Live Like a Local this Fall

From hiking and golfing to shopping, museums, and fine dining – with so much to see and do in Sooke, you’ll surely stay a while. Here are things you can do while you extend your stay and live like a local with a long-term stay in one of our vacation rentals this Fall.

How to Live Like a Local this Fall

Discover Seasonal Menus

Throughout fall be sure to check out the special menu items that pop up at local restaurants. Another opportunity for unique food and drink options is around Thanksgiving when some businesses celebrate by offering a special menu just for the holiday.


Sip Hot Coffee from Local Roasters

Warm up with a hot cup of coffee from these amazing local coffee roasters. Relax in the cozy environment at Stick in the Mud Coffee House with a cappuccino or latte. If you’re in the mood for a popular seasonal beverage, Serious Coffee has a delicious pumpkin spice chai tea latte.

Relax with Craft Beer Outdoors

Are you feeling thirsty? Take a day to experience The Sooke Beer Run. Sooke is home to three breweries that each offer a completely unique experience. First up is Sooke Brewing Company, located on Otter Point Road recently won the silver medal for their Belgian Blond Brew at the 2020 Canadian Beer Awards. Second, up is the Bad Dog Brewing Company. This craft microbrewery offers local delivery – all you have to do is pick up your phone and call! Last on the list is Sooke Oceanside Brewery, or as the locals call it, S.O.B


Go for a Stroll

While many think of visiting Butchart Gardens as a summer affair, the temperate climate of Vancouver Island allows visitors to enjoy the gardens year-round. Enjoy the solitude fall brings, and take in the subtle beauty of over 55 acres of shrubs, trees and flowers.


Where to Stay

Sooke Harbour Resort & Marina offers the perfect alternative to a hotel. All of our well-appointed townhome style-accommodations can be found in the heart of the scenic Sooke landscape with stunning harbour views and just steps away from the resort’s private marina.
