Cultus Lake Real Estate & Neighborhood Info

July 12, 2011

Cultus Lake is a major vacation destination in the Chilliwack area. A mountain playground just north of the U.S. border, the lake brims with campers and swimmers in summer. Side roads lead to forested acreages, and mountaintop aeries evoke a quieter era. The area is also prime fruit-growing terrain, with kiwis and nuts among the local produce.

Developers have recently seized on the area's potential, building new homes that upgrade some of the more rustic original premises. This means a diverse range of housing is available, whether you want to live here or just get away from the cities of the Lower Mainland for a weekend at a time.

Cultus Lake Shopping

Cultus Lake Market supplies many of the basic needs for those vacationing at or living around Cultus Lake. The area's proximity to Sardis and downtown Chilliwack means most shopping, including essentials, is done in town rather than at the lake.
