Shawnigan Lake cabin description

Welcome to cabin 19 at Koksilah River! You will find yourself in the beautiful Cowichan Valley, minutes drive from beaches at Shawnigan Lake and Shawnigan Lake Boarding School, and minutes walk down to the beautiful Koksilah River swimming holes that are a part of this private property recreational community.

This cozy cottage comfortably sleeps 4 adults plus some children although we can accommodate more, it would be crowded. After your morning coffee, head for a beautiful walk to the famous Kinsol Tressle on the Cowichan Valley Regional Trail before relaxing on the sunny front porch or heading out to explore all the interesting places in the Cowichan Valley.
