Property description

The entire Two Acres has a view of the lake and mountains and clear view of the Lake Front and 120 foot wharf where everyone gathers - which is safe and easy to touch base with friends and family.

Lakefront property is pristine and clear, clean water. There are no large stones or deep spots on the lake edge all the way along the property 165 feet - it does not have a steep slope but gradual with sand and gravel.

This Bavarian style cabin is unique as it has a balcony that looks out, to the lake and gets morning sunshine starting at 8:30 a.m. The cabin has a 24' TV that swings from the bedroom area to the resting area to view as you wish or have children sit on the settee to watch TV instead of the bedroom.

-Small and large groups enjoy the privacy and natural setting...along the beachfront , tents can be put up for privacy or a comfortable distance from the Fire-Pit area - The two acres surround the cabin and can be used for TENTS or VEHICLE parking -

Hedges front the beach area and give privacy and shade when the sun is high. The beach area is a gentle slope into the water .. with sand and gravel.The wharf is large enough to lay down mats for laying on or put deck chairs on and moor boats - a row of Logs have been put out into the lake 175 feet for swimmers safety.

Outside covered kitchen is unique as it is only a few feet from water edge allowing families to watch children.

Outside covered area with firepit and bar has a 12 foot wide, padded bench seat that is used for laying, reading or relaxing during the day and is magical listening to the waves lapping on the shore. From the covered firepit area you can hear the small waterfall from the creek only 15 feet away and as it is a Salmon Enhancement creek with small fry that grow daily under the bridge.

Kitchen has three sinks, clean drinking water with a new Britta filter and kitchen outfitted with microwave, new large propane table top cooking area and all cooking needs.

This is a rustic area and has natural habitat to be enjoyed at every turn with a large Fern walk area if someone wants more peace and privacy,
The NEW wharf is large enough to put deck chairs on it while watching the sunset or sunrise.

Keywords: Wharf, pristine lake, Park like setting, covered Post and Beam bbq area with full kitchen facilities outside with seating and two bars, 12 bar stools - fireplace with some wood supplied, use of two acres alongside creek going through property, paved road to property,

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

Why the Owner Chose Lake Cowichan:
Lakefront was always my dream and this property was enhanced with the creek that winds through the property and makes it even more magical.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The property is parklike with hedges on the water edge for privacy. This is property that is so private everyone that arrives comments on how unique it is. There is a Fern Walk with ponds on the top lot that people love to sit in and read.. many birds, ducks, squirls, owls, otters and mink wander through the area giving it a wilderness feel.
