# English Introduction
The Marine Inn is located in the most sought after areas within Powell River’s tourism district. It is adjacent to BC Ferries Westview Ferry terminal and newly renovated and revitalized oceanfront marina and sea walk. Foot passengers can walk directly off of B.C. Ferries right into the front door of the Inn. This is a great space in the best location to cater to the captive audience at your door step.
The Marine Inn is a 20,000 square foot commercial structure overlooking the marina. It includes 23 hotel room units, 150 seat ocean view restaurant, ocean view lounge/bar, 125 seat banquet room and a spacious commercial kitchen.
There have been recent upgrades to the restaurant, lounge and some of the hotel rooms. The restaurant is one of the most popular breakfast and lunch spots in Powell River. Not only does it have a modern dining room it includes a well-kept vintage diner at the entrance to the restaurant.
The lounge is a very cozy and intimate space that the current owners are only using for special occasions. We feel there is demand for the lounge to be operated full time adding to the revenue. The town is in need of such a place.
The bar or banquet room in the ground floor of the Inn is only being used once in a while as well. This is the ideal space for various different business models. It is the perfect space for weddings or other catered events.
Powell River boasts one of Canada’s most temperate climates, is a land of sparkling lakes, hidden inlets, rustic islands, crystal-clear ocean waters and rugged mountains. This region is a haven for outdoor pursuits that include diving, swimming and kayaking (in world-renowned Desolation Sound), as well as hiking, mountain biking and rock climbing.
There are an abundance of provincial and regional parks to choose from in the Powell River area. The area’s crown jewel, Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park is accessible by air or water only. This spectacular park is internationally renowned for its crystal-clear cruising and kayaking waters as well as numerous islands, bays and coves. Visitors share the area with whales, sea lions, seals, porpoises and dolphins.
# Area Data：
One of the best ways to explain the region is to simply look at a map or use Google Earth. It is a region that fronts onto the vast Pacific Ocean however, in these parts there is shelter from the open ocean due to the abundance of Inlets and Gulf Islands off its coast. It is no wonder why yachts from California make their way to Desolation Sound annually. It’s because the coast line really doesn’t become interesting until you start to hit the Southern tip of Vancouver Island, and as you work your way further North up the Sunshine Coast the islands become more plentiful and the scenery is that much more spectacular.
The town of Powell River is built along the ocean with a south west exposure to the sun. The view out over the ocean as the sun sets will never get old. The sun, the ocean is what fronts the town but what backs the town is equally as impressive.
The towering Coastal Mountain range with snow capped peaks surrounded by fresh water lakes is not only an incredible resource but has an incredible recreational benefit for all. These lakes and mountains are easily accessible by forest service roads. I do not believe there is another coastal community in British Columbia with such an abundant supply of fresh water as there is in the upper sunshine coast region surrounding the community of Powell River.
The town with a population base of roughly 20,000 people is truly a community at heart. With great people, infrastructure, services and amenities for all ages. Recently there was an article published in the Vancouver Sun which I would like to share. It gives you a really good sense of the culture.
