Awesome weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

I rented this guesthouse with several friends as a place to get away for the weekend and enjoy each others company in a quiet natural environment. The house was clean, warm and inviting with room for 10 of us. The firewood was well stocked and the hot tub was perfectly relaxing. We even went out for a tour around the lake in the 2 kayaks provided. Everything was as advertised in the description. I have recommended this place to friends and would go back without hesitation.

Home from home retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights with our son and daughter in law and enjoyed the peace and quiet,cooking over the fire pit and kayaking on the lake (myself and my wife's first time). The house was very clean and very well equipped , loved the hot tub under the stars. We would definitely recommend this to families and groups. Hoping to come back soon.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented it this summer (2015) and it was amazing, the home and property was very clean and had everything we needed. We will be renting again in 2016 and hope there is no fire ban so we can enjoy the fire pit!

Great experience! Serene and Private

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this lake house. There were 10 of us, and we slept comfortably with a few people (and couples) sharing beds. The house is surrounded by a few other lake houses, but I don't think many people were around since it was winter time, so we felt very secluded and private and thoroughly enjoyed our time! Make sure to make use of the fire pit out back, it's a beautiful setting, and bring a canoe or a kayak to use on the lake like we did! The guest house is an awesome addition if you have a few extra bodies, as it has its own master bathroom and laundry.

Thanks again!

A very happy time

  • 5 of 5

We travelled from England to spend a week with our family who live near Calgary. This was a great place to stay with the family and four grandchildren who had a great time in the lake. We did a good walk up the large hill that the house sits under, but most enjoyable was sitting on the deck watching things go by. We had a family of otters by the side of the deck which the children got excited by.

We hope to come back for 2 weeks next time

Fab holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for a week travelling from the UK and taking our Vancouver based family too to celebrate my husband,s 60th birthday. It is in a lovely location on Mesachie Lake close to Lake Cowichan town. We loved the kayaks and even swam in the lake (in May!!). The hot tub was very welcome after that.

The house is well equipped and easily slept the eight in our mixed party of adults. Great road trip to Port Renfrew down the Pacific Marine Highway. The Boardwalk in Lakeview Park is nice too. Duncan is also well worth a visit. We drove back via Victoria which demanded more time to explore.

All in all a memorable week which we won't ever forget!!
