Description : The property faces due west and has 100 ft along the water and has sides of 700 ft, the property rises quite steep in the back. Janet Creek runs through the back half of the lot, before heading north through the neighbouring parcel. There are water rights on Janet Creek that go with the land. There is also a rundown cabin of approximately 190 ft2 which is still useable but needs work, and there is also a large concrete pier where a new docking system can be attached. You can probably run a small Pelton wheel electrical system from the creek, there seems to be a large enough drop for at least a trickle charge system.
Location : Located about 12 kilometers north of Deep Cove on the eastern (sunny) shore of Indian Arm, just east of the southern tip of Croker Island. The beautiful Granite Falls and park are only minutes away, as is the Wigwam Inn and the head of the inlet.
Access : You can launch a boat at Cates Park (just south of Deep Cove) or you can have year-round moorage for your boat at Deep Cove. The property is only 20 minutes north of Deep Cove.
Improvements : Old cabin of little value and concrete pier block for anchoring a new dock system.
Services : Water Licence for 500 gal/day on Janet Creek.
Vegetation : Typical Coastal mix of deciduous trees and conifers.
History : Indian Arm has a long history of its own as a recreational destination. In the early 1900s regular excursions plied these waters with holidayers or day trippers going to resorts "up the arm." These resorts no longer exist but general and dinner cruises are still an important part of some visitors' itineraries. Indian Arm is an important hunting and fishing area for the Coast Salish First Nation, including the Tsleil-waututh (Burrard), Musqueam, and Squamish bands. Their traditional use of the area is evidenced by pictographs found in the park. The historic Wigwam Inn, at the north end of the inlet, was once a luxury resort that attracted customers travelling by steamship up Indian Arm. RECREATION
