In the Area

Forty scenic minutes from Victoria, tucked behind the Malahat Range in the breathtaking South Cowichan River Valley. Adjacent to Canada’s finest boarding schools and B.C.’s newest wine region.

Enjoy golf, kayaking, hiking, whale watching, cycling, renowned wineries, cideries, breweries and distilleries.

An ideal day might be renting a Paddle Board for an afternoon of leisure and spending your evening savoring some bites at one of the many restaurants or pubs in the area, followed up by enjoying a bottle of local wine on the verandah afterwards.  Or meander through the farmers markets or a vintage shop in the village, and while you’re in the village grab a Oma’s Bakery treat and a delicious Shawnigan Coffee House coffee and head to the Shawnigan Museum or sit at the beach. We love to spend a morning exploring Cowichan Bay, grabbing some picnic items at the local cheese shop, stopping at Enrico Winery for a bottle of wine and a laugh with the owners and drive our to Kinsol Trestle for a beautiful hike and a picnic by the river.   The area has so much to offer, you can use the Manor as your home base while you experience everything the Cowichan Valley has to offer!

Located roughly 1 hour to all major airports & ferry terminals. Accessible by float plane as well, Marifield leads you to all the pleasures and adventure that beautiful Vancouver Island has to offer.
