Culture & Community

We love what we do and where we live! Perched on nature's edge, the Inn's remote location is an undeniable draw for those looking to experience the rugged wilderness of the Pacific Ocean on Vancouver Island's West Coast.

When big surf is in your front yard and old-growth rainforest surrounds, the opportunities for exploring are endless. Our team members take to the trails or their boards on their days off and enjoy the simplicity of small-town living.

Thriving in Nature

As a bustling destination for visitors, the town of Tofino is vibrant year-round. With restaurants, cafes and a thriving arts scene, we are proud supporters of numerous community efforts and encourage our employees to get involved.

Our location allows us to attract like-minded individuals who are passionate about furthering our efforts toward environmental and community sustainability. Located in Clayoquot Sound, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, our Sustainability Committee is made up of volunteers from every department who identify best practices and continuously seek new ways of carrying forward the McDiarmid family’s vision.
