Adventure to Point-No-Point Resort Part 2


  After spending some time exploring Chemainus we embarked on our journey towards Point-No-Point. Our check-in time was 4pm but we wanted to pick up some local wine or beer to drink (White Bark Ale from Driftwood Brewery to be exact) so we decided to stop into the lovely town of Sooke. 

 Point-No-Point Resort is located about 25 minutes from Sooke in Shirley (unincorporated). As we drove further and further from the city we joked it was beginning to look like the setting for "Last Cabin On The Left" or some other exploited horror movie riddled with cliches and good-looking over the hill actors playing teenagers. But it was really just so far outside of the city and in one of the most amazing locations.


  We checked in at the absolutely perfect time to catch a withering West Coast sunset on a glimmering, calm Pacific ocean. We quickly absorbed the stunning views with a glass of red wine (Apothic Red).



Sunset. Check. Open fireplace. Check. No TV. Check. No alarm clock. Check. 
A completely private cabin in a completely private setting. Double check. 

 Our first impression of Cabin B? Warm, cozy and inviting. Relaxing and serene. We were very much looking forward to spending 2 nights sans technology, absorbing the glorious sights and thoroughly embracing the beautiful nature around us. 

 The Raccoon cabin came complete with a queen size bed, full kitchen, full bathroom complete with a jetted tub and the living area had a wonderful open fireplace. Oh yes and we can't forget about the 2 person hot tub on the deck over-looking a stunning ocean view.




 The low season runs October.9th to March.21st and if you book a stay between Mon-Thurs you're also looking at a lower rate (our room was $185 per night). There are 25 different cabins to choose from depending on the amount of people and the occasion. They come by daily to stock firewood and linens. It's so quiet you feel like you are in a different universe

 I highly recommend a visit to Point-No-Point Resort if you looking for a "I have to get away from it all" kind of trip. If want to have some time away from technology, enjoying the simple beauty of nature you MUST check it out!
