About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Lake Cowichan Escape is a A-frame beauty on Lake Cowichan with peaceful lake views and water access with a private dock. This property offers four bedrooms and two bathrooms to suit all family and friend vacation needs. Amenities include two flatscreen tvs, wood burning fireplace, wifi, crib, pull out cots, ipod dock, hot tub, washer and dryer, gas bbq, water toys and a full equipped kitchen. The beauty of North Shore Road is its outdoor living space- a 300 sq ft deck with hot tub (that seats six) over looking the lake, private dock and walk in sandy beach; and to escape the sun; a peaceful back patio and lawn nestled in an established garden underneath a whispering forest.

The master suite is expansive- queen sized bed, office area and private deck soaring above the lake. Two more bedrooms upstairs have double bed and two single beds. If your view is not of the forest and garden, it is of the lake. The upstairs bathroom is new and modern, large and bright. Downstairs has one more bedroom with a queen sized bed, and another full sized, modern bathroom.

Lake Cowichan Escape is wonderfully situated - a short walk to the boat launch and all the amenities the town has to offer, but also far enough away from the centre to fully feel away at the lake. Your own dock gives you access to 37 kilometeres of pristine lake, and endless recreation possibilities- famous tubing on Cowichan River, endless hiking options, swimming, kayaking, jetski rentals, hunting, fishing and much more. Come make Lake Cowichan Escape your home base for all your vacation needs.

Please note that term rates apply for the summer peak season period only unless booking within 21 nights of arrival. Nightly rates will vary dependent on the term rate value and the length of stay required. Term periods run from Saturday to Saturday.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was exactly what it looked like in the photos and the private dock was closer than we thought. The house was clean and tidy with plenty of room for 6 of us. The hot tub was in great condition and we used it alot as the lake was cold. We ran out of BBQ gas on Wednesday. Didn't find a second tank anywhere. The Roman blinds in the bedroom downstairs were not strung properly so we didn't try to use them. Also, my father in law was very disappointed that there was no cable to watch the Olympics on and the news, it was stated there was cable tv provided on the website. For this I feel that the vacation enjoyment was short of our expectations but the rest of the family enjoyed the house and lake immensely.

Property updates were great. Only comments would be that the equipment in kitchen could be updated, path to dock should be corrected including the removal of dead trees (one fell close to dock and boat while there).

Reviewer Comments:

It was a comfortable house across a double yellow lined street from a private dock & beautiful lake. The street is noisy & busy & treacherous. The house driveway is hidden so each time you leave it you feel lucky there wasn't any traffic. We enjoyed ourselves & liked the area. The only criticism of the house is the table only had 4 chairs which doesn't work when it's supposed to be for 8.

Lovely home; great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! We went with the intention of getting a few days of Vancouver Island tree therapy and lake swimming and this place was ideal. The backyard is like an oasis of BC cedars and, rocks and plants with plenty of grassy space for kids to run around if you're on a family vaca. In the front, the balconies are wonderful for coffee and breakfast in the morning (I especially appreciated having a blender!) or an evening barbecue and twilight soak in the hot tub. The private dock across the street was a great place to lounge in the heat and cool off with a swim in the lake. The home was clean and well maintained with contemporary decor - it had all that we needed for a comfortable, peaceful stay. I'd definitely stay here again.

Reviewer Comments:

The house itself was lovely ( in need of a vaccum which I did and found a dozen kid toys and knitti g neddlez under the couch) however the location was not. To get to the dock meant crossing a road (this was included in the description) however there was a blind curve so crossing was tricky. The walk down to the dock.was treacherous and in need of repair. The dock was brand new but the building material trash was dumped on the beach which made it unusable.

Having said that my biggest complaint is with EMR.

When we arrived our staff person was unavailable so we met some woman. She was unfriendly and knew nothing about the property. After 2 nights we decided we had to leave given the danger of the lcoation and dock situation (we have 2 little ones)

When we notified EMR they arranged for key to be left and then we never heard a thing. No follow up or concern from EMR other than rate us.

So $2250 for 2 nights and no follow up...I will not be using your service again.

Manager responded on 7/20/2015:

Thank you for your review. We wish to address a number of the points made about the property mentioned by the review we believe are inaccurate and unfair to the property. The walk (across the street from the house) down to the lake is a good trail (not treacherous) and very short. I guess if guests are inexperienced being in cabin country a short unpaved forest trail may seem a little daunting. The dock was upgraded (for guest use) and to the side of the beach there was a small wood pile from the completed work. It was not in the way of using the beach. The metal object is (as seen from the photos in the listing) a metal anchor used for the dock. There isn't a blind corner to cross the road to the lake from the house. Google Street View shows a good 300 plus metres both ways as a line of sight. We are thankful to hear this guest enjoyed the inside of the property. The original complaint raised was a baby ball rolled under "a" couch and they found a small bag of kids toy bits and a crochet needle. We are sorry this was missed by our cleaners and will not happen again. The guest had arrived early from their scheduled check in time, thus the greeter had to scramble to get someone over to let t
