Nestled in the tiny community of Sooke at the southern tip of Vancouver Island is Sooke Harbour House, one of Canada's leading ocean front resorts. Staying at this award winning Inn is always an amazing experience. This year, the Inn was awarded Winner of the Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor, voted among "the Best 500 Hotels in the World" by the Travel and Leisure Magazine Readers' survey, and awarded "Best Vancouver Island Restaurant" by Vancouver Magazine.
Frederique and Sinclair Philip, the owners of Sooke Harbour House, are dedicated followers of the Canadian Slow Food Movement. They pride themselves on serving "local, organic, seasonal and wild" ingredients with "over 200 edible herbs, greens, edible flowers and vegetables" from their abundant herb and flower garden which they describe as an "edible landscape". (Don't forget to sign up for their enlightening garden tour.) Proud supporters of local garderners, farmers, and fishermen, the owners serve a healthy West Coast inspired menu that changes on a daily basis.
The 28 guest rooms are all unique, one-of-a-kind designs inspired with local art, craftmanship and ocean themes, and outfitted with comfy beds, wood burning fireplaces, steam showers or soaking tubs, patios, and stunning views of the Olympic Mountains and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Amenities include infrared saunas, communal garden and patio area, beach access, and gorgeous windblown walking trails along the Whiffen Spit.
Staying at the Sooke Harbour House is experiencing the Pacific Northwest at its very best!!
