Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Lori and Andy are avid travelers. In the last 20 years, they have stayed at over 80 B&B's/inns/small hotels throughout the UK, USA, and Canada. They have taken several long-distance bicycle trips. Lori is a two time marathon finisher.They revel in music. They appreciate good food, wine, movies and company. They arrived on Vancouver Island in early 2007, new to British Colombia, from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Their innkeeping adventure is a sabbatical from their careers. Before becoming an innkeeper, Lori practiced law for 12 years, worked as a paralegal for 10 years and was in professional theatre for 7 years. She is a graduate of Gustavus Adolphus College and William Mitchell College of Law. Andy is inn-keeping part-time and continues engineering part-time. He was a staff scientist at MTS. He is completing (remotely) his PhD in biomedical engineering from the University of Minnesota. His undergraduate degree was in Mechanics from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and his masters in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Minnesota. We took some of Mark Twain's advice to heart: 'Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.'

Why the Owner Chose Sooke:
When we purchased the inn it was so tired and worn so as to appear almost haunted. It called to us for rescue.

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
The beach!. It is the first accessible private wild beach between us and Victoria.
