There was a large gift basket in our room, with loads of goodies. Plus there was chocolate on our night tables, and a big candy dish! Yummy! And fresh cut flower in our suite. The inside was extremely clean. and the beds looked brand new and very comfortable. Outside there were BBQs lined up in once section so those BBQ-ing... More

The place was very clean inside, and the outside very natural. We swam and all went tubing down the river. The water was a bit cold but very clean. In the evening we sat around a campfire--and the wood was free! Very friendly staff

If anyone wants a quaint romantic getaway or even a family weekend, I highly recommend this Lodge. It is absolutely beautiful anytime of the year and the caretaker Mabel is an absolute sweetheart. It is located right on a river and in a nice small community that has every thing within walking distance.

Location was ideal. #4 Suite was ok but not as clean as I would have liked. The pillows were flat as pancakes. Bedding was not clean. Looked like chocolate stains on comforter and pillow. We stayed a week and we did not have our bedding changed or made up once. The bathroom only had towels changed. Never cleaned until I... More

The on-site contact, Mabel, is a charming, accommodating lady. She went way out of her way to make sure we knew where everything was and that all our needs and desires were met! We were in the Spa Suite #5, and we could tell that someone went to a lot of effort to make this room warm and romantic. The... More

We have gone here a few times and are going again and can't wait. For the price, it is amazing and right on the river. The owners are awesome and totally friendly. There is a great fire pit to roast marshies/dogs on the fire and there is a dock and swimming right in the front. The suites are great, and... More

The location of this hotel is absolutely perfect! We arrived on a hot summer day in downtown Lake Cowichan and to our wonderful surprise our hotel was located right on the Cowichan River! The hotel backs right onto the river with a wonderful deck big enough for several guests of the Lodge to enjoy simultaneously. My two teenagers jumped right... More

This is our third stay and as always, it is a fine place to stay. The freshwater swimming was great even in Sept. We always feel we have great value. The suite has a full kitchen, comfortable eating space and some water views from the bed. There is a free gift basket in the suite that is full of goodies,... More

Beautiful location but not at all what we expected, it is a little misrepresented. Due to lack of private weekend accomodation rentals in Lake Cowichan, I landed on this place. We didn't really enjoy the river at all as there were so many people there, there wasn't any privacy. The complimentary firepit was surrounded by people(possibly other guests) drinking alcohol...

We decided to spend a few nights in my home town recently and with dad in tow went to the Boutique Waterfront Lodge. Having spoken to the booking agent in advance, I ensured our suite had two bedrooms and a functioning kitchen prior to arrival. I was a little concerned before arriving as I did not fully know what to... More
