    Description

    ONLY CASH OFFERS WILL BE CONSIDERED

    Canim Lake Resort is one of the premier resort properties in the interior of British Columba. With countless glowing reviews and repeat guests, this oasis is a wonderful opportunity for an experienced resort owner or someone looking for a new challenge. The owners of Canim Lake Resort have poured their hearts into the property, and have meticulously planned and designed the resort to be a unforgettable experience for guests, but also an easy to run operation for a new owner.

    The property itself is a dream come true and offers 25 acres along the southerly banks of Canim Lake. Both picturesque and functional from an activity/accommodation perspective, it truly is a rare opportunity and a unique offering. The 25 acres are divided by Canim Lake Road, with the southerly portion backing onto Crown land with and zoned RR1 allowing for residential usage, and even potential subdivision. The northerly portion that shares a border with the lake is roughly 12 acres, zoned C2 (tourist commercial) and is ground zero for some of BC’s best fishing. Numerous other surrounding lakes also offer a varying degree of fishing difficulty making the region suitable for all levels of experience.

    The size of the property should allow for further development, and addition of revenue generating components such as recreational activities and RV sites/cabins. If you have the vision the property is a canvas for endless potential. Bring your entrepreneurial spirit, and new ideas and continue to grow what could be a world class resort.

    History

    The history of Canim Lake Resort is as rich as the land it resides on. Canim Lake Resort was established in 1930, by David Newall. Originally it was a hunting and fishing camp, created as a home base to access some of the best food resources in the province. The Newall version of Canim Lake Resort was not the comforting vision that stands today.

    Newell’s lodge was lost to a fire, but the memories live on in photographs. While uncovering these historical documents, rumours surfaced that this was a vacationing spot for the late President Hoover, which is why an area (Hoover Bay) has been named after him.

    The office and main house is an architectural beauty with rustic charm, and was added on by a woodworking teacher who built it himself. The resort was purchased by husband and wife team in 1990, where it began the journey to become what you recognize today. The Lodge, the heart of the resort, was build in 1993.
