The perfect summer getaway. Our lakehouse on gorgeous Cowichan Lake, Vancouver Island, is situated in the sunny south facing, executive cottage community of Creekside, just south of Youbou. Newly rebuilt in 2013 and designed to take advantage of sunlight and lake views. A fun and chilaxed feeling in the decor. Enjoy relaxing on one of the decks with a good book or just lay out in the sun on the dock with your favorite drink. Enjoy a dip in the crystal clear waters or go on a leisurely kayak. You can even try a little fishing from the dock or from the kayak. Kids love setting the crayfish trap. We have available for your use: life vests of all sizes, kayaks, fishing rods, bicycles, beach towels, tubes for the river, and room to moor your boat at our dock.
Our house is equipped with all the basic amenities you need for your stay. There is a convenience store 4.5km away in the community of Youbou. The larger town of Lake Cowichan is about 9km away, and has a large grocery store, restaurants, pubs , etc.
There are many recreational activities to enjoy around Cowichan Lake: provincial parks, hiking trails, golfing, water activities, river floating, bicycling, etc.
You can easiliy take a day trip to many other places on the Island, such as Victoria, Port Renfrew, Cowichan Valley, Port Alberni, Nanaimo, Saltspring Island, etc, etc. There is so much to see and do on Vancouver Island.
This is a family oriented, cottage community. Our lakehouse is not a rental and we will not accomodate partiers.
