WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US
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.
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. Barbara 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.
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!
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!
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!
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

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.

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.

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