Crown House Bed & Breakfast offers it’s patrons a sleep in a quiet oasis, within walking distance to downtown and recreation. Centrally located between Nanaimo and Victoria, and on the crest of the Pacific Circle Route, Crown House can be a quick stopover on a journey up or down the island or a hub for several days as you explore the grand Vancouver Island.
Crown House is located in the Cowichan Valley of Vancouver Island, just minutes walk to both downtown Lake Cowichan and the Cowichan River (great for tubing or swimming in the hot summmer months), across the street from the pristine Cowichan Lake and a short drive to Bald Mountain (and it’s hiking trails.) A little longer drive will get you to Cowichan Bay (small seaside village), Duncan (the city of Totems), or Chemainus (the city of Murals), while an hours drive will get you to Victoria or Nanaimo.
Cowichan Lake offers many hiking trails and even has a floating boardwalk.
We get our drinking water from Cowichan Lake (the pump house is down our street), and it is excellently clear and enjoyable. No need to spend good money on bottled water when such great lake water is on tap. Don’t forget to top up your travel water containers before departing.

Vancouver Island is usually buzzing with things happening from one end of the island to the other. To find some local events to immerse yourself in (be it an art gallery, a play, a festival, lecture, or a band) check out our events page.
Vacations are not always go go go, sometimes it’s nice to put the feet up and explore something new with just your mind. We offer three Apple Apps to entice your brain with.
