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.

BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic find! Probably our best VRBO ever. The cabin is quaint and wonderful! The deck overlooking the lake is fabulous! Brenda is the greatest! And so are Maddie and Indy! If you are looking for a wonderful getaway, this is the place to go. The grounds are beautiful, the wood burning fireplace was great, and the propane heater on the patio was a definite plus. We will definitely we back. Thanks again, Brenda!!!

COSY, COMFORTABLE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
This cosy, clean and comfortable two bedroomed cottage is located on a large plot. Brenda, the warm and welcoming owner, lives in a beautiful house with her two adorable dogs.The house is approximately 150 meters from the cottage. Brenda does not intrude on your privacy at all but is there should you want information or just a friendly chat.
The grounds are planted with many old trees and shrubs and enhanced with bedding which not only adds colour but attracts many birds. We were lucky to see hummingbirds everyday.
The cottage was exceptionally clean and had all the appliances we needed to self cater including a large gas BBQ which we used most days.
We spent a lot of time on the huge deck which literally overhangs the river and is the prime spot to watch wildlife (binoculars provided), kayakers or fishermen.If the weather is chilly switch the patio heater on and snuggle down in one of the comfy loungers wrapped in one of the fluffy throws.
There are a couple of restaurants, a pub, sports facilities, a selection of small shops and a wonderfully stocked store in the village which is a 5 minute drive or a 25 minute walk away.
We spent some days away from the cottage touring around the area and would recommend
a visit to Chemainus to see the paintings, Cowichan Bay for the seafood and a scenic drive to Port Refrew (watch out for the wildlife!).
I have walking difficulties and found the cottage and grounds very suitable for my needs. There is one step onto the rear porch and a large shower with one step into it.
I thoroughly recommend this cottage - just one word of caution - there are no doors on the bedrooms, just curtains so privacy may be an issue for some. Speak to Brenda, the wonderful owner and host, if this may be a problem for you!

PEACE AND BEAUTY!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week on Brenda's exceptional property and we're coming back for 3 weeks in Sept. The cabin is simply wonderful and is stocked with everything you can think of. Brenda has obviously been doing this for sometime. It rained off and on most of our stay, but we couldn't help spend time on the large deck, comfortable enough with the covered area to enjoy being outside even in the rain. The view from the deck is just 2nd to none in our opinion and it was easy to just sit out there and dream. When we got chilly, we went inside and enjoyed the wood burning fireplace (many times). There are a multitude of trails and areas to check out for the hikers/walkers. We are not fishing people, but if you are, this is the place to be! Thanks for everything Brenda....see you in Sept!

THIS IS PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks in this wonderful cabin on the Cowichan River. It is very difficult to find something this private and close to nature. This is the exception. The owner (very respectful of guests' privacy) lives in a house on this large, beautiful, historic property and has paid great attention to detail. The cabin is simple, but well-equipped and very comfortable, with a woodstove and a large deck overlooking the river. The deck and property are safe, but parents with young children need to be aware that the Cowichan River is fast-flowing. Renters should also be aware that there are two friendly dogs on site, as well. This is a great location, just outside the town of Lake Cowichan and a 20 minute drive to Duncan and the coast. What a find! We will definitely be back.

WISH WE COULD STAY FOREVER

  • 5 of 5
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.

RELAXING AND ENJOYABLE!

  • 5 of 5
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!
