i have booked vacations here over 10 times, over the past 12 years. I have always booked one of the cabins perched on the hillside overlooking the Straits of Juan de Fuca with the private hot tubs on their decks facing the view. I researched WHICH of their many types of cabins i wanted to reserve, before doing so, because not all their cabins offer the same amenities. The Studio cabins are small, but fine for a couple. They have all had wood burning fireplaces with rocking chairs, a little dining table, a small workable kitchen and a private bath, plus a comfy cozy Queen bed with fluffy comforters. The deck with the hot tubs have privacy walls so your neighbors aren't checking you out as you enjoy the beautiful view from the outdoor tubs.
We have repeatedly enjoyed high tea and dinner at the little restaurant on site. It's about a 1/2 hour drive into the coastal town of Sooke, where you can easily stock up on any groceries or other necessities, plus enjoy farmers markets, galleries and restaurants. Sooke Harbor House served us a very memorable wonderful gourmet dinner, one night- but it was expensive. I don't regret spending the $$$ there for a special evening. We have gone salmon fishing out off the Sooke Marina with a guide and Yes, we brought our catch home to our cabin and enjoyed the freshest salmon dinner ever with a group of family who had actually booked 4 cabins at the resort, based on our recommendation. If you ask at the front desk, there is a private beach area that that you can get a key to; It is possible to drive down to the beach where there is a beach bar BQ with a big fireplace under cover right at the water's edge. If you have disabled guests in your group this is a fabulous feature. Also there are lovely meandering trails down to the beach thru the woods. The staff restock your wood supply daily. They have always been delightful and gracious, but are available to offer assistance if you need help, mostly invisible otherwise. This is not the place for a party vacation. Its wonderful for a peaceful, relaxing very comfortable time out from our normal hectic lives. Bring a couple of books and a puzzle, some walking shoes and get ready to kick back. Stay at least 4 nights.
