The He-Tin-Kis Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 July 2013

We stayed for two nights. The accommodation is a great mixture of modern but traditional style. Lots of wood elements, but very stylish. Perfect for a base to hike the wild pacific trail. Ucluelet is a small village, not much to see. It has a huge and very comfy bath tube. The accommodation has a micro wave and fridge to use. And least but not last the view to the sea bay is spectaculare!

My wife and I stayed here two nights with our 2yo daughter. It is very clean and a really nice place to stay. We loved the architecture and decor. There are only three guest units, so it is very quiet. No amenities like pool or anything, but there is a small private beach just below and a larger beach with great tide pools just a short walk away. It is also walking distance to a loop section of the "Wild Pacific Trail". It's probably a 15-20 minute walk to "downtown" Ucluelet, or a 3 minute drive. The views from the patios are what make this accommodation. I saw a humpback whale while sipping coffee on the patio one morning.

This lodge was a gem among the stones. The He Tin-Kis Lodge was more than a pleasant surprise. The accommodations are classic: materials such as beautiful stone, natural woods, a spacious jetted Jacuzzi, and high vaulted ceilings;we were provided with a comfortable, clean, and luxurious stay. The oceanfront location provides a scenic view where one can take advantage of the lodge's paddle boards, or utilize the spectacular trails only moments from the private entrance of your suite. Yet what impressed upon us the most was the personable, quality customer care that we received from the owners and staff. We will definitely return!

The lodge is in a fantastic location overlooking an inlet on the edge of the Pacific Rim National Park with a delightful walk around the nearby headland and very close to wildlife. I would describe the accommodation as rustic boutique and we were very comfortable. The welcoming owners share the small block but we were very private. We would have no hesitation in returning.

Room Tip: Only 3 to choose from but all overlook the inlet - if you want to go book early.

A beautiful lodge on a cliff overlooking a bay in the Pacific makes for a very relaxed and refreshing holiday. The rooms are upscale and definately a notch or two above your average hotel room. Spacious and tastefully decorated with trees in from of the balcony make for a very relaxing environment. The bed is comfortable as is the sofa cum bed and couch. The bathroom is clean and spacious as well. To wake up to the call of an eagle or the sound of the waves on the shore take you away from the trials of everyday life. The hosts are friendly and accomodating. All in all, I would highly recommend a stay at the He-Tin-Kis Lodge.

Lovely lodge in a beautiful location. Just a shame we only had two nights there really, could have stayed longer.

We were in room one, a modern good sized unit with kitchenette area and nice balcony. The bathroom was very nice with jacuzzi and a good powerful shower.

I would definitely recommend staying here and return.

Perched on the tree lined cliffs above a beautiful inlet, the setting of this lodge could not be any more beautiful. We stayed two nights in one of the suites benefitting from a jacuzzi bath and a balcony opening out into the trees and the cove beyond. The location is so peaceful with usually just the sound of the sea gently lapping on the beach below. The suite itself is very well appointed for three star accommodation with facilities to eat in such as basic crockery, cutlery, a fridge and microwave. It's not the height of luxury but for a three star site at this price, you absolutely can't complain. This place is all about location, location, location! So, if you're looking for the perfect antidote to the general hustle and bustle of Vancouver then Ucluelet and the He-Tin-Kis lodge are perfect.
