We stayed in the cedar room which was cosy with heated polished floor. Room had all amenities, including decent bed, bathroom and living area. Small fridge is available, however no... More

My partner and I stayed in March 2015, the Black Bear Guesthouse is amazing and beautiful! The owners are kind and helpful in getting to know where everything in Tofino is. The guesthouse was clean, has everything you need! We felt very comfortable and relaxed the whole time we were there, highly recommended to come here! We will definitely come... More

We stayed for two nights in the cedar room of the black bear guesthouse and enjoyed it a lot - everything is styled perfectly and thoughtfully arranged with love - modern, minimalistic, clean and cosy. The atmosphere is like in a high class hotel - only that you are in this beautiful nature surrounded by trees, with a great view... More

Seems that all the great kudos for this destination are for the upstairs over the garage suite & from when this was a bed & breakfast; which I was under the impression was still in place when I booked through booking.com a week ago but was subsequently informed by the owner was no longer in place. The "cedar suite" which... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in October with our two teenage children. We had two rooms on the lower level of the home. First off, the home is beautiful. We loved the decor and the simple beauty of the home. It was beautiful to open the door off of our bedroom and be able to sit on the deck... More

The house is tucked away off the main road in a tranquil inlet. The inside is just amazing - clean, comfortable and rustic. The exterior is serene and overlooks the sound. Lots of areas to relax in including a deck where we sat around the firepit with a beer gazing up at the crystal clear sky. Breakfast was phenomenal -... More

This is a wonderful B&B in a serene location. The breakfast we had here was, hands-down, the best breakfast we had on our whole 3-week trip! The rooms are immaculate and the rustic, simple decor is perfect. The communal areas are fabulous places in which to sit and relax, read a book or just soak in the atmosphere (cozy lounge,... More

This B&B is beautiful. Tucked in a small inlet, with a nice view. The house is gorgeous, wooden beams and woodwork throughout. It was tranquil, comfortable beds and good food. Breakfast was all local foods, Tofino coffee and local ingredients.

The Black Bear is the perfect place to stay. It is set in a quiet residential area just south of Tofino. The house (built by the owners) has a beautiful setting overlooking an inlet of Clayquot Sound. We stayed in the Osprey room which surely has one of the best views we have seen from a bedroom. It changes with... More

This place is fantastic! We stayed for five nights and then moved onto the Black Rock resort down the road for two nights and wished we'd stayed for seven (you are right Jay, the Black Rock ain't all that)! Great rooms, hosts, breakfasts and the view is so peaceful. These folks work hard to look after you but never bother... More
