At the Long Beach Lodge Resort, your family will enjoy the best in rustic luxury that Canada’s West Coast has to offer. Set in Tofino on the edge of Cox Bay, the lodge features beautiful views of the water and proximity to the island’s best attractions like Pacific Rim National Park and the Clayoquot Sound. You can meander along a deserted beach, hike through the rainforest, and admire the wild ocean — all in the same day.
Families can choose to stay in a room or suite in the lodge itself, or enjoy more space and privacy by booking a private two-bedroom cottage. The 1000 square-foot cottages are modern, charmingly decorated, convenient, and luxurious, with fully equipped kitchens, bathrobes and towels, complimentary bath accessories, private hot tubs on the patio, cast-iron gas fireplaces, and more. If you’re stuck inside on a rainy day, you’ll appreciate the DVD player and board games as well!
Whether you stay in the lodge or a cottage, all resort guests have access to the Surf Club Adventure Center, which features a hot pool, sauna, and stand-up paddleboarding and surf lessons. You’ll also enjoy the variety of on-resort dining options, whether it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner in the Great Room, seafood from the afternoon Apres Surf menu, decadent desserts from the pastry chef, lunch-to-go if you want to picnic, or an outdoor meal at the SandBar Bistro. There’s plenty for kids to enjoy no matter where you’re eating.

Excellent staff, extremely accommodating. The restaurant is superb, and the food just melts in your mouth. We have been coming to this resort for the past 13 years, and we were lucky enough to have our wedding there. Would not stay anywhere else.
A friend and I spent three nights at Long Beach Lodge in February. We had an extraordinary time. Our room, in the lodge, opened out onto the ground floor, and directly on to the beach. The room is comfortable and nicely appointed. But above everything is the service. All the staff were so friendly and accommodating. Long Beach Lodge manages to combine classy with comfortable - not an easy thing to do. Go!
