About Marilyn McEwen & Lance Blackwell

We moved here to Ucluelet from Vancouver in 1997, and added the one-bedroom suite in 2007.

Marilyn McEwen & Lance Blackwell purchased this house in 1997

Why Marilyn McEwen & Lance Blackwell chose Ucluelet

We loved the idea of a waterfront property, having lived on a floathome in Vancouver for 11 years prior to moving here. The half acre property allows us to maintain privacy for ourselves & our guests. The West Coast of Vancouver Island has a rugged beauty that is unmatched anywhere else in B.C.

What makes this house unique

There is always something to watch on the waterfront -- fishboats coming & going, sea lions frolicking, bald eagles fishing, kayakers meandering by.

A great home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were spacious. We stayed in the suite which was very comfortable. The bed was very comfy and it was great to hear the sea lions right outside our door. It was great to have fixings for breakfast and the kitchen was well stocked with the basics. I will definitely go back.

Amazing views with warm comforts!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Ucluelet! The suite was quiet with amazing views. It was so nice to have our dog welcomed as well. The property is in walking distance to trails and downtown. The amazing surfing beaches are only a 15 minute drive. We would love to stay again.

Our stay at Anchors Inn was relaxing and restorative and delightful in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We knew the moment we stepped into our suite that we wanted to extend our stay! Why go through the hassle of looking anywhere else? Anchors Inn was cozy and clean. The kitchen was very well equipped and thoughtfully stocked with basics for our first breakfast. Main room had a fireplace and cozy views with comfortable couches. The bedroom was very comfortable and spacious. Discovering a hot tub heated and waiting for us was a special surprise!

Feeling right at home!

  • 5 of 5

Marilyn's cozy suite feels like I never left my home.. but with a side or talkative seals right outside your door! The comfy couches, very comfy bed, hot tub, private beach and all the small touches, made us feel so very relaxed for the few days we stayed there. The kitchen is stocked and they even left coffee, eggs, orange juice and English muffins to have a yummy breakfast. Our puppy loved the carpet throughout the house as she's older and hardwood floors are slippery for her. I also adore that Marilyn donates the pet fee to the local SPCA. The hosts are as accessible as you want them to be! When you need them, they are very communicative... If you don't, they give you all the privacy you want! The drive into town to the COOP and the local restaurants is incredibly short, as is the drive to the Wild Pacific Trail. If you want to visit Tofino, you are only a 30 minute drive away (20 only to Long Beach). Overall, we loved our stay and would definitely return!

Relaxation and beauty in equal measure. Anchors Inn is the perfect home base for exploring Ucluelet.

  • 5 of 5

Anchors Inn has two cabins and a fully furnished, modern suite that includes a fully equipped kitchen, a cozy gas fireplace, a private hot tub and more, all overlooking a wild, rocky beach that is only steps from the suite’s front door. My two dogs (who were made to feel very welcome) and I spent hours exploring the beach. We were entertained day and night by a large harbour seal who loved the sound of his own voice.

Our hosts were available to answer any urgent questions at all times, but they certainly made sure that we enjoyed total privacy during our stay.

If we return to Ucluelet again, Anchors Inn will definitely be our first choice for accommodation. We will also recommend Anchors Inn to friends and acquaintances planning trips to Ucluelet. We had a super relaxing, rejuvenating time.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place to stay, well maintained, roomy with all the kitchen amenities. We liked the quiet private surroundings (the barking seals in the harbour one morning was a great touch and added to our enjoyment of this place). Although we didn't bring our dog this time it was evident that they are welcome here.

Marilyn and Lance are lovely people, not intrusive at all but helpful when needed. They provided breakfast items, very handy and appreciated. For groceries we shopped at the local co-op on Peninsula St and of course hit the local liquor store, both well stocked!

Really enjoyed staying at the Anchors Inn, highly recommend it.
