History of Ucluelet;
Ucluelet (You-Clue-Let), named by the Nuu-Chah-Nulth Indians, means "safe harbour." Having been inhabited by the Nuu-chah-nulth people for thousands of years, the territory has a significant history. A rich natural eco system evolved as Vancouver Island became isolated from the mainland, retaining a great diversity of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish species. Located 62 miles west of Port Alberni and 26 miles South of Tofino, Ucluelet has long been known as the Gateway to the Pacific Rim.
The scenic seaside village of almost 2000 is embraced by mountains and dramatic views of the Pacific Ocean.
Spectacular Storm Watching (November to March);
Pacific storms create ideal conditions for dramatic waves.
Enormous breakers pound the rocky coast, sometimes sending waves into the trees. Spectacular storm watching can be had from the privacy of your own oceanfront suite at The He-Tin-Kis Lodge. You'll be amazed by the intensity of the winter weather, and the magnitude of the waves. The lodge offers front row seats for storm watching.

My wife and I stayed here in September/October 2008 for 4 days and had a great time. The accommodation was absolutely spotless and very comfortable. We went for lots of walks - especially along the Wild Pacific Trail - a walk not to be missed. Our only bugbear was trying to find the place !! - a very minor point though. I would recommend this "Lodge" to anyone.

My daughter and I have had the opportunity to stay at the He-Tin-Kis Lodge on several occasions. With an excellent loction in a sheltered bay at the waters edge, terrific walking trails at your doorstep, and the wonderful, invigorating ocean view beyond, it has so much to offer. The self-contained units are stylish and comfortable, with a private deck overlooking the water, amenities to allow simple meals to be prepared within in the unit, and a soaker tub to relax in after a day of enjoying any of the many activities Ucluelet has to offer.
