As the owners of Ocean Wilderness Inn, we are committed to continuing to improve this wild and beautiful place.
The original cabin building was built by hand from trees felled on the property by Julius Friend in the 1940’s. Julius used to grow vegetables for the Sooke Harbour House. In the late 80’s, Marion Rolston purchased the property and added the building that houses the guest rooms. In early 2007, Marion Rolston retired and Lori LeCount and Andy Barber purchased the inn. Lori and Andy had the path to the shore rebuilt, added a new front door, storage unit in the car port and replaced the aging hot tub and gazebo. Andy and Lori retired from the Inn, late in 2015.
Our adventure began on October 28th, 2015.
We welcome you to join us.
