My friends from England and I recently stayed at Black Bear Guesthouse. The accommodations were fantastic, clean, well-designed and it had everything we needed. The best part was the close proximity to Chesterman Beach--a 5 minutes walk. If you are looking for quiet elegance for a getaway, Black Bear Guesthouse is the perfect location in Tofino.

We had a lovely walk along the beach just a few minutes walk across the road on our first night there. The owners are very nice and helpful but you won't see them much when you are self catering but you... More

We stayed for two nights in the cedar room of the black bear guesthouse and enjoyed it a lot - everything is styled perfectly and thoughtfully arranged with love - modern, minimalistic, clean and cosy.

Seems that all the great kudos for this destination are for the upstairs over the garage suite & from when this was a bed & breakfast; which I was under the impression was still in place when I booked through booking.com a week ago but was subsequently informed by the owner was no longer in place. The "cedar suite" which... More

This is a wonderful B&B in a serene location. The breakfast we had here was, hands-down, the best breakfast we had on our whole 3-week trip!

This B&B is beautiful. Tucked in a small inlet, with a nice view. The house is gorgeous, wooden beams and woodwork throughout. It was tranquil, comfortable beds and good food. Breakfast was all local foods, Tofino coffee and local ingredients.
