It’s always nice to be able to see where you are going, before you decide to go there. Below are some photos of rooms and views at Sooke Harbour Resort. All the rooms are comfy, the patios are relaxing, the meeting space is efficient and the scenery… well come see for yourself!
Interior shared space of the two-bedroom townhouse. Each townhouse has an upstairs with a queen room and ensuite. Lower floor has one queen room, a full bathroom, kitchen, dining area and living area. Two balconies, one on upper floor and one on the main floor.
This is the common area of the large (4 bedroom) penthouse at Sooke Harbour Resort and Marina. All three patios for the penthouses are joined which makes it easy to mix, mingle and enjoy the views and social time with your fellow writers.
Here is one of the queen size bedrooms. Ample space for all your “stuff” and a very comfy bed. All three king size bed rooms with ensuite have been booked.
There is one twin bed room left in Condo 1. (#102) Bunk with a friend if you want to! Otherwise, choose the queen rooms in the condo or the townhouses.
This is where the majority of the retreat takes place. In this room you’ll learn from those who took years to master their craft. Plenty of coffee to keep you alert, and lots of great natural light. Bring your notebook or lap top, there’s lots to do here!
This is the common area between the three penthouse condos, and right across the lane from the townhouses. It’s here where we’ll be connecting and chatting when the workshops are complete. Bring some marshmallows! It’s also a great place to soak up the sun, and be out of the wind. The Wine and Cheese on Friday night and the BBQ on Saturday night will be held on the balconies facing the harbour.
Saturday afternoon is free time (with an assignment). Choose what you want to do: go on a wildlife boat tour, SUP, go for a bike ride, or explore the Sooke area. There’s plenty to do here which makes it a great place to relax and reboot your muse.
Soak away your cares in the hot tub at the resort. Secluded enough to feel like you’re in your own oasis (with other writers of course). Have a soak before bed, or mid afternoon, it’s all about what you want to do when you aren’t in workshops.
