Old House Hotel

4 Good Program

Respectfully and gratefully we also acknowledge that we live, work and play on the unceded, traditional, beautiful and bountiful territory of the K’omoks First Nation.  We are so fortunate, and we enjoy giving back in ways that bring resilience to our community and our planet.

We are on a Sustainability mission.

The Old House Hotel earned its Biosphere Sustainable Certification by the global Responsible Tourism Institute in December 2023.  This recognition is achieved through a thorough auditing process which verifies our sustainability-related activities and operational efforts. Having made outstanding progress within the 17 Sustainable Goals (SDG’s) blending social, economic and environmental action, we have demonstrated that we are nurturing a culture of sustainability within our organization and among our network of friends, visitors, colleagues and community. But our work does not end here! We will be creating new programs, exploring new ideas and realize this pursuit is ongoing and critical for our personal and organizational resilience and growth. Learn more.

Our sustainability-related activities and operational efforts


We care about our Wildlife.

Across the Courtenay Estuary on which we are located, lies one of the area’s most exciting restoration projects. As a Diamond Sponsor, the Old House Hotel is proud to be part of Project Watershed’s effort to restore the Field Sawmill site back to a vibrant and productive salmon habitat.  The pavement is gone, and native planting and landscaping are underway.

We care about our Environment.

We strive, daily, to be as green as we can be.  To date our programs have earned us a 3 Green Keys Eco-rating by Green Key Global.  Our Sustainable Operations Committee continually looks at the way we do business to ensure we use eco-friendly products, conserve energy and protect our environment.

We care about our Community.

YANA, a community organization named after these words:  “You Are Not Alone,”  symbolizes a  beautiful approach to those struggling in our community.  We are truly proud to be supporters of YANA as well as numerous charitable organizations right here in the Comox Valley, Vancouver Island and British Columbia.
