About The Owner

Hi, I'm Brenda, I have enjoyed the cottage for the last 25 year with my family. Having recently retired I have moved from the mainland into the main house on my property. I now rent out the cottage so other families can enjoy the river's tranquility and beauty, like my family has over the years.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1981

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this lovely property which is right on the river with tremendous views. Lots of wildlife to be seen and enjoyed. It is a lovely log cabin, really quiet and only a five minute walk into town.

Brenda was very welcoming and helpful.

A great place to stay and enjoy some real Canadian life.

Cozy and perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at the riverside cabin was amazing and Brenda was warm and welcoming. We loved the wood stove and hearing the sound of the river while we fell asleep. Would definitely recommend!

Couldn't have been better

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the river. The cabin is extremely functional, clean and with many well thought out little details. Probably the best stocked kitchen we have ever had in a rental. It is obvious that he owner takes great pride in caring for the cabin as well as the entire 2 acres it's situated on. The owner is very pleasant and helpful and is probably the only other person you will see once you check in. The only noise was the river flowing by and the odd dog bark, we never even heard a car drive by, yet it's only a 2 minute drive to the centre of town. My wife and I highly recommend this cabin and we look forward to returning.

Great place, friendly host!

This is a really beautiful property! The cottage is well cared for and clean. The fire in the wood stove was a nice welcome. Beds and bedding were really comfortable! Loved the deck overlooking the river. We will be back and will book three nights next time ;)

Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with Brenda last week and have to say how perfect the cabin was.

Breakfast on the deck overlooking the river great.

Everything you need was in the cabin(WiFi/cable/netflix).

Woodburner(wood Included)fantastic-you won't be cold!

Local town 5 mins away and has bars/supermarket/subway/fuel

Duncan 20 mins away has everything

Do not miss the whale watching at cowichan bay with ecotours-worth the flight on its own,and good value for 4 hours.

Would not hesitate to go again-you will not find a better(as imagined)log cabin.

Thanks Brenda and the dogs!

Very nice cabin right by the river. The cabin is well equipped we even found several games to play.

  • 5 of 5

The hostess Brenda was welcoming and very helpful. She lit the fire before we arrived to warm up the cabin.

It's a large nice property right by the river. Brenda kept the cabin clean and comfortable. Layout was great, shower and kitchen worked well.

I look forward to coming back here soon. Thanks

Spend an afternoon floating or tubing down the Cowichan river and arrive right at the cottage.

We are located 10 minutes away from Skutz Falls Provincial Park. Spend a day hiking in the West Coast Rain-forest.
