Shawnigan Lake cottage description

Located within a small resort community on Koksilah River, about a 5 minute drive from Shawnigan Lake, is this peaceful modern cottage with a south beach decor. Complete with a full kitchen, 1 bedroom on the lower level, cozy living room with cable tv and internet, large open loft above with 2 twin beds and a double futon this cottage will comfortably sleep 6. A full bathroom and private deck leading to the backyard with firepit for toasting those marshmallows, finishes off this quiet getaway.

When you're not busy hiking across the Kinsol Trestle, bike riding the nearby trails, or perhaps boating on Shawnigan, a short stroll down a private trail leads you to relaxing river swimming.
