Beautiful 180 degree view of the straight, the ferry dock and beach. Close to the amazing museum, Coho Joe’s. The bakery and Co-op store. We took in the Bere Point trail and the lighthouse. We had a good time despite the somewhat rainy weather. Interesting place.

Peace and serenity in a photographer's paradise!
Sointula is a photographer's paradise! My only regret is that we only stayed for one night. Our room had a water view that you could watch all day long. The beds were comfortable, and the staff were friendly and courteous. There is a kitchen that guests can use to prepare their own food. The water in the hotel is very soft and drinkable. We are hoping to return again, this time staying for a few days of rest and relaxation!
