“Perfect Location on the Cowichan River”
Reviewed 28 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The Cowichan Dockside Cottage is located right on the Cowichan River and a stones throw away from all the important amenities in Lake Cowichan (restaurants,grocery and liquor stores,tube rentals). The cottage is a perfect size for 2 people and comes equipped with a full size kitchen,queen bed,shower, BBQ, fire pit, and TV. The property is beautiful with a canopy of spruce trees over top of the cottage. The weather was warm (+30 degrees C.) yet the cottage temperature remained comfortable and cool. The dock on the property is amazing and perfectly located at the end of the tubing run (the best part). We took advantage of the floatation devices on-site and the step through lawn chair type ones worked well to keep us orientated in a straight line. We rented tubes on the second day from a local rental spot for a 3 hour tubing down the river and found these did not work well. A paddled raft would be the best type of floatation device to use. Arleigh and Leo were perfect hosts and kept our cottage and time at the dock very private for us. We will,unhesitatingly, be back.

“Nice cottage on perfect location”

We stayed in Lake Cowichan from 25-30 June 2017. Perfect quiet location on a very special spot: The Dock near the river was perfect, quiet and very special with wildlife all arround you. The cottage was OK, complete with a good bed but a little narrow shower, with weak WIFI.
When you like wildlife: This cottage is the place to be !

“Everything you need to enjoy your holiday”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This great cabin was perfect - had everything that you needed and more. The dock was gorgeous and so much fun with the rope swing across the way. The tubes provided were amazing. A fifteen minute walk up the road got you a 2 hour run down the river where you could then hop back up onto the dock! Leo and Arleigh were so welcoming and kind and respected your privacy tremendously. Would highly recommend anyone to come here for a getaway! I didn't want to leave!

“Hidden Riverside Gem”

Absolutely loved our stay here, the cottage, property, and owners were all superb. Everything inside was fresh, clean and unbelievably well stocked and maintained. From complementary beverages, simple spices, condiments, tea/coffee, shampoo/conditioner, and even saran wrap. The entire abode was clearly lovingly tended to. Outside the propane fireplace and BBQ were fully stocked and an utter joy after a day spent on the dock. Don't even get me started on the dock. Perfect swimming hole right in front and an utterly lovely set up. I can't stress enough how fantastic our experience here was.
