Della and Kevin, the generous and thoughtful hosts of a beautiful bed and breakfast on Lake Shawnigan, could not have done more for us during our short stay last summer. Not only did they provide a clean, comfortable, well decorated room with a separate entrance and plenty of privacy, a three--or was it four--course breakfast with fabulous homemade pastries, omelets,...

We stayed here with our one year old on our last night on Vancouver Island and it was superior in every way to many 5* 'luxury' hotels we've stayed in. Shortly after we arrived, there was a power cut on Shawnigan Lake due to a storm. The owners were amazing as they rallied round with torches and candles; to be... More

We called late in the afternoon, while in the area, and we were told we could only get one night. When we arrived we were so taken by the home and the gracious hosts, when we were offered 3 more nights we didn't hesitate. Such a beautiful home overlooking Lake Shawnigan, the Trans Canada Trail out the back door and... More

We stayed the first weekend in July. My husband was very upset when he learned of our plans. By the time we left he was raving about how spoiled he felt. The home is spotless, comfortable and beautiful. The bedrooms are in a private quiet area with views of lake. Beautiful grounds with lots of places to relax. Dock with... More

I can't recommend Dragonfly Dock enough. We were visiting Vancouver Island from Britain and travelled all over the island and Dragonfly Dock was far and away the best place we stayed. Della is a wonderful host who's meticulous attention to detail makes the Dock such a warm and homely destination. The facilities are great- they include a guest kitchen, communal... More

Stayed here for two nights during the Shawnigan Lake Triathlon. Della accommodated us by making us breakfast very early so we could make it to the start just 3K down the road. Had a terrific soak in their hot tub overlooking the lake after the race. The second morning we could take our time at breakfast and enjoyed lattes, just... More

Stayed here during regatta week end. Great hospitality and delicious breakfast provided by Della. Slept beautifully in Moose Lodge room. Immaculate room and bathroom with all the amenities including bath robes to access to the hot tub. Dock is down the steep driveway and across the street, but is lovely and tranquil on the lake.

Wonderful B&B experience. The location is beautiful and very rejuvenating. There is a great hot-tub on the deck overlooking the lake. The accomodation was so comfortable and clean with lovely amenities. We stayed in the Moose Lodge which has a king bed with it's own wall mounted fireplace and flat screen. It was like a home away from home. The... More
