Union Bay’s Two Eagles B&B named Family Business Excellence award finalist

Trevor McCall, president of Family Business Association (FBA) of Vancouver Island, is pleased to announce that Two Eagles Lodge B & B in Union Bay was one of two finalists for the 2019 Family Business Association’s Family Business Excellence (FBE) award.

The awards were presented at a gala ceremony at the Union Club of BC, Victoria, on Feb. 13.

The awards are given annually by FBA to recognize youth leadership and to celebrate and promote achievements of Vancouver Island family businesses and the considerable contributions they make to their local communities.

Proline Management Ltd, with offices throughout the Island, was the 2019 award recipient. Victoria’s Bliss and Be Love was the other finalist. All received engraved crystal awards.

Two Eagles Lodge is a waterfront bed-and-breakfast in the Comox Valley, which started with the purchase of 12 acres of forest, a vision, and a dream. The lodge was designed and built by Carolyn and Steve Touhey. They greeted their first guests in 2007.

Together, their aim was to ensure guest privacy balanced with space for socializing, to showcase the million-dollar view of the Coastal mountains, islands, and Salish Sea; and to be Island ambassadors for guests…helping guests “make new friends and great memories in paradise.”

The Touheys’ seven-year-old grandson, Robbie, is also becoming involved in this family adventure. He spent last summer at Two Eagles, serving as the kid-guest ambassador by sharing toys and playing; he is also the “recycling manager” who is responsible for sorting recyclables.

Two Eagles Lodge has become an internationally acclaimed and award-winning lodge, including TripAdvisor’s Hall of Fame, Vancouver Island Business Excellence for tourism, Vancouver Island Better Business Bureau awards, and The Comox Valley Record’s Readers’ Choice awards, among others.

The Family Business Association Vancouver Island’s Mission is “To promote the sustainability and growth of Vancouver Island business families by providing education and support through community and shared experience.”
