Black Bear Guesthouse
Ranked #12 of 41 Tofino B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 December 2013

We stayed here in October 2013 for 3 nights and have to say it was outstanding. Rooms are very comfortable and breakfast is superb. Bobbi and Jay were great hosts and really made us feel at home, we spent hours chatting with them. Both Bobbi and Jay have a great eye for detail and really know how to make people feel comfortable. The beds are really comfortable and we both slept like babies. The location is excellent backing onto the mud flats in Tofino. It was foggy the first two days we stayed and suddenly on the third day the fog cleared and the most spectacular view was revealed. We got some great tips on what to do in Tofino and saw some amazing wildlife. If we're in Tofino again we'll stay here.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.

Just wrapping up a thanksgiving weekend stay at the Black Bear Guesthouse and we are so glad we chose this over all the other choices we had available. Bobbi and Jay have been so accomodating and we've pretty much had the house to ourselves for the weekend! We've shared the Blackbear and Inlet room with our friends and it has turned out to be great value ($250/night for the off season for both rooms for four people). The house is absolutely gorgeous and clean, the rooms are spacious, the beds are super comfy and the house is well laid out so that even if it was full of guests you wouldn't notice the other people that much. Breakfast was phenomenal - fresh granola, fresh fruit, delicious omlettes... The furniture in the common areas is a bit dated, but other than that I wouldn't change a thing! If we were to come back to Tofino I would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at the Black Bear in mid Sept 2013 for 2 nights and whilst we had a small room (it was a last minute booking), it was well and truly made up for the service, quality of the inn and the breakfasts. The hosts were fabulous! Taking great care to tell us about area activities and restaurants and their attention to detail in the inn with their art work and furnishings was 10/10. They lit an outdoor fire for us on our last night which topped it off! Breakfasts were top restaurant quality - very fresh produce, ample serving sizes and exemplary presentation. If we are fortunate enough to ever travel back to Tofino, we will definitely stay at the Black Bear Guesthouse!

Room Tip: The room we had was very very small so if this is not suitable for you, ensure you book one of the o...

We stayed at the black bear for 3 nights at the end of September 2013. The welcome we had from bobbi and jay was very warm and friendly nothing was too much trouble, the house is beautiful with a great outdoor area to sit and enjoy the amazing views.
We stayed in the family suite with two bedrooms and a bathroom and they were very nicely decorated and one has great views over the lake, the other faces the front of the house and although nicely done could have done with a mirror and a chest of drawers for things that couldn't be hung up.
The breakfast set you up for the day and was five star.
We felt very happy and relaxed in this beautiful house and would definitely recommend it and we hope we're lucky enough to be able to return sometime in the future.

We stayed at the Black Bear BB for 3 nights and felt like home in this hidden paradise!The house is located in a dream location, absolutely clean, extraordinarily comfortable, and Bobbi and Jay make you feel like home. They ensure you enjoy your stay in Tofino.
No words can describe the amazing breakfast they prepare you!
With the weather a bit rainy the house is definitely the place to rest, relax, read a book and seize the moment.
Thanks for having us!

Last minute book in! Thanks for having us -- we shared the main floor bathroom with another couple we didn't know -- but that was just fine with us (especially since we booked last minute). Super clean, comfy... and the breakfast was amazing! They ensured we felt right at home and gave us great suggestions on places to eat after our day trip to Hot Springs Cove! A little drive from the center of Tofino... but great location to Chesterman beach!

This is a truly amazing place - gorgeous, upmarket accommodation in a lovely location right on the water near the town of Tofino. Bobbi and Jay can't do enough for their guests and the room was luxurious as well as being really spacious, comfortable, and clean with a beautiful sea view. The guesthouse itself is really nicely designed with plenty of room to sit outside as well as in the living room area. Breakfast was a high point, beautifully presented and delicious. The only thing that would have made it completely perfect would be a tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Overall however it is one of the loveliest places I have ever stayed and I highly recommend it.
