"Be at home in a Grizzly kingdom."
Make our ecologically responsible Chalet in the Bella Coola valley your private wilderness home. Live in rustic luxury along the banks of the Atnarko River, in the heart of Tweedsmuir Provincial Park- the gateway to the Great Bear Rainforest. We are one of a few private properties entirely located within Tweedsmuir Park. Our only neighbours are the finned, furry or feathered kind!
We are more than just a bed and breakfast. Enjoy an all-inclusive stay:
luxury accommodation; 3 gourmet, family-style meals & beverages daily; interpretive walks with accredited BC Commercial Bear Viewing Association guides; half day river eco-raft trip (subject to availability); yoga on the deck (overlooking the meadow and river) with an RYA 200 instructor; y-shing instruction; transportation/excursion fuel costs - including to and from Bella Coola Airport.
The Chalet offers two private rooms: one queen suite, with 3 piece bath that feels like you are nestled in the forest or, perched atop the chalet, a splendid king suite with a private deck and 4 piece ensuite bath with soaker tub overlooking the meadow and the Atnarko River. Warm yourself beside a roaring fire downstairs in the great room, while exchanging stories of adventure over a glass of fine wine, espresso or tea. Whatever your pleasure!
Our living philosophy is respectful coexistence, or “bears first”. We offer a small footprint/low impact experience that immerses you in the world of the grizzly. “We don’t ‘tour’ it, we live in it.”
‘Off grid’ solar powered ‘green’ home.
“Bear safe” organic garden & compost.
