The space
Welcome to Foggy Mountain BnB, where your beautiful one room self catering studio cottage above French Beach on the west coast of Vancouver Island awaits you. Stunning views of the ocean on this three acre property and close proximity to a plethora of outdoor activities will keep you entranced during your stay.

Take a short walk to French Beach or enjoy the scenic walk to Priest Cabin Park on the mountain behind the house for incredible views of the Juan De Fuca Strait. The local region offers more than its natural beauty. Experience local dining pleasures, as well as discovering the creative talents of various artists from the Sooke and Port Renfrew areas.

Your studio cottage is a compact 240 sq foot space which is beside the main house but completely detached from the main house. You will be sleeping on a very comfortable queen size bed and your modern bathroom with tub / shower is fully equipped with towels, cloths, soap, shampoo and conditioner.

Amenities include: Compact Fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, hairdryer, kettle, wireless internet connection, outside patio area,bbq, fire pit( subject to local open fire bans),and vehicle parking.
There is no range or hotplate in the cottage.


Last but not least check out the blacksmith on the property. Feel free to watch some traditional blacksmithing being done or look through the on site art gallery. All metal work on the property has been done by the on site blacksmiths. Our blacksmiths shop and gallery are open to the public from 11-4 ,so there may be other visitors on the property during these hours viewing the forge and gallery. The Blacksmith starts his day at 9:00 so there is a potential for noise.
