Cute B&B with Nice Owners

Posted Jul 4, 2017
Pros: Bed was comfortable. Owners were warm and friendly. Hot tub overlooking a cliff. Wifi was strong (no cell reception).
Cons: Could maybe expand breakfast options. Currently it is continental with toast, cold cuts, cake, cereal, fruit, ect.
Location: Mystic Beach. East Sooke Park Coast Trail. Potholes. Meadery. Shirley Delicious.
Had a pleasant stay at the Ocean Wilderness Inn. Owners were very nice and appreciate that they were able to accommodate a late check-in. They were helpful with nearby suggestions and wanted to hear about our plans for the weekend.

Cozy inn with awesome ocean view and beach access.

Posted Jun 14, 2017
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was well appointed and very clean. The property owners, Rick and Karen, are very friendly. The inn has spectacular views of the ocean and there is a walkway that takes you right to the beach. High recommend staying here. It is magical!

Quaint, spacious, bright and clean ocean view room

Posted May 9, 2017
I was highly disappointed there was no breakfast being served (I LOVE breakfast) but was more than impressed with the property, room was well appointed; clean, bright, amazingly comfortable bed, sheets, duvet. If only we could've stayed longer, we didn't use the jetted ocean view tub or robes!

Beautiful hotel with an amazing setting.

Posted May 1, 2017
This was a remarkable hotel. The staff from check in to check out were amazing. Remembering names and treating the guests with professionalism. The setting is stunning and the rooms were extremely well appointed. Although we were there for a wedding and could not take advantage of all the activities available there is plenty to do if you want to keep busy. From Wine tours to relaxing on the beach this hotel can recommend it all. Karen and Rick are amazing hosts that make you feel welcome from the minute you arrive. We will be staying there again in fall and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

Quiet location with a great view

Posted Apr 18, 2017
Pros: The beach, outdoor hot tub, and view.
Location: If you're not into the outdoors there's not much to do here. Otherwise, the beach is fantastic.
The lodge is located on top of an escarpment with a fantastic ocean view and nice quiet beach. The staff were very friendly and offered great suggestions about where to eat. The let us borrow their crab trap to try to catch crabs. We will definitely be returning to stay here again!

Thank you for taking the time to let others know about Ocean Wilderness Inn. They say the best months to catch crabs are the ones ending in "R's". Relax and recharge with us again soon. Safe travels, Rick and Karen

Scenic coastal inn

Posted Sep 12, 2016
Friendly hosts and a wonderful setting at ocean wilderness inn. Located on the bluffs above the beach in more remote but still close in area. Great launching area to explore the many beaches to the north. Hot tub is clean and has a view of the ocean.The private beach area is a bit of hike, good for photos and exploring.

Thanks for letting other Expedia members know a bit about our Inn. Like we always say, our wonderful, private beach is about 150 steps down and 300 back to the top! (Its an easy 5 minute cardio workout:). And if you are looking for some public beaches, French Beach is about 5 minutes away, with Jordan River, Mystic and China beaches another 15 minutes beyond that. Sombrio beach is a bit farther along but still quite close. All are great for hiking, exploring or just relaxing. Botanical Beach and Botany Bay are a nice hour away by car. Glad you enjoyed the Hot Tub. Please come back soon. Safe Travels...
