Nestled in British Columbia’s Thompson Okanagan, the Shuswap is a land of mountain vistas, alpine trails, artisan communities, idyllic farms and, of course, the warm waters and beaches of the famous Shuswap and Little Shuswap Lakes. The lakeshore communities are a popular destination for outdoor recreationalists and properties along the Shuswap are also popular with real estate investors seeking a home in one of the choicest recreational areas in British Columbia.
British Columbia’s Shuswap region has long been renowned as a recreation and vacation paradise for golfers, hikers, bikers, skiers and boarders, sports fishermen, houseboaters, kayakers and canoeists. It is comprised of six key areas – Chase, South Shuswap, North Shuswap, Salmon Arm, Sicamous and Eagle Valley, and Falkland. These areas are situated near a system of interconnected lakes and rivers that include Shuswap Lake, Little River, Little Shuswap Lake, the South Thompson River, Adams Lake and the world-famous sockeye salmon spawning grounds of the Adams River. In addition to the Thompson and Fraser rivers, which connect these bodies of water to the Pacific Ocean, a host of smaller rivers, creeks and lakes add to the opportunities for outdoor sports and wildlife viewing.
With its large number of rivers and lakes, and its abundant miles of beaches, it’s no surprise that picturesque waterfront Shuswap real estate is popular with families, holiday makers, retirees and real estate investors. Each community and neighbourhood within the region is unique with plenty of tucked away architectural masterpieces.
