Cottage country is catching on in Western Canada with the launch of Phase 2 of The Cottages at Cultus Lake, which is about 90 minutes outside of Vancouver.

A popular vacation tradition for generations in Ontario, the family cottage is finally coming to the forefront of summer activities in British Columbia.

Close to 50 cottages have already been built and another 40 are underway at Cultus Lake.

Homebuyers purchasing in Phase 2 will also have access to “The Treehouse,” a $5-million community centre.

This extensive 10,000-square-foot building features two outdoor pools, hot tubs, a fireside lounge, a games room, kids club, fully equipped business centre, fitness centre and outdoor barbecue.

“It was only a matter of time before B.C. residents realized the value in purchasing a legacy property to be enjoyed by family members of all ages and passed on to future generations,” said developer Jon Van Geel of Cultus Country Investments Ltd.

“And Cultus Lake has been a cherished vacation spot for more than 50 years. It’s a weekend getaway within easy driving distance.”

When complete, the development will include 230 cottages. The cottage-style design includes gabled roofs, spacious front porches, and an open floor design.

The 45-acre project is bordered by Frosst Creek, a provincial park and a golf course.
