How many vacation spots has one been where the service is so perfect that one remembers all the names of the staff? Thanks to manager Glenn, guide Ky, then Ashley,Nikki,Ericka,Martha, and Rachel. My son and I stayed for two days of fishing, caught salmon and halibut, the salmon was prepared fresh for us that night while we dined, overlooking the Pacific while sipping fine wine. Kayaking, canoeing, hiking, eagle watching, whale watching, sleeping under the canopy of God's glorious creation, my what an experience. If I had to nitpick, it is tough to get there and the room furniture could use updating. But all in all well worth the price and the time. We will be life time customers. Thanks Eagle Nook!

Room Tip: Since both sides of the lodge face water, one can't go wrong.

We just finished a 3 day 2 night stay here at this incredible resort. We arrived to a really nicely prepared dinner. Nothing heavy, just delicate greens and everything made with a gourmet chief's touch. My wife's fish dish was to die for.

The next day we were off for kyaking all morning. What a place for it! We saw eagles, orcas, sea lions and otters on our paddle out to Broken Islands. All the gear including safety vests and radios were top notch and provided by the resort.

We went fishing in the afternoon and caught 3- 20 plus pound salmons which were flash frozen for our trip home. Because the resort is virtually in the Barkley Sound park, the boat ride to go fishing was a whole 10 minutes.

Another great dinner followed with relaxing by an outside fire late into the evening. Next morning it was up to go hiking with views of the water at every turn of the trail.

The boat ride back to Tofino Airport has me reflecting on what a truly special place Eagle Nook Resort is. The staff was uniformily gracious and helpful. The location is just right for a vacation trip that is truly out of the ballpark!

I have no affiliation with anyone related to this resort and had never been here before, nor was I compensated in any way for writing this review.

My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend at Eagle Nook Resort. We immediately fell in love with this luxurious gem set amidst breathtaking wilderness. We kayaked around the corner from the resort and saw whales breaching and playing. They were close enough to smell their breath. Later other whales came to the large bay in front of the dining room to entertain us for dinner and then again for breakfast the next day. The wildlife alone makes this a very special place. The staff is that perfect blend of professional without being solicitous, while making you feel welcome and part of the family. We stayed in one of the cottages. This log cabin, complete with a covered patio, also has a cozy fireplace and a very comfortable king bed. This was our first trip to Eagle Nook, but definitely not our last.

Room Tip: The cottage is worth the price for a couple or a family with one child.

Hi,

my girl and I stayed two weeks ago at Eagle Nook. I travel a lot for business reasons since some years and sleep 90-100 nights per year in hotels in Europe, North America and Africa - Eagle Nook is in my favorite TOP 3. If you need a timeout and want to relax it is perfect, if you like fishing it has everything you can recommend to have perfect days.
We loved being there, rooms are very nice and all with a view to the bay. Meals were top notch - thank you Jens. Doing a marine safari here is obligate - we had a splendid day with Richard & Janice who guided us through parts of the Broken Islands Group.
You find here a high level ambience and an environment that you feel like home and you do not want to leave, that's for sure.
Thanks to Glenn, Kate, and everybody else who did his best to make this an unforgettable stay (in the very best manner).
We live about 8000 km away but we definetely will come back.
This place is more than just a high-level hotel/resort/spa - the people there live for it!

Greetings from Anja & Michael, Germany

We've just spent a glorious 4 days at the Eagle Nook and will be back!! Not only is the natural beauty and the superb location of this hidden gem a must do experience; but the accommodation and amenities were way above any expectations. The professional staff makes you feel as though you are truly part of a family; right down to the homemade, packed lunches prepared to send on the way for some of the best fishing we've ever had. Every day brought new adventure....from regular black bear sightings along the beaches by the Nook to finding ourselves surrounded by large pods of feeding humpback whales for 2 days in a row. Kayaking and paddle boating in the most stunning and pristine scenery on the planet and hiking through the spectacular wilderness trails were finished off with gourmet meals overlooking eagles fishing in the bay. Even our teenagers were blown away and at night loved the games and media rooms at the nook. This is a must do experience for anyone who loves superb fishing, boating and nature at its best, but also appreciates top notch accommodation, service and cuisine. We're already planning our next stay there and can't wait!

Room Tip: All rroms are gorgeous with spectacular ocean and mountain views

My husband and I live in Germany and we went to Canada on vacations. The Eagle Nook was amazing, totally a different experience. Nature wise is one of the best in Canada. We highly recommend it. The Kayak experiences are amazing. We saw in 2 hoursgray and humpback whales, black bears, sea lions, eagles, seals, and much more....For fishermen this is the ideal place!
