Lori went out her way to make sure we had a good time. The house is beautiful and comfortable, with large guest rooms and a number of handsome shared spaces including outdoor seating with a gorgeous view. Parking is easy, just off the 14. A stepped trail to the beach is a gateway to wildlife including seals, seagulls, Canada geese,... More

Yesterday, my husband and I checked out of a 4-night stay at the Ocean Wilderness Inn and we had a really great experience! We stayed in the Pacific Panorama Room, it was large, clean, and had a good view of the water. The shower stall was a little small but the oversized soaker tub more than made up for it.... More

My son and I travelled here in late July and stayed for two nights. Our first floor room had a view of the ocean. The beds (twins) were comfortable and the room was nicely done. Everything was clean, and the breakfasts were excellent. The innkeepers were helpful and friendly. The location, with a path down to the beach, was wonderful,... More

My partner and I stayed here in early May. We booked the place based primarily on the opportunity to stay just one night. Given what we learned on our first trip, the next time we'll be staying longer! Suffice to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beautiful location, great amenities (including a place where we were able to cook... More

We stayed at this lovely B&B in August. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating and the trail to the beach was just beautiful. We really didn't expect the beach to open up and be as big as it was. We took a day trip to Botanical Beach and enjoyed the scenery immensely. The breakfast's were well thought out and... More

Thank you for the gift of this review. Even though we have little to do with how wonderful the beach is, except for maintaining the trail on our property to get there, we love knowing that our guests enjoyed it. It may be one of the first wilderness beaches on the trip out from Victoria. We were very pleased to... More

Nice place; bed and room and bath very nice. Loved the touch of high powered binoculars in the bedroom to be able to look out into the straits and shore of Washington. Breakfasts tasty and a bit offbeat. Nice hike down to the beach. Area is a bit remote, so come here for relaxing. A few nice restaurants in town;... More

Thank you, Bob, for the gift of this review.

We spent a week at this wonderful Inn! The highlight was the delicious breakfasts each morning. I travelled with my mother law and her gluten free diet was accommodated with expertise and a major yum factor. Location was peaceful, and serene with great views. I loved the hot tubs with a view of both wilderness and ocean. Beds were made... More

We have been back twice now, the second time as part of an impromptu family trip using 3 different rooms. We arrived early and were allowed to check in without any problems. The rooms were clean and bright, we were a bit "rowdy" at night (the family who laughs together ... ) but we were directed to a games room... More

My wife and I have returned to Ocean Wilderness Inn three or four times . We have always been made to feel welcome and special by the wonderful owner/ hosts.
