                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1990

                  About the owner: The Courtenay and District Museum, a regional museum serving the Comox Valley, operates the Capes Escape, donated to the museum by the late Katherine Capes. Throughout the year, we welcome visitors from around the world to this wonderful, well-kept home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Courtenay:
                  Creating a vacation rental--the Capes Escape--was the best way to honour the donation of a home and seven acre property while welcoming our many visitors to the museum and the Comox Valley.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The Capes Escape was completely refurbished in 2009, preserving all original elements of the historic home while providing comfort with renovations and refurbishments including modern kitchen, bathrooms and appliances. The Capes Escape has proved to be a popular gathering place and getaway for families and friends. Occassional events such as receptions and writers' workshops make it even more exciting. Trails and tall trees surround the seven acre property, which is only 5 minutes from Downtown Courtenay, 30 minutes from Mt. Washington and 20 minutes from the Comox International Airport.
