“Trail’s Nest Cottage was awsome-all 8 of us were very comfortable and found everything we needed! We had a great time staying here! The Botinical Beach was very interesting but I think we enjoyed Lizard Lake the most! The kids loved playing on the log and catching the ‘lizards’! Thanks for the lovely place to stay!”

“We spent our time here hanging out with our kids and exploring the Jaun de Fucca trail and China,French and Botinacal Beaches, We were able also to see the salmon spawning at Charters Creek in Sooke and to exlore Lake Cowachin and the Cowachin Valley Footpath. We saw elk in the front yard, a big raccoon go under the cottage. seals, a bear, a snake and an eagle. We had rain and sunshine both. The cottage is spacious, yet cozy, well-supplied, and very comfortable. Thank you Sharon and Paul.”
