“Excellent accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blackbear Guest House. We stayed 2 nights in the Osprey Room - the wall of windows offers a wonderful view of the inlet; the bed and linens were very comfortable and the claw-foot bathtub and cosy bathrobes were a treat. Jay lit a campfire for us and we were able to enjoy the sunset in peaceful and natural surroundings. The hosts are genuine and very personable.

Room Tip: The Osprey room overlooks the inlet waters.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Black Bear Guesthouse and we absolutely loved the house with its big windows, beautiful decoration, luxurious bathroom and amazing surroundings. Breakfast was delicious and provided lots of energy for a day full of activities. Bobbi is a wonderful host and Teresa, who helps in the house, is really friendly. We would love to come back some day.

Room Tip: The Inlet guestroom has a wonderful view on the lake. We left the curtains open at night so every mo...

We stayed with Bobbi, Jay and little Auley for 3 nights and the Osprey room we had was perfect. They were full of great idea's and recommendations for our days in and around Tofino. Breakfast time is agreed to suit guests and Bobbi served up cooked breakfasts each morning along with her homemade granola. The whole house is decorated with beautiful pieces of local art and the views from the back porch and windows are stunning. You get a different picture every time you look out as the tide changes frequently. If you are really lucky then you might even see bears or wolves across the inlet. Definitely recommend the B&B to anyone wanting a peaceful place to relax but also be close to the local beaches for surfing, walking or generally just enjoying the views. Tofino centre is only 5 minutes by car so you can enjoy all the galleries they have to offer along with tours for bear and whale watching.

Room Tip: The Osprey room had stunning views across the bay but the rooms downstairs were just as stunning and...

Bobby and Jay were great hosts, always giving awesome suggestions for things to go and see. Their helper Teresa was also very nice, and both ladies made unbelievable breakfast's always hot and ready when we went into the kitchen. I really enjoyed that they care for the environment and live healthy lifestyles themselves, even providing eco friendly shampoo&conditioner in the shower for the guests. Their location has a great view and is only a short drive into town, which we enjoyed because they had bikes we could use to go over to nearby beaches. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, young and old alike, and would go back myself in a heartbeat!

We stayed here this weekend, absolutely amazing house, so clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. With spectacular views.
Bobbi and Jay (& Olly) wonderful hosts, so friendly and Teresa's breakfast were delicious!
They even accommodated my request of gluten free at the last minute without any questions.
Thank you for a wonderful stay for our first trip to Tofino, we will be back.

Family visit. Great location, peaceful, with wonderful view over the Inlet. Bobbi was great hostess, cooked and served delicious breakfasts. Spotlessly clean comfortable rooms and great to have lounge area available for sitting/talking. Felt very comfortable, welcomed and relaxed.
