House rules
This place isn’t suitable for infants (0–2 yrs) and the host doesn’t allow parties or smoking.
Our off-grid cabin is located on a beautiful 40 acre property with river frontage for ultimate privacy. No power, we bring water in, no wifi, and unreliable cell coverage. New kitchen with propane range. Outhouse with A+ view and camping shower (or trip to river) if you can't do without. Read, meditate, play board games, sit by the campfire or get out and explore and swim. Ideal getaway for couples, best friends, or solo reflection. A uniquely West coast experience sure to rejuvenate you.

The space
Most of us are inundated with news and other data distractions in our everyday lives. And yet there is such peace in quiet, nature, and unencumbered time with partners, family, friends and even yourself! The Cabin in the Woods gives you a unique opportunity to tune out from the noise of regular life and tune in to the generous present moment. Do we need all the "stuff" we have? Get back to a simpler way of life for a short while and see for yourself.

Guest access
Our cabin is the only dwelling on our 40 acre property. The land is almost entirely forested, with a 1.2 km winding drive down to a beautiful meadow on the river, where there are some camping amenities that we use from time to time. The cabin is about two-thirds of the way there. You are welcome to walk the property and enjoy a swim in one of the many swimming holes along the river. We promise you privacy at the cabin, and note that you may (and I stress may) see us from time to time elsewhere on the property, usually by the river having a swim or mowing the grass.

Other things to note
Because the property is fully off-grid, and while we have a propane stove/oven and BBQ, we rely on a cooler for perishables. Please bring a block of ice if you plan to use it. Some guests choose to pack a cooler before they leave home, which is also good! There is plenty of lighting (solar, battery powered lanterns and LED lights), and there's always firewood for the fire pit area when regulations allow. When fire bans are in effect, we have a propane fire ring that fits neatly into the fire pit as an alternative.

The Cabin in the Woods is close to Shawnigan Lake (where we live), the Trans-Canada Trail (for bike riding and walking), and minutes from the Kinsol Trestle. Restaurants and local wineries abound a short distance away, as do many antique/up-cycling shops and other local attractions.

I live in Shawnigan Lake with my husband and two kids (ages 16 and 19). We live at our lake house on a full time basis and recently acquired a 41 acre property close by. This is a forest with a rustic off grid cabin in the middle of it. A long, quaint, unpaved driveway meanders through the woods, passes the cabin and ultimately ends up in a meadow by the Koksilah River. Here we enjoy camping, campfires, swimming and nature. This is a special part of BC we love to call home.
