Lake Cowichan Real Estate

There aren't many locations on Vancouver Island that offer the cottage-like way of life that Lake Cowichan homes for sale offer. Just 27 kilometers from Duncan and 90 kilometers from the capital city of Victoria, BC, the waterside town of Lake Cowichan is the jewel of the Cowichan Valley. One of the warmest spots on Vancouver Island, Lake Cowichan is one the most sought after destinations for year round recreation and easygoing lifestyle.

The Lake Cowichan Lifestyle

The quaint community of Lake Cowichan offers tourists and residents alike a magnificent, natural area to sit back, relax and enjoy the best of what Vancouver Island lifestyles have to offer. At the east end of Cowichan Lake and with the Cowichan River flowing through town, the town of Lake Cowichan is a water lover's dream. While boating, fishing, swimming and windsurfing are obvious benefits of living lakeside, Lake Cowichan real estate offers so much more.
