Wonderful Weekend at Kinsol

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five fully enjoyed our weekend at Kinsol Cottage. The owners were very quick and thorough in their communications with us. Payments were handled smoothly. The on-site manager was very helpful. We found the cabin to be tastefully decorated and very comfortable. It was a beautiful sunny weekend while we were there so we were able to be out of doors enjoying the river and walking to the trestle. If it had rained, the compact nature of the cabin might have seemed confining for a group our size. The kitchen is well laid out and had everything that we needed. We appreciated the full sized fridge as well as the well stocked pantry! The extra beds are located in the loft - which has a safe railing and is accessed by a steep ladder. Our teens enjoyed this private space. We look forward to a return family visit next summer - and perhaps an early spring get away without the kids!

weekend rental

The cabin is in a cluster of cabins. We stayed here with other family members in another cabin for a wedding on the weekend. Would make a great location for a family reunion.
The person who showed us the cabin was very accommodating and friendly. The cabin is fully equipped, nice front porch for morning coffee, and a big back deck. The kitchen was stocked with all the staples, everything was clean and worked. It's close to the river for sunbathing or swimming. Very nice location - it is not "a cabin in the woods" but rather in its own little community.

A fun girls weekend

  • 4 of 5
This is a lovely cottage with everything you need. We enjoyed swimming in the river close by, enjoying the deck out back and bike riding along the Kinsol trails. A relaxing time with wonderful weather and a great spot to get away without having to go too far away from Victoria.
Thanks for sharing your cottage! We hope to take advantage of this nice spot again.

Cute

  • 4 of 5
Kinsol cottages aren 't for you if you want a "private" or "secluded" get away. The cottages are crammed together and look into each other's back yards. BUT they are so cute, it's like a mini village! Very friendly, the swimming hole has the freshest cleanest mountain water, the famous Kinsol Trestle is a nice walk/hike, and there is a shuttle service into town. It's well priced.

Food for the soul

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Kinsol Cottages! Great communication with the owners and the cabin has everything you need to make your stay comfortable (fully equipped kitchen, wifi, ample bedding etc) not to mention super relaxing. The private river was a dream and the community among the cottages really made for special trip. Shawnigan Lake is beautiful, definitely coming back!

Everything we wanted!

  • 5 of 5
We had a very nice time with our family at this cottage. It was in a nice quiet area close to the river (with an amazing tire swing! Seriously.. it was awesome.) and to several forested walking trails. The fully stocked cottage had everything we needed. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. Communication with the owner was easy and fast. A huge thank you to him and his family for sharing their cottage with us!
