Found Ocean Wilderness Inn via a LIvingSocial deal and are glad of it. Stayed 4 nights in their 3 Cedars Suite and enjoyed every bit of it. Rooms are immaculate, beds were firm and comfortable, bathroom is enormous (to allow plenty of room around the jacuzzi tub). The inn is situated just off the main road so, at first, I was concerned about road noise at night. Didn't need to be. It was quiet and peaceful as can be. Hosts Lori and Andy are delightful friendly people who know how to care for their guests. Breakfasts were served family style around a beautiful old (and gigantic) wooden table and were very tasty. Pancakes with berry compote, frittata with bacon, grilled peaches with ricotta. The inn is alittle bit (8 miles?) outside Sooke so yes, you do need to go into town for other meals but there is much to see and do in that area. Excellent kayaking in Sooke Basin or its many coves and bays! Several lovely beaches where you can just sit and watch the waters of Strait of Juan de Fuca. Note: Traffic through Victoria during rush hour is terrible so, if you can time your trip to avoid it, do. Otherwise, know that it's worth it because the inn is well worth the traffic to get to. And, when you leave, Lori & Andy will give you a bag of their custom blend Trail Mix which may be the best I've ever had.
