We are in beautiful East Courtenay, just off the scenic Ocean view Route (Highway 19A), approximately 90 minutes north of the Nanaimo ferries (or 70 minutes via the Inland Highway), 10 minutes from the Comox Valley Airport and about 15 minutes from the Powell River Ferry Terminal.
Arbour Cottage is within walking distance from the unique shops and stores in downtown Courtenay, close to the Courtenay Aquatic Centre and North Island College.
If golfing is your passion, there are 6 golf courses, all within minutes of our B & B, including the world-class Crown Isle Golf & Country Club.
Many beautiful parks and hiking trails are just a short walk or drive from Arbour Cottage B & B. For those who enjoy skiing, mountain biking or hiking, Mount Washington, Strathcona Provincial Park and the Paradise Meadow Loop are only 40 minutes away. For our guests who like to ski, there is a shuttle bus to Mt. Washington, which is available for the months of December to April. For more information, please see the link on our page for Local Attrractions.
If water sports are more to your liking, you can kayak along the rugged ocean coastline or dip a canoe paddle in nearby Comox Lake, while you attempt to hook the wily trout lurking in its peaceful depths.
After a fun filled day, you can relax in one of Courtenay's excellent restaurants and bistros or enjoy a night out in one of the pubs that feature live local entertainment.
Whether you seek an adrenaline rush on an alpine slope, or the serenity of a secluded beach, the Comox Valley has something for everyone and Arbour Cottage is close to it all. It would be our pleasure to help you with your sight-seeing or travel plans in Courtenay and on Vancouver Island.
