"spoiled in a beautiful home!"
A great place to stay to either just kick back, stroll the many trails, or sit and enjoy the quiet. You can also take a drive north and visit a couple of small towns with delicious bakeries, lunch and coffee spots. If you crave more action, Victoria is only 30" drive away. Lastly, Della, our hostess, was warm and friendly and started our day off with […] the most fabulous, HUGE breakfast! Better than any run-of -the-mill "free" breakfasts offered at the chain hotels. Our room was immaculate, with a king bed and private bath. Clean towels every am and even made our bed. Also had use of the large rec room, complete with large screen TV, pool table, bar (coffee maker, electric tea kettle, frig just in case you want a late night snack. Highly recommend!

"perfect in every way.............."
Best B&B we have ever stayed at, and there have been many. As always we found ,thru our hostess, things and places to visit close by that we would have probably missed. Which is one of the reasons we prefer staying at B&Bs. Not to mention all the comforts of home away from home. We would gladly stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Melt all your worries away"
Della and Kevin were wonderful hosts. Rooms are cute with peek-a-boo views of lake, also included a suite area with a pool table, portable fireplace, bar area which was nice to relax in. Breakfast in the morning was a highlight of our stay - amazing crepes by Della while admiring the gorgeous lake view. Across the street is a dock which was nice, quiet […] and relaxing. Access to paddle boat, canoe. We had a wonderful stay - thanks Della and Kevin! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful B&B on Shawnigan Lake"
The Dragonfly Dock B&B is situated on Shawnigan Lake and has beautiful views. They have a lakeside deck and dock house, both of which afford lovely lake scenery. We felt very welcome, the Moose Lodge room was clean and comfy and had a private bathroom. Breakfast was gourmet and plentiful. We definitely recommend a stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Had a wonderful stay at the Dragonfly Dock. The hostess and family were very welcoming and went over and above with the service. The location was peaceful and so beautiful. The breakfasts were gourmet quality and the variety was incredible. Very rejuvenating place to stay. The only caution I would mention is the driveway is steep so apporoach on an […] angle if you have a vehicle that tends to 'bottom out'. Otherwise perfect setting.

Very pleased. Breakfast was particularly memorable. House was way nicer than I had expected. Everything as clean as could be. The pool table was an unexpected distraction!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was an exceptional B&B experience! The hosts were very friendly and personable. We got a tour of the gorgeous house and property, and the hostess pointed out things to do in the surrounding area. All guests are welcome to use their dock at the Shawnigan lake, to swim and use the paddleboat. The lakewater was just fantastic, clean and a pleasant […] temperature. Behind the house is a beautiful walking- running trail. Breakfast was very fresh and delicious. We wished we could have stayed longer, because this felt more as a resort than anything else.

"Two thumbs up!!"
모든 것이 만족 스러웠다. 특히 아침 식사는 개인적으로 대접받는 느낌이 들어 너무 좋았고 음식도 무척 맛 있었다. 앞에 펼쳐져 있는 호수는 추워서 크게 즐기지는 못했지만 뒤에 있는 트래킹 코스는 한적하고 집사람과 많은 이야기를 나눌 수 있는 좋은 곳이었다. 또한 저녁에는 포켓볼을 치면서 재미있게 보냈다. 원래는 다른 사람들과 같이 시간을 보낼 수 있는 구조이나 예약한 사람이 우리 뿐이라서 넗게 사용할 수 있었다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"En liten bit av paradiset !"
Jag var där men för mig mycket betydelsefull person. Hotellet ligger perfekt om man vill komma bort från allt. Genom att korsa vägen är du nere vid en underbar sjö där hotellet tillhandahåller en trampbåt och en kanot. Vill man inte ut på sjön kan man mysa i solstolarna eller som vi gjorde satt och tittade på den fantastiska stjärnhimlen och lyssnade […] på tystnaden. Eftersom det är ett B&B så är man i deras hem, dock avskilt. Rummen har hög en "hotellstandart" med underbart sköna sängar. Vi hade rummet med eget badrum men det gemensamma badrummet var lika fint. Grädden på moset var den underbart trevliga värdinnan som var så vänlig och lagade en underbar frukost och gav oss trevliga tips hur och vad vi skulle se eller göra. När dagen gått till sin ende så vad det bara att somna in i den skönaste säng jag någonsin sovit i. I just love this place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This B&B is a little slice of heaven. We visit Shawnagain on a regular basis as our children go to school in the area. The location is wonderful and the accommodations clean and top quality. The breakfast was to die for. First Class!!!!!!!!! We will be back.
"A Slice of Heaven"

