We stayed two nights at Fortune Cove in early April. One night in Cypress Cabin -- the one with the upstairs bedroom lookout, and the second night in Fir Cabin.

Cypress Cabin was worth the extra $$ per night. The upstairs bedroom lookout is fantastic. It's also newer and cleaner than the other cabin. This is really important if you have any dog,cat or dust sensitivity/allergy. I sneezed constantly while while staying in Fir, but had no problems sleeping in Cypress. The bathroom in Cypress has a standard-sized tub and a much larger bathroom overall. The kitchen was clean and fully equipped with teas, condiments, salt, pepper and clean utensils and pots/pans. Spectacular green rain forest canape view from every window in the cabin. No curtains at all, but you have 100% privacy.

Fir Cabin is cute with a great layout. Smaller than Cypress, it could use a sweeping. It's not dirty, there are just a few cobwebs between the wooden ceiling/structure beams and in some corners. It's more rustic. Avoid this cabin if you have pet allergies. Fir cabin heats up quickly and has an amazing green canape view from its wall-to-wall windows. The kitchenette is spotless, no worries there.

The location is perfect. It's about 3 mintues drive into "downtown" Ucluelet, yet it's completely removed from civilization as it's tucked away down a long gravel road just off the town's main road. There are no curtains on the windows but you have complete privacy as there is nobody else on the property and you are surrounded by forest on all sides. Great water pressure and hot water but the shower couldn't be any smaller in Fir.

I'd give Fortune Cove a 5 if it had been slightly cleaner, but it's still highly recommended!

We stayed with our 10 year old in the Fir cabin. Abby and Mark have built their own home and 2 beautiful cabins they rent on their cove. We saw deer and enjoyed the stillness from the more crowded areas.

The cabin's kitchen is fully furnished with hot chocolate, coffee, pots, pans, an excellent gas grill, and all the implements you might need. My husband loves cooking on holiday and when he decided to try his hand at the local dungeness crab, Abby and Mark were ready to offer their large crab pot. When we needed more pepper, they had their large pepper mill for us. The wood stove was cozy and nice for the cooler evenings and after our kayaking adventure.

They had wonderful ideas of things to do and see and were pleased with our enjoyment of the area. I'd love to return one day in the early summer or fall.

We stayed in the Cypress cabin and it felt more like a home than just a place to stay. The post and beam cabin was warm and cozy and well appointed. The kitchen has everything you need, way more than a few pots and pans and dishes for four. The wood stove warmed the room during the rainy evening and we read and played games.

The cabins are at the end of a short gravel road just on the edge of Ucluelet but they are isolated from any neighbours. There is a short boardwalk to the cove and other than a single sailboat moored in the cove all that is visible is the bay and rainforest. We saw lots of birds and a raccoon.

It was only a five or ten minute walk to the nearest store and a few minutes more to the centre of Ucluelet. We spent our brief visit walking the beaches in the National Park but next time we'll have to walk the ocean trails around the village.

No soap, dirty towels, fridge not cleaned out, filthy BBQ, in a general state of disrepair outside. There is clearly NOT a "NO SMOKING" policy and the interior of the cabin reeked of stale smoke.

We are fishermen and we have stayed in some pretty rustic cottages however I would not recommend Fortune Cove for the above reasons.

Yellow cedar cabins with log burning stoves, surrounded by forest and wildlife, spitting distance to cove and walking distance to Ucluelet, perfect!!
We stayed in both the cypress and the fir cabins in the week we stayed on Vancouver Island. We originally only planned to stay for 2 nights as we wanted to travel around the island a bit but ended up going back to Fortune cove because it is sooooo nice.
The cypress cabin is the bigger of the two but both are very comfortable and cozy.
Within half an hour of arriving we had our first bear encounter!! Then there was deer on the driveway, bald eagles in the trees, seals in the cove, starfish as big as dinner plates, lizard hiding under the car and if you walked on the sand when the tide was out you get squirted with water by clams hiding in the sand.
Abby and Mark are great hosts and make you feel very welcome.
Both our kids who are aged 7 and 5 wanted to stay forever!!

We spent a week in the larger Cypress cabin, and by the end of the week we wanted to move in for good!! We had our 5 year old with us and he just loved staying up in the loft and seeing the great view every morning. It was a two minute walk to the bay and a world of exploring for a little guy and his mom and dad. It was also close to the main road, but not so close that you heard any noise at all. The owners are really nice and helped us out with anything we needed - which wasn't much! As a previous review said there was no television, internet and didn't see any satellite dishes or electrical outlets on the trees y the cove - but that's just what we expected and just what we wanted!!

By chance we ended up there during "uke days" - which was a good break. We had fun down at the "fairgrounds" and the parade was great. If we ever go out to the coast as a family again we'll stay there for sure!

Stayed in the Fir cabin (the small one) and it was more than enough space for two people and two dogs. The cabins are beautiful, and the location is PERFECT! It's so nice to come 'home' to your own little space with a nice warm fireplace! Behind the cabins is a little beach where you can literally dig up clams! Had so much fun here! Who needs internet or TV when there is so much to do and so little time! Mark and Abbey were extremely nice and helpful and filled with local information. Wish we could have stayed longer!

We’ve been here 3 times now - the large Cypress cabin is our favourite but both ca1bins are comfortable. Beds are great, nice linens, lots of hot water. Kitchenette in both - works so well for our fishing trips. Our dog likes it too!

We stayed at the cypress cabin for two nights. The cabin was great! Clean, private, with great views! Great location! Close to town and short drive to Tofino. We really enjoyed our stay- no complaints- and will be back!

Awesome Cabins tucked right into the forest with beautiful ocean views. A very short walk to the water, took some beautiful photos of wildlife from right outside the cabin.
Reasonably priced for how much space there is inside! Lots of room in the kitchen, awesome to have a wood stove on chilly nights. Love how rustic and "west coasty" the cabin was! We will return!
Only negative thing I can say; there were SO many giant spiders. But, what do you expect from a house surrounded by trees! They kept the visit exciting!
