I've owned property on Nicola Lake since 2007. We started with a Lot then build our first vacation home. We love this lake so much we sold and bought another Lot. Life on this lake is truly incredible. Nicola Lake is 22 km with an average dept 80 ft and a max 180 ft. There's something for everyone here. Fishing over 20 species of fish with Kokanee and Rainbow Trout being most prevalent. Ice Fishing is rapidly growing in popularity. Watersports such as wake surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, paddleboarding, sailing or just cruising in your pontoon boat. Atv, snowmobile, and dirt bike trails galore. Cycling around the lake is beautiful and tons of hiking with breathtaking views. If you're a golf enthusiast like my family you are going to appreciate Sagebrush Golf Course which is located on the lake will be re-opening in July 2021, or there's always the local Merritt Golf and Country Club. Tobiano is a 50-minute drive. Shopping and other amenities are only a 20-minute drive into Merritt so when grabbing gas for the boat you can stock up. Need to work sometimes- no problem.....the wifi works awesome. I set up my laptop and enjoy the view while answering emails or making a few calls, not so bad.
My favorite times are in the morning sitting on my deck with a cup of coffee bird watching; late afternoon after a full day of activity enjoying a glass of wine and reminiscing about the day with family/friends, and lastly sitting around listening to the crackling of the fire making smores to name only a few.
This is definitely my happy place! Hope I can help you find your happy place one day soon too!!!!
