Tucked along the north banks of Fawn Lake, with south facing views and 335 feet of lake frontage, this rural oasis is a must see. Sitting on 10 acres of densely treed land, with fairly steep grade running from the road to the cabins below, the privacy is matched only by its beauty. The road to the lake is maintained by the district, and is only 25 minutes from Highway 97, ensuring quick access to major transport routes as well as amenities.
The two cozy log cabins were originally constructed in 1947 and were a part of the original Fawn Lake Resort before it was subdivided into the acreages that now border the north side of the lake.
The larger cabin (towards the east of the property) is approximately 273 ft2 (14 feet x 19.5 feet). It has a wood burning stove and a large 3′ x 6′ pane window that was installed to capture the stunning view of the lake. It has approximately 256 ft2 of deck off the front door of the cabin, and an additional lower deck of approximately 208 ft2 that directly overlooks the lake. The smaller cabin (towards the west of the property) is approximately 234 ft2 (13 feet x 18 feet) and also features a wood burning stove. It has approximately 254 ft2 of deck surrounding it. In 2002 and 2003 the original mortar chinking was removed and replaced with Log Jam® synthetic chinking, the exteriors were painted and new chimneys and Duraclad metal roofs were installed on both cabins.
The cabins and lot have plenty of potential. Keep it as-is or renovate and make it yours! No matter what your goals or dreams may be, this property will always have you coming back for more.

The west wend of the lake is quite shallow at around 7 ft, and at the deepest point it is about 30 ft. Rainbows in the 5 pound class are common. However, due to the presence of lake chub as feed, much larger rainbows in the 10 to 12 pound range have been reported.
