Hi I'm Brenda, I have enjoyed the cottage for the last 25 years with my family. Having recently retired I have moved from the mainland into the main house on my property. I now rent out the cottage so other families can enjoy the river's tranquility and beauty, like my family has over the years.

Wish we could stay forever

From the moment we drove through the gates, it felt like we had come home! Brenda made us feel welcome from the start and we regret only booking 3 nights when we would have been happy to stay for 30 nights. The cottage had everything you needed and WOW what an awesome deck! We wish we lived a bit closer as we would love to experience the cottage in very season. We had some unusually hot weather which meant we got to experience "floating down the river". The water was so clear. AND we got to see the resident bear a couple of times - how exciting. Thank you for a wonderful stay Brenda. We hope to visit again in the near future.

My friend and I spent a week at the cottage and wish we could have stayed longer! Waking up in the morning and drinking coffee by the riverside was an unforgettable experience. The stars at night were amazing. Brenda was helpful in learning about the nearby communities... including the great farmers market and butcher shop. I cannot wait to come back!

Thanks Brenda!

A River Runs Through It

A German-Chinese couple and their 13-year-old daughter arriving from bustling Shanghai/China, we were looking for nature. And here is where we found it ... Cowichan Riverside Cottage ... ‘A River Runs Through It’ best describes the magic of this place. Brenda and her dog Maddy took excellent care of us and made us feel at home from the first minute. The 4-hour Skutz Falls hike recommended by Brenda instantly makes you fall in love with the rain forest - one of the best hikes in my life. Add a Kayak tour on Lake Cowichan - and you are in paradise.

This cabin is the perfect place to stay - just wish we could have stayed much longer. Brenda is a fantastic lady, very special and we look forward very much to coming back to stay here in the future. Mustn't forget Maddy the dog who is great too. You can completely relax here and just chill out. The cabin has everything you need - even wi-fi.

Heaven on Earth

This little piece of paradise is the most relaxing, tranquil spot to kick back and enjoy all that the Cowichan River has to offer. The cabin is warm and inviting with all the comforts of home, super clean and very well stocked. Waking up to the sounds of the river, while nestled in the deluxe bedding is truly "heaven on earth." The view, the sounds, and the atmosphere is like none other. Quaint and cozy, with walking trails, river sports, fishing and more....right at the front door. I will be back just as often as I can. I would highly recommend this fabulous place.
