Arriving with Outward Bound Canada, Big Fish Lodge proved the perfect place for us to come back to reflect, relax, and warm up after a day spent outside with kids from the community. Bonnie, the owner, went out of her way to meet all of our needs and more. With comfy beds, a large and cozy common area, wifi, an... More

Stayed here for a week and liked the relaxed atmosphere. It is right on the beach with an excellent view. Breakfast is available for those early fishing trips, and kitchen is open to cook yourself supper, make lunches. There is a pool table and ample seating. A great place to get away form it all and enjoy nature.

We drove to Port Renfrew to stay at a Airbnb, but that wasn't what we expeted. Instead we drove to the lodge and we were very happy that they had vacancy. They were very friendly and showed us the rooms, so we could choose which one we liked. The room was clean, had an amazing view and good breakfast was... More

We booked the whole lodge for 24 of us for a full weekend on my 40th. It was absolutely perfect - lots of room to connect or to have private space, a huge communal kitchen, and amazing beach literally right outside. Bonnie was the perfect host, and whipped up spectacular breakfasts. This place is a real treasure.

What a treasure. The room was perfect. Lots of space for a family of five, plus a kitchenette. Bonnie was a delight. The lodge is beautiful. Kids ran on the beach, played board games in the lodge and had a blast.

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.

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
