This is an amazing B&B. Jay and Bobbi are wonderful hosts and we had a fantastic time in Tofino. We stayed 5 nights and every morning brought a different, delicious breakfast. The B&B itself is a beautiful property. The location is a little out of town, but all the better for that. It's quiet and you can sit back with... More

The breakfasts were awesome and very filling. Those blueberry pancakes were great. It was such a relaxing holiday and we loved the evening we were able to unwind in the... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights here this July. The rooms have a hotel like feel in their presentation, cleanliness and extras. Infortunately we didn't get to meet our hosts as they were out of town for the weekend but Kathy made us an absoutely superb breakfast. If you judge a B&B mostly on the breakfast, as I tend... More

They gave us great recommendations for restaurants and activities (like whale/bear watching, surfing, hikes,..) in the Tofino area. The breakfast was delicious and at night, you could sit... More

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
