Great service and amazing hosts! Definitely staying here again. This fantastic house comes with an unbelievable view and a great location. Bobbi, Jay, and their lovely daughter were very helpful and welcoming. The home made breakfast was also amazing... everything was fresh and delicious. I highly recommend this place and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Bobbi, Jay, and Auley made us feel very welcome. Our family of 4 stayed in the two main floor rooms. Both rooms were clean and had big, bright windows. We went surfing at close by Chesterman Beach (walking distance) and Jay built us a fire so we could roast s'mores! Breakfast was lovely. Highly recommended.

Great B&B in Tofino with very charming and helpful hosts. The house is a very beautiful and modern place right on the inland water. There is a great shared living room and kitchen area where you can hang out and make yourself a cup of tea in the evening. In the morning they serve an all home made delicious breakfast.... More

We stayed for 1 night in this beautiful B&B. The location is just great, the house sits right on the water with a beautiful view over peaceful Jensens bay. And it is just a short walk to Chesterman beach. The owners and their helper Theresa are superfriendly and make you feel right at home. We will definetively come back.

We lucked into this guesthouse at the last minute. The owners were away but Theresa managed all the guests beautifully. She made blueberry pancakes for breakfast. It's across the highway from Chesterman Beach which is great to walk even on a foggy day. I'd return to this guesthouse in a flash.

Our stay at the Black Bear Guesthouse was excellent. Welcoming hosts. wonderful views over the bay, great breakfasts, lovely bathrooms, great bedroom, excellent location. If you're a vegetarian, it's worth reminding the chef a couple of times so you can avoid the lovely sausages, but these are small potatoes....

We stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of June 2013 at this hidden gem which provided a level of comfort and service that many a higher priced hotel with more resources could not match. On arrival the house looked stunning and we were met by Bobby & Auley. We stayed in the Osprey room which was just amazing. large... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blackbear Guest House. We stayed 2 nights in the Osprey Room - the wall of windows offers a wonderful view of the inlet; the bed and linens were very comfortable and the claw-foot bathtub and cosy bathrobes were a treat. Jay lit a campfire for us and we were able to enjoy the sunset... More
