Himwitsa Lodge - Premium Tofino Accomodations

We are First Nations owned and operated since 1994.

Member of Nuu-Chah-Nulth Nation, Lewis George is the Hereditary Chief. Both Lewis, and his wife Cathy, are the owners and operators of our fine establishments!

We are located in the heart of what some may call "Downtown" Tofino, as our community is a very small area we are within a few minutes walk of all amenities and local shops.

The ideal location for the enjoyment of your stay here in beautiful Tofino, B.C.

You are meters away from the water's edge that looks out towards Meares Island with the majestic Lone Cone Mountain towering over it. Our property is a 12-minute walk from the beach. It features a fish shop and a native art store on-site!

A private entrance and deck with sea views lead to every suite at Lodge Himwitsa. Guests can relax on the sofa bed in the living room and watch satellite TV.

Pacific Rim National Park Reserve and Wilf Rock Fishing are within 15 km from the hotel. This property also has one of the best-rated locations in Tofino! Couples particularly love the location — they rated it 9.6 for a two-person trip!

Below, you will find a description of each of our comfortable rooms. Or, you can book your accommodations right now.

Experience the Natural Beauty of Tofino, British Columbia!

Tofino Inner Harbour to the Pacific Ocean is right at our doorstep! Watch ocean-faring boats and float planes come and go from the walkable harbourfront.

Big Tree Trail on Mears Island is 3.9 km away, and accessed by a local boat tour offered right next door to us by Remote Passages ($25 per person) which we highly recommend. It is absolutely breathtaking to enjoy the boat ride and unmatched beauty of the temperate rainforest on your journey.

For those seeking adventure and are into hiking, the majestic Lone Cone Mountain is 5 km accessed by boat tour. The Tofino Water Taxi is within walking distance.

The best part about our neighbourhood is the bounty of wildlife that is on constant display from your balcony. If you are really lucky, you may get a rare sighting of a grey whale, a pod of orcas, or a humpback whale hanging out in the harbour.

Of the many species of birds and ducks on the coast, you can catch a glimpse of the most prominently revered bald eagles which are abundant in the area. You may also see sea otters, sea lions, and seals amongst many other west coast species of wildlife right outside your comfortable accommodations on the west coast of Vancouver Island facing the Pacific Ocean.

  • Lydia - Netherlands (Rated 9.6/10)

    “The room was beautiful and very comfortable. And the view of the lake, whaou!!! Amazing. We loved it. The room is well decorated with Indian arts…The location of this small hotel is perfect, near shops, restaurants, activities.”

  • Simon - United Kingdom (Rated 10/10)

    “The location is absolutely fantastic. Sea views and walking distance to everything. The staff are exceptionally helpful and the rooms are very spacious, well-appointed and comfortable. The balcony…is extra special - sat there relaxing after a day sightseeing and whale watching was very relaxing. Great value and thoroughly recommend.”

  • Cynthia - Canada (Rated 10/10)

    “Wish we could have stayed longer! Great view of the sunset from our balcony overlooking the water. The gentleman that checked us in helped carry our bags and baby‘s stroller up the stairs. They left us a complimentary bottle of wine and smoked salmon to compensate for the construction going on elsewhere on the property (although it did not impact us at all).”

  • Maxine - United Kingdom (Rated 10/10)

    “Friendly, spotlessly clean. Will come back again.” “Wonderful room…overlooking the ocean - fabulous anytime and especially at sunset! The staff were brilliant and helped with everything we needed when we asked. Highly recommended.”

  • William - Canada (Rated 10/10)

    “Magical. Romantic a memory of a lifetime! Can’t think of anything other than my fave news station Fox News was not available for viewing. Outstanding view. The manager was so friendly and accomodating. Loved the art store. Tofino was beautiful!”
