A 7 seater Jacuzzi outdoor hot tub is available for guest use. It features 4 therapeutic massage chairs and is ozonated to reduce our use of chemicals. It is a lovely place to soak and enjoy the view on cold fall and winter days. Please bring your own slip on shoes for use to get to the tub and back.
We provide organic homemade granola, yogurt and homemade fruit preserves as well as coffee and tea to enjoy in your room at your leisure.
Please note we are at the end of a bumpy, dirt road. Explore our hiking trails, go swimming in the ocean and perhaps catch a local music concert or theatre show. Just sit on the patio and read a book that has been waiting for you to find the time. Take your binoculars and look for birds on our acreage. Or just have a long deserved nap. At the end of the day, relax in our outdoor Jacuzzi hot tub.
There are numerous hiking trails on Bowen Island. Two of the most popular destinations are: Mt. Gardner, which rewards hikers with a breath taking view of the Sunshine Coast, Lower Mainland and Washington State; and the Killarney Lake Loop, which passes through awe-inspiring Red Cedar and Hemlock forest alongside the lake. The Killarney Lake Loop trail can be easily accessed from Bowen Island Hideaway. We would be happy to give you directions when you arrive.
For those with a greater sense of adventure there are four scuba diving sites on the island as well as kayaking and sailing tours.
Arts, Culture & History:
Many artists live and work here, inspired by the natural splendour of Bowen and the more leisurely pace of island life. Galleries can be found scattered throughout the island. Visitors can find everything from metal and wood sculptures to furniture, pottery and jewellery.
There are also a number of live music performances given throughout the year.
Bowen also offers many of the personal care services that its role as a retreat would suggest, including massage therapy and a full-service spa. Spa therapies can also be enjoyed in the privacy of your own room at Bowen Island Hideaway, just inquiry before you come.
While Bowen Island is a relaxing retreat for visitors, it still bustles with activity, particularly during the summer with festivals such as Bowfest, the Children's Country Fair, and the Summer Market which is open on the weekends.
Take time to visit the Gallery in Artisan Square, which promotes the work of local artisans and hosts temporary exhibits. As well, the Bowen Island Museum and Archives which contains collections focusing on the history of the island, from its role as a meeting place for First Nations people, to its formal establishment under Terminal Steamships and the Union Steamships Company, to its development today. Also on site is Higgins Logger cottage, the fascinating original dwelling of a 1940s logger.
This is an island; beaches abound. The most popular are Sandy, Tunstall Bay and Bowen Bay beaches, which offer amenities such as toilets, garbage cans, parking and easy access. Mt. Gardner Dock is a beach very close to Bowen Island Hideaway. Although not large, it has great views and is rarely visited, except by a few locals. Bowen Island Hideaway offers aqua shoes and beach towels for guests who would like to go swimming on our rocky shores.
There is also a 9-hole golf course open to the public.
