Our stay on the InnChanter exceeded our expectations. We were thrilled to have such a unique place to stay near the hot springs so that we could enjoy them at sunrise, sunset, and anytime in between. The trip was further enhanced by Shaun: his stellar hospitality, his stories, his enthusiasm, and his fabulous cooking. Shaun, thank you for your attention to details that make your guests feel so warm and welcome (like setting the scene for such a magical moment when we returned from our late night soak and found the salon glowing from the flickering light of candles and the wood burning in the fireplace). Sensational!
Amazing food, host and tranquility aboard the Inn Chanter..A must do for everyone. Perfect place to chill, recharge or just kick back with family, away from all the pressures of life. Inn Chanter is that special place we are always looking to find.
Joe and I were there on May 6th/15 for an overnight stay. The boat ride from Tofino to Innchanter, our stay, the hot springs, our hike through the woods and our flight back on the float plane were all part of a very intricate surprise mothers’ day and fathers’ day present offered by our 4 children and coordinated by our daughters Cynthia and Samantha. Our host Shawn was the funniest, warmest and friendliest host we have ever met. Thank you very much for your hospitality Shawn, it was a great pleasure meeting you and sharing the most delicious meals. Keep up the good work and thanks for helping keep the whole thing a surprise all the way until the float plane. We will meet again. I recommend this place to everyone I speak with – by the way Shawn … do you need a cook, a deck help or a cleaning slave for the summer? Thank you so much …
Shawn. Our stay with you on Wednesday and part of Thursday was the best experience ever. It was unforgettable and we loved every minute of it. Thank you so very much for everything. You’re a fabulous host and cook. And if you do decide to sell innchanter keep us in mind. Cheers xo
We’re all going through Innchanter withdrawal today. WHERE IS SHAUN WITH MY AFTERNOON TEA AND SNACK???? WHY IS THERE NO-ONE HERE TO SERVE ME A 5 COURSE DINNER???? haha Thanks for everything – we had an amazing weekend! Special thanks for ordering fabulous weather just for us. Enjoy that Earl Grey Cream I left behind.
The InnChanter was recommended to us by a B&B host in Vancouver and we are so glad he did. After an hour on the whale watching boat we were wondering what we had let ourselves in for but when the InnChanter came into sight and five minutes of Shaun’s company made us sure we had done the right thing! The boat is charming and our Princess Room had a comfy raised bed, plenty of space and portholes which let in the morning light. The lack of shower shared toilet facilities was made up for by the close location of the hot springs. Our morning routine was to get up early(ish), row ourselves over to the hot springs dock, walk the 20 minutes along the board walk and have a dunk in the springs before the “tourists” arrived. Then it was back for a sumptuous breakfast. Choices then, of going on an adventure or chilling out chatting with other guests or reading a book on the sun deck? Shaun was more than happy to organise adventures including walks to remote beaches on the other side of the peninsular or a walk (trek) up a river for a swim in a pool under the waterfalls. At night time the stars are the brightest and biggest we had ever seen and for a real treat – take a boat out in the pitch black and watch the fish being lit up by the bio luminescent algae – looked like a scene from a sci fi film! Magical. And then there’s dinner. Not sure where to begin but Shaun is not only an exceptional host, he is also a fantastic chef. Our evening meals taken with the other guests in the beautiful, panoramic diningroom, were out of this world. We picked fresh samphire for our salad and ate salmon and halibut so fresh it was unbelievable! The living room was cosy with a roaring fire when the evenings get chilly. Don’t forget to bring water shoes and a torch! So if you are up for an adventure this is certainly for you. Be prepared to mix in with the other guests and row yourself to land and you’ll have an amazing time. Take the float plane back to Tofino (Shaun will organise this for you) – you won’t be disappointed.
Thank you so much to Shaun and the crew on the InnChanter! My amazing man Ian took me there as a surprise for my birthday and it could not have been more perfect…I was pretty much speechless the whole time. The food was out of this world and the staff were so friendly and made me feel right at home. Our room was beautiful and Hotsprings cove was the most magical place!! I really did feel like a princess! Thank you to everyone!! It was the most incredible birthday I have ever had!!!
A first for all of us. This was one of the high points of our trip to the west coast and I have been recommending it to friends ever since. Kathy and Steve were amazing hosts and the meals were among the best I have ever tasted. First class. Hopefully the 2 husky/shepherd cross puppies who befriended us on our walk to the Hot springs will be adopted to good homes. We almost took them home!
The atmosphere of the InnChanter and the Cove is phenomenal. I am writing this months after I spent part of my summer on the boat. The adventure and the conversations, the FOOD, the stars at night… I can go on and on about how awesome the experience was for me. Thank you, Shaun, for the fantastic company. You have the most inspiring and fantastic stories, and the soul of the boat and the very natural surroundings made it all the more… “InnChanting.”
I just got home today and I had an amazing time, My dad Drew and his girlfriend Sue brought me and I just can’t get over how great it was, I will definitely be back next year, Shaun your food was AMAZING.
Thanks for the great hospitality!! PS I might be your new “slave girl” next summer
When I was in Tofino the third week in July I asked a friend, “What is the one thing I should do when I’m here?” He said, “The number one thing you should do when visiting Tofino is go to the Inn Chanter.” Literally, the next day my two friends organized a flight with Tofino Air and had the day planned out… they were 100% right. I’ve never been to such a place. Shawn, thank you so much for your hospitality, the laughs and conversation – your a great man and I’m so happy I had the pleasure to meet you. Your concept with the Inn Chanter is like nothing I’ve seen before. I felt like one night there was like a week at day camp – on steroids Thanks so much for the fantastic food, and that’s an understatement. You are truly an amazing cook. The smoked salmon was bang on, and your mom’s baked cookies hit the spot when we got there. The hot springs was a great hike and we were lucky enough to have nice weather and see a fantastic sunset. This is a ‘must do’ when visiting Tofino, and I can’t wait to visit again. Thanks again for the memories.
Lori & I had a wonderful time over the 2011 Labor Day Weekend on the InnChanter. Mark & Austin made on board conversation easy & fun. The food was amazing… even if Mark had to use brown bread for the Puff Pastry Breakfast. Kayaking, rowing (sorry about my superhuman strength breaking the oarlock) walking the boardwalk in the dark with borrowed flashlight… all made for a weekend away like we’ll never forget. Thanks…
