We have been to Tofino many times before and have always stayed at one of the big resorts with the find dining restaurants and high price tags. Since this particular trip was a spontaneous one, and we failed to consider the tourist rush of the long weekend when we left home (which is several hours away) we got to the coast and soon realized that there were not many rooms available at the resorts. The front desk clerk at one of those resorts told us that there was one room available at the "Best B&B in town" and that the owners would save it for us if we wanted to give them a try. I'm not sure if we'll ever stay at one of the resorts again!
The Black Bear Guesthouse was perfect in every way. We left feeling like we had made new friends. Jay and Bobbi are so comfortably hospitable and accommodating that we felt like we were staying in our friends' home. Their house is beautifully crafted and full of local art and West Coast design features. The food was healthy, well prepared and beautifully presented (not to mention yummy!) My husband took a photo of his breakfast because it was so pretty! The room was spotless and comfy. The view was beautiful, and the atmosphere ~ peaceful and relaxing.
Both Bobbi and Jay were full of useful info about activities, local dining, events and beaches.
We're going back soon and why would we stay anywhere else?
