"They were the most wonderful three weeks at the Strathcona Lodge on Shawnigan Lake. After 14 years of coming to the lake, finally on the "other side" of Strathcona Bay, where there is lots of sun. We will most likely come again - thanks Lesia for everything."

"Loved your 2 cabins - both are beautifully furnished, very relaxing and in a gorgeous setting!  Heaven!& Nobody could ask for more.  And I was blown away by your book selections in both cabins! I am a long-time serious reader so I know what I’m talking about! My sincere compliments to your “Book Selection Manager.”  I’ve never seen such a wonderful small selection of such a wide range of good books (classics both old and new) in one place! And there were even a few that I had never read! WOW! Thanks again for a great visit."

"Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday getaway for our family! The Cottage and setting were everything we hoped it would be. The children were so happy and comfortable in the cozy space, and loved our nature walks in the woods behind, where we went looking for all of the animals we seen in the pictures that hang on the walls of the cottage! My husband and I will always remember the exquisite sunset over the lake seen from the lovely porch. It was our best holiday in many years. Thanks a million!
