My Wife and I had the Suite to ourselves all week long, the accommodation and facilities were superb and the Hosts Bobbi and Jay where very nice and caring. Having a hot-tub all week long was so cool too.

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...

This is a truly amazing place - gorgeous, upmarket accommodation in a lovely location right on the water near the town of Tofino.

We stayed at Black Bear with another couple in the two main floor guest rooms. With the weather being a bit rainy, we made good use of the beautiful common area with the cozy couches and fire place. Bobbi and Jay have a spectacular home and, with the help of their charming little girl Auley, made us feel very welcome....

This was our second trip to Tofino where we spent a couple of nights at the Black Bear. Bobbie and Jay have a beautiful home in a spectacular location, and both of our breakfasts were delicious. Fresh-baked bread, homemade granola, lots of fruit, and special breakfasts for our toddler. They are excellent hosts!
