Funky Old Cabin in a Rain Forest

For those who dream of owning a funky old cabin in a rainforest, one such cabin now exists and is looking for
an exciting new homeowner! Located on sunny Lake Cowichan on Vancouver Island, this picturesque log cabin
boasts approximately 450 square feet of breath-taking, rare, riverfront property and quirky log architecture. The location is perfect for past-times such as boating, swimming, and tubing with the lake practically on the front doorstep as well as being the ideal setting for adventurous year-round nature hikes through the nearby
rainforest, essentially in the backyard.


This funky log home is constructed of thick, original log timbers giving it a rustic, authentic flare of a certain woodsy timelessness, especially once entered through the artfully designed log archway leading up to the front door. Outside the front of the log home is a small covered deck, with sturdy log beams and carved wooden railings, which can host a barbeque and Adirondack chairs to admire the surrounding view. Its solid a-frame shaped roof protects the log cabin from seasonal rain and then from any snow from piling up with its weight.

Best of all, a combination of quaint small and large windows contain old-fashioned shutters allowing in
gorgeous streams of natural light to illuminate the roomy ground floor and loft. The loft is spacious, composed of wooden panelling, decorated wooden railings and a sturdy log pole ladder that descends down next to the kitchen area. The kitchen itself is built of rich wood panelling and tiled countertops, with enough room for a little gas stovetop.

Log beams and smooth timber flooring suggest the feeling of living in the great outdoors.


Because of its location on Lake Cowichan, this resilient log cabin is able to exist off-grid on its own unique water supply with an on –site freshwater well and hand pump. In addition, the cabin never gets cold due to its own robust wood stove which makes the ground floor and loft quite cosy during chilly days. As part of its rustic charm and making it one of the best log cabins ever, next to the cabin is a hefty log outhouse, providing plenty of privacy for those inside, and an outdoor shower.


Unique amenities include an actual log sauna, perfect for those cold, crisp days, a woodshed protected with an a-frame shaped roof and large enough to contain a long term supply of logs for the stove, and a unique log meat cache for the preservation of game or fish. Leading away from the cabin, the driveway is an adventurous unpaved road. It is the ideal space for a couple or for a small family wishing to reconnect with nature and enjoy fresh Canadian living.
