About 15 miles west of Sooke, this cabin compound overlooks a long stretch of private beach, Juan de Fuca Strait, and the Olympic Mountains; no wonder the 24 rooms are often booked well ahead by repeat visitors. The one- and two-bedroom cabins—in single, duplex, and quad units—range from the original 1952 log cabins to high-ceilinged modern cottages. Every unit has a kitchen, a fireplace or woodstove, a water view, and a deck; most have private water-view hot tubs.
The place is well-known for its little glassed-in restaurant, perched high above the ocean; binoculars at each table help with whale spotting while you dine.
