Gosh - it seems we're not the only ones who found this place and thought it would be a nice mini-moon to relax and recuperate in.
Shaun is a wonderfully friendly host and having the Hot Springs a kayak/row/boat ride away all to yourselves (after the tours have gone home) is lovely - bear in mind though that the Springs are quite small but all in all lovely if you have to yourselves.
We had probably some of the freshest crab cooked for us - a magnificent feast - and lots and lots of cups of tea!
You can do as much or as little as you want to....
Also - it seems we aren't the only ones who had also "found" the Freespirit Spheres on the internet and were headed there next - both combined were unique and memorable experiences. If you're like us - you'll love both!

Room Tip: Boat up and Fly back to Tofino!

We stayed at the InnChanter while we were visiting Vancouver Island and Tofino in May. The InnChanter is surounded by a one of a kind nature and in the heart of Clayquot Sound close to the hot springs cove. Shaun the host made us one of the most delicous meals we ever had and gave us kayaks to check out the region. He was very friendly and responded all our questions.
The Boat is amazing and the beds are very comfy.

Our stay was quite awhile ago but the memory never fades! The food was spectacular full of flavor and FRESH! We walked to the Hot Springs and all over the surrounding areas. We paddled out in the boats and just watched the ocean and fell in love! This is a magical experience and one that will renew your spirit and refresh your soul! We took the whale tour on the way out and saw whales and a float plane back adn saw more whales! We took the ferry from Vancouver and then the drive was mesmerizing. The number of waterfalls everywhere and just the beauty of it all made the trip getting to our final destination of the InnChanter that much more perfect! This is by far the BEST Vacation and stay I have ever experienced and I have been around the world! Go be in the middle of nature and surround yourself with God's beauty. Top Notch and just makes my heart float!

We own a Bed and Breakfast ourselves in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, so when we travel we prefer to stay in this type of lodging as it generally offers a more personal and rewarding experience. When we traveled to Canada for our wedding, we were looking for a really unique, memorable (and "truly Canadian experience"!!) for our Honeymoon, so we ended up choosing the Innchanter in Hotsprings Cove.
This is one of those destinations where just getting there is half of the pleasure. After a Ferry Boat ride from Vancouver to Nanaimo, we took a bus across scenic Vancuver Island to Tofino, a small fishing village, with small crafts shops, local indian art, quaint cafes and an incredible landscape. But the adventure really began when we boarded our seaplane which whisked us over deep endless blue ocean (with Killer Whales dancing below us!) to Clayoquat sound - a rugged, yet beautiful destination with a native Indian Village at the back of the bay and all surrounded by Coastal Rainforest.
Nothing could have prepared us for this incredible setting, a restored 1920's fishing boat decked out to receive a few special guests in tastefully appointed state rooms with comfortable dining and sitting rooms. The colours Shaun (the owner) has chosen feel
truly inspired in the deep indigo hues of the skies and ocean and the reds and yellows like memories of the amazing sunrises and sunsets we experienced on the boat.
We spent our days wandering the endless coastline and beaches nearby where the boat is anchored, making our way to the shore by Kayak or had Shaun run us over.
We were led as though by guides by a couple of enormous dogs from the Indian village, who seemed to know exactly where to lead us and what we were looking to see.
They patiently paused for us to photograph and rest before leading us on and we waited and photographed as they played and swam in a lake en-route to the beaches...
The highlite of our days though was always the soak in the hotsprings. It is a wonderful walk along a cedar boardwalk built over the forest floor to a cliff where boiling natural waters plunge over and then across rocks forming several pools before draining into the ocean.
The best time to visit the pools was after the day visitors from Tofino had left. We set out candles late one night and enjoyed a bottle of wine as we soaked away any possible last shred of stress and digested yet another of our host´s amazing gourmet dinners!
Highly recommended for something completely out of the ordinary that lists high on our list of experiences of a lifetime! We hope we will be able to come back one day soon and will never forget this trip!
