• Are both guestrooms on the same level?
Both rooms are on the same floor and share a common hallway, but:
The Blue Heron Room is a ground level southeast-facing guestroom (rear of the house) with tree-filtered views of the open Pacific Ocean & far-away horizon and the coastal rainforest of the Wild Pacific Trail.
The Uncle John Room is a second-story northwest-facing guestroom located curbside and overlooks a forested residence with a small view of the Ucluelet Harbour and inland mountains.
• Are there common guest areas such as a TV room or dining room?
There are no common guest areas at Ocean Mist Guesthouse. We cater to guests seeking a more private B&B experience. Both guest rooms share a private outside B&B entrance and indoor hallway. Breakfast is served directly to each private guestroom.
• Are there stairs leading to the private B&B entrance?
Yes, there are two sets of outside stairs. The first set has 4 steps and the second set has 8 steps including the landing.
• How do you pronounce Ucluelet?
• What does the name Ucluelet mean?
Ucluelet means ‘people of the safe harbour’ in the indigenous Nuu-chah-nulth (Nootka) language.
• What type of clothing should I bring?
Anytime of year it is advisable to bring rain gear/wind breakers and layering of clothing is a good idea. For walking trails, sturdy footwear with good tread is ideal. Shorts and t-shirts are a good choice for summer with warmer clothing for evenings.
• What is it like driving to Ucluelet in the winter?
For Hwy 4, winter tires are required October 1 - March 31.
Check Drive BC for details and current road conditions. There can be snow/slippery conditions around Sutton Pass between Port Alberni and the west coast and other island locations.
