North Lake Waterfront Home is a comfortable, newly-furnished home featuring spectacular panoramic lake views both upstairs and down. Wake up to the morning sun breaking through the mist that clings to the water. With its fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities, you have all the convenience of city dwelling in a secluded natural setting.
North Lake Waterfront Home features a large deck situated only steps from the water's edge on North Lake. Walk right in the crystal-clear water from the sandy beach. This beach also happens to be a nesting ground for the endangered Western Painted Turtle - if you're very lucky, you may get... to witness some egg-laying or hatching activity. The home boasts 180 degree panoramic lake views from the open plan living room/ eating area downstairs and from the master bedroom upstairs. The master bedroom features a comfortable hand-crafted four-poster bed, while the downstairs bedroom offers two twin beds which can be pushed together to make a King. Curl up to the cozy wood-burning stove and watch a DVD, listen to music or play one of the many board games available. There are 2 private docks with a rowboat, paddle boat and life jackets for guest's use. The grounds are carefully landscaped, displaying dozens of varieties of Rhododendrons and other local indigenous plant species. The Lakeside Cottage is just 100 meters down the driveway from this Vacation Home. Renting both can be the perfect solution for a party of six, offering one couple an extra degree of privacy.
North Lake Waterfront Home is located on the North end of the Sunshine Coast of BC, just outside of the village of Egmont and a hop skip and a jump from Vancouver by ferry. Relax and enjoy the 40 minute ferry ride and the scenery of fir and cedar treed islands and majestic coastal mountains. Once you arrive in Gibsons, it is a scenic drive up the coast to our waterfront accommodations. Sit on our sandy beach and soak up the sun in your own private retreat. Or relax with your coffee on the deck while you listen to the call of the loons off in the distance.In the summer, the lake reaches warm temperatures for swimming. In the winter, enjoy a book by the fireplace or try your luck fishing for lake trout. There are no motorized boats on North Lake, so if peace and quiet is what you're looking for then you have come to the right spot! We request that guests respect the tranquility of the setting and adhere to the 11 pm outdoor noise curfew during their stay.

North Lake 2 Bedroom Sunshine Coast Water Front Retreat Egmont, British Columbia, Canada
Additional Location Information
Accessible only by public ferry, plane or 6-day hike, the Sunshine Coast offers a rare kind of privacy and isolation… especially considering its location, only an hour northwest of Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Lower Coast, as it is commonly called, is accessible via a 40-minute ferry ride from Vancouver's Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal and is only 4 hours from Seattle, Washington. Whether daytripping from the city or getting away for an extended stay, this mainland coastal paradise on the glimmering Strait of Georgia is one of the most tranquil, beautiful vacation destinations in the province. The Sunshine Coast is made up of several distinct and equally charming communities: Gibsons (including Langdale, Gibsons Landing and Upper Gibsons), Roberts Creek, Davis Bay, Sechelt, Madeira Park and Egmont as well as idyllic destinations such as Halfmoon Bay, Redrooffs, Thormanby Island, Pender Harbour, Earl's Cove, Nelson Island, Westview, Powell River, Cranberry/Wildwood, Lund and Texada and Savary Island.
Known for its artistic spirit, the area hosts several cultural events throughout its calendar including the Festival of the Written Arts, the Hackett Park Craft Fair and the Fibre Arts Festival, with numerous other smaller shows and exhibitions made popular thanks to the Coast Cultural Alliance. In fact, a thriving industry of galleries, curiosity shops and antique stores pepper the area, lending to this coastal area's quaintness. Of course, seaside restaurants, bars and bistros also abound, providing romantic ways to enjoy some of the most beautiful sunsets on the West Coast.
Naturally, the area is somewhat of a mecca for recreationalists, visitors coming from near and far to enjoy all that the Sunshine Coast has to offer… water sports are extremely popular, from sea kayaking to scuba diving. The biking and hiking trails provide some of the most beautiful wilderness the planet has to offer (take on the Sunshine Coast Trail!) and the fishing rarely disappoints, whether you're a fresh or saltwater expert. Beachcombing is a favourite area pastime, but air and boat tours are available if you want to take your exploring to the next level!
