In 1938 the Kirk family built a beautiful home with spectacular gardens on the edge of the Courtenay River on Vancouver Island, BC. It soon became the destination for many Comox Valley social events.
In 1973 the home began its transformation into the Old House Restaurant and in June 1974, after a six month renovation by a select team of tradesmen using huge fir timbers, the wooden doors opened to welcome its first guests. With its riverfront setting and idyllic gardens, this Courtenay restaurant quickly became the destination for a great meal.
The development and opening of a Vancouver Island hotel in July of 2006, was a vision of a number of people who had been involved with the restaurant and area. It has evolved and developed as a “village centre” that now includes the original restaurant, a west coast inspired hotel with suite accommodations, a luxury spa called Oh Spa, a year round outdoor heated pool, hot tubs and meeting facilities. The location of the hotel is central to absolutely everything in the Comox Valley, and provides endless opportunities for Vancouver Island activities and adventure.
Courtenay’s Old House Village Hotel & Spa is proud of its Canadian heritage. Its West Coast aesthetic celebrates British Columbia’s unique coastal environment, and the hotels management team, R & R Property Management, took special care to resource furniture, art and even the wooden timber frame construction in Canada.
Today, the hotel welcomes guests from Victoria to Newfoundland, and as far away as Australia, South Africa, Jamaica, Israel, Hong Kong and other international regions.
