Suite on Long Lake

  • 4 of 5

It is an excellent location right beside Long Lake; provides endless opportunities for people to use this place as a base to travel all over Vancouver Island, like Victoria, Tofino, Qualicum beach, Parksville, Rathtrevor beach. Or just sit beside the lake with beverage of your choice and enjoy the views. There are also endless parks and trails around Nanaimo that are within 15-20 minute drive of this place. All in all a great place; but only suitable for small groups that will accomodate upto 3 people max, so please plan accordingly. My only concern is that the Barbque is a little old and need/should be replaced.

Long Lake Getaway

I was in town with two daughters for a swim meet and this place was ideal. The owners are excellent hosts. We felt right at home. Beautifully appointed, lakefront, very private. Highly recommended!

Marvelous place

  • 5 of 5

Me, my wife and my son have spent one week in May in this marvelous place. Anne is a perfect host. The spacious interior and location on the Long Lake are amazing. You can swim, go boating or simply sit down on a bench and enjoy the wonderful views of this lake and surroundings. We've really enjoyed our stay and will definitively come back again.

Fabulous Girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

This lake front vacation rental was perfect for a girls weekend! The view is stunning, the suite very comfortable and the hosts were lovely. They gave us our privacy but were available if we needed anything. The property is in close proximity to shops, etc., but it was beautifully secluded. Fireplace, BBQ, coffee, comfy couches and a back deck, drinks on the dock....perfect! We plan to make it a regular getaway!

Must see for yourself - amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed in lots of self catering places, this tops the list, would want to return, the privacy of having our own place on the lake, helpful owners if needed. Shops within walking distance, however when in accommodation and on patio it's another world. Please go there as it is so difficult to fully describe the peace and welcome received.
