Posted by Hailey Troock on December 06, 2022

We have more land opportunities than what is listed here! Get in touch with a Land Matcher at to access our full land inventory and B.C. Land Matching Program support in your region.


This property is located between Crawford Bay and Riondel, two small communities on the East Shore of Kootenay Lake, about 1 hour from Nelson, including a 30 minute ferry from Balfour. The property is minutes from the ferry terminal on the east side of the lake. Creston is 40 minutes away down the east side of Kootenay Lake from the land.

The property has recently been logged and is partially cleared. It has some areas that are flat and plateau but is largely sloped, as it is located on the mountainside on the East Shore overlooking the lake.

The landholders are open to regenerative and natural practices on their land. There is internet available in the area and cell service. The route from the ferry and Creston to the property’s driveway are maintained roads.


This opportunity offers as much of the 120 acres of the property that someone is needing to graze animals, grow veggies or more! Come with your ideas and the landholders are excited to hear them.

The landholders are open to leasing most of the land for various endeavours as long as they can still have access to the property for recreational purposes. Since these photos were taken, more seedlings have popped up, as well as wild grasses. They are also open to someone to seed it for their animals to graze if needed.
