After the hustle and bustle of large cities if you desire to stay at a small off the beaten track place, Sooke is definitely one of the unique spots in the world where life is so placid, calm and beautiful.

This elegant waterside lodge, located only 45 minutes from Victoria on the southwest of Vancouver Island, is one of Canada's premier resorts. It sits on a rise overlooking the Straight of Juan de Fuca with the snow-covered peaks of the Olympic Mountains of the Washington State in the distance.

Surrounded by acres of flowers this enchanting retreat is a plain, white-washed clap-board farmhouse dating back to 1929 that has been lovingly restored and tastefully expanded by the Philip's.

Their basic philosophy is a deep respect for food from the ground up and a perfect assessment of the beauty and value of local fresh ingredients. Sinclair has a "scientific approach" and with the years became a walking encyclopedia of food knowledge.

The success of Sooke Harbour House can be attributed partly to an ingenious and inventive culinary style made of a mixture of Japanese and French with touches of Northwest Indian ; partly to its use of just-caught seafood (sea urchins, triton snails, speckled sea cucumber, glistening abalone, squid, octopus, gooseneck barnacles, 40 types of crab, pink swimming scallops or geoduck, the largest Pacific clam)- here when they say "seasonal", they really mean "hourly"-; partly to the extravagant gardens that spill down to the sea overflow with great mauve clumps of lavender, where they grow their own herbs, greens, berries or edible flowers (about 500 different kinds); partly to the spectacular setting above the killer whales or grey whales rolling into the inlet looking for the sea lions and seals; and finally to the exceptional charisma of two modest intellectuals whose main goal is to please people travelling from afar for a taste of paradise.
