The Comox Valley encompasses the three communities of Courtenay, Comox, and Cumberland, each carved from the natural beauty of the surrounding forest and farmland. The area is renowned for its outdoor recreation opportunities which is maybe best exemplified every spring by the Annual Snow to Surf Race featuring snow shoeing, alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, running, mountain biking, kayaking, road biking, and canoeing. We have it all in the Comox Valley.
In addition to outdoor pursuits, the Comox Valley boasts world-class restaurants. Their mouth-watering fare is often locally produced from the myriad farms in the area.
The Comox Valley is one of the largest agricultural areas on Vancouver Island. Our Farmer’s Markets are held every week throughout the year – usually on Saturday mornings – and there is always great food and great music.
Music is another year-long attraction in the Comox Valley available at small venues like “The Waverley” and the 'Cumberland Hotel' in Cumberland, the 'Little Red Church' in Comox to three day long events like the Vancouver Island Music Fest held every July in Courtenay.
Year Purchased: 1974

Why the Owner Chose Courtenay: We're high on the hill on Lake Trail Road and close to Comox Lake and all the wilderness around it. Follow it far enough and Lake Trail will take you all the way to Port Alberni on the west coast (4 wheel only). Along the shores of the lake you can access great mountain biking trails, walk in the Comox Lake Bluffs Ecological Reserve or drive to the trail head for a hike to the Comox Glacier.
Wilderness at our doorstep yet we're just 5 minutes from down-town Courtenay
