One of the best b&b experiences we've had in our many travels. We stayed at the Black bear guesthouse for three nights in the Cedar room. Jay and Bobbi were great hosts, friendly and welcoming with lots of info about things to see in the area. The house is absolutely beautiful and comfy with two nice living rooms where we... More

This was my first time in Tofino and Jay and Bobbi made me feel at home. The rooms were very clean and tidy. The breakfast was awesome! I couldn't ask for a less stress free and relaxing stay! I would recommend this place to everyone!

We can't say enough about this B&B - Jay and Bobbi are really friendly and so laidback - the room we had was airy, clean and felt really special and the views across the inlet were amazing - the entire bed and breakfast has a really quality feel about it and the extra touches such as the seating, firepit, binoculars...

We stayed at the Black bear Guesthouse for three nights as part of a longer holiday touring Vancouver Island, and it was by far the highlight of our trip. We concur with what others have said, the accommodation is faultless - lovely clean rooms, fantastic facilities and a view to die for. We stayed in the Black Bear and Inlet... More

The Black Bear Guesthouse was fantastic. Everything about our stay was perfect: gorgeous house and room, check-in was a breeze (very accommodating procedure) and the breakfasts were delicious. The hosts have plenty of recommendations for restaurants and activities if you ask, but don't bog you down with information if you don't need it. The house is right on the water... More

We can only concur with all the previous comments, this is a superb B&B from the location, the rooms and above all the people who own and run it. It’s the little touches that demonstrate the thought that went into making our stay an experience, binoculars for looking across the inlet at the wildlife, books on the birds you see,... More

Great location, very accomodating hosts, and excellent breakfast. Rooms were very comfortable and spotless. The perfect home base for exploring the Tofino area. Happy to recommend, and hopefully we'll get to visit again.
