About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 max)

A year round destination situated minutes from the world famous Sooke Potholes Park and Galloping Goose Trail, 5 minutes from the Village of Sooke and only 45 minutes from the city of Victoria. It is a bright 1400 square foot two bedroom home with a large and private deck.
The warm master bedroom is dressed with fine linens and is handily located close to the bathroom on the main floor. The second bedroom in the loft has a double bed, sitting area and stunning views of the river. The brightly painted bathroom includes a shower and “maids tub” along with piles of thick towels. The open living room is a cozy sanctuary with comfortable furniture, gas fireplace, folk art, antiques, hardwood floors and rows of windows soaring to the vaulted ceiling. Views of the lawn, decks and river complete the scene with many pots of herbs, flowers and shrubs to enjoy.

The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, which opens directly onto the deck and features a gas barbecue and patio furniture. The path down to the river, through a stand of ancient evergreens leads to a private stretch of river abundant with wildlife. During the months of October and November watch and listen to the Salmon making their way up the river to spawn. This secluded spot is the perfect escape for couples or families with swimming, fishing, hiking, biking, or just relaxing only steps from your front door.

About the owner: We fell in love with this property 35 years ago due to it's natural beauty and charm. The beautiful river and it's unique rain forest valley surroundings have made it an exceptional place to live.

Why the Owner Chose Sooke, British Columbia, Canada:
This beautiful property has been in our family for 27 years and we have lived and have raised our two sons on the adjacent property since 1979.
