Our apology: our premises ARE NOT suitable for people with restricted mobility!

A holiday at our homestead will give you an opportunity to discover Gwaii Haanas from the perspective of its long time residents. Our knowledge, experience and hospitality will make you feel right at home in Gwaii Haanas.  Most of our guests often comment they don't feel like "tourists" or that we provide "tours" in the area.  We try the best we can to make you feel part it all.  Our approach gives you a deeper understanding and a unique experience to what it is like to live in Gwaii Haanas as a modern homesteader..
 
Visit with the people who know Gwaii Haanas best!

OUR HOMESTEAD:

We are located in a sheltered bay called Rose Harbour, deep within Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage site. The area is located at the Southern tip of Haida Gwaii.  Rose Harbour is on the Northern side of Kunghit Island, the largest Island south of Moresby Island.  MAP
Our location is well suited for sea kayaking from beginners to experienced outdoor people .  Our home (right) is adjacent to the guesthouse (left) and joined by a gravel path and two flights of stairs (10 steps each).  Our homestead is surrounded by virgin rain forests on land and the ocean in the front is our "road" to explore the area by boat or sea kayak.  Our facilities are rustic but comfortable.  All the buildings are powered with solar energy for lighting and communication.  You can also charge your batteries for your electronic equipment like cameras and laptops.

THE GUESTHOUSE:

We have 4 rooms with a wonderful view of the area. Each room is equipped with a double size bed or two single beds as required.  The common room is heated with a woodstove where you can sit and relax with the other guests.  Cold running water is available in the common room with one tap equipped with a filter to provide safe drinking water.  A small propane cook top and a kettle are always available with tea or coffee whenever you need a fix. A composting toilet with a fantastic view is located in the guesthouse. The communal shower is located in our greenhouse surrounded by grape vines and flowers.  Old growth forest surrounds us to offer you the opportunity to explore a temperate rain forest ecosystem right from our doorstep.  The common room opens up to an outdoor cedar deck overlooking Rose Harbour and Houston Stewart Channel.  Smoking and pets are not permitted inside any of the buildings.

 

OUR DWELLING:
The main floor of our house is always open to everyone.  Meals are prepared and served at our table with a great view of Rose Harbour.  Our greenhouse shelters our shower set amongst fruit trees, flowers and grape vines.  Hot running water is provided from our wood burning cook stove and solar water collectors.  Our organic garden surrounds the house protected by a tall fishnet fence to keep the introduced specie, the deer, at bay.
 

 

 

MEALS:
Served in a communal setting with our guests, friends, staff and family.  Due to Canadian Dept of Fisheries regulation, our business cannot serve (sell) fresh seafood when staying at the guesthouse.  But our family will gladly share the catch of the day during meals at no cost to you if you happen to be at the right place at the right time...  We try the best we can to provide fresh produce from our garden when available in season.  We can usually accommodate people with food restrictions if they let us know in advance.
