Shawnigan Lake

Car: Recommended

Shawnigan Lake is located in the Cowichan Valley, home to several wineries and small farmers. It is a cornucopia of fresh local food and excellent wine. Great network of quiet country roads for cycling, some routes more challenging than others.

The Cowichan Valley enjoys a mild climate, it is one of the warmest areas in Canada with little or no snow in the winter.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I am an avid cyclist who doesn't have enough time to ride, but I'm working on that. I live and work on site, so I'm available when you need me. I'm also very active in the community being on the Board of the local Rotary Club, the Chamber of Commerce and a small Charitable Foundation.

Why the Owner Chose Shawnigan Lake, BC, Canada:
I loved this house from the moment I first saw it 25 years ago. At that time it was the home of The Village Bed & Breakfast. The house and garden are right in the Village but amazingly private. Every day I think how fortunate I am to become part of the history of this house, to have the opportunity and pleasure of maintaining and restoring it.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Right in the middle of the action in Shawnigan Lake, but very private. A stone's throw from the public beach on the Lake. Bus stop within a block. Private parking for one car.
