Shawnigan Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Welcome to cabin 19 at Koksilah River!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We all loved your cabin. It was just right for us. One family was upstairs and my other daughter and I were in the downstairs bedroom. We so enjoyed the Tressle and exploring the trails at the river and also the 'swimming hole' at the river by the cabin. All the cabin neighbors were very friendly. Thank You. Sincerely, B.K.

Had a lovely, relaxing 2 night stay in this well appointed, comfortable cottage. The setting and the river was breathtaking. Definitely worth checking out!

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
I was completely amazed with our stay. The cabin was full set up and absolutely prefect for our visit with family and friends. The swimming pole was perfect to cool off in and the trails beautiful. We are already excited to plan our next stay. Would for sure recommend staying here.

FANTASTIC CABIN AWAY FROM IT ALL!!

  • 5 of 5
~a great little cabin nestled in the forest. enjoyed the quiet and singing birds on the large front porch! the garden/yard behind cabin is super cute.
~neighbours were friendly and nice.
~the river was beautiful. fed the crawfish. you can float down it; it's so calm. kids had the most fun I think on the tire swing on the way down to the river.
~there is a little play structure/tree house but I would recommend it for older kids...railings missing/loose...it's "homemade". super cute but was nervous having my 2/4 yr old up there. ;)
~beach at the lake was awesome [east side of lake; not the one at the T intersection :)] made sandcastles and swam in the cleanest water (described to friends at home, "clean like it was poured out of a water bottle")
~day trips to sights are easy. did the totem pole walk thru Duncan that has tons of cute little shops. caught a play at the chemanius theater. ocean is close for a change of scenery. there are lots of things to do...we were pretty happy relaxing at the beach!
~cabin was clean besides a dusty bunny or two. there wasn't anything I was wishing they had when it came to preparing meals/cleaning up. lots of towels. lots of sleeping space. there is a bathtub too that was great for the kids. would definitely say listing is accurate.
~my husband got to meet the owners and said they were very nice people!!
~we would recommend this cabin for sure. it's a great price. fantastic location if you want to get away from the busy city. we'll return if we can make it happen again!!
~ the kids, "liked the comfy beds and playing with the toys" and "the river with the crabs (crayfish) and fish".

QUITE HIDEAWAY IN THE FOREST

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. The area is about 20 cottages and was very quiet. The cottage is basically brand new. It was about a 10 minute walk to the trail and another 10 to the Kinsol trestle. Just make sure you go the right way on the trail, we went the wrong way and added an hour to our walk. It takes about 2 minutes to get to the river.
