Beautiful lake front house on Shawnigan Lake

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have vacationed at Shawnigan Lake and other lakes throughout BC for years, and this is the nicest place we have ever stayed at. The home feels brand new and has an amazing open concept floor plan that oversees stunning views of the lake. The house was absolutely spotless. The owners are very accommodating and easy to deal with. The lake itself is very warm and great for swimming and boating. We will definitely be back next year. Thank you!

Phenomenal Family Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at this wonderful, practically brand-new property. The cottage itself is very clean with everything needed to make your stay enjoyable – this included linens, towels and a fully equipped kitchen and laundry. In addition to a well-designed spacious interior, this home also boasts a large deck off the kitchen/living area with an outdoor patio table, loungers and a BBQ. The view from the deck is amazing! Also, to note, this cottage is located in a sheltered area on the south-west side of Shawnigan Lake where boating traffic is minimal. We found we greatly enjoyed this tranquil part of the lake!

As for our children, they had a blast using the pedal boat and kayaks that were included in the rental. They also greatly enjoyed their first kick at fishing, just casting their lines off the cabin’s private dock. (Just a suggestion: use worms as bait! You can purchase them at Mason’s Grocery Store.) If you do have a boat, our children also thoroughly enjoyed sliding down the (deactivated) ski jump on the south end of the lake and going to the Galley for ice cream.

All in all, this was a fantastic holiday for our family. From our initial booking inquiry to our actual stay, Colin and Cindy made everything seamless and easy! We can’t wait to return next summer!

Already booked for next year!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this wonderful, practically brand-new property for a week this past July. What an amazing, relaxing and fun-filled vacation. The cottage itself is perfectly laid out with plenty of space and amazing views from the front windows and deck. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and is nicer than mine at home with a huge island and great appliances! Now for the outside… Perfect! There is a large deck off the kitchen/living area with outdoor seating, loungers and a barbecue, and a large, private dock that is easily accessible down a path from the house. The kids were in the lake more than they were out of it. We had a beautiful view of Mt. Baldy and the water was warm and clear. We enjoyed kayaking, paddle boarding, the pedal boat, swimming and hanging out on the comfy adirondack chairs reading or sipping a glass of wine in the evening. The owners even took the kids out tubing a few times which was a definite highlight of their experience there. We had a great view of all the lake activity but nothing intrusive because the property is in a small cove off the "main drag". The owners were fantastic to deal with. Booking was very easy with payments made through e-transfers, the cottage was extremely clean and beautifully decorated (exactly how I would decorate if I were lucky enough to own a vacation property!) It was the perfect summer holiday for us and exceeded our expectations. We have already booked a week next summer. Thank you Colin and Cindy and we look forward to seeing you next year!

The way to vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 plus grandma stayed comfortably in this clean, modern cabin. Two bedrooms (3 beds) upstairs and 1 bedroom (1 bed) downstairs very comfortably met our sleeping needs. 2 bathrooms with 3 sinks avoided any fights for a sink. The kitchen is new with anti-slam hinges enabling quiet mornings while other family members continue with their sleep. New appliances and an extra large island make meal preparation with your family easy. The deck is large with a table, umbrella, BBQ and two loungers. The metal & glass railing is the right height to allow unobstructed views of the lake from a seated position. The house faces east, so the deck catches the morning and midday sun, then transitions to shade in late afternoon which is nice during summer weather. The dock is large with a bunch of chairs for relaxing right on the water. We had really hot weather and bought a couple beach umbrellas to keep the sun off us since we didn't want to leave the dock. The house is located in a small bay out of the main water traffic which allows safe swimming and floating, but still in main view of the traffic which is fun to watch. We brought our 21' kayak and pulled it up on the dock. The owners have a couple single kayaks that the kids used and had fun with. We also rented a jetski from the local marina for some added laughs. During the evening we played cards at the dining room table or watched TV. Cable service was great with clear single just like home. Movie rentals are permitted on the owners account a trust basis - they trust renters to leave them a little cash to cover the movie rental costs.

The owners were responsive to questions during booking, leading up to the trip, and during the week itself. The owners are trustworthy in regard to payments. We mailed checks to their PO box and had no problems - all obligations on their part were fulfilled.

Overall - this was the nicest lake house we've ever rented and recommend it to others without hesitation.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just spent a glorious, relaxing week at this home on Shawnigan Lake (kids age 12 and 15). The owners were wonderful to deal with from general inquiries, to booking, to staying. The house is beautiful, very comfortable with amazing views. Great layout for entertaining should a few friends come by to visit. Kitchen is very well equipped. We spent most of our day down at the dock or in the water. Paddle boat, along with the kids kayaks were a hit (FYI life jackets not provided so bring along if needed). A short half hour round trip to the nearest store or to grab a coffee. Rented a jet ski for the day from Sean at Shawnigan Lake Jet Ski Rentals - we had a blast! We had the best time and would book again in a minute - and only a half hour from home!
