Read the following to see what past guests have written about Lakeview Homes

This was a great place to stay and a treat for us to have extra bedrooms and bathrooms, and the house was so nicely furnished.  A bonus to be able to use the kayaks and paddleboat. We enjoyed our evenings here on the water of Long Lake, after our day trips and sightseeing the surrounding area.  Our trips included Horne Lake Caves, Qualicum Beach, Englishman River falls, Little Qualicum Falls, the Salmon Ladder at Stamp River and Cathedral Grove.  Can't forget the goats on the roof in Coombs.  Thank you so much for your hospitality and wonderful home.

We had a fantastic holiday.  All of us really enjoyed staying in both houses and do not want to have to go home! This is our second trip here and we will be definitely be back.  Thank for everything. 
Rob & Sharon, Jersey, Channel Islands (September 2008)

We had a wonderful time in this beautiful house on the lake after touring around from Calgary through the Rocky Mountains to the West Coast. There were so many nice places to visit, Victoria, Wickaninnish Beach in Tofino.  We enjoyed staying at this house and felt really at home, everything was perfect.  Thank you so very much and all the best

Our family enjoyed this lovely home on the water! We really enjoyed the canoe and paddle boat.  we also had fun playing many rounds of cards at the table.  If we ever return to Nanaimo in the next few years, we would love to come back here to stay.  Thank you for such a beautiful spot.

We had a great stay. This was such a good central location to tour the island.  The house was very nice, the view exceptional.  We would recommend this spot to our friends.

You have made my lengthy stay here so incredibly comfortable. It was my serenity to come home in a chaotic world. I loved waking up to the incredible view every morning. I appreciated your hospitality and would highly recommend without hesitation Lakeview to all my friends and family.
All the best,


Thanks for a great time at the lake. I can’t wait till next time. The location is perfect - all the comforts of home. Next time, we’ll get out on the lake, we did however get out on the ocean twice to prawn, crab and fish. Our friends came to visit and loved the house and the view as well. It was like entertaining at our own home. Fantastic!!

Just want to thank you for the fantastic reunion we enjoyed the houses on the lake and all it had to offer. This was a reunion that will long be remembered and talked about. It was great!
Thanks so much,

Dock on Long LakeThanks for letting us stay in your beautiful lakeview home. We really enjoyed the open concept so that we could yak while cooking and others took care of the kids in the living room. The large master bedroom was fantastic as it fit the entire family and room to spare, although we had two other rooms. We also enjoyed going out on the paddleboat. The kids had a lot of fun. In conclusion, all three of our families had a lot of fun and we’ll be sure to be back in the future.

Just wanted to thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your lakeview home. From the moment we walked in the front door, we felt at home. Our kids really enjoyed the swimming and throwing rocks off the dock and it was so wonderful being able to have grandma walk down for visits. We look forward to our stay next year.
Tanis & Quintin

It’s been terrific having a “home away from home” being able to relax, fish on the dock, a late night swim - all perfect. The kids loved being towed around the lake was an added bonus, as were the fresh flowers in a vase that were here upon arrival, making us feel truly welcome. When we are here next, we’ll know exactly where to stay and we’ll recommend this place to anyone that needs a place to stay in Nanaimo. Thanks till we meet again,

Open concept kitchnWe have had a wonderful stay. The lakeview home is beautifully decorated yet still homey. We loved the open concept allowing our small children ample room and still being able to keep an eye on them. My son loved fighting for giant “ fighting marlins” off the dock and we all enjoyed the beach and all the sights which are close by. Thanks and we hope to one day be able to return.

We have had a fantastic time at this wonderful house on Long lake WOW – we don’t want to go home. The boys have caught 18 bass in the lake and have really enjoyed fishing, using the paddleboat and kayaks. A blissful way to spend a week – we wish we had longer here. Thank you for such an enjoyable stay. One way or another, we will be back!!!!!!!!

PS A big thank you for taking the boys out in the speedboat!

We had an excellent stay at the lakehouse of elegance. Wow, the view couldn’t have been better with such a gorgeous house. Thank you so much! The water was flat, but we surely fixed that with barefooting, was excellent!!!! Happy Barefooting.

Since 2001 we have enjoyed each successive year. Superb facilities you have provided to your visitors. This is why we have kept, and will continue to keep returning. The beautiful island, the weather and the hospitable community. We appreciate the accommodation and the owners' hospitality.

We have had a fantastic time. House was great – really well set up no problems at all. You couldn’t have been more helpful. The Island is beautiful and we don’t want to go home! We are sure that we will be back again.

“ Home away from home”! This home suited the needs of our family perfectly. Your town is ever changing and your waterfront home very impressive. We enjoyed the accessibility by ferry to Gabriola Island, sea plane to Vancouver, and access to all the small hidden treasures along the way. Your home on the lake provided us with comfort and relaxation. I thank you for the natural and peaceful surroundings. We will highly recommend it.
The McIsaacs
