A wonderful overnight stopping place on the coast road close to three national park walking areas - most notably the East Sooke Park with its magnificent coastal trail through ancient forests. The Inn provides a B&B service and is notable for its large ensuite rooms, its comfortable beds and the discreet warmth of the welcome from the inn-keepers, Andy and... More

Original log building with new extension for rooms. Ensuites and larger rooms throughout. Hot tub outside. View, wildlife, and walk to beach. Hosts are very charming and helpful. Breakfast is superb. Very quiet location somewhat West of Sooke (the further West you get the quieter it is, bigger the ocean breakers, and the better the view), near Shirley. About a... More

We stayed at the Inn at the end of July. We arrived via motorbike and, after checking in, we sat drinking a glass of wine, in chairs overlooking the ocean. Lori and Andy have made the inn a relaxing, comfortable retreat for their guests! Our room, which was based on a Mexican theme, was spacious and was equipped with a... More

Thank you for the gift of this review. We are so pleased that you had a relaxing and peaceful retreat. We are aware that some guests would like having a TV in the room. Most guests, as it seems you found, appreciate not having one (once they get past the original surprise of being without). Thank you for staying with... More

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

Thank you for the gift of this review. I am so pleased you had a peaceful stay. The Pacific Panorama is one of our most popular rooms, for the reasons you mentioned, the size, the view, the soaking tub, and the king bed. We wish the showers were a bit bigger too! Perhaps in the next remodel... Thank you for... 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

Thank you for the gift of your review. It is very satisfying to hear that you enjoyed your room, the beach and breakfasts. Our location on the main road used to be a benefit for the previous innkeeper (in a pre-internet age). Fortunately, traffic usually quiets down nicely at night. We have been curious why the previous owner selected the... 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.

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.

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
