Tidbits from Tim

Tim Hackett - Owner, Long Beach Lodge Resort

October 2022

Finally some rain! While I - like everyone else, really enjoyed our record setting gorgeous weather... I have felt quite guilty knowing that our salmon, forests and gardens desperately needed rain. It was quite shocking to see all the rivers driving into Tofino, just mere trickles compared to their normal abundance of water at this time of year. Even the bears were confused, not knowing if they should be looking to den for the winter. I believe this is more evidence of climate change, coming upon us much faster than the scientists ever speculated. Imagine seeing people sunbathing on our beach in mid-October!

Storm season may begin in November, we just don’t know! November is a great time of year to visit, it's the beginning of the real surf season.

Take advantage of our winter promotion, Become a Friend, Feel Like Family, and enjoy a 30% discount on room rates. Extended stays, with a room or cottage with a cozy gas fireplace is really a nice winter break for sure. Also enjoy our wonderful winter meals prepared by our chef Shawn Snelling and his crew.

We are humbled, again this year, with so many great TripAdvisor reviews, they make all our efforts seem so worthwhile. I think especially of our wedding couples who comment so positively, it is really rewarding to know that we were able to help make their wedding day so special. We love weddings!

Best wishes, Tim
