Just the right place to see an eagle and enjoy a foggy and cosy atmosphere. Never slept closer to the water before, the ocean woke us up in the morning! The 'housemother' was like a mother to us and we almost cried leaving this place.

We stayed here and had a great time! Great common room and dining area! The shared kitchen was a little cramped, but everyone made do! Our room was comfortable, but as we were traveling with a teenager, was a little cramped.We spent the day fishing, after owner recommended a guide, and had the best fishing ever! We supplied a crab... More

Rode here on our bicycles as part of a bike tour of Vancouver Island. Had made a reservation and was greeted by the very friendly owner upon our arrival. He looked after all our needs, and made us feel right at home, giving us an excellent recommendation for dinner. Not sure we will be coming through this area again, but... More

Located right on the beach in Port Renfrew this property has a great view of the bay and beach. We watched 9 eagles land on the fronting sand bar one morning. Rooms are small but comfortable with ours having a queen bed. Our shower was tight and water pressure in the morning was low. Rooms are quiet even with several... More

Rob S, Owner at Big Fish Lodge, responded to this review

It's great to hear that you enjoyed Port Renfrew and the Big Fish Lodge. It's too bad that the fishermen that were there had left a mess for you. Since our guests are encouraged to use our kitchen, sometimes guests are not completely mindful of the mess they left behind. Our hosts will always try their best to clean up... More

Tried to book at Big Fish Lodge, but it was taken. It was our first trip to Port Renfrew and we were checking out future options so we stopped by to take a look. Very welcoming and helpful staff and a beautiful common area with pool table, couches, view of the water, and telescope, etc. We peaked in a room... More

Best combination of relaxation and adventure! The Big Fish Lodge is an absolute gem, tucked away on the best ocean-front/beach-front in Port Renfrew. The rooms are clean, with fantastic views, new bathrooms and very comfy beds. I just came back from a guys-trip with 4 of my buddies. It was so nice to relax in the spacious living room, outside...

Visited with my business partners/friends in June 2014. I HIGHLY recommend Big Fish Lodge to anyone who wants to experience the best the West Coast has to offer- ocean-front beauty, clean/comfy rooms, incredible hosts, delicious local fresh seafood, right next to the famous West Coast Trail head, and access to fishing tours within walking distance. World class hosts and the... More

We are from Toronto, uber urbanites. Being on the beach, listening to the ocean waves outside our bedroom was heaven. The place is simple, laid-back, like visiting family, where you do your own dishes. Our " beach view" room was the best, 2nd floor, patio doors to,a small balcony. I would highly recommend the lodge for a family and/or large... More

Location: Right on the beach, this is a perfect get away. We had a rainy foggy sort of weekend, really the best kind to experience the Westcoast. Very picturesque drive. Close to Avatar Grove, and Botanical Beach Provincial Park. Accommodations: You can look at the pictures online on the lodge website, but really don't fuss over which room you would... More

If you are looking for a quiet place to runaway to after the hectic Christmas season ---THIS IS IT. I gave this 2 night stay at The Big Fish Lodge for Christmas to my husband. We decided to take advantage of this at the end of January. We did not take the boat (as we live approx 2-1/2 hrs away)... More
