Sleep In A Nature Paradise At Middle Beach Lodge
Tofino is paradise. If you are looking for the ultimate west coast escape then Tofino must be in your top three choices. Pristine forests and water are everywhere. Wildlife is in abundance with Black Bears, Eagles and whales all just a short boat ride away. In high season the town is bursting with surfers, hikers and wildlife photographers (amateur and professional alike). My favourite time to visit is either mid Spring before the crowds arrive or mid to late Autumn when steam season hits and all I want to do is watch the surf pound the shoreline. On this visit, I’ve brought my Mom with me for a late Spring escape to Middle Beach Lodge. A private cabin, quality time with my Mom and nothing but glorious views out the windows. I did say Tofino was a paradise, didn’t I?
Middle Beach Lodge is located about 5 minutes by car from the centre of town on the western shores. The lodge is surrounded by forests and has 40 acres of oceanfront viewing. Every room has a view and your closest neighbours is a campground.
Registration is at the main lodge called the Lodge at the Headlands. It is a prime example of classic West Coast architecture in its use of heavy timbers and classic board and batten cedar siding. You feel dropped into the forest.
We have booked one of the cabins that have two bedrooms, a small kitchenette and a living room with patio. Perfect from a Mother and Son getaway. Be sure to identify if you are travelling with or without kids when making your reservation as they do have a lodge with rooms just for those that are 18+. Perfect if you require a kid-free retreat.

Isn’t it perfect? Wonderfully rustic with amazing views and everything you need for a relaxing weekend or week retreat. The wood burning fireplace will come in handy during the autumn storm watching seasons I’m sure. Cuddle up on the couch with a glass of wine, a fire and the sound of the pounding surf. Tofino take me away.
Every morning we stroll over to the Lodge at the Beach for breakfast which is included with our stay. The coffee is from local coffee shop Rhino Coffee and breakfast includes cereals, fruit, and freshly baked pastries. A perfect start to the day.
After breakfast do what we did and take a stroll. There are trails on the property that you can walk on. They are relatively easy and the end destination is magical. We had this entire beach all to ourselves ( I can’t guarantee that in high season). Pick a spot and just relax. If I knew enough yoga poses this would be an awesome place to channel my Yin.
What can I say? Middle Beach Lodge is a truly awesome Tofino accommodation option. With your choice of cabin vs lodge room, adult zone vs family-friendly areas, and views, views and more views it is simply perfect.
