We stayed in the "cedar bark cabin". It is a gorgeous single loft bedroom home with an extra portable bed in the living room, a dining table, and a full kitchen (minus a microwave). The smell of cedar every time we entered was heavenly. The home appears handcrafted from wood with an ecologically sensitive feel - compostable toilet, line-dried linens, and no TV! The break from the television was so peaceful; unfortunately, we were too exhausted from our day of (attempting to) surf to play the board games that were provided. The location in the woods was absolutely quiet. We slept like babies on the comfy beds. The best part was the outdoor hot shower nestled in the privacy of the woods. Took a little while to work up enough courage to use it (and to make sure the neighbours couldn't see us :)) but, now that we've tried it, it's hard to go back to our boring indoor shower. The only thing we felt was missing was some coffee/tea on our first morning since we hadn't shopped the night before for supplies and the cabin didn't come with the B&B breakfast since it has a kitchen. We will definitely return when in Tofino again.
