WHAT OUR RENTERS SAY ABOUT US:

 Well needed family get away

Our family (2 adults, 2 pre-teen boys) along with our two furry members had a fantastic time! The fishing off the dock was wonderful and we caught 2 trout and 3 bass, kept two to eat and put the rest back. The owners have thought of everything and we wanted for nothing. Fun in the day and a cozy fires at night made for the perfect trip.

Hi Barb

We had another amazing holiday at your cabin. We love it there so much. The week just didn't feel long enough. I'm looking ahead to next summer as I know you guys book up fast.  We'd love to do two consecutive weeks next summer and we're hoping for mid August. Would this be possible?         
Thanks  Marnie, Vancouver BC

Absolutely wonderful!


Had a wonderful 2 weeks here. Enjoyed the beauty of the lake, the amenities and especially dealing with the owners. Had such a good time we are back in August 2014 and 2015! A lovely little piece of paradise!

Hi Debbie,

My family and I want to thank you for giving us a memory which will last a lifetime. This summer was our first “go to the lake “experience as a family. Your cabin could not have been better. The kids loved the long narrow driveway that led us down to the cabin. My wife and I loved the cabin. And everyone loved the deck, the dock and the cabana. Yes, we did have perfect weather during our stay but I am looking forward to coming back in September just to have coffee in the morning and enjoy the view. Thank you again for sharing your family jewel with our family.

Hi Debbie,

The cabin is excellent! The deck is really, really beautiful. We spent many hours there, enjoying the view and the sunshine. The cabin has everything to make a stay very comfortable: the dishes, glasses, cutlery, utensils, bedding, towels, microwave, coffeemaker, kettle, BBQ – all excellent! The beds are very comfortable! The fireplace is so cozy for those evenings when it was cool and rainy. The location of the cabin, being away from the main road, is great too. We loved the dock and sunny lounge area. Everything is so well thought out. We did not spend much time in the cabana; although in the 3rd week, Bill started to take afternoon naps there (after our various cycling expeditions). We spent a lot of time at the Kinsol Trestle and the trail north of it. We enjoyed that trail as well as the one along the West side of Shawnigan Lake. We also went to the “Last Spike” for a daily walk with the dog. As well, we enjoyed spending time at the Shawnigan Lake Museum and learning about the history of the area. In total, we visited 6 wineries and took our time at each one. We also ended up ordering some free-range lamb and chickens from 2 local farms. Barb and Cathy were wonderful hosts! 

We sincerely hope that others take good care of your precious property and that it stays in your family for many more generations. It is indeed unique for a family to cooperate on such an endeavour.

Debbie and Barb,

We all had such a wonderful stay at the cabin. We had the best of weather (perhaps for the entire month) and appreciated having such a beautiful spot to relax for a couple of days. We surely hope to be back. I looked at your calendar and I see you get a lot of bookings. I'll make sure to plan ahead the next time. We were very lucky to find an opening. The deck, by the way, with the closed sides was so perfect for our dogs. They were happy to romp in the lake (VERY) but when we were not with them there it was perfect to keep them tucked around us and still be outside listening to the birds. Best to you and Barb. Thanks for providing such a wonderful spot!

Debbie,

We had an awesome time in June and would like to repeat for next year however a couple of questions... Are there any other dates available?  We would like to stay for two weeks.  Any chances of that?  The place is brilliant and thoughtfully set up and we'd like to make this a regular summer destination we would like to lock in a yearly trip and dates.  Thanks!

Hi Debbie,

I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had at your cabin.  We are originally from Manitoba and  hanging out on the dock at Shawnigan took us down memory lane of hot summers at the lake. Thanks for the memories!

We had an awesome week not only relaxing ourselves but watching our "island" family enjoying themselves too!  Thanks so much for providing us with such a great place to gather and have fun.  See you again soon.

Many, many thanks for the stay at your lovely cabana and cottage. Loved the rustic atmosphere and the peaceful mornings and evenings lakeside.  Hope to return for more R & R soon!

Perfect get away!

Had a wonderful stay at The Cabin Club! Very clean, comfortable, and views like no other! We really enjoyed good fishing off the dock and the peace and quiet was just what the doctor ordered! We will definitely be back:)

Top notch property, something for just about anyone.


We stayed for nearly a month on and off, different people coming and going. The owners were right next door and very accommodating and yet laid back without being intrusive in the slightest. Huge wrap around covered deck to trap your little ones (pets & kids). So much to do around Shawnigan, we are from Victoria and there are still places that we haven't checked out yet. Or just swim and boat all day, every day off the dock. Beautiful sunsets every night, everyone had a nice time.

 Lovely lakeside escape

Our family of three took the cabin for a week in July. It's a truly lovely home from home - comfortable and well appointed, incredible lakeside views and a wonderful location. The dock on the lake is wonderful for swimming and boating from, the lakeside bunkie is a spectacular place for an afternoon nap or an overnighter, and the cabin is lovely and cozy. There was quite a lot of boat and waterskiing traffic on the lake, particularly at the weekend, but it wasn't a problem, and if you're into that sort of thing, it's likely a big plus. The hosts were wonderfully accommodating, punctual and couldn't have been more helpful. An all around success.

Wild Deer

We had a wonderful week, despite the cool June weather.  Our dogs were delighted to meet Coola from next door and loved spending their days on the deck and in the lake.  The cabana was perfect for afternoon siestas and the fireplace was appreciated on a rainy Friday afternoon.  The kitchen was perfect!  We are not looking forward to leaving tomorrow, and hope to come back next year.  All the best.

Lovely, rustic spot brought memories of cottage time in Ontario. Looking forward to returning next summer hopefully with boat in tow.  Many thanks!

Hi Barb,

My family and I rented your cabin last September.  We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the cabin.  Do you have any dates available for this September? Three of us are from Winnipeg and trying to coordinate dates with my brother from Istanbul

Hi Debbie,

We're having a lovely time here at the cabin.  Thinking waay ahead here....Cathy mentioned we should check with you about availability for next year... Do you have any weeks in left in August?  Thanks!

Debbie, 

Please pass on that we had a great time.  The water was fabulous, the weather was great, and the cabin was very cozy.  I apologize if some things got moved around.    William got into the spice cupboard once or twice.  The boys really enjoyed the place as well, and thank god for the gated patio.  William is still a toddler, and it would have been really hard keeping him gated in otherwise.
