Ive been an Islander my whole life and have experienced many tourist spots. Id have to say what I love most about this heavenly little spot is the service; you just dont find genuine people around very often these day but at this spot they are ALL HEART! From the thoughtful welcome gift basket to the considerate customer care there...

If this is the last room available in Lake Cowichan go back to Duncan. The people were pleasant and helpful. That's about it on the plus side. The hotel is really showing its age. The door jam looked as if the door had been kicked in a couple of times. There was a bag of garbage scattered around the deck....

It is a small town close to a large city. The room was nice and clean and bed very comfortable. It is less than a minute walk to a beach and waterfront walk. The entire area is very clean and the people are very polite. Nice place if you want quiet. And there are several restaurants within a few minute...

Its on the main road in Lake Cowichan and is bigger than it appears from the front. We had a clean 2 bdrm unit with a small but functional kitchenette with access to BBQs, patio tables for eating and we could swim etc right off their dock. Walkable to most things including tubing on the river. Unit was missing a...

Lovely setting. Very basic accommodation but clean and comfortable. Loved that we could have a campfire but need your own axe and firelighters. Expected kayaks and fishing lines as seemingly promised on the website but they are apparently no longer available.

I went to Lake Cowichan for my in-laws' 50th Anniversary. They live in the town and had talked to one of the "former" employees that sold them a bill of goods. They had promised a bunch of changes to the yard to make it an elegant ceremony. None of that came to pass and that was only the beginning. We...

Boutique Hotel. If you don't already take that phrase with a grain of salt, you should. Do not assume that it means "small but elegant", nor that it is a labour of love for the proprietor(s). Neither of the above is true in this case - especially the latter. So first, here's why you should go. The setting of this...
