Hathaway Lake Resort is a long standing resort business with many repeat customers. This resort is offered turnkey with all the equipment, and supplies to start earning money upon possession. There is opportunity to continue operations as is, or expand into other income streams. Presently the resort is heavily used by anglers, hunters and summer vacationers. There is opportunity to expand the operating seasons to accommodate ice fishermen and snowmobiling.

    The resort occupies 3.73 acres of land and 500 ft of lakefront shoreline. The main lodge comes complete with a storefront, and operator's quarters. The store offers confectionery, snacks and fishing equipment. There is a bonus suite on the main level off the storefront for additional accommodation. The operator's quarters features two bedrooms, full bathroom, kitchen and living room. Off the lodge is hot tub and private veranda.

    Throughout the property there are 7 guest cabins each possessing beds, wood stoves, electricity, and cooking stoves. All of the cabins offer excellent views out over the lake. The cabins are rustic, but cozy. The cabins have private porches providing shade and spectacular views.

    There are also 6 RV sites complete with water and electrical hookups. A sani station is also available for RV guests. There is plenty of camping and picnic space available as well.

    A playground and picnicking area complete the resort. These are the perfect areas to sit relax and allow kids to run and play under the warm summer sun.

    The resort sits at the end of a very quiet road. The forest service road commences shortly after the resort and thus, there is very little traffic.

    Area Data

    The Interlakes, also known as the Interlakes District, is a geographic region of the Interior of British Columbia, located along and around the Interlakes Highway between 100 Mile House on BC Highway 97 and Little Fort on the North Thompson River. The area is a sub region of the Cariboo and includes the communities of Bridge Lake and Lac des Roches.

    Highway 24 is commonly referred to as the fishing highway and it is deserving of this title. Some of the best inland fishing in all of British Columbia is available to anglers on the many bodies of water dotting the landscape. There are literally hundreds of fish bearing lakes throughout the district.

    Recreation

    Fishing

    Hathaway Lake is a calm 5 km long lake with good fishing for rainbow trout and lake trout. Rainbows average 2 1/2 lbs. Lake trout are typically 3-5 lbs. Trolling, spin casting and fly fishing are all effective, but fly fishing is usually best in the early months of May and June. Lake is stocked annually with 17,500 rainbow yearlings—blackwater strain. Angler usage is low.

    There are no motor restrictions and there is an easy access boat launch on the property.

    This area is known for some of the best small lake fishing in British Columbia so there are countless other lakes to fish or explore within an hour’s drive of the resort. Some are walk-in lakes and great for float tubes and fly fishing.

    The resort rents aluminum boats with motors, or you can bring your own. Dock space is available.

    Wildlife Viewing and Bird Watching

    The wildlife love the property, be prepared to see deer, moose, foxes, snowshoe hares, marmots, squirrels, beaver and otters. Birds include woodpeckers, bald eagles, great blue herons, owls including the great horned owl, hummingbirds, loons and many varieties of ducks. If you’re lucky you might see a mother mallard leading her baby ducklings in a line down to the lake or baby foxes playing amongst the trees. Wake up and see curious deer right outside your RV, maybe even with a baby fawn. Keep your camera handy!

    Paddling

    Have you tried kayaking yet? The resort has four single sit-on top kayaks available for rent. Their design makes them easy to get on and off and they are quite safe. You will be surprised at how easy it is. If you’re really ambitious, just go out of the driveway to access Sulphurous Lake which is a beautiful clean, clear lake with an island and bays to explore. From Sulphurous Lake there is a short portage to Deka Lake. Also great for stand-up paddle boarders. The resort also has a canoe for rent for those who prefer to double in the same watercraft. Prefer a leg workout? Have fun in a rental pedal boat. The kids and grandkids will love it, if you share it with them.

    Cammin Falls

    Canim Falls (40 km north of resort on good gravel road) has spectacular steep canyon walls composed of columnar lava rock. A short 1 km walk will bring you to 15 metre high Mahood Falls. Continue on the trail to view the 20 metre high Canim Falls—actually two falls split by a midstream island.

    Deception Falls

    Continue east from Canim Falls to the Wells Gray Provincial Park to access Deception Falls. About a 30-minute walk through a beautiful aspen forest. Perfect hike in the fall when the leaves are golden. If it’s a hot day, stop at Mahood Lake Provincial Park for a picnic or a swim.

    Lone Butte

    (approx. 30-minute drive)

    Climb to the top of Lone Butte which is actually a volcanic plug about 76 metres (250 feet) high for a great view of the whole area. The wooden water tower at Lone Butte is one of the last remnants from the days of steam trains. While you’re in Lone Butte, stop for lunch at one of the cafes.

    100 Mile House

    (40 km drive on paved road)

    Follow the scenic Horse Lake Road into 100 Mile House. When in 100 Mile House, stroll down Birch Avenue. Even though it is a small town, there are some unique shops. The Farmers Market takes place on Birch Avenue every week in summer. One of the few remaining Barnard Express stage coaches can be seen on display outside the Red Coach Inn on Highway 97 at the north end of town. You can also visit the Parkside Art Gallery and the Stone Bear Art Gallery to view some beautiful local art.
