Description :

Lakefront lot for sale on Crown Royal Island on Lac La Hache - the Cariboo’s top boating lake. Each lot on the island enjoys privacy provided by mature trees. At present some of the lots have been developed into recreational getaways, some with docks and cabins while others have been left as bare land. This property (Lot 7) is one of the largest and southernmost lot on the island.


This is a great and rare opportunity for a waterfront property under $100k! Lot 7 is one of, if not the largest, the lots on the island with 0.73 acres. Dimensions are approx. 100 ft wide and 325 ft deep. The land is fully treed and an ideal place to tuck a simple cabin in the woods. The lakeshore is relatively shallow and ideal for kids and swimming with shallow bench in front of lot.


Several options are available to launch the boat for the short crossing - nearest launch is only 720 feet away. Parking possible on nearby Crown land.


There are no services on the island, it is very quiet and a great place for an off-grid retreat. A simple septic set up is possible - either a traditional septic system or a more basic compost system. Potential to pump water from the lake. Power via solar, wind or generator.

Location : Lac La Hache is located at approx the halfway point between Vancouver and Prince George - 5.5 hours north of Vancouver and 15 mins north of 100 Mile House. Crown Royal Island is located in the middle of the lake with convenient access to launch a boat for access.

Area Data :

100 Mile House (population: 1,885)
100 Mile House is a major service and commercial area for outlying communities and industries within the Cariboo. Many towns along the Cariboo Highway are helpfully referred to by the distance north along the Gold Rush Trail from Lillooet (Mile 0).c Thus 100 Mile House marks the 100-mile distance between Lillooet and this town.


Lac La Hache
The small, friendly community of Lac La Hache describes itself as the “Longest Town in the Cariboo.” Highway 97 skirts the entire 19 km shoreline of this beautiful lake in its rolling Fraser Plateau setting.

History : One tiny mistake and you're branded for life! That may well have been the complaint of the luckless French Canadian fur trader who lost his axe here while ice fishing. No doubt, to the delight of his trading buddies, the name Lac La Hache (translated as Lake of the Axe) stuck, and will remain so for eternity. That's one version of the origin of the town name. Another source credits a hapless Hudson's Bay Company mule that fell through the lake ice, taking its load of hatches with it.
