There is a bus stop right outside our cabin which will take to you Lake Cowichan or continue on to the City of Duncan also know as the City of Totems. Explore First Nations history at the Quw'utsun' Cultural Centre, or the Cowichan Valley's rich food and wine culture. There are many different wine tours and tastings to choose from. The town of Duncan is also very walk friendly with lovely local coffee shops, a shopping center & food markets.

Our cabin is a great place from which to do day trips to many of Cowichan Valley attractions including the quaint little town of Chemainus which has a superb live theatre.

Great, comfortable retreat cottage in Youbou

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (2 adults, 1 child, 1 infant) had a great stay, the cottage is in a great location and only a 5 minute drive to Arbutus park, which has an amazing family friendly beach area.

The property has a wonderful view, clean and comfortable. The kitchen have every utensil required for my family and I to make home cooked food.

The beds were comfortable and the owner Tara was super helpful ad gave us advice on locations to visit etc.
