Follow Highway 1, the Trans-Canada Highway, north from Victoria (note: Douglas Street becomes Highway 1). You will go over a small mountain pass called "the Malahat Drive".
Once you have come down from the Malahat Drive and have passed the signs for "Bamberton Provincial Park" and "Mill Bay Road/Brentwood Bay Ferry" turn left off the highway at the 4th traffic light, onto Shawnigan-Mill Bay Road.
Follow this road for a couple of kilometers and watch for the blue & white "B&B" sign on the right side of the road. Just after you see this sign, turn right onto Cameron-Taggart Road, and follow it until you see another blue & white "B&B" sign, and then our own sign on your right. Welcome!
Cobble House is centrally located in the Cowichan Valley, 45 minutes north of British Columbia's capital, Victoria. Centered around the City of Duncan, communities in the valley include Cobble Hill, Mill Bay, Shawnigan Lake, Cowichan Bay & Chemainus.
Cowichan (Quw ’utsun ’) means ‘land warmed by the sun ’ in the First Nations Coast Salish language. The Cowichan Region is known for its growing wine industry, so much so that we ’ve been called the ‘Provence du Nord ’ or the Napa of the North.
Follow Highway 1 south from Nanaimo. Once you have left Duncan over the "Silver" Bridge, travel about 10 km. (about 6.2 miles) and watch for the Valley View Shopping Centre on the left side of the highway.
At the traffic light, turn right onto Cobble Hill Road. Follow it past the village of Cobble Hill and towards Shawnigan Lake. About 1 kilometer past the village, watch for a blue and white "B&B" sign, turn left onto Cameron-Taggart Road at the "B&B" sign and immediately after "Earthly Delights" nursery.
Once you have gone over the small bridge on Cameron- Taggart, you will see a blue and white "B&B" sign on your right, just before you will see the Cobble House sign on your left. Welcome!
