Affordable BC Getaway: Cabin with Creek Listed for $160K

There is a two-bedroom cabin for sale with 5.34 acres of land. It’s about a 2-hour drive from Prince George BC to the property.

But for those willing to live far away from the comforts of a large city (Costco/Whole Foods), then this $160,000 property might be for you.

The property is located at 32392 Thutade Germansen Landing in Mackenzie, British Columbia

It has been vacant for three years, and it’s in need of some serious TLC. The property comes with two storage sheds and a wooden stove.

There are six 100-pound propane bottles waiting for you, but they are empty. Also included are a log splitter, snow blower, some solar panels, and a forced-air wood furnace.

The property is around an 11.5-hour drive from Vancouver.

I spoke to Jova Xu with Jovi Realty, and she said that statistics show that off-grid living is becoming increasingly more common in today’s world. According to a survey conducted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, approximately 1.7 billion people worldwide live without access to electricity. 

Mackenzie, British Columbia

Mackenzie is a small town located in the northern part of British Columbia, Canada. It is situated on the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains, about 180 km north of Prince George. 

Mackenzie is known for its natural beauty and outdoor recreation opportunities, including hiking, fishing, hunting, and skiing. The town is surrounded by forests and lakes and is located near Williston Lake, which is the largest reservoir in British Columbia.

The town’s economy is based primarily on forestry and related industries. The local pulp mill, owned by Paper Excellence, is one of the town’s largest employers. The town also has a small airport, a hospital, and several schools.
