Shawnigan Lake Vacation Rentals by Owner

A vacation rental in Shawnigan Lake, British Columbia, Canada is a favourite weekend getaway spot. Your lodging is located forty minutes from Victoria on Vancouver Island, just north of Mill Bay. Shawnigan Lake is located on southern Vancouver Island, 3 miles (5 km) west of Mill Bay and 28 miles (45 km) north of Victoria. A fashionable summer recreation and cottage area for over a century, Shawnigan Lake has seen its share of happy anglers, blissful sunbathers and elegant day-trippers. Enjoy fishing in this stocked eight kilometre long lake. Rent your beautiful holiday lodging directly from owners of chalets, cabins, vacation rental and condo rentalaccommodations in Shawnigan Lake, BC, Canada.

Numerous shoreline marshes, an island park, and intriguing old lakeside cabins make Shawnigan Lake an excellent spot for kayaks and canoes. Spanning the Koksilah River Valley, the now-abandoned Kinsol Trestle is one of the largest and highest wooden trestle bridges in the world moments from your vacation rental accommodations.

Memory Island Provincial Park is located on the southern half of Shawnigan Lake. It only requires a short 1 km paddle to reach this tranquil little park. Come ashore to picnic, stretch your legs and do a little laid-back bird-watching.

Hike the trails on nearby Koksilah Provincial Park, or pack a picnic lunch and explore West Shawnigan Lake Provincial Park close to your vacation rental accommodations or condo rentals. The beach here is very popular with young families.

Golfers have a few golf courses in the area to choose from; Cowichan Golf and Country Club in Duncan (20 minutes from Crofton), Duncan Meadows Golf Course (15 minutes from Crofton), Mount Brenton Golf Course in Chemainus (10 minutes from Crofton), and Arbutus Ridge Golf Club in nearby Cobble Hill.

Directly east of Shawnigan Lake and just south of the Mill Bay ferry terminal is Bamberton Provincial Park. A large swath of sandy beach, complete with changing facilities, fronts on the Saanich Inlet here in close proximity to your vacation rentals. Dozens of picnic tables sit on the terraces slopes above the beach, shaded by a fir-and-arbutus (madrona) forest. This is one of the more scenic locations on the inlet, and from here you look east towards Mount Baker on the mainland. A truly scenic getaway can be experienced at your vacation rentals and accommodation.

Old Mill Park is located on the east side of Shawnigan Lake. The park was the mill site of the Shawnigan Lake Lumber Company from 1881 to 1945. In addition to its extensive industrial heritage, Old Mill Park has become a popular recreation site for families and nature enthusiasts within easy reach of your vacation rental accommodations.

The Trans Canada Trail Regional Park follows the abandoned Canadian National Railway (CNR) right-of-way. The trail connects with the Galloping Goose Trail and the Trans Canada Trail which creates a continuous national trail system from Mile '0' in Victoria to St John’s Newfoundland, with a branch going up through the Yukon, a distance of approximately 17,400 kilometers. The last spike on the E&N Railway was driven at Cliffside, on the east side of Shawnigan Lake.

