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

What a hoot! Just spent two nights at the lodge - and enjoyed it immensely. Just understand, this is not the Ritz - very basic rooms designed for sleeping - ours had a neat covered deck and beautiful beach/ocean view - but they are not big. Bring your own food and beverages and get ready to relax. The kitchen facilities... More

We just got back from two superb nights at Big Fish Lodge. Right on the beach, unbelievable kitchen facilities and bbq, tons of fridge space and fantastic breakfast! Bonnie is a great lady and we had a lot of fun chatting and eating together. It's got a real communal vibe that lends itself well to socializing with people in your... More

Lucas and the staff at the Big Fish welcomed our big group, which included visitors from Europe, to a spacious and comfortable waterfront room and delicious breakfasts. The fire pit by the beach was awesome for evenings. Recommended for a Port Renfrew stay, we'll go back.

We stayed two nights in the Big Fish Lodge. The room had a view of the sea and the beach. It was clean, good bed and great staff. This is not a luxury hotel, but a place like home. It is a very relaxed atmosphere at the Lodge. Make your own food, grab a beer and have breakfast or dinner... More
