Ocean-front Inn located on the Salish Sea (Strait of Juan de Fuca) overlooking the Olympic Mountains. Our unique six suite retreat is perfect for a romantic weekend, hiking adventure, or just a relaxing get a ...More way from it all. Located about 60 minutes from Victoria on the Southwest coast of Vancouver Island. All rooms have refrigerators, as well as coffee and tea. Our lush garden is surrounded by majestic old-growth forest and a lovely stream that runs along our beautiful trail to a very private beach. Book your room overlooking the ocean or the rain forest. Our Inn is within the Pacific Marine Circle Route next to Muir Creek beach. Lots of fun things to do here: hiking, birding, fishing, surfing, seaweed gathering, kayaking, paddle boarding, kite surfing, whale watching, and beach combing to name a few. Looking for lower key? Then soak in the hot tub, and gaze at the spectacular views! Less

We are not so far distance-wise, 50 km away. We can see mount Olympus from our beach. But we are on the Canadian side of the Salish Sea outside of Sooke.
