is convenient to the Galloping Goose biking trail just outside the door, which leads all over the Island. Big cedars frame the view of the lake, and sunshine filters through onto the the deck, which overlooks fishing, rowing, peddle boating, canoeing, swimming, and the exciting ever so tall rope swing which peaks its arc far out over the swimming area. Near by are the the waterslides, whale watching, the Victoria Museum, Royal Roads, Fort Rodd Hill, Pearson College, Comosun College, Thetis Park, and Goldstream Park all within easy distance of the Inn.

Our lakeside self contained suite is ideal for larger groups or families, and is great for handicapped as well.
