We embarked on an 18 day road trip (with our dogs) from San Diego to Ucluelet in mid May - working our way through the Pacific Northwest along the way. Out of all of our stops, Ucluelet has become one of our new favorites mainly because of Terrace Beach Resort!
The pictures on the website are great, but they don't do it justice. The resort is beautiful - set on stilts along Terrace Beach surrounded by trees, and butting right up to the Wild Pacific Trail. We had a cold, foggy, and rainy drive across the island - when we arrived at 5pm it was about 40 degrees and windy. Since they new we would be arriving late, they had the lights and the fire on for us - we arrived to the most inviting cabin imaginable! When we stepped out on the living room balcony to take in the amazing (but chilly) view of the beach we were *so happy* to have such a warm and inviting place to settle into.
The cabin itself (#5 Amphitrite) was very well laid out and appointed - we didn't need 2 bedrooms for just the 2 of us (the smaller cabin was booked) - so we mainly utilized the 2nd (living room/kitchen/bathroom) and 3rd floor (bedroom/half bath/jacuzzi tub). The beds were firm, but comfy - and the jacuzzi tub on the 3rd floor with the view of Terrace Beach was spectacular! I waffled between getting a cabin with an outdoor jacuzzi on the deck - but considering how cold it was, watching the rain and wind through the trees from the comfort of your jacuzzi tub was the best choice!
The fact that they not only accept dogs but welcome them made this place that much more awesome! They give them a treat at check in, and have wash stations and dog towels available for cleaning them off after hikes. The cabins were very dog friendly with hardwood floors and leather couches - we didn't see any signs of previous dogs so the place was nice and clean.
The resident bald eagle's nest was right outside our door -and the path the the Wild Pacific Trail was about 20 feet away. We had two balcony's to enjoy - and the bottom story balcony had a private path down to the beach. We brought groceries with us, but did order Pizza from Romano's the first night - it was fast and surprisingly good.
Overall, our time in Ucluelet was the highlight of our trip and can't wait to be back!
