Middle Beach Lodge
Travel Blogs from Tofino
We zijn nu een aantal dagen in onze " middle beach lodgde" in Tofino. Het is een van de mooiste plekken op aarde waar ik tot nu toe geweest ben en het uitzicht vanaf ons hotel/lodge is echt prachtig. Het fenomeen " mist" moeten ze hier hebben uitgevonden, want hij komt zo uit het niets opzetten en voor je het weet zie je bijna niks meer. Ook op het …
Theres not much thats needs to be said about Tofino.
Tofino speaks for itself, a place that has 1650 residents in the winter and doubles in the summer. When we arrived the first thing that struck me about Tofino is how small it is. Now I'm sure I haven't seen every part. But I can say that the parts I did see were more than up to scratch …

We had a great drive on highway 4, which basically cuts through Vancouver Island. The weather was overcast and cool. The sky did not look that inviting so driving through the Alberni Valley was probably the best thing we could have done with our time. We hit the split in the road just before noon and dropped into the visitor center and managed to …
Tofino part 1
Arrived in Tofino yesterday after a 6 hour bus journey! The scenery was absolutely breathtaking. The journey was a little hairy towards the end. Hurtling towards a blind corner of a cliff at 60km/h is somewhat scary!
Tofino reminds me of Findhorn loads o hippys and everywhere is so eco friendly. We can …

Historical Traveler Reviews Middle Beach Lodge Tofino
Such a peaceful place
We stayed here for two nights in July 2004. We stayed in a cabin with a bedroom, a loft room and a sofa bed in the lounge. As there were five adults this was rather a squash but no larger unit was available and we were made aware that space would be restricted. In fact we coped very well as the cabins are well designed. The staff were wonderful, helpful and friendly. The included breakfast of home baked goods was delicious. Housekeeping failed to clean one day and this was done immediately and a bottle of wine delivered by way of an apology. Will definately go back.
We just returned from a week in Tofino. It is a beautiful and remote fishing village, with some of the most exquisite scenery and climate imaginable. We want to return and enjoy a winter storm watch vacation when we can. We stayed at Middle Beach Lodge, mostly based on the recommendations of this website, trip advisor.com. The price was very affordable ($150 CAN) for a beachfront room. While their website, as well as this one, described it as rustic, homey and with smaller rooms, the accolades overwhelmed those descriptions. I wish I had read between the lines. We had a room with a queen size bed, with approximately 3 feet on every side of the bed (including the foot), no closet (clothes were hung on pegs on the wall) and the sink was in the bedroom, taking up more precious space. My boyfriend and I would have to twirl around each other if we were both moving about the room. There was no space at all for opening a suitcase except on top of the bed. Yes, it was very clean, and yes they were very nice, but if I had known just how small the room truly would be, I would have chosen another place. We visited the Wickaninnish (absolutely gorgeous, we tried to move to that place and they were booked) and the Long Beach Inn (another beautiful spot, though with fewer ocean facing rooms). The food at MiddleBeach for dinner is average, typical of a diner. There are much better restaurants in town, especially the Schooner.
I had found the Middle Beach Lodge on the web when i first started planning a trip to Vancouver Island a couple of years ago. Their website is very helpful in showing the rooms and rates. I highly recommend you check it out.
Five times and it just keeps getting better. I cook for a hobby and what a spot for sea food. Staff are super. For a vacation get away you will never forget, try it!! We like the off season. Very quite, very romantic! Mike and Julie
Tofino is a must
My wife and I got engaged on the beach just down from the Middle Beach accomodations. Very nice folks that work there along with some of the best views ever made this one of our favorite trips. If you want serious R&R, bring a few books to read and enjoy the atmosphere to its fullest.
What a place
We have just spent 2 night at the middle beach lodge and as a travel manager I almost cound not fault it we stayed in a "single cabin" which had two single beds "upstairs" and was comfortable for 4 adults.
Although people have commented on the cost of the fixed menu - I would say it was superb expecially as you could go back for 2nd's let alone 3rd's!!!! It was so good. The staff where excellent and the sunsets sensational. The Whale watching package is very good value.
We stayed here for 3 nights & didn't want to leave. We loved the setting, the fresh baked goodies in the morning & evening. Our room was small & simple but very nicely done. It was in the adult-only lodge & had a balcony facing the ocean. We left the door oepn at night so we could hear the ocean. This was exactly wwhat we were looking for...
something peaceful & beautiful. Can't wait to go back.
Like most of you now I also did a lot of online searching for that perfect romantic getaway. I can say that out of the three choices1.
The kind of place they use for a photo shoot. When the weather is good this is a spectacular place - however those days are infrequent.
Northern Pacific coast days are often cloudy, windy and it even rains.
There are slickers and boots at the door of the reception lodge (Hint) However, if you like storms with a fire this is a wonderful place. Food is excellent - lodge style - good staff. Not easy to reach but it is worth the energy. Check the weather forcasts. Reservations a must - sold out for months during high season - June - August
My wife and I went here for our honeymoon, and it is truly a great spot. We stayed in the adult only lodge, and I understand the headlands lodge and cabins have more amenities, so this review mainly applies only to the adult lodge. The adult lodge has no telephone or TV in the rooms (there is a TV room and a pay telephone in the laundry room), which is just what we wanted. Its remote, and you can here and see the ocean and the mists rolling in each night/day. The rooms are small but very cozy and comfortable. (The honeymoon suite is a bit larger w/ a kitchenette). You walk through a coastal rainforest trail to get to the isolated beach. (Middle beach is isolated, Mackenzie beach is larger and shared by two other hotels and a campground--Middle beach lodge is on a point between them and has access to both).
