Our visit to Tofino was definitely a highlight of our trip to Vancouver Island in June of this year. We were privileged to stay at the Black Bear Guesthouse with our Hosts Bobbi & Jay. The location could not be better, situated in woods on an inlet, it felt absolutely secluded although ~100m from the main road whilst only a few minutes drive from downtown Tofino.

The house is a large, modern and spacious L-shaped wooden building (see photo) with the owners living in one half and the other half is let out. Our apartment was very comfortable and fitted with a modern bathroom. There were no cooking facilities in the downstairs apartment, (there may be some plans to change this), but this was hardly a problem as we ate in town most of time anyhow.

Our Hosts, Bobbi & Jay and extremely knowledgeable concerning the wildlife and were really helpful with all kinds of tips regarding tours, wildlife adventures, kayaking, where to eat etc etc. We spent our evenings with a bottle of wine looking out over the bay spotting wildlife..as the names says, Black Bears are forever present.

If you are looking for comfortable accomodation in an idyllic setting, then this is the place.

We were privileged to stay two nights at the black bear guest house near tofino and what a place. Tucked away and over looking a fabulous inlet it was just a fantastic experience. In evening you can sit in two gorgeous chairs discretely located in forest overlooking the inlet to wildlife watch ..........

A beautiful, clean and well equipped suite - everything you need to prepare your own meals, including a balcony with bbq. The bed and sofabed are very comfortable. Quiet residential area, but conveniently located to "downtown" Tofino. Fantastic place to stay!

My friends and I had a wonderful stay. The suite had everything we needed. We enjoyed many of the delicious restaurants in town but also cooked up a nice meal in the suite. Bobbi and Jay were great hosts-so friendly and helpful with our needs and questions. I know we were all wishing we could stay longer and look forward to coming back!

My friends from England and I recently stayed at Black Bear Guesthouse. The accommodations were fantastic, clean, well-designed and it had everything we needed. The best part was the close proximity to Chesterman Beach--a 5 minutes walk. If you are looking for quiet elegance for a getaway, Black Bear Guesthouse is the perfect location in Tofino.
