As the province re-opens and interprovincial travel becomes a reality again, we’re all chomping at the bit for a little adventure. Whether it’s a night away from the city or a week-long trip catching up with family and friends, take a well-deserved break and get excited about exploring again…

Location: The Wolf Den, Juan de Fuca

The details: $475+ per night, plus fees (sleeps six)

The amenities: Inspired by the West Coast, The Wolf Den backs onto the beautiful China Beach Park and is situated on two acres in Jordan River. It is a little slice of pure heaven made for exploring, relaxing and being with nature. The modern, three-bedroom house has three king beds, a Bertazzoni stove with hand-built details, your very own wood-fired cedar sauna, outdoor cold tub, outdoor shower, star-gazing spot and numerous covered deck spaces to enjoy. So whether you’re roasting marshmallows over the fire pit or getting comfy next to the log burner and reading a book, this place is designed to remind you to take five. Described as ‘where the forest meets the ocean’, just a short 10-minute hike down a private fern- and mushroom-filled trail leads you to a secluded rock beach perfect for seal watching and taking in the sights. This peaceful home has everything you need for a perfect getaway and we’re sure you’ll never want to leave.

Activities in the area: Just a few minutes drive and you are at the parking lot for the hike to Mystic Beach and about a further 20-minute drive will find you at the popular Sombrio Beach. Other activities in the area include Tugwell Creek Farm and Meadery, where visitors can view the gardens, learn about the importance of bees in our lives and taste honey as well as a selection of their award-winning “bee-to-bottle” meads.
