View was great. Bobby and Jay take you in like you are close friends. Very nice experience for first time in tofino. They gave so many great tips about where to go and what to do. So clean and the house is just about brand new with very comfortable beds.

Staying at the Black Bear guest house is a little like having a secret corner of the world all to yourself. The views are wonderful, the hospitality is exceptional. Bobbi and Jay are so eager to share a wealth of information and highlights of the local area. Most enjoyable is sitting around the fire pit at the end of the day, after exploring what must be some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere in the world!

This was our family's second time staying at the Black Bear Guesthouse and it's hard to believe but I think this stay was even better. Beautiful sunrise over the inlet every morning and walking distance to Chesterman Beach, one of Tofino's best. Bobbi and Jay are great hosts and made us feel right at home.

Room Tip: We stayed in the upstairs suite, large and private. All the comforts of home.

We stayed 2 nights in the Osprey room of the B&B and we are ready to move in! Bobbie, Jay and Auley were very welcoming to our little family and we felt right at home. The inlet side of Tofino is amazing! Waking up with our baby in the middle of the night was fabulous because we got to take in the starry skies, crescent moon and 2 sunrises! Breakfasts were delicious with fresh fruit , the best homemade granola ever and hot eggy options too. We would love to come back!

I came across Black Bear Guesthouse after a referal from another local B&B that was full.
My visit was a last minute decision to get some chillout time and this lovely space suited me perfectly. My room had a view of one of the inlets and i would wake to the tide being completely out. Very tranquil location and great breakfasts.
Both Bobbi and Jay were great in their welcome and sharing useful information about places to eat and things to do. Very open to bringing food from takeaways to eat at the B&B. Created the space for good connections with other guests and themselves when I chose to join in.
Overall felt very welcomed and looked after. Would go again.

Black Bear Guesthouse is a wonderful B&B to enjoy the beautiful nature in and around Tofino. Bobby and Jay made us feel very welcome in their beautiful house. The three guestrooms are literally in their house, as the kitchen and "living room" area are integrated. However, we felt we had enough privacy in our beautiful guestroom. Breakfast was yummie and a lot, from kitchen and two of the guestrooms you have a stunning view on the shores. It is a ten minute drive to Tofino downtown, and another ten minutes to the National Park, a few minutes walking to Chesterman Beach.
Bobbi recommended dinner locations and a bear watching tour, both were great.

Room Tip: The upper floor guestroom was truly beautiful with a stunning view and a large luxurious bathroom
