Middle Beach Lodge is a truly special place. After a beautiful drive up to Tofino we arrived late afternoon, checked in & had delicious homemade cookies! Settled in & set out to explore the grounds. Walking paths to & from areas of resort, had drinks on the deck & appreciated the beauty all around. There are nothing but views on this property, only nature as far as you can see. We were lucky enough to stay for 3 nights in the comfy room after long days of exploring Tofino. Spent a lot of time just sitting...even dared to swim in the crystal clear waters of the bay. Parking was steps away, easy drive in to Tofino for dinner, renting electric bikes, lunch at Shed, drinks/appetizers at Wolf in the Fog & dinner at Shelter. All great food & atmosphere. We originally planned 2 nights but the super staff found us a 3rd night. Staff was fun, interesting and full of information & suggestions. Really enjoyed visiting with them. You definitely can fill at least 3 nights in Tofino two would have been too short. Highly recommend staying at Middle Beach Lodge!

We spent a week at Middle Beach in March 2024 and loved it. It has a very relaxed vibe and the staff go out of there to help you . The lounge is relaxed and a roaring fire is kept going day and night . The breakfasts are quite simple , with limited choices. In this early season evening meals are available if there are sufficient guests. There is typically one option served and all guests dine together - we had fish every time . It was delicious and very reasonably priced and because you all done together makes for good conversation with fellow guests. You can walk to Tofino but it takes about 45 mins. Having a car here would probably be useful .

Middle Beach lodge was referred to us by friends who had stayed there previously. We were not disappointed! We stayed there three nights. The resort is situated directly on the ocean and provided amazing 180 degree views. The resort offers an adult only lodge as well as a separate family lodge and cabins. As an older couple we opted for the adult lodge and enjoyed a most restful and relaxing stay. The sitting room where we were provided a European type breakfast was warm and cozy and allowed us to leisurely read, chat with other guests and just hang out with coffee, tea, hot chocolate and freshly baked cookies after a busy day.

Called for a reservation - much better choice than online booking, as we got a nicer room and better view for a cheaper price! Nice touches: ceramic teapot in room and beautiful common areas. Staff were very helpful with any request, and the food at dinner - a set menu - was outstanding in taste and value. Particularly impressive was the extra effort by staff to accommodate gluten free needs at breakfast and dinner.

We have stayed many times in previous years in the lodge at the Headlands at Middle Beach Lodge . Since our last visit, the rooms have been refreshed with new bathrooms and new windows. With a new roof and decking, the lodge is the same warm and welcoming place as ever. It truly is a gem in a beautiful unspoiled west coast setting. Our room was very clean and comfortable with a welcoming bottle of wine and locally made chocolates. The complementary breakfast is fresh and plentiful with coffee, tea, fresh fruit and baking available all day. We had dinner at the lodge two nights and it was plentiful and delicious. The staff were always friendly, helpful, attentive and professional. They were constantly on hand and even kept the log fire stoked. It rained very heavily for two days and the lodge was very busy but the staff went out of their way to make sure everyone was comfortable. We had a slight dilemma involving our room and the front desk staff dealt with the issue immediately and very much to our satisfaction. The service was exceptional and we’ve travelled extensively in the U.S and Europe. If you are looking for a spa treatment or glitzy gym, you won’t find it here. Peaceful calm, unequaled scenery and unpretentious comfort is here in abundance. We feel very fortunate to have this world class accommodation within driving distance of our home and have promised ourselves another visit soon.

We had a 2 bedroom rustic style cabin . The 2 nd bedroom was up a ladder mezzanine style. The cabin was clean and comfortable in a compact way ! Great deck with superb sea views. The self service breakfast was absolutely amazing, with really delightful fresh baked goods. The lodge had a few short walking trails and an super easy trail to the beach . We’d definitely recommend this place.

Wonderful location overlooking the sea! Great rustic room which accommodated our family of 5. Good continental breakfast and the lovely lounge area was great for relaxing. Staff were really helpful particularly with information about the road closures. Can’t wait to return again in the future!

What a cool place to stay. We stayed in one of their tree house suites. It was excellent. It had a kitchenette,a deck and a soaker tub surrounded by a rain forest. We couldn’t see the beach from our tree house but there are other ones with an ocean view. Each building is separate. There are paths through out the property with access to two different beaches. You could also walk to Tofino through pathways. They off dinner several nights and have a continental breakfast. We did have the crab dinner it was very good. You need to book your dinner in advance. They have limited seating. We had a dog with us. There wasn’t any issues.

We ended our car trip to through the Rockies with a stop to Tofino (booked ferry ahead). It was exactly what we expected to see and get from the pictures. We stayed for 4 days in a room which had a well equipped kitchenette with even a Nespresso coffee maker. Our bed was also very comfortable. We had a stunning view from our balcony and the whole lodge exudes tranquility - the smell of red cedar was intoxicating. We enjoyed the complementary continental breakfast which was always well stocked. We ate at the formal restaurant one evening’s and the food was delicious (salmon was served that day). All the staff was pleasant - special shout out to René who was very attentive, funny and helpful. Trails lead you to MacKenzie Beach on the left or Middle Beach on the right of lodge, from which you can take other trails to Tonquin Beach which leads you to Tofino (about 45 min - stick to the left). We highly recommend this place - hope to go back one day!
