“Ja-dai-aich” meaning ‘outer island’ was the early Comox Valley Indian name for Hornby Island and the inspiration for our identity. It’s a simple life we lead here. The deer roam the orchard and the fields, and the panoramic views of the beaches, ocean and mountains are never taken for granted. Our name “Outer Island” defines the solitude and peaceful existence of this land as a retreat from today’s hectic urban world. It is a compelling place of intrigue and discovery.
The rustic charm of our ranch homestead, set on 14 acres of farmland, provides a tranquil atmosphere for our guests – a place to relax, rejuvenate and to see agricultural living first-hand.
Country living means green pastures, meadow grasses, cool breezes and bountiful harvests. We take great pride in producing delicious natural fruit, vegetables, herbs, chickens and eggs. One needs only to stroll through our orchard sampling the goodness to appreciate the difference true freshness makes.
We use only the finest ingredients from our own backyard in our cooking. Imagine a hearty country breakfast of farm-fresh eggs with herbs and vegetables straight from the garden, plump and juicy fruit so fresh it still has the morning dew on it, and the smell of oven baked breads with our very own preserves melting on top.
The simple life does not exclude modern conveniences that enrich one’s leisure time. We encourage you to lounge by our seasonal pool and enjoy a game of tennis with friends.
For your farm stay, we offer two private guest units. Our main Farm House is perfect for the whole family or groups of friends. Our cozy Quince Cottage makes the ideal romantic getaway or small group setting.
The house and cottage are available for weekly stays throughout the year. They are also available for shorter stays and B&B accommodations from September to June.
Both the Farm House and Quince Cottage provide high quality linens and towels, bathrooms with showers, a full kitchen, microwave, woodstove, TV/DVD/Stereo, Wi-Fi and ethernet, and coffee maker.
