Vancouver Island, British Columbia, boasts some of the best salmon fishing in the world, but that's not the only reason to visit. If you've been angling for a relaxing getaway, stop casting about and reel in this week's Escape to the Sooke Harbour House.

You and a guest will net a two-night stay for two, April 9 to May 30 or October 1 to December 24, at this upscale beachfront hotel ($757). After being lured to the panoramic ocean vista from the balcony of your Bird's Nest Supreme King Room or Supreme Ocean King Room, sip from an included bottle of premium British Columbia sparkling wine and nibble on included truffles.

Daily included breakfast for two will get you ready to tackle the day. Unwind on the beach and bask in the natural splendor of your surroundings—gaze out on views of Mt. Olympus and the Strait of San Juan de Fuca, or catch a glimpse of the seals, otters, and whales that frequent the shoreline.

Cast a wider net to check out the vibrant art scene in the town of Sooke, or head to nearby Sooke Potholes Regional Park for an afternoon of hiking and swimming. For something a little more indulgent, the hotel offers luxury spa treatments using stones, garden herbs, and the sea to reenergize your body, mind, and spirit.

When dinnertime rolls around, take the bait at the hotel's acclaimed restaurant, named Best Vancouver Island Restaurant by Vancouver Magazine. "It's impossible to beat Sooke Harbour House's delicious dedication to local. In a room that looks out over the ocean, pork and rabbit from nearby farms, wonderful whole Dungeness crab, and extraordinary salads from the huge garden make the ultimate argument in favour of locavorism."

This week's Escape is a boatload of fun, but if you don't act soon it'll also be the one that got away.

  • "Art, food, and gardens work together seamlessly at one of Canada's best-loved country inns... Guest rooms in the 1929 oceanfront inn, each with a fireplace and private balcony or patio are individually themed and exquisitely comfortable."
