SPECTACULAR LAKE VIEWS AND SUNSETS ON SUNNY SIDE OF THE LAKE!

Shawnigan Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

STRATHCONA COTTAGE, a 2 bedroom cozy, well maintained, cottage with great Lake Views and Sunsets. Recently renovated and professionally decorated. One of the few last authentic cottages on Shawnigan Lake. This 66 year old cottage is only a stones throw to the lake and the dock where you can moor your boat, play in the water or just relax. Wander among the tall stately trees in the backyard and woods beyond. This is a Perfect Setting for a Relaxing Getaway any time of the year! It is also believed to house E.J. Hughes parents while they were caretakers for the famous Strathcona Lodge. Our other property next door is where E.J. Hughes himself lived and painted the majority of his works for 20 years.

My name is Lesia and Strathcona Cottage has been our family cottage for the last 25 years +. We decided in 2006 to make it into a Vacation Rental House so other families, like ourselves, could enjoy the wonderful warm summers in the lake or cozy up next to the wood burning stove in the fall and winter. I am intern architect that is slowed down my business to look after my young family.

Lusha purchased this cottage in 1982

Our family bought Strathcona Cottage many years ago from a potter. It took days to sweep all the dust out of the cottage so we could live in it. It was only a very small one bedroom cottage and my Father expanded to a two bedroom cottage with a larger kitchen. It was our family vacation home for years. In 2005 we decided to give it first renovation in years. Since then we have upgraded it every year. Shawnigan Lake is full of history and has changed so much over the years. We have been collecting items and show casing them to our guests of what it looked like in our area when Strathcona Lodge was at his peak.

What is unique to our vacation rental is that we recently found out that E.J. Hughes parents lived in our property as caretakers for the famous Strathcona Lodge as well as E.J. Huges himself lived in our other property next door and where he painted the majority of his works. How excited we were to find out about this as we are big fans of his work.

What I also like best about being in the cottage is looking out the windows in the back and seeing the tall trees. Especially, from the sky light. In the winter, it is so quiet on the lake. I find it is the best time just to chill and relax.
