The Carriage House is a cozy, comfortable and peaceful getaway in the heart of Metchosin. It is completely private, surrounded by trees and yet close to all amenities. Metchosin is a charming rural community that is close to the city but feels far away. It is a perfect mix of farms and lush forest and is well known for its art tours and farmer's markets. You will find pastoral vistas with grazing sheep, horse farms and an abundance of trails and beaches. The Galloping Goose, a 55km rail trail used by pedestrians, bikers and horse back riders, winds its way through Metchosin on it's way from the ferries at Swartz Bay through Victoria and continues on to Sooke.
Hike the trails, hit the beach, fish, kayak, golf, bike, explore the ocean trail to the Petroglyphs of East Sooke park or go storm watching and surfing in Jordan River.
The kitchen is ready for your own cooking with a full size fridge and dishwasher or enjoy an evening in downtown Victoria - only 40 minutes away or dine locally at the scenic Glen Rosa Farm - just 5 minutes away.
If you are looking for a completely private, separate accommodation away from the hustle and bustle of the city but still easily accessible and perfectly situated to explore the western shore of the island then this is a good choice. You can still stay in touch with wireless internet and cable.+ More
