Headwaters Lake #2
Older rustic 580 square foot cabin is estimated to be 30 plus years old.
It has propane lights, propane stove and fridge and back up generator.
It is a one bedroom cabin with additional bunk beds located at the rear
entrance of the cabin, when additional children are staying over.
The living room is 12'-6" x 11'-7" and has lovely views of the lake.
Wood burning stove is located at one end of the room.
The dining room is 12'-6" x 7'-10" and has the same views of the lake.
The kitchen is 8'-3" x 7'-10" and has a propane stove and fridge.
Bedroom is 7'-9" x 11'-6" and has one double bed.
Open bunk bedroom is 10'-7" x 10' and is near the back door entry.
Water is pumped from the lake to a holding tank and gravity fed to the cabin.
Just outside the back door is a shower stall and the out house is located
just to the rear of the cabin.
There is lots of room out front on the sun decks to enjoy the views and
peace and quiet.
There is a detached 20' x 12' shop/storage shed with a duroid roof.
The owners dock at the lakeside edge may be on the neighbors property.
The property is .205 acre of land and has 98.42' of lake frontage with 98.42'
at the rear of the property with 131.23' on the south side and 131.23' on the
north side of the property. From the cabin the property rolls off down to the
lake edge to the dock. The property rolls off behind the cabin and storage
shed as well into a large pond. There is a shared access to these two
lots and a locked gate is located near the access road which branches off to
the other side of the lake and more cabins.
The property has a narrow access road to reach the cabin which crosses
the neighbors property. There is limited parking out front of the cabin for
only a couple of vehicles, and really no additional room for RV's.

Headwaters lake #2 Stats
Headwaters lake #2 has an elevation of 1,300 meters or
4,100' level. The surface area of Headwaters lake #2 is 19 ha,
or 47 surface acres. Headwaters lake has a perimeter of 3.4
kilometers or 2.11 miles. Buyers need to confirm these stats
if it is a concern to them.
Headwaters lakes are located just north of Peachland via the
old Princeton Hwy. At approx. km20 you will come to the turn
into Lake #1, which is a small fishing resort. Keep to your right
on the main road and you will soon start to circle lake #2.
Look for an orange gate on your left and this is where you will
enter and look for my for sale sign on your left and a street sign
that says HEMLOCK. The subject property is only a short walk
beyond my for sale sign.
There is a second alternate route if
you are coming from Merritt. Coming from Merritt towards
Kelowna for approx. 60km you will come to the Hatheume lake
resort exit on the Pennask summit. Take this exit and follow
the Hatheume lake signs for approx. 7km and you will come to
the under pass for the Connector Freeway. You will make a sharp
right turn and and follow the gravel forest service road for approx.
8 km where you will come to a junction in the road. Sharp right
hand turn and you will see lake #2 on your left.
I am not sure if
this alternate route is maintained through the winter months, but
it appeared to be open in the winter of 2011. This route will cut
approx. 1 1/2 hours drive time off your trip should you go back into
Westbank and over to Peachland and back up to Headwaters lakes
