The Black Bear Guest House is a wonderful place to stay. We had the cedar room which was lovely and clean. It is a really modern space, well laid out, with the bathroom in particular really well done. Bobbi is a really great host and was especially helpful when our whale watching got cancelled. She has a beautiful space outside... More

A nice and well laid-out one-bedroom suite. We were impressed by the thoughtful details included in the well stocked kitchen, the overall cleanliness of the facility and by how helpful Bobbi and Jay were.

Confortable and spacious, located near an ocean's arm in the middle of the forest, very quiet place and kind hosts.

A beautiful, clean and well equipped suite - everything you need to prepare your own meals, including a balcony with bbq. The bed and sofabed are very comfortable. Quiet residential area, but conveniently located to "downtown" Tofino. Fantastic place to stay!
