We are returning to where we honeymooned for our 20th anniversary. We are thinking of staying outside Victoria because in the last 20 years we have gotten away from cities and prefer gardens, less hectic places. Old growth forest is my favorite scenery, but Gerry is partial to tide pools. We are going to Buchart Gardens for Saturday night fireworks, so want to find a really nice B&B somewhat close to there for 2 nights. What do people think of Florence Lake B&B? Any others closer to Buchart Gardens than Victoria or Sooke that we may want to consider?
For the other 4 nights we are thinking of Markham House or Hartmann House, both near Sooke. Any thoughts/comparisons/other suggestions?
20 years ago Sooke was definitely out of the city. How about now? Is there another area within a 45 minute drive of Victoria we should consider? If so,is there a nice B&B there you would recommend?
I appreciate your time in replying. So many options look good, so little time.
