Nature's Edge


The view from the balcony of our room.

I have been wanting to go to The Wickaninnish Inn located in Tofino, British Columbia for years.  Last year, we finally made it there!  

Relais & Châteaux property, described on the hotel website as "Rustic Elegance On Nature's Edge", was exactly that.  It wasn't overly fancy.  Very subdued.  Like a luxury country cabin.  We had a great room and the weather was perfect for me, nice and cool.  You do feel as if you're on the edge of nature.  Waves crashing on the rocks, birds squawking overhead, the chilly breeze coming through the sliding door of the bedroom patio.

We spent two nights here, exploring the town during the day and enjoying the local restaurants at night. 

One of the courses on the tasting menu, Rock Crab & Potato Pave

On one of our nights, we dined at the hotel restaurant, The Pointe. We chose to do the tasting menu, a first for us.  That meal was the most expensive we've ever had, setting us back $511.00.  My step-father rolled over in his grave twice that night!

Overall, we had a wonderful visit and I'm so happy to be able to check this place off my wish list.

Port Wine, an in-room gift from the hotel.
