Tidbits from Tim

Tim Hackett - Owner, Long Beach Lodge Resort

January 2024

I hope that you have had a wonderful holiday season, celebrating with family and friends. It is amazing, after all the preparation, how quickly the season comes and goes!
I am always so grateful for the good fortune to be living in such a wonderful place on earth. This year again, I think about all the men, women, and children living terrible lives currently in distant places. It is a great privilege to welcome and assist people arriving in Canada to start a new life, including some wonderful young people coming to our resort.

It is interesting that after some beautiful fall beach weather, we are now suddenly into storm season! In December, we have already experienced some furious winter storms.

Several storms have been so severe that the District of Tofino has had to close the beaches, fearing for people's safety. The power of a winter storm is a sight to behold. The Lodge, built so close to the open ocean, is Tofino’s premier location to observe what nature can throw at us. Again this winter, we hope a storm will not wash the Lodge away!
In addition to our other specials, I wish to announce a special, close to my heart. February is Pet Appreciation Month. We really love our VIP (Very Important Pets) so much that we have decided, in consultation with my pup Maisy, to dedicate a month to celebrate them. Bring your four-legged family member with you and enjoy some unique touches catered especially for them:
  • Pets stay for free in February.
  • Pet photo shoot, date to be announced. 
  • Special treats for our furry friends.
  • Shopping at our Gift Shop for specials for your pup.
We are a proud supporter of the Care Network, a nonprofit organization on the west coast supporting animal rescue and outreach. For every dog that visits during February, we will contribute $50 on their behalf to the Care Network.
I wish the very best to everyone for the New Year. May you enjoy good health, inner peace, and joy.
