Krompocker Road is a fantastic location. It is a short 20 minute drive south to all the service amenities of Powell River or a 5 minute drive north to the ocean side and marina community of Lund.
This rural 4.5 acre parcel of land is entirely usable. The property gently slopes toward the ocean, but other than the light slope to the land it is virtually flat. The property has been cleared and site preparation has already been done to start home construction. The property faces southwest. In addition to the best possible sun exposure, you will also be able to watch the sunset daily over Savary Island.
There is an ocean view from the property. Some areas of the property have a bit better view than others. Trees block a big part of the view. By no means is this ocean view panoramic, but there is a view of the ocean and of Savary Island.

|Area Data :||
The tides moving from the north and south of Georgia Strait meet just north of Savary. The southern tide is warm and the waters move less. This results in generally warmer seas. This water flows over Savary's sun baked sandy shelf producing the warmest water north of Mexico.

The area that is now Lund has been known to the Coast Salish peoples for thousands of years as a village site of the Sliammon people. The village of Klah ah men was home to dozens of families and a desirable location as it was accessible by land and sea so approaching visitors could be detected from afar.
Further, both I hohs (Savary Island) and Tohk natch (Okeover Inlet), plentiful in shellfish, salmon and land mammals, were only short paddles away. Fresh water was ample as were cedar trees, the main material source in the production of tools, shelter, clothing and more. Ceremonies, both spiritual and social in nature, were held at Klah ah men, and included dance, song, and recreational games that were a major part of Coast Salish culture.
In 1889, Fred & Charlie Thulin arrived from Sweden looking for a better life in the new "land of opportunity." The brothers first set eyes upon the area that would later become Lund while sailing by on the side-wheeler tugboat Mermaid on their way to find employment logging in Pendrell Sound. Shortly thereafter Fred and Charlie settled in the area they named Lund, after the University town of the same name in their native Sweden, immediately building a wharf, logging the bay, piping in water and converting suitable land on the settlement to farm land.
In 1892 a post office was established, one of only two north of Vancouver at the time. A general store was constructed and shortly thereafter the first passenger and mail boat began making regular stops at Lund, tying it to the world. By 1895 the brothers had built Lund’s first hotel, which held both the first hotel licence and the first liquor licence to be issued north of Vancouver. A bottle of the best scotch was available for $1.50 and the basement of the hotel housed a jail cell, primarily used to “accommodate” any drunken rowdies patronizing the hotel. By 1905 the Thulins had purchased the first donkey engine seen up the coast, built their first steamboat, "City of Lund", and expanded their chain of stores to Sliammon Village and to where present day Townsite is. As coastal traffic continued to increase, in 1905 the Thulins began construction of a second hotel, The Malaspina, which in 1918 was renamed the Lund Hotel after the original building was destroyed by fire.
In November 1999 the Sliammon First Nation and a local businessman purchased the property and commenced extensive renovations, reopening the doors in the spring of 2000. Although further improvements and expansion are planned, the hotel currently boasts 27 well-appointed guest rooms and the new pub and restaurant feature un-obscured ocean views as well as spectacular menus. During the warmer months, guests may dine on the spacious waterfront decks, savoring the ocean breeze and the bustling activity of Lund Harbour. Historic photos grace the walls of the entire hotel, telling the story of the hotel and Lund as only those immortalized by the camera could truly tell it.
