Perfect for a Couple

  • 5 of 5

The hospitality and decorating skills of the owner are outstanding. Although named the "Log House" it is not rustic in any way. The interior is cosy and perfectly finished. We really enjoyed watching the view across the bay to wooded East Sooke, and beyond to snowy Olympic Mountains. A wonderful quiet location, yet within walking distance to docks and shopping. The loft bed is good for somebody who may wish to have their own space, its skylight giving a feeling of being close to nature. We stayed a month and were happy to conclude it was the best choice in the area for us.

A comfortable and very tidy place for two, with an amazing host to take care of every need.

  • 5 of 5

This place was a great location for doing our own cooking as well as exploring some nearby restaurants. When we needed advice on what to explore the hostess was very helpful. The accommodation was pleasantly cozy.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in our weekend in Sooke. Ruma is a wonderful host and the pace is beautiful, clean and very comfy. Gardens are stunning beautiful.

Location is also great, walking distance to town but away from the busy roads. We loved the place, highly recommend it.

Great location for exploring the Sooke area

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the Log Suite for the month of February and thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. Ruma is a generous and friendly host, but also allowed us lots of privacy. The suite had everything we needed, was bright and clean, and within walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants, and the harbour boardwalk. The loft bedroom is not easily accessible to seniors, but the Murphy bed was very easy to use and comfortable to sleep on. Sooke is a welcoming community and we made full use of the recreation centre, walking trails, nearby beaches, and museum/info centre.

Perfect stay for small family

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with our 8-year-old son for two nights. Ruma is very warm and hospitable. Her guest house was perfect for us - a loft for our son and queen bed for us. The location is ideal because it is very close to town without feeling busy. Perfect place for us to rest our heads at night after hiking and exploring the area during the day.

Great place where to stay in Sooke

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the Log Suite with our toddler son. The location was excellent, close to the city center and the sea boardwalk. Ruma was very friendly and welcomed us with snacks and fruits. The suite was very clean and comfortable. Although attached to the house, the suite provides great privacy. We would have liked to have a better equipped kitchen and recycling, but those are really minor elements of concern. We definitely recommend the log suite!