One choice can make an entire vacation and for us that choice was to stay at the Dragonfly Dock B & B. We had planned to stay in the city of Victoria but the recommended B & B was full. So in searching on line we found Dragonfly and decided to stay 30 minutes outside of Victoria and have a combined lake and city vacation. Well, once we got to the the B & B and to their peaceful lake we never left. This places appealed to everything I love. Beautiful, immaculate accommodations. Della, a dream hostess and chef made breakfasts that were beyond, beyond. Not only a place to sleep but a large living room area and kitchen facility for our use. A hot tube and the lake area. Dragonfly is also surrounded by quaint fishing villages to visit. Several really good options for lunches and dinners. Hiking trails, whale watching opportunities and a fertile area where people offer their artistic crafts to you from glass blowing and pottery and art and artesian foods. If your should is fed by beauty, ditch the city and head on out to the lake.
"Fabulous & Tasty Lake Retreat"
05/14/14 TheTravellingMomYVR Vancouver, BC
What a treat to enjoy a weekend away from the city at bucolic Dragonfly Dock B&B, on the shore of beautiful Shawnigan Lake. The house is stunning, with views onto the Lake and a short walk down to the dock. Our room (Fishing Hole) was super cosy and the bed very comfortable. We had no issues sharing a bathroom, which is spacious, as is the kitchen and family room/den that we had pretty much to ourselves. The outdoor hot tub, set in the forested property, is fabulous and you feel pretty giddy sitting there relaxing while looking out onto the lake. The most wonderful thing about Dragonfly Dock are the hosts, Della and Kevin, and Della's incredible cooking skills. She is an amazing chef and the breakfast spread was better than most hotels we've stayed in. Eggs benedict, minted fruit salad, lemon-ricotta pancakes, puff pastry with caramelized onions & scrambled eggs - just wonderful cuisine. The Nespresso lattes were the perfect additional touch to a truly delicious and memorable stay. If you're in the southern Vancouver Island area, it's worth a stopover to enjoy the pleasures & hospitality of this excellent B&B.
"Fantastic! Above and Beyond!"
02/10/14 lynn341 Arlington, Virginia
Della and Kevin, the generous and thoughtful hosts of a beautiful bed and breakfast on Lake Shawnigan, could not have done more for us during our short stay last summer. Not only did they provide a clean, comfortable, well decorated room with a separate entrance and plenty of privacy, a three--or was it four--course breakfast with fabulous homemade pastries, omelets, and coffee, a hot tub and a sun-drenched dock over a crystal blue lake, but they were ready to do anything to help in an emergency. We tested their hospitality and good nature, when I had a shortness-of-breath allergenic reaction 50 yards off the dock. They had the ambulance there in no-time, drove my wife in our car behind the ambulance a half-hour to the hospital (to make sure she found her way) and had their son follow in convoy. It was a family project of humanitarian assistance. And then they followed up to make sure that all was alright. We were most grateful. So, while you don't need to have an emergency to make this a terrific place to stay, if you happen to have one, you couldn't find a more helpful crew to take care of you. It is a wonderful place--I'll aways remember the breakfast and the dock, and I'll be thankful for the extent to which Kevin and Della extended their hospitality when we were in need.
"Hope we can return one day"
12/29/13 S D S Plymouth, United Kingdom
We stayed here with our one year old on our last night on Vancouver Island and it was superior in every way to many 5* 'luxury' hotels we've stayed in. Shortly after we arrived, there was a power cut on Shawnigan Lake due to a storm. The owners were amazing as they rallied round with torches and candles; to be honest, it added to the great memory of our stay! The bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in & the breakfast was truly amazing. Sometimes it can be a little awkward staying in a b&b as you can feel as if you're intruding in someone's home, but that's certainly not the case here; the property is so spacious that the bedrooms are separated from the rest of the family home & when we did go up for breakfast, we were very warmly greeted. I would love to return one day. Top tip, if travelling with a little one take your own travel cot or you'll need to share the bed (we did the latter & still had a good night's sleep as it was so big).

