Welcome to Westburn cottage, located on Billings Spit in beautiful Sooke Harbour only 35 minutes from Victoria BC. The village of Sooke rests on the shores of the picturesque Straits of Juan de Fuca and the spectacular Olympic Mountain range.
Take pleasure in the natural beauty of Vancouver Island while you relax on our peaceful beachfront acreage. Here in the mature country gardens the flowers are always in bloom and the possibilities are endless.
Relax on your private deck or enjoy a leisurely stroll along the water's edge. In the evening take in the awe-inspiring sunset and clean ocean air while you cozy up to your beach fire. Our self contained cedar-shake cottage is available year round and comes complete with everything you need to make your stay with us, a dream vacation come true.
Every corner of the grounds from the cottage to the gardens is a great work of custom craftsmanship and attention to detail. Everything from the display of local art to the use of native hardwoods and flora was intended to create a haven existing in perfect harmony with its' surroundings.
You will find yourself only minutes from the world-renowned Sooke Harbour house and some of the best in fine dining that Vancouver Island has to offer. A 30 second walk from your deck will take you to the water's edge where you can watch the Sea Otters, Mink, Bald Eagles and Harbour Seals & resident swans play. Take a whale watching tour to see one of our resident Orca pods, go Salmon fishing or swim in the refreshing Sooke Potholes.
My husband and I stayed at Sweetgrass Cottage for a week and it was truly a little slice of heaven. We escaped from the hundred plus degree temps in Oklahoma to the 60 degree weather and an adorable cottage that was perfect for the two of us. We were warmly greeted by Kathy who left bouquets of flowers and a bottle of wine! We soaked up all the local flavor...went whale watching, explored the various beaches, went kayaking, and our personal favorite...toured Butchart Gardens. We cooked a lot of meals as the food in Canada is a little pricey but the local restaurants were excellent. Kathy made our trip even better with all of her hospitality. You won't go wrong staying here!
