    First time available for sale! The Tachick Lake Estates is a beautiful lakefront acreage located on pristine Tachick Lake. These three lots are located on a fisherman’s paradise in the middle of some of the best farming and ranching country in British Columbia.

    Located in Central British Columbia, off Kenny Dam and Tachick Lake Roads, Tachick Lake is very private with only a few others owning property on the lake. However, all services are located only a 15 minute drive on paved and gravel roads in the community of Vanderhoof.

    Generally, the property is flat and level on top and slopes gently down to the lake. Approximately 300 acres has been cultivated into new fields and has produced crops of alfalfa. Most of the remaining property is cleared and these fields are used for grazing. In the fall the fields are covered in geese and ducks during the migration south.

    These parcels are available separately, or all three properties can be purchased together for $995,000.

    Lot A - $295,000
    • Size: 133.6 acres
    • Lakefront: 1,701 ft (518.6 m)
    • Cleared (approx.): 29.7 acres

    An excellent location for a ranch or farm! Picture your new home sitting on a bluff in the centre of the property overlooking a small pond on the property. This potential building site offers a very private setting and great view of the lake.

    In the summer and fall this portion of the lot is visited by wildlife. As slightly over half of the property remains treed, there is no end of options for your property.

    The northern part of the property adjacent to the lake is cleared and in regenerating hay production. The neighbouring property on the west boundary is the well-known Tachick Lake Resort. A small portion of the property is located on the south side of Tachick Lake Road.

    Lot B - $475,200
    • Size: 175.6 acres
    • Lakefront: 1,924 ft (586.5 m)
    • Cleared (approx.): 132.5 acres

    This is prime lakefront property! The old homestead was located here at the end of the access trail running though the center of the property. All that is left is the shed and the power access. An ideal spot for a new home site is on a small hill overlooking the lake, which offers 180 degree views of the lake and surrounding hills.

    While approximately 20% of the property is treed in a mixture of poplar and spruce, most of this property is cleared and in hay production and more could be cleared for further production. Excellent for growing in demand hay and alfalfa crops.

    Lot C - $575,000
    • Size: 264.4 acres
    • Lakefront: 1,776 ft (541.5 m)
    • Cleared (approx.): 208.2 acres

    This is your start to a great farm! The majority of the lot is either in hay production or cleared and ready for planting. There is a good location for a home a few hundred yards from the lake.

    A small portion of this property is located on south side of Kenny Dam Road. While the property is treed in poplar and scattered spruce, this would be easily cleared to increase your future production.

The people of Vanderhoof are low keyed, easygoing people who are mostly hobby farmers with horses and enjoy the outdoors fishing and hunting.

    Simon Fraser’s diary relates that he was the first white man to trade with the surrounding First Nations people of Chinlac in the Vanderhoof region. After the fur traders came the packers, miners, telegraph operators, surveyors and finally settlers looking for their free land of the frontier.

    Early settlers came in from the south over the western end of the Telegraph Trail. They traveled up the west coast to Prince Rupert where thy boarded river steamers to take them to Hazelton, then they trekked along the Trail to Fort Fraser. Those bound for Fort St. James branched off and followed the pack trail between the two Hudson’s Bay Forts; others continued along the focal point of the Nechako Valley. The telegraph line was erected in the early days with the object of forming an overland connection between America and Europe. The Telegraph Trail followed the line from one end of British Columbia to the other and since it was the only trail into the country, it was also the main artery of travel. Many of the men who had been employed on the telegraph line remained in the north, trading, trapping and prospecting for gold.

    In 1906, the Village of Vanderhoof was only a survey line in the wilderness to mark the location of the planned railway. When the last spike was driven on April 7, 1914 it started a race for the land. The Grand Trunk Pacific Development Company offered cheap land and had one of their employees, Mr. Herbert Vanderhoof, lay out the townsite. Vanderhoof is Dutch for “of the farm” which was very appropriate since it was the first agricultural settlement in the province. The town grew and in 1926 the Village of Vanderhoof was born. With the arrival of World War II many young men left and Vanderhoof came to a standstill. The next boost to the population and the economy came with the construction of the Kenny Dam in the early 1950s. At the peak of its construction it employed 1,500 men and a number of them stayed in the area after the dam was built. The next expansion period came with a large influx of American immigrants in the 1960s and since that time Vanderhoof has enjoyed steady growth.
