Escape to Tranquil 2BR Carriage House on 6 Acres and Lake

Escape the busy city life and relax in our warm and inviting Carriage House at Hidden Springs Retreat. We are located on 6 acres in the heart of farming country in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island and yes, our lake is perfect for swimming! We are 10 minutes from Courtenay and 25 minutes from the top of Mt. Washington. Minutes away you will find amazing beaches, golfing, great shopping and top restaurants featuring locally grown foods including our local award winning cheeses and wines. Or, if you prefer, our kitchen is fully equipped for you to prepare your own meals. Perhaps something purchased at the Farmers’ Market, 5 minutes away or you could go down to the Comox Dock and buy a freshly caught salmon or Halibut from a local fisherman…. Backing onto the forest, with views to the lake, the Carriage House is completely private. It is immaculate, beautifully appointed and completely self-contained. Imagine gazing up at the stars while you are soaking in the hot tub or sipping on a glass of wine (from a local winery just minutes away) while sitting at the edge of the lake or on your own covered and beautifully furnished deck. Our other wonderful amenities will help you to relax as you spend some time here at Hidden Springs.

Please note that Hidden Springs is a place of tranquility and peace and is meant strictly for the use and enjoyment of our registered guests only.

A little piece of heaven

I can’t even begin to explain how peaceful and relaxing our time at Hidden Springs was. We were greeted by the kindest owners, Dorothy and Bill who went above and beyond to make sure we had a nice stay. Little thoughtful touches such as a welcome basket and fresh flowers. The property is spectacular. Surrounded by trees. Very private. The private deck looks on to the forest. My husband especially loved the outdoor shower. He showered several times a day because it was so “refreshing”. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. And the bed was also extremely comfortable. It was easy to get a good nights rest. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing get away

My wife and I travel quite a bit – 10 countries over the last 18 months. We like to stay in homeshares when possible, and have met some wonderful and colorful locals this way. Dorothy and Bill, and what they have created at Hidden Springs, has made a lasting impression on our hearts . The pictures and reviews you see, while beautiful and kindly worded, cannot do this haven and its hosts justice. Long before pulling onto the property, you know you are someplace special – the verdant backcountry roads of the Comox Valley roll with warmth and an invigorating sense of adventure. Entering the grounds of Hidden Springs, you are immediately greeted by a rush of fresh air and at once the rising chorus of the forest and its animals, and a quiet and secluded zen. We stayed for nearly a week but could just as easily have stayed for the month. The Carriage House has any and all matter of needed amenities, and Dorothy and Bill were graciously available for anything that came up (including sharing a glass of wine over lovely conversation). Do yourself and your loved ones a favor – unplug from whatever ailes you during your day-to-day, and make time to visit Hidden Springs. If you’re anything like us, you will be glad you did – and eagerly awaiting a return visit. Thank you so much Dorothy and Bill!

We loved our Anniversary getaway at Hidden Springs

This little gem of a cottage is a 5* in its quality, cleanliness, amenities and comfort. We came to Hidden Springs for our first time in August 2018. Dorothy & Bill were so friendly, warm & welcoming during our tour of the property. The cottage is on the 2nd floor, bright, spacious and super clean. It had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. A very comfortable bed, full kitchen & beautiful furnishings & deck comforts. There is a lovely hot tub a few steps from the cottage. We didn’t end up using it, but it looked very relaxing. We were beyond impressed with this little gem, will highly recommend to our friends & family and definitely will be back!

Owner’s Response:

It was an absolute pleasure to have you stay with us at Hidden Springs…..and very lovely to see that both of you could have a very enjoyable 18th anniversary with lots of downtime after a very busy summer. Thanks for the lovely review and yes! We would love to have you back anytime!

This is truly an escape from the hustle and bustle of today’s world. We were so warmly welcomed and given a thorough tour and everything was exactly as expected. Communication was excellent and they checked in just enough to see that we had no questions with out being nosy. There was even a welcome basket with local goodies. We will definatly stay again if they will have us and take advantage of the lake for swimming next time!.

Great hidden gem that has left us with such a lasting impression!

This Carriage House was all that we could ask for over a much needed blissful Thanksgiving getaway for our little family (myself, hubby and 2+year old son). The property is tucked away in a quiet area surrounded by the peaceful sounds of nature…. And only 10 mins from town. Dorothy and Bill were beyond welcoming. Such a special couple that have left an imprint on my heart. They invited us over to enjoy their fire pit one evening and the hours rolled by with story sharing and laughter. Such a great time!

The Carriage House was quiet and cozy for us 3 – our son loved the place – and we felt immediately at home. The hot tub and outdoor shower was also top notch. The grounds were beautifully kept. This would be such a great place to come back to over the Summer (so we could enjoy their lake) but also would be great during the Winter as well. This getaway was all we needed to convince us that we would love to move to Courtenay. And we definitely plan on dropping by to visit Dorothy and Bill in the future.

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful Carriage House. It was an experience for the books! 💓

We need vibrant young people like yourselves and, as you discovered, it is a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family. Please keep in touch….we hope to see you again… warmed our hearts too. 🙂
