Bear Mountain, Canada’s urban resort community, is an Ecoasis resort & golf community, and is one of the few places in Greater Victoria where you can golf, hike, bike, play tennis, spa, dine out, or shop, all within a charming village atmosphere and only steps away from our featured property.
Just 20 minutes away from all that Victoria and area has to offer, Bear Mountain and #401-1400 Lynburne Place, will capture your heart and imagination. One of the best addresses on the island, living here truly embodies the “Westcoast” lifestyle.
Bear Mountain is one of the most luxurious and sought-after communities in the area. Breath-taking West Coast architecture and lush landscaping is anchored by the only back to back Nicklaus golf courses in Canada. As well, Ecoasis and the community are dedicated to sustainability and to creating a connected and progressive community. Part of this plan includes creating and preserving much of the area’s green spaces. Parks and green space reduce pollution, raise property values, and provide a venue for the entire community to stay active. Many of the parks throughout the municipality are connected by the City's award-winning Trail network.
We really love the juxtaposition of nature in the Highlands, with urban vibrancy in Langford. It’s a truly unique combination and each offers highly desirable lifestyle choices that enrich the character of the overall community.” – Dan Matthews, Managing Partner and Founder of Ecoasis
Besides boasting an abundance of parks and trails, Bear Mountain offers several options for boutique shopping, inspired dining and luxurious pool and spas, frequent cultural events, plus enough recreational activities (golf, tennis, hiking, cycling, running and swimming) to satisfy even the most active outdoor enthusiast. There truly is something here for everyone.
Featured Bear Mountain Attractions
There are so many pretty, different, unique places to live in Victoria and Bear Mountain is one of them. My husband and I have lived on Bear Mountain for the past 4 years and we love it.
Being a Realtor means I’m out and about most of the time, but when I’m home, I like to enjoy what the Mountain has to offer! The peacefulness and mountain air… ahhhh!
These are some of our favourite things to do:
Dining and Entertainment
After a good hike around the mountain, we work up a thirst! We will often head over to Jacks Place, a great neighbourhood Pub… feels a little bit like Cheers - when you walk in there, everyone knows your name! It’s awesome!
They have all the favourite things on the menu, including a savory selection ranging from wings, burgers, wraps, pizzas, pasta and the biggest surprise? They offer the best Sushi... yup I said Sushi!
Jack’s Place also offers a sampling of specialty beers from draft to bottled plus a large selection of wines and a fabulous outdoor patio. It’s also become a popular spot for special functions, BBQs and weddings. Inside, you’ll find large screen TVs and a games room that includes a pool table and various other games. During the summer months, there is a white sand outdoor beach volleyball court. And for when you just want to hang out on your patio with friends, there are of course several beer and wine store options.
Every week the Westin hosts an intimate gathering where their experienced Sommelier handpicks a wine region and features a well or not-so-well known vintage. This is when you get to feel sophisticated! Get dressed-up and head down to the wine cellar to sample wines from all over the world! The wines are always different and the sommelier is very knowledgeable! Complete with cheese and canapés this fun evening makes for an unforgettable experience! A great way to spend a Friday night.
In support of live music in Victoria, the Masters Lounge and Westin Patio hosts live music featuring local, renowned or up-and-coming artists.
Salons and Spas
Twist Hair Salon is a full service hair, nails and waxing salon provided in a unique, relaxing and elegant atmosphere.
Amatista Spa at Bear Mountain, a spectacular new spa at the Westin, combines the natural serenity of the area with state-of-the-art technologies to create an idyllic mountain escape.
On Saturday mornings, we enjoy taking the dog to head over to the Mountain Market. It’s a little coffee shop and market in the village that offers fantastic coffee and fresh sandwiches. We like to pack a little lunch and go for a hike… could be the best way to work off the wine headache from the Friday night wine….yikes! #mountain.market
Just a short drive off the Mountain, located in the heart of Langford, is the Goldstream Farmers Market. Every Saturday, from May to October, you’ll find locally-grown and locally-processed agricultural products and creative, artisan crafts.
Easily, the most popular attractions here are the two world-class Nicklaus Golf Courses: the rugged, challenging Mountain Course and the more serene Valley Course. Combined, these two courses represent the only 36-hole Nicklaus Design golf experience in Canada. All fees for both courses include power cart with GPS, club valet and club cleaning services, and warm up balls on the practice facility.
Another popular recreation amenity, is Canada's largest indoor/outdoor red clay court tennis centre.
A mecca for trail and cross country riding and chosen by Cycling Canada as their year-round training grounds for the National Mountain Bike Team, the bike park at Bear Mountain is open for riding every day of the year. Experience the network of intermediate to advanced west coast single track, sweeping flow lines, and scenic climbs.
Fitness and Swimming
The North Langford Recreation Centre provides premium amenities and a variety of health and wellness opportunities for all levels of fitness. Featuring ladies only & co-ed gyms, group classes tennis, year-round heated outdoor pool and hot tub and more. During the Summer months, you can relax cabana-style at the poolside restaurant.
