Shawnigan Lake, British Columbia, Canada

Your suite is centrally located on the Malahat mountain, central to Greater Victoria and the Cowichan Valley wine country. 7 acres of privacy with forest, mountain and ocean views. Walk or cycle the Great Trail as far as you like in either direction. Short ferry to Butchart Gardens just minutes away. Go for a swim or sun at our private lake, just a 1 minute drive or 10 minute easy trail walk away. Outdoor recreation is endless here, whether hiking, biking, boating, sightseeing, whale watching, wine tasting ... or just kicking back with a glass of wine and enjoying the serenity of the forest. Eagles, ravens and hawks love it here. Keep an eye and ear out for Night Hawks at dusk, as they dive from above with a loud "whoosh". Black bears are fairly common but they stick to themselves. Oh, and you might run into our two kitties on the property, Birch and Tubby ... they're brothers and almost always together. We hope to see you soon!
