Nestled in the heart of Sooke Potholes Provincial Park on southern Vancouver Island are the remains of an extravagant chateau that never saw completion.
Albert Yuen, a developer from Victoria, purchased the 160-acre parcel of land overlooking Sooke River in the 1980s, and construction on the resort began shortly after. The lodge was conceived as a retreat for those drawn to the lush landscape and quiet outdoor offerings of British Columbia’s temperate rainforests.
