We are a retired couple who have lived in Sooke 17 years. We are avid outdoor enthusiasts enjoying horseback riding, hiking, biking, gardening and water sports. We have a small hobby farm (large vegetable garden, one horse, one mini horse and one fat cat!) and live in a quiet country setting of residential small acreages. We are next to the world renowned Galloping Goose bike/hike/ride corridor, a stone's throw from the beach and within a minute of Sooke's restaurants, museums and galleries. We are also close to well known swimming hole, the famous Sooke Potholes. We know and love this region so well; from the best hikes, where to rent sports gear, restaurant recommendations, fishing/whale watching/zipline information and all the great galleries! We have three craft breweries that proudly serve the west coast's best brew and a distillery, Sherringham Distillery, that just won the world's best contemporary gin award. If you enjoy birding, we can loan you binoculars and bird identification books. And if you enjoy reading, we have an extensive library in the B&B. We have so much to offer and look forward to sharing our little slice of heaven!
Exciting Update for 2021!! There is a new group of businesses that have opened on a shared site, almost completely across Sooke Road from us: Bike and Surf shops and a local craft brewery (Sooke Oceanside Brewery) which will be offering patio seating with meals. We are very excited to have a local eatery and brewery within walking distance, as well as a bike shop for all our guests who travel by bike on the Galloping Goose trail.
Our B&B is NO SMOKING and NO PETS please
Our accommodation includes a large bedroom with a queen sized bed and a child sized bed (as well we have a portable crib); as proud grandparents, we welcome children. There is a fridge, kettle, coffee maker, dishes, table for breakfast/meals (as well as garden seating) and microwave in the living area, as well as a cozy futon couch, chair and vcr/t.v. - lots and lots of good books. There is a spacious and bright bathroom with shower.
