Property description

Beautifully situated on Shawnigan Lake, this Vancouver Island rental house is on a quiet road off of a quiet road, located a short half hour drive from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. This lakefront sanctuary will take you back to an era of elegance and romance. Sun soaked days and magically moonlit nights are yours. Wake up to birds singing and watch the eagles fishing from nearby McKenzie Island's tall trees.

Spend the day boating, fishing, hiking, swimming. Take a scenic ferry to nearby Butchart Gardens. Dine on the lakeside deck with fabulous views. Relax with a romantic evening stroll down the winding stone staircase to the dock and pop the cork amid a waterlily garden. After dark, lights reflecting across the lake highlight the beauty and intimacy of this setting. Nestle in by the cozy and efficient fireplace to wrap up another enchanted evening on Shawnigan Lake.

This home is elegant and modern, well appointed with fine furniture, antiques and beautiful art. Large windows look out upon fabulous lake views. With radiant floor heat throughout and ample natural ventilation, it is comfortable in all seasons.
