I decided to take a couple of days out of my week to drive down to Tofino to stay at The Shoreline. Work has been crazy busy the past couple of weeks and so a quiet couple of days in a cabin was exactly what I needed. We were hoping for hot weather, lots of sunshine, and maybe even a little bit of beach bumming but unfortunately, it was rainy the days we were there. Although some how, even rainy weather is better in Tofino.

We got to stay in the beautiful cabin suite 4 at The Shoreline for the 2 nights we were in Tofino and It was everything. The cozy wood interior mixed with the hip beachy west coast decor gives it the perfect après surf feel. But even though we didn’t surf while we were there, it was still a beautiful place to stay.

This cabin is perfect for groups of 2-4 as the sofa actually pulls out to be a double bed as well. It’s on the lower level of the second A-frame cabin and offers a private deck area, waterfront views, full kitchen, full bath, and a single bed nook if you decide to have a 5th person. The living room opens up to a stunning view of a little dock at the end of the street and the surrounding waters and mountains. Even on a misty rain day, it was the most relaxing view to wake up to and see in the morning. There’s even a bit of cover right outside your door so you can enjoy your coffee outdoors without getting rained on.


We spent a lot of our time going between restaurants and then back home for naps, boardgames, and Netflix binging. Despite the 180 in our plans (we were planning on hiking, kayaking, and going on bear watching tours), it turned out to be the perfect 3 days and was exactly what I needed.

The check-in desk is usually open until around 4pm—so if you’re checking in past 4pm, they just leave your cabin’s door unlocked with the key on the kitchen counter. Everyone was extremely accommodating and made sure we had everything we need for our trip. They prepared beach towels, coffee, and even had umbrellas ready for us when we asked. You can tell that the keepers of this boutique hotel really love this place and they work hard to take good care of it.

They cabins themselves were originally under a different branding and owner, but they made the switch over to being The Shoreline in 2015. Although you can tell the cabins were older themselves, they did an amazing job keeping it in great condition and decorating it in a modern way.

There’s a total of 5 different suites that you can stay in, with their biggest one being the A-Frame House. That one sleeps 4-6 comfortably, and even has it’s own outdoor, ocean-view hot tub on the patio. There was no one staying in the house on our second night so we asked if we could take a peek inside and snap some photos. Of course they were amazing and let us do so. Check out that stunning house here. If we had more people I definitely would’ve opted to stay here because it was BEAUTIFUL. There’s even a little fireplace in the middle of the living space with firewood provided. Overall, it’s just got the perfect summer cabin (or storm-chasing cabin) vibes and I can’t wait to go back.

Have you been to Tofino before? Where did you stay?