Our comfortable suite has been designed with attention to detail. From the moment you open the gate into your private courtyard we know you will feel welcome. We have tried to anticipate your every need with a fully equipped kitchen and cozy living room while increasing the luxurious feel with Persian rugs and exquisite linen and bedding. Totally separate from each other, the bedrooms and bathrooms allow two couples to each have their own private area. The magnificent gardens surrounding the home may be enjoyed from your private patio or courtyard. Enjoy the fireworks at Butchart Gardens each Saturday evening throughout the summer or simply take in the spectacular view of the valley, ocean and mountains. Centrally located in the Mt. Newton Valley, local activities are just moments away. Whether you like to commune with nature, hike trails, walk along beaches, whale watch, kayak, tour gardens and wineries or shop local artists galleries and boutiques we are close to them all. Many of our guests comment on the peaceful and relaxing surroundings here and they so enjoy the delightful cuisine that our local restaurants provide. We encourage you to enjoy all that we have offer and we look forward to having you stay with us. Here are comments from some of our previous Guests: I searched for days until I found this wonderful rental. We decided to go to Victoria for a 4 day excursion to check out this beautiful area. We didn't want to stay right down town, however, we were hoping for something with style, privacy, character, and a place that was close to all of the areas we wanted to see. This place hit the mark and exceeded all of our expectations!! The Sunrise Suite is everything you see in the pictures and much, much more. It is equipped with any and every amenity you can desire. It is so much more than you would typically see from a standard rental. It is a short 15-20 minute drive to Victoria. There are a few small towns and wineries to explore nearby (and so many more places we did not get a chance to see)! Additionally, there are many beaches to explore. We had the opportunity to see the amazing Butchart Gardens (5 minutes from suite) as well as several beaches, including the Botanical Beach. There are so many things to do and so little time to do them. As an added bonus, while we were sitting on the patio Saturday night, we were able to clearly see the fireworks from Butchart Gardens (which they apparently do have every Saturday during the summertime). You can be sure you will find a few unexpected treasures, as the owners have done such a fabulous job adding beautiful personal touches to the property. Be sure to take time to meet them, as they are quite wonderful and gracious hosts. I am certainly looking forward to our next stay - I only wish it could be more frequent. Gorgeous in every way!" I was in the area for a workshop and this property was such a dream at the end of the day. Highest quality linens, gorgeous views, fully stocked kitchen along with quiet made my ten day stay easy and enjoyable. The hosts left no detail unaccounted for. I was warmly greeted and provided every amenity I desired. The WiFi worked perfectly, good grocery stores in the area, along with beautiful furnishings. I highly recommend this property to singles or couples. Guest Milton "Gorgeous in every way!" Guest Aryana Upon arriving our nerves relaxed and stress dissolved because the surroundings were serene and beautiful. Everything top notch. The grounds were immaculately groomed and the Suite was refreshing and tranquil. We immediately renamed the suite "the cottage" since it resembled the quaint English cottages found in England. The art, antiques, and fine linens were tasteful and inviting. We were in love and felt very much at home. The dogs we met by chance and found them to be lovable and mannerly. Our hosts, were so willing to accommodate us. Our vacation was a true delight. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. We highly recommend this superb place for your next visit to Canada.

REVIEWS: "Not only was our stay at the Cottage an impeccable experience, but we now consider the owner part of our family!!! The house is gorgeously styled, all of your needs are met and anticipated, and the location is the best that Victoria has to offer. You are 2 blocks away from all of your needs: shopping at Cook St Village, nature at Beacon Hill Park and a breathtaking view at the ocean. Plus, the downtown core is only a 10 minute walk from here. The property is magical, spotless and the customer service excellent. I wish I could live there all the time!!! " B. Prema "A gem of a rental. Thoroughly charming. The house is gorgeous and sweetly decorated. It was the most comfortable rental we've had. The kitchen had everything we needed. The Owner was the perfect hostess - involved enough to help, but never imposing and extremely respectful of our privacy. The apartment is PERFECTLY located - we could walk everywhere, but when we decided to leave town, it was very easy to get in and out of the city. The bottle of wine was a lovely touch that made us feel very well-taken care of our first night (when we arrived later than expected). I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting." Nicole

Treat yourself to an exceptional stay. Home away from home. Genial hosts, check – Velcro dogs, check – Wonderful flowers at home, check – Close to Butchart Gardens, check – Easy trip into Victoria, check. But, let me emphasize what others have mentioned in passing; this is a great place for foodies. If you want to eat out, there are plenty of terrific places within a short drive. Brentwood Bay Resort, Maria’s Greek in Sidney, and the Dining Room at Butchart Gardens, are examples. We especially liked the Cactus Club Café in Victoria. The real wonder is how well equipped the kitchen is if you want to eat at home, as we did. It is not YOUR kitchen, but it does have sharp knives (and a knife sharpener), heavy bottomed pans, some food storage containers, useable spices, and starter amounts of sugar and flour. If you want to bake, buy flour. If you need two tablespoons for a recipe, you will not have to buy 5 pounds of flour; what a treat. There was a nice welcome/starter collection that made the first day’s breakfast feasible, another treat. The aircraft carrier sized grill on the deck worked wonders, especially with our first night’s flank steak that also provided two picnics. Nearby, many farm markets were in peak season form. Greens, tomatoes, beets, cukes, corn (great on the grill), berries, berries, and more berries were all beautiful, plentiful and affordable. Satellite Fish Company in Sidney is terrific. It has a small selection of absolutely fresh fish at good prices. Free range eggs and chickens are available at farm markets and the Saturday farmer’s market at the fairgrounds. Several good groceries are nearby, too. Each night while having dinner on the deck overlooking the beautiful countryside.
