About the property

Mallard Guest House is a great place to relax. Situated on the edge of the "Cowichan River" in the beautiful quaint town of Lake Cowichan. Biking, hiking, swimming, fishing, trails at your doorstep and of course, Tubing down the River or just float out the front. Walk in Riverfront. Approximately 1hr away from Nanaimo to the North and approximately 1.5 to Victoria to the South. Walking distance to all amenities. Great restaurants, pubs. Bring your Kayak/ Canoe or small boat as we are also about 10 min walk / 5 min drive from Cowichan Lake. This lake is a large deep fresh water lake right here in Lake Cowichan. Check out the town of Duncan about 30 min away. Lovely downtown area with shops to browse through and great eateries. Also, the Cowichan Valley has several excellent Wineries. Book a wine tour. Lots to do and see.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

What a great spot, it won't be a secret for long. Brenda had everything we needed and more, a short walk to the grocery store and restaurants we hardly used the car. We floated the river right by the house, even stoped in for a bit before continuing on. Drove to Port Renfrew to get our look at the "wild" side of the island only an hour away. Beautiful private lot, plenty of room in the house for our family we picked blackberries right outside and

made pies. We will definitely be back

Loved our stay and are definitely coming back

  • 5 of 5

The home is gorgeous, the property and river are beautiful. So much to do in Lake Cowichan, walking/bike trails and hiking trails, tubing down the river is a must in the summer.
