Welcome to Sooke River Cottage. This beautiful River Front Cottage is located on the banks of the Sooke River a few minutes from the famous Sooke Potholes Park and the Galloping Goose Trail. Situated only 45 minutes from Victoria and 5 minutes from the Village of Sooke, 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 barbeque, patio furniture and large hot tub. The path down to the river, through a stand of ancient evergreens leads to a private stretch of river abundant with wildlife. A year round destination that includes an amazing run of spawning Salmon coming up the river during the months of October and November. This secluded spot is the perfect escape for swimming, fishing, rock skipping or just relaxing right at your front door.
