and dense stands of coniferous forest mixed with small stands of deciduous growth with some rock outcroppings comprise the immediate shoreline surrounding the south shore. Loon Lake supports an excellent rainbow fishery up to 1.5 kg and provides plenty of fast action and lots of it! There is ample freshwater shrimp, dragon fly, nymphs, chironomid and may flies which make this a good fly fishing lake as well; however, trolling with flatfish and spinning lures are the most popular methods used here.
Additional recreational activities include; boating, kayaking, canoeing, jet skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country, ice fishing, ATVing, hunting, mountain biking, etc.

Real Estate/Development Market BriefReal estate and development on and around Loon Lake has experienced well managed growth over the past few years with an overall shortage of supply of developable land for either fee simple lots or strata ownership RV sites/basic cabins. At present there are several rental options for cabins and RVs, but site ownership virtually not available.
Over the past few years there have been more and more upper end homes being constructed on the lake and a few subdivisions of existing property to create smaller 1 acre parcels with high end homes, in an essence more money has been visible around the lake in both the residents and visitors—evident in the growing number of high end boats visiting the resort.
The majority of purchasers over the past 5 years have been from the Lower Mainland with an emphasis in the Fraser Valley. The second most popular location has been Kamloops with the purpose of the transaction being mainly for a second home/recreational property followed by a number of retirees locating to the area permanently.
