My husband and I stayed at The Black Bear Guesthouse for our three night stay in Tofino. From the moment we arrived Our hosts Bobbi and Jay made us feel at home. The suite has an open concept feel to it, with a private bedroom. The kitchen is outfitted with all the appliances, glassware and utensils you could dream of needing, and the cupboards are well stocked with basic staples. Bobbi and Jay stock their place with local vendor supplies, including coffee and kombucha. We took Jay’s suggestion and enjoyed our coffee on the deck watching the sunrise, cozied up blankets supplied for the deck. Their property overlooks the tidal mudflat which is in the Nature Reserve, providing plenty of bird watching opportunities. Tall windows give the distinct feeling if living in the middle of a forest (yes, we are). The big bonus: a private hot tub! Will definitely recommend this place to all my friends!

Our family of three (Mum, Dad & 12yr old son) stayed three nights in August 2018 in the Cedar Suite. Very cosy but easily enough room for all of us (even with a foldaway bed for our son). Friendly hosts, nicely furnished, great shower room and a useful lobby area with coffee machine, fridge etc.
Great deck at the back of the house with lovely views across the creek - we saw bald eagles, ospreys and, yes, a couple of Black Bears in the distance!!! Also only a five minute walk across the road to beautiful Chesterman Beach.

Tofino is an expensive place to stay but we thought Black Bear Guesthouse pretty reasonably priced.

We have been here in August for 3 nights! We loved it so much! It is about 5 Min. with the car away from Tofino. It is beautiful located in a small bay. Many beaches and trails are so close. Tacofino (you have to try it when you like Tacos) is also real close! Our room was perfectly clean and super cool decorated. Bobby the owner was just fantastic. So incredible nice! She helped us with every matter, especially with our problem, that the airline lost our luggage. If you want to visit Tofino (which you should, because it is such a great place) you want to stay at this guesthouse. We were so happy that we found it.

Location was only a couple minutes drive into Tofino, owners go extra mile to provide you with things to make you stay more enjoyable ( provided us with rubber boots (our sizes) to walk the beaches and explore. rain suits in rooms to use , offered us bikes as well. recommended several activities and hikes to do as well as places to eat. Room was spotless clean bed was comfy.. note no TV in the room which we knew before renting

Thank you for the lovely review, glad you got to enjoy the 'foul weather' gear and get outside despite the weather.
All the best!
