Middle Beach Lodge

I recently stayed at Middle Beach Lodge in Tofino. If you know me, you know that I try and go to Tofino as often as possible. I hadn’t been to Middle Beach Lodge before and was excited to check out this popular lodge resort. They offer many types of accommodations such as lodge suites, attached cabins and single cabins for ultimate privacy.


My travelling partner and I stayed in a main floor ocean facing triplex cabin. There was a cabin attached beside us and above us, like a triangle. We didn’t see who else was staying there, all entrances are private.


Our cabin had a bedroom and a loft suite with a single bed. It also had one bathroom.


The couch was also a sofa bed.


We had a little kitchenette that suited our needs. We ended up eating out for the majority of our trip as we were so close to town.


The bedroom had a queen bed with ocean views.


Our cabin had great views of Mackenzie Beach. Middle Beach Lodge is located between two beaches, Mackenzie Beach and Middle Beach. There was an epic rainstorm one night and the waves were pounding on these rocks so hard just in front of our place.


This is Middle Beach Lodge and the view of it when you are on Middle Beach. Our cabin was on the other side of this outcropping and we were looking at Mackenzie Beach.


We woke up to eagle calls one morning and saw this eagle in a large tree just behind our cabin.


We went out exploring for the day and came back to him still in the same tree with a female eagle at his side.


One of the great things about Middle Beach Lodge is the lodge itself. Its a large, cozy space with beautiful ocean views. There are board games to play, oversized couches, and a large roaring fire. There is a large dining room here as well. Dinner is served here nightly at one specific time. The menu is released in the morning and 15 people are required to have the dinner proceed. The night we were interested in the dinner, there were not enough people so we were unable to have this experience. Next time though! I have heard very good things about it. The menus always looked delicious and featured local ingredients as much as possible.



One of the best things about Middle Beach is their awesome complimentary breakfast. Its self service and had delicious locally made bread, fresh house made cinnamon buns, meats, cheeses, hard boiled eggs, cereals and more. I never got tired of eating this breakfast and it was so nice not to have to think about breakfast once you got up. It was a great way to start my day in Tofino.


This is some of my breakfast one morning. I enjoyed it while looking out at the ocean and thinking about what adventures we would have that day.

There is a sunset look out point on the grounds of Middle Beach Lodge.


The sunset look out has great views of Middle Beach.


We spotted another eagle while we were exploring on Middle Beach. It was perched in trees just over the lodge again.

I really enjoyed my stay at Middle Beach Lodge. There was so much great eagle activity here. They had so many fantastic services like breakfast and dinner on site as well as lots of places to enjoy the incredible West Coast scenery. We were so close to town and it only took us about five minutes to drive to all our favorite restaurants and shops. I would definitely come back to Middle Beach Lodge on future Tofino trips.
