Alert Bay, 390 & 241 Poplar Road

Alert Bay Cabins’ islocated in Alert Bay on the south east end of Cormorant Island and offer a great opportunity for a live and work from home situation or a good hands off investment with current management in place. This is a well established and well managed accommodation/resort-style business opportunity which is profitable. The property and all improvements are very well maintained.

This is a turnkey operation with no surprises, simply carry on with day to day business and regular service agreements. The offering includes two separate titled properties totalling 2.35 acres in a location that offers views to the northeast across Cormorant Channel then beyond to the snow-capped mainland mountains.

The 12 detached cottages are a mix of bachelor, one bedroom, two bedroom and duplex units. They are bright, cheerful, well-appointed and comfortable and as such are the preferred choice of many visitors to Alert Bay on Cormorant Island.

Each cabin has a covered entrance area, living area with a free-standing electric fireplace, dining area, full kitchen and a full bathroom as well as various sized covered decks. Most of the cabins are situated to take advantage of the beautiful location and ocean views.

The clientele is diverse, from vacationers to a regular complement of repeat clientele such as service providers working on the island (eg BC Hydro crews, BC Ferries staff) as well as First Nations members attending special events.

The primary building on the property is a 2 level home offering 2885sqft for an owner/manager residence. The home was built in 1985 and renovated a few years ago. The resort office is also in this building as well as a shared laundry area and storage space. A self-contained one bedroom suite is on the lower level and is currently used by the onsite caretaker. This suite could generate additional rental revenue for an onsite owner/operator.

The property is nicely landscaped mostly in lawns, with picnic tables and a bbq pit area for common use. There is a newly constructed pavilion; a substantial covered timber-frame area for guests to relax and enjoy the ocean view. This could also be suitable for larger gatherings. In addition there is a second open patio deck with ocean views and a storage/workshop building.
