Welcome to the farmhouse! Your hosts describe life on this 26 acre farm as living in a calendar. It is a scenic, relaxing location that has left many a guest coming back for more.
This 1930's farmhouse has been renovated to reflect the full beauty of this rustic home and decorated in a breezy french farmhouse manner. This 3 bedroom, 1000 square foot, art filled home is light and airy with comfortable furniture to encourage laughter and conversation. This fully separate home is yours to enjoy.
The chef's kitchen is ready for you to take on your culinary experiments as you bring home tasty locally grown treats to experiment with complete with everything you might need including a convection oven and dishwasher.
The bookshelves are filled with books and games making sure you have plenty of ways to entertain yourself and unwind or play Bocce outside on the vast lawns.
From here you can explore the whole valley and all the foodie, outdoor or beach delights it has to offer. It is a central yet rural location: not so far from city amenities without having to be stuck in a city.
You are a mere 950 meters from Kitty Coleman Beach and Provincial Park, a beautiful walk down the road to this scenic water location, 20 minute bike ride from Seal Bay Park or a quick drive to Miracle Beach. Or stay on the farm, walk to the creek and sit on a bench under the old maple tree, visit with the donkeys or perhaps the lavender gardens for some 'aromatherapy'. This place has it all for you!
Your hosts are onsite in a second home with a field and barn separating you. They are there if you need them but have lots of privacy.
We appreciate your interest in our vacation getaway. Your booking goes to support the agricultural endeavors on this farm.

BC is home to over 187 species of butterflies, more than any other province in Canada, and with all the fertile soils and committed gardeners you are sure to see your share.
Oh but wait, perhaps butterflies aren't your thing… how about wine? Vancouver Island, and the Comox Valley have a burgeoning wine industry, so why not take a wine or meadery tour? Perhaps go for a sail, rent a bike, hit a golf course or visit a museum, gallery or two.
There are so many festivals to take in; The Filberg, Sandcastle Festival, Campbell River Shoreline Arts Festival and so much more. And after all that activity, you don’t want to miss going to one of the many spa’s, we recommend the Hydropath. Of course you will want to do some shopping, make sure you take some chocolate and pastries home to The Farmhouse for later.
Finish it up with wine and award winning cheese from some of the Valley’s finest producers at home on the deck, watching the sun change to stars in this peaceful, light pollution free location.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Your hosts Brian and Mariette bought the farm in the 8th year of a 5 year plan. They made it out to a place where the climate is better and the growing season longer so that they could grow organic food for their neighbors and community and connect more closely to the rhythm of life.
Why the Owner Chose Courtenay, BC, Canada:
The 26 acre farm was lovingly built and cared for by the original owners and it was evident when the couple saw it. A beautiful barn, two fantastic houses, fences and outbuildings so well maintained they worried they might not be able to do as well. But the place because a must have when they walked down through the pasture to the creek and found themselves in 8 acres of beautiful rain forest.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
This relaxing space has everything, forest, fields, lots of sunlight, beach location but yet privacy. Every guest we have had thus far has said the same thing 'I have never had such a relaxing vacation'. The nights are filled with stars because of the lack of light pollution, the mornings are filled with the chirping of birds or the barking of seal lions because of the lack of noise pollution. The water is spring fed from wells on the property and tastes like water should. When in season the raspberry bushes provide a deliciousness, the garden provides bounty and the lavender provides a calming scent throughout the farmhouse. Oh and donkeys, three of them!
