| 5 min read

Not to be confused with the metropolitan city by the same name, Vancouver Island is more of a cluster of rainforests, wilderness, and small cities. Vancouver Island offers a slew of attractions as it is surrounded by the Vancouver Island Ranges, which offer a picturesque view of the rainforests and there are also some areas such as Tofino that offer gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean. Hiking, camping, kayaking, golfing, and fishing are all packaged into one beautiful island, and it is only waiting to be explored. There are also plenty of accommodations, including family resorts and wellness retreats in Vancouver Island. For the best stay, stay in a cabin and be one with nature along with your pet for you to be a few minutes away from all the possible adventures. For your convenience, here is a list of the best pet-friendly cabins on Vancouver Island, Canada.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) host status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and pet-friendly rules and regulations. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 21, 2024.
