We were enjoying great hospitality, lovely rooms and wonderfull breakfast during our stay. We visited Botanical Beach and China Beach. In the mornings and the evenings we enjoyed the private beach with seals.

We enjoyed the stay. It was a pleasant room with a view of the ocean, and the breakfasts were great. One can climb from the inn down to the beach, which had no people when we were there. The inn in convenient to town.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us about your stay at Ocean Wilderness Inn. Folks really do love our beach because it's so quiet and secluded. French Beach, China Beach and Mystic Beach are really very close to us but they are well travelled in the summer. Thanks again for your kind comments. Safe travels Rick and...

Unbeatable view, no TV but that was an added bonus. Sit in the chairs inside or on the lawn and watch the marine traffic to Seattle and Vancouver. This is a place to chill out and not check your emails. Minor issue is that a bit of soundproofing between floors would be nice, but quieter than most hotels. Wonderful owners...

Ocean Wilderness has a beautiful view high above the Juan du Fuca strait with the Olympic Mountains in the distance. You can take in this view from the hot tub or walk down the stairs and enjoy an almost private piece of the beach where you can watch otters and seals. We had the most amazing breakfasts served by our...

Thank you for choosing to stay with us at Ocean Wilderness Inn. The spectacular view of the Juan de Fuca Strait and the Olympic mountains was one of the main reasons we bought the Inn. Early in 2016 we added the huge 4' x 10' picture window in the breakfast room so our guests could take full advantage of the...

Beautiful view of water. I enjoyed a long walk on the private beach and the friendly and welcoming owners. They were knowledgeable about the area and gave helpful tips about things to do and places to eat. Very relaxing, very clean, and I hope I'll get a chance to stay there again.

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to let other folks know about Ocean Wilderness Inn and our wonderful beach. While French Beach, China Beach, Mystic Beach and the others are very close to us and wonderful places to visit, ours is a very private beach with limited public access making it very tranquil. Thanks again...

A very special place run by very special people! We loved our early morning walk to the beach and sun downer with the bald eagles in the garden. Brilliant place to unwind and to visit places in the area.

We stayed in the Pirate's Cove room, which had a spectacular view. I could have sat there all day just watching the view. However, we were there for a wedding (not at this location) and we found the drive to and from Sooke to be quick, pleasant, and hassle-free compared to our frenzied pace at home in southern CA.
