Likely, British Columbia V0L 1N0
Northern Lights Lodge has been named "Trout Lodge of the Year" by FlyFusion Magazine & received International recognition by three Fly Fishing episodes filmed by FlyFusion TV that were viewed by thousands of avid fly-fishers Worldwide.
This stunning, well-groomed property & dwellings are typically used for accomodating fly fishers from June to October. With an 80% repeat clientele, Northern Lights Lodge generally is booked By December with 30 to 36 anglers for the following September.
This brings revenue of $160,000 to $190,000 for September alone.
The property is accessed through the nearby town of Likely, BC, a historic gold rush community, and 1.25 hrs drive by paved road from the City of Williams Lake, which has full amenities and airport averaging 6 flights per day from Vancouver, BC.
This is a turn-key operation... all the infrastructure is already here, with potential for much more revenue return. Dwelling rentals and Lodge operations are just a small part of a possible future Income strategy. The 12.7 waterfront acres are slightly sloping, offering great subdivision lot potential, or R.V. Lot/Holiday Park lot sales.
A new owner can also apply for a Water Lease from the government to build a Marina as the busy waterway is in desperate need of this service in this area.
Typically, the annual revenue for 4 months of operation is between $350,000 to $400,000 per year.

This large and magnificent lake offers some of the most spectacular and secluded beaches found on any lake in B.C. Forested hills give way to mountains surrounding the N.E. portion of the lake. Fantastic family vacations can be planned here. Along with fishing, there is swimming, water skiing, sailing, kayaking, hiking and mountain climbing.....& no crowds.
Fishing: Rainbows, Dolly Varden, Lake Trout, Burbot and Kokanee are found in Quesnel Lake. These fish can grow to enormous sizes. 15 lb. rainbows aren't newsworthy, and 30 to 40 lb Lake Trout are often caught. Trolling apex lures with down-riggers is the most popular method of fishing. The Quesnel River flows from the lake at Likely, and there are several smaller rivers and creeks (including the World famous Horsefly River) that flow into Quesnel Lake. Fly fishing at the mouth of these rivers and streams can be fabulous at times. Millions of Sockeye and Chinook salmon come up with the Quesnel River and swim through the lake to get to rivers such as the Mitchell and the Horsefly to spawn.
