     It's moving here.  Jump on board now.  Magical Kootenay Lake offers tremendous opportunity.  It’s one of BC’s largest lakes extending over 100 km, flanked by the Selkirk and Purcell Mountain Ranges.  The lake remains ice free in the winter, and contributes to the temperate climate.  The southern location makes it a British Columbia gem and a Canada Top 10 Places to See (Macleans Magazine).

Location, Location...

     Simply the best location on Kootenay Lake - a destination resort near the Kootenay Lake Ferry Terminal that loads and unloads hundreds of thousands of passengers each year.  Add the highway frontage, watercraft traffic, regional demographics, high tourist volume, world-class attractions, local trading area, and you get a guaranteed, diverse customer base.


NOTE:  The BC Government has announced an exciting several million dollar upgrade to the Balfour Ferry Landing next door that will contribute significantly to future value for the property.  Construction of a new ferry is also in the works.


Proven Track Record -


     It's turn key.  With over 70 years of business history, the site is a proven money generator.  Until recent owner lifestyle changes, gross revenues sustained increases of more than 10% annually, and net increased substantially more.  Projected rental revenues show an easy 8 to 13 percent rate of return.  Purchase the restaurant (a separate offering) and watch those numbers soar.



     Easily grow your earnings from untapped accommodation and commercial lease opportunities.   The current owners chose lifestyle.  With some motivation the accommodation return goes from a good to exceptional.

Easy to Rent with

Near Zero Vacancy

The Nelson Kootenay Lake area boasts an extremely tight accommodation and rental market with a near zero vacancy rate - 0.7 percent in October 2017, Central Mortgage and Housing Corporation.   Commercial vacancy is also low, at about 2 percent.


Listed LOWER than Replacement Cost

      To rebuild the 11,000 sq. ft. custom timberframe structure, install utilities,  add in the 1.2 acre lakefront lot, newly paved parking, new dock, plus the duplex, and your replacement cost is over $5 million. The entire investment is priced to sell at $2.95 million.



     With passive revenues at a quarter million and more active revenues pushing $400,000, mortgage specialists indicate the buyer may qualify for a mortgage with an investment as low as 35% of the property value or a commercial loan at 50%.

     The low Canadian dollar means greater buying power for foreign investors, about $2.25 million USD

(Aug 2018).
