What a beautiful place to stay the room was comfortable and I could sit for days watching the water. We enjoyed the beach trail and liked the hottub availability. The town of sooke was close by and there are a ton of trails to hike in the area.

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed February 28, 2017 via mobile

An amazing discovery! An awesome room, epic view (that gets even better if you venture done to the beach). The staff is kind and have a genuine interest in hospitality. They have worked out all those little details that other hotels seem to miss. You can show up and the stress starts to melt away. Absolutely looking forward to going...

A delightful place to stay! We attended a family wedding being held next door. Our hosts could not have been more helpful or accommodating to our group. Our room was very clean and nicely appointed. The views were just outstanding. We would highly recommend this as a great place to stay and enjoy the scenery.

Stayed here for 3 nights in August 2016. Height of the tourist season and unseasonably hot weather part of the time, but my pleasant room at this b'n'b and its quiet location outside of the main town of Sooke made for a great visit. The proprietors, Karen and Rick, were so friendly and gracious. The property is small but there...

Ours was a blind booking, but I've never been more pleased with accommodations. A big surprise was the breakfasts which I hadn't expected - and they were absolutely delicious.

This was a great place to spend a weekend. We were able to visit many places because of its location, from the coast to Victoria. The room was wonderful. The owners were great. They had great recommendations for places to eat and visit. They even told us were to find fossils. We would definitely visit again.
