Fantastic experience!
We just returned from Cowichan Lake after spending three glorious days on one of IHB’s house boats. We were two adult males along with four teenage kids. The lake was gorgeous the water warm and crystal clear and the house boat was extremely spacious and comfortable. The quality if service we were provided by Jeff at IHB’s was ‘off the charts’ good! We had a minor problem with the fresh water supply which eventually resolved itself, but Jeff almost insisted on finding us on the lake and resolve it, despite the fact that we were at least 10 miles up the lake from him and at ‘cocktail’ hour, no less! Highly recommend! You can bet we’ll be back...soon! : )