I own and run a similar business, so I know a great hostess and a great establishment when I come across one - and Della and Dragonfly Dock B&B are exactly that ... GREAT!! I would not hesitate to return, nor to recommend to others - the food was amazing, the location is beautiful and the quality of sleep was sublime. We enjoyed interacting with the other guests ... sharing our adventures of the day, sharing a glass of wine and sharing a great game of billiards!! We'll be back. Thank you.

"You mean a bed comes with this breakfast? Wow!"
07/09/13 Keesden Edmonton, Canada
We called late in the afternoon, while in the area, and we were told we could only get one night. When we arrived we were so taken by the home and the gracious hosts, when we were offered 3 more nights we didn't hesitate. Such a beautiful home overlooking Lake Shawnigan, the Trans Canada Trail out the back door and ideal access to the lake from the dock out front. Della and Kevin are so welcoming they make you feel right at home and Della's breakfasts are a gourmet's delight. Oh and there is a hottub and a games room with pool table!
"Peaceful, private, comfortable and spotless with fantastic breakfast by Della."
We stayed the first weekend in July. My husband was very upset when he learned of our plans. By the time we left he was raving about how spoiled he felt. The home is spotless, comfortable and beautiful. The bedrooms are in a private quiet area with views of lake. Beautiful grounds with lots of places to relax. Dock with paddle boat and canoe across street. Lounging shaded patio directly on lake. Kitchen, pool table and chairs in living area just off bedrooms. The chairs are so comfortable you don't want to go to bed. And the breakfasts are delicious, freshly prepared and eaten overlooking the lake. Wish we lived closer so that we could return again. My husband said it was the best part of a week long vacation!
"Fantastic B&B in a beautiful location"
06/12/13 David J Portsmouth, United Kingdom
I can't recommend Dragonfly Dock enough. We were visiting Vancouver Island from Britain and travelled all over the island and Dragonfly Dock was far and away the best place we stayed. Della is a wonderful host who's meticulous attention to detail makes the Dock such a warm and homely destination. The facilities are great- they include a guest kitchen, communal TV area (as well as your own in your room), pool table, hot tub and access to a kayak and paddle boat down on the dock. There's plenty to do in the surrounding area to keep you busy, with Victoria and Butchart Gardens all within easy reach by car. Or you could just kick back and relax on Lake Shawnigan, which is absolutely stunning. The only regret we had with our stay was that we hadn't booked for longer. It was with a heavy heart that we packed our bags- and I've certainlly missed the amazing breakfasts Della creates!
"Wonderful sleep in the Moose Lodge room"
05/28/13 Finn_Mel Vancouver, Canada
Stayed here for two nights during the Shawnigan Lake Triathlon. Della accommodated us by making us breakfast very early so we could make it to the start just 3K down the road. Had a terrific soak in their hot tub overlooking the lake after the race. The second morning we could take our time at breakfast and enjoyed lattes, just baked apple strudel, peaches and blueberries and perfect eggs benedict. Della is a warm and friendly host and this is a great spot to stay while discovering the Cobble Hill and Shawnigan lake area. Dawn & Paul
