Creating community

At the Lakehouse we celebrate the local history and family memories of the property, while expanding our new venue that welcomes everyone with delicious food and excellent service. OUR MISSION is to provide our customers with not only a restaurant, but also a hub where people can come together, make memories, and enjoy the beauty that is Shawnigan Lake.  We will continue to explore and expand our venue offerings and create a place to celebrate, share, and enjoy.

WE VALUE the diverse groups of individuals within our community and beyond, and it is our wish that everyone feel welcome at the Lakehouse. Our casual atmosphere with excellent service makes it easy for all groups to enjoy; Families, friend gatherings, business retreats—all are welcome to come and enjoy everything the Lakehouse at Shawnigan has to offer.

Right in the heart of Shawnigan, the Lakehouse offers stunning lakeside views from the restaurant and three beautiful patios, as well as spacious grounds and a large dock.  It is the ideal venue for any occasion.
